Deathstroke is one of the most deadly assassins in the DC Comics universe. Slade Wilson has worn several hats, including a soldier, mercenary, superhero, and supervillain. He walks a fine line between good and evil more than most, but it hasn’t kept him from killing a lot of people over the years. Deathstroke and Batman‘s feud has seen many highs and lows, and Deathstroke possesses undeniable abilities that should cause Batman problems. Here are the 6 Ways How Deathstroke Is A Better Well-Oiled Fighting Machine Than Batman.
Better at Dealing With Superman
Even though Slade avoids conflict with Superman, when it comes to outsmarting the Man of Steel, he is a master. His Ikon Suit proved useful in preventing Superman from touching him (until Jericho shut down the suit). Slade knows when to use Superman’s vulnerable points to make him step back, even without these deadly weapons. Those vulnerable points are mostly Lois Lane and other innocent lives. Batman, on the other hand, has only used Kryptonite to defeat Superman.
Ikon Suit >>>> Batsuit
The Ikon Suit is a recent addition to the Deathstroke universe. Dr. David Isherwood designed it, and it provides Deathstroke with a gravity sheath that defends him from most strikes while also increasing his power to an extent. This is a half-finished Ikon outfit. Jericho’s Ikon Suit boosts his strength and gives him the ability to fly.
The Justice League cannot stand him
Deathstroke once went up against the Justice League without any special weaponry, and it took an entire team physically detaining him and an arrow through the eye to bring him to a halt. This isn’t even counting the occasions he has single-handedly defeated or outsmarted superheroes like the Flash, Green Arrow, and Black Canary. Slade’s Justice League team didn’t contain Superman, Wonder Woman, or even Batman, to begin with. In a fight like this, they’d be significantly more of a problem for Slade.
Scarier Than Batman
Deathstroke has no hesitation in slaughtering anyone he believes deserves to die. Furthermore, if Deathstroke is pursuing you, he is pursuing you precisely. He’s not going to be sidetracked by the Riddler abducting Commissioner Gordon or a casual crime a block away. Deathstroke is the Terminator, and he will not stop unless he is finished with his target.
Deals with Problem Permanently
In comparison to Batman, the Terminator is far better at coping with long-term issues in a lasting manner. The Terminator has killed a number of important figures, including Odysseus, the new Libra, and the Atom (Ryan Choi). By contrast, Batman has long allowed criminals like the Joker to run amok in Gotham City, enabling the Clown Prince of Crime to overrun entire cemeteries. The situation would have been addressed long ago if the Joker had taken on Deathstroke.
