Would Deadpool Be better or worse in the DC universe?
I have to agree with SexyMerc and Comiclove5, I mean can you imagine Deadpool pulling his shenanigans on Batman? Dude would probably get thrown off the roof or something. the way i see it Marvel is the bright social butterfly younger sibling, versus DC being the moody angsty older brother. Deadpool would have a hard time fitting in, plus if he was in DC, we would probably never hear the end of how the resemblance to Slade Wilson and Wade Wilson is Uncanny.
@Waffle Fries: lol yea deadpool could be that crazy bc his brother tormented him and beat him so heavily and so often when they were younger and now deadpool just wants to be just like his big brother and wants to do what deathstroke does
Deadpool was already in a DC comic book (well pretty much anyway). See Superman/Batman Annual #1
And speaking from the perpective of one who generally prefers reading DC Comics to Marvel Comics, I think Deadpool is better off in the Marvel Universe (and I enjoy reading Deadpool).
Obviously with his ties to Weapon X, DP's origin would need some tinkering. But I think of all the Marvel heroes, Deadpool would benefit the most from being in DC. Even though he's immensely popular in the Marvel universe, I get the sense that he fills a role that Marvel has already filled with multiple characters. I mean think about it, how many wise-cracking, spider-man looking characters does the MU already have? That and Marvel has given DP complete crap in the villain department. T-Ray? Taskmaster? George Washington?! Pu-leeeaze.
In DC, Deadpool wouldn't only face more interesting villains, but he'd constantly be monitored and targeted by Justice League members. He would definitely be more anti-hero than hero. His feats would likely skyrocket as well, since DC tends to like to overpower its characters. In Marvel, DP is another face with similar powers as other characters. In DC, DP would be a breath of fresh air. Marvel would never give him up for free though. It'd be interesting to speculate who DC could conceivably give up for him. DC is pretty weak in the B-level hero department.
I like him in Marvel more, because of his team ups with Spider-Man, which are always hilarious. There is also quite a nice chemistry between him and Wolverine.
But, I personally would also like to see him in the DC Universe. He would kill the Joker and bang Harleys brain out! Best comicbook pairing ever, Deadpool and Harley. That's perfection ^_^b @joygirl
I would love to see Deadpool interact with some of the JL, him and the Flash would be hilarious. Or he could try to destroy the Teen Titans just to prove that he can succeed where Slade fails. Slade can be his Taskmaster..only, come out on top most of the time of course, cause he's Deathstroke :P and my God imagine Deadpool meeting Batman...
