I figured since we covered Deathstroke yesterday that we would check out our other favorite merc with the last name Wilson. If you haven’t figured that out yet, we are talking about the one and only Merc with a mouth Deadpool. In 2015, Marvel brought Deadpool back, but in a very different way than probably what most fans were expecting. Deadpool is now one of the most beloved superheroes especially more than Spider-Man which is a total victory for Wade Wilson. He is also very wealthy, but where in the world is Deadpool as we speak? Why are their so many different guys like Foolkiller, Madcap, Solo, etc. dressing like Deadpool? What in the world is this heroes for hire company and what does it have to do with The Avengers? All of these questions are sort of answered in issue number one, but you just have to read the issue for yourself if you want to know. To find out more information about the issue like reading it or just finding out information on Marvel, ou can do so by visiting this link here.
As far as the story is concerned, I truly believe that this is a great start for the series because it’s sort of keeping you on your toes. You’re sitting there trying to figure out who the real Deadpool is and the story has you hooked to want to find out what happens next. Plus, you get some surprise appearances from various Marvel characters and you get an appearance from George Stephanopoulos in the comic book as he is trying to interview Deadpool. One of my favorite sequences that best represents Madcap is this one scene where he is being interrogated by the police. You have to read it for yourself to find out what I mean. The artwork for the comic is phenomenal and while it’s traditional looking in a modern way, it’ll catch your eye. The panels are actually very easy to read and follow so you won’t have trouble reading it. Marvel has a gold mine with Deadpool that they will continue to expose with all the different series and miniseries that are out there. I am excited to read issue number two and you can be sure that I will share with all of you. For now check out my grades below:
Character Representation: A+
Entertainment Value: A+
