The coming monstrosity with Deadpool

As though it weren't awful enough that Marvel once produced a horrid story called Punisher Kills the Marvel Universe, now they're producing another miniseries called Deadpool Kills the MCU:
The title will see Deadpool kill the Avengers, followed by the X-Men and the Punisher.

"As soon as [editor Jordan D White] mentioned this project to me, I knew this would be my chance to present a version of Deadpool unlike anything fans have seen before," [Cullen] Bunn told Comic Book Resources.

"He's still Deadpool. He's still funny. But he's being seen through a dark, unsettling filter.
It's not funny, and all they're doing is enforcing a numbingly wrongheaded perception of Deadpool as an assassin. And Bunn's only sounding like Garth Ennis: as a writer who hates superheroes so much he's willing to draw up a hatefest of a story about them. I don't see Marvel gaining new audience with this.

This just sounds completely stupid. That is definitely NOT why I started reading comics back in the day, to see superheroes get slaughtered for shock value.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
