I am not sure if I should take it as somekind of damage that I've grown so used to strange designs of various gods and monsters from Azzarello's WW run that makes me think this guy looks absolutely bland. I mean, this is supposed to be Slade's biggest challenge yet in the New 52 and all he gets is a big guy with some thornevines crawling up his arm?

@outside_85: I loved the weird designs that were in Azzarello's run, it really made me think like they could be from a urban fantasy or vertigo book.

Exactly, and that line of thinking leap over into Batwoman with that slight glimpse of the Titan before she took a human form.

This however... I assume this guy is going to be dead in a short amount of time so I doubt it will matter, but still; what an uninspired piece of design.

@outside_85: Poseidon in the recent Wonder Woman issue was also super generic.

I love the chemistry, and I did not know slade was so young looking. Last issue was the first time I saw him without a mask in new 52. Lastly I want superman to regain the beard. I never found beards to be all that, but when he came back after fighting brainiac he was looking like a real superman.

"Fifty Shades of Slade." Really, that's the name of this annual's main story? You couldn't think of a better or more tasteful pun than a Fifty Shades one? Also I do kind of agree that Lapeus doesn't look as uniquely designed as the Greek Gods and monsters in Azzarello's Wonder Woman run, but it does at least have an epic mythological feel to it. Suited with the action and violence this series dishes out in spades.

Suppose thats what you get when you put generic artists on a book.

Tbh he's a titian that literally just got released from imprisonment.

The Olympians were around to watch mankind and update there style. He wasn't.

That's why he looks like a classical monster from Greek mythology.

It'd be ridiculous if he came out and right away was wearing a backpack with headphones, and chain links running down a pair of skinny jeans.

You guys complain when it's no reason to a lot of times.

Daniels art is perfection and this story has been pretty good so far. Definitely an improvement on the last DS series. But Daniels doesn't know how to write a fight. The Slade vs batman fight had a copout ending, and the wonder woman vs Slade fight was badly done. Slade barely fought back and took way too much crap from wonder woman. Hopefully Daniels can make the future fight scenes better. Looks good so far.

Also, who cares about the title. Its one issue

@justice_teen: He got de-aged at the begging of this run, before that he looked like the grissled veteran with an eye patch like most of us were used too.

I never thought I'd ever see the day where a Fifty Shades pun showed up in a Deathstroke comic...

BTW the titans are not more powerful than the olympians, that is why Zeus managed to defeat/kill them all.

The titans were always consider stronger. In fact Zeus won because he had help from other titans, magical weapons made by the cyclops, and other mythical creatures. Had it just been the gods vs the titans than the gods would have lost.

@lvenger: LMAO are you seriously complaining about the "tastefulness" of a pun in the title when this is one of the most gore-filled mainstream comics. Get ya priorities straight.
