If you havent read wolfmans slade from vol 1 new teen titans and his subsequent ongoing solo series then you dont truly know the character. latter versions although some fairly well done have not quite captured the essence of the character. gonna marathon read vol. 1 new teen titans as soon as i fill in theremaining holes
Insight into the character which should be accomplished by scrapping everything done with the character since the reboot and starting again with pre 52 continuity from army experimentation, saving wintergreen, his wife shooting his eye out and developing into the most badass mercenary ever
I just like many of my fellow DC fans have been begging for this day to come. Ive always longed for DC to barrage me with ongoings about characters that i dont care about while at the same time snubbing long established characters with huge fan bases such as shazam...
the 80s-90s ongoing was great since wolfman wrote a lot of it but that new 52 series sucked. as much as I like the character I think deathstroke works best when used like frank miller used punisher in his daredevil run, making badass cameos killing people and having the occasional throw down with a big name hero or team
