Surprise! Legacy Four is Ravager!
And Grant's greatest weakness is his need to be loved by daddy!
Keep talkin', Chatty Cathy.
Keep telling yourself that. It's probably easier to believe Slade can't love than to realize the truth: Slade just doesn't love you!
And then Kyle Higgins, thankfully, changes up the script from the Hollywood cliche shit I've been guessing would happen! Grant has the upper hand right up until Grant's Legacy suit locks up from a remote control command given by April's parents! Slade collapses near his son as the parents approach.
Is this one of those Sophie's choice situations?
It's easy to be right about certain situations when the writer actually has a handle on the character. Bravo, Kyle Higgins.
Deathstroke Issue #7 Rating: +1 Ranking. Except for the long, drawn out beginning sequence, this was a good issue. I'm glad I was wrong about the direction the issue would go. A lesser writer would have gone with the usual Hollywood tripe. I usually guess the Hollywood tripe because many of the New 52 DC writers have proven that that's all they know. I'm not thrilled that Grant is still alive. But that's the comic book format for you. Better to keep a nemesis alive than to cover over that well of future plot-lines.
