Ulysses just appeared and we will get Odysseus? Thank God that man hasn't any other names because DC is destined to take all of them this year.

That costume design is soooooo much better than in the first New 52 volume of Deathstroke.

Wow that sounds pretty awesome. I like how his costume has changed. He seems to be going for more light weight now.

@tommythehitman: He should wear different outfits depending on the mission. That way, people that like the new or old will be happy.

@g_man: And it would make more sense. Different missions call for different gear. I like that idea a lot.

As long this is better than Liefeld than I will try to read this comics every month. I don't expect Eisner Award quality of story. Just summer popcorn block buster flick

@g_man

It would be cool if he had some kind of... shape shift... stealth suit armor? And at one point he's just cycling through costumes and for one panel we see his classic costume. Would be kinda cool and come up with some interesting Mercenary costumes for him.

Also is it just me or does Deathstroke look a bit like a pirate on that cover?

Erased from his memory? So, he's about to go Jason Bourne on someone's ass?

Agreed. That costume is kick-ass!

Look its the Cult of Starro ;o

Since when does that guy need a cult worshiping him? His main power is mind-control, for cryin' out loud!

He always did that. Standard part of his outfit prior to the New 52 was an ammo belt across his chest, buccaneer boots and the cloth mask with the tie-strings hanging out behind his head.

I was thinking more of something like an Atlantean cult worshipping Starro and planning his resurrection.

I hope his allies are pre 52 characters like Bronze tiger, vigilante, shrike, David Cain, Sportsmaster(the young justice version), Catman, Richard Dragon, constantine Drakon, grant wilson, Archer braun, KGbeast, Prometheus or tiger.

@adamtrmm: he has very good ideas and concepts but sometimes the execution is not all there. But to me, his art makes up for any shortcomings in his writing.

@iaconpoint:

He is an exceptional artist, I agree. What did he write though?

@adamtrmm: pre-new 52 Batman and new 52 Detective for its first year. Lotsa noirish crime-style stuff.
