Stephen Amell's Arrow may not have super powers and it doesn't appear that he's likely to need them if a preview of the CW drama series' first seven episodes is any indication.

The pulsating two-minute Arrow preview screened over the weekend at New York Comic-Con and offers a look at what's ahead -- including John Barrowman's mysterious character, thus far only known as the Well Dressed Man. (Check out an exclusive first look at Barrowman here.)

In the clip, Oliver (Amell) fights, shoots, runs, tumbles, jumps and, yes, kills,  as he vows to exact revenge on those responsible for the downfall of his beloved Starling City.

"If it's not going to be the courts and it's not going to be the cops, then it's going to be me," he says in the preview, which like the series will in each episode, also flashes back to his time on the island.

Elsewhere, WDM requests a visit with Ollie's mother, Moira (Susanna Thomson), an Arrow goes toe-to-toe with the a who's-who of comics all-stars including China White (Kelly Hu), Deadshot (Michael Rowe) and the Huntress (Jessica De Gouw).

And not to be disappointed, Amell's now famous abs also make an appearance -- only this time with a message written on his chest.
