Slade Wilson and Tara Markov: A Love Story In this post I will be showing the classic romance of Slade Wilson and Tara Markov, by Marv Wolfman and George Perez.
First off is The New Teen Titans #34. Terra is upset that even though she's been with the Titans for several months, they've refused to tell her their secrets or treat her as a true equal.
Deathstroke is with his hostage when...
The other Teen Titans arrive.
Deathstroke battles them until...
Their story continues in The New Teen Titans #39. The Titans are battling Brother Blood's cult.
Later, Terra is with the Titans. Wally is leaving the team, and Dick is staying but retiring his Robin identity.
In Tales of the Teen Titans #42, Terra and Beast Boy are training.
In Tales of the Teen Titans #43 Dick is attacked by Deathstroke, who now knows his civilian identity. Dick manages to escape, and Deathstroke goes after him.
Dick tries finding the other Titans, but they've all been captured.
In Tales of the Teen Titans Annual #3 the rest of the Titans find themselves being held hostage by H.I.V.E.
Meanwhile, Jericho and Dick (now in his new Nightwing identity) are starting to invade H.I.V.E's fortress.
Deathstroke doesn't know Wintergreen is being held at gunpoint by Adeline.
Jericho and Nightwing are inside the fortress when...
The Jericho-possessed Deathstroke frees the rest of the Titans.
This is from Tales of the Teen Titans #55. It's written by Marv Wolfman and illustrated by Ron Randall.
Slade is on trial for kidnapping the senator back in #34, but he is able to get off by hiring a Deathstroke impersonator, causing doubt as to if he was the Deathstroke behind the kidnapping. In the end, the judge (Adrian Chase) is only able to sentence him to one year for the illegal possession of the firearms found in his penthouse apartment.
While in prison Slade is attacked by a vengeful Beast Boy, but he manages to escape. The next day he is released after some of the senators he did undercover work for cleared him of the gun charge.
Slade meets Beast Boy in the arranged spot, but not as Deathstroke. Slade refuses to fight back, and Beast Boy is unable to kill him.
