Here's our 1st look at Colton Haynes all suited up as Arsenal in Arrow S3

Starling City is about to see the rise of a brand-new superhero, as Arrow’s Colton Haynes will suit up to join the fight against evil.

During the last season of The CW's Arrow, Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) found himself injected with Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke’s (Manu Bennett), Mirakuru serum as he began to train with Oliver Queen’s (Stephen Amell) green-clad superhero. But he was eventually cured after joining the good fight against Arrow's nemesis, and we were left to wonder if the non-superpowered Harper would ever don his own hero gear. Now we have an answer.

Apparently in between the end of season two and the start of season three, Roy Harper will have fully suited up in black and red leather as Arsenal, as a full-fledged, evil-fighting member of Team Arrow.

Have a look below, and note he has his own bow and Arrow-like mask now (plus the hoodie-style costume):

Arsenal will make his first appearance in the premiere episode of Arrow's third season, which is set to air Oct. 8 on The CW.

How are you guys liking Colton Haynes' sleek new hooded look as Arsenal?
