    DC tends to wait a bit longer to bring back characters who really died.
    Well it felt like DC tried to make death stick but they slowly but surely threw it out the window. He'll be back in at-least a year.

    It's not that I think DC won't ever bring back Roy (eventually).
    I just disagree with how quickly Arsenal expects it to happen:

    I mean, let's be honest: unless we have a line-wide reboot by then, Roy wasn't exactly one of DC's most in-demand characters.

    I hope Roy and some of the other Titans who were killed off so stupidly come back. With the way things are going at DC, they'll have to bring back some of the dead and derailed Titans anyways to fill out a roster someday. Unless they want to push the lesser known ones, but DC won't do that.

    Who even is in DC's most in-demand anymore? It seems to differ from person to person.

    That may be true, but I doubt Roy would make enough people's "Top 5" lists to consider him enough "in demand" among the overall readership.

    When Oliver eventually gets his ongoing back, a “return of Roy Harper” arc probably won’t be too far behind.

    No, but between Doomsday Clock, the Justice-Doom War, Metal 2, Event Leviathan and any other event book between now and June 2020 there will be plenty of opportunities for fan favorite characters who were killed, erased or replaced to be reintroduced into the DCU. That doesn't mean he will return in those books but the aftermath of them (be it a soft reboot, new books, new status quos, etc.) could end up leading to Roy returning from the dead sooner than expected.

    Hell it's entirely possible that Heroes in Crisis ends with Roy brought back to life, revealed he never died in the first place or sets up a new book (Wally?) that eventually brings him back.

    Yep. No superhero death lasts forever.

    Every founding member of the JLA has died and been resurrected (if you count Batman's 'deaths').

    I know, it's pretty ridiculous.

    It is but it also helps me not to get too out of whack when a character I love 'dies'. It's not like it was when Barry Allen died and we had to wait 20+ years believing he'd never be back.

    Leviathan seems like a great place to have Roy return.
    Gets his ties back to Checkmate back front & centre too.

    I personally liked it like that. Death had some meaning, Barry stayed dead, Jason stayed dead. It felt like there were stakes to the universe and consequences for stories.

    The only reason this death will stick is if the comics publishing branch is failing and they run out of time before someone pitches another banal revival arc. Not that I disagree with bringing Roy back, just that the resurrection is boring and predictable and he shouldn't have died so pointlessly and dismissively in the first place.
