A most disturbing incident from Green Arrow: Quiver

This is the kind of thing that's gross to many people -- so, if you're eating or feeling queasy, you should probably stop reading right now.

There's one scene from Green Arrow: Quiver that's always disturbed me. No, it's not related to Stanley and his Monster, or any of the other, obvious things. It's this:

Oliver (Green Arrow) Queen has been dead for a while and has been somehow, mysteriously brought back to life (actually, Hal [Green Lantern/Parallax/Spectre] Jordan is responsible, but Ollie doesn't yet know that). He runs into Aquaman, who then brings him to the JLA watchtower on the moon to surprise the other heroes. Aquaman has Ollie travel via the watchtower's teleportation system, which isn't exactly ... ahhh ... FRIENDLY to Ollie's digestive system:



Okay, I think it's pretty obvious that Ollie has been busy tossing his cookies. But THEN, Wonder Woman walks up to him, AND ...

NOW, unless Ollie has Breath Mint arrows or Toothbrushing arrows -- and he somehow managed to use one of 'em between losing his lunch in the transporter tube and getting smooched by Wonder Woman -- I think it's safe to assume here that Wonder Woman just sucked down a load of Green Arrow De-Food breath.

Dunno what this says about Wonder Woman. Maybe it's HER way of "Praying to Dionysus." Who knows?

Wonder Woman has faced death, retcons and John Byrne. She can handle such a bad breath.

Hmm. I had not noticed the inherent grossness in that before. Maybe it was more of a light lip brushing and she was too polite to mention anything to Ollie?

Or, she has a vomit fetish.

This is why logical people shouldn't read comic books. You notice the little things :)

Really, a hug would have been just fine if he smelled funky, right?
