Why did Speedy become Red Arrow instead of Arsenal? It makes sense if he broke off from Green Arrow and in not the best of terms he wouldn't be calling himself just like his mentor but rather make a name for himself. Or was it something DC mandated because he hasn't used the name Arsenal since One Year Later?

Greg responds...

There were no mandates. Brandon and I made the choice. Where would the IDEA of "Arsenal" come from at this point? He's not using an arsenal, is he? He's using a bow and arrows.

Red Arrow just felt more natural a transition for him.
