QThis site called TVLine revealed four new characters to appear in season 3 of Arrow! The first one is particularly intriguing.

DANIEL: Though Daniel could be a fake name to throw off spoilerholics, this 20something gent — a major recurring character for Season 3 — is a handsome, enigmatic and highly intelligent entrepreneur developing groundbreaking technology. (Picture a business magnate in Ryan Gosling’s body.) Though exuding charm and confidence in public, he privately harbors a tragic past that will drive him to become a tech-powered superhero. Watch for this formidable fella to be a love interest for Felicity and a rival of Oliver’s – both personally and professionally.

Daniel could refer to Daniel Garrett, the Blue Beetle of the Golden Age:

Is Daniel Garrett Rich though? Not really! Who is Ted Kord?

Ted Kord is basically what the description of Daniel suggests.

He is a handsome, enigmatic and highly intelligent entrepreneur developing groundbreaking technology. (Picture a business magnate in Ryan Gosling’s body.) Though exuding charm and confidence in public, he privately harbors a tragic past that will drive him to become a tech-powered superhero.

What fake name would writers give Blue Beetle Theodore Kord? The name of his mentor! Mr. Kord was the student of Daniel Garrett in college. Dan who was the Blue Beetle, died and passed the responsibility of being a superhero. Kord refused to use the SCARAB, so instead he became a superhero with no powers. Also, Ted has a company, which has been introduced on Arrow.

It's very exciting! Yet another superhero is to be introduced on Arrow and with Arrow! How could "Daniel" rival Oliver personally and professionally? Kord's company is succeeding, while Oliver is getting his back and another man is making his move on Felicity. So by rivalry, he wouldn't be a villain. In season 3 of Arrow, I'm guessing Ted Kord would become a superhero near the end of the season. He definitely is similar to Oliver by being a rich vigilante.

Should Blue Beetle get his own TV show?
