I think you typed your HTML into the Rich Text window

And square brackets don't work in DW's HTML as far as I know.

Your tags are broken, btw.

This does sound interesting, and just because the theme song to "Garfield and Friends" immediately started playing in my head. I can't imagine Priest's Deathstroke being very good at playing a cape.

The erection bit was worth this mention. Interesting correlation.

Y'know, this whole idea of Deathstroke reforming reminds me of the current Kingpin book.

What I like about Priest is that his arc ideas shouldn't have worked (Deathstroke vs. Batman could've been a cliched throwdown; Blind Deathstroke should've raised a jump-the-shark alarm; now this), and yet the plot, pacing and dialogue carry every time. This whole series has been a clinic on how execution can make even the most outlandish story readable.

Gonna have to dock points for them forearm scales, though. I thought we as a people moved on from that tragedy by swapping that out with Slade's modern digital-hexagon patterning.

Yeah, this series overall seems to be benefiting - much like a lot of Rebirth outside the Batman titles, which were mostly stronger under Snyder, I found - from having decent writers. Compare and contrast this with the prior Deathstroke series and the difference is night and day. This current series almost makes up for the years of mindless idiocy applied to Slade following Identity Crisis.

Aside from the image making me think of the Royal Flush Gang, one has to wonder why he doesn't just adopt a NEW identity.

Weirdly it reminds me a little of Heartstring, the Jericho analogue from Project Youngblood, the Teen Titans riff from the DNAgents (when they did a mutual not-a-crossover-with-each-other)

Or Ricochet, the alt identity that Spider-Man adopted for a while and then someone took over.

Personally, it reminds me an awful lot of Grifter.

Wait, that wasn't Grifter?

Grifter wouldn't really have a problem if he sneezed in his mask (It's be disgusting, but not a problem)... Jericho probably would.

No, I think in the issue the month before, Kid Flash left the team.

I can deal with the new color scheme, but is the cape really necessary?
