Comics books are often likened to the modern mythology. Filled with epic adventures and engaging heroes, they are the narratives that shape the culture of the world. The characters of Spider-Man, Wonder Woman, Invincible, and many others have become some of the most recognizable images around the globe. Each week, artists create tremendous covers that celebrate these valiant icons, engaging readers new and old with their work.

It’s official: Slade Wilson, a.k.a. Deathstroke the Terminator, is joining DC’s evergrowing cinematic universe – and his movie design appears to be inspired by his costume in Batman: Arkham Origins. Who has DC and WB cast for the role? We have no idea, but we do know we’re seriously excited to see DC’s deadly mercenary on the big screen! We strongly encourage reading some of Slade’s stories – especially the Judas Contract and The Trial of the Terminator, which are in Tales of the Teen Titans – but for now, here are a few things everyone should know about Deathstroke.

Oh, and just so you know, Deathstroke – who was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez – made his debut in 1980 (New Teen Titans #2); Deadpool – who was created by Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza – made his debut in 1991 (The New Mutants #98).
