Exclusive Preview: DEATHSTROKE #19

The end is near for Deathstroke but he's determined to settle an old score first.

DEATHSTROKE may be coming to an end but that doesn't mean we'll see the last of him. There are apparently plans for him beyond this series. Last issue we saw Deathstroke find out his old boss from Team 7 had set him up. This puts Deathstroke on the trail of John Lynch, a man he was certain was dead. Of course Deathstroke will be running into some others, according to the solicit.

Check out this exclusive preview for next week's issue, courtesy of DC Comics.

Ok so majestic is back...I'm guessing he is no longer an alien

Why is Terra with Deathstroke? I can understand Rose but Terra makes no sense. You need to keep them as far apart as possible. I will try to not look into it too much but I am not pleased.

Edited by colonyofcells

Maybe Terra is hooking up with Deathstroke ?

@MadeinBangladesh Sales have been dropping even after Liefeld.

Edited by colonyofcells

Maybe they should revive Team 7 so Team 7 can fight the Justice League.

At least Jericho looks like Jericho again and not...whatever malformed blog Liefeld had put as his stand in. : /

Okay okay okay okay okay… what?!

I mean, okay… Rose ending up going with Deathstroke was a theory I had myself, though I’m not sure how I feel about it, since, well, he’s not exactly a good guy, and I was kind of hoping Rose would steer away from the villainous path, and maybe make up with Caitlin. I’m not exactly sure what this means for her character development in the future, since this probably means she’s likely to continue with the whole remorseless killing shtick they’ve got her hopped up on in the reboot, considering she’s with her dad now.

That being said, it does appear as though they’re going to be working together with what remains of Team 7 for something of a good cause… trying to stop this Majestic god, so maybe we’ll see Rose start to, I don’t know, not be such a cold blooded bitch anymore? And maybe some kind of meaningful father/daughter bonding?

Not sure how the cover is supposed to play out in this issue… could just be misleading and have nothing to do with the story, since not only would it not fit considering that Majestic is the enemy they’re trying to stop, not Deathstroke, but the story was likely changed to meet demands once the book got cancelled.

I’m rather curious now to see exactly how The final two issues of The Ravagers plays out in this case, though, since it looks as though Deathstroke accepting Harvest’s contract was a Team 7 plan and that he ended up double crossing Harvest in some way.

Oh, and yeah… WTF is Terra doing there?! I mean… yeah I get the whole pre-boot Judas Contract thing, so in a weird sort of way it makes sense, but what reason could she possibly have for leaving behind Beast Boy and teaming up with Rose, of all people? Last time they met, Terra wanted to eviscerate her something awful.

Note to self: Read The Ravagers #11 BEFORE Deathstroke #19 to know WTF is going on.

I havent read a single issue of Deathstroke, but this does look really good! Might pick it up.

Posted by Miss_Garrick

I would hope that Jericho will be cool and sweet like he used to be, but that's probably not going to happen is it? I miss the artistic, gentle him.

Posted by arnoldoaad

This looks so unbelievably rush that it literally hurts, i mean OMG I read all of deathstroke, all of Team 7 and all of Ravagers and I am completely lost. I have no idea what is going on here

This is what happen when a series is cancelled but we need to reach point X before the train crashes. A shame since Justin Jordan is not a bad writer.

@brownghost: Probably because Liefeld put a bad taste in everyone's mouth.

If given the chance I believe the series would have risen in sales. Sadly DC rarely thinks long term...

All of them, he's practically the focus of the team.

Read pre liefield and post liefield...you wont be dissapointed other than issue #1 seemed like it was trying too hard to set up how much of a BAMF Deathstroke is. you wont be dissapointed in the series without those awkward middle liefield issues

i feel like DC is too quick with knee jerk reactions too.

It does seem that most of the team 7 gained powers so hopefully Amanda Waller and Steve Trevor will also gain powers soon. The Team 7 project did seem to succeed in making Amanda Waller lose weight. Kurt Lance and Grifter seem to have gained super powers bec of Team 7 project same as what happened to Majestic, Deathstroke and Black Canary. In the old Wildstorm, John Lynch also had powers.

Posted by jimmy11

WTF is wrong with DC? Deathstroke gets canceled and Majestic is "created" by government agency!

Edited by xtremekidx

Man,deathstroke has been so good these last few issues....surprisingly an easy going book with action and slashing but nothing that makes you think alot or focus too much...

Edited by SupremeHyperion

Cool Majestic is in it... does this mean superman is now going to get a whole new bunch of silly powers because Majestic has the powers of a god :) and Clark is still just an alien :(

Book looks good, And I agree , DC doesn't give books a chance. This is a character that if done right (deathstroke) would be one of their most famous. but that's what happens when they are more interested in pushing a bunch of batman related/superman books. variety and choice dies.

Are they actually going to stick to the cover?

I'm pretty sure he meant sticking to what's actually happening in the cover, in which case I would doubt it. It wouldn't fit at all given the story in the book, as what kind of sense would it make to bring in Deathstroke's entire family to fight him when they're trying to stop Majestic? Add to that the fact that Rose appears to be on his side there, and I'm willing to bet the cover will not be happening. The cover and solicit were conceived a month before it was announced that Deathstroke was being cancelled, so whatever story was originally supposed to be told here most likely got changed in order to bring the book to a conclusion.

looking forward to seeing more of Mr.Majestic. :)

Posted by Catsnlynne

I can't believe someone captured Deathstroke.

Posted by Supreme_Maj

DC majestic is back and as a earthling what the @#!&*($~ are you doing for you everything is about Superman Batman or Wonder Woman the others you don't care proof you are sending Deathstroke away why? Why? Why? Why? We all know what make majestic different is his Kherubim Heritage .So it means Savant is no more his daughter, nemesis no more the love of his life, He's no more a Warlord with thousands years of experiences just for you to make him an easy target for Superman come on. i just hope you have a hidden agenda for him and in the end we will finally find out that he has been a kheran all along.

Deathstroke killistrations would not fly. And besides Slade doesn't have some lame game and cameo from an origin movie

So Majestic is in New 52 now? When did he first turn up?

Posted by Answerman

So you people really think giving a series 19 issues to find its audience is a short sighted move by DC?
How do you expect a series to go on before the plug gets pulled?
I agree the series recovered well from the Liefeld debacle, but bad sales and a lack of an audience have been this books problem right out the gates.
I for one have enjoyed everything but the Liefeld run of Deathstroke, and am greatful for DC publishing this book as long as they have,,,

Posted by Answerman

@strider92: Team 7 was the 1st mentioning of Majestic, as well as Ladytron, and Spartan.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Huh...guess this destroys the idea that many had in suggesting that the New 52 Superman was an amalgam of Pre-Flashpoint Batman and Mr. Majestic, huh? Still, this looks nice, even if its a title we aren't gonna see for much longer.

I would also like to know this. I'm so happy to see Majestros! but is this his first new 52 appearance?

Posted by ClawFist

This preview is kind of upsetting, it spoils a death us in the pages of the Ravagers. I'm guessing we're losing Niles Caulder in Ravagers #11.

Actually I meant if they will change the cover. I remember they had different covers for #17 and #18 on the website and at the comic store they were completely different.

Cool to see Maj return... but as a damn cyborg-god nyeehhhhhh =(... i swear if he's just a brute then DC can go f themselves, the aspect of him that i truly liked even if he is superman, was his super intelligence. He could take on batman and supes with prep. Now he just looks pissed
