I''ve heard that Marvel created Deadpool through Deathstroke. I'm not sure if it's true.

Anyway, I have 2 questions.

1. Who is the better character?

2. Who do you like more?

Deadpool By Daniel Picciotto

or

Deathstroke

I love Deadpool he is funy but Deathstroke is more serious, so Deadpool or Deathstroke = DONT KNOW :))

Both equally and I wish they worked together. It would be hilarious to see Slade tire of DP and either try to kill him or ditch him every six issues. lol

Deathstroke for both.

deathstroke, I hate how deadpools healing factor fluctuates so much between writers and him constantly breaking the fourth wall.

Deadpool is stupid...and a whole hell of a lot of fun. I like him in small doses.

Deathstroke is good at times, but let's be honest, his character has varied wildly over the years. My favorite interpretation of him is as a BA with no allegiance to anyone but himself and his contract. I liked how he was portrayed in Identity Crisis.

If I have to pick one, I go with Deadpool because you never know what you might get with Deathstroke.

They're both awesome, but I'll go for Deadpool because I love myself a bit of comedy in comics.

1. Deadpool because I like to take a break from the serious comic characters occasionally. He brings humor and its pretty fun to read his comics.

2. Deathstroke. It is sort of a preference of DC over Marvel but Deathstroke is a favorite villain of mine. Ever since Teen Titans show, I have grown more interested in him with comics.

I prefer Deathstroke. Badass character, interesting mindset, makes for a good enemy. Deadpool is fun for the occassional joke or goofy comic, but he's not a favourite of mine.

#14 Posted by Crom-Cruach (8867 posts) - - Show Bio

Deathstroke is better.

Deadpool. 
 
Anybody who's read Joe Kelly's Deadpool run knows this. Joe Kelly's Deadpool run is probably better than anything Deathstroke has ever been in.

Yeah, because it must be better than Wolfman's and Perez's Teen Titans or Wolfman's Deathstroke...

I haven't read the teen titans run, but I have read several story arcs of the Deathstroke series and I can safely say the Joe Kelly's Deadpool run was way better. Much more character development, much more action, and the story was actually building to something. Joe Kelly's run had a strict beginning, middle, and end. Joe Kelly's run had far more impact on the readers. Us Deadpool fans us that run like a bible, nothing has come close to being as great as it. This guy sums up why is so great perfectly.

Sounds like Deadpool is getting more votes. : )

I should have made a poll though.

That was awesome thanks. Though they don't say it, We know exactly who that is. That is the exact way I imagine their partnership. at times. I would like to see serious story being written as well.

Deadpool. Sorry Slade. I just love the guy. I know this is cheesy, but every time I'm down I can read this dude, and still laugh at something I've already read a thousand times. DP all day son!!

#30 Posted by Moonchilde (1601 posts) - - Show Bio

Deathstroke in both cases. Deadpool can be funny in small doses, but I generally prefer more series characters.

deathstroke, i like my comics to take themselves seriously. i read one deadpool comic and he started talking about following him on Twitter, i immediately deleted that of my kindle

I like Deathstroke but I can't not say Deadpool. He's utterly hilarious with a mixture of dark action, a perfect character to my tastes. I laugh out loud when reading him more than any other character.

#45 Posted by ntb1124 (949 posts) - - Show Bio

Deadpool is actually a great character, he just often from bad writers and worse fan boys....

Deathstroke just doesn't have the same notoriety, but he is the original and better background/story in my opinion...

#46 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

Deathstroke for me. I like Deadpool, but as he gains more popularity, the more annoying he becomes.

#47 Posted by minigunman123 (3116 posts) - - Show Bio

Deathstroke is both a better character and the character I like more.

Deadpool is based off Deathstroke.
