This book tries to achieve a Watchmen-like transcendence of the superhero as a device and reveal that we all pull the strings and Marvel knows that, and comic-writing is thus less about writing comics as art, than it is about pleasing the comic-buying demographic. It also tries to show that Marvel has a sense of humor and can admit its shortcomings (e.g. the quip about Wolverine's power being his popularity), but it fails on all levels due to its lack of focus. It's not a good slasher, because m...0 out of 0 found this review helpful.
I do reveal some things in this write-up, but if you are reading this for insight to buy into this series, my advice is: don't, just save your 12 bucks.Wow, so in every other review I rip this series pretty hard.

This is my first Marvel kills series, and it will also be my last.In terms of story, nothing happens in this issue. There is no story to this series, but there is even less story here. This could have been a forgettable two issue series, but nope.Deadpool kills the X-Men. Most of it happens "off screen". Alright. That's pretty much it. No humor really. There are places that it tries to be funny, but it's not.Last issue Taskmaster was hired to kill Deadpool. He shows up in a couple of panels and ...0 out of 0 found this review helpful.
