Oliver Queen is granted a second chance at life and, despite the dangers and pitfalls of changing the timeline from the world that he knows, he embraces this second chance and all that comes with it to become the hero he was meant to be rather than the dark avenger he once was. The changes he makes sees a massive ripple effect that destroys the timeline he remembers, leaving him to face the future with nothing but his grit and his bow. His stand against Malcolm Merlyn's tyranny and horrifying plans for the Glades inspires other heroes to rise up and causes the President of the United States to ask him to helm a new initiative to bring together a team of government-sponsored heroes to do what one alone cannot.
(AKA The Riseverse: Rise of the Emerald Archer, Age of Heroes, Children of the Glades)
One minute she’s convulsing on a hospital bed, the next she’s lurching up in her own bed on the one-year anniversary of the sinking of the “Queen’s Gambit”. Dinah Laurel Lance doesn’t know how, why, or who, but somehow, she’s been granted a second chance at life, and she chooses not to waste it and decides to alter the course of her life, unwilling for it to end at the hands of a deluded man-child once again as a message for the two most important men in her life. If she is to die, Laurel decides, she will die because she made her enemies rage at her mere existence. The Black Canary will rise and spread her wings once more.
