Plot

In flashbacks, Slade Wilson is saved by an experimental drug following an accident from which he develops abilities (including super strength, enhanced agility, and regeneration) which he decides to use to become the mercenary "Deathstroke" with the help of his friend William Wintergreen. Slade then marries general Adeline "Addie" Kane who together have a son named Joseph. While on a mission in Cambodia as Deathstroke, he meets a woman named Lillian who he falls in love with. Unbeknownst to Slade, after he leaves completing his mission, Lillian gives birth to their daughter Rose who becomes orphaned after her mother dies in a hit and run. Ever since, Rose has lived alone until she is rescued by a mysterious man named Jackal, leader of the secret organization known as H.I.V.E., who trains her to one day become his successor. In the present-day, Joseph is kidnapped by Jackal. Slade returns home from one of his Deathstroke missions where he finds an angered Addie after she had discovered his Deathstroke identity from which Slade kept a secret from his family. Slade promises to bring back Joseph and hunts down Jackal at his base of operations. There, Slade is confronted by Jackal's agents Bronze Tiger and an unnamed woman. Slade kills the woman but his arm gets locked by Tiger. Slade breaks free from Tiger's arm lock and heads to kill Jackal. Just before Slade can rescue Joseph, his throat is sliced making him mute. After Joseph becomes hospitalized, Addie breaks up with Slade for Joseph's safety. Kane then isolates Joseph at a private school to hide him from Slade.

Ten years later, Slade continues operating as Deathstroke. One night, he is contacted by the H.I.V.E. Queen - H.I.V.E.'s new leader - who has Joseph hostage for his physic abilities, which he inherited from Slade. This reunites him with Adeline, who wants to join Slade in rescuing Joseph but Slade is reluctant. Before Slade leaves, Adeline shares a kiss with him. Slade's hunt for the Queen leads him to Colonel Kapoor, a former agent of H.I.V.E. He gains intel from Kapoor taking him to Kaznia where he confronts Tiger, now a freelancer. During their confrontation, Tiger reveals that Jackal is alive and the Queen is located at the Kerguelen Islands. Wintergreen takes Slade there whereupon arrival is attacked by Sandra Woosan / Lady Shiva. Slade surrenders and is taken to the Queen. The Queen reveals she had trained Joseph to use his abilities as a weapon known as "Jericho". Slade rescues Joseph who reveals he has joined H.I.V.E. as Jericho and that the Queen is actually his daughter Rose, his sister. Slade is shot into the ocean but refuses to die and so uses his regeneration powers. Addie fishes him out revealing she had placed a tracking device, provided by Wintergreen, through a kiss they shared earlier. Slade tells his affair with Lillian to Addie. Rose informs Jackal about Slade's supposed death, pleasing him and allowing them to continue their plan. She then later bonds and trains with Jericho. Jericho's powers become out of control but Rose stops him. Slade, Addie, and Wintergreen discover H.I.V.E.'s plan to use Jericho's abilities to control the world.

Jackal conducts a series of coordinated attacks across the United States as a distraction to lure the president out. However, Rose and Jericho betray Jackal believing Jackal had manipulated them into becoming rogue. Rose orders Jericho to use his abilities to take Jackal's mind but Jackal had prepared and fights back. Slade and Addie then board the plane and confront Jackal and Shiva. Shiva holds Rose and Jericho hostage with Jackal blackmailing Slade to which one dies first. Instead, Slade heads to fight Jackal while Addie fights Shiva but Rose kills her. During Slade and Jackal's fight, Jackal reveals that the woman who Slade killed while rescuing Joseph from him was Jackal's daughter hence why he took Slade's children under his wing. Just before Jackal uses his armor's powers to kill Slade, Slade redirects the blast leaving an opening in the plane prompting Slade and Jackal to fall out of it. While falling, Slade places a bomb on Jackal, killing them both.

Back home, Jericho remembers the story "Knights & Dragons" Slade read to him as a child. Addie officially welcomes Rose into the Wilson family. At a beach elsewhere, Slade's body is washed up and appears to still be alive.
