Arrow Season 5: Will Felicity Become an Action Hero?
Felicity Smoak started off as a fan favorite on Arrow, providing the comic relief on a show that desperately needed it. But many fans have become frustrated with the increasing focus and changed direction of her character, particularly the #Olicity debacle. Now the show seems to be pulling back on the romantic relationships involving Felicity, and finally turning her into a superhero in her own right.


Last season, when Felicity was apparently paralyzed, many fans thought that the show would follow through on the teasing and make her a version of Oracle. But then, she finally got her superhero name—Overwatch—because Oracle "was already taken." And now that the paralysis has been walked back, Felicity might become an action hero, especially considering how much training Emily Bett Rickards has been doing lately.
