Character Type: Secondary
AKA: Joseph W. "Joey" Wilson
Summary: Jericho is the youngest son of notorious bounty hunter, and long-time enemy supervillain, Slade Wilson (AKA Deathstroke). When he was a child, Jericho's throat was cut by one of his father's enemies, rendering him mute for the rest of his life. According to George Pérez, the original iteration of the character was not gay because Marv Wolfman decided "it was too much of a stereotype to have the sensitive, artistic, and wide-eyed character with arguably effeminate features be also homosexual." However, the DC Rebirth version of Jericho is now bisexual.
Titans has added another member of the Deathstroke family to its season 2 cast with Chella Man as Deathstroke's son Joseph Wilson, otherwise known as Jericho. Man joins the DC Universe series alongside Esai Morales, who will be playing his TV father Slade Wilson, who is more commonly known by his mercenary name Deathstroke. (Read more)
