LMAO the only good Deathstroke outfit is the video game one. That shit was the best and is the only way DS should ever appear in any form.

Yea as it stands it's a bit Deadpooly

Yeah; build's slim down, two ninja swords on the back.....kind of a "chest holster thing" going almost.

Gloves on the hand kind of make me think of Deadpool's gloves.

Also kind of makes me think of that guy from metal gear a little; grey fox, cyber fox something like that.

But using it as a base, I could make it magic

I always liked Slade's original outfit.

It's the one I always put him in when I play challenge maps in Arkham Origins.

First of all Deathstroke should never dual wield katanas. He should have a sleek but tactical blade, with a guard. Something akin to darksword armories Black Prince. Or a Type XX or XVa blade

This new look reminds me a lot of his Young Justice design.

Which had a godawful enormously bushy ponytail on the back of his head.

Issue 5 was fantastic. I never check sales figures but I hope this is near the top.

The battle of wits between Deathstroke and Batman is perfectly written. Unlike most writers, Priest doesn't equate wits with having the most gear or battle board "prep" (though there is some of that.) He had Batman get completely within Deathstroke's head without making Deathstroke seem dumb -quite the opposite - and did the vice versa as well.

He also does a great job of showing that in a twisted way Slade does care for his daughter, but in such a fucked up way that it isn't close to being healthy. Priest said this series would be about the consequences of violence and he's right.

Batman was so fucking cool in this issue. The easy thing would be to have him job to Deathstroke, since it's Deathstroke's book, and that's what writers do to Batman to make their characters seem cool. Instead he came off as a complete pro. His insight into Deathstroke's motivations were killer.

Damian also had some great dialogue, giving Deathstroke the business in a way that would shatter a lesser man's ego.

I agree. This was much more interesting than a meaningless fight, which would only serve to make both Batman and Deathstroke look dumb for having to resort to that.

I'm in full-on fanboy mode for this series.

Deathstroke is one of the better written, mature series we’ve had in years, and I love it

I only have a few minor issues
