Oliver Queen was a spoiled son of a major CEO in Starling City.  When he goes on a boat ride with his father, the ship gets capsized and Oliver ends up on an island where he is forced to survive for five years.  Here, he learned tools of survival while being confronted with life threatening situations.  When he is found and returned to Starling City, he is a new man, charged with a mission to cleanse his decaying city.  To do this, he becomes a vigilante, inspiring fear into the criminals who have plagued Starling City for too long.  However, Oliver’s past comes back to haunt him.  His five years on the island include baggage that affects his family and work.  How does he systematically take back his city?
