DC Comics has unleashed a new era for Slade Wilson, a.k.a. Deathstroke!
Adios, eyepatch! Deathstroke has two eyes again, he’s much younger than he was before, and he looks suspiciously like Manu Bennett, the actor who portrayed Slade Wilson on Arrow. But more importantly, Deathstroke is now armed with the God-Killer Sword, which makes Slade dangerous even to the immortal Gods themselves!
Victor Ruiz and Hephaestus have chosen Deathstroke for a deadly mission that will take him straight into Tartarus. However, in order to get there, Deathstroke will have to storm the entrance on the Isle of Themyscira, the home of the Amazons! And that means a certain Amazon heroine may not be far behind…
“Beginning a titanic new arc: “God Killer”! Slade is armed by Hephaestus to take down one of the Olympian Gods! If any man is bold enough to believe he can murder a god – it’s Deathstroke!”
Artist and co-writer Tony S. Daniel kicks off the new storyline this Wednesday, June 24 in Deathstroke # 7 with co-writer James Bonny, inker Sandu Florea, colorist Tomeu Morey, and letterer Rob Leigh.
