Jericho, real name Joseph "Joey" Wilson, is the second son of the mercenary Deathstroke and his ex-wife, Adeline Kane. At an early age, Joseph was kidnapped by the terrorist Jackal and a knife wound to his throat rendered him permanently mute. Due to his father's genetics, Joseph possesses a metahuman gene, which enables him to access higher brain functions, granting him varied psychic-based abilities; like astral projection and possession. He has been a superhero and villain, member of the Teen Titans, Defiance, the Wildebeest Society, and the Justice League Reserves. Joseph is also gay or bisexual, being romantically linked to RavenKole, and Terrence. In the Prime Earth continuity, Joseph was originally given the alias "Jericho" by his former lover, David Isherwood, based on the biblical city of the same name.

Jericho was created by Marv Wolfman and George Pérez, first appearing in Tales of the Teen Titans #42 (1984).
