This one is for fans of the TV show Arrow, fans of Power Girl, or fans of Firestorm!
Back in Green Lantern/Power Girl #1 (Oct. 2000), Felicity Raymond (formerly Felicity Smoak) was shown working for Karen Starr (Power Girl’s secret identity). Apparently Felicity’s computer skills earned her a high-ranking position in Karen’s company, Starrware.
Green Lantern/Power Girl #1 (part of the Green Lantern: Circle of Fire crossover) was written by Scott Beatty, pencilled by Pete Woods, and inked by Andrew Pepoy & John Stanisci.
As you can see in the first panel above, Felicity appears older in the comics as compared to Emily Bett Rickards performance on Arrow. This is understandable as by this point in comics Felicity had quite a bit of life experience: a former manager for a New York software company, filed a lawsuit against Firestorm for negligence, married Ed Raymond, helped raise her college-aged stepson Ronnie Raymond, and furthered her career at other companies. She was a successful woman and not one to be crossed.
For contrast in appearance, below you’ll find an image of Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak on Arrow. Who knows, maybe this Felicity Smoak will ending up working for Power Girl someday too!
My thanks to Ed “The Unique Geek” for the heads-up on this comic appearance!
Support Firestorm (and Felicity Smoak)! Fan the flame!
