Does anybody like his new direction
Thinking back to an old NIGHTWING cover (see below) I kinda think that Roy/Arsenal/Red Arrow's new path was kinda ironic. Loosing a limb is so Luke Skywalker and yet it seems like everyone goes a cybernetic attachment (expect for evil Teen Titan Risk....who is now armless and usless). Loosing a child is ALWAYS tragic for many superheroes (Donna Troy lost her son - Robert and step-daughter - Jennifer, Garth/Tempest lost his son - Cerdian, Aquaman lost Auqababy) as some heroes could eaither cope with their lost or let insanity take over your life....which ROY has now done....from hero to VILLAIN.
In this cover it deals with Dick Grayson/Nightwing trying to control crime in his city....until he worked for DEATHSTROKE for a brief moment or two. Now that Roy has allied himself to Deathstroke and his new evil branch of Titans, it feels like ironic twist as Roy and Dick will soon cross paths.....
I don't like that his daughter died because she was such a big part of his character and completely changed him. Aswell as that being a recovered heroine addict makes him much more tragic and his new path just gets rid of everything important to him. The new arsenal is cool but I prefer old roy
