Well, this is hardly considered 'recent' but maybe this theme would become a comeback again? (And besides, I know of no other suitable discussion to discuss this...)
In the Special Volume 26 released on December 24, 2005 in Japan (File 11 - 12)
Haibara recalls her memory at the time she was working for Black Organization. From there, Haibara and Conan conclude the only possible person having knowledge about that is Black Organization member Generic, who has knowledge about APTX 4869 and works together with Sherry in a few times.
Honda is revealed to be Generic. It turns out he escapes the Black Organization using the same method as Sherry. Along the way, Generic develops a mind control drug and a memory erasure drug. Using the mind control drug, he alters the thinking of a couple whose their son died and takes over the role as their surrogate son. He researches on the effect of APTX 4869, in which he finds Haibara as Sherry in the shrunken form, and kidnaps Haibara on the way.
Honda confesses to Haibara, hoping they could be together and escape the Black Organization. When Haibara objects, saying she will fight the Black Organization, Honda threatens her and Conan with the memory erasure drug. However, Genta shoots a slingshot to Honda, causing the drug backfire on Honda.
In the end, Conan and Haibara forgive Honda, hoping he could find peace with his new childhood life."
Gosho introducing in the special edition about mind control drug and a memory erasure drug. Isn't that baffling enough? Fuu fuu... what if one is given both a memory erasure drug and a mind control drug and become another person with another memory and identity? Basically then BO can 'revive the dead' by brainwashing another person into thinking what BO want him\her to be. Karasuma can then live on forever simply through kidnapping another person's body and 'revive' Karasuma again and again.
