Bent Arrow

Normally, when an arrow gets bent into a curve it becomes useless. Not if you’re the Green Arrow, though. In a move born of desperation, GA attaches a line to the Bent Arrow and fires. Somehow, the arrow follows a helix path and pulls the line in that path like a ribbon. Somehow this shot catches the target harmlessly instead of killing him.

GA used a lot of bent arrows in the early days. They were always getting damaged for some reason, and they always managed to do the job just fine. It makes you wonder why he ever bothered to make straight ones.
