Please correct:
Arrow has been one of the most successful TV series ...

'Good poll.

I noticed one small typo: in the first sentence, "eight" should be "eighth" with an "h" on the end. 

Thanks. :)

Wait a second. I admit the version is very different, but Felicity Smoak is from the comics! So is Nyssa! An Lyla (she will fulfill her Harbinger role from Crisis this crossover event)! 

Oh, and there's an error in Nora Darhk's name which was incorrectly spelled as Darkh.

My bad with Nyssa, I looked for her under Nyssa Al-Ghul and found nothing, but indeed she existed.

In the case of Felicity, I did found the Firestorm character, but other than the name, she is completely different so I decided to list her appart.

When I made the list I took the same decision with Lyla since she got nothing to do with the Harbinger from the comics, at that time I was unaware that she would appear as that character in the upcoming crossover, I hope she will be a doppelganger from another universe so the regular character remains original enough to be a valid option on the poll.

Pencho15 one friend of mine read through all of Felicity's appearances for his fansite and his verdict was that character is much closer to her comic book form than many people would assume. I'm not that big on Firestorm comics from which she originates, so I can't say myself, but key aspects of character were still adapted, unlike John Diggle who is more or less an original creation (which was since transplanted to comics continuity and linked to John Stewart Green Lantern on the show itself).

I certainly regret not having that information before. The only Firestorm comics I read were with the New 52 and Felicity Smoak wasn't in them.
I read what I could find in the Internet about the original character, but found nothing that made it similar to the TV Version and so I took it as someone who only gave her name but nothing else. Thanks for the info, unfortunately I can't do nothing to correct the poll now.

Pencho15, admittedly some Arrowverse characters are merely nods with names (sometimes partial or changed names), but CW showrunners do their research and use dozens of comic book characters of varying relevance.

Hi Pencho, I left this message on the re-push request thread, as well;

I just realized, after re-pushing it, that "eighth" is now missing the other "h" that it originally and correctly had: "eighth" has an "h" before and after the "t."

If you change it to "eighth," which is correct, I'll be happy to re-push it again.
