"Reggie [Hudlin] was busy working on a film; I wanted him to co-write the issue for me. Issue 11 of Deathstroke is an anti-violence issue, and it concerns the gun violence going on in Chicago. Actually, that's the title of the story, it's just 'Chicago.' It's A Very Special Episode of Deathstroke." -- Christopher J. Priest

Part of me's wondering if the fake Deathstroke's identity isn't a bit of a pun on " Prieststroke ".

If I'd had any sense of the term "Prieststroke" as a thing before your post I might agree more strongly. Is that a commonly used term?

Christopher Priest has used it to describe his take on the character: " PriestStroke, Slade The Deathstroke, is not about violence. It is about a man; an exploration of a lost humanity. ", and it's been picked up in the occasional fan discussion of the series.

He appeared halfway through this issue, and then reverted back to Jack Ryder.

Killers are gonna kill, maybe, but it's easier to kill people, and kill more people, and from a distance and faster, with a gun, especially a semi-automatic or an assault rifle. Things are much harder for a sniper, particularly, if that sniper has to use a knife or unarmed martial arts.

Yeah, the "Gun's don't kill people, people kill people" argument is always followed in my head by "But guns make it much, much easier to kill large numbers of people in almost no time at all"
