Loving the new Arsenal

#1 Posted by Theodore (3445 posts) - - Show Bio

I just read the 3rd issue of Rise of Arsenal. It's great. 4.5/5 the new Arsenal is so dark. I feel bad for him.

Well, you're entitled to your opinion. I'm entitled to mine. This comic makes me want to retch.

I'm hating this comic ALOT.

I really hope this comic is just the road to getting him back to Outsiders era Arsenal.  I like him a lot more when he's Arsenal.  Red Arrow is just a Green Arrow knock off, while Arsenal is something Roy has that is all his own.

He is joining Deathstroke's titans so no such luck

THIS is pretty much the "new" Arsenal.

I love it when they take characters and beat them down as far as they can go...then you get to see that character come back even better....it's not all rainbows and lolly pops for these characters....they're doing dangerous things and bad things happen...what's happening to Roy right now is no different then what happens to a lot of real life people who go through major trauma

exactly, I love to see how he is going through all these issues... dealing with his daughters death and going nuts with drugs. It's good stuff, his fight with Dick was good. JT Krul is great.

@geraldthesloth: Now he didn't eat the cat, he just thought that it was his dead daughter. Because that totally happens.

I loved this story but at the same time hated what it did to Roy's character. It ruins everything that is so unique to him.
