  • Writer: Gerry Duggan
  • Artist: Mike Hawthorne
  • Colorist: Jordie Bellaire
  • Cover Artist: Rafarl Albuquerque & Dave McCaig

DP #17

The partnership between Deadpool and the Mercs for Money has completely deteriorate, and being looked in a bank fault with the mercs, the tension has reach its end and the mercs find themselves in a battle royal, filled with witty and funny dialog the fight seems more like a joke then anything, but from the outside in it looks really bad considering the group is destroying public property like it’s nothing.

Finally S.H.E.I.L.D agent Emily Preston comes in and arrest’s everyone, with massive damage done to the city of Podunk, New Jersey Preston tells Deadpool he’s going to pay for all the damages, before leaving Preston warns Wade about the trouble he is causing and how it’s going to affect his Avengers status.

In custody the mercs ask Deadpool to lie about the damage done, and in court he tells the judge Kang was the reason they fought. The judge buys his story and frees them but under the condition he and the others must never come back to New Jersey, outside the court house Wade tells them they’re contracts are over and if he runs into any of them while on a mission he’ll take them out.  Now that the Mercs for Money is disbanded Wade heads over to agent Preston’s home for Sunday dinner but is rejected with a punch in the face from Emily.

The issue concludes with Wade heading back to his and Shiklah love pad and is surprise to find Jack the Wolf-Man, without saying anything he grabs his shotgun and shots Wolf-Man man despite Shiklah’s doubt he would do so.

Conclusion:  Not really much was going on is this issue besides the wrapping of the merc’s for money arc, like most Deadpool comics it’s filled with wise cracks and over the top action, one interesting note is what Preston said Deadpool. Will his actions eventually catch up to him and causes more friction between him and the Avengers?. Hopefully writer Gerry Duggan will focus on that later in any upcoming issues.

Review – Spider-man/Deadpool #2 (2016)

Writer: Joe Kelly
Artist: Ed McGuinness

Published by: Marvel Comics

...is your boss Peter Parker an evil genius or just an evil villain? Mostly that last one

Someone wants Peter Parker dead and they hired the merc with the mouth to do it, While Deadpool is willing to take out Parker, he doesn’t wanted to do it without having a legitimate reason. Whoever is behind this contract on Peter Parker’s head has a serious beef with him, the evidence they have sent to Deadpool was enough for him to accept the job, but Deadpool is not as gun hoe now as he was in the past, and so he confronts Spider-man not knowing that their one in the same, Deadpool asks for his help.
Peter Parker on the other hand is still getting used to being a CEO and the press that comes along with it, his company presents their newest tech that has something to do with biorhythmic monitoring, After the presentation Parker hits the streets city and comes across Deadpool and Spider-Man (Morales) having it out about who’s the real Spider-Man, Peter interrupts and the three of them have it out, but out of nowhere the Goblin Nation attacks and the Spider-Men assume Deapool is in league with them, in actuality Green Goblin is not attacking them, it seems while they were fighting someone or something hit them with an unknown toxin. Deadpool finally gets them to settle down and the three of them figure out, someone has hacked the webware network connected to his biometric interface and reverse the process, usually the device compiles information for the user, now it was used to project information into the user’s brain.

At one of the labs of Parker industries it appears Mysterio is behind the hack, his plan is to have the people turn on Parker, and just as he’s about to finish his monologue speech Deadpool and company crash in and like deadpool fashion runs over Mysterio. Deadpool surprises everyone when he does CPR on unmasked Quentin Beck.

When it’s all done the two part ways and Deadpool continues to investigate the Lab, he walks into a run and sees a bunch doctors experimenting on arm and leg less people, they first mistake him for Parker, but so quickly realized that it’s Deadpool. Feeling deceived Deadpool attacks everyone in the room, He then calls a man called Patient Zero and informs him that he’s all in on taking down Peter Parker.

Conclusion: Surprisingly this arc isn’t as comedic I anticipated it to be but it still has its moments, while Deadpool isn’t the wisecracking psycho he normally would be, I like that fact he has a more serious side. When Spider-Man (Parker) and Deadpool are tracking the signal of the hacker, peter tries to apologies but Deadpool doesn’t really accept it, instead he just gives him a “whatever” and they keep tracking the signals location, Again for me I like that about this version of Deadpool. The reveal of Deadpools employer was nice surprise, makes me wonder how he’s going to react in the upcoming issues when he finds Spider-Man and Peter Parker are the same.

Review: Uncanny Avengers #4 (2015)

Writer: Gerry Duggan

Artist: Ryan Stegman

Cover Arist: Richard Isanove

Published by: Marvel Comics

The Uncanny Avengers save Boston from destruction, but at what cost? The finale of the first arc has devastating consequences for one Avenger.

UNCANNY AVENGERS (2015) #4
Courtesy of Marvel.com

The begin of issue #4 we get a flashback of Emily Guerrero (Synapse) and her grandfather Ivan Guerrero (Shredded Man) when the Mist hits there home, Emily is confused and scared but Ivan is more acceptable to the change and is already dead set on becoming a hero, It just back to the present time and now Emily who is now Synapse is on her knees crying before Ivan aka Shredded Man asking him to stop the destruction and chaos he’s caused but lvan refuses and they start to battle it out, Meanwhile Deadpool and Rouge are taking out the infected animals, a funny moment happened when Deadpool asks Quicksilver to get him more weapons from his armory, instead he runs to a local gun store and brings not only the weapons but also the owner of the store, he and Deadpool shake hands and the two pick up guns and start taking out the creatures.

Back in the lab Torch and company are finishing up Cable’s serum for the Terrigen Mist outbreak, Quicksliver drops in and asks if the serum is ready and from there we see him blazing to every man and woman infected by the mist and giving them a shot of the cure. We jump to Cable and Rouge who are still fighting, cable gets a psychic flash and sees a vison of Synapse taking out Shredded Man causing a catastrophic event, just when it looks as if she’s going take him out Cable teleports in and takes her down before she can, the starts to reason with her stating that her actions will causes more damage to the city, Cable surprises them both when he instead shoots down Synapse, she goes on to tell him that she knows he still is the grandfather she always knew, but also didn’t want to die with the shame of what he’s done, so as a gift for his granddaughter he uses his powers to stop it all. But not without telling Synapse that his love for her is gone and the next time they meet he’ll have no mercy for her and with the last bit of his power escapes.  In fear of what the others my say, Synapse pleads with Cable to not say anything about her connection with the Shredded Man.

When Deadpool and the others arrive back to Boston, Cap asks Cable if he’s going to stick around, and Cable first says no, but quickly changes his mind when Cap tells him the next mission is to take down Red Skull and retrieve Professor Xavier’s brain.

The issue ends on what you could consider a cliffhanger when we see Hank Pym saving some people from an Alien attack, the interesting thing about rescue is that he’s not in his typical Ant-Man get-up but instead a new exo-design suit that he says is Ultron.

Conclusion:  There’s a lot of subplots within this arc that could turn into something interesting later on, but for right now it looks as if the main plot is over, we see a lot of emotional turmoil in Synapse, at one point she gives up physically because the emotional drain, her character development and story was the focal point in the issue, with that said I’m curious to see where Duggan takes this story now that the big bad is out the picture.

Review – Deadpool #1 (2015)

Writer: Gerry Duggan
Artist: Mike Hawthorne
Inker: Terry Ballot
Cover: Val Staples
Published by: Marvel ComicsDeadpool Variant #1

In Duggan’s Deadpool #1 we get to see just how impactful deadpools recent claim to fame has really changed the people’s view of him, his celebrity status has made him even more popular then Tony Stark aka Iron Man and Spider-Man, with his new fame comes more job opportunities, whether it be appearing at a bar mitzvah or interviewing for his own red carpet theater show, Deadpool has become a house hold name. Because of the new demands of being the new “IT”, Deadpool has started now “Deadpools Heroes for Hire” a clear reference to Luke cage’s “Heroes for Hire”, his team of heroes are similar to that of the Deadpool Corps. They take care of the missions and media appearances while he does whatever he wants, and throughout the issue we see, for most part how it works.

They also make reference of him being part of the Avengers, Duggan has intertwine this arc with the The Uncanny Avengers (2015) on going run, when Deadpool starts his interview at with George Stephanopoulos, Rogue walks in and is greeted by Deadpool and George, he asks her if she would like to comment on the recent Terrigen Mists outbreak to which she frowns and fly’s away. The Comedic aspect of the issue shine when Deadpool starts lieing about being in part of the Heroes for Hire, as Luke Cage and wife Jessica Jones look on,and angry Luke Cage calls Matt Murdock and asks if he can get in touch with the Punisher so he can take out Deadpool, other characters like Sabertooth along with his wife Shiklah, S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Scott Adsit and Emily Preston also see and comment on his interview, all of them are surprised at how sane Deadpool has now become and for 25 pages it looks as if Deadpool is new and improved, but that comes to question when we see him shoot Don Anderson in his office letting us know that his still the same old shoot first ask question later Deadpool.

Conclusion:  Although he isn’t the same insane Deadpool we are used to seeing, we do see that he’s still annoying and He’s still dangerous, what I enjoyed was the reactions of other characters when he was being interview, everything he saying was clearly a lie which I found to be the most funny part of the issue, as a whole this arc is starting off really well.

Review – Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe #2 – Part 2 (2012)

Writer: Cullen Bunn
Artist: Dalibor Talajic
Colors: Lee Loughridge
Letters: VC’s Joe Sabino
Cover Artist: Kaare Andrews
Published by: Marvel Comics

Deadpool is on a killing spree, making a simple game of destroying the Fantastic Four and the villain who attempted to take control of his mind for his personal gains. Issue 2 of Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe continues down the rampage and his inner inner voice that keeps driving him right now.

It’s an ugly scene, Deadpool has left countless villains to their death and even heroes along with the chaos, he’s a walking executioner that seems invulnerable to any attack and makes any opponent victory into his own advantage. It’s really scary in a sense and at this point our guide The Watcher is no longer with us either, he’s actually just demolishing everything in his path. The Avengers act as the spotlight for this issue, their members slain and their hope shattered to send them into hiding, unfortunately no amount of hiding or numbers will be enough for someone this over the edge.

The issue is pretty brutal and those in the younger age brackets that are sensitive to graphic material or really adore their heroes should really just avoid this one. He goes heads up with everyone and while the intensity of the kills range in graphic nature, it’s still really hard-hitting to see your favorites torn apart by a guy with everything in his head just jingling around. Fortunately every action has a reaction, those who were married or close to the departed have summoned their own hero if you want to label him that. An old rival and ally of Deadpool comes into the scene to cash in on the maniac rampage going on in the world and it’s going to heat up.

Published by: Marvel Comics

There are many instances of What-If? In the Marvel Universe, of entire teams never existing, of heroes gone horribly wrong and so many other topics. This month we see a twist on that, a violent twist at that where only one character can possibly be responsible. Yes Deadpool is back and he’s murdering everyone.

It’s not so bad though, the story opens and we see that one famous Marvel family is out of the running but it’s not a far enough drop back into history so we go deeper and into the origin of this massacre or what sparked it entirely. The Watcher is our guide to the tale and it’s a pretty messed up one at that. We all know Deadpool isn’t all there, we all know that he can get a little crazy when money comes into the situation and that even in his worst times he can be brought down.

Instead of shooting him off to a new dimension, the X-Men opt to send him to a doctor for a special set of trials to “fix” his mind from all this destruction and violence. As with any Deadpool scenario, it gets bad fast and it’s only a bigger mess as he continues to fix it or make sense of it. Buildings will burn, bodies will fall, people will melt into unrecognizable puddles of… stuff… and Deadpool will become the nightmare killer we never really saw coming. We’ll have the issue 2 coverage up shortly so if you’re curious how bad it keeps getting, we’ll give you some hints without ruining the details.
