Other notable feats include his defeat of the Paper Monkey of the monkey fist clan, Shiva also a member was the only other person more skilled than paper monkey.

Archery: His skill with the bow and arrow are not as refined as his father but he has displayed abilities such as speed and precision with a bow which made him worthy of the “dragon’s blood tournament” which gathered the DC Comics best archers together. He was crowned champion at its end edging out the assassin Shado who’s skill rivaled his father Oliver Queen.

Powers: At one point he possessed a healing factor and high resistance to pain and injury.

Connor is the son of Green Arrow/Oliver Queen and Sandra Hawke. Connor was the result of a one night stand between the two. His father only learnt of his birth moments before he was born. He grew up unaware of who his father was. As a young man he was bullied often because of hi mixed race background and unique look. He grew to have quite the temper as well. His mother not knowing what to do with him confided that he was the son of Superhero Oliver Queen. Connor then feverishly gathered and read everything he could about his dad until finally his mother agreed to send him to the same ashram that Oliver had trained before becoming Green Arrow. Fore five years he trained as a kyudo archer, martial artist and Zen-Buddist. He later met his father when his dad came back to the monastery. Soon after however his dad died and he took over the mantle of the Green Arrow.
Over the years he befriended Green Lantern/Kyle Rayner, Wally West/Flash and joined the Justice League. His greatest test came however when he defeated the paper Monkey which lead to the monkey fist cult attacking all martial artists worldwide to regain their honor. He also defeated the Bamboo Monkey who had single-handedly defeated both Dick Grayson/Nightwing and Tim Drake/Robin at once. He then met Lady Shiva in combat and fought her almost to a standstill a feat not even batman can boast. When his father returns they move in together and he is seriously injured twice while his dad finally weds Black Canary. He also attends a tournament for the worlds greatest archer and comes out on top. During blackest Night he defeats his father. After DNA tampering he also gained a healing factor.
