Isn't this a murder stomp? That would be Carnage flaying the flesh from DP's skeleton in under 3.5 seconds.

How is this even a fair match-up?

Also, Carnage-Deadpool please!!

Edited by derf_jenkins

At this point there should just be an ongoing series titled "Deadpool's Odd Tales" that is written by Bunn.

I know the moment when carnage realizes that he cant actually kill deadpool will be funny.

Because it's a comic book and not the battles forum. I agree Carnage should wipe the floor with Deadpool because of his durability and strength, but that's not to say it can't be entertaining and Bunn can generate ways to make Wade get the better of Cletus (location, prep, etc).

R.I.P to all the civilians who will die in this comic.

Gosh dang, that art looks like such freakin' fun.

Another mini about Carnage getting owned by someone who kinda looks like Spider-Man. How interesting....

Has Carnage been in a monthly Spidey comic even once since that story where he got a new symbiote from the N Zone?

Posted by reaperOnyx

I bought Superior Carnage and saw this in the back. I want to read it so bad.

Posted by w0nd

are his weaknesses still sound and fire? I mean as strong as symbiotes are they weaknesses are causes by things involved in super powered battles...fires and loud sounds, plus deadpool has some pretty sweet weaponry. I think it will be a fun issue.

Deapool always gets torn to shreds in fights. It just doesn't stop him, and he pretty much always out smarts his opponent. That's why I find Deadpool so boring now. He's quickly becoming as predictable as Batman.

@teerack: True, still it's going to be highly entertaining to have these two rabid dogs locked in a cage against each other, wouldn't you agree?

Eh.

I hate how this is $4. Rediculous...but I'll cave and buy it since it has 2 of my favorite characters going head-to-head.

Anyone kno how long this series will be? 4 issues?

Posted by AmazingWebHead

Anyone else hoping we see Deadpool with a flamethrower to even the odds?

Posted by GraniteSoldier

Deadpool will become Carnage new best friend as Carnage can kill him over and over and over and he'll keep coming back. To die again. This is a dream come true for Kassidy.

DP Has Fanbase power pumping him up :/

AWESOME!!!

Posted by GBandit

That's the fun of it. Deadpool can face anyone because he can heals xD

Posted by 8008S

At least one point of the plot will revolve around Deadpool mocking Carnage over having more miniseries coming out than him. Then at the end they decide they're both too popular to be offed permanently and give up on fighting each other.

Yes! Should be an entertaining book.

I was kinda shocked Bunn isn't help writing Deadpool #27 with all the other Deadpool writers. He didn't get in because he never wrote an ongoing.

I see Deadpool's healing factor getting taxed beyond measure. Will enjoy the ride. Lol.

Edited by PunyParker

Cullen really loves Deadpool.....

And nother fact......seeing only this ONE page where they fight.....
Concidering the symbiote doesn't trigger the Spider-sense.....

HOW THE HELL DID SPIDER-MAN SURVIVE CARNAGE ALL THOSE YEARS?!!!!

Are you joking? Ha, even when he fights random thugs in Thunderbolts or his own book they draw in his arm getting gripped off. You either don't read deadpool anymore or just don't pay attention to the stuff you read.

I read the Deadpool book. He schooled Crossbones not that long ago. Took down a SHIELD heli-carrier single handledly. He does get beaten, but not that often.

Pretty much every issue from 1-18 of this volume of Deadpool had him picking up body parts or getting burnt up. I know Deadpool is a really great fighter but writers/artist just liked to butcher him to show off his healing factor or generate comedy momentum.

Carnage should win but this should still be awesome

ANY 1 FROM BELFAST IN IRELAND WANNA TRADE COMICS

Posted by AdamAnouer

@thelaughingfish: The thing is with Carnage, he is such a cold blooded killer he'd probably relish the chance to have an opponent that he could repeatedly slash, stab, maim, strangle and endlessly torture. This one should be a good one.
