Off My Mind: Deadpool - Friend or Foe to Vampires?
by Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero on
What will happen when Deadpool gets mixed up with them?
Last month I gave my thoughts on Wolverine being turned into a vampire. This is something that we're currently seeing in the pages of X-Men with the Curse of the Mutants storyline. Deadpool has a stronger healing factor so it definitely shouldn't be possible for him to get infected. Since vampires have targeted the mutants and Deadpool's been so chummy with them, it makes sense that he'll be going up against vampires, right?

Wrong. According to the solicit info. for issue #30, Deadpool is going to be working with them. Actually, he's going to be protecting vampires.
Deadpool may have a wacky sense of right and wrong, but would he actually work for vampires? I suppose if the price was right, he'd do just about anything.
What does this mean for the overall storyline of Curse of the Mutants? Most likely, very little.
Despite the overabundance of Deadpool appearances, I still like him. Probably because I choose not to read all the different comics he's in, as hard as that may be to believe. Most of the Deadpool stories are still fun but they don't seem to really have any lasting impact or relevance to his history.
That's the main thing that bothers me about the state of Deadpool these days. It used to be, Deadpool would appear in a book, interact or fight with someone and it meant something. I can't help but believe that Deadpool protecting vampires will make any difference to his mythos. It will go unnoticed just like his latest "team-ups" do in his other book. Where is the Deadpool I used to know?
I have to admit that Deadpool protecting cowering vampires could provide some entertainment but I guess we'll have to see if I'll be able to sink my teeth into the story once it comes out.
