Er... When did Slade EVER have the muscle to go toe-to-toe with Diana?

He's gone toe-to-toe with the entire Titans roster at once, so he's not necessarily a pushover. If he's got the strength of 20 men, he's got the strength to knock her about the place, but there's nothing in that little sequence that suggested she was particularly hurt by his blows, except that first one.

And I found it amusing that her major problem was not killing him...

He fought the New Teen Titans in one of their first, non-team-co-ordinated combat, so was able to take advantage of their lack of familiarity to score points (and had the first Ravager to assist too). He didn't confront most of them in direct combat after that, prefering to act through less obvious means (cf, The Judas Contract). He can take down Nightwing (though they know each other well so it's tough) and was sort of in a deadlock against Cass as Batgirl, which seems improbable (She's good, REALLY good, but he IS operating with superstrength, speed and combat awareness). I can see him being a fairly good match for Diana, except as regards speed, where she should be MUCH faster than he is.

Er......he really didn't go toe-to-toe with her. She have him one solid punch and it was over after a lot of acrobatics. And she even noted his best blows weren't able to hurt her. It's hardly that she was nerfed and more that she wasn't really bothered by him and once she decided to end it, it was all over.

Two things:

1. This shouldn't even be a contest, right? Isn't Wonder Woman several orders of magnitude tougher than Deathstroke?

2. Are people with total self-confidence totally immune to the lasso?

From: [personal profile] icon_uk
1) Yes she is

2) It depends, it's not really self-assurance, it's self awareness. Slade has never had any illusions about his work, he's been a soldier, he is a killer, he has his own unbreakable code of honour, and is fully aware of the moral ramifications of that, he just isn't bothered by it. So being confronted with the truth about himself probably wouldn't be that big a deal, because he's never lied to himself about it.

Agreed. She slugs it out with Clark every two years and is able to match him... Slade does not bring that much to the table.

And Slade is FASTER than Diana?

From: [personal profile] halialkers
The one way to redeem this might be a rare aversion of how in superhero comics punches to the face never create punch-drunkenness and that the first hit, when it surprised her, left her disoriented enough that Deathstroke's speed mattered more than it should have because she hadn't recovered until she does with the one-punch hit.

2) Not really. Rather, him knowing who he is means he won't get much of a mental issue with it, but he'd still have to say the truth and it wouldn't let him take it off.

1) Not to mention faster.

Um...WHAT? Is this Pre-Crisis Wonder Woman or some sort of nerfed version. She's gotten punched by collossi and metahumans several magnitudes above deathstroke and not been "rung". Plus she has to win with a nut-strike?

Didn't look as if he even started bruising him, but he was bouncing her around with leverage and precise strikes. She probably could've just outlasted him, but as she pointed out, time was of the essence and she needed to take him out quickly.

Heck, Slade was possibly just trying to delay her rather then hoping he could actually kill her.

Might i suggest this is an occasion for our much neglected "theme: barefoot asskicking" tag? Also, I can't tell if that's really what the TKO shot was, but we also have a "in-joke: inna nertz" tag. :D

The art's kinda weird, huh? For w/e reason I want to like it too but it just soo weird looking at times.

I can't help but crack up at that panel where she first get's hit. Combined with the "KRACK" makes it look like he just snapped her neck with that punch. I kinda like how she looks in the final page, though.

I'm with what other people have said; it's a nice fight, but Diana routinely spars with Superman. This fight should have ended with Diana just looking annoyed for a minute, then slapping Deathstroke across the face.

Now, if this were Black Canary fighting Deathstroke...

Depends on how much you interpret the punch to the head coming as a surprise. Most of the time that means nothing in superhero comics, admittedly, but there must come a point where hits from Mongul and Darkseid to the head create risk of super-pugilism.

I just said it came as a surprise. Surely a golem with the power of multiple Gods would be able to adjust for that a lot faster than a regular human would. Deathstroke effectively suckerpunched her and refused thereafter to get in range of a good solid hit until she got him and broke two or three of his ribs.

No, it doesn't. An ordinary guy punching Wondy in the face should have all the effect of a ordinary guy punching a brick wall in the face; it doesn't matter how much you take the brick wall by surprise, you'll still just get a busted hand.

Guy's got the strength of 20 men and regenerates. I didn't say it'd surprise her *long* and looking at it it really didn't. Sometimes you really *can* get the jump on someone that in any ordinary occasion would kick the shit out of you.

Note that the first hit is described as hurting her, but by the time he knocks her over she's all "I can take the worst this guy can do no problem."

This is when they started trying to integrate Wondy into the DCU more after the Pérez stuff was kind of its own thing. It was pretty ambiguous what the modern Wondy's power level was for a while. A few years after this was when Byrne started making a point of her being near Superman's strength level (which is itself variable).

Deathstroke (hurr hurr, it says 'stroke'): "Try and stop me!"

Wondy: "I'll use my Lasso of Truth to inform you about the dangers of contracting and spreading H.I.V.! I want you to see the truth of what you are!"

Deathstroke (throwing lasso off) "Sorry, princess. I'm immune. I already know I'm infected, so I don't care!" (WHACK!)
