Nobody likes being replaced, especially for a job you claim not to have wanted in the first placed. Well, that’s how Speedy’s feeling. After declining membership on The Team, and going solo from Green Arrow – Speedy has found new heroine Artemis is subbing for him as GA’s new sidekick and with Young Justice… and Artemis may be more than she seems…
We open on Star City, and Speedy appears to be going it alone against metahuman street thug Brick and his gang. Brick has some good monologuing about Green Arrow sending his kid to do his job. Speedy’s not alone however, the three original Young Justice members are there as well. It’s a social visit, but Speedy neither wants their company nor help. When they ask him to join, he declines. He doesn’t need them, Arrow, or the League. Wow.
