The The Judas Contract: Book Three - There Shall Come a Titan! wiki last edited by Blue_Shield on 10/17/14 04:06PM View full history

"The Judas Contract" part 3, the origin of Deathstroke the Terminator is revealed! With his teammates captured and betrayed by one of their own, Dick Grayson dons a new costume and a new identity: Nightwing! Continued in TALES OF THE TEEN TITANS ANNUAL #3.

Spoilers

At Titans Tower, Dick Grayson stands incredulous as Adeline Kane accuses Terra of collusion with their most hated foe Deathstroke the Terminator. As his former wife, Adeline has intimate knowledge of Slade Wilson's origins. She provides Robin with a complete history of Slade's life.

After concluding her tale, Adeline convinces Dick to allow them to help rescue the Titans. Dick runs upstairs to don a brand new costume, and with it a new identity. When he returns to the meeting hall, he is no longer Robin the Boy Wonder. He is now Nightwing. Joey too has a costume and has taken to calling himself Jericho. Dick is still unsure about having Joey around, but Adeline reveals that the experiments which gave Slade his powers, had a mutagenic side-effect in his son. Joey has the ability to physically possess the bodies of other people. After a quick demonstration, he communicates (through sign language) his desire to bring his father to justice. Nightwing is still reluctant, but agrees to accept his aid. They fly off in the T-Jet on the trail of Deathstroke and Terra.

Tales from the past & The Birth of a new hero 0

This issue is a bridge, build by Wolfman to create the right amount of expectative towards the conclusion of this arc story and to explain some of the Terminator´s mysterious past. I´ve read his story lots of time, but I guess this was the first time Wolfman told the true origin of Deathstroke the Terminator and for that this is a must have issue for every fan of him. Like I said this issue is just a bridge between the last two issues and the conclusion, more focused about  Adeline telling Dick ...
