I was minding my business, and Marie Javin from DC e-mailed me about Deathstroke. I went "Deathstroke?" It took me a minute but I had to go, "Isn't he that guy who fights the Teen Titans?" She goes, "Yeah." And I go, "He has his own book?" "For a long time now." I knew nothing. So I said, "Send me some of that and I'll look at it." I looked at The New 52 stuff and I looked at some stuff prior to and I got in contact with her and said, "I appreciate you thinking of me, but I can't write this."

And she said, "We're doing this 'Rebirth' thing, so if you were writing Deathstroke what would you do?" And I said that it would be interesting to me if I could do something introspective. Kind of "behind the mask," you know? Get inside his head a little and kind of treat him the way we treated Black Panther in a lot of ways, where people are speculating about his motives and what he's going to do, and he's always one step ahead of everybody.

I think Slade's outfit is too busy, might be better if he ditched the cape.

too busy?
a) it is black and white, look at his old costume by comparison
b) look at the guy in your avatar, HIS outfits are too busy!

also, did Slade unleash the murderbots himself?
(also, I like Slade and Light sitting around talking over coffee. get 2 heroes in the same room and they start fighting. 2 villains? they sit down and chat.)

Is Dr. Light a rapist in this continuity?

He's not. In fact I never thought he was a super Villian either. But I guess rebirth retcon some of the new 52 things.

That's a bit puzzling to me. Pretty sure Dr. Light has almost always been a supervillain.

I think the way they explain it is he was a villain, he reformed and had a family, then he died and became more powerful, tried to be a hero, then went back to villainy.

By the looks of it now, he isn't a rapist in Rebirth. If he was, he'd be trying to remind everyone of how much he loves rape every 5 seconds or so. If anything, we're back to how the guy was before he was made such a huge joke that Identity Crisis had to happen.

Doctor Light is villain enough to have an in with the (Secret) Society (of Super Villains), but his Trinity War " happily married man who became a ' hero ' and died " take is alluded to.

I love Priest's " Yes, continuity happened, but the character's this way now because that's the story I'm writing " approach to Rebirth!DC.

Given what a waste it was rebooting Dr. Light as a hero Johns immediately killed off, I'm perfectly happy to ignore that plot point. Provided we never see Dr. Rape again, anyway.

Slade needs his god damn twenty-four cents, Ambassador.

Also, looking forward to how Priest tackles the Secret Society! Forever Evil's Society felt like just another assemblage of villains. This one seems like a "Barksdale Organization does Robert's Rules of Order" kind of thing. And if it isn't, I wish it would.

Couple things

Where's the female Dr Light?

Deathstroke using the word tired seems ooc.

The guy who looks to be about to hug Jericho has Mr. Fantastic arms.

"Still a virgin?"
