    Two Oliver looked like he put it together that the kid was his...and I don't see how. For all he knew she got pregnant from her next relationship. (someone told me the credits said the kid's name was William not Connor or Robert)

1. It's not hard to see a physical resemblance in your own child if you have one.

2. Even if Oliver didn't recognize some of his own features in his son, he did see the woman he had once slept with and accidentally got preganant. The kid was obviously her son, it's not that hard to put the pieces together since that kid would be the same age as Oliver's son. Oliver is very intelligent, he deserves to be given more credit that you gave him.

In saying that, it's perfectly plausible for Oliver to piece it all together.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
