DC Comics is launching a new storyline called The Terminus Agenda this week in Teen Titans, which will feature the Titans going toe to toe with Deathstroke. That would be a tall order for any team, including the Justice League, but now the Titans are going to give it a go. That means they'll be going against one of the DC universe's deadliest killers, and from a new solicitation for Deathstroke #44 it seems there will be casualties, but not necessarily the ones you're expecting. Be warned, spoilers are incoming, so if you don't want to know you can still turn back.
It appears it was a member of the Titans who took Slade Wilson's life, though the description of the next arc Deathstroke: RIP hints that we aren't sure who exactly killed him by series end. In addition to that mystery we also learn that the Legion of Doom crashes his funeral to get ahold of the body, though again we aren't sure exactly what they want with it.
Is Slade in possession of some data they want? Perhaps they want to clone the deadliest assassin on the planet, or maybe they have a way to revive him. Lots of possibilities here, but you can garner your own conclusions with the covers and official description below.
