I'm really curious to see how that plays in with Batman v Deathstroke!
    By disorder I was thinking along the lines of Slade being a Sociopath which is not inherently something bad, there are a lot of individuals who would be considered a sociapath but they are not a danger to society like most people would assume and with Slade, the only reason Slade is a danger to society is b/c of the work he chooses to do.

    Do we know that Slade is hallucinating young Wintergreen, or was Isherwoood bluffing in saying that he lied about it to Slade...

    I'm pretty sure we're meant to think that the hallucination is Slade's mind being corrupted, rather than Isherwood lying. I mean, Ish has done some shady stuff like keeping his relationship with Joey a secret, but I don't think he's lying right now.

    I think Slade has a conscience, he's just chosen to suppress it, which is very dangerous.

    Yeah, she has it rough right now. All of her past trauma came back to haunt her at the worse possible time.

    It's Isherwood, Deathstroke's former gadget maker/equipment guy/sniper, who became a Canadian superhero/Christian and had a secret affair with Joey. When Joey decided to marry Etienne, he pushed Isherwood off a building in a fit of rage to prevent him from telling Slade. He then got mad scientists to infect Ish with Deathstroke's healing powers via a virus, which turned him into Deathstroke Hulk.

    Haha, very true. I realized typing that out that it's pretty darn convoluted!

    Joey pushed Isherwood off the roof to prevent him from telling Etienne and Joey did not know Dr. Villain was gonna inject Isherwood with Deathstroke as well as his own DNA, Dr. Villain never disclosed that information to Joey.

    I really liked this last issue. Sure, the plot felt somewhat rushed at time around the supporting characters, but Slade was great through and through, and seeing him going (apparently?) insane was great. I hope that Abnett will be able to make use of Priest's characterization when he'll write Deathstroke in The Silencer. I don't want him to be jobbed or turned into a uni-dimensional villain or something of the like...

    Totally, totally agree. I'm not necessarily a Slade fan outside of Priest's stuff, but since Silencer takes place at the same time as Priest's stuff, I want Abnett to give respect to the amazing work Priest has done here. I think he will - his stuff on Aquaman has been really high quality, and Silencer is, of course, awesome.

    Yeah, I was going off the top of my head. It's super complicated!

    It's a pretty awesome painting! Though I'm a bit surprised it's Superman's cape, and not Batman's. But I'm sure all is according to plan...
