Spoiler Warning! Deathstroke's Titans Kill a Superhero in Titans: Villains for Hire #1?

Obituaries seem to be the thing to do today, as I write one up for the first victim of Deathstroke’s new team of Titans: Villains for Hire.

Deathstroke was hired to kill Ryan Choi, known to most as The All New Atom introduced in DC’s “Brand New World” one shot in 2006. Based on a redesign of the Atom created by Grant Morrison, Gail Simone did the leg work on his series, which ran for twenty-five issues.

Ryan was last seen in the debut issue of Cry for Justice, teaming up with the Ray Palmer Atom….Ray was encouraging Ryan to continue being the Atom.

Ryan fought the villainous Titans valiantly, before being impaled on Deathstroke’s sword. His corpse was then delivered to Dwarfstar, the client who hired to do the deed.

August 2006 - May 2010
