| Hey, aren't you that plant lady, Poison Oaky?|
- Not to be confused with Merlin, the great medieval wizard.
A skilled archer, Merlyn was a member of the Secret Society.
Merlyn was a supervillain whose archery skills rivaled that of Green Arrow. Merlyn became a member of Grodd's Legion of Doom. At meetings, Merlyn was given a seat between fellow villains Lady Lunar and the Shark. Later, when Lex Luthor took control of the Legion, Merlyn was among those who showed little faith in his leadership. When Grodd was freed from imprisonment by Tala, Merlyn sided with him against Luthor. Merlyn, Bloodsport, The Key, and other villains fought in the Legion headquarters against Luthor and his sympathizers. He was not among those who made the final stand.
The depicted subject bears the likeness of Merlyn from the DC Comics; however, the DCAU character was never named on-screen, or otherwise. The title of this article is conjecture based on the character's likeness. Merlyn was conceived by Dick Dillin and Neal Adams as a counterpart to Green Arrow for the third comics incarnation of the Secret Society ("The Society") in Justice League of America #94. He would later become a recurring rogue for Green Arrow himself.
