Normally taking the appearance of a sword, it has the ability to change and morph its shape on the users command.


    Created by the God of the Forge to honor a final will and testament of his late brother. Hephaestus crafted a mighty blade within his quarry in order to honor that deal at a later date, when time came to honor the fallen god's last request. He would offer the battlement, along with an extravagant sum in gold, to the worlds deadliest assassin in return for the disposal of an ancient evil.

Once on the island of the Amazons, where the remains of the slumbering titan lay across their land, a chain of events lead to the release of the baleful old god and his armies whom immediately begin slaughtering his watchers.

    Deathstroke would fight his way across Themyscira both through friend and foe alike while being guided by the divine arsenal in a box, all the while learning what else the weapon could do with time and practice. Both heroes Wonder Woman and Superman did battle with various disasters.

    Slade would fulfill his contract with the god who deceived him into unleashing hell on earth. While in heated battle with the tyrannical divine entity, the sword would cross with Lapetus's spear which contained the soul of his sibling titan within it. Exploiting this weakness to enrage the hateful immortal, Deathstroke shattered his companions essence when he cleaved his weapon in two.

    Sending the mad numen into a blind frenzy in which Wilson used as the opportunity to cleave his heart using the very weapon forged to kill him and his kind. The contract completed, Hephaestus appeared before everyone present to award his assassin for his efforts while taking back his creation.
