If it worked the first time around, then it will probably work the second time around, right? This is just the rehashing of the same idea. No work was done here. But let’s see for ourselves, shall we?
The cover art has Deadpool holding up paper dolls that are colored in so they look like different heroes…Iron Fist, Captain America, Spider-Man, Wolverine, and the Punisher is there too and he’s about to get his paper head chopped off by a pair of scissors Deadpool is holding. WHO THINKS OF THIS STUFF? GENIUSES.
The story begins with Gambit laying on a table, white faced, full of blood and with a sword sticking right through him. There are two detectives speaking out of page about his death. From the context of their conversation one of the people investigating this crime is an X-Man.
In the next scene Deadpool and some X-Men, who are technically the Avengers, are fighting M.O.D.O.K. Wow that was really annoying to type. He should delete some of those periods from his name. Anyways Deadpool freezes mid-fight into some sort of trance while M.O.D.O.K claims that Deadpool is under his control. But he murders him, and then goes on to murder all of his teammates…accidentally. He’s all mind-controlled or something and thinks his teammates are actually his enemies. Oops. THere also seems to be a printing mistake in my book. Anyone elses book have this? It’s supposed to be a continued scene spread over two pages but they make it front to back. Makes little to no sense. Maybe this book will get recalled or something and I’ll be the owner of some editor’s fuck-up that is eventually worth $100,000 … or like $1,000,000 because inflation and the future. YAY IM RICH!
So lots of heroes are dead and everyone is whining about it and they’re calling him “a serial killer.” And he murdered a bunch of people and he left a calling card of his symbol emblazoned on the floor, so he definitely fits the profile. I think they have their first suspect. Oh I should probably mention the B-list characters who are hunting him are The Punisher, Kate Bishop, Misty Knight, Jessica Jones, Cable and Moon Knight. AMAZING DETECTIVE WORK.
Deadpool is back home…or his airbnb…idk where he is. He’s having more illusions…like getting a special assignment from Nick Fury.
Meanwhile over at the Aegean Sea, a bunch of Gods and Demi-Gods have gathered together in a group like a bunch of sheep waiting to get eaten by a wolf.
And the wolf appears in a toga, he plays a little volleyball- but oh no that is not a volleyball it’s actually medusa’s head and he accidentally or on purpose turns everyone to stone.
The group of B-list detectives break into Deadpool’s stinky Airbnb and look for clues. They find a book full of files on the weaknesses of superheroes, and immediately know that’s our guy. However, Jessica finds a note from Deadpool that spells out “Help Me” in noodles. COINCIDENCE?! Jessica does not think so. Someone is controlling Deadpool and forcing him to murder all the heroes. YIKES
And if you turn the page, which I did, I found out that Deadpool is UNDER someone else’s control. AND if you turn that page you find out who it is!
Lovely! Can’t wait until Issue #2 when he murders Spider-Man!
What did you guys think of this one? How does it differ from the other Deadpool kills the Marvel Universe? And has anyone picked up Squirrel Girl beats up the marvel universe?
