Quote1 The walls of his carefully constructed existence will come crumbling down around him. The horns will sound and the battle cry will be given. He will beg us for mercy when we are finished, mother. We will give none to him. He will know and tremble at the wrath of Jericho! Quote2
-- Jericho src

Joseph W. "Joey" Wilson is the youngest son of Slade Wilson (Deathstroke), from whom he inherited the metahuman gene, and Adeline Kane. He has been mute since childhood, when one of his father's enemies cut his throat.[3] As an adult, his former lover, the catholic David Isherwood (Dr. Ikon), gave him the alias Jericho based on the Bible, about justice breaking down strongholds.[4] In the business world Joey also became Executive Vice President of Core Policy Group.[1]

Powers

  • Enhanced Brain Capacity: Due to his father's metahuman gene, Jericho possesses a metahuman gene, which enables him to access his brain functions on a cellular level, granting him psychic-based abilities.[5][6]
  • Astral Projection: Jericho can separate his "soul-self" from his physical body.[5]
    • Possession: Jericho's soul-self can enter and control the bodies of others. If possessing a meta-human, Jericho has been able to use their powers and abilities, as well as his own powers.
  • Psychic Energy Manipulation: Joseph possesses an as of yet unexplained ability to project a form of psionic force from his mind which can have devastating effects both on the mental and physical level when used.[5]
    • Telekinesis: On the physical side, Jericho could often yet uncontrollably employ his abilities as an invisible blast wave that destroys everything around him.[5]
      • Psionic Rupturing: Jericho could emit his mental energy as a devastating blast of raw energy which could blow apart living bodies or inorganic elements with ease.[7]
      • Psionic Shield: Jericho learned to project his power into a protective barrier to shield him and a select group of people from a plane crash.[6]
      • Psionic Healing: Jericho has been shown to rapidly heal himself and others by channeling psionic energies into their body to increase the speed of their healing process.[8]
    • Telepathy: Joseph is an exceptional if incredibly raw mentalist, with very little control over his abilities aside. He's adept enough to reach into a persons mindscape in order to coax them back to cognizance.[8]
      • Illusion Casting: Jericho has been shown to create convincing illusions that can fool other more apt psionics with ease.[9]
      • Mind Control: Jericho is capable of controlling the minds of others assuming they are within his physical presence.[9]
      • Mind Reading: Jericho is able to read, detect and scan the thoughts patters of other living beings.[9]
      • Psychic Vision: Jericho frequently has visions of events occurring in the past, present, and future.[9]

Abilities

Weaknesses

  • Dormant Body: Whenever Jericho leaves his body, it is vulnerable to physical harm due to it being completely immobile.
  • Power Instability: Joseph often had very little to no control over his psychic powers, often unleashing devastating mind pulses which devastated the surrounding area like a small atom bomb.[5]
  • Mental Illness: Jericho suffered from migraines that stemmed from psychological causes.[1]
  • Mutism: According to his mother, Joseph had his throat slashed by Deathstroke as a child,[15] but it was later revealed that was by one of his father's enemies[3] (in fact Adeline blames her ex-husband).[16]

Equipment

  • Ikon Suit (mark 7 master unit)[2]
  • Subvocal Mic: Jericho has an app that vocalizes his thoughts on his phone via bluetooth, granting him the ability to communicate without having to resort to sign language.
  • Gravity Droplet: Jericho accepted from Lex Luthor the power of a gravity droplet to replace his ruined Ikon Suit, a power that was intended for his father, then taken for dead, but which he eventually accepted after Luthor told him that if he did not accept, perhaps his sister Rose would.[17] The singularity's black-body radiation has turbocharged Jericho's metagenic abilities; in addition to granting him a bluish skin and enhancing his powers of telekinesis, telepathy and psionics, the gravity droplet awoke in him the following superpowers:
