Slade Wilson, also known as Deathstroke, is one of the world's deadliest assassins, a mercenary for hire and most dangerous enemy of the Teen Titans. Of former military status, subject of a failed medical experiment, he has since taken up work as a mercenary, armed with multiple weapons, and considered expert with blades, firearms and explosives. Distinguishing characteristics include an impaired right eye, graying hair, and orange accented black body armor. His augmentations, coupled with his mastery of hand-to-hand combat make him a formidable opponent.

Wilson was an accomplished member of the special forces. This distinction earned him admittance into a covert program where he was subjected to extensive mental and physical augmentation. The procedures left him with increased mental function, as well as enhanced speed, strength, and stamina.

Following his military service, Wilson worked for various private military contractors before striking out on his own – and allegedly becoming one of the highest paid contract killers in the world, specializing in high profile assassinations.


U.S. Army officer Slade Wilson volunteered for dangerous hormone experiments designed to create super soldiers. His strength, agility, healing, stamina, and brain capacity were increased. Slade became a mercenary following the end of his army career and sold his services to the highest bidder as one of, if not the best, mercenaries in the world.

Alternate FutureEdit

In the alternate timeline where the conflict between heroes and villains has escalated to war, Deathstroke has joined forces alongside Lex Luthor in fighting the remnants of the Justice League.

While initially confronting and attacking Wonder Woman during the final battle, he steals her lasso and uses it on Batman, trapping him and attempting to beat him to death save for the intervention of the Joker, who, in a fit over who should kill Batman, fired a bazooka at them both.

While surviving the blast relatively unscathed, Deathstroke defended himself against Brainiac's invading armies before being digitized alongside Cyborg, Wildcat, Killer Croc, and Circe.

Combat StatisticsEdit



  • Deathstroke is also in a mission by Oracle or Batman where the Riddler (now retired) has had a hit put out on him by Joker who fraudulently hires Deathstroke to make the kill.
