This thought popped into my head a few days ago after watching Arrow and seeing how Mad Dog operates. He reminded me of Red Hood in his attitude towards justice, although most of the characters on the show seem to want to kill criminals every now and then. Now the backstory on him is different (and very good, too), but it’s hard for me to see that he’s not in some way CW’s version of Mad Dog. There are other people that mirror the DC characters, like Arsenal and Nightwing.
I may be late to this thought from others, but Mad Dog really does remind me of Red Hood. Does anyone else agree or have your own opinions, share them here.
