A guide to all versions of Deathstroke the Terminator

Classic Deathstroke

The original Deathstroke the Terminator started off just being called "The Terminator" until the movie of the same name. He wore spandex and chain mail. His iconic weapon besides the sword was his energy lance. As a person he was primarily just a hired gun, and the best, but he also had his own story beyond an origin.

Teen Titans- Slade

This version of Deathstroke had his name reduced to "Slade" for being on a children's show. It's the first time his mask became a helmet, and his arsenal is reduced to a retractable Bo staff. There is less orange to the suit and replaced with metal plates. As a character he acted like an evil mastermind.
