You have been reading the comics right? All, that's currently missing for Roy to do right now is to say, "I'm two days from retirement, I'm gonna take Cheshire and spend the rest of my life on this new boat we got together. It's called the Speedy. I just want to help my good old friend Jason first and have one final adventure with him."

Then again, it can't be a shitty DC event unless something bad happens to Roy Harper.


Well, I hear in an incredibly creative move, he loses an arm. But don't worry,

And for him to think a red shirt would save him means he's basically a booth babe with no idea how tropes work in modern culture. Death by arrow-cat so Johns can hurry up and unveil Pink Arrow, Yellow Arrow, White Arrow, Black Arrow and the rest.

And the sudden unexpected canceling of Cyborg, after it was uncanceled, was a red herring.

If my blood pressure is common among most comic fans then we could get them with charges of eugenics. Let Warner's legal department of predominately copyright attorneys shuffle those papers!

You know I was kidding in my prior post. But Red Hood and the Outlaws spoilers. Roy shows up in the latest issue bailing Jason out from Bruce demolishing the ever-loving shit out of him for shooting the Penguin in the face. Given Jason's new outfit that too could be seen as a "homage" to Roy.

Damn... this even will really suck. How is it doing something bad to Roy Harper dooms an event to be mocked and made fun of forever more?

Probably not going to be Roy, either. CBR IIRC handicaps it as Kyle. Not sure I agree with everything they say, but overall, they're probably right. He seems to be the odd man out in that list as far as future plans.

No doubt DC is prepping the toy isles for the event with wooden coffins being rushed out to stores.

I've just gone thru some of this year's Titans issues. I can't see how it's not Roy. DC obviously despises him.
