Green Arrow...Classical Liberal!
In my opinion Oliver Queen is a liberal, but in the classical sense. Why would a man who so vocally challenged the motives and practices of corporate "fat cats" be the type who would rather turn that power over to the government; arguably the biggest haven for the fat cat? A true practitioner of progressive heroism knows power belongs to, and with, the people and taxation is a form of servitude to the state. We are accountable to each other for our actions, and inactions, but no government entity should be given too much sway over our lives.
