|Deathstroke the Terminator|
Decorated military veteran Slade Wilson served his country one last time by volunteering for adrenocorticotropic hormone experiments. These experiments were supposed to increase the brain-activity and reflexes of its subjects, creating super-enhanced soldiers...but the subjects died or, like Wilson, were left crippled in a vegetative state. But Wilson began to recuperate, discovering that his strength, agility and stamina had all increased nearly tenfold! He assumed the identity of Deathstroke the Terminator, assassin for hire.

In the Comics and MediaEdit
Slade Wilson was part of a supersoldier project, but he lied about the experiment success and became a mercenary known as the Terminator. When his son Joseph was rendered mute by one of his enemies, Slade's wife tried to kill him, but only managed to destroy his right eye.
Slade's other son, Grant, would become the Ravager and face the Titans under orders of the organizarion HIVE. When Grant died, Terminator agreed to complete Grant's contract. This would be the beginning of his long history with the Titans, sometimes as and enemy, sometimes as an ally.
In recent times, the character has been renamed Deathstroke to avoid confusion wit the Terminator film franchise, and is treated as if Deathstroke had always been his codename.
