Hey there I was Checking out The Rise of Arsinal and I was wondering is DC going to turn poor Roy into a bad guy? I mean he has it pretty bad first his kid gets killed, his home get distroyed, he gets his arm cut of and he goes back to drugs. Can somebody please fill me in?

@Kid_Omega_Prime: Nope!

They retconned all that stuff so he's a good guy again!

I think he's going the anti-hero route.

Agreed. He seems like one of the characters they're winding back a lot.

Not quite, he may have his arm back and his daughter/relationship with Cheshire/Jade never happen soooo no Lian (his daughter). I read that the writer might bring Jade in but right now we're to think it never happened but it could end up they have some kind of history but it will probably be talked about eventually. His past with Green Arrow and as Speedy still stands so his struggle with drugs happened. his time as Arsenal before "Cry for Justice" he was kind of teetering on that anti-hero line like he is now. (sorry if I sound like one of those annoying know it all people but I looked into it the other day)
