Arguably one of the funnest books out there right now, and by funnest I mean down right face melting violence mixed with a little cynicism. In Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe, Deadpool‘s mind has been poked and prodded to see how he ticks one too many times. Now he’s in a battle of wits with himself, a schizofrenzy, yes I made that word up, that is leading him down a path of destruction. The destruction of everyone’s favorite heroes and villains, even Howard the Duck isn’t safe.
Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe #2 has our favorite snarky murder-for-hire now killing for himself, or what he thinks is himself anyway. Deadpool’s rampage runs through every Avenger you think without a doubt could destroy Deadpool, but ol’ hamburgerface proves to be more hardy and resilient than many would ever have expected.
I applaud Cullen Bunn for making Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe one of the most jaw dropping books out right now. I’m in love with the Avengers vs X-Men series, but for different reasons, I love DKTMU because it’s so unnervingly raw and ridiculously violent. The book spares no expense at making your favorite superheroes and villains look like complete jerk offs. So the “okay” art by Dalibor Talajic can be forgiven because seeing Deadpool ripped apart by the Hulk is so utterly amusing. I think something may be wrong with me.
Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe is quickly becoming one of my favorite series, it’s all I want to talk about when I’m not ranting and raving about AvX. You should probably go pick it up so you don’t look like a total dick.
For those that care I’ve created a kill count for issue #1 and #2 complete with names of the now deceased. Enjoy!
Deadpool “killed”: 3
Notables assassinated: The Fantastic Four, The Watcher, the Hulk, Spider-Man, Thor, Iron-Man, and presumably Wolverine.
Back to the Farm.
