DEADPOOL: I’m. Gonna. Win.

DEADPOOL: This is my story, pal. How do you think any of the heroes lost to me?

DEADPOOL: How do you think I killed them?

DEATHSTROKE: Dumb luck.

DEADPOOL: Wrong. I got the forces of nature on my side. It’s fate. Love. Death. Mostly Death. She’s guiding me, Stroke. So I can see her again.

DEADPOOL: She wants the D, dude.

DEATHSTROKE: Whatever excuse for dumb luck makes you feel better, Pool.

Wade, unmasked, his mutilated face on full display, holding a pistol to Slade’s head.

WADE: Guess what? I may be a nothing, but that doesn’t mean I can’t kick your ass.

WADE: What a funny coincidence!

WADE: I don’t give a f**k.

16.2

Wade looking around in the void.

DEATH: You’ll just love it.

16.3

DEATH: Oh, you silly man.

DEATH: Now, get ready.

WADE: What?

DEATH: And so, the killer’s journey began anew.

DEATH: He would consider it a punishment, for his own awful actions.

DEATH: I would consider it a gift.

19.2

Death watches over Deadpool, looking in on him through a patch of blackness in the void that has opened up, to show him. Like a crystal ball.

DEATH: The universe he resides in now is similar to the last.

DEATH: Although, far more prosperous. It belongs to a section of universes that may or may not be entirely lost, soon enough.

19.3

Death looks closely at Deadpool.

DEATH: This is merely a scouting mission, a chance to see if the universe will reject him like the last, as is the order of things, or bow to destruction.

19.4

Focus in on Deadpool in the forest. He’s opening up a bush with his hands, to see what’s on the other side.

DEATH: Only time will tell.

Bravo.

Loved the battle between Slade and Wade, loved the dialogue between Death and Wade and man -- the ending?

Phenomenal.

I really, really enjoyed this -- I am now convinced you are Deadpool in human form. Pitch-perfect characterization.

This is awesome. It needs to be made into an actual comic.

I wish.

Seriously, I do. I wish that for pretty much all my stuff here.

My older stuff here is kinda lame and it's from before I started to get better, but I keep them here because all the scripts here tied together storywise.

Still. I'd love for this or "Cult of Khonshu"/"Vengeance of the Cult of Khonshu" to get drawn the most.

I get it's fiction and all but the errors need to staaaaaph it.

  • - If only Wade killed Talia...
  • - I believe Batman's two way communicator piece is like, in his cowl or something right?
  • - Superman wasn't weary of a trap.
  • - Superman also doesn't back check on what happened after Batman confronts The Flash's killer.
  • - Poor Static Shock is probably plucking flower petals also.
  • - Slade. Fights the killer of nearly the whole Justice League, with no back up plan. (Didn't as much as nuke himself, so what's up with that?)
  • - I'm not completely sure Starfire hate's poison / Wonder Girl?
  • - Death of Wonder Woman = New God?
  • -*Goddess*

As a man who wants to become a comic writer, this was pretty good.

Really did capitalize on old Deadpool there for a second. Having the serious moments. I feel as though you should have cut it off when Deadpool hit him with the van though.

To have Deadpool just walk over, face to face, no masks with Deathstroke and put a gun inside his mouth, not letting him reply. Would really capitalisze on the grittier part of Deadpool..
