In the DC Comics, Ted Grant is a member of the Justice Society for America, as well as the mentor and trainer of other masked vigilantes, including the Black Canary. On Arrow, Ted "Wildcat" Grant will be a former boxer who now runs a gym for underprivileged youths. A man with a mysterious past, he will play a pivotal role in Laurel Lance's (Katie Cassidy) arc.
Speaking of the new season, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg recently revealed to TVGuide.com that Laurel will be getting a new love interest. Could Wildcat be it? We'll find out when Arrow premieres Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 8/7c on The CW.
