> I think for me, Roy can be a part of the league, but I wish it was as Arsenal, not as Red Arrow. All the time in Titans, I pretty much tended to forget he was at one time GA's sidekick, because he developed into his own man. He didn't rely on just the trick arrows, but other things also. I guess the League has issues with gun weapons now, tho.

I like Roy in the current lineup for three reasons:

1: Roy is a specialist who has the "bullseye" power of turning anything he touches into a weapon. This is more than just what Green Arrow has, and it should be used more often than just "red arrow."

2. Roy's relationship with Black Canary and Hal Jordan are interesting because both of them see him as a younger brother character. I always wanted to see more of that kind of dynamic in this JL run before the group splintered again. It is both familiar (because we're used to the Ollie/Dinah/GL group) and different (because Roy is younger and has a different perspective on things than Ollie).

3. Roy is the only JL member with a spy background and spy contacts. This may not seem alot, but I think Roy having contacts within different intelligence agencies should be explored more because this should be an asset to the team, not a detriment. Remember, Diana can't actively ask for Checkmate or CBI's help, but Roy could call in a favor because they all know him as being an agent.

- l.k.

Okay, I didn't KNOW he had the Bullseye power of super-aim. When did THAT happen?

I think Roy, being "in" with as many of DC's spy agencies as he is, might be a good superhero liason with say, Checkmate and the JLA and Titans, as well as with the JSA. \:\)
