Comparing to comic logic or real world?

(Hint, really, everyone uses most of their brain, just not all at once all the time. The 10% thing was a one off quote from Einstein that was never meant to be taken seriously.)

Maybe he had a stroke, or a brain tumor, or something, so he lost function in 10% of his brain?

Lol if he only uses 90% of his brain he should be retarded.

Back when he was created, it was widely belived that we only used 10% of our brain. The writers thought " oh, we'll make him use 90% because he's enhanced"

Pretty much he can process info a lot faster than normal humans

The whole we only use 10% thing is a myth.

For some reason it's popular in fiction for writers to say that normal humans only use 10% of their brains. Even today it happens in shows when they have instant access to the internet to fact check their shit.

I quote

"He has the capacity to use up to 90 percent of his brain at any one time, making him a tactical genius, adept at turning his opponents' own abilities against them"

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deathstroke

so that means he should be smarter than Lex Luthor, Batman and pretty much every human in the DC universe

yet he choses to be an assassin

this doesn't make any sense

Plenty of fictional universes use modern myths as a foundation of one sort or another in building their worlds. It was a common myth that people only use 10% of their cerebral capacity; in fact we use virtually all of it. However, we do not use every part of our brains at once, as in every given moment, otherwise we'd probably be having a seizure-induced meltdown.

Taking this into account, it can be fairly easy to interpret the intended scope of Deathstroke's abilities, namely that his raw brainpower possesses a 900% superior mental capacity than normal humans. At least, that's what I get from it. He can think, calculate, theorize, deduct, ascertain, reason, etc. nine times faster than any natural human. His reflexes and response time are nine times faster. His senses are nine times sharper and astute. It kinda goes on from there (makes it more ironic that he's one-eyed)

Because people are stupid and take it as gospel. They can't even tell the difference between Clark Kent and Supes so it makes sense Slade is smarter among the stupider DC Earth people

still, he can use his brainpower to search a remedy against cancer or something

I always took it as their way of saying that his brain works 9 times faster than that of a normal person's.

It's just code or a cool way of saying he thinks faster on the fly or in the heat of battle than the average person
