Is he really even the same character as Deathstroke?

he seems just completely different in practically every way.
>>
>>94476326
In my country they didn't even bother changing his name, everyone called him Deathstroke
>>
He may be the 'Same', but I view this version as a different character.
>>
>>94476326
He's a much, much better character than Deathstroke. Aside from his weird obsession with Robin
>>
>>94477820
what country?
>>
>>94476326
>deathstroke: morally ambiguous mercernary. Would occasionally do the right thing but mostly did whatever paid the most. Terrible father
>Slade: same costume but but some unexplained reason wanted to destroy the city and torture teenagers. Family was never expanded on
Yeah i feel like hes totally different
>>
>>94479373
Him wanting to rape Robin was the only good thing about him
>>
>>94479373
How was "Slade" a good character at all
I don't remember him having any motivation, reasoning, or origin
He's just an edgy archetype of shadowy in the darkness evil guy
>>
You'll also notice that Robin, Starfire, Terra, Killer Moth etc. are completely different characters in this show. It's not a faithful adaptation.

>Stalks and makes plans to kill off teenagers for barely any reason.
>Wants to control them and turn to his side for vaguely-defined reasons.
>Remains the most iconic enemy they have faced.

Other than not being a mercenary and having this "creepy dark schemer aura", I'd say he is quite similar to the original. Original Slade just didn't give a shit about... everything, but he wasn't a card-carrying villain like the cartoon Slade.

>Stalks and makes plans to kill off teenagers for barely any reason.
He literally turned down a direct opportunity to do so in the season 1 finale, consequence-free. He's not in it for teh evulz, anon.
>>
Only thing I took away from Toon Slade is his voice.

Ron Perlman is the perfect voice for Deathstroke. Everyone else who's done it just sounds like an edgy try hard.
>>
>>94476326
Pretty different character mostly stemming from how Deathstroke is just a merc while Slade is some kind of plotter that wants to rule shit because of ???
>>
>>94480461
I'm like 99% sure the voice was heavily altered, though, based on other work that VA has done.
>>
The only difference between comic Deathstroke and his cartoon version is that the cartoon doesn't try to justify his crimes and that he's not a mercenary.
>>
>>94480575
That's two differences, retard.
>>
>>94480468
Deathstroke was always a plotter in the comics too.
>>
>>94480479
It's called range
>>
>>94480633
I'm well aware of range, anon, and again I'm 99% certain it's not that.
>>
Pretty sure the creators wanted an original villain cast but the Network said no so they just took established villains and changed their names and/or personalities to fit their mold
>>
>>94480675
Like they did with the main cast?
>>
>>94476326
>top-tier mercenary who can make it as a B/C-list Bats villain
>struggles against and is obsessed with a bunch of amateurs
>>
>>94480788
>Amateurs
Beast boy, Robin, Starfire, and Donna are are all experienced veterans.
>>
>>94479373
t. casual who hasn't read prieststroke
>>
What I wanna know is which episodes are actual Slade episodes. I never really enjoyed TT that much outside of Slade's appearences.
>>
>>94480788
>amateurs

>A highly-skilled child soldier
>A half-demon telekinetic
>A human zoo who trained with the Doom Patrol
>A genetically-enhanced alien war machine
>A tank squeezed into a black quarterback

I wouldn't want to take any of them on.
