In Arrow S05E05, Tobias Church hires a vigilante to kill Green Arrow.

He even attempted the deed:

But who is this vigilante, is he some straight from the comic book character like Human Target or did he just come out of air for the show?

As far as we can tell, this character was invented for the show, though the writers don't seem to think so.

In the end credits, the character is identified as Scimitar:

Although the writers claim that this character is a "big DC universe character", there's no DC character I could find named Scimitar. There is a Marvel character named scimitar that bears some resemblance to the character in this show, but I doubt that's who they intended.

It's also possible they just got the character's name wrong.

    When I first saw the character, I thought it was Deathstroke again, since the armor is so similar. – Thunderforge Nov 5 '16 at 22:13
  • @Thunderforge That's also what I thought. But I was kinda expecting the son of Slade somehow aged or not aged, because of Legends of Tomorrow episode, where the similar guy appeared. :-) – FanaticD Nov 18 '16 at 16:40
