Like seriously. Deathstroke is a character who can still be hurt by the likes of Batman.

How does he even stand a chance against characters such as kid flash who can just blizt him to hell and back, Star fire who has multi building lvl ap, raven who is a demon and can probably use some magic hax and in some interactions super boy.

Even with prep I don’t see how he would win without some extreme pis

I believe it’s because he prepares but he’s also always moving as fast as possible and even then he still gets hit pretty regularly. There’s still a dash of PIS though, mostly because of the speed characters

@kidolio: prep isn’t helping deathstroke beat kid flash, raven and star fire.

Because at the end of the day they are a bunch of kids and he is a cold blooded killer.

He can’t. Starfire can solo him, so can Raven and several others

Because Slade was a enhanced super soldier with decades of experience under his belt in some of the worst conditions imaginable, and managed to not only survive but thrive in them.

When you read most of his showings against the Titans, he isn't going gun ho and just swinging for the fences: he usually plans beforehand and when he is in combat, he's consistently moving around, always looking for weak spots while dodging whatever is chucked at him by the skin of his teeth. He's not casually tanking their moves because he himself KNOWS that they are stronger than him and could take him out quite quickly. He usually needs to pull every bit of his gear out.

Other reason is, well, they were kids when they first had their encounters. Sorry to say, but you can be the strongest dude on Earth but if you don't have the experience or the mindset to use your powers, then you will not be close to what you can do usually. They didn't have a ton of experience, they definitely didn't have the knowledge that they would later get about how their powers worked, and as a result Slade could get through them by exposing those lacks in battle.

Of course, him beating up the JLA in Cry for Justice was huge PIS, but most of his showings are less plot related excuses, and more based around Slade's superior knowledge and intelligence about his own capabilities and how to make the best out of them. Not getting that and relying only on power levels on paper is the problem.

@stomps: The thread is asking if that very plot is stupid or not.

He's a massively better strategist and planner than any of them. He's smarter too, and more skilled in combat than any of them. He's also totally ruthless, so he never lets his emotions cloud his judgement.

@dmnb2wavy: Not exactly, it’s more like he scares them and he finds them all predictable.

Theses reasons makes absolutely no sense considering being more skilled and a better planer does not help you against someone who can blow through cities if angered enough, someone run faster than light or lightning and someone who can a just bfr on the whim.
