I'm pretty sure this ad was my first introduction to Arsenal/Speedy/Roy Harper. Back when I started reading comics, with The Death Of Superman, he was pretty much a non-entity, at least in the books I was reading at the time. He might have been all over the place in Titans, I wasn't reading (I'm sure Teen Titans aficionado Ben will be able to fill in the blanks). This ad came from 1994's L.E.G.I.O.N. Annual #5 (one of my beloved Elseworlds compilations). I'm not sure if it's supposed to advertise New Titans #114 or #0. #114 seems to start things changing while #0 puts the new team together. Said team includes Arsenal, Impulse, Mirage, Damage, Terra and Changeling. I vaguely remember these changes going on, but they didn't really affect anything I was reading until a little while later when Donna Troy, Supergirl and Kyle Rayner all joined and even then it was only for an issue or two. Anyone like this stuff?
