The Sexuality Of Jericho, Deathstroke’s Son

Jericho is the son of Deathstroke.

When Marv Wolfman and George Pérez were creating the character for New Teen Titans, they considered whether to make him gay or not.

Pérez told the Gay League website “While Marv and I did discuss the possibility of Joseph Wilson being gay, Marv decided that it was too much of a stereotype to have the sensitive, artistic, and wide-eyed character with arguably effeminate features be also homosexual”.

During his time as a DC character, Joseph has had romantic connections with both Raven and Kole.

Well,  Christopher Priest is currently writing the Deathstroke comic book. And he’s taking this full on.

But that is not the end of the story. He may love Etienne…

21_16No, no he hasn’t told her.


That Jericho and Dr Ikon, Deathstroke’s armour designer, are a thing.

Pansexual? Bisexual? Jericho doesn’t like labels…
