Mister Terrific (comics)
Mister Terrific is either of two superheroes in the DC Comics Universe. The Golden Age's Mister Terrific was Terry Sloane, a self-made millionaire whose photographic memory, Olympic-level athletic skills, mastery of the martial arts made him a literal Renaissance man. After graduating college at age 13, he became a renowned business leader in the community. Having accomplished all his goals, he felt there were no challenges left for him to pursue, leading him towards suicidal tendencies. However, upon seeing a young woman jump from a bridge, Sloane reacted and saved the woman, Wanda Wilson. Sloane assisted Wanda's brother, caught up in a gang, by adopting a superhero identity: the Mister Terrific persona; this provided him with. He created the "Fair Play Club" to stymie growing juvenile delinquency, he became an active member of the Justice Society of America until the team was dissolved when the House Un-American Activities Committee ordered them to reveal their secret identities or disband. In the end, they chose the latter to protect themselves and their families from potential retribution from those they had fought in the past if their identities became known.
Following the dissolution of the JSA, Mr. Terrific retired along with many of the others. Years Sloane came out of retirement and joined with the reformed Justice Society of America. While attending their annual meeting with the Justice League of America, he was killed by his old enemy the Spirit King, who had possessed the body of Jay Garrick to infiltrate the JLA's satellite headquarters. In 1997, the mantle of Mister Terrific was passed on to Michael Holt, an talented man who holds five black belts, has won the Olympic Decathlon and holds many degrees and doctorates in a wide spectrum of fields. While contemplating suicide after the accidental death of his wife and unborn child, he was met by the Spectre, who told him about Terry Sloane. Inspired by Sloane's life story, he took the name "Mister Terrific" and joined the current Justice Society of America serving as its chairman, he is the inventor of the T-Sphere, an artificially intelligent miniature device that he controls with his mask and earpieces.
The T-Sphere can fly, create holographic images, project beams of light, release electrical charges, hack into computers and GPS satellites, cloaks Holt against detection and the recording of his image by any and all technological, non-organic means making him invisible to everything but human line of sight. In the past, he has used them for reconnaissance, infiltration and information retrieval and storage multi-tasking his T-Spheres to all go off on different tasks at once, he can use his T-Spheres offensively as projectiles and has stated as a threat to an opponent that he can accelerate them to 14 miles per second so when it hits them, it would cause a tremendous release of energy, turning around 70% of their corporeal being into super-heated plasma and liquifying the rest. Whether this has been tested or was just a bluff is unknown, but considering that his opponent wasn't real, much less alive, Mr. Terrific would have had no moral difficulties in using this option if it came down to it.
While in costume, Mr. Terrific has no fewer than three T-Spheres orbiting his body at all times and has had as many as ten, he is considered the third-smartest man alive. Holt served as the White King in the restructured Checkmate but returned to full-time duties with the JSA. However, Holt was killed in Justice Society of America #30/31, but returned to the land of the living shortly afterwards. In 2011, Holt became the title character in his own Mister Terrific comic book, as part of The New 52, but this was a short run, ending in 2012 after eight issues, he has since appeared in the DC book Earth 2 following his series's cancellation, along with the new incarnation of Terry Sloane. In Kingdom Come, Alex Ross portrayed a Mister Terrific with oversized guns, shoulder pads, other military accoutrements, he displays little idea of its true and original meanings. Another version was portrayed in JSA: The Liberty File and its sequel JSA: The Unholy Three. Here, Terry Sloane was portrayed as a World War II intelligence agent transferred to desk duty, until the untimely death of his fiance by the story's version of the Scarecrow.
He was seen using a rapier. In the JSA All-Stars mini-series chapter focusing on Mister Terrific, Terry's brother Ned appears at a costume ball dressed in an anti-Mister Terrific costume, calling himself Doctor Nil, in order to irritate his brother. In Villains United #5, a new villain calling himself Mister Terrible appears as a part of Deathstroke's criminal army, wearing a variation of Holt's Mister Terrific costume. Terry Sloane appears in the Smallville episode "Absolute Justice", in a painting hanging in the Justice Society of America hall. Michael Holt is mentioned in the Smallville episode "Absolute Justice" in the second half by Lois Lane, who mentions that she skipped an interview with him, he is described as a Nobel-winning tech guru. A character named; when he is first introduced, Curtis works with Felicity Smoak at Palmer Technology. Like his comic book incarnation, he has created the T-spheres and wears the Fair Play jacket. Curtis is a big fan of Green Arrow, after learning that Felicity has a connection with him, he is determined to figure out his identity.
In the episode "Beacon of Hope", Curtis joins Team Arrow tem
The Injustice League is the name of two fictional supervillain teams appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. The Injustice League first appeared in Justice League International #23 and was created by Keith Giffen and J. M. DeMatteis; the original Injustice League was the brainchild of the interplanetary conqueror Agamemno. Bored with his dominion, he set out to conquer their champions, the Justice League. Aided by the alien former dictator Kanjar Ro, Agamemno contacted Lex Luthor and they recruited other supervillains to their cause. Agamemno engineered a switch wherein the villains' minds switched with those of the JLA. In the true JLA's absence, other Silver Age superheroes came to clash with the now evil heroes. Green Lantern used the power of Oa's Central Power Battery and a Thanagarian weapon called the "Absorbascon" to reverse the mind swap. Having spent time in their enemies' bodies, the villains knew their heroic counterparts inside out. To regain the edge, the JLA used the power of Robby Reed's alien H-Dial to transform themselves into different heroes.
Using his power ring through the Absorbascon, Green Lantern removed all knowledge of the heroes' secret identities from the villains' minds. This incarnation was retconned as the first version of the Injustice League. Lex Luthor Black Manta Chronos Catwoman Doctor Light Felix Faust Mister Element Penguin Sinestro The second Injustice League was created by artist Keith Giffen during his run on the Justice League International comic book, it was composed of Cluemaster, Major Disaster, Clock King, Big Sir, Multi-Man, the Mighty Bruce. The team would be used, in line with the humoristic tone of the series, as a unsuccessful villain team. All the actions of the team would end with humoristic failures. During an Annual of the comic book, Maxwell Lord sent them, along with the incompetent Green Lantern G'nort and his nemesis the Scarlet Skier, to Antarctica to become Justice League Antarctica, it was done so in order to get rid of them, but the team would have their headquarters destroyed by mutant penguins.
Afterwards, the Justice League Antarctica were fired. After Giffen's run in the series, the team volunteered to join the Suicide Squad. On their first mission, Big Sir was killed. Lex Luthor and Joker formed an "Injustice League Unlimited", as first seen in the Justice League of America Wedding Special. While it seems the membership is much greater in the promotional image of Justice League of America vol. 2, #13, the core members of the team shown by Wizard magazine are a select group of various arch-nemeses. The team was created by Dwayne McDuffie, a writer from the animated series Justice League Unlimited, which featured a similar expanded Legion of Doom. Lex Luthor has the idea to bring the villains together, claiming it was a protection racket at first, but with the ultimate aim of dominating the world. During the storyline, the Injustice League splits up and manages to capture the Justice League members in small groups. However, the JLA battles the Injustice League at its swamp headquarters.
In the ensuing melee, many of the villains flee. It is revealed at this time that Lex Luthor had a secret goal in forming the League, he mentions that he planned for his capture. The remaining villains are taken away by Amanda Waller and the Suicide Squad, who plan to ship them away to a distant planet, as seen in DC's Salvation Run storyline, it is notable that the alternative covers of the second issue of the arc feature many more villains than were in the League, including Amazo, Black Adam and the Rogues. Though the covers featured a large number of villains, membership differed in the actual story. Membership included: Lex Luthor - Founder Joker - Founder Cheetah - Founder Cheshire - Core member Deathstroke the Terminator - Core member Doctor Light - Core member Fatality - Core member Giganta - Core member Gorilla Grodd - Core member Killer Frost - Core member Parasite - Core member Poison Ivy - Core member Shadow Thief - Core member Shaggy Man III - Core member Black Manta Black Spider Body Doubles Brain Clayface Doctor Sivana Double Dare Effigy Felix Faust Girder Hammer and Sickle Hyena Iron Cross Jewelee Jinx The Key Killer Croc Lady Vic Major Force Magenta Mammoth Manticore Metallo Mister Freeze Mister Terrible Mirror Master Monsieur Mallah Nocturna Phobia Prankster Psimon Queen Bee Rag Doll Reverse-Flash Riddler Rock Scarecrow Shimmer Shrapnel Silver Monkey Skorpio Sonar T.

Salvation Run is a seven-issue 2007-2008 DC Comics limited series, designed to tie into the company's major event series Final Crisis in 2008. The premise of the series, based on a pitch by George R. R. Martin, is that the majority of the DC Universe's supervillains—both major ones and newer or more obscure ones -- have been captured by the Suicide Squad and imprisoned on a distant planet; the story features the villains splitting into alliances and trying to find a way to escape their prison, or choosing to rule the planet "Salvation" on which they have landed. Bill Willingham started as writer, but had to hand the project over to Sturges after only three issues because of illness; the first issue was released in November 2007. Major characters in the mini-series include Superman's archenemy Lex Luthor, Batman's archenemy the Joker, the "Rogues" who battle the Flash, other morally ambiguous heroes such as Vandal Savage's daughter Scandal Savage and Batman's occasional lover Catwoman. Tie-ins to the series have occurred in Countdown to Final Crisis, Checkmate and Justice League of America.
A compiled paperback version of this mini-series was released on September 24, 2008. Following the events of Black Adam's rampage in World War III, the Amazonian attack on the United States, the murder of the Flash, the Injustice League's attack upon the wedding of Green Arrow and Black Canary, a U. S. government sponsored. Initiated by Executive Order by the President of the United States and carried out by head of Task Force X, Amanda Waller, the Suicide Squad, the purpose of the program is to capture the supervillains of the world and permanently exile them to the distant planet Salvation via Boom Tube—including several Suicide Squad members once they are no longer needed. According to Flag, the prisoners would not be getting any supplies or equipment for their survival, as that would make the government responsible for them, once they're offworld, they are no longer Earth's responsibility; the planet chosen was Cygnus 4019, a planet, supposed to be peaceful. However, it turned out to be a "training planet" for the New Gods of Apokolips with Desaad watching the goings-on.
One tie-in issue contradicted this information. Having arrived on the planet first, the Flash's Rogues are the first to find out that the planet is designed to kill any visitors; the planet is inhabited by numerous hazardous species which attack. When it came to the local pygmies, Abra Kadabra realizes they are intelligent and is able to decipher the pygmies' language enough to learn of the "Safe Zone", a "miles long district where all of the dangers have been disarmed by gods from the stars" and the Rogues set out to find it. During their journey, they hear a second Boom Tube decide to go back. Out of the Boom Tubes come Black Spider III, Cheetah III, Clayface I, Girder and Sickle, a Hyena, Kid Karnevil, Killer Croc, Killer Frost II, Mammoth, Mr. Freeze, Mister Terrible, Psimon, Shimmer, Sonar II, Tremor. For a short time, they attempt to assert their leadership over the second group by virtue of their experience; the Body Doubles, Iron Cross, Meanstreak, Rag Doll and Tar Pit end up in a fight with some wild robotic beasts during which Hellhound is wounded.
Despite their plans to leave him to die, the other villains bring Hellhound along, only to feed him to a hunting party of four "lion-lizards." Back at camp, Kid Karnevil tells The Joker that he has looked up to him and plans to surpass him by slaying him when he least suspects it. Psimon loudly orates to the entire group that he has figured out a way for them to survive as a society, build a civilization that will last many generations, requiring that the women be used as baby factories, that escape from the planet be given up as an option; this is met with loud disdain from many others the women. Joker unexpectedly walks up to him and kills him by violently bashing his head in with a rock. At Belle Reve, the Suicide Squad is about to deport Lex Luthor, Blockbuster and Chemo. Rick Flag Jr. closes the transportational Boom Tube with Bane and Deadshot still inside and tells the two that they are no longer needed on the Suicide Squad. After Flag states that he's too unstable to remain, Deadshot vows to somehow return to Earth and kill Rick Flag Jr.
Once on the planet, Lex Luthor commands the attention of the entire supervillain body, saying that he intends to lead them. He makes a speech about Truth and the American Way, explains how they have to build their own Boom Tube if they want to get back, at which time they can murder all of those who sent them to the planet. Although at first some villains jeer him, by the end they are all riled up and cheering for his plans; the villains are fighting amongst themselves, with few mediators. Lex Luthor announces to the group that he, Doctor Sivana, Professor Ivo and General Immortus have devised a way to get them off the rock; as he's orating, The Joker loudly voices his distrust for Luthor as a leader, annoyed that he expects everybody else t
Two-Face is a fictional supervillain appearing in comic books published by DC Comics as an adversary of the superhero Batman. The character was created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger and first appeared in Detective Comics #66; as one of Batman's most enduring enemies, Two-Face belongs to the collective of adversaries that make up Batman's rogues gallery. Once an upstanding Gotham City District Attorney, Harvey Dent is hideously scarred on the left side of his face after mob boss Sal Maroni throws acidic chemicals at him during a court trial, he subsequently goes insane and adopts the "Two-Face" persona, becoming a criminal obsessed with duality and the conflict between good and evil. In years, writers have portrayed Two-Face's obsession with chance and fate as the result of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, dissociative identity disorder, he obsessively makes all important decisions by flipping his former lucky charm, a two-headed coin, damaged on one side by the acid as well. The modern version is established as having once been a personal friend and ally of James Gordon and Batman.
The character has been featured in various media adaptations, such as feature films, television series and video games. Two-Face has been voiced by Richard Moll in the DC animated universe, Troy Baker in the Batman: Arkham series, Billy Dee Williams in The Lego Batman Movie, William Shatner in Batman vs. Two-Face, his live-action portrayals include Billy Dee Williams in Batman, Tommy Lee Jones in Batman Forever, Aaron Eckhart in The Dark Knight, Nicholas D'Agosto in the television series Gotham. In 2009, Two-Face was ranked #12 on IGN's list of the Top 100 Comic Book Villains of All Time. Two-Face first appears in Detective Comics #66 with the name Harvey "Apollo" Kent; the character only made three appearances in the 1940s, appeared twice in the 1950s. By this time, he was dropped in favor of more "kid friendly" villains, though he did appear in a 1968 issue, in which Batman declared him to be the criminal he most fears. In 1971, writer Dennis O'Neil brought Two-Face back, it was that he became one of Batman's arch-enemies.
In his autobiography, Batman creator Bob Kane claims to have been inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde the 1931 film version which he saw as a boy. Some inspiration was derived from the Pulp magazine character the Black Bat whose origin story included having acid splashed on his face. In the wake of Frank Miller's 1986 revision of Batman's origin, Andrew Helfer rewrote Two-Face's history to match; this origin, presented in Batman Annual #14, served to emphasize Dent's status as a tragic character, with a back story that included an abusive, alcoholic father, early struggles with bipolar disorder and paranoia. It was established, in Batman: Year One, that pre-accident Harvey Dent was one of Batman's earliest allies, he had clear ties to both Batman and Commissioner Gordon, making him an unsettling and personal foe for both men. The Pre-Crisis version of Two-Face is Gotham City's handsome young District Attorney. A mobster throws acid in his face during a trial.
Driven insane by his reflection, he renames himself Two-Face and goes on a crime spree, deciding with a flip of his lucky coin whether to break the law or perform acts of charity. Batman and Robin capture him, he is rehabilitated thanks to plastic surgery. Stories, depict him as returning to crime after being re-disfigured; the Post-Crisis version of Harvey Dent is depicted as having had an unhappy childhood. The abuse instills in Dent his lifelong struggle with free will and his eventual inability to make choices on his own, relying on the coin to make all of his decisions. Dent is diagnosed with bipolar disorder and paranoid schizophrenia at a young age, but manages to hide his illnesses and, thanks to an unyielding work ethic, rises up through the ranks of Gotham City's district attorney's office until, at age 26, he becomes the youngest DA in the city's history. Gordon suspected that Dent could be Batman but discarded this suspicion when he realized he lacked the financial resources of Batman.
Dent forges an alliance with police captain James Gordon and Batman to rid Gotham of organized crime. Mob boss Carmine Falcone bribes corrupt Assistant District Attorney Vernon Fields to provide his lieutenant Sal Maroni, whom Dent is trying for murder, with sulfuric acid. Dent reinvents himself as the gangster Two-Face, he scars one side of his father's coin, uses it to decide whether to commit a crime. Two-Face takes his revenge on Fields and Maroni, but is captured by Batman, leading to his incarceration in Arkham Asylum. During the Batman: Dark Victory story arc, the serial killer Hangman targets various cops who assisted in Harvey Dent's rise to the D. A.'s office. Two-Face gathers Gotham's criminals to assist in the destruction of the city's crime lords. After a climactic struggle in the Batcave, Two-Face is betrayed by the Joker, who shoots at Dent, causing him to fall into a chasm to his death. Batman admits in the aftermath that if Two-Face has survived, Harvey is gone forever. During a much period, Two-Face is revealed to have murdered the father of Jason Todd.

The Justice League is a team of fictional superheroes appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The Justice League was conceived by writer Gardner Fox, they first appeared together, as Justice League of America in The Brave and the Bold #28; the Justice League is an assemblage of superheroes. The seven original members were Aquaman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter and Wonder Woman; the team roster has rotated throughout the years, consisting of various superheroes from the DC Universe, such as The Atom, Big Barda, Black Canary, Green Arrow, Elongated Man, the Flash/Wally West, Green Lantern/John Stewart, Hawkman, Plastic Man, Power Girl, Red Tornado, Captain Marvel/Shazam, Zatanna, among many others. The team received its own comic book title called Justice League of America in November 1960. With the 2011 relaunch, DC Comics released a second volume of Justice League. In July 2016, the DC Rebirth initiative again relaunched the Justice League comic book titles with the third volume of Justice League.
Since its inception, the team has been featured in various films, television programs, video games. Various comic book series featuring the Justice League have remained popular with fans since inception and, in most incarnations, its roster includes DC's most popular characters; the Justice League concept has been adapted into various other entertainment media, including various forms of television from the classic Saturday morning Super Friends animated series, a live action series of specials Legends of the Superheroes, an unproduced Justice League of America live-action series, the acclaimed Justice League animated series, its sequel Justice League Unlimited and Justice League Action. A live-action film was in the works around 2008 before being shelved. On June 6, 2012, Warner Bros. announced a new live action Justice League film was in development with Will Beall hired as screenwriter. However, the project was scrapped again. After the success of the Superman reboot Man of Steel, a film titled Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was released in March 2016, directed by Zack Snyder.
Batman v Superman script writer Chris Terrio has penned the script for Justice League. In a story told in flashback in Justice League of America #9, the Appelaxians infiltrated Earth. Competing alien warriors were sent to see who could conquer Earth first, to determine who will become the new ruler of their home planet; the aliens' attacks drew the attentions of Aquaman, Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter and Wonder Woman. While the superheroes individually defeated most of the invaders, the heroes fell prey to a single competitor's attack. For many years, the heroes heralded this adventure as the event that prompted them to agree to pool resources when confronted with similar menaces. In Justice League of America #144, Green Arrow uncovered inconsistencies in the team's records and extracted admissions from his colleagues that the seven founders had formed the League after Martian Manhunter was rescued from Martian forces by the other six founders, along with several other heroes including Robin, Congorilla, Rex the Wonder Dog, Lois Lane.
Green Lantern participated in this first adventure as Hal Jordan, as he had yet to become the costumed hero, the biggest inconsistency Arrow found, as they celebrated the earlier incident's date, while recounting only the one's events. When the group formalized their agreement, they suppressed news of it because of anti-Martian hysteria; because the heroes had not revealed their identities to each other at the time, they did not realize that Jordan and Green Lantern were one and the same when he turned up in costume during the event described in #9. While most subsequent accounts of the League have made little mention of this first adventure, the animated Justice League series adapted this tale as the origin of the Justice League as well. Secret Origins vol. 2, #32 updated Justice League of America #9's origin for post-Crisis continuity. Differences included the inclusion of the Silver Age Black Canary as a founding member and the absence of Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman; the JLA: Year One limited series, by Mark Waid, Brian Augustyn and Barry Kitson, further expanded the Secret Origins depiction.
In Justice League Task Force #16, during Zero Hour, a unknown superhuman named Triumph appeared. Triumph was their leader. On his first mission with the Justice League, Triumph "saved the world" but was teleported into a dimensional limbo that affected the timestream, erasing all memory of him. In Infinite Crisis #7, the formation of "New Earth" restored Wonder Woman as a founding member of the Justice League. In Brad Meltzer's Justice League of America #0, it was revealed that Superman and Batman were again founding members as well. 52 #51 confirmed that the 1989 Secret Origins and JLA: Year One origins were still in continuity at that time, with Superman and Wonder Woman joining the team with founding members' status shortly after the group's formation with Aquaman, Black Canary, Green Lantern and Martian Manhunter. In Justice League of America #12, the founding members of the Justice League were shown to be Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Aquaman, and
Deathstroke is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. He is a mercenary and assassin who serves as the archenemy of the Teen Titans Dick Grayson, he is named in honor of American actor John Carradine. Over the years, writers have developed him as an adversary of other superheroes in the DC Universe as well, such as Batman and Green Arrow. Deathstroke has been ranked as the 24th Greatest Villain of All Time by Wizard magazine, as the 32nd Greatest Comic Book Villain of All Time by IGN; the character has been adapted from the comics into multiple forms of media, including several Batman-related projects and the Teen Titans animated series. He has been portrayed in live-action by Manu Bennett on The CW's television series Arrow, by Joe Manganiello in the DC Extended Universe, beginning with a cameo in the 2017 film Justice League, soon by Esai Morales in the web television series Titans. Created by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez, the character was introduced as "Deathstroke the Terminator" in The New Teen Titans #2 in December 1980.
Christopher J. Priest said: ot only was Marv’s Deathstroke a villain, he was kind of an asshole, which I thought was unique, he wasn’t some misunderstood anarchist. I read that and went, “Whoa"; this was beyond The Joker, well beyond Lex Luthor. Marv created the first modern supervillain, he broke every rule by making Deathstroke three-dimensional and giving him internal conflicts while maintaining a level of skeeve we weren’t used to seeing from a typical 2-dimensional bad guy. Due to his popularity, Deathstroke received his own series, Deathstroke the Terminator, in 1991, it was retitled Deathstroke the Hunted for issues #0 and #41–45. The series was cancelled with issue #60. In total, Deathstroke ran for 65 issues. Following his injury in DC Universe: Last Will and Testament, Deathstroke appears in one of the four Faces of Evil one-shots, written by David Hine. Hine has explained that the series is part of the set-up for future stories: "All of the characters in this ‘Faces of Evil’ series were selected for their potential as major players in the coming year."Even though the character of Deathstroke the Terminator predates James Cameron's film The Terminator by four years, the Slade Wilson character is now called Deathstroke by characters who had called him Terminator for decades.
The full title has not fallen out of use, having been referenced as as Justice League Elite. Slade Wilson was sixteen years old when he first enlisted in the United States Army, having lied about his age. After serving a stint in Korea, he was assigned to Camp Washington where he had been promoted to the rank of Major. In the early 1960s, he met Captain Adeline Kane, tasked with training young soldiers in new fighting techniques in anticipation of brewing troubles taking place in Vietnam. Kane was amazed at how skilled Slade was and how he adapted to modern conventions of warfare, she fell in love with him, realized that he was without a doubt the most able-bodied combatant she had encountered. She offered to train Slade in guerrilla warfare. In less than a year, Slade mastered every fighting form presented to him and was soon promoted to the rank of lieutenant colonel. Six months Adeline and he were married and she became pregnant with their first child; the war in Vietnam began to escalate and Slade was shipped overseas.
In the war, his unit massacred an event which sickened him. He was rescued by SAS member Wintergreen, to whom he would return the favor. Chosen for a secret experiment, the Army imbued him with enhanced physical powers in an attempt to create metahuman super soldiers for the U. S. military. Deathstroke became a mercenary soon after the experiment when he defied orders and rescued his friend Wintergreen sent on a suicide mission by a commanding officer with a grudge. However, Slade kept this career secret from his family though his wife was an expert military combat instructor. A criminal named the Jackal took his younger son Joseph Wilson hostage to force Slade to divulge the name of a client who had hired him as an assassin. Slade refused, he killed the kidnappers at the rendezvous. Joseph's throat was slashed by one of the criminals before Slade could prevent it, destroying Joseph's vocal cords and rendering him mute. After taking Joseph to the hospital, Adeline was enraged at his endangerment of her son and tried to kill Slade by shooting him, but only managed to destroy his right eye.
Afterwards, his confidence in his physical abilities was such that he made no secret of his impaired vision, marked by his mask which has a black, featureless half covering his lost right eye. Without his mask, Slade wears an eyepatch to cover his eye. Slade has a long history as an enemy of the Teen Titans, beginning when his other son Grant received superhuman enhancements from the H. I. V. E. Dubbed himself Ravager, accepted a contract from them to kill or capture the Teen Titans. However, Grant's enhancements proved fatal, Slade agreed to complete the contract, his first mission involved stealing the element Promethium from S. T. A. R. Labs and selling it as the ultimate weapon, he kidnapped the Titans and placed them in the path of a Promethium bomb to test his device for the buyers killing two birds with one stone. The Titans escaped and pursued Deathstroke, but he wounded Beast Boy in his escape; this wou
