Not sure what I'm more excited by, the fact that 3-Minute Expert is back or that Joey posted this video.

Glad to see the 3-minute experts back, Tony. Keep 'em coming!

I think that now since you've done videos about Deadpool and Thanos, you should also do ones on Deathstroke and Darkseid.

That was great! Hope there's more to come soon.

Also, did they ever explain why with the healing factor he looks messed up, but without he looks normal? I'd think that if he was healing, he'd...ah, never mind.

Awesome...Does anyone know the story-arcs or issues where some of these main stories happened?

This video just supported my opinion that Deadpool is one of the dumbest characters I've ever read in a comic. He's annoying. His costumes cool though.

I meant to post this here originally, but somehow I ended up posting in on the best stuff in comics. lol.

#33 Edited by ArtisticNeedham (2245 posts) - - Show Bio

Great to see 3 Min Expert back. Love these, I learn so much!

Question. What comic was the stuff about him working as a Hobgoblin and for the Wizard and Taskmaster, and then creating his own costume from? Was it all in one comic? Where might that be collected? And are those pictures in the Deadpool gallery yet?

I'd love to see a 3 Min Expert on Savage Dragon (since he ages in real time), or Madman, or the Tick (since he has been through a lot and I haven't read it all).

Awesome! We want more!

It wasn't until I saw this video that I realized I knew very little about Deadpool's backstory!

I gotta admit if I didn't read all of these stories beforehand and knew nothing of Deadpool. I would have thought the same thing. I love the 3 minute experts but the problem is that they jump through so much and sometimes skip important details that actually are integral to understanding the character.

For instance. Yes Deadpool did Keep Blind Al as a hostage, and yes he was contracted to kill her but didn't. But they didn't explain why he chose not to kill her. Nobody would know that the reason he chose to kidnap Blind Al instead of kill her was because back then he was a sick and demented sociopath who took pleasure in other peoples pain (Probably to make himself feel better). He saw a strong woman that he could break down and torture through a means of practical jokes and harmful insults. What he didn't count on though was that Blind Al could be just as mean and was often better at practical jokes than him. Eventually she grew into a sort of mother figure to Deadpool.

Honestly though, if you read Joe Kelly's run on Deadpool. It would change your mind. I think Deadpool is probably one of the best characters in comics based solely on that run alone. Everything else is good or lackluster, Joe Kelly's run is the definitive Deadpool run and is pretty much the bible to all hardcore Deadpool fans. Pick it up sometime, it's worth every penny. Believe me, it's as good as everyone says it is.

Can you do a 3 minute Expert for Flash, I know a lot about him, but I would love to know more, also, I feel a lot of other people don't know him that well.

#42 Posted by cc1738 (358 posts) - - Show Bio

@G-Man: Every time I've read a comic with him I've found him extremely irritating and stupid. I don't find his comics funny at all. My friend tried to get me to change my mind and let me read the first Deadpool and Cable trade and I couldn't even finish it. I thought it was awful. I can't stand him at all and nothing will ever change my mind.

@The Lobster : No thanks. There's so many comics that I like that I'm not going waste my money on a comic based a character I hate on the off chance that it may change my mind.

Who says you have to spend money? Borrow it from someone?

Oh well, Your lost. Although I gotta admit I'm a bit peeved your friend recommended Cable and Deadpool and not Joe Kelly's stuff. People act like Cable and Deadpool's run is the greatest thing since sliced cheese when really it was only....for lack of a better word....good. It wasn't horrible and it has it's moments but honestly Fabian pretty much pulled a Daniel Way and said "screw continuity" and changed lots of things and never explained why they changed. It was like someone saying screw Batman's parents being shot by a random mugger, turns out they were shot by Deadshot in full costume, and then never explaining why for all the years before Bruce thought it was a random mugger. They don't even bring it up, Bruce just so happens to think that Deadshot killed his parents in full costume.

Everyone has a character they don't like. Heck I'll be plain honest there are three characters I absolutely hate to the point that I wish they'd reboot them into something better..... Mr. Fantastic, Captain America, and Pretty Much all the Robins, including Nightwing (Although I will admit, Damian is the best Robin so far, he's the less annoying of the 5). They have a few good stories here and there but I'm not a fan of them in the slightest. We all have characters who get under our skin.

Awesome 3 minute expert is back!

I had never known that Deadpool had a thing going with Death. I'm curious what Thanos has to say about this relationship. Doesn't he have the hots for Death too?

#48 Posted by cc1738 (358 posts) - - Show Bio

@The Lobster : What!!!?? I can't talk to you anymore. How can you not like Nightwing? He's my favorite DC character. It's not even a contest. I also like Captain America. I hate Mr. Fantastic. All he does is stretch. It's the lamest power I've ever heard.

That was in 1999's DEADPOOL #35.

I re-read A LOT of Deadpool for this.

Never liked him or any of the Robins. The minute Robin was introduced was the moment Batman no longer could be taken seriously for me. DC keeps trying to drill in the whole Batman is a loner thing and I keep saying....uh no he's not? What makes Batman interesting and the best crime fighter is his dedication. He was more interesting to me when his dedication to crime fighting took control of him and he became this emotional gothic shut-in. I always pictured Bruce Wayne becoming so dedicated that eventually he'd fake his death just so he could be Batman twenty-four-seven. Batman has always worked better alone, name one time a Robin never got in the way or did something that was beneficial to the mission that Batman couldn't have done himself or hadn't already plan on doing. At least Nightwing has gone off and done his own thing, but I still couldn't care less about him. The only Robin who kinda works is Damian because like Batman he's serious, almost too serious for Batman. All the other Robins play crime fighting off like it's a game or something cool to do.

As for Captain America, I'm not a fan of patriotism. I have no problem with people loving ones country, but some people take it WAAAAY overboard. Captain America was created as a patriotic image and he really hasn't evolved past that. I guess you could say that I don't hate the character, I just hate what he stands for. Superheroes should be owned by the world not an image of one country. Which is why I was fine with Superman giving up his American citizenship, but sadly people made a huge deal about it and now that was retconned.

Mr. Fantastic is the opposite, I HATE this character. You remember that one kid who thinks that he's smarter than you just because he gets good grade. That's Mr. Fantastic. I mean, come on, experimenting on your kid just because he has a power that COULD destroy the world....great parenting Reed. Sue is pretty much his voice of reason....But still, half the time he ignores what she says because "he's the smart one". I like the other members of the Fantastic Four, and Doctor Doom is probably my favorite antagonist....but I cannot stand Reed Richards for the life of me.
