Slade Wilson certainly is enjoying his time in the spotlight. Not only is he our latest Character of the Month, but it was recently announced that he's going to get an all-new ongoing series, too! To celebrate our current Character of the Month, our latest Question of the Week asked you one simple yet fun question: what's your favorite Deathstroke costume?
10 options were placed on the poll and one of the attires took a nice lead over the competition. Apologies to fans of the classic duds, but Deathstroke's armor in Batman: Arkham Origins has earned the top spot!
Opinions may be mixed on the third installment of the Arkham franchise, but it's clear many of us can agree that Deathstroke's design for the game is really, really cool. The armor gives him a more formidable and dangerous appearance but doesn't make him look too bulky or hinder his movement. It's just enough to make him look durable and oh-so-frightening. He's also armed to to the teeth, but again, it's not overbearing. It's practical and something that would totally translate well if he ever appears on the big screen. It's a great look for the mercenary and it's easy to see why so many people love it.
352 Viners voted in the latest poll (want to vote next time? SIGN UP!). Here's the complete results.
- Batman: Arkham Origins (video game) 36%
- The New 52 17%
- Classic pre-52 costume (blue/orange) 14%

- Son of Batman (animated movie) 1%
Let's see what a few Viners had to say about Slade's costumes.
"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."
"Son of Batman. It has a strong resemblance to his classic look, but with a more "military" style."
"While the Teen Titians costume my not be the most badass, it is my far the most menacing. Simple and sleek, the Teen Titians Deathstroke was the first exposure I had to the character, and it immediately left its mark on me. The way the shadows played off his black and orange, skull-like mask, made a young child like myself cower away in a corner. However, not only is it menacing, but it is completely effective. While it lacks the sheer badass-ery of say Arkham Origins or his New 52 design, it makes up for in efficiency. It doesn't have all the heavy and oversized armor that some of the others have. It has just enough protective platting and pouches for space to make this Deathtroke, not only an effective killing weapon, but a man of a wicked sense of fashion. I mean, come on, it looks so cool!! :D But ya' know, nostalgia."
We ask one more thing of you, Viners. Now that you've voted for the costumes, share an image of your favorite one with us! Go ahead and show the world why that attire is full of awesome. Also, 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.
