Deathstroke the Terminator #3



Somebody is compensating!

In this issue, Deathstroke is beaten near to death by the new Ravager. He still hasn't revealed who he is but I'm sure it'll be a super shocking twist. I might shit myself it'll be so shocking so I'm reading the next issue sitting on the toilet.

Although I have to say, Ravager is being an idiot. The first rule of Supervillainry should be this: "1. Resist the temptation of playing with your prey. Don't try to make them feel pain. Don't try to make them hurt by hurting friends and family. Don't beat them within an inch of their lives just for kicks. You're only going to make them angry. Just fucking kill them!" As you may have surmised by my previous two sentences, Ravager cannot resist the temptation of keeping Deathstroke alive just to make him feel sadness.

I've also been reading Wintergreen's journal as if it's a high school diary dedicated to his major crush, Slade, and it's fantastic.

Oh! And a huge positive about this book! Because Wintergreen's journal take the place of the Narrator, the reader never gets into Deathstroke's mind. We, like Wintergreen, are observers and left to make our own judgments about Deathstroke's actions. It works so much better than all of The New 52 Douch├ęstork books where we in his head incessantly and have to listen to him bitch and moan about how much he loves his kids.
