Gotta love Wintergreen, he's not evil, but by god I not want to be on his bad side.

Another great episode! "Temporary Insanity" haha.
I think you should post all your episodes as one story. You'll get more readers that way, and your writing deserves lots of readers. People are missing out.

I think in the comics, Private HIVE reformed
I do like that you say Jericho is tough, he can hold his own with his father himself so he must have an extremely advanced knowledge of hand to hand combat, remember after Batman incampasitated Slade (which he only did with the aid of his sidekicks) Bats was distracted for like a second and Slade escaped and left his sword as proof he could kill Bats whenever he wanted, remeber before Jericho joined the Titans he worked for his mother in freelance espionage/mercenary work so he's a good operative, remember Adeline was Slade's first Special Forces intrustor
That was awesome with Wintergreen
I always wanted to see the Wilsons be a happy family, Slade more antihero, perhaps an agent of Checkmate, Rose be Adeline's kid also along with Grant and Joey, Wintergreen their Alfred remember they may not be in their masters' league but they are highly trained soldiers and spies even if they are old, hordes of Slade's robot ninjas, and Slade have Rex the Wonderdog or an equally powerful wolf named Tarot
Kane is also Martha Wayne's maiden name and Batwoman's last name, the Gotham Kane's were one of Gotham's founding families, not sure if any are related but Batwoman's family and Adeline's family are both wealthy military families
Well, I like to think Slade thought he could kill him and save Joey, or that he'd slit his throat anyway
Slade does have a code of honor he doesn't act against U.S. interests unless his family threatened, he does love them very much, Slade spends most of his time going after enemies of the U.S. we just don't see it much
I will always prefer villains who at least have a point and frighteningly may even be right about everyone being better off under their benevolent dictatorship (of course make education great so the common man does know what is best for him and his children's children and democratic republicanism can work) like Ra's al Ghul if the environment isn't brought into balance no matter the means or cost the future for the human race will be worse than any dystopian fiction and will lead to the extinction of the human race not through misadventure but suicide through stupidity or Lex Luthor who as he says if he was calling all the shots could end famine and cure cancer and he could his mind is capable of anything perhaps give everyone ultra high-tech non polluting technology and maybe even superpowers (without the White Martians ancient experiments all humanity would be like the Kryptonians or Daxamites) lead humanity and the rest of the universe to unimaginable glory remember Red Son he united all humanity and led us to a golden age that lasted millions of years, no poverty, disease, war, crime, terrorism, or environmental problems and science and art advance, he’s about the advancement of the human race by any means necessary it’s not that he’s a good man he’s not but he’s right about most things he’s too smart not to be
A lot of villains seem unaware that if they used their mind and/or other talents for legitimate business causes or the government could be far more profitable than any crime spree
Luthor has fanatical Nietzschean beliefs, that Superman undermines humanity’s worth and accomplishments
Of course vigilantes can be sanctimonious hypocrites judging others and letting themselves go unscrutinized condemning others when they do the same thing for less reasons I think it is disgusting they don't share their scientific breakthroughs (of course inventors should be well compensated) with the scientific specifically medical community or their skills with law enforcement agencies far more good than beating up thugs and psychos fight crime at its source ignorance and poverty. I realize due to rarity and complexity mass production may not always be possible or at least cost effective and due to difficulty not all could take brutal training but a little bit could go a very, very long way. A hero doesn’t just save people a hero teaches the people to take care of themselves. The ability to think of future generations when calculating pragmatic utilitarianism is what separates us from the animals. The world is not the way it is because of thugs and psychopaths, corrupt businessmen/politicians (which contrary to fiction are the exception not the rule) but because most people are too stupid to know what is best for them the extreme left and extreme right get caught up in their ideals and refuse to acknowledge brutal facts of reality no real world understanding of the extreme complexities of politics, economics, technological logistics, and how they’re all interconnected in the long run. People want everything right here right now the whole world just handed to them on a silver platter think just by complaining something will happen without a tangible plan. Such a plan will require a lot of long, hard, boring work all day every day for generations.
There will always be some exploitation, the best and brightest will elevate themselves over the common man, it’s nature, best for the species, it improves the standard of living of the human race as a whole, as long as they don’t kill anyone or otherwise actively oppress, free trade and enterprise is the only thing that has ever led to long lasting meaningful peace
I'm glad the government has Suicide Squad, Cadmus, Checkmate, the Elite, Amanda Waller, and the new female Spy Smasher, Cameron Chase I don’t think there is anything wrong with wanting accountability from Superheroes, having checks and balances on these living breathing weapons of mass destruction seems quite reasonable to me, one will go left when they should go right and innocent people will die it WILL happen, not saying black ops don’t have their necessity, they can be used as a force of good
Have you heard of The Boys
Say you’re Harry Truman do you drop the bombs or do you drown the home islands in the blood of U.S. Marines, BATMAN has no answer to that question, people hire soldiers so they never have to use moral courage themselves
