So… Arrow Season 5 has introduced The Vigilante this season and everyone is wondering who it is. Since the Arrow Writers said they know who it is but we won’t be getting a reveal till next season, I figured now is as good a time as ever to speculate. So, without further ado, here are my top ideas and speculations on who Arrow’s Vigilante is. (And I know they said he’s someone we have met but can we REALLY trust them?)
Number 1.) Greg Saunders. For those who aren’t as well versed in the lore of DC Comics, Greg Saunders was the 1st Vigilante , (Yes there are more than one Vigilante, but we’ll get to that later.) Greg was more of a western cowboy-ish hero similar to Jonah Hex. Because of this he would obviously be a revitalized and revamped version of Greg Saunders.
Number 2.) Adrian Chase. (Your minds right now… WHAAAAAAA?) As I mentioned above, there were actually 2 Vigilantes, Greg, and much later Adrian Chase. Adrian’s Vigilante was much more modern and look very similar to Arrow’s costume. Now, as you know Adrian Chase was also introduced this season but turned out being Prometheus. The writers said they did that on purpose to throw people off the scent. So, I’ve said before I do think if they went this route, which they might, Prometheus could have just stolen the Adrian Chase identity.
Number 3.) Paul Holt. I’ll be honest I don’t really believe this one but I’ve seen this theory thrown around so i figured why not. Now, Paul has been in Season 5 a considerable amount. And truth be told, it could be a hint towards something. And if the writers are telling the truth, this would be the only pick that would make sense.
