In flashbacks to Oliver's (Stephen Amell) time on the island, we saw in previous episodes that he's trapped aboard a cargo ship named "Amazo". Of course, that's the name of the DC Comics robot villain who can mimic the powers of other super-powered individuals. Amazo is created by Professor Ivo, and in this clip from this week's all new episode of Arrow, titled League of Assassins, we see his debut on the show as played by Dawson's Creek alum, Dylan Neal. Is Ivo and his research the means and methods by which Black Canary eventually acquires her famed, Canary Cry?

"After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be – flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle – while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver’s own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine."

I wonder how they're gonna do Amazo if they go that far.
SnowMiser - 11/4/2013, 12:46 PM
Oh sheet.
GliderMan - 11/4/2013, 12:47 PM
Give me the Flash or give me death!

Give me Justice Inc or give me death!

Give me Grant Gustin in Justice League or give me death!
Nomis - 11/4/2013, 12:47 PM
I just want to see a younger version of the Sensei!

ALmazing - 11/4/2013, 12:48 PM
How do you Nolanlize Amazo?
ezio619 - 11/4/2013, 12:50 PM
Nomis-"ras al ghul" was a cool name drop but I hoped merlyn had trained under "The Sensei" toavoid comparisons by people who think this show is a Nolan rip off but im fine with it
ezio619 - 11/4/2013, 12:50 PM
Almight-the ship that oliver has been captured on is called"The Amazo"
MarkJulian - 11/4/2013, 12:52 PM
Hmmm...in addition to creating Amazo, Ivo also was obsessed with immortality. Could be a connection there with the Lazarus Pit and The League.
Nomis - 11/4/2013, 12:54 PM
@ ezio619 - At one time in the comics, the Sensei started a coup against Ras and for a short time was running the league of Assassins.

And he even had the Bronze Tiger under some hypnotic control which he used for assassinations, which could explain why he was working with China White earlier this season.

they're several directions this show can go just hope the rating continue to go up, so the budget can be larger for some of this. don't need smallville style nonsense with clark looking like the [frick]ing flash every ep smh..................... -_-
Luigi - 11/4/2013, 1:05 PM
I'm guessing I'm the only person who immediately thought of Dr. Robotnik from the Sonic the Hedgehog when I read "Dr. Ivo".
typicalfanboy - 11/4/2013, 1:18 PM
I wonder if amazo will just be a boat in this universe?
Ineedrevelation - 11/4/2013, 1:18 PM
This show just keeps getting better and better!!!!

Arrow's gonna get his mask soon too!
MercwithMouth - 11/4/2013, 1:30 PM
shit show...
soforizo - 11/4/2013, 1:30 PM
Sweet! I don't think I've seen Dylan in anything before, but he gives off a godo vibe in that clip.

I think Dr. Ivo's appearance will all take place much prior to his creation of Amazo, but in that short clip we can see his crazed inclination toward improving on the human race.
bazinga85 - 11/4/2013, 1:32 PM
Is it Wednesday yet?
CaptainPresley - 11/4/2013, 1:34 PM
hit show...
CaptainPresley - 11/4/2013, 1:35 PM
See what I did there? ;)
soforizo - 11/4/2013, 1:39 PM
@CaptainPresley

MercwithMouth suffers from Wernicke's dysphasia, he actual meant "great show..."
GliderMan - 11/4/2013, 1:48 PM
He hasn't said "You have failed this city" this season yet. I really hope they bring it back a few times.

Also, a really cool way to end an episode would be where General Zod breaks through all the satellites and everyones TV is going "YOU ARE NOT ALONE"
Ineedrevelation - 11/4/2013, 1:50 PM
@Captain...

bravo sir!

I'll be using that when Grif comes along
ezio619 - 11/4/2013, 1:51 PM
Gliderman-that was a cool line but the whole season is olvier going from The Vigilante to "The Arrow",becoming ahero and not trying to kill and so that line would not fit where his character is right now imo
Nomis - 11/4/2013, 1:52 PM
@ GliderMan - In the season opener he said that he had failed the city. ;)
MercwithMouth - 11/4/2013, 1:54 PM
I had to put that to see the reaction, lol.

Used to so many people doing it on AoS thread, wanted to turn the tides for once...

@ Captain, that was a good one, I'm quite impressed.

No, I don't like this show, but don't mind if others do. So don't worry, you won't see me trolling on here.
Just wanted to see how the other half lives, lol.
DanteSparda - 11/4/2013, 1:55 PM
Dr. Ivo Robotnik? Fück yes!!


WruceBayne - 11/4/2013, 1:57 PM
@beto- what is that gif from with the lady chasing the couple up the stairs?
bazinga85 - 11/4/2013, 2:00 PM
^Mama?
BatManiac - 11/4/2013, 2:02 PM
I hope Laurel never becomes Black Canary now, because her sister is so much hotter!
Optimus83 - 11/4/2013, 2:02 PM
Dr. Arthur Ivo. ...Amazo???
ezio619 - 11/4/2013, 2:22 PM
Batmaniac- yeah man and I like her better,i hope they kill laurel off so sara has to stay in the city and console her father and then she stays black canary but that's probably not gonna happen
JoeMomma29 - 11/4/2013, 2:48 PM
Yes that is awesome!!!!!!! Please give us Amazo!!!!!!!
Bread - 11/4/2013, 2:55 PM
Amazo is the name of the prison ship Oliver is on. My guess is that Ivo its Captain.
Bread - 11/4/2013, 2:57 PM
@Batmaniac- I totally agree. Plus Laurels a total bitch, I hope they kill her off.
JoeMomma29 - 11/4/2013, 3:01 PM
@ Bread

True but you never know maybe he creates Amazo and names him after the ship or the ship is code name and they end up using it.

Sheesh be positive LOL!
JoeMomma29 - 11/4/2013, 3:09 PM
So how many characters are we up to now?
ALmazing - 11/4/2013, 3:13 PM
@ManOfReal said "Party time! (Does the robot)"

I think you meant " Party time! (Does the Amazo)

@Nomis

wow, they tried REALLY HARD to DE-HUMANIZE Asian characters don't they?
I never knew about that character. Thanks for sharing.
JoeMomma29 - 11/4/2013, 3:19 PM
@ SunFire

There is a documentary based on Super heroes and comic books that ran on PBS. They really touched on the racism towards Asians and Blacks in comics from the 40's etc......

Lhornbk - 11/4/2013, 3:45 PM
I must say, I normally don't care if they use comic-accurate costumes, but I am extremely disappointed that Black Canary isn't wearing her fishnet pantyhose. Yeah, I know it wouldn't really make sense, but she would look really hot.
MightyZeus - 11/4/2013, 5:16 PM
Wow this is great. Glad they are bringing in Dr Ivo. Maybe he'll create the robot 'Amazo' in a later episode?
