Not A Sidekick: Look...
There’s nothing wrong with you. And if there does happen to be any other…programming or - whatever, we can fix it. We’ll deal with it as it comes.
Where do we even start? There’s nothing at Cadmus, so we don’t know where else to look yet.
I don’t even know what memories are Roy’s and which ones are mine..
We’ll find something eventually - okay?
Roy. Look. So….so maybe you’re not the “real” Roy; maybe you were programmed by Cadmus and made to betray the League.
But none of that changes the fact that you were a hero for three years. Programming or not, you were a hero and my partner for three years. And above all that, you wer-….you are - my son.
I won’t.. I won’t dispute the fact that I was
a herosaving people. But whatever I did as a “hero” will always be tarnished by the fact I was.. am the mole. Roy’s reputation as a hero is ruined because of me.
I know you, Ollie. You’ll do what you think is right, but.. I’m not the Roy you thought I was. I’m not the person I thought I was.
One detail like that doesn’t have to outweigh years of good service. Your reputation as a hero isn’t ruined, and neither is the reputation of Speedy.
I know…and…yeah, it’s not ideal, but….that doesn’t have to change who you are and all the good you’ve done. You’re free from Savage’s control now, and you can work on trying to fix what happened. You’re free to be yourself - or - who you want to be.
It’s not a minor detail, Ollie. Just because I’m.. just because I’m a clone doesn’t excuse the things I said. I accused teammates, friends,of betrayal. Even if my reputation as a hero isn’t tarnished, my reputation as a friend is.
Roy is lucky to have someone like you, someone who believes in him, even when he doesn’t believe in himself.
Doesn’t it bother you that he’s out there somewhere, or that he may have been killed?
Everyone makes that mistake sometimes. I mean, you should see how many arguments I’ll get in with Aquaman; or the number of times GL will disagree with what Batman says. I’m sure everyone on the team understands that it wasn’t fault.
You have that too. You have plently of people that still believe in you.
Of course it bothers me. And I’d love to know where he is or what happened to him so I can try to help him. But I don’t know, and I can’t help him without that. You, on the other hand, I can.
