"...the Emerald Archer continues to seek out his own brand of Justice from those responsible for the tragedies that have befallen him."
Uh, befallen him? Roy's the one without the arm. Roy's the one who lost his daughter. Really, people, let's get real.
I suppose it's in character for Ollie to be so self-centered, but this is more the PR spin from the suits than a character trait, unless when Rise and Fall issues start appearing, Ollie is this much of a prick. Because, really, this is a bit much for even him.
Surely, there could be better ways to word this to emphasize Ollie's role in the upcoming storyline without making the loss sound like his and his alone.
I really want the Rise and Fall story to be good and I really want to like it. I liked the story J.T. Krul wrote focusing on Roy and Lian and think he's a good writer. But the hype has me nervous. Sure, Ollie's the main character and Roy will always be secondary, so the focus should be on Ollie, but there's something missing here, at least in the teasers. I hope there's nothing missing, something emotional and meaningful for Roy and his place in the DCU, in the actual issues.
Sometimes, I wish it had been Roy who'd been killed. At least then I could be done with the Arrow Family. This way, I have to keep reading because Roy's my favorite character. Damn it, DC! You guys had better deliver the goods.
