Early History Edit
Wilson was an accomplished member of the special forces. This distinction earned him admittance into a covert program where he was subjected to extensive mental and physical augmentation. The procedures left him with increased mental function, as well as enhanced speed, strength, and stamina.
Following his military service, Wilson worked for various private military contractors before striking out on his own – and allegedly becoming one of the highest paid contract killers in the world, specializing in high profile assassinations.
Black Widow Edit
Deathstroke was hired by Black Mask to kill the Black Widow for $50 million. The mercenary followed her shortly after she defeated Electrocutioner, and caught her just as she was finding her way out of the pit arena. Here, the pair fought for a long time, with Black Widow surprised at the skill and ferocity that Deathstroke had; her first real enemy that was hired to kill her, the first real, serious threat. Despite this, Deathstroke was defeated by her, but he managed to retreat.
The pair fought at least one more time later on, which likewise resulted in Deathstroke's defeat.
Being the subject of a Military medical experiment, Deathstroke has traits akin to a super soldier; enhanced strength, speed, stamina, durability, and healing factor. Besides this, his reputation was built highly from his intensive special forces training, learning combative skills all over the world. He has become perhaps one of the best mercenaries in the world, with few ever coming close to beating him. Those that do, he holds an intense grudge over, and continues to hunt them for his personal code of honor.
Adding to his arsenal of deadly skills, Deathstroke goes into every battle with a variety of items that aid him in his almost ceaseless list of successful missions.
Deathstroke's armor is made of an unknown materiel that, in addition to offering him protection from a variety of attacks up to medium military grade firearms, enhances his strength further. It is also hinted that the armor contains some method for self-repair, however it has built up a number of battle scars. The armor is only usable by him or other meta-humans, as normal people are not compatable with it; if a regular human were to wear it, their bodies would slowly break down at the cellular level.
