10 Amazing Animated Archery Gifs

Because Batarangs are so last season. Having barely cheated death, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen returns to Starling City as a hardboiled vigilante archer. Don’t Arrow, Wednesdays at 9/8c, only on The CW.

1.

Ladies and gentlemen, please meet the lovechild of Hawkeye and Black Widow.

2.

Just call him the wick-er man. It’s like he’s making some kind of snuff film. Eh? Eh?

3.

So…how’d he do that? Our guesses include “bitten by a radioactive Robin Hood” and the word “MAGNETS” underlined three times.

4.

Archer and contortionist Lilia Stepanova had the good fortune of being one of the few contestants on America’s Got Talent that actually had, you know, talent.

5.

The only way this could’ve been improved: blaring Europe’s “The Final Countdown” over the Olympic loudspeakers.

6.

Bow and arrow + basketball = The Space Jam Games.

FADE IN:
Lebron pushes Bugs and Lola Bunny aside, gripping his bow in one hand and basketball in the other. He gazes across the post-apocalyptic wasteland.

“I volunteer as tribute!” he shouts before leaping into a hella cool slam-dunk.

7.

He’ll never admit it, but the mirror frame that trick shot mastermind Byron Ferguson is looking at here is completely empty. He willed those arrows to their targets with his mind.

8.

Ain’t no party like a redneck party…because a redneck party will light a bonfire with a flaming crossbow bolt.

9.

This is armless archer Matt Stutzman, who recently competed in — and won the silver medal in archery at — the London 2012 Paralympics. Nothing to joke about here; this is simply amazing.

10.

Meet archery legend Howard Hill. Contrary to popular belief, his inhuman accuracy did not come from his dapper mustache.

Inspired by The CW’s “Arrow.”

Devil-may-care playboy Oliver Queen’s core concerns were fast cars and faster living, but that was before the accident. Stranded alone on a deserted island, Queen recasts himself as a hardened survivor, willing to do whatever it takes to make it home alive. Long thought dead in the public eye, he returns to Starling City as the vigilante archer Arrow, hellbent on quashing the criminal element that’s run rampant in his leave.
