Summary. The animated adaptation of the comics Deathstroke: Vengeance follows the life of John Diggle, a former policeman who was transformed into a death-dealer after he accidentally killed his son in a car accident. The second series of the show, Deathstroke: The Animated Series, offers the audience another chance to learn about the origins of this deadly killer before the series ends. Summary: An ungainly animated script brings down Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons, but its incessant bloody climax and focused on underrepresented characters help it be a good change of pace and a good introduction for DC's ever-growing animated series.
It is interesting that the creators of the animated Deathstroke: The Animated Series wanted to offer the viewers a good and meaningful introduction to this character in the form of a spin-off. It was obvious from the very beginning that the creators of the animated series had planned to make it an animated film with a prequel and sequel. In this way, Deathstroke will be able to have a longer story arc, which will also be more interesting, since he will have been through many different events during his time in comic books.
It is hard to say whether this spin-off is better than the original comic book Deathstroke: The Animated Series or the prequel, but this new series has a lot to offer. The new show does not only take place on Earth, where Deathstroke is also featured, but it also takes place in the realm of the future. This is interesting because the creators of the show want to create a parallel between the characters of the Deathstroke comic books and the ones who appear in this show.
Unlike the earlier animated series, which only focused on the main story of Deathstroke and how he got to London, this new show also focuses on what happened before he began his career as a death dealer. It is therefore very interesting that the creators of the Deathstroke: The Animated Series did not leave out the other characters, especially those who were not involved in the previous series. The creators of this show also give us the opportunity to see how different people react to a killer who seems to have a unique way of doing things.
Another interesting thing about this series is that its producers decided to create a spin-off of the same title, which will be aired concurrently with the premiere of the original Deathstroke: The Animated Series. This spin-off will feature different characters and storyline, and even different villains. It will also be set in the future. Since the main plot of this show is set in the present, this spin-off is not likely to focus on the same issues that were previously discussed in the previous series. However, the creators of the spin-off, who are known to have worked on the previous series, may make this one a more interesting adaptation, because they are now more experienced in creating an original storyline.
In the end, the creators of this animated movie hope that viewers will enjoy watching the Deathstroke: The Animated Series because it will provide the audience with a better insight on the history of the character. As a fan of this animated series, I am happy to know that the movie has managed to maintain the charm of the comic books, while adding more twists to his past. If you are looking for something interesting to watch in the world of DC, then I suggest you give this series a chance. I am sure that you will also enjoy this spin-off, although you may feel like there is no need for you to watch the comic books. if you don't have any interest in Deathstroke at all.
