Titans: The Wilson family is coming to season two


Titans beware, Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke the Terminator is making his debut in season two, and he’s not alone.

Since debuting on DC Universe as its flagship program, Titans hasn’t disappointed. The live-action adaption of DC Comics’ Teen Titans did a great job taking characters and arcs from the comics and putting them into the series.

There was a family aura surrounding the first season of Titans, and it will bleed over into season two. According to That Hashtag Show, the Wilson family is coming. Deathstroke, Ravenger, and Jericho will all appear at some point in season two:

"“A casting call indicated that Deathstroke’s son, Joe, aka Jericho, would also make an appearance…. Joe isn’t the only member of the Wilson family to appear as both Deathstroke and Ravenger are joining the second season of the show.”"

The addition of Slade and Joe Wilson isn’t a surprise, as Jim Lee and Geoff Johns putting the news out there last October. However, don’t expect to see the same version of Deathstroke from the Arrowverse. Titans will take some of Slade’s comic book origins and add its own spin to it:

"“Slade Wilson, a military man with a family but whose demanding nature tore that family apart…. A dedicated and patriotic solider, Slade is forced into early retirement by the military, setting him on a path of vengeance on those who he believes betrayed him.”"

How the Titans ended up on this universe Slade’s radar, one guess — Ravager.

Who is Ravager?

More from News

There were two versions of Ravager in DC Comics. The first is Grant Wilson, the eldest son of Slade Wilson and Adeline Kane. Grant Wilson’ s life is directly impacted by the Titans. Starfire accidentally wrecked his apartment at one point.  Later, she and Wonder Girl embarrassingly scared him away in front of an ex-girlfriend, thus adding fuel to the fire that was his hatred.

The secret organization, HIVE, contacted Grant with an offer to help him take down the Titans. They injected Grant with a serum granting superhuman abilities, giving birth to Ravager. Unfortunately, complications from the serum led to Grant’s death.

His father, Slade, vowed to complete the contract Grant had with HIVE to deliver them the Titans. In the comics, Slade received help from his daughter Rose, the new Ravager.

The Judas Contract

If it’s Rose, the addition could mean we’ll see “The Judas Contract” play out in live-action. In the pages of DC Comics, Rose Wilson joins the Teen Titans as Terra.

As Terra, Rose hides her true identity to infiltrate the team. The popular story arc titled, The Judas Contract,” saw Rose successfully betray the Titans.

How Jericho fits in is interesting. Unlike his father and sister, he’s not as angry. Jericho is mute, often described as kind with a supernatural ability to control those he comes in eye contact with.

After the Titans are captured, Adeline (Slade’s ex) offers her son, Jericho’s, service to Nightwing. Together, the three of them freed the Titans. Adeline would ask that Nightwing accept Jericho onto the team, and he did so reluctantly.

Long term plans for Jericho

Jericho also plays a major role in the battle with Raven’s father, felt Trigon. In the first season of Titans, Trigon’s (Seamus Dever) true powers or physical form aren’t displayed. However, Trigon’s ability to destroy a planet is discussed in season one. So, the team will likely need Jericho’s help, heck maybe the entire Wilson family.
