Ulysses just appeared and we will get Odysseus? Thank God that man hasn't any other names because DC is destined to take all of them this year.

That costume design is soooooo much better than in the first New 52 volume of Deathstroke.

let's hope it's better than his previous series

Posted by TommytheHitman

Wow that sounds pretty awesome. I like how his costume has changed. He seems to be going for more light weight now.

Edited by G-Man

@tommythehitman: He should wear different outfits depending on the mission. That way, people that like the new or old will be happy.

@g_man: And it would make more sense. Different missions call for different gear. I like that idea a lot.

yes costume looks great hopefully the story is good too

Posted by Boynerdgeek

As long this is better than Liefeld than I will try to read this comics every month. I don't expect Eisner Award quality of story. Just summer popcorn block buster flick

@g_man

It would be cool if he had some kind of... shape shift... stealth suit armor? And at one point he's just cycling through costumes and for one panel we see his classic costume. Would be kinda cool and come up with some interesting Mercenary costumes for him.

Edited by TommytheHitman

Also is it just me or does Deathstroke look a bit like a pirate on that cover?

Erased from his memory? So, he's about to go Jason Bourne on someone's ass?

That costume design is soooooo much better than in the first New 52 volume of Deathstroke.

Agreed. That costume is kick-ass!

Look its the Cult of Starro ;o

Since when does that guy need a cult worshiping him? His main power is mind-control, for cryin' out loud!

He always did that. Standard part of his outfit prior to the New 52 was an ammo belt across his chest, buccaneer boots and the cloth mask with the tie-strings hanging out behind his head.

I would actually like to see that.

@nightfang: Me too actually some kind of group philosophy about Starro fulfilling your every desire if you give up control

I was thinking more of something like an Atlantean cult worshipping Starro and planning his resurrection.

Love the art!

Posted by _ANDY_CAN

I hope his allies are pre 52 characters like Bronze tiger, vigilante, shrike, David Cain, Sportsmaster(the young justice version), Catman, Richard Dragon, constantine Drakon, grant wilson, Archer braun, KGbeast, Prometheus or tiger.

Dammit this book is going to look gorgeous. Not a fan Daniel's writing though.

Posted by GraniteSoldier

This looks good.

Posted by Dman535

kinda reminds me of the costume from the flashpoint paradox movie.

Posted by adamTRMM

Wanna give this a shot, how's Daniel as a writer?

Posted by mak13131313

I'm so excited for this!

Posted by MonsterStomp

That's what I'm talking 'bout.

Posted by iaconpoint

@adamtrmm: he has very good ideas and concepts but sometimes the execution is not all there. But to me, his art makes up for any shortcomings in his writing.

Posted by adamTRMM

@iaconpoint:

He is an exceptional artist, I agree. What did he write though?

Posted by iaconpoint

@adamtrmm: pre-new 52 Batman and new 52 Detective for its first year. Lotsa noirish crime-style stuff.

Hope to god this doesn't disappoint

Cyclops working for Odysseus have sense.

Posted by Jayc1324

Wow that new costume is soooo much better I love the white eyes more than the red. I'm so excited for this series, Slade is so badass

Posted by kilowog52

They look like that character from Original Sin.

Posted by CorruptedOwl
