Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe

What if everything you thought was funny about Deadpool was actually just disturbing? What if he decided to kill everyone and everything that makes up the Marvel Universe? What if he actually pulled it off? Would that be FUN for you? The Merc with a Mouth takes a turn for the twisted in a horror comic like no other! Collecting DEADPOOL KILLS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE #1-4.

“…Maybe roast some marshmallows as all existence burns down around me.” *CAUTION: A FEW MILD SPOILERS AHEAD FOR THOSE WHO CARE*In an alternate universe overseen by the Watcher, a mad scientist named Psycho Man breaks Deadpool’s mind to create an army of broken souls but what he really does is unleash Deadpool’s rampaging murderer side. As Deadpool embarks to kill all the superheroes who think he’s loony or crazy, his first targets are the Fantastic Four. Utilizing Hank Pym’s Pym Particles, Arcade’s deathtraps, and even Puppetmaster’s power, along with his own, he takes down the entire Marvel roster as well as the universe itself! So, Deadpool pulls a Punisher and tries to kill everyone. His crafty nature allows him to utilize other weaponry but watching Deadpool slaughter the X-Men, Fantastic Four, the Avengers, etc. was very fun. Wolverine’s death was a bit lackluster though. Wolverine is “killed” once by Deadpool but comes back only to have his head cut off. However, Deadpool has his head blown off a few times in the comic and still comes back so I doubt Wolverine died. The references Wade makes to the Punisher’s similar comic were funny and the ending was pretty clever and funny but overall, the story’s just lacking. The art by Dalibor Talajic looks good and the writing for Deadpool’s dialogue is well done butCullen Bunn’s story is lacking. This is no Punisher Kills the Marvel Universe story here. Having Taskmaster track down Deadpool was a nice touch too but his demise was another letdown. The book is a softcover and slightly smaller than other softcovers being 9.9×6.4in. The paper’s cheap and flimsy and you get textless covers, a script and sketches, and a bunch of cover art sketches as well. The extras are there but the make of the book is shoddy. Overall, it’s a fun read but don’t spend a bunch of money on it.

Great product, but a little startled by Amazon’s shipping This book collects the 4 issues of the amazing, but way too short saga of Deadpool killing off virtually every hero and villain in the Marvel Universe in his quest to find his creators and end all of (fake) existence. Spectacular artwork, great story…a few WEAK deaths for uber-popular characters. All in all, outstanding book.That being covered, I’m sort of disappointed in whoever packaged this up for shipping. I don’t order comics online, because I prefer to keep them as mint as possible for collecting (yes, nerd here…hello?). However, I thought I’d be safe with a trade paperback. The person (or machine) that boxed this for me clearly has some spatial observation problem and thought that it would fit into a box significantly smaller than the book itself. Meaning about two inches at the top of my book were curled up the sidewall of the box, resulting in several creases across the cover. I don’t usually complain about such things, and Amazon has never really given me cause to…but in this case since I’ve elected to accept the item instead of asking for a replacement I felt I’d vent a bit here.Once again, a definite 5-star product, regardless of my shipping woes.

A little too short and a little too unsatisfying… If you’re like me and love Daniel Way’s recently-ended run on Deadpool, you probably won’t enjoy this story too much. The writing and dialogue is overstuffed and lacking in much of the same humor. Ultimately, I think what kills the book is its length; this series probably should have been a six-issue series to give Deadpool fans what they wanted. For a book titled “Deadpool Kills the Marvel universe”, most of the killing takes place between issues, including some great fights/deaths that would have been fantastic to see. Still, it’s a decent enough and quick enough read for a Deadpool fan. Just don’t expect the greatest piece of Deadpool writing you’ve ever seen.
