Weaknesses:
HIV positive.

Bio:
Mia Dearden was introduced by writer Kevin Smith in Green Arrow volume 2 #2 in 2001. Mia was a teenaged girl who ran from her home after being abused by her father. Unable to survive on her own, she fell in love with a man named Richard, who offered her shelter and food in exchange for exploiting her in child prostitution. Mia is rescued from one of her clients, a depraved local politician, by Oliver Queen, who had just recently returned from the dead. Mia continued to work with Oliver, who was busy trying to reconstruct his own life, and began to train at archery under his tutelage. Mia continually petitioned Green Arrow to allow her to serve as his sidekick, but Oliver continually demurred, not wanting to put another youngster at risk.

Mia continued to appear in Green Arrow as a supporting character until 2004, when writer Judd Winick revealed that Mia was HIV positive, a legacy of her unsavory past. With this knowledge, Mia redoubled her efforts to convince Green Arrow to let her become the new Speedy, and Green Arrow finally relented. In Green Arrow volume 2 #45 (2004), Mia takes up the Speedy mantle, and in the following issue (2005), she joins the Teen Titans.
