    Rose Wilson's first appearance
    Rose Wilson's first appearance

    A few years after his divorce from Adeline Kane, Slade Wilson - the mercenary known as Deathstroke, The Terminator - took a search-and-rescue mission under contract. Slade met Lillian "Sweet-Lilli" Worth, an Oriental clan princess whose life fell in ruins after her kingdom was destroyed by a war in the Far East. It was Slade's mission to bring Lilli from war-torn Cambodia to Thailand, where she would have relative freedom.

    The mission was successful; During the journey, Slade and Lillian became lovers as well. Slade and Lillian remained in contact, embarking an an on/off love affair whenever their paths crossed. During one of their trysts, Slade impregnated Lillian, who later gave birth to Rose Worth. Lillian kept Rose a secret from Slade, rationalizing it was in the child's best interest to do so. Lillian eventually settled outside New York City, where she established a brothel and lived in luxury. Despite the environment, Rose was raised with other children her age and was schooled by private tutors. She not only received a happy childhood, but was also taught how to defend herself.


    Rose Wilson was created by Marv Wolfman and Art Nichols.

    When Slade was injured and on the lam from the law, Lillian took him in and nursed his wounds. It was at this time that Wintergreen met 14-year-old Rose Worth and suspected Slade was her father. A new man assuming the identity of the Ravager (who was later revealed to be Slade's half-brother, Wade DeFarge) was hunting down Slade's friends and loved ones, killing his informant Maurice, and his tech supplier, Squirrel. Ravager abducted Rose Worth when he discovered her connection to Slade. As Ravager tortured Rose, he also revealed to her that Slade Wilson was her father. Meanwhile, Wintergreen and Lillian launched a rescue attempt. Eventually, Lillian and Wintergreen reached their quarry in the snow-covered wilderness in the Adirondack Mountains.

    To save her daughter, Lillian attempted to run over Ravager in a Jeep – but her Jeep careened off a cliff and exploded. Lilian was presumed dead, but her body was never recovered. Wintergreen and Rose were able to elude Ravager and escaped. Slade thought it would be best if Rose had nothing to do with him, since he felt he brought about the death of both his sons. Fearing he would not be a good father, he left Rose primarily in the care of Wintergreen, who was prepared to adopt the girl. Slade, however, had already made arrangements with Sarge Steel to place her in protective custody with the Titans. Sarge Steel - who oversaw the group during this stage - saw potential in the young girl, although he also found her to be prone to violence and a bit unstable.

    In the Post-Flashpoint reality, Rose Wilson is the child of Adeline Kane and not Lillian Worth. She first works for an organization called N.O.W.H.E.R.E that monitored meta-human teens around the globe. She is assigned the task of handler to N.O.W.H.E.R.E's biggest asset, Superboy, and entrusted with the responsibility of bringing him down if he ever goes out of control.

    She has since left N.O.W.H.E.R.E. after being allowed out of Harvest's control as payment to Deathstroke for completing a contract. Since then she has been seen while she's on the search for a contract in the pages of Red Hood and the Outlaws. More recently she has been seen on the pages of Deathstroke under new writer Tony S. Daniel. The series has revolved Slades family. Along with his father and son, Jericho, Rose also joins the mix. Slade tracks her down in Gotham where it is revealed that she is with Jericho. They go in search for lost memories and vengeance against their grandfather who has superpowers of his own and is trying to lead the league of assassins. The arc ends with Slade's father seemingly defeated and Slade wakes up from a knockout induced by Jericho.

As she grew up, she studied her father's skills and tactics, and also trained under Nightwing. She works as a bouncer and takes jobs stopping other mercenaries from completing their contracts. Recently, she had to team up with Slade and Wintergreen to find out who put a hit out on her.

    Joining the Titans / Being a Nanny

    During her brief time on the team, Rose befriended some of the younger members of the team. During a training exercise with Damage, Rose was injured and almost fell into a coma. As Damage brought her to the hospital, her meta-gene powers kicked in. Rose had an extensive precognitive vision where she saw her father's future. She appeared as an astral form, witnessing her Deathstroke's future unfold – a future where he was caught in a never-ending drudge match with Hawkman. During this jaunt, Rose was able to project her astral form and inhabit the body of someone in the future, similar to her brother Jericho's ability. Before Rose could explore these abilities further, she recovered at the hospital – thus ending her dream vision.

    Still reeling over the death of her mother, Rose became sullen and somewhat reckless. Fellow Titan Donna Troy tried to reach out to her, but Rose rejected her. Fellow Titan Impulse developed a crush on Rose but she was oblivious to his affections. Rose was not a Titan for very long; She eventually left the team to embark on her own. It is believed she stayed with her mother's friend.

    Rose later aided the Titans again during the Technis Imperative conflict, which involved the Justice League as well as all Titans, past and present. The two teams eventually worked together to save the earth and former Titans teammate, Cyborg. During that incident she vocally challenges New God Big Barda, as the Titans and Justice League had come to blows. Barda seems more amused than concerned over Rose and their potential fight is neutralized by other forces. When the Titans later threw a surprise party for Donna Troy, Rose was seen attending the party. Roy Harper offered Rose a job as nanny to his daughter Lian. She accepted and served as Lian's nanny for a time.

    Ravager: the Teen Titans' new Threat

    The Madison family adopted Rose and she enjoys a short period of a normal life until Wade DeFarge kills off the Madisons and attempts to collect a bounty on Rose. The Teen Titans arrived to stop him and protect Rose, until everyone was gassed by Deathstroke. Rose wakes to find herself in Deathstroke's lair where he offers to train her. She accepts to find her first task is to kill Wade. She does without mercy and takes his name, Ravager. Little does she know that Slade has drugged her with the same serum that gives him his powers. Also unknown to Rose is that her father had hired Wade DeFrage to kill her adoptive family in an attempt to draw her closer.

    After a mission against the Church of Brother Blood, the Teen Titans, and Jericho, Deathstroke doubts Rose's readiness to work with him and plans to disown her when she hesitated and unable to kill her half-brother (when he was possessed in Beast Boy's body). To prove her loyalty, she gouges out her left eye to match her father's.

    Nightwing Trains Rose

    She later appears in a fight against Batgirl, only to suffer defeat. When she recovered, Deathstroke places her under the tutelage of Nightwing, who leads Slade to believe that he has given up being a hero. Nightwing agrees to train Rose, while surreptitiously teaching her the values of heroism. Although Rose develops a crush on Nightwing in the training progress, the attraction seemed entirely one-sided. In order to test Grayson's loyalty, Deathstroke replaces Rose's missing eye with one carved from Kryptonite and pits her and Nightwing against Superman. Rose attempts to kill Superman, but Nightwing uses Superman's concern for safety of not only the bystanders, but Rose herself as her final lesson on altruism. Nightwing then agrees with Deathstroke to stay away from Rose on the condition that Bludhaven remained off-limits to the latest incarnation of the Secret Society, of which Slade is a charter member.

    Following the bombing of Bludhaven on Deathstroke's orders in Infinite Crisis, Nightwing returns and informs Rose that the Kryptonite her father implanted in her eye-socket is not just a danger to Kryptonians, but it is also carcinogenic and lethal to humans under extended periods of prolonged exposure. Enraged and heartbroken that her father would endanger her life so dismissively, and emboldened by Nightwing's tutelage, Rose breaks all ties with her father and runs away.

    Free From Deathstroke's Influence

    Since that time, Rose has broken free of her father's control with some help from her mentor. After the serum ran its course, Rose returned to sanity and was granted membership in the Teen Titans at the request of Nightwing. Once a dangerous and unstable adversary, it may be some time before all her teammates fully trust her. While Rose initially clashed with Wonder Girl, she also found a trusted friend in new member, Kid Devil.

    Afraid to lose her spot on the Teen Titans with other members coming back she took her clothes off and tried to seduce Tim Drake. He quickly overthrew her and tied her to the bed. Kid Devil walks in and yells, "Hot Damn". After Raven successfully brought back Jericho by using one of Brother Blood's resurrection rituals, he was cleansed of any evil influence. At this time, Jericho rejoined the Teen Titan and met his sister, Rose, for the first time.

    Later, Rose and Joseph fly to New York City to have lunch with Nightwing, after which they go to the original Titans Island and discover that someone has built a demented version of the original tower there. Upon entering, they find that their father has kidnapped their teammates, all in order to gain control of them again. Rose and Joey rescue Robin from Slade and Batgirl, during of which Rose finally got her rematch with Cassandra Cain. Rose and Joey both attempt to stop their father, but they are defeated and left at his mercy until Nightwing, Donna Troy, Duela Dent, Raven, Cyborg, Beast Boy and Bart Allen arrived.

    Following the death of her former teammate, Bart Allen, Rose attends his funeral alongside with the rest of the Teen Titans. At the present of Bart's wake, she slips off after a while, bored with the somber, reminiscent atmosphere, and invites Kid Devil to join her in skinny-dipping in the Titans' swimming pool.

    The Titans Tomorrow, a possible future of the current Titans team, arrive in the present to aid the Teen Titans against Starro-controlled villains. Ravager's future-self is absent from the group and it was revealed that she betrays the team (primarily Bart Allen and Kid Devil) at some point. Red Devil, the adult version of Kid Devil, and Rose are then sent to battle against Rampage and Livewire. Red Devil tries to convince Eddie to let her go during the fight, so that she does not manage to betray them in the future. Initially it appears that Eddie intends to do so, before betraying this older self in order to aid Rose. Later, the trio return to the Titan's Lair (the home of the original Teen Titans), where they meet Blue Beetle. There, Red Devil attacks him, claiming that he too cannot be trusted.

    Eddie, Rose, and Jaime find themselves surrounded by an army of Titans led by Lex Luthor, before they all battle against an invading army of Starros. Thanks in large part of Blue Beetle's powers, and Robin and Wonder Girl managing to supposedly alter Robin's future (and thus alter the future of the Titans as a whole), the army of Titans were apparently defeated. Ravager has aided Robin and Zachary Zatara to defeat a gang of metahumans assembled by Robin's wanna-be nemesis, Dodge. Her role was to infiltrate Dodge's gang in Gotham City as a newly hired assassin named Skill.

    She also teams up with Cassandra Cain (Batgirl) and Marque, who were searching for David Cain and Deathstroke. She put her issues aside when they tracked down a training compound of a female army (Cass's 'sisters') created by Cain and Deathstroke to 'cripple the meta-hero community'. They manage to fight them all, until Deathstroke decided to blow up the building. Ravager, Batgirl, and Marque survived, but his army did not. After that, Ravager leaves and continues the search for her father.

    Terror Titans

    Terror Titans
    Terror Titans

    Rose got to show where her loyalties stood when the Titans Tower got breached by the Terror Titans. The villainous team was sent by their leader The Clock King to retrieve the Titans but Ravager would not go down without a fight. Showing a great display of heart and fighting ability, Ravager was able to hold them long enough for Wendy Harris and Marvin White to escape Titans Tower before it blew up. It was believed that Ravager was dead when the rest of the Titans arrived back at the tower, but Robin was able to figure out a way that she could have escaped. Still unsure, the Titans went to meet the Clock King, and it was shown that Ravager, with a destroyed costume was following behind them in the shadows, proving that she still lived. Clock King, while they were fighting, offered her a spot on his team but she abruptly declined his offer.

    After taking down the first headquarters of the Terror Titans, Rose and the Teen Titans returned to Titans Tower to do repairs. While there, Rose overheard Cassandra and Tim talking about how they thought Rose was out of control (for the most part). Rose took this offensively and left the Teen Titans to join up with the Terror Titans much to the disdain of the other Terror Titans. She also has entered herself in the Dark Side Tournament though refuses to kill anyone, suggesting that she isn't all as bad as everyone wants to think. Thus far, she has proved to be one of the toughest combatants in the Dark Side Tournament and in the Terror Titans. However, upon fighting Static Shock, Rose failed in her attempt to stay in the Dark Side Tournament and was forced to resign (due to a bet with Clock King). As far as Rose becoming a full time villain or not, it is still unclear. Only time would tell if she would choose to continue to walk down that road or not.

    Rose then discovered that Clock King's intentions with the metahumans captured in the Dark Side Tournament were much worse than he originally let on. In her anger, she tried to attack him but was sent away by one of his time devices. Near the end of the issue, the Terror Titans attacked Rose when they heard of her intentions to kill Clock King. Rose bested the Terror Titans and was about to kill Disruptor when she was stopped by Star-Spangled Kid. As it turned out, Star-Spangled Kid was Miss Martian in disguise. Miss Martian freed the captured heroes from Clock King's mind control and the heroes went to attack the Terror Titans, leaving Rose. Rose had a brief conversation with Miss Martian before running off again. Miss Martian declared that Rose was too complicated to be pegged as good or evil.

    Rose would then go back to Clock King's lair, freeing Static Shock before confronting Clock King for one last battle. Although she nearly bested him, he managed to teleport away at the last minute, calling Rose "exquisite". Rose's whereabouts at this time are unknown.


    In the course of Deathtrap, Rose had returned to the Titans to help solve the problem concerning her brother, Jericho, who had since turned evil and was on a killing rampage. Rose inhaled a large amount of the inhalers she'd received from Clock King to help heighten her precognitive abilities, only to find that they pretty much made her high and hard to get around. She finds out that her brother is targeted for assassination by the new Vigilante. When She meets Vigilante, she makes a deal with him for not killing her brother. When Jericho was captured, Vigilante gouges his eyes out and leaves Rose enraged.

    Post Deathtrap

    After the events in Deathtrap, Rose returned to Titans Tower in San Fransisco with the rest of the gang. This was really controversial with the members of the Titans, being that Rose is such a loose cannon. Eddie really wanted her to stick around, but Rose continued to feel as if she wasn't wanted. She wasn't entirely sure what she wanted, either. She went through her three options: Track down Deathstroke, take care of her blind brother, or stick with the Titans. She and Wonder Girl had their usual conflicts however the main conflict at the time was when Rose and Bombshell went alone to do a prison transfer. Rose provoked Bombshell into attacking in order to test her to see if she was truly reformed and wanting to be a part of the team or just a traitor again. Seeing that Bombshell was reformed, Rose was about to take her sword out of her face only to have Wonder Girl fly in and freak out, as usual, assuming that Rose was going to kill Bombshell. It was later that Wonder Girl was corrected by Bombshell but Wonder Girl stood by her decision that Rose was still acting selfishly. In the end, Rose and Eddie stood on top of Titans Tower, discussing what would happen next. Rose asked Eddie to come with her explaining that they didn't belong there. Although it was clear he really wanted to go with her, he denied. Rose hopped on her motorcycle and drove off hoping to find her own place in the world stating..."I can spike on adrenaline inhalers and watch the future unfold yet I still can't see my own place in the world. The answer's out there somewhere, here's hoping I find it."

    Fresh Hell

    Rose leaves San Fransisco
    Rose leaves San Fransisco

    In Teen Titans #72, Rose appears in the back of the book in her own nine part Co-Feature. She's far away from San Fransisco at this point, having traveled somewhere cold--supposedly north. The co-feature starts out showing her breaking into a drug store to steal Epinephrine (or the adrenaline inhalers seen in Terror Titans). Wonder Girl pops up, only it's a hallucination Rose is having of her supposedly representing her conscience. Rose figures this out and after talking to...well herself...she goes on her merry way. She later wakes up having crashed her motorcycle in the snow somewhere and goes to a bar for refuge (food, water, etc). Once there, some of the locals (including a man named Archer) don't take kindly to her and smack her in the back of her head telling her to leave. Needless to say, she gets angry and defeats everyone in the bar. Before she can celebrate, she coughs up blood and passes out on the floor.

    She later wakes up in the basement of the bar which apparently doubles as a doctor's office. She is informed by Doc Barden that her addiction to epinephrine has seriously messed with most of her vital organs causing things such as her heart to stop pumping fluid out of her lungs. He also tells her that if she continues to do this drug her organs will begin to fail and she will die. It is later that Rose is introduced to a wealthy English business man of the town named Will Roades who pleads with her to stay in a cabin that he had prepared for her. The people now know that she is Ravager having gone through her bags while she was unconscious before. Rose reluctantly agrees and goes to the cabin to sleep. Meanwhile, Will calls some men on the phone (men dressed in assassin garb) and tells them to "kill her now."

    After a fight, Rose narrowly escapes by plunging into the icy cold water. The assassins soon are under the impression that she has died. Rose then begins to give up until she sees a vision of Megan (Miss Martian) urging her that she is stronger than this. Rose swims up and out of the water and begins her process of survival. Once seemingly back into shape, Rose goes to see why she was attacked and discovers that this town is actually a big black market of women slavery.

    The men promise women better lives only to sell them into prostitution and/or slavery. This process angers Rose, and she becomes determined to save the women currently there. She almost succeeds until the women realize that two girls are missing from the place in which they were kept. Rose goes out to find them only to come face to face with all of Will's thugs holding guns. Knowing she's outmatched, Rose isn't entirely sure what to do. And then Will begins to attack her, sadly her precognitive skills do not kick in and it is revealed that Rose was poisoned by Will and his goons when she was supposedly "at the doctor" there.

    Weeks later, Rose is held prisoner by Will. She was strapped to a table and being 'conditioned' by Doc Barden, who apologizes for his actions, Will tells Rose that he's impressed with her after escaping death by his men, trapped in frozen water for 'God knows how long', and surviving a good thrashing from himself. He reveals that he does not want to kill her but make her his own personal bodyguard. After hearing that, Rose spits on his faces, and he leaves the room. Barden also leaves, again apologizing for involvement. As both men were gone, Rose, still strapped to the table, blackouts until she has a glimpse of her father. All of a sudden, she builds up all the strength to break free from the straps. Then appearing weak, Rose crawls across the floor to the table where there is a needle and a bottle of adrenaline as she injects herself in order to save the helpless girls. Grabbing her motorcycle, Rose revs-up to catch a truck containing new prisoners, and manages to leap from the back to the front of the truck as she smashes the driver's window. The truck stops, the driver (Archer) crashes out, and the prisoners take control of the guards. Disappointed that Will wasn't in the truck, Rose asks Archer where he's hiding, but he does not tell her. After explaining her encounters since 'yesterday', Archer informs her that she was imprisoned for weeks. Angelport has been abandoned within weeks, except for her and Barden, and Will is gone. The driver then said that she'll never find him as he passes out and/or dies...leaving Rose without anything.

    Rose hunts down Will Roades
    Rose hunts down Will Roades

    Days later, Rose manages to trace Will in Arkhangelsk, Russia, where he's making a trade deal with an old friend. As she stands outside door and listening to their conversation, she simply plans to kick the door open and attack until she has an illusion of Robin (Tim Drake) giving her advice about her current actions. After a gun was fired, she goes ahead with her plan and Will orders everyone, especially his friend's men, to kill her. She manages to dodge every bullet coming at her and injures her attackers. As she gets closer to Will, he gets two of his slaves as of which is held at gunpoint. Calling Will a coward for foul play in, he shoots one in the head. Rose rushes for the girl's aid until she is grazed in the face by a bullet from one of the attackers. Feeling enraged for not saving the innocent girl, she wounds all of the men, except for Will. She feels that what happened to the girl wasn't her fault but that of Will and his men. After the slashing, she picks up the girl and takes her outside to find medical attention.

    Once at a hospital, the girl is put into the operating room as Rose worries for her condition. While waiting, Rose thinks about stealing some prescription drugs until a nurse walks in. A police officer arrives and asks her if she was called Rose and her hair was white. When she replied, the officer told her that Will Roades left a message for her (with a white rose) saying he wants to have a final showdown with her at a given location, and threatens to kill the remaining girls if she did not accept the challenge. When she arrives at the location, Will regales her of how she came into his operation since the beginning and thinks that the only reason she killed his men was through personal effrontery when he shot the girl. When questioned if it was true or not, Will has his men armed and prepared to shoot the girls if she lost. When Rose accepts the match, Will shoots her in the right shoulder and than points the gun to her head. At close range she disarms him, grabs the gun and shoots one of the armed guards. While she was trying to shoot the others, Will stabs her in the shoulder again and orders his men to kill the girls.

    Thinking that she has lost the battle as Will prepares to kill her, Rose sees one of the girls with a gun as the guards are dead. She dodges the final blow from Will and is now determine to win as she beats the living daylights out of him. When the fight finishes, Rose ties Will up taking him as her prisoner and frees the girls from slavery. When Rose was thinking about how she overcame her situation by questioning herself on the Teen Titans, her last hallucination was Kid Devil as he talked about how she able to win and how he misses the chance to be with her. Before Rose left for San Francisco, she checked in the hospital to see if the girl pulled through. Unfortunately, she died. From that moment Rose broke into the prescription drug room and stole some drugs. At the docks, Rose tells Will that she has finally figured out that she now wants to be in charge of her own decisions based on her own moral code. She picks Will up by his feet and dunks his head into the water, drowning him to death. After that she takes a dose of the stolen drugs and leaves.

    Father and Daughter against the Black Lanterns

    After the Co-Feature adventure, Ravager returns as she found Deathstroke. She attacks him in his home and for a little bit, she is being beaten by him while he is trying to tell her about the Black Lantern Corps. She doesn't believe him until the original Ravager, Grant Wilson, appears with the Black Lantern ring on. Grant attacks Deathstroke and attempts to put his head in the fireplace until Rose cuts him in half. They then team up to take down Deathstroke's dead family and acquaintances (Wintergreen, Wade, and Adeline) unsuccessfully.

    She then burns one of them and throws another in the flames she made from a busted gas pipe. The thrown in one screams and when she says, "So, they can feel pain huh." He replies by saying "Of course I can. After all we are related", and walks out revealing himself to really be Jericho. His eyes had grown back since Vigilante's attack, and he uses his powers to make the Black Lanterns destroy themselves.

    After the battle, Rose refuses to reconcile with her father, despite acknowledging her daughterly love for him. She also realizes that her mother may still be alive, as she was not among the attacking Black Lanterns.

    Following an adventure into Wyld's dimension, Static & Miss Martian leave the Titans while Bombshell and Aquagirl are lost undersea. Rose returns to the Teen Titans at Wonder Girl's request. Once back at the Tower, Rose begins a personal search for her mother, Lillian Worth. Once the new Robin arrives on the team, Rose and Damian clash as their personalities are very similar. However, their relationship begins to change as Rose feels close with Robin as he is also attempting to atone for his parent's sins.

    After Damien left the team, Rose begins flirting with Superboy. She remains with the team up until the final battle with Superboy-Prime and his Legion of Doom. During her fight with Persuader of the Terror Titans, Rose teams up with Speedy to take her down. She and Damien, who also returns, helps turn the tides of the battle of evil Superboy clones by using a piece of Kryptonite to destroy them.

    New 52 / Prime Earth:

    Superboy & N.O.W.H.E.R.E.

    The New 52's Ravager
    The New 52's Ravager

    At some point in her past, Rose was abducted by N.O.W.H.E.R.E. and forced under Harvest's employ. There, she is given the job of Superboy's handler, to keep him alive in the field or kill him, should he become uncontrollable. During this time, it is shown that Rose has a very close friendship with a N.O.W.H.E.R.E. scientist, Caitlin Fairchild, expressing her concern over the latter working herself so much. When Superboy inadvertently causes Caitlin to reveal her metahuman powers, N.O.W.H.E.R.E. intervenes and takes her away. Because of this, Rose comes to resent Superboy for being the reason that she lost Caitlin.

    When Superboy later breaks into the N.O.W.H.E.R.E facility, demanding answers as to what they have planned for him, Rose is deployed to bring him in. She manages to do this with the use of a careful strategy and a kryptonite gun, which, though failing to incapacitate him, gets him to drop his Telekinetic Field, allowing her to throw a sword into his chest. Afterwards, when she is walking down the hallway in preparation to leave the facility, she is attacked from behind and knocked out by Wonder Girl.

    A short time later, after the Teen Titans' infiltration of N.O.W.H.E.R.E is unsuccessful and most of the members are captured, Rose is seen in charge of overseeing the facility's cleanup. During this time, she is struck by an energy blast from Leash. This causes her to go into a brief, wild frenzy before being hit by a countering blast from Solstice (the only member of the Teen Titans still loose), which returns her to normal.

    Rose vs. Superboy
    Rose vs. Superboy

    Solstice reveals that Leash's blast is designed to bring out the very worst in people, and that Rose used to be much worse than she is now. Solstice goes on to say that she was there with Harvest when they first found her, and that Rose was "a killer among killers." Harvest then "changed" Rose to make her more controllable, resulting in some apparent memory loss. Solstice urges Rose to hang on to the woman she has become, not to give in to her darker nature, and says it's her choice. Though Rose seems to take Solstice's words to heart, she questions whether it really is her choice. She is then seen taking in an unconscious Solstice and delivering the Teen Titan to Harvest, as N.O.W.H.E.R.E.'s plans progress

    Rose is then deployed as part of the team sent to take in the members of Legion Lost, her target being Timber Wolf. She fights him to a standstill in a relatively even, though brief, battle, before being ordered to activate her psi-shield. This protects her against Psykill's Psi-Blast, which knocks all those within a three city block diameter unconscious. With all the Legionnaires currently incapacitated, Rose returns with her team to N.O.W.H.E.R.E.

    The Culling

    Former friends clash
    Former friends clash

    During "The Culling" crossover, Rose is sent in by Harvest, along with his other Ravagers, to kill the rebellious Teen Titans, members of Legion Lost, and other teens who banded together to end the normally deadly event without casualties. However, the Ravagers are vastly outnumbered, and because of this they are all eventually defeated. It is later revealed that Harvest knew this would happen, though, arriving at the Crucible at the end of battle to send his defeated Ravagers back to the surface.

    Rose is next seen confronting a returning Caitlin Fairchild, who had come back in order to help free the captive children. Though formerly friends, Rose now holds ill feelings towards Caitlin, after receiving the information left behind for her about Culling Day. Though Caitlin meant for this information to allow Rose to know the truth and free herself from N.O.W.H.E.R.E.'s control, Rose instead feels betrayed and lied to, now realizing that Cailtin had always intended to bring down N.O.W.H.E.R.E. from the inside, apparently still loyal to the organization (though this may be because of Harvest's brainwashing). The two come to blows, with Rose gaining the upper hand. However, she is then struck from behind and knocked unconscious by fellow Ravager Ridge, who has instead decided to join with the other escaping teens.

    At the end of The Culling, Rose is seen alongside Warblade trying to locate Fairchild. She quickly determines that her former friend would have stayed behind to take the last escape pod and tracks its coordinates. Warblade, meanwhile, goes to put together a team so they can track down Fairchild and the other escaped children.

    The Ravagers

    Rose and Warblade attack!
    Rose and Warblade attack!

    Rose and Warblade arrive in pursuit of the escaped teen prisoners. They first intercept a flying Windshear and Bright-Eyes, with Rose taking down the former and Warblade the latter. They then manage to intercept the main team, led by Caitlin. When several of the teens try to surrender, thinking that they're to be taken captive again, Rose and Warblade instead kill them, then move to attack Caitlin, Thunder, Lightning, and Ridge. Thunder uses his power to blast them backwards, however, then cracks the ice beneath them to escape, sending the team plummeting into the icy waters below.

    Rose later returns to Harvest's new base, where she and Warblade report that they have captured Windshear and Bright-Eyes, both of whom are apparently still alive. There, she learns that Harvest has sent Shadow Walker after Caitlin and the other escaped children.

    Some time later, Windshear and Bright-Eyes are turned into full fledged Ravagers and once again under Harvest's control, then sent out on a rookie mission to abduct another potential Ravager. After they are confronted and defeated by Fairchild and her team, Rose and Warblade appear, having been overseeing the assignment. Even though outnumbered, Rose and Warblade prove to be a challenge for the group, and when Rose temporarily incapacitates Caitlin, Lisa (the girl they were sent for), shows Fairchild a possible future where Rose and Warblade win. In this future, Rose kills Superboy and they take the others captive and turn them into the Ravagers they were meant to be.

    Back in reality, however, Terra goes berserk and almost loses control of her powers and her mind, causing the ground to explode and knocking out both Rose and Warblade. However, when she tries to kill Warblade, he regenerates and takes Rose with him, fleeing.

    Some time later, Rose and Warblade arrive at a small town to contain another one of N.O.W.H.E.R.E.'s escaped subjects. However, the subject overloads on his power and implodes, causing the entire town to become infected with non-baryonic radiation, which will cause them the same fate. While Warblade contemplates just killing them all to ensure that the situation remains contained, reminding that, as metahumans, he and Rose are immune, Rose resolves to solve the problem without killing, going out of her way to help the town. However, Rose soon finds out, to her shock, that she is somehow infected, and will implode soon without some kind of solution. Shortly after this revelation, Caitlin Fairchild and her team arrives to stop Rose and Warblade.

    After a brief bout of arguing between themselves and with the town's sheriff, Caitlin stops her team from attacking Rose and Warblade and decide to help the town before it destroys itself. Caitlins stays with Rose and the sheriff and brings her to the pharmacy to numb her pain with Morphine, while Warblade works out how to stop the radiation from killing the town. In order to do this, however, the sheriff sacrifices himself by taking in all of the radiation. Warblade doesn't understand how anyone could do such a thing, but Rose says there was once someone she would have given her life for (Caitlin), but was betrayed by her. Finally, Rose orders Warblade to leave, saying that if Harvest ever finds out what happened at this town, they're dead. Meanwhile, Harvest is watching them from afar.

    As they go to be extracted back to N.O.W.H.E.R.E., the troopers sent to get them suddenly attack, trying to kill them. Rose realizes that it is because Harvest already knows about their failure and has given the order to dispose of them. After miraculously defeating the troopers and a huge swarm of butcher bots, she and Warblade come to the conclusion that the only way to survive is to get back into Harvest's good graces, by delivering him Caitlin and the others.

    Rose and Warblade break into Caitlin's hideout and attempt to kidnap her and the others, to bring them back to Harvest. However, things go awry when Deathstroke, Rose's father, arrives at the same time to kill them, having been hired by Harvest himself. Things are further complicated when the facility's security protocol, a mutated monster known as The Animal-Vegetable-Mineral-Man attacks as well. While Warblade fights with Deathstroke, Rose and the others attack and destroy this new threat.

    Rose reveals Caitlin's secret
    Rose reveals Caitlin's secret

    Shortly after, Warblade is killed by Deathstroke. Rose brings Caitlin further into the facility, apparently knowing its layout and its secrets, having some kind of history with it and knowing about the operations of its owner, Niles Caulder. She claims that Niles kept something there that can help them stop Deathstroke. In spite of their differences, they manage to coexist long enough for Rose to reveal to Caitlin that she is a clone of the original Caitlin Fairchild (who died five years prior) created by Niles, and that there are many more clones in tanks around the lab of the facility.

    The two briefly come to blows, as Rose taunts Caitlin for being a clone. However, they are interrupted when the other clones break out and begin attacking Caitlin. Deathstroke shows up shortly after and stabs them both with the special blade that Harvest gave him. As it turns out, the blade is a teleporter, sending them and the rest of The Ravagers back to the Colony. There, Rose is handed over to her father along with Terra, as payment for his job.

    Stopping Majestic

    Rose and Terra end up going with Deathstroke to help put a stop to the Majestic threat created by Team 7. John Lynch refers to them as the keys to making that happen, though Deathstroke is unconvinced. It is revealed, though, that the whole reason he took the contract from Harvest to kill The Ravagers was to get his daughter back, and the plan was set in motion by Lynch himself.

    Things are complicated when Lynch reveals the other part of his plan to stop Majestic, however, the rest of Slade's family: Adeline Kane, his wife and Rose's mom, as well as Grant and Joseph Wilson, his sons and Rose's brothers. They soon learn that Joseph, now calling himself Jericho, is controlling both Grant and Adeline, and plans to control Majestic in order to attain god-like power and get revenge on his father. Though Rose manages to catch Joseph unaware at sword-point, she can't bring herself to kill her brother, forcing John Lynch to take a shot at him. Majestic intervenes, however, catching the bullet and now under the control of Jericho.

    Rose dampens other meta-powers

    Majestic destroys most of the facility, causing rubble to collapse and kill Adeline. Rose, Terra, and Deathstroke attack Majestic, discovering that Rose has the Gen-Active ability to dampen a person's physical invulnerability. When Majestic falls unconscious, Jericho takes control of Terra. Deathstroke knocks her out as well, and so Jericho threatens to kill Grant if they don't stop, by holding a sword to his throat and standing behind him. Though Rose tries to stop him, Deathstroke attacks and kills both of them by shoving the sword through their necks. In the aftermath, Rose disappears and Deathstroke goes into hiding, any chance of the two reconciling gone for good.

    The Professional

    Little Rose
    Little Rose

    Rose's origin begins in Cambodia, Where she lived with her mother Lillian. One day, Slade and a group of allies come to the brothel her mother operated to pull her out. However, on of the soldiers discovered Rose, and she shot him out of fear. Wintergreen calms her down as Slade looks on. Over the years, she decided to follow in Slade's footsteps, study his tactics and training under Nightwing to further hone her skills. Eventually, Rose begins living with her boyfriend Richard, and working two jobs; a day job as a club bouncer, and a side job as a mercenary. However, her jobs consist of stopping other hitmen from killing their targets. On one such job, Rose, in disguise, stops a small time hitman, buts scares him off instead of killing him. However, a group of thugs driving by attempt to rob her. Several police officers are nearby and draw their weapons causing a standoff. While everyone is tense, Rose's precognitive abilities reveal the truth; the entire situation is an ambush to kill her.

    Family Matters
    Family Matters

    While she begins to fight her way out of the ambush, she notices that her swords were missing. She finds that Slade took them to test her skills without them. Rose then finishes dispatching her would-be killers and leaves with her father in a police car. While on the move, Rose wants to know why he's here and he explains the bounty on her head. When they reach their destination, the club where Rose works a second job, Slade voices his disapproval of her choice to work as an anti-hitman. Rose then asks what Slade did to get a bounty put out on her, and Wintergreen, already in the club, cracks a joke about. Overjoyed to see Wintergreen was alive, they embrace, but Slade cuts the reunion short to get down to business.

    Later, Slade and Rose suit up and track a lead. On a rooftop the building, Rose takes a moment to text her boyfriend. However, Slade had Hosun intercept the messages and shoot back fake replies. Once she's done, Rose takes a moment to tell him that she is not intimate with her boyfriend. Slade, however does not care, and that caring is weakness, and weakness means she isn't ready to tackle any problem she may face. Rose asks him why he thinks she isn't ready, citing her learning from Nightwing and studying his tactics. He claims that all of that means nothing. He also tells her that partying all the time, working at a club while refusing to be intimate with her boyfriend based on a made-up philosophy prove that she is a stupid, immature teen. As he jumps in to take down the would be hitman and his crew, he tells his daughter he can't take her seriously because she doesn't believe in anything. Later, he is talking with Rose, and he found a lead he found from the hitman's hideout. He then gives her a meeting point.

    After picking her up, the two drive cross-country to Gotham incognito to chase the lead. Along the way, Rose is upset that they have to wear disguises, but he claims that they are needed to avoid Batman. Rose still thinks they are unnecessary, but Slade dismisses her. Rose then gets a call from her boyfriend, but Slade tosses her phone onto the road. She then climbs into the backseat of the car to sulk, while Slade calls her out making a rookie mistake. When they stop at a motel for the night, Rose call Wintergreen on a new phone to complain about being with Slade. Wintergreen tells her that Slade is a super-villian, but he does love her. She disagrees, so he explains that Slade can't express emotions like normal people, and that she needs to learn his "code." She then mentions his sons' respective fates, but Wintergreen reveals that Slade regrets how he treated his sons, and sees Rose as a second chance. He then tell her that Slade probably already knows who's gunning for her, but wants a chance to be around her, and also warns her not to push him because he can't deal with too many emotions.

    When they begin traveling again, A biker pulls up alongside them. Rose wakes up to the noise, only to see a vision of the Biker shooting Slade. Slade pulls over to talk, but Rose begins taking them all out. Slade is confused, but Slade realizes she had a vision. Even though she saves him, Slade is upset, not only because she started the fight, but because she didn't kill them. She claims the sights were off, which Slade doesn't buy. He then reveals he had a plan; he stopped for them to give them the marked bills he acquired from the hitman earlier, thus putting anyone following them off their trail. However, one last biker leaps out from their hiding place and shoots Slade, forcing him to kill him, proving the sights were fine. Thanks to the car damage, they are forced to take one of the bikers' motorcycle. While riding, Rose smiles, revealing that she is glad to be around her father.

    Ravager vs Robin
    Ravager vs Robin

    When the two reach Gotham, Rose is next seen engaging Robin after Slade's plan to catch Batman unaware failed. When Robin steals her swords, she resorts to guns, but he easily uses her swords to deflect the shots. Rose then reveals her trump card; while Damian was casing the meeting point, he was hit by a sprinkler; a sprinkler with water laced with drugs to knock him out. Rose then activates the enhancements on a souped up SUV Slade was driving; rocket to propel the car upwards and catch Robin and explosives in the back of the car to fend off Batman while the two escape.

    Later, Rose is talking to her boyfriend again as she waits for Batman to meet her on a rooftop across from GCPD headquarters, where she rigged the Bat-Signal to activate. However, Batman has been there for a while, and has to get Rose's attention. Putting Richard on hold, she explains Deathstroke's terms; help out, and she gives up Robin's location. However, Batman refuses the offer, warns her to leave because Slade is only using her. Upset about the turn of events, she follows Batman while returning her conversation with Richard. Once they two say their goodbyes, Rose begins going using her energy staff to cut into the truck Batman disappeared into. Before she can finish, the Batmobile appear out of the back, and Batman reveals he changed his mind.

    Training Day
    Training Day

    Now traveling with Batman, Rose states that she knew he wouldn't abandon Robin. He states that her mistake was thinking he was less disciplined than Slade. She responds that they need his help to find out who has it in for her, but Batman claims he doesn't need any help, as he probably already knows who it is. When she asks how, he says wants to know who benefits from her death. She assumes it's an enemy of Slade, but he's talking about her and her enemies. He then calls her a killer and says has no sympathy for her. Rose is skeptical that he doesn't kill anyone, and he confirms that truth; he kills no one, not even his enemies. She reiterates the deal, but he already knows she can't hold up her end of the deal because she doesn't know where Robin is, and that Slade has already abandoned the spot she thinks they're at.

    Batman then stops to deal with some thugs and has Rose watch the alley. As he heads inside, he tells her to leave her swords in the car. She then asks him why her dad wants Batman's help if he already knows who gunning for her. He replies that he wants Rose to distract him from something. Deciding he doesn't want to play Slade's game, he is simply getting on with his night. He then lets Rose drive the Batmobile to his next objective.

    On the way, she asks if he is worried about Robin. He claims Damian can handles himself, and tells her he cares more about what he'll do to Slade. He then says the Damian is proof people can change. She asks if he is trying to help her change, recalling Nightwing's attempt to help her. He then starts talking about her Hmong ancestry, and how she denies her heritage to be more like a lunatic. She then gets defensive, but Batman is only stating the obvious. He tells her that both she and Slade shuld be taken down, and when she asks why he and his friends haven't done it already, he says its because the other don't listen to him when he mentions it.

    He then asks why she does what she does, and her response is simply because Slade is he dad. Batman says that isn't enough and that she must surrender herself to the path she's walking or it will kill her. She dodges by suggesting she call Slade so he can pinpoint his location, but Batman claims he already dumped the phone he was using. He tells her that Slade left her with him in order to distract everyone so he could get to his real target. HE also says that he took advantage of the fact that Rose called her boyfriend to make the killer think Slade was in Gotham, thus lulling them into a false sense of security. She claims that Slade probably wants him to get inside her head, but he says that he wants them trying to figure out what they want. She then asks him about the duffel bag he retrieved earlier, and he reveals it is a nuclear device powerful enough to destroy Gotham. He then tells her to stay put,and calmly heads into a house he was targeting. Ignoring him, she enters through the front doors and takes out the thugs on the first floor using guns and throwing stars. An injured thug tries to rush her, and as she is about to cut him down, Batman stops her and takes down the thug.

    The two then head to where Damian was being held. As Damian escapes, the three look for Deathstroke, who was actually never there. Rose realizes that the entire night was setup in order allow him to find the killer. When she asks if Batman knows where Slade is, he says he doesn't. She realizes Batman could find him but won't. Instead he offers her a safe house, and Rose realizes who actually benefits from her death. Batman tells her he doesn't know who tried to kill her, but he does know who put out the contract. Rose is put into a safe house for the night, where she mulls over the fact that Slade is out to kill her. Upset, she calls someone about meeting them to talk about Slade.

    Later, she meets Étienne and talks about Slade. Étienne is telling Rose that she loves Slade, which she denies. She then goes over recent events, saying that she didn't actually care about him, but Étienne says otherwise; Slade made her think he cared, and she fell for it. She also calls her an idiot for feeling the need to believe Slade cares. After more rude remarks, Rose snaps back, but it turns out she was talking to the third person in the room; Jericho, and that Étienne was translating for him. Jericho asks Étienne for the room, and she leaves. Using his new sub-vocal microphone to talk. Jericho informs her that he is marrying Étienne and Rose brings up the contract Slade put out on her. Jericho jokingly proposes they try to kill him, but before they can talk further, Isherwood appears to talk business with Jericho. Rose, remembering him from her childhood, greets him, then leaves to get some food.

    She finds a place to get some Kung Pao. While she tries and fails to reach Richard, thinks about when Batman called her a murderer. When she fails to use her chopsticks and spills her food, another customer tries to help her, but they speak Chinese, which confuses her. Étienne, just arriving, clarifies that he thinks she is Chinese instead of Hmong. Rose tells her that she understand she doesn't like her, but she clarifies that she dislikes how she treats Jericho. She also tells her to try getting in touch with her Hmong side.

    Later, Rose watches Jericho uses the new Ikon suit he acquired to rescue children from a burning building. Once they are safe, Rose talks about how Étienne doesn't like her, and hw she's worried about Slade trying to kill her. Jericho is skeptical that Slade is really after her, but Rose won't budge. Before leaving, she warns Jericho never to underestimate Slade. Rose is later seen when Étienne is entering her home. After stunning her with a blast from her energy staff, she tells her that she's okay with her marrying Jericho, but after finding undeveloped film hidden in the bathroom, she thinks that Étienne is a part of the cult that got Grant killed. In response, Étienne tells her the truth about her boyfriend; that even though she trusts, him, he hasn't told her the truth about him and hints that he was working for Slade. Upset at the revelation. Rose goes to the airport and takes a flight to Ho Chi Minh. While pondering Étienne's words, she resets the phone she took off of her, leaves it in the seat, and boards her flight.

    "I've Discovered My Roots"

    From Ho Chi Minh, Rose treks to Laos to find her mother's family. On the way, she tells the men who have been following her to reveals themselves. They oblige her, and she quickly dispatches them. Once they are down, a group of bikers appear. Rose tells the leader she is not impressed. In response, she tells her she is not impressed either. However, Rose notices that the biker called her Xia. She explains it means "glory of the sunrise." The biker takes off her helmet and reveals herself to be a member of her family. She tells her that if she's come looking for the "ancient family sword," she hopes she could get a refund on her plane ticket.

    Her new relative takes Rose to Minnesota, where she lives with her children. When they get there, she meets some of her young cousins. The mysterious woman then explains that Lillian was her sister and that Xia was her given name, as the name Lillian Worth was a name given to her by the D.E.A. operatives she helped, and asks her to call her Mia because he full name is tricky to pronounce. While they talk, her cousin Tubnxang (nicknamed Tubby) arrives and immediately begins hitting on her. They go outside and she asks if he greets all his cousins that way. A group of armed gangsters ride up and start hitting on her. Tubby and his friends start arguing with the gangsters, and Rose tells them all off for wanting to kill each other. After they give her the breakdown of how the local Hmong differentiate each other, she tells them to leave. When one of them keeps hitting on her, she easily takes him down, dismantles his gun and goes back in the house. Once inside, her younger cousins swarm her, enamored by her fighting skills. When she pats one of them on the head, Mia tells Rose it is an insult to touch another Hmong's head. She tells Rose that her family is complex, and she replies that it is nothing compared to what her father puts her through.


    Having decided to stay with her Aunt's family, Rose is seen watching her cousin ChuChu put on a performance outside of her school. Once it is over, Rose congratulates her then takes her into the school. Before they can get inside, Hosun, Slade's old tech whiz for hire stops Rose. Her cousins immediately insert themselves between the two, but he explains that he came because he fears Slade is after him. He explains how he used to work for Slade, then quit when he found out who he was really working for. He also reveals he testified against him in court, and came looking for her when he was freed from prison. Rose is apathetic to his problem, as she no longer considers Slade a part of her life. Hosun doesn't care, and tells her about his plan to save his skin; Rose marries him. She immediately refuses, but he keeps pressing because he hopes that if Rose tells Slade she loves him, he will spare him. Rose simply tells that he will kill him twice over. When he brings up Richard, she argues that Richard was working for Slade. Hosun then sets her straight; Richard wasn't working for Slade, and the hit was just a way for him to spend time with her. When she asks who Richard was really working for, he agrees to tell her if she marries him. When she turns him down, he settles for paying for his parking spot. He tells her that whoever Richard was working for hates both Slade and her. Putting the pieces together, she realizes Adeline was responsible.

    Later Rose is seen checking on Hosun, who is living in a doghouse to avoid being found by Slade. She tries, to no avail, to convince him that Deathstroke doesn't care enough about her for a marriage to portect him. At that moment one of her cousins comes to try to talk her into leaving. She dismisses him until he offer to show her something. He takes her to a pawn shop, where her cousin explains that many Hmong valuables ended up at when their people immigrated to the area. He agrees to buy her something and tell everyone it's a family heirloom if she agrees to leave. Rose settles on a decrepit sword with a unique inscription, "Paj Duag Kub Lag." When she asks for a translation, they explain it loosely means "Rose."

    Visions of Death
    Visions of Death

    One night, a nightmare involving Jericho shocked her awake. Distraught, she calls to check on him while he has possessed a woman while working a side project. While he works, she warns him that Étienne might be in league with Adeline, but Joey still intends to marry her whether she is working for Adeline or not. In the morning, Rose tells Aunt Mai that she is leaving to help Joseph. Though she vows to return in a week, Mai already knows that Rose has learned all she can about her mother's world, and now needs to get back to her own world. She asks Mai if it was a coincidence that they met near her family's village. Mai relies that it doesn't matter, as she learned a lot from her time with her. Tubby then takes a moment to remind her about Hosun. She asks him to come with her, but he refuses unless she marries him. She instead offers to pay for his parking again.

    As she and Hosun prepare to catch a flight to see Joseph in Los Angeles, she calls ahead to let him know she is coming. However, Étienne answers, asking what she wants, she call her out on being a H.I.V.E agent. She claims that she isn't but Rose already knows. She then claims to actually love Joseph, but Rose warns her to leave before she reaches Los Angeles. Étienne tells Rose that Slade is the true enemy, though that is common knowledge already. Out of spite, Étienne drops a bombshell: that the extended family were all actors hired by Slade, and that Hosun knew about it.

    Rose then returns to the house to confront her "family", and Mai confirms the truth. She reveals that she knew Rose from when she worked at her mother's brothel in Cambodia. Even though did not like working there, Lillian gave her saffety in turbulent times. She tell Rose that even though they are not blood, she loves her like family. Still angry, Rose leaves, and when Hosun asks about what hat happened, she kisses him in response. Returning to the airport, she calls Wintergreen and unloads all of the grief Slade has caused her onto him. Wintergreen tries to calm her and explains that everything Slade has done is because he loves her, and was expressing it in his own unusual way. She asks him how she can escape Slade, but he says that she can't, because Slade needs them around, or he'll become something worse that he already is. He then invites her to Jericho's wedding, but she doesn't want to go because of Adeline and Slade. Wintergreen believes that they will behave for Joseph's sake, but she also doesn't approve of his fiancée either.

    When she touches down in Los Angeles, Rose finds that someone hired a chauffeur for her. Assuming it was Joseph, she reluctantly allows the the driver to take her to the wedding. When she asks the driver his name, he tells her it is Matthew Bland. As they head to their destination, she asks why he isn't driving. He comments that his chauffeur is competent enough, and offers a drink. She passes, and asks him about the gift he gave her and what he wants from her. Matthew explains who he is and his history with Slade that he is merely paying her dad back for his help in regaining his country. Curious, she opens her gift and is shocked to see her Ravager costume, which she destroyed along with the name. Matthew tells her that she doesn't have to be Ravager and to try being Rose, which reminds her of what Batman told her. He tells her that she has a destiny that she should embrace. She thinks he means to be a villain, but he tells her there is no such thing. He then tells her that he had an agent steal the data from the phone she stole from Étienne the last time she was in town, and the data she tried to delete was instrumental for his theft of the ship he stole, which allowed him to retake his country. The suit is merely a gift for his new friend.

    "It Hurts To Always Be Right"

    The day of the wedding, Rose, Slade, Adeline, and Barry sit together as they wait for the proceedings to start. As the wait, Adeline makes a crack about her ritual of trying to kill Slade every time she sees him, and Rose makes a retort back. She then take a moment to tell Slade that she is only here because Wintergreen stood up for him, and tell him off for all the wrongs he did. She brings up the fake family, and he responds that he was trying to help her learn about her heritage and drive her to decide who she wants to be. She asks him to just say that he loves her, but at that moment, Joseph storms in wearing the Ikon suit and attacks Slade, to everyone's confusion. As their melee bleeds out into the streets, Rose dons the Ravager suit Ja Zaki gave her and heads out to stop them. As she catches up, Joseph is pummeling a defenseless Slade. She tries to tell him to stop, but in his enraged states, he downs her with one strike. Once Jericho realizes what he has done and stops, Rose is hospitalized in a comatose state.

    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 130 lbs.
    • Eyes: Blue
    • Hair: White


    • Citizenship: American
    • Place of Birth: New York City, New York
    • Marital Status: Married
    • Occupation: Adventurer, government agent, former mercenary
    • Known Relatives: Slade Wilson (father), Lillian Worth (mother), Grant Wilson (half-brother), Joseph Wilson (half-brother), Hosun (husband)

    Powers & Abilities

    • Precognition: Rose's powers include limited precognition. She is sometimes able to use her precognitive abilities to 'see' her opponent's next moves, although her visions come and go, mainly it appears to manifest when her adrenaline is running. In one instance, she was able to have an extensive precognitive vision where she saw her father's (Deathstroke's) future. During this jaunt, Rose was able to project her astral form and inhabit the body of someone in the future (similar to her brother Jericho's ability). In Terror Titans #1, Rose had been given an inhaler by Clock King to trigger her precognitive abilities. Therefore, she can use them pretty much at will. In Terror Titans #2, Rose suggested to Clock King that she could see as far as weeks into the future possibly implying that soon her precognitive skills will develop into even more. Though at the end of her backup feature, Rose seems to have abandoned the inhalers.
      • As of DC: Rebirth, Rose now has her precognitive powers in the current continuity, and she does not rely on an adrenaline rush to trigger it. Also, her powers are explained differently. Rose's mind takes in large amounts of information, and condenses it all into a probability assessment with a margin of error that she perceives as a vision. She then takes steps to keep her vision from coming to pass. Her powers also occasionally trigger in her sleep.
    • Unarmed Combat: Rose is a skilled martial arts expert, having trained under her mother from a young age and Deathstroke later on, with enhanced agility, speed, strength and endurance thanks to the same serum Deathstroke was given, however Rose's mind was also affected by the serum, making her more easy to manage. The combination of precog and superhuman body leaves Rose a force to be reckoned with as she has proven a worthy challenge to people such as Cassandra Cain. Also Rose herself considered herself skilled enough to challenge the New God Big Barda, though the fight did not resolve.
    • Weapons Master: She is very skilled in the use of her arsenal of weapons. Her default weapons are a bo staff ,dual wield swords, and various firearms. However, it seems to matter little what weapon you give her as chances seem to be that she can use it.
    • Enhanced Attributes: Rose was given the same serum as her father, essentially turning her into a super soldier. Her strength, speed, reflexes, durability, healing, etc. all surpass peak human levels. These attributes appear to be even greater in the New 52 reboot so far. Combined with her skill and precognition, this turns her into a true force to be reckoned with.

    Former Abilities

    • Power Dampening: In the New 52 universe, Rose's metagene causes her to dampen and reduce another person's invulnerability, and possibly other traits such as super strength. This allows her to do damage to people such as Majestic and Superboy.
    • Psionics: In the New 52, Rose has possible psionic abilities. This is a common ability among Gen-Actives. She was shown in one instance as speaking "psionically" (telepathically), to Caitlin Fairchild.
    • Immunity to Mind Control/Body Possession: In the New 52, Rose was show as being completely immune to Jericho's ability to possess bodies and control people's minds.

    At some point she confronted the Angel of Vengeance, stating that Andrea was a fun one to take down.

    While some D.E.O. agents proceed to recapture Doctor Phosphorus from the bottom of the ocean, putting him in a containment box. One of them wonders how he could actually escaped from the prison in the first place and says that he knows it didn't happen from the inside so that means that someone outside of the prison helped him. Hidden in a roof close by a mysterious woman who is watching the agents reveals that she was the one who let Phosphorus escape and she only did it so she can observe Garrick's team in action.

    At Jay Garrick's school, Jaime enters his room but he slides on some blood that there is on the floor and sees Zan severely wounded. Jaime immediately turns on his armor but before he can transform an unknown woman, who was behind the door, attacks him with some kind of sonic waves and wonders if the Blue Beetle will be more cooperative from Zan.

    Inside Jaime and Zan's room, the woman reveals that she is Slade Wilson' s daughter and that the reason she is attacking them is because of her father, she is continuing his task, which was to stop and imprison the vigilantes, like he did with V.R.A. and when he killed Hawkman. She is also blaming the superheroes for his current comatose state. Jaime asks her what that has to do with them and she tells him that her father tried to stop the next generation of heroes from rising into power and now she makes sure that they will "die in the crib". Jaime asks her how she knew where to find them and she says that she found out about them when she confronted Stargirl. She also implied that she might had hurt Courtney. Then she asks him why would he want to join this team but Jaime replies to her by asking why she doesn't just kill him and she says that he and Zan were just practice for her. Suddenly Conner appears and strikes her with his heat vision throwing her through the window, outside of the building and saying that she will need the practice.

    Outside, Rose lands on the ground and says she got caught off guard and it won't happen again, while catching an arrow Mia throws on her. Jay, Mia and Megan confront her with Jay saying to her to leave his lawn. He then runs towards her but she uses a gravity bomb, which immobilizes him. Mia then fights with her seemingly defeating her but Rose manages to poison Mia with a needle full of a drug called, "Vertigo", making her sick. Conner then arrives and Jay tells him not to worry about him and waste any more time but get to work. Megan asks Rose what did she do to Mia and she says to Megan not to worry because the drug will run its course before long. Then Megan says she is not the one she should be worried and mentally attacks Rose but before Megan can actually do to her any damage, Rose reveals that she also knows about her weaknesses and attacks her with fire.

    Rose threatens the rest of the team to stand down or she will kill their teammates by detonating the bomb Jaime has on his back. Conner tells her if she wants a real fight she should confront him and leave the rest of his team out of this. Rose then says that his proposal makes it easier on her because he is the reason she is there in the first place, while revealing that she has a green kryptonite sword especially for him.

    While Conner speeds towards her, Rose says that he might be strong but he is also careless, and then wounds him with her sword. Seeing him hurt, an obviously worried Megan calls his name but Conner tells her and the rest of the team to stay back. As Rose gets ready to attack him again, she says that the problem with most of the heroes is that they aren't willing to kill. A weakened Conner, both from the green kryptonite and his wound, tries to prove her wrong as he attacks her with his heat vision but he misses. He then tries to attack her again but the effect of the kryptonite on him has also weakened his powers. Conner then asks Rose that if she is so better than then why she haven't killed Jaime, Zan or even Stargirl yet. He also says that she might not be the big bad killer, she wants everyone to think of her but while Conner talks to her, Rose proceeds to attack him once again and this time she wounds him in the belly. Rose tells him that he should not think she is just playing with him because she is the one to blame for all the innocent people that got killed when she freed Phosphorus and she also says that she is a real killer and every person who has an "S" on his chest is just as bad. Then Conner asks her why she did not go after Superman in the first place, before he hits her in the face.

    Meanwhile, Mia, who is still suffering from drug poisoning, says that she can't fight in her condition but Conner, through the telepathic link, tells her to just start shooting arrows. While Rose is ready to kill Conner with her sword, Conner uses his telekinesis to control Mia's arrows aiming Rose. Rose then threatens Conner that if he kills her she will blow up his friends and their home base. Suddenly Jay appears in a helicopter bringing D.E.O.'s soldiers with him and telling them that Rose is the one who freed their prisoner. Conner says to Rose that the "S" on his chest means "Hope" not "Murder" but he can't just let her walk away. Rose says that he must go ahead and kill her because she won't get sent to a prison, like the one her father was sent and then proceeds to commit suicide but Conner uses the arrows with his telekinesis and destroys Rose's sword. Conner succeeds to take the detonator from Rose and then the D.E.O. arrests her.

    Later, Superman visits Conner and tells him that Jay told him he was proud of him. Conner says that he might visit Rose in Alcatraz because she is still allowed visitors until her hearing and he wants her to know that just because her father was a tool, it doesn't mean she has to be one too.

    In the alternate reality that the Justice League visits, Rose is the daughter of US President Slade Wilson and is a brave but outspoken woman who public speaks out against the Crime Syndicate and condemns her father's policies of bowing to their oppression. She often calls her father a coward and this determination and anger stems from her mother being killed personally by Ultraman, who later orders Rose to be assassinated and she only survives due to the intervention of Martian Manhunter. As J'onn remains by her side to protect her from further attacks, they quickly learn that they have a deep empathic connection to each other and fall in love.
