Slade Wilson is a member of Team 7, an elite division of the Australian Secret Intelligence Service. The iconic Deathstroke gear, including the two-toned balaclava, appear to be standard equipment for this unit. Slade and his partner, Billy Wintergreen, were sent on a mission to rescue Yao Fei from a detention facility on Lian Yu. Both are captured by mercenearies led by Edward Fyers Wintergreen betrays Slade and joins Fyers, while Slade escapes and is forced to to go into hiding and adopt a different strategy for extracting Yao. Oliver Queen eventually acquires a map which leads him to a downed cargo plan that Slade has been using as a hideout. When Oliver discovers the Deathstroke mask in Slade's possession, Slade reveals his connection to Oliver's torturer, and trains Oliver so he can help him carry out his mission. They ultimately plan to ambush an airfield and use a cargo plane to escape. Slade eventually duels Wintergreen, gaining revenge on him by stabbing him the eye with his combat knife. He is subsequently shot by Fyers, but Oliver manages to remove the bullet and heal him with "super herbs" that Yao Fei had previously used on him. Oliver and Slade subsequently need a new strategy to escape, but Slade believes that with Oliver's newfound experience, they now have a chance.
