    [EDIT - Addendum: Maybe Slade won't be a fun protagonist for the pull list afterall. Just read the newly revealed backstory death count he was responsible for in this week's Batman #28, The War of Jokes and Riddles, and it is disgusting. He was always bad but he was never this thug-for-hire mentality, tied into Gotham lore, or responsible for such irredeemable/reprehensible sloppy slaughtering. He seems retcontaminated now. Guess'll read Aquaman's next solicit...]

To be fair the writer on the Batman comic doesn't seem to be aware that the Deathstroke Christopher Priest is writing and favors is the very one that Marv Wolfman and George Perez created and what readers came to like, he is quite different to the reprehensible bandit seem roaming the DCU these last years and a thoughtless massacre such as the one Batman claims is way way out of step with the 'Rebirth' ethic and what Priest is writing him to be. Ruthlessly efficient and cold he may be, but unprofessional and careless enough to fight Deadshot in such a manner and at the needless expense of ordinary everyday pedestrians is as far away from the spirit of Wolfman and Priest's professionally minded Slade Wilson as I can imagine...
