Where is Roy Harper's Arm Now?
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 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!
" @G-Man: Oh...well...some could be working on genetically cloning Roy a new arm from the old ones DNA... "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.
" @G-Man: Oh...well...some could be working on genetically cloning Roy a new arm from the old ones DNA... "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.
" you know. they couldve killed him like they did garth and i don't think anyone would've missed him. "Garth is dead? ... wait wich Garth are you talking about?
" @ComicStooge said: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." @G-Man: Oh...well...some could be working on genetically cloning Roy a new arm from the old ones DNA... "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. "
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.
