-- Slade Wilson src


Slade Wilson is a former member of Team 7, an elite division of the Australian Secret Intelligence Service who was plane-wrecked on Lian Yu and became a mentor and good friend of Oliver Queen and lover of Shado. Later though Slade would become an archenemy of Oliver as the mercenary named "Deathstroke".

Powers and AbilitiesEdit



  • Martial Arts: Slade is a highly skilled martial artist, performing lightning fast acrobatic attacks with minimal effort, then switching to slower, more calculated moves to trip up his opponents. Among the forms he knows is:
    • Eskrima: He also teaches this to Oliver.
  • Swordsmanship: Like his comics counterpart, Slade is highly skilled with a blade, wielding a katana in close quarter combat.
  • Survival
  • Firearms


  • Mental Illness: A side effect of the Mirakuru is that it causes the user to develop mental instability which causes Slade to go into fits of rage and impairs his sense of right and wrong. In addition, it appears that Slade believes himself to be controlled by the deceased Shado.[3] Though this instability may have been nullified when Oliver Queen injected him with the Mirakuru cure. [4]
  • Obsession: Everything Slade has done since escaping Lian Yu has been with the sole goal of ruining the life of Oliver Queen and then killing him.




  • Slade Wilson is played by Manu Bennett.
