Reasons Why Deathstroke Will Become Your Favourite DC Character

 To celebrate the release of Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons on digital download August 4th and DVD & Blu-Ray™ August 17th, we wanted to let you know a little more about one of DC’s lesser known characters. 

Having appeared in comic books and TV series before, Deathstroke (AKA Slade Wilson) now appears front and centre in this new DC Animation, giving us a chance to see him in all his glory. Here are all the reasons we think he’s pretty awesome! 

An Indestructible Soldier 

One of the most extraordinary dimensions of Deathstroke are his remarkable abilities, which were given to him after he was chosen for a secret experiment where the army hoped to transform him into a super-soldier. 

During the operation, the army imbued him with adrenaline serums, to enhance his brain activity. This left him with an incredible range of powers, notably accelerated healing meaning he can heal wounds in just minutes, making him the ultimate soldier. 

In addition, Slade’s incredible new powers included: decelerated aging, toxic immunity, enhanced senses and superhuman agility, durability, speed, reflexes, stamina and strength. 

A Knight in Shining Armour 

Another reason why Deathstroke is slightly different from other DC supervillains, is his morality. Deathstroke’s job as an assassin is largely based around seeking revenge on those who have caused harm to others. Even though his actions cause death and destructions, he truly believes he is using his super-soldier strength for good and what he is doing is right, often acting as a “Knight in Shining Armour”. 

Another example of Deathstroke’s morality and core values is shown in Deathstroke: Knights and Dragons, where he risks everything and pushes his body to the limits to save his son and keep his family together. 

Deathstroke’s word is his bond, and you cannot get more genuine than that. 

Badass Assassin 

What more of a reason do you need to admire Deathstroke than the fact he is a straight up bad-ass assassin, never needing back up and always fighting solo. Despite his extra-ordinary body, Slade is also impressively talented in combat, after his training in the army, and is often called the “World’s Greatest Assassin”. 

“Deathstroke is sometimes villain, sometimes anti-hero, and always deadly,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Senior Vice President. 

His Armour Has a Meaning 

Deathstroke’s armour was carefully thought out by original character designers George Pérez and Marv Wolfman. His orange and black colour scheme portrays his personality, with the two colours reflecting the differences between his lighter and darker sides – the difference between Slade and Deathstroke. 

The dark side of the career but the morality of the man. 

Mercenary and master assassin Slade Wilson leads two lives: one as the relentless killer known as Deathstroke, and the other as a dedicated family man. 

Deathstroke: Knight & Dragons will be available on digital download August 4th and DVD & Blu-Ray™ August 17th.
