Slade has superior physical strength and fighting skills that surpass Robin's, and also possibly Batman's. He is a bona-fide genius, with great knowledge in robotics,as well as military, political and subversive strategy.He seems to possess some knowledge of ceremonial magic (as seen in Forces of Nature). He appears to have access to extremely advanced technology and various secret hideouts,nearly unlimited resources, and a vast army of robot minions. However, Slade's most notable quality is that he is a master of manipulation and psychology, allowing him to get his foes to do almost anything he wants through shrewd manipulation.
no known weaknesses
Initially, Slade appears as a shadowy, unseen character, until in the episode "Masks", but Robin only manages to capture a robotic duplicate. In the "Apprentice" story arc, Slade forces Robin to join him by threating to use nanobots that he planted in the Titans to destroy them. In season two, Slade recruits and manipulates the superpowered girl Terra, with whom he manages to defeat the Teen Titans and take over the city. The Titans however, believed dead, return, and with help from Beast Boy, Terra is able to overcome Slade, and sends him to his doom in a lava pit. In the Season 3 episode "Haunted", Slade appears a figment of Robin's imagination, due to a chemical reagent released from his mask into Robin's body, which made him see, hear, and feel Slade. Robin is nearly killed, but in the end, he learns that it really isn't Slade, and discovers that light banishes the hallucination, which only worked in the dark. Oddly enough, it is revealed that this gas had been triggered from the outside.
Slade returns for season four as the servant of Raven's demonic father Trigon, who promises to give him back his flesh and blood body in exchange for his services, granting Slade almost God-like demonic powers, including a red mark on his forehead called the Mark of Skath, an alias of Trigon. However, Trigon goes back on the deal, and Slade helps the Teen Titans defeat Trigon after having recovered his flesh and blood. However, Slade manages to escape the Titans shortly thereafter. During Season Four, Slade shows something of a sense of humour, making jokes such as "Hello birthday girl, ready for your present?" and "I love my job". This is saying a great deal, because in the past, Slade has been an antagonist who dwells on a level of villainy that leaves no room for humour
Slade appears in the last episode of the series, "Things Change", when Beast Boy is searching for answers on why a newly revived Terra seems to have lost all memory of her past or superpowers. Slade confronts Beast Boy, denying anything to do with Terra's sudden return and stating that if Terra doesn't remember her past, it's because she doesn't want to remember and that he should leave her in peace. Infuriated by his speech, Beast Boy attacks Slade, only to find out that it's just another robot duplicate.
Although the connection is never stated in the course of the series, Slade's son Jericho is also introduced into the Teen Titans series during the series finale. His daughter Rose is also introduced in the animated series based comic book Teen Titans Go!; a painting of Slade, without his mask, is briefly seen in the comic book.
His face is not directly seen in the series, but at the end of the "Apprentice" two part episode, Robin destroyed half of Slade's mask, revealing greenish-black hair. After Slade and Robin tag-team to fight Trigon, one of Trigon's servants knocked off Slade's mask, revealing a skull was all that was left of Slade's face. Slade and Robin worked together to get Raven back. Raven went on to defeat her father,Trigon, and save the world. Although Slade escaped with his flesh replaced. It is not known where Slade went although its probable that he is currently devising a plan against the Teen Titans.
Slade is also known as Deathstroke the terminator in the comics
