JLA #75: Depressed after the recent loss of his fortune, Green Arrow visits psychiatrist Dr. Oyal, only to have his aggressive nature obtain physical form. He quickly learns that the same thing has happened to the rest of JLA, likely due to recent encounter w/ Aquarius. Can each of the Justice Leaguers overcome the worst part of themselves?
Not long before Dr. Oyal's appearance in Justice League of America (vol. 1) #75 as Green Arrow's therapist, Green Arrow and Batman both revealed their secret identities to a mutual friend, psychiatrist Edmund Cathcart. This happened in The Brave and the Bold (vol. 1) #85.
Dr. Oyal was not therapist in the earlier issue, The Brave and the Bold #85, but he may have encouraged Oliver Queen to work with a therapist and he may even have referred Queen to Dr. Oyal.
