    This page is for the 2nd Ravager, William Walsh.


    Bill Walsh was in the elite military school, Camp Washington, partnered with Slade Wilson. He washes out of Camp Washington and blames it on Slade. Also Bill thought that Slade had stolen his chance with Addie Kane, who was a an instructor at Camp Washington, who went on to be Slade's wife. Bill spends his life getting back at Slade. First by kidnapping his youngest son, Joseph Wilson, as the Jackal, and slits young Joey's throat, making him mute. He later recruits Slade's older son, Grant Wilson, into the H.I.V.E. organization which injects him with a serum that gives him super powers, but eventually kills him (a side-effect that Bill knew would happen).

Walsh is ordered to blow up Washington, D.C. by his new employer General Kaddam of Qurac, but Walsh prolongs the mission in order to engage Deathstroke, which had been his plan when for the entire time when hired by Kaddam, but it turns into a fatal mistake.
