Speedy. Roy Harper was marooned on Lost Mesa after a plane crash which left him with only Quoag, the family "Indian servant." He trained himself to be an expert with a bow and arrow. Some years later he is found by Oliver Queen, who rescues him and adopts him after Quoag is killed by criminals looking for Oliver. Roy becomes Speedy, the sidekick to Oliver's crime-fighting alter ego Green Arrow. Speedy has no superpowers but is an ace archer and has a variety of trick arrows. His enemies include the fishing-themed gadgeteer the Angler; the incendiary Blaze; the evil-clown Bull’s-Eye; the crime teacher Professor Million; the rope-themed gadgeteer the Roper; and the Rogue Archers. He appears in stories with titles like “Crime College,” “Doom Over Gayland,” and “The Script Calls for Murder.”
