Arrow season 3 will be seeing a familiar yet new face in the world of the Archer Green Arrow. Being played by Brandon Routh, Ray Palmer , The Atom.TVLine.com has stated."An unparalleled scientist and inventor, Ray will play an unexpected role in the lives of Oliver (Stephen Amell) and (rumored love interest) Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) as the new owner of Queen Consolidated. Palmer's plans for Queen Consolidated's Applied Sciences Division will be shrouded in mystery."
The question I have is will Ray Palmer start out with his powers,and just hide them from the public's view,or will they try and incorporate his origin in how he built his belt buckle that held remnants of a white-dwarf star.If this Ray Palmer will be a good ally to the arrow and his friends or will he start out more of a villain type of character.Also where will they take the atom? Since he is able to shrink to a small size while retaining the strength they could make some interesting stories when it comes to how he uses his abilities, going into phone lines spying on different characters gaining information about them. Going into someones blood stream even, there is a large array of possibilities for Ray Palmer in Arrow Season 3.
I would also like to think about this possibility,since they say Felicity is a rumored love interest of Ray Palmer ,then that would be some great drama to be had. Since it was so obvious Oliver adores Felicity and she seems to love him but had to move on.We could see maybe Ray becoming jealous of Oliver and his relationship with Felicity since she does work for The [Arrow](series:720988), but Ray wouldn't know that, well not anytime soon.It could be Ray becomes Jealous and tries to keep tabs on Felicity to see what she is up to,maybe try and drive a wedge between her and Oliver. Just a thought I had when it came to the three of them,could be an interesting love triangle if they decide to go that route, probably not though.
Arrow has been a show for me,and some close friends where the characters and world of that universe is growing and growing, and it shows that this show is here to stay. I mean having Felicity in the comics is what I call a win.No matter what be it Ray Palmer or the Atom it is exciting news to have more familiar names within this world. Hopefully we get a look of The Atom's suit pretty soon.
