Before we move on to Deathstroke’s Costume, let’s remember where it all began

Slade Wilson’s origin is actually incredibly fascinating if you’re unfamiliar with it. At the age of seventeen, he enlisted in the army and proved to be a valuable asset. He was even acknowledged as being one of the best soldiers, earning a few awards and settling down with a fellow soldier, Adeline Kane, and siring a son, Grant.

Slade became acquainted with a few notable people, William Wintergreen and John Lynch during this time, and later worked with them until they eventually separated.

After volunteering for risky experiments, Slade’s humanity began to take a turn for the worse, but the company was later shut down and he returned to his family. It wasn’t until someone gave him a tip, stating that someone from the company planned to testify about the experiments to Congress and Slade was hired to “take care” of the situation.

This was the first time he donned a suit similar to that of “Deathstroke”, originally, dissatisfied with the color scheme but tolerating it for the sake of the mission.
