The Arsenal suit (later known as the Speedy suit) is a protective suit designed and created by Lodai to be utilized by Roy Harper as Arsenal. It was later used by Thea Queen as Speedy; until she retired from vigilantism.


Original suit

The suit originally just consisted of Roy's favorite red hoodie and a mask, a quiver, a bow and arrows. But sometime after Slade Wilson was defeated and imprisoned on Lian Yu by Oliver Queen, John Diggle visited Lodai and requested he make another vigilante suit, similar to Oliver's, with a number of differences for Roy Harper. It is unknown what materials it is made from; with the exception of kevlar, it also seems to resemble the suits worn by his mentors, Oliver as the Arrow, and Sara Lance as the Canary.

After the suit was confiscated by the Starling City Police Department, Malcolm Merlyn managed to retrieve it. It was then given to Thea Queen to give to Roy, though Roy decided to give the suit to Thea before leaving once again.[1]

Thea modified and donned the suit to stop the League of Assassins from releasing a lethal toxin. Afterwards, Oliver christened her as Starling City's newest protector and named her Speedy.[2]


After Thea got kidnapped by the Dominators, the status of the suit remained unknown. However, after she escaped, she got a new, similar suit in the fabrication room of the Waverider.
