First Look: HAWKEYE VS. DEADPOOL #0

The heat is on. Or something is on. Gerry Duggan is 'on' this book. That's cool.

This September, the Avenging Archer takes on the Merc With a Mouth in a confrontation for the history books in HAWKEYE VS. DEADPOOL #0 – the first issue in a new limited series from critically-acclaimed Deadpool scribe Gerry Duggan and artist Matteo Lolli! This is the Hawkeye & Deadpool comic 75 years in the making! Give or take 75 years! A Halloween murder mystery and ad S.H.I.E.L.D. espionage mission is about to send these two on a collision course with destiny – and each other! Not to mention the desire to one-up the other!

“There is a real threat,” says series writer Gerry Duggan, in an interview with Marvel.com. “There’s a very important thumb drive that’s missing, containing details on the personal and family lives of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. When different organizations hear about this, it becomes a bit of a dog pile.”

“There’s an expectation, too, with a title like HAWKEYE VS. DEADPOOL, that there will be a confrontation between these two,” continues Duggan. “I think we make that happen in a smart way. It’s not the same old take on the misunderstanding that often sends two heroes into conflict. We have a twist on that.”

Long ago, champions emerged to fight the evil that plagued humanity. Champions that fought for salvation, for all that was good and just in the world. Kind, generous and self-sacrificing – they were heroes. These are not those heroes… Who will win in this titanic clash of Avenger & X-Man? Two men enter. One man leaves. Then shortly after, the other man leaves! It all kicks off this September in HAWKEYE VS. DEADPOOL #0!

That can't be daredevil, please be someone dressed up for halloween.

Haha. So Hawkeye's dressed as Ultron and Deadpool is a Ghostbuster. The two make an interesting mix.

Looks like Ron Pearlman lol. From Hellboy to Daredevil.

Either way it's got Hawkeye in it so I'll check it out.

Marvel wants another Hawkeye movie, might as well do it with Deadpool.

This looks awesome to say the least

They should just make Deadpool vs Mercs because some of the best parts in the comics are when he fights other contract killers in the Marvel Universe. This has the premise and the talent behind it to be both hilarious and action packed. Consider me interested in this book.

@renchamp: That looks like Preston and (in a rather disappointing spoiler marvel) Eleanor in that one panel. I'd say it's def in continuity...
