Deadpool has always been the focus of many weird and bizarre comic book arcs. He has been the star of Deadpool kills the Marvel Universe where Wade Wilson personally leads the mission of literally killing every superhero and villain in the superhero universe in the comic books. There was Marvel Zombies where Deadpool was just a floating head but his level of on-point sarcasm and fourth wall breaking antics were on a cosmic level. And who could really forget the bizarre Deadpool Corps which starred every Deadpool from every major universe which also included Dogpool – it is exactly what it sounds like. And now, Marvel Comics has put Wade in yet another too damn hilarious comic book issues. In this one-shot comic book arc, Wade is the one who killed Batman’s parents and made Bruce Wayne into an orphan.
So basically Deadpool is the reason Batman exists. Hilariously awesome, ain’t it???
The previous arc featuring Deadpool called Despicable Deadpool ended on a tragic note, with Wade erasing his own memories and starting afresh. The next series begins with Deadpool #1 where He tries to carve an origin story for himself. But he doesn’t just want any run of the mill story arc to serve as how his character was born. So he decides to pay a visit to several sympathetic story arcs of major Superheroes of both DC and Marvel like Superman and Spiderman.
Wade Wilson eventually ends up in a dark, humid alley. The comic book portrays Wade as a kid walking down the alley with his parents when someone shows up and shoots the couple in cold blood. The Kid is spared by the killer. It is then that it is revealed That Wade is not the kid but the guy who killed the Kid’s parents. Neither Batman nor Bruce Wayne is mentioned in the panel but the resemblance is uncanny. Wade ended up killing Thomas and Martha Wayne and drove Bruce Wayne to become Batman and fight crime as the World’s greatest detective!!!
It is later realized by the readers that it is not just some figment of imagination Deadpool had conjured up while formulating an origin story arc. It is actually memories of his past. Perhaps that couple was on Wade’s Hit List and Wade was paid to kill the Kid’s parents and clear a path for someone else. But it looks like that story still hasn’t seen the end. The Kid, as it turns out, has taken Wade’s advice to heart. And instead of becoming the Bat style Vigilante, he has become someone else. He has become something else far more dangerous. And he is coming for Wade’s head, both literally and metaphorically.
Deadpool #1 has been a wakeup call for Marvel comics on several accounts. After Marvel Comics fledgling sales and little to almost zero profit in the last quarter, things are finally catching steam with new and rather experimental comic book issues. The Deadpool issues are one of the only superheroes whose names are making the comic books sell like hot cakes. What else can Marvel conjure up in the future. Wade is not just the only trick up their sleeve.
They also have other anti heroes like Namor and Wolverine that are also going to star in their own comic book miniseries. Wolverine was killed off at the end of the September 2014 story arc Death of Wolverine. He has since been resurrected and will be coming back to Marvel Comics pages as the clawed maniac in Return of Wolverine that is being headed by Chris McNiven and Charles Soule. While that might take a while to hit the retail and digital stores, you can still enjoy Deadpool #1 and the general wackiness of Wade Wilson. Deadpool #1 is already in stores.
