Prepare to meet Arsenal, Arrow Fanatics.

Last week, we talked to Colton Haynes about what fans can expect from Roy Harper on Arrow Season 3 - and now The CW has gone ahead and painted a very clear picture:

It's Arsenal!

As Arsenal

Indeed, this is our first look at Haynes in the red hood that will officially place him on a Team Arrow. It's a look he'll debut on the October 8 premiere.

In DC Comics lore, Roy Harper turned into Arsenal in 1993 following decades as Green Arrow's sidekick, Speedy.

Arrow Season 2, meanwhile, was a challenging one for this character: He was unwillingly injected by Mirakuru serum and ended up going on a rampage that resulted in him killing a police officer.

Arrow Quotes

I've always wanted to say I've taken a bullet for someone and now I can. Yay.

Felicity

Felicity: What's going on? Ray?
Ray: Oliver Queen is the Arrow.
Felicity: What?
Ray: I have a 140 IQ and three PhDs, but it's pretty hard to insult my intelligence, but I'm pretty sure you just did. It all makes sense now. Your, ah, sudden disappearances, your apprehension of helping me with my mission. You've been working with the Arrow this whole time.
