reasons why christopher priest should be the only person who writes deathstroke
priest: he’s a villain! get used to it! he’s a bad guy, he’s going to do crappy things.
priest: i don’t know if i can say this or not –you know you can bleep me out but slade –deathstroke– he’s an ASSSSHOLLEEE.
priest: we’re writing him as a villain, you know he’s a BAD guy. *shrugs* but you know, he loves his children!
priest: i can write him if you let me write him like marv used to write him –as this incredibly terrible person who would do incredibly terrible things not only to his enemies but to his friends.
priest: wintergreen becomes more of his (slade’s) moral compass. and will call him to account on certain situations and deathstroke will take/allow that from wintergreen whereas he would just– he thinks everyone else is pretty much an idiot.
priest: when he’s (wintergreen) not around –when deathstroke is not within wintergreen’s sphere of influence, then he becomes that much more of a jerk, and that much more dangerous.
interviewer: so any final thoughts on coming back to comics in a way and picking up on a high profile character like this?
priest: ………he’s a high-profile character?!
