The name of the island they found me on is Lian Yu.
It’s mandarin for “purgatory.”
I’ve been stranded here for 5 years.
I’ve dreamt of my rescue every cold black night since then.
For 5 years, I have had only one thought, one goal…survive…
Survive and one day return home.
The island held many dangers.
To live, I had to make myself more than what I was, to forge myself into a weapon.
I am returning not the boy who was shipwrecked but the man who will bring justice to those who have poisoned my city.
My name is Oliver Queen.
