Where is Roy Harper's Arm Now?

Posted by inferiorego (27805 posts) - - Show Bio

The aftermath of Justice League: Cry for Justice was shocking to most people. A hero has killed once again, but more importantly, a hero lost a limb. That's right, Roy Harper lost his arm, and although it was quickly replaced with a prosthetic arm that gave him above human strength, I keep wondering to myself, "Where did the old arm go?" 

I've read the Rise of Arsenal issues that are currently out, and the end of Cry for Justice, and I can't seem to figure out where that pesky right arm is. I don't remember any mention of what they did with it, nor did I see anyone sneak the arm off-panel. We may need to get The Riddler one this on to find out where the arm went.

Now, you just don't throw an arm away, do you? Especially an arm of someone who is famous. That's a collectors item. So what did they do with it? Many can speculate it was cryo-genetically frozen, so maybe sometime in the future, they could reattach it. Or maybe it's being used to build some sort of freak super-villain made up of super-heroes ex-body parts. How frightening is that? Franken-Villain? Maybe DC's Frankenstein needed a new right arm. If this was the Marvel universe, I'm sure Terror would have been more than happy to get a hold of that, but in the DC Universe, there's no character like Terror that I can think of.

In all honesty, I have a good idea where that arm will end up at: The Batcave. Although Bruce is out of commission at the moment, that won't stop him from finding said arm and putting it under glass in his museum of crime. Bruce Wayne has made a habit of collecting almost anything he can over his years of fighting crime, even a giant penny. Aside from that, he has tons of old costumes, and other odd collectibles. He has everything there, even tons of Kryptonite. (See Superman Batman: the Search for Kryptonite) What's stopping him, other than death, from getting a hold of that sweet sweet arm and putting it in his bizarre collection, unless someone ate it. (I'm looking at you Killer Croc) What do you guys think happened with Roy's arm? Where did it go?

I stole his arm and had it for dinner last night

He could have given it to someone in the hopes that they could put it back on him later...

@ComicStooge: The arm is said to be infected. Prometheus' blade "did more than sever [his] arm--it infected it." Dr. Mid-Nite says they can't just replace it.

@G-Man:  his "stub" will also never heal and it shows that when he puts on his new bionic arm that it causes him intense pain

I think Roy should take his arm and beat Prometheus over the head with it.

I haven't read any of this story, but I get the impression his arm was just severed from his body.  Like a nice clean slice?  Or was it pulled off?  It's important to know what happened to his arm.  Was it mangled to a bloody pulp?  Was it stolen by a super villain? 
Otherwise, why do they have the technology to give him a cybernetic arm, but they can't just reattach it?

I see this was answered while I was typing.  Thanks!

One word-Krypto.  A superhero dog needs superhero bones, Snausages just won't cut it.

I think they used that for a Star Wars plot already, with Luke's hand.
 
Boring as it may seem, it was probably disposed of within normal medical practices.

Well if they cut the arm a little higher it could work unless Roy whole body get infected by promotheus poison, I guess that could make a story but I am not familiar with promotheus poisons.

It's just waiting for the moment that some evil-doer clones a brand new... but altogether sinister... version of Roy Harper. Coming soon to a comic shop near you, the menace of..... Dark Arrow!

I thought it was kinda ironic that Roy was the one to lose his arm. When Ollie died, he was forced to choose between death or life with one arm. He chose death. And now Roy has life with one arm.

The arm is doing heroin somewhere.

It's probably just hanging out with Luke Skywalker's hand.
This guy knows.

 If I had to guess it's either being used by PROJECT CADMUS or by one of Prometheus's men to make a 'better' ROY HARPER, or in a dumpster somewhere...

@Jordanstine:  yeah with all the rest of the arms and hands in the lost and found bin lol

Wally raced it over and threw it in Chunk for safe keeping?

You know, it just occurred to me that Oliver Queen was missing an arm in DKR.  Perhaps taking the arm of an archer, an athlete who clearly has need for both hands, is meant as a form of insult.

Dude if you lived in the DC world and someone say they just brought Batman's left arm. I would keep that thing in glass and tell my kid to keep it and who knows maybe my grandson would be bully and use the arm as strange weapon.

Strangely enough I am watching Dr. Who right now which also deals with a missing hand.  

#33 Edited by supermanofste-el (29 posts) - - Show Bio

Doctor Mid-Nite severed the hand from the arm, and kept the arm to test for what Prometheus infected it with. 
But Roy's hand is at a celebrity charity with Ash's hand (Evil Dead 2), Thing (Adam's Family), and Luke Skywalker's collecting handouts.

They can revive ppl, bruce can travel through time, but theres no freaking way he can get his arm back on? As to where it is...who knows.
#35 Posted by ComicMan24 (147115 posts) - - Show Bio

Maybe someone stole it to sell it on e-bay.
#36 Posted by Proverb (32 posts) - - Show Bio

Jack Harkness has it in a jar for safekeeping.

Its vanished for now, only to emerge as a convenient plot point sometime in the future.

Maybe some dude gathered it up with Bucky's left arm, Karma's left leg, and Sunfire's original right leg to make the most badass Frankenstein creature ever.
