Speedy was Green Arrow’s sidekick and one of the early examples of a hero’s junior partner, debuting in 1941 just a year after Robin. I guess after Batman adopted a ward, Green Arrow felt he had to keep up.
Speedy was overlooked as an original member of the Teen Titans, the sidekicks’ answer to the Justice League—but by popular demand, he guest-starred occasionally before joining full time. He came out relatively happy looking despite the fact that I drew him listening to Depeche Mode.
