The CW’s Arrow has broadened its horizons quite a bit, to begin Season 1 as a loose Batman Begins homage, then spread to superpowers and magic over the next few seasons, though most fans have called for a return to the series’ roots. So it is with Season 5, as producers promise an end to any magical big bads, and a return to the gritty side of superheroes.

There’s a long road between here and Marvel’s Netflix Defenders, let alone a third season of Daredevil, but one has to wonder how the Man Without Fear fares under a team dynamic.
