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.

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.

Deathstroke | Comics

Long before he turned into the world's deadliest and most highly sought assassin, Slade Wilson had a thing for combat techniques. He joined the army in his early teens and rose to the rank of Major in a very short time. Highly impressed at his skill set, his combat trainer Captain Adeline Kane fell in love with him and trained him in guerrilla warfare.

Slade was drafted to Vietnam War while Adeline was pregnant and an event of massacring an entire village by his unit deeply scarred him. He joined a U.S. Military project for creating Meta-Human and then he secretly started operating as a mercenary. But his cover to his family is blown by the Jackal who kidnapped Slade’s son Joseph Wilson and the confrontation with his wife cost him his right eye and wearing a patch, he became Deathstroke.

He started antagonizing the Teen Titans and develops an animosity with Beast Boy by gravely injuring him. Then he used Terra as a mole inside the Titans to take them down (Judas Contract). With help from his son Jericho, Nightwing took him down. During Titans Hunt, Slade was hired by Doom Patrol to seek out the Titans.

He lost Jericho in fight but later seen controlling Rose Wilson AKA The Ravager. In a confrontation against the Justice League, Green Arrow pissed him off and Slade grew a feud on him. Slade was a member of Lex Luthor’s Secret Society and hired Nightwing to train Rose. One Year Later, Slade came back at Green Arrow, formed Titans East, started manipulating Batgirl and joined the League of Assassins to control Damian Wayne against Batman.

Appearing on the second issue of The New Teen Titans monthly series in 1980, Deathstroke soon made a name for himself in the comic book industry.

Aside from his clashes with superheroes like Batman, Green Arrow, Teen Titans and Justice League, he was a key character in major events and storylines such as Family Lost, No Man's Land, Identity Crisis, Justice League Elite, Infinite Crisis, Road to Jericho, Final Crisis, Blackest Night, The Return of Bruce Wayne and Brightest Day. Before DC Comics rebooted their timeline to The New 52, Slade Wilson appeared briefly in the “Flashpoint” crossover to die at the hand of Aquaman.
