As the cosplayers and fans cover the con floor today at C2E2, Christopher Priest, famed writer of Black Panther as well the current arc of DC and their current lead writer of Deathstroke, as well as artist Carlo Pagulayan stepped onto the Syfy stage to talk about the newest 6 issue arc of Deathstroke. Where Batman and Slade Wilson come to blows as the parentage of Damian Wayne comes into question.
As this panel began, Christopher Priest kicked it off by asking the audience who they thought Robin’s father was, the majority of them shouted Deathstroke…oh dear…Looks like we need to talk about that soon…anyway. After gauging the audience’s response, he admits he really doesn’t have control over the result to the point DC Comics themselves haven’t even told him the truth yet. So Priest pleads with fans to make their voices heard and tell DC through social media, email, and sales if they want their choice. Giving credence to the idea again that fans have more of a voice in this industry than they believe.
