The Third Eye Guide to DC Comics's Terminus Agenda
Published February 28th, 2019
OK, so first off: you’re probably asking — what’s the big deal with DEATHSTROKE and the TITANS, and why are these characters so intrinsically tied still after all these years? Well, we’re gonna tell you!
DEATHSTROKE, an iconic bad guy in his own right who has stood the test of time, is to the Titans as THE JOKER is to BATMAN or GREEN GOBLIN is to SPIDER-MAN, while these characters are so big they can be a bad guy to anyone — their history is so richly embedded in one another’s pasts that the two always find themselves coming back to battle, and the Titans and Deathstroke are the exact same thing!
Going back as far as TEEN TITANS THE JUDAS CONTRACT (which if you’ve never read, we highly recommend you pick up the graphic novel in one of our shops and find out just why this series is so darn iconic in terms of comic history!), a storyline that features everything from the retirement of Robin and Kid Flash, to the birth of Nightwing and the introduction of Jericho, to the ultimate betrayal of a Titan-“The Judas Contract”, a story that kept readers positively riveted during its initial run and still has fans talking today, and continuing into iconic runs like GEOFF JOHNS’S TEEN TITANS (where Deathstroke blows off Impulse’s kneecap!) and most recently, TITANS HUNT, the character has always had his best moments when pitted against the Titans!
Now, it’s all coming together again, as we kick off the TERMINUS AGENDA, as we’re shown a truly new twist on the dynamic between the Titans and Slade… no longer the hunter, but now the hunted – Damian Wayne is leading his Titans in a full out assault on Slade, and the tables are turned in a big way!
Read on below, and find out how you can follow the TERMINUS AGENDA crossover!
