While checking out Newsarama for the January solicitations, I noticed that in Green Arrow/ Black Canary #4 there is apparently a new death on the DCU hit list. Noting this, I figured why wait to see who it is when I can guess now!! Murder mysteries are alwasy compelling that way, even if the end result is a bit of a downer.
Firstly, is it a guy or a girl?
In looking at the outline of the picture, the arms are a bit beefy, so my first thought is that it must be a man. Then I look at the outline of the head and think that it must be a woman. This confuses me already so I will have to put on my thinking cap.
Could it be Black Canary? My odds say no. In an interview with Judd Winick, it appears that she has dodged the bullet for now. My guess would be that if it is a woman, it could be Mia (Speedy). The only hole in that theory is that I always thought that Mia would LIVE with HIV, so she would be around for awhile. This takes her out of the forefront for me, because plotwise it doesn't fit.
Maybe it is an Amazon? They wouldn't have killed Hyppolyta so quickly after bringing her back, and I can't imagine that if it was an Amazon that Wonder Woman would stay in the background while Ollie mourned. It must be someone closer to Ollie then to Diana.
If it is a guy, who would it be? I see Connor in the background of the picture, so he is off the hook as far as I can tell. I don't think it would be Roy Harper either as he has just been established as a Justice League member and there are rumblings of a rebooted Titans that feature him on the team.
If it isn't someone in the "Arrow" family, who could it be?
This leads me back to Black Canary, even though I think it would be too obvious.
All this thinking has just confused me again. I am asking for your help on this. Who do you think it laying there? I am missing someone obvious to be sure. Help my poor, tired brain solve this murder mystery.
Anyone care to take a guess?
