Deathstroke – God Killer | Comics

When Deathstroke is hired by a God of Olympus to kill another imprisoned god, Slade have to travel to the land of Themyscira.

During Slade Wilson's previous encounter with Odysseus has restored his youth as well as his eye by an old guy named I-Ching but as Deathstroke The Terminator, he has lost his edge (Gods of War). He is approached by Olympian God Hephaestus for a task and presented him the infamous God-Killer sword upon meeting to kill a god.

Normally, he wouldn't even think about it at all but since he his way past broke now, he accepted the contract. His current benefactor from their mercenary team "Dead Bastards", Victor Ruiz watches him in action alongside Olympian's forger of weapons.

Slade is pitted against a few grizzly monsters of that island and he cuts them down with God-Killer as it vibrates with his hatred and rage. Slade complains about the fact that a weapon which constantly changes its shape and weight is quite difficult to master.

Nevertheless, he becomes a part with the blade feeling its own emotions of hatred and massacred them all with ease. The forger seemed impressed with his abilities as a mere mortal to handle God Killer and Victor points out, Slade is no mere mortal either.

Before taking the assignment, he goes to see his daughter Rose Wilson one more time and left a note for his son Jericho. Hephaestus then drops him to Paradise Island and reveals his target to be an exiled Titan named Lapetus, whose essence was spread around Themyscira and he was known as The God of Mortality.

Slade sneaks through the forest to Tartarus, guided by the sword while trying to avoid being seen by The Amazons. The Olympian forger decided to aid him as a floating projection by his side and upon slaying the guards, he finds a statue.

Apparently it bears a resemblance to Apollo and Slade striking it with God Killer at the urge of the sword itself let Lapetus easily broke out of it and escape, leaving the assassin alone to face the wrath of current God of War, Wonder Woman!

Slade faces a furious Amazon Queen charging at him, believing he is responsible for release of Lapetus and he explains why he set foot on Paradise Island in the first place, to kill this imprisoned Titan with God-Killer blade from Hephaestus. Diana and Deathstroke both realize that they are currently on same page with a bit of help from her friend Hessia.

While they all were busy arguing, scattered essence of Lapetus from all corners of Paradise Island begins to slowly gather to unleash his madness upon the world once again. Seeing no other way to stop him, Diana and Hessia allowed Deathstroke a chance to do what is right since he has his way with the God-Killer sword.

After decimating an army of demons, he finds himself confronting his children Rose and Jericho, whereas Diana sees her deceased mother Hippolyta. They both face their demons and ultimately were able to escape from the illusion. When it felt like their fight against Lapetus is lost, a certain Man of Steel enters the scene.

Deathstroke – God Killer

While doing illustration for this monthly book, artist Tony Daniel (Superman/Wonder Woman, The Tenth) eventually took writer's duty to pen out the second Deathstroke storyline from third ongoing volume along with James Bonny.

Artists Eduardo Pansica and Tyler Kirkham (The Darkness, Tomb Raider) also served as guest-penciller for last three issues of the story, which is from Prime Earth timeline of DC Comics. "God Killer" takes premise from a standpoint of Slade's previous misadventure as a trained assassin and sets him a little out of his league facing a rogue Titan.

To Kill A God

Someone among the Pantheon of Olympian Gods wanted Titan Lapetus dead so that he never becomes a threat in future and hired elite mercenary Slade Wilson for this job via Hephaestus. Not only his contract of killing a god is near impossible but it really takes the metaphorical cake when Superman and Wonder Woman come to stand in his way.

With lots of hard to handle actions, it leaves Slade Wilson paying a high price even if he comes out successful in the end of this assignment. In spite of him trying to reconcile with his children, Jericho and Rose still doesn't want to talk to him yet.

Deathstroke – Gods of War | Comics

Someone is trying to take down Slade Wilson, the world's greatest assassin and he is betrayed by his trusted allies.

Though Deathstroke, The Terminator has a reputation of being the world's greatest mercenary and deadliest assassin, his alter ego of Slade Wilson is of an adventurer's. When you have more than 600 kills in your career, they have to take you seriously.

His job requires him to travel a lot and his middle-man Tiggs just booked him a contract, which will take him back to Russia, despite Putin himself had asked him not to go back there again. However, his current assignment dictates that he takes out a target named "Possum" for some easy money this time.

There, Slade gotten busy with his contact Angelica in bed and her resources proved to be very useful when he gets to work. All of the targets from his list never saw him coming before he got the drop on them. As they had Possum in their custody, she informed Deathstroke that these people were trying to set him up.

Before figuring out what is going on, he is taken down a frequency transmission and his captive kills Angelica before she could help him. Asking Slade to spill out a code, which he can hear, the ugly mark starts stabbing him on the back with his sword.

Deathstroke – Gods of War | Comics

Putting Slade's healing factor on some serious test, Possum states that Odysseus wants his head but before he could deliver a killing blow, the mercenary took his sword back and shoves it up on the scum's throat, effectively ending his worthless life.

Briefly tending to his wound to stop bleeding, Wilson is attacked by a dozen of backup assassins, whom he slaughtered with ruthless efficiency. As he is bombarded and barely walks, his still not dead enemy watches from distant. Arriving at the doorstep of an old man called I-Ching, Slade collapses on floor before him.

Waking up fully healed, Wilson realizes that he is reverted back to his old, young self again with his right eye being restored but I-Ching disappears telling him to watch his back and he ended up finding a hologram of a swordsman in mask. A person introducing himself as Red Fury walks in to point out that is Deathstroke's next target.

Before they could catch up, more hired killers appear out of nowhere and overwhelmed him but he quickly starts dispatching them all. Meanwhile, Lady Shiva called in Slade's old drinking buddy Bronze Tiger to lead the League of Assassins and hunt Odysseus down.

Trying to find out what he has actually missed, he drank up a truth serum Red Fury gave him earlier only to have visions of his imprisoned son Jericho in a test facility. Slade apparently fought to free his son from captivity who loses control and starts killing of scientists who used the boy to bring Odysseus back to life.

He then ran into Joker's girlfriend and Suicide Squad recruit Harley Quinn, who claimed to have known the locations of his children but is pissed off at him for selling her out previously. Hoping to get out of his clutches, Harley leads Deathstroke into a trap where he has a face-off against The Dark Knight, Batman!

Deathstroke – Gods of Wars

Initially, there was a short-lived version of Deathstroke monthly ongoing series that was the second line of publication, started in wake of The New 52 following the reality-altering "Flashpoint" crossover event and DC Comics re-launched this enigmatic character of theirs with a third monthly volume in 2014.

"Gods of War" marks the first storyline from that continuation that collects the first six issues plotted and drawn by Tony Daniel (Superman/Wonder Woman – Power Couple, Superman/Wonder Woman – War and Peace). Pitting his anti-hero image up front, Daniel portrays a new beginning for the deadly assassin.

Odysseus Has Risen!

Task Force X member Harley Quinn, Gotham's self-appointed protector Batman, master assassin Lady Shiva, vigilante adventurer Bronze Tiger as well as two of Slade's estranged children Jericho and Ravager was part of the puzzle in the running story.

In spite of him being world’s deadliest assassin, Wilson got punked by his trusted allies. Mysteries revolving around primary antagonist Odysseus may seem a little off the place but a foundation for his forthcoming adventures are build up. Slade Wilson will be stepping into a larger mess up next in the "God Killer" arc, feuding with some gods for real!

There was an oil rig in Pacific that Oliver used to party which is once attacked by a terrorist named Iron Eagle who wanted to loot the oil. Ollie took it upon him to fight the pirates and he incapacitates their leader but unfortunately the detonator that was rigged to the explosives strapped on everyone goes off anyway and the blast killed everyone except him, drifting him to a distant island.

Nightwing | Comics

Dick Grayson leaves his Robin pixie boots behind to pursue high-flying solo action as acrobatic super-hero Nightwing!

The young son of late John and Mary Grayson of the acrobat family act "Flaying Grayson" from The Haley Circus, Dick Grayson would become the first Robin, when he was adopted by Batman following the death of his parents and trained the boy to be his sidekick.

The boy grown to his own shades under the cape and become an ally in crime-fighting who can take on almost any members of Batman's Rogues Gallery if he has to. Then evidently, there came a time when he had a major tiff with The Dark Knight about his duties and priorities, which led him to be fired and he finally left The Shadow of the Bat.

Nightwing: Year One
Following a faceoff against Clayface, Dick Grayson was fired by his mentor for lack of dedication to their crusade and is banished from Batcave. Since his days of fighting crime as Robin is over, he didn't know what to do next and goes to meet Clark Kent at the Daily Planet. After a small adventure with Superman, these two talks about the situation.

Nightwing | Comics

Dick took inspiration from a legendary figure of Krypton named Nightwing, who similarly used a persona to continue his heroic deeds and goes back to Haly's Circus to find a calling. There he would meet with the ghostly apparition of Deadman and hang out with his old pals before he dons a new costume to get back at what he does best with his talent.

He visits Gotham City for a meet and greet with Commissioner Gordon to let him know that he will be flying solo from now on. Dick then hitched a ride around the city with Batgirl to take a quick tour to Arkham Asylum re-introduce his new persona to The Joker before raiding the Iceberg Lounge that Penguin owns to upset him a little bit.

Meanwhile, Batman encounters a young boy named Jason Todd in Crime Alley that would become the second Robin and cross paths with him during the Gauntlet but eventually ended up working together to save a kidnapped Alfred from Killer Croc. Instead of seeing eye-to-eye with Bruce, he sends a message to him via Barbara about moving on.

Grayson continues to serve justice as Nightwing but is still connected to and considered as an invaluable team-member of the Batman Family. Though his fighting skills are next to The Dark Knight himself, he also possesses nearly the same intellect as Batman.
