Here's our 1st look at Michael Jai White as Arrow's Bronze Tiger

One of the best martial artists in the DC Universe has made his way to Arrow, and we've got the first image.

Arrow, as a show, is very big on trying to eschew the super part of the superhero genre. Which means they have to be very careful who from the DCU they introduce, because most of them do have some kind of extraordinary ability.

But Bronze Tiger, for all his strength and agility, is not super -- he's just really, really good at what he does. And that makes him a perfect candidate for Arrow. And casting former Spawn actor Michael Jai White as the kung-fu master was inspired. Don't believe us? Check out the first glimpse we've seen of White as Bronze Tiger.

As you can see, the costume designers just might be going for a bit of a Wolverine look. And that sees us just fine. As for White himself -- he looks crazy but determined. We're not sure what elements of Bronze Tiger will be lifted from his comic incarnation, but that sums him up pretty well once you take his Suicide Squad days into account.

We dig it. How about you?
