I thought I might kick off a series of articles based on what characters the Moviepilot fans would like to see made into movie or TV adaptations. Today I've decided to focus in on some DC villains I believe would be awesome to see adapted for [Arrow](series:720988). All of these characters are personal preferences, but if I know about a character that is a fan favorite, I'll be sure to include them. Be sure to vote at the bottom of the page for who you want to see next!
For future reference, I'm willing to do any and all characters you want to see, be it Marvel or DC. I just want to give a shout out to SoulSurvivorsGaming for giving me the inspiration to do these types of articles.
Everyman (Hannibal Bates)
Everyman is a shapeshifter, who can physically duplicate another person after eating part of their body. He was generally unpopular with his teammates, mostly due to his searching for components of his teammates' living matter (e.g. hair and toenail clippings) to eat. It was later revealed that he had killed his teammate Skyman, and had been masquerading as him for quite some time. During the impersonation, he 'assisted' Natasha Irons in her investigation of Lex Luthor's super-human program. Skyman's ravaged body was shown; Hannibal stated that though he only needs a small portion, he just likes the taste.
Thanks to Luthor's Exo-gene program, Everyman is able to duplicate any organic lifeform, provided he eats a small portion of it first. His duplication is far more than skin deep. All physical evidence reads as identical to whoever he is impersonating.
Now this guy, is extremely crazy. His alter ego's name is literally a combination between two of the most famous fictional killers: Hannibal Lecter and Norman Bates. He literally eats part of his victims to transform himself into them. I wouldn't mind seeing his origin twisted to fit the needs of the show, but his powers need to stay the same. Since Arrow is somewhat stepping in the direction of the dark and strange with Cupid and Count Vertigo, I think Everyman would be a perfect choice. Plus, Hannibal Bates was a name on the Arrow's list in season 1, so he already exists somewhere. Arrow has already brought some characters from Oliver's list to life, like the upcoming Daniel "Brick" Brickwell, so why not Everyman?
Leer and the Skylarks
I honestly can't find any reliable information about Leer and the Skylars, which is very disappointing. I read the New 52 issues with them in it, so I can give some sort of general description without having any sources as proof. Basically, Leer is a deranged scientific genius who obsesses with collecting DNA and modifying animals for survival of a "environmental upheaval". He does inhumane experiments on animals that will eventually kill them. The Skylarks are his triplet daughters who are obsessed with the Green Arrow. They lure Green Arrow into Leer's lair (say that five times fast) and, of course, chaos ensues. Green Arrow actually falls for one of the Skylarks who seems to want to be apart from her sisters.
Leer and the Skylarks would be interesting characters to be adapted into the TV universe. Their story could be adapted to fit within Starling City, possibly three identical thieves stealing some famous person's DNA, which leads the Arrow to investigate. Now, I recognize that having identical triplets like the Skylarks with a TV budget isn't exactly the most plausible thing, but we can still hope, right?
A complete mystery, the man known as Onomatopoeia first appeared within the pages of Green Arrow. After killing two lesser-known vigilantes, he set his sights upon the Arrow family, seriously injuring Connor Hawke. He later tracked his prey to the hospital to finish him off, but was stopped by a blood-transfer weakened Oliver Queen. After Connor's successful surgery, Onomatopoeia fought the elder Green Arrow, doing quite well never the less being hit with several arrows. Despite falling from the hospital roof during the fight, Onomatopoeia was able to escape before Green Arrow even had a chance to see where he had fallen.
Not much is known about his past except his secret identity has a family and his house has a secret trophy case with the masks of all the super heroes he's killed on display.
C'mon now, Arrow producers. Why would you skimp out on such an awesome character like Onomatopoeia? Mr. Blank was an interesting character, but he just seemed like another villain of the week. Onomatopoeia would be an awesome character to adapt for television. Just imagine him making his own sound effects as he duels with the Arrow. IGN even said that Onomatopoeia was "one of the coolest new villains of the decade". Seriously? Just add him to the roster already.
