In case you missed the news, Deathstroke is our latest Character of the Month! Obviously, this means Slade Wilson's going to pop up in various features throughout July. His first appearance in this weekly segment is a simple one: what's your favorite Deathstroke costume?

Since making his debut in 1980, the Terminator has gained quite a lot of popularity. He has plenty of appearances in comics, but he's also shown up in video games, TV shows, and animated movies. The DC mercenary is always strolling around in awesome attire, but we want to know which one you all love the most. There's 10 options on the poll and voting will remain open until Thursday morning (ET). An updated article with the results and more will go live later that day. Now, let's take a look at the costumes!

From top left to bottom right: Arrow, classic pre-52 (blue/orange), pre-52 blue/black, Batman: Arkham Origins, Flashpoint, Injustice: Gods Among Us, Son of Batman, Teen Titans, The New 52, Young Justice

Man, Deathstroke is one cool looking character, isn't he? Now that you've seen all of the choices, it's time to think it through and pick a favorite. Click the link below once you've made up your mind. If you want to go the extra mile, tell us why the costume earned your vote. Make the post excellent enough and there's a chance we'll highlight it in Thursday's feature.


Vote or else you'll upset Deathstroke. Trust us, he's not someone you want to upset.

Want to continue celebrating Deathstroke? He's currently battling Boba Fett (click here to vote!). Also, two video games he's appeared in -- Injustice: Gods Among Us and Batman: Arkham Origins -- are featured in the latest edition of Favorite Comic Book Video Games (click here to vote!). We'll post his best covers this Friday, too!

We'll attempt to focus another Question of the Week or two on Slade Wilson, so if you have an idea for a good question, feel free to share it below or via Twitter.

I voted New 52, but the consumes from both Arkham Origins and Injustice are really close.

I voted for the Teen Titans animated version. It was my first exposure to the character. I remember thinking how scary he was, due in part to Ron Perlman of course. Did he ever remove his mask? The whole time I didn't know who or what he was. To be honest when I started picking up Teen Titans books a few years later I was a little upset to find out he was human. For that reason the Teen Titans animated version will always be my favorite.

I quite like his costumes in Arkham Origins and Arrow, but the animated Teen Titans version will always hold a special place in my heart.

Injustice costume for me.

Hmm this is hard, none of them at perfect but they all have strong points.

1: Arkham Origins

2: Arrow

3: Son of Batman/Young Justice

Always been a fan of a more tactical strike outfit for Deathstroke, since it suits him I think. Also I really REALLY hate those damn fishscales.

1. Arkham Origins

2. Arrow

I guess I'll go with 52, cause I like the Origins, Arrow (except for the helmet) & Injustice all seem to be following that same design. The Son of Batman outfit bothers me for a similar reason as the Arrow outfit.

Idk what it is about Arkham origins, but i'd say it's my number 1

Edited by SNascimento

1) Arkham Origins
2) Arrow

"Son of Batman". It has a strong resemblance to his classic look, but with a more "military" style

Posted by Mangakid1995

I'm torn between Young Justice and Arrow. But I think I'm gonna just go with the one from the show that didn't get prematurely canceled for arbitrary reasons.
