Writer: Mike Grell
Artist: Dan Jurgens
So Morgan after his introduction to Oliver Queen and Dinah Lance gets to talking about his life. Morgan was curious how the world was in his twenty year absence. Tried to get back pay but that got him too much negative attention from the government. He is disillusioned with the world. Seems not much has changed and people are still fighting over nothing. While this is happening the crime boss that Morgan confronted last issue is out for revenge. He is angry that his asshole brother-in-law was wounded but more that his Rolls Royce was trashed. So he arranges for a blackout and the cities thugs to cause a commotion to distract the police. Then his men will move in on Oliver’s place. Needless to say Morgan, Oliver and Dinah have no problem taking out the thugs. Morgan decides to head back home.
So the two-part guest shot of Travis Morgan ends. It was an enjoyable story. Nice to see him back wandering the country and his observations. I love that Grell finally united the two characters since they do look so much alike. Except that Morgan is taller and older. There was a somber tone to this story but some humor was mixed in. This was a nice tribute Grell gave to his character to keep him alive in spirit for as we will see the Warlord will return.
On a side note I enjoyed Grell’s Green Arrow. I have a feeling that I will have to someday seek out more of this excellent series in the future.
