Slade Wilson, better known as Deathstroke, hails from an alternate reality in the Dark Multiverse where Wintergreen had died shortly after meeting Slade. This left no one to keep Slade's actions or morals in check and allowed him to turn into a sadistic psychopath. After his eldest son, Grant, died, he allowed his younger son, Jericho, to die with his throat cut by Walsh the Jackal,[1][2] drowned his daughter, Rose, when he discovered her and even killed his wife, Adeline.

Deathstroke lost his powers, including his healing factor and slowed age, when he was drugged by his archenemy, Arthur Villain. He also received an incurable cancer. He managed to go around the world and torture various scientists to build him a highly advanced suit of armor to enhance him and replace his former powers.

Eventually, he encountered Damian Wayne and convinced him to turn on his father, Batman, which led to his death. Shortly after this, the Teen Titans arrived to stop him and Damian. He managed to kill Kid Flash, Beast Boy, Cyborg and Nightwing before encountering Raven. As they were about to fight, there was a blinding flash of light. Meanwhile, as an unintentional side-effect of having his powers enhanced, Jericho accidentally transported Slade to Prime Earth after the death of that world's Slade. As a result, Jericho was unaware that he had brought Slade to his universe. After waking up in Prime Earth, Deathstroke blamed the Teen Titans, specifically Raven for messing with his head. He then proceeded to murder his son in law, Hosun and began hunting down the rest of the Wilson family.

After learning that Lex Luthor was distributing gifts to various villains around the world, he approached the Legion of Doom demanding the "gift" he gave to Jericho, in hopes of saving himself from the cancer, but they refused to give it to him. To that end, he continued hunting the Wilsons down to flush Jericho out so he could take the gift from him. He eventually found Jericho, who took him into space in an attempt to kill him. In turn, Slade used his suit to break the force barrier holding him and apparently kill Jericho. This was revealed to be a robot, and he plummeted back to Earth, where upon crashing encountered this worlds Slade, who was revealed to still be alive.

The two initially talked to each other in order to determine what to do. Prime Earth's Slade, seeing that this Slade was a monster, called Doctor Ikon and captured evil Deathstroke. He was then detained by this world's Dr. Villain where he was put under study. However, he was able to break out shortly afterward and confronted the other Slade. The two fought each other to a standstill and critically injured each other and damaged their suits. After a brief conversation, Prime Earth Slade knocked over the Dark Multiverse Slade and broke his suit. Slade was about to kill evil Deathstroke, but pitied him, so he decided not to. Evil Slade used this opportunity to stab Slade with a special Ikon knife, causing him to collapse. However, before evil Slade could finish him off, the strain of the battle, his wounds and his cancer caused his heart to fail and he died.

Powers

  • Enhanced Brain Activity: Slade volunteered for an experimental procedure that activated a dormant metagene, which evolved his brain. This greatly enhanced Slade's mental capacity, as well as allows him to access his brain functions on a celluar level, granting him enhanced physical attributes.
    • Accelerated Healing: Deathstroke possesses a greatly accelerated healing rate. His rapid healing clots blood in seconds and seals wounds in minutes. The time it takes for full healing depends upon the wound, ranging from seconds to hours, depending on the level of injury. Deathstroke can heal quick enough to allow him to survive from fatal wounds, such as being impaled by a sword.
      • Toxic Immunity: Deathstroke's regenerative healing provides him with a enhanced immunity to toxins. When exposed to a dangerous paralyzation toxin, it only slowed Slade from superhuman levels, to that of a normal human, rather than instantly paralyze him.
    • Enhanced Senses: Deathstroke's senses are far more heightened than those of a normal human. While temporarily blinded, Deathstroke was able to easily maneuver around a large complex, due to his heightened senses.
    • Superhuman Agility: Deathstroke's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are enhanced to superhuman levels.
    • Superhuman Durability: Deathstroke is capable of withstanding high amounts of physical damage and sustain little, to no injury. He was even able to withstand hits from vastly stronger foes.

    • Superhuman Speed: Deathstroke is capable of moving at speeds greater than the finest human athlete. Even the Flash considers Deathstroke to be fast.
    • Superhuman Stamina: Deathstroke can exert himself for hours, while wearing a heavy body armor, without tiring easily.
    • Superhuman Strength: Deathstroke's natural strength has been augmented to superhuman levels. He is strong enough to easily snap a sword in half, as well as casually overpower normal humans and lift and throw a large piece of concrete.
