WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Infinite Frontier: Secret Files #2 by Brandon Thomas, Joshua Williamson, Valentine de Landro, Marissa Louise, Triona Farrell and Tom Napolitano, on sale now.

One of the biggest shocks in the newly rebuilt Omniverse, following the events of Death Metal, has been the resurrection of Roy Harper. Formerly known as Speedy, Red Arrow and Arsenal, Roy was killed in Heroes in Crisis at Sanctuary when Wally West glitched, but he’s back and traversing the American landscape to find meaning again.

While Roy seems to be ready to leave the guilt behind, someone who won’t be a part of this new life is his daughter, Lian.

Roy went through a turbulent time in his career when he went solo and fathered Lian with the assassin Chesire. Roy loved his little girl, but DC broke fans’ hearts when 2009’s Justice League: A Cry for Justice saw Prometheus use the Electrocutioner to wire up Star City and cause a massive earthquake. The seismic disaster killed many, including Lian, which led to a downward spiral for Roy.

While Green Arrow would kill Prometheus, Roy ended up murdering Electrocutioner as he went through the darkest phase of his life. He lost his arm and truly broke mentally, joining Deathstroke’s Titans — though a lot of this was reset in the New 52. Lian was written out, with his addiction retroactively switched from heroin to alcohol. DC Rebirth would further tinker with Roy, but once more, Lian wasn’t mentioned, leaving fans hopeful she could be revived later on.

But as the recordings of DEO agent Cameron Chase reveal, the Department of Extranormal Operations has been monitoring Roy to hopefully use him as a hero again. He hasn’t revealed himself, not even to Oliver, leaving everyone thinking he’s still dead. But as we hear more of Chase’s report, it’s confirmed the Electrocutioner killed Lian here. It doesn’t mention Prometheus, though, so i’t’s not entirely clear how much of that story is back in continuity.

Hopefully, Chase, her boss Mister Bones and the Department of Extranormal Operations will reveal more about his pre-Flashpoint history and what’s been restored to continuity. Roy’s clearly harboring traumatic memories, so it would be great to see the past with Lian.

It also leaves room for another take on the ill-fated Chesire romance, as the DEO will surely be doing a deeper dive to ascertain if Roy can be an asset or hindrance. After helping out a bartender that resembles Cheshire and Lian in New Mexico, one can only hope Roy finds a path to the light as he speeds off on a bike. He seems to have a purpose now, so only time will tell how Lian’s memory impacts him as memories comes rushing back.
