    Great. That dead body in Olliver Queen’s arms better not be Roy Harper. I mean, really.

    Yes, great cover to “Booster!” As a fan of the old All Star Squadron, JSA #12 also sounds great — Amazing Man and Jakeen Thunder….

    I really think the dead body will be Connor Hawke. Note that this month is also offering a trade of the miniseries featuring Connor. I don’t like this decision but poor Connor has been vulnerable to being killed off for awhile now.
    Perhaps in spite of the body looking quite male it will somehow turn out to be Mia. That would be a better choice if they have to kill one of Ollie’s kids.

    Sadly Connor Hawke apparently needs to die rather then just remain unused.

    Well I just went back, and noticed that Nightwing is standing in the background.

    Maybe just to plant the seeds for conjecture that it could be Red Arrow?

    Also based on the overall olive coloring of the image the domino masked character over Supermans shoulder appears to have yellow hair. This from comparing definite yellow components of the picture (ie. Wally’s costume, Black Lightnings).
