The Versus series from DC is usually fun from the fan point of view, pitting heroes or villains against each other that you wouldn’t normally see fight. This week’s Versus is slightly different in that I think it would make for one hell of a mini-series / graphic novel… I’d happily pay to read a Deadshot vs Deathstroke series done in an over-the-top John Wick style action thriller. Both characters have been portrayed as the villain and as the anti-hero and have a lot of fans of their own. The fun could come from how their weaknesses contradict. Floyd Lawton is lethal killing machine with a deep set deathwish that will push him to do some crazy things. Slade Wilson is a master tactician and assassin that can strategize a way to defeat almost any opponent… as long as they are acting rational. Deadshots willingness to die could through Deathstroke off completely. It would be a very fun series to read.
