“The Professional” part one! Deathstroke’s latest contract takes him to a war-torn African country, where he finds himself caught in the middle of a disintegrating alliance between a ruthless dictator and a deadly super-villain. With an entire nation at stake, Slade Wilson must choose between fulfilling his contract and saving an old friend.
Okay, this sounds a heck of a lot like what happened in the Rebirth #1, but I'll assume it's different because Clock King in his pajamas does not equal "super-villain" in my book. Seriously, he looked like a 100 year old reject from one of Eric's old sleepovers. You know, the famed, you bring the stuffed crust pizza and I'll bring Puppet Master 2 affairs that nobody wanted to be a part of. Poor little Eric Shea!
