DC has just made a major change to two Justice League members

If the canon of decades has proven anything, then it is that the members of the Justice League have been through some strange things. The heroes of DC’s premiere super team have been through all sorts of crazy and different adventures that stretch from the golden age to today. That seems to be the case in one of DC’s latest series, Aquaman / Green Arrow: Deep Target, who threw two Justice League pillars into an unexpected situation.

The question is bookers of the organization Scorpio, which performs tests on new technology, which seems to have the ability to transport objects from the past to the present – and apparently accidentally combine DNA, if they do. Then, two years later, the reader follows Green Arrow as he dives to Atlantis, which eventually culminates in him standing face to face with Aquaman. As we quickly learn, things are not as they seem, as Arthur Curry is actually the green arrow in this scenario, while Oliver Queen is Aquaman – and none of them know how to change.

After the two sparrows, they come to an agreement that they can work together to get to the bottom of their scenario. Oliver and Arthur return to the surface world and refer to each other as “Oliver Curry” and “Arthur Queen”. As the end of the problem suggests, the couple’s switcheroo may be the result of Scorpio’s experiments, and the group’s leader hopes to get them “back” very soon.

This twist adds a whole different layer to the narrative of Deep goal, one that readers may not be able to telegraph when reading the question for the first time. Twist by Oliver and Arthur, who inexplicably change body, abilities and life, is smart on several levels – both because the two have similar blonde facial hair, which makes switcheroo a real visual surprise. Plus, the DC stories about Green Arrow and Aquaman have always run somewhat side by side, as both debuted eighty years ago in separate stories of the exact same edition of More fun comics.
