For more than forty years, Slade Wilson has been one of DC’s most compelling—and loathsome—antagonists. He’s famously targeted the Teen Titans numerous times, along with remaining a consistent threat across the DC Universe. And now he’s ready for something different.
In the newest solo series starring the character, Deathstroke Inc. from writer Joshua Williamson and artist Howard Porter, Slade joins with an ages-old secret organization called T.R.U.S.T. His mission? Hunting down the biggest villains, with the coolest (and deadliest) technology at his disposal. But as Williamson is quick to note, just because Deathstroke is fighting bad guys, that absolutely doesn’t make him a good guy. Luckily, one genuine hero is on board to keep him in check: Black Canary.
DC Nation spoke with Williamson about what makes this series distinct from past Deathstroke stories, the inherently suspicious nature of T.R.U.S.T., working with Howard Porter, and what Black Canary might really be up to.
