In terms of comic book history, Slade Wilson (aka Deathstroke) is a fairly new character. First introduced in 1980 as a villain in New Teen Titans #2, the mercenary and assassin has nonetheless had a complex and varied history in his short sixteen years. Deathstroke has fought everyone from Batman and Green Arrow to (oddly enough) Wolverine. A former U.S. military veteran imbued with super soldier powers, Slade Wilson is almost always portrayed as a disillusioned fighter looking out for his wife and kids (who are sometimes dead). But while he’s shown up outside of comics in The CW’s Arrow and now on Ben Affleck’s social media feed, perhaps Deathstroke’s finest hour was on a children’s show that broke him out of his solider of fortune role.

Back in July, Betty Cooper and Veronica Lodge struck off on their own from the rebooted Archie universe for an updated take on Betty & Veronica.
