Kodiak, created for the New 52 by Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino, is a member of the criminal organization called the Outsiders.

Nowadays, they are led by the mysterious Golgotha, with other clan heads below them. Oliver Queen is pursuing the Outsiders to gain vengeance on the villain Komodo and to find out more about the secrets his father left behind.

Kodiak will make his first appearance in December’s Issue 26 and will then lead the charge in a bloody conflict in Issue 27. Lemire and Sorrentino’s Outsiders War story arc will last 6 issues in total and will reveal secrets about Oliver’s past throughout the conflict occurring in the present.
