Deathstroke, as I see him, and as Marv Wolfman and Geoff Johns wrote him, is a human being once removed from his humanity, in the same sense of a first cousin once-removed. There is a barrier between Slade Wilson and the human condition that Wilson is either afraid to traverse or barred from traversing. As powerful a man as he is, he simply cannot hug his children. And that’s basically what this entire storyline is about: the world, if not the universe, threatened with extinction because this man can’t hug his kids. -- Christopher J. Priest

ok... since when can Joey Fly...

or is he possessing his boyfriend's body?

I kinda sympathize with him... and I want him to be better... does that make sense? Deathstroke has always had a code... there are hints of that in his comic... but its hard to reconcile that with the asshole dad... is it weird I kinda want him to succeed in saving Grant....

or maybe... saving Grant means Rose doesn't exist, and he has to choose between the son who made his choices and the daughter who still has a chance....

But Wally has years more experience using superspeed, he's fought other speedsters like Zoom before, he knows how to use superspeed for more creative tricks that Deathstroke could blow himself up trying.

I mean it's not like Wally's ever stolen speed from someone before and trapped them as a living statue.

That was our Wally. This guy? This guy seems like Wally reset to the point when he first picked up the mantle. Like a young adult, not the grown man many of us watched him become.

Really pleasantly surprised by that "new suit is a Reverse Flash suit" twist! Again, one of those cheesy plot points that Priest somehow makes work. DC should just import all the wacky G/S Age villains through him like conversion software.
