Agreed. Roy's was a little lame and trite to me, but the other two were great character moments. I feel like of the three Roy is the one losing out development-wise so far - he's just some wise-cracking sexist idiot.

Yeah, I think that makes a difference. Maybe it's a head-canon thing for me, but Croc is not a character I think of as being compassionate or able to make a point like this and have it stick so much that it becomes a cherished memory.

Yeah, I'm not terribly familiar with Green Arrow and what villains Roy would have faced most of the time, but there are some who are certainly believable in a role like that... Poison Ivy, for example, or Two Face. There are plenty of ambiguous DC villains that could do it, but maybe that's meant to be the biggest meaning behind the memory: that the compassion and humanity comes from one of the least human characters possible.

There's more to him than that. He seems obsessed with pleasing and impressing Jason in the second issue, and his introduction is all about how he's trying to forget his days as a "hero". I think those insecurities have potential to be interesting...

but maybe I just like wise-cracking idiots! :
