Hey, he decided to give his fortune away because he couldn't stand being a rich fatcat, so if he can't afford pants that's his damn problem.

Well, to be fair, he has to go pantsless to let his asshole air out after eating his famous Chili.

Queen Industries did receive any of Obama's Stimulus money so I would expect as much.

CRY MOAR.

Anyway,

Coming this summer, the crossover event of the season!

Green Arrow and Hawkeye

If you're a criminal with a very slow gait, or just a deer, you better watch out!

Oh you're a person with a gun? Then you should be okay.

Green Arrow needs food badly.

Doesn't he normally just wear tights?

Not so fast there, Horatio.

The English Army of circa 1400 AD could have quite handily defeated the English Army of circa 1800 AD. Longbows have a much greater effective range and rate of fire than a Brown Bess or a Baker Rifle*. It wasn't until the advent of the rifled musket shooting conical projectiles that the common infantry long gun had a significantly greater effective range, and it wasn't until the advent of metallic cartridges that the rate of fire was comparable.



*Actually, both the rifle and the bow have the same approximate effective range, but the bow has a *MUCH* greater rate of fire.

That's great, but I'm not sure how you got from "two contemporary fictional guys with bows" to "let's look at England's army two and six centuries ago."

Kalanga: Solomon Grundy want pants too!


Damn, beaten to it. I actually dressed as a pantsless Solomon Grundy at a science fiction convention.

Just the thought of such a sight makes me quiver.

That last line, are you huffing glue? Remind me the last time you heard of a bow unloading 3000 rounds per minute.

Are you?

He was specifically referring to the Brown Bess and Baker Rifle. Not modern weapons.


If you think you can get 3000 rounds per minute out of a Brown Bess, you're doing something a lot stronger than sniffing glue, as that would be about 1000 times their normal rate of fire.

I'm funny that way.

Actually, I'm an archer, and a shooter, both modern guns and flintlocks. I'd be more worried about going up against a competent archer than a mediocre shooter.

If we had better Bow & Arrow laws this sort of thing wouldn't happen.

But that's his special arrow!
