1. Hey Greg, I've heard you ask what makes the Speed Force a special case, and why is there a speed force but not a strength force, etc. This is because the Speed Force isn't the force behind all speed and momentum in the universe. It is an extra-dimensional energy field that grants some people a connection to it's energy, giving them speed based powers. This is why people like superman are not connected to the speed force even though they have super speed. The Speed Force selects certain individuals. Not sure if this will help you understand the concept of the Speed Force any more than you already do, but I hope it did.

2. Does Deathstroke have any form of enhanced strength, speed, durability, agility, etc, like he does in the comics?

1. It STILL seems arbitrary. Why not a STRENGTH FORCE that chooses specific folks to have strength? An ACCURACY FORCE that chooses specific people to be great archers? It doesn't change any of my arguments against. But, hell, what do I know? When the concept of the meta-gene was first introduced to DC Comics, I had a similar negative reaction to the creation of something that explained something that required no explanation. And now the meta-gene is ALL OVER YJ. Does that make me a hyprocrite or someone who's opinion is constantly evolving... if slowly?

2. No spoilers.
