It is confirmed that the arched vigilante Artemis is the new addition to the roster of Arrow in the coming season 5.
Last season we already saw Madison McLaughlin as Evelyn Sharp, when she impersonated Black Canary searching for revenge for her parents deaths on Damian Dark.
According to Variety. McClaughlin will make her Season 5 debut in the season’s second episode and her arc will play out over multiple episodes as she forges her new heroic identity.
“Artemis is a character featured in the Young Justice animated series who was loosely based on the Young Justice comic book character Arrowette. The daughter of villains Sportsmaster and Tigress, she became Green Arrow’s sidekick after Roy Harper, Speedy, went solo. Arrowmay be setting her on a similar path, setting Green Arrow, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), up to be the mentor and role model that leads Artemis onto a more noble path after her morally questionable actions in Season 4.”
Arrow season 5 will come out on October 5, at 8:00 pm. on the CW.
