Roy Harper is is one of DC Comics' most longstanding characters, created as Speedy by Mort Weisinger and George Papp as Speedy, the teen archer sidekick of the superhero Green Arrow in 1940. He went on to become a core member of the Teen Titans but as an adult, casts off his Speedy identity as the superhero Arsenal. and later, Red Arrow as he joined the Justice League.
Recently, he died accidentally at the hands of fellow Titan and Justice Leaguer, Wally West, The Flash in the Heroes In Crisis event comic book by Tom King and Clay Mann. But in the recent Death Metal series by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo, along with many other characters, he was brought back from the dead for one final battle.
But what now? Well, Bleeding Cool has been hearing a lot about DC Infinite Frontier – and especially the #0 issue, out in March and which is going to FOC this weekend. You can catch up with a few of them here and debate their veracity as usual all across the internet and call me whatever names you wish. But for Roy Harper fans, here's the news. He's back. How? It is unexplained. But he just… is. I am told to watch out for the Green Arrow & Black Canary story by Joshua Williamson, Alex Maleev, and Jordie Bellaire.
