Roy Harper was an orphan who became the ward of Oliver Queen, the Green Arrow. As Speedy, he was the Green Arrow's partner and a member of both the All-Star Squadron and the Seven Soldiers of Victory, alongside whom he fought until he and the rest of the team were hurled into the timestream by the Nebula Man. Rescued decades later by the Justice Society of America and their counterparts the Justice League of America of Earth-One, Roy had not aged a day since his disappearance in the mid 1940s and neither had his teammates. He nonetheless retired from "superheroing" for the most part and attempted to find a place for himself in this new world he found himself in. He later attended the funeral of the Crimson Avenger.Though Harper was originally thought to have somehow survived the destruction of Earth-Two in the Crisis on Infinite Earths, this later appeared not to be the case, though another Roy Harper does exist on New Earth.
- This version of Roy Harper (Earth-Two), including all history and corresponding appearances, was initially erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985-86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. However the ending of Convergence retroactively prevented that collapse saving all the alternate realities though in an "evolved" form. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
- In some later stories, Speedy is colored as a blond, presumably in order to differentiate him from his Earth-One counterpart. This appears to happen only in his appearances in All-Star Squadron from #31 onward and in Infinity Inc #11, and according to Roy Thomas is because he was blond in some of his very earliest appearances.
