That red arrow suit clashes with your hair Roy....

Oh Hal, its ok, just hug your regrets away. Regrets that involve abandoning a young drug addict that you've known for... well forever. No biggie. All's forgotten (somewhere in the background I hear Borat screaming NOT)
and as a side note, while I understand that yes Roy was an addict, and yes it was a big part of his past, does anyone else notice that this isn't the first time they've brought up the druggie past when he makes any sort of transition, whether its a new costume, or name, or just general change to his life.
though to be fair, they did only bring that up in a brief way

They also mention it in the new Titans issue when he decides to move into a bigger place for Lian's sake, and he's going through all his stuff and finds a picture of his band and then all of a sudden, we're waltzing down memory lane once more.

But I really like the first 2 scans and the art as well.

Did Roy's jaw just unhinge in the third scan? Shit, that's a JOKER-level gaping mouth!

Dinah too pretty, can't talk....

Glad to see Arsenal remembers who REALLY loved him back then. Go Canary.

To be fair, Hal actually helped him after Ollie threw him out. He took him Dinah's for recovery and was with him for a while.

Yeah but looking at it closely, Hal and Roy has the exact same facial structure and body shape, and huge bulging muscles to be exact. I wouldn't be surprised if those were tears of laughter coming out of Dinah's eyes and she is using her mad kung-fu skillz to stifle a laughter at Roy's ridiculous muscles.

They're ridiculous, but he's an archer, I'd expect him to be well muscled, it's someone who can turn his willpower into physical reality with a thought, being built like an outhouse who somewhat surprises me.

Oh, God.

I can't look at Hal and Dinah tearing up at Roy in the Red Arrow costume without imagining them thinking "Oh, dear. That costume's so ugly. It's truly terrible. My God, I'm crying at how bad it is. Just, real tears, jeez."

Yeah, this.

Hal's "abandonment" of Roy was actually discussed at length before, with ashtoreth making the best analysis of the character and his role in Roy's recovery:

Hal didn't do much, but, after the person Roy loved most BEAT HIM UP AND THREW HIM OUT AFTER ABANDONING HIM IN THE FIRST PLACE, Hal is the one who goes looking for him. Hal is the one who finds him and doesn't screw up by picking a fight because he doesn't like what Roy did. He is kind and unselfrighteous and he insists on getting Roy to someone who does care about him and will help him. It also matters that Hal is Ollie's best friend (aside from Dinah and Roy). Him doing that was notice that Ollie was wrong when he said it was all Roy's fault.

My favorite follow-up to this is when Dinah's mother is dying. Ollie is there and tells Hal. Hal immediately goes to the Titans and asks them for Roy. When Roy shows up, he just says, "Dinah needs you." And thats it. Roy goes with him on the spot. Hal drops him off and the family huggles.

Hal isn't the guy to take care of you, but he is the best friend who'll back you up.

How do I look?

Like steroids pumped your arms up to the size of your head and shrunk your balls.

I should make a list of the comics artists who can draw attractive men. All three of them.

Arsenal is a stupid name anyway. It has 'Arse' in it.

I think his Red Arrow costume needs a hood or something.

[personal profile] theanswer 2009-11-23 12:52 pm (UTC)(link)
But it's Ollie's costume only red. O_o

Exactly. I think it's fairly attractive. And a guy who does what Roy does WOULD be built.

I say a hat. Go Old School!

Yeah, pulling bow strings isn't easy. lol I tried ._.

Even the ones with all the high-tech pullies and light-weight materials that are suppose to make it easy still require some force. o_o

[personal profile] theanswer 2009-11-23 01:13 pm (UTC)(link)
Red Arrow in Kingdom Come had a hat and a beard. He looked too much like Ollie though.

I say since Ollie currently isn't using the hood look, Roy should use it.

Although at least you posted some of the Arsenal mini, that stopped my head from exploding :)

'Roid Roy, but still ROY! And a very lovely Dinah.

Poor Roy, I think he's so far back on the DC burner that by the time he has a major storyline again Lian will be a second grader. Which, given her aging process, is at least 5 years from now.

Either that or they'll just kill him.

Yeah, that was the kicker at the end of that old Hawkeye miniseries - the bad guy got the bow away from Clint, "say goodbye sucker - bzuh?!?" and Clint is all, what, you can't pull a 400-lb. pressure line? *bops bad guy*

I love the Dinah-Roy relationship so much it hurts. It's probably my favorite relationship in comics.

As for Hal, it's moments like this that make me almost forgive him for being such an ass most of the time.

I agree and this is one of the things that made me like Hal in the first place, I didn't find him really endearing during John's run with the character but after reading the older stories involving the character, I actually started to like and knew why Johns wanted to bring back the character.

It's an older idea than that: see the end of the Odyssey, where Odysseus is the only one who can use his bow.
