Deathstroke is a supervillain, a mercenary and assassin. He is an archenemy of superheroes such as the Teen Titans, Batman, and the Green Arrow.
Slade Wilson, the man who would become Deathstroke, enlisted in the army at age 16. Eventually, army Captain Adeline Kane fell in love with him and privately trained him in techniques of guerrilla warfare.
The two married and Slade served in the Vietnam War. Later, he was involved in an experiment to create enhanced super-soldiers. Soon, he defied orders and became a mercenary.
Deathstroke first appeared in The New Teen Titans comic book in 1980. He has been called "the first modern supervillain."
Said one comic book writer, "He wasn't some misunderstood anarchist." Rather, he deliberately did repulsive and immoral things in order to exact revenge on his enemies.
