The Doctrine of Deathstroke the Terminator!! Muahaha!!
Although I would like to see another Slade around 110-120 so I can fit him onto more builds. I'm still happy to see the different keyword and role options he's getting recently. Can't have enough Deathstroke love IMO lol

"The voices were calling me Bruce. That's not what I call myself."
"Well, what do you call yourself?"
"... The GD Batman."
Really excited to see more of this team base. It's definitely my number one want from my super booster when I pick up my brick. Managed to hedge Outlaws out the second I saw the reveal. I was a huge fan of this team.
Deathstroke looks pretty excellent, much like every other Deathstroke lately. I think this one might just be my favorite though. Great range with sharpshooter and high attack. Phasing with blades, not to mention regen. Manage to smack him around and not finish the job? Guess what I just jumped across the map and I'll be healing next turn. Sure hope you can keep up. Plus both of his white powers look great.
Osiris could be a bit better, but I still wouldn't mind playing him. Quite a lot of points for a prob piece, but I wouldn't mind keeping him in the back to support Deathstroke and if you land on one of those two sweet spot clicks you could hypersonic in, attack for a decent three damage or heal him before you make your escape. The best part is that even if you heal past having this power, you've still got hypersonic and you get SS back, so feel free to grab an item while you make your retreat.
SO MANY GOOD DEATHSTROKE PIECES. I like this guy marginally less than the streets of gotham guy as the abilities aren't quite as purely offensive. The leadership seems a little steep to me and I absolutely love the other guys three clicks of perplex followed by three clicks of outwit That twelve attack with four penetrating damage is gross though. And the two clicks of regen with indomitable makes him mighty tough to ko. If you get a few rolls with him he's formidable to say the least.
The osiris piece is interesting I guess, it's nice to see a semi-cheap prob controller who can handle a beating, nothing on scarlet witch/enchantress/constantine though, he's not efficient enough.

Reason: extra stuff
This is not only the best Deathstroke to-date, but very solid for only 148 points. The cost between SoG and TT versions is so negligible (1 point), with both being the best Modern Age versions, it's really a matter of secondary market value or chance determining which version most players can afford/use. Rare DS will fetch a higher price because of his additional ability to be included as part of a team dial.
Osiris improves upon the last versions, but it's a shame that he can't be used with 100 point Black Adam and Isis in any 300 point configuration-- an additional starting line at Click 5 (65 points) would have been sweet.
Well, he did say we know one prime in the set. That implies a lack of knowledge about the others.
No, it doesn't. At all. In any way. Not even a little bit. No, not even then. NO. Just...seriously, stop it. He simply observed that we could deduce one from the information presented by the information about the Deathstroke figure's numbering. Not know the FIRST one, not know the ONLY one, just know one because of information presented. Don't pick on someone for making an accurate observation/deduction by putting words in their proverbial mouth.
Advocate for full CSA remake and more Defenders! ...and would a 19DV Defender kill you while we're at it?
REClixed: Justice for Dmitri Pushkin (your sacrifice will not be forgotten)! New generic Rocket Red @50-75 points while we're at it?
That Deathstroke is ... beastly! As others have mentioned, I wish this Deathstroke wasn't so similar in cost to the SoG version; a shame since this version offers so much more.
Osiris is "meh", but his keywords are good and the Calculator TA makes him somewhat worthwhile.
But I think this death stroke is way than the sog one. Range of 8 with sharpshooter. and his leadership is the best. plus special supersense sick. I just hope I can make the defensive rolls solid so I can get that bonus damage and attack increase. The only thing that worries me about that power is if someone runs on you hyper sonic misses you then the run away and hide like a wuzz out of your range to charge or shoot.
Osiris So and so . Ca for both will open up alot of team options
It's awesome, but I would have preferred they stick one of these two in with the base so we could have had Cheshire in the main set instead.
Two thoughts on that...
1 - It's NECA, and they probably can't help themselves but to recycle sculpts, so I'm hoping Cheshire will be in the regular boosters also.
2 - On the other hand, if the only way to field the entire original TT line-up, or the New TT line-up, or even the complete Gen13 line-up, is to play the "random super booster" lottery, I am going to cancel my pre-order on this set. That would just be dumb.
