Looks like they need to add another moderator to the staff who will boldly go where no moderator has gone before....and keep watch over the Deadpool forum.

Pretty much depends on who is writing him, currently the ongoing is being written by Daniel Way, in which it can change mid issue as there is no consistent or good characterization of him. He started out as a mercenary and we've seen him develop some morals to do what's right when the situation dictates and reveal his inner hero. Right now he is kind of a moronic anti-hero, the victim of very poor writing. Really the best characterization of him can be found in Rememender's Uncanny X-FORCE, where is one of a badass group of assassins who are taking out threats to mutant-kind and the world in secret black ops type missions. In that case he fights alongside Psylocke and Wolverine, so I'd call him a hero, even tho he's doing his share of killing.
I just wish it had a red belt to fall in line with the new comic costume. Otherwise they have the same general armored feel, but the belt would add a lot to the movie costume in my opinion.
@RedheadedAtrocitus: All great points!! And I agree I definitely saw the parallels to Matrix. I'm really hoping that the guys at From Crisis to Crisis will tackle this and ask some of the members of the creative team about this when they interview one of them next. Hopefully we can get some answers from Ordway or Jurgens on the matter.
@Jekylhyde: Some good points, but if no one never knew the story existed why would they ever come out and say something about it? They'd have to bring out all of these specific incidents and issues and say this is what we had planned but never executed. That seems kind of like crying over spilt milk, they wouldn't waste their time explaining a secret reveal that they canned revealing. I think a lot of it was probably due to the fallout from the Clone Saga and how outraged so many Spidey fans were, this would have been much better executed and way better planned in my opinion, but the public outcry probably would have been the same. Everything that was put out in the first few years following the Byrne reboot was very tightly connected, and if this was to be the story in a 1988 annual it would have been part of contiuity with plans to use it. They did away with the imaginary one shot tales of the silver age (until a few years later when they came out with all of the Elseworlds books, which were clearly identified as such). I really think the people to interview and ask about this would have to be Jurgens, Ordway, and Byrne. And most of the time when they are interviewed about Superman from this time period it is all going to be focused around Marrying Lois Lane, Death & Return of Superman, and Energy Superman. They would never have any reason to bring up this huge cover-up and secret story, especially since they were probably sworn to secrecy when DC decided to not reveal it.
@Izaiah: Exactly, well said Izaiah. If that logic applies to Superman/Majestic then it would have to apply to all Wildstorm characters who have similarities to pre-existing DC Characters. @kama_094: Until we get an official statement saying they are one in the same I will stand by my statements that they can co-exist. Simply "looking to alike" is a lame excuse and weak reasoning. The 2 instances you gave about Final Crisis and Majestic being mistaken for Superman no longer exist. Those didn't happen in the new continuity. And you know what, so what if they look similar, that could be how they introduce him, people in some other city mistake him as Superman with a new costume and they meet. Big deal, it'd be a good story. But to say there is no room for both characters simply because they have the same powers and look SIMILAR is weak at best. But again, the artist could draw Majestic's face anyway he wanted to, they would not have to look the same. Again I say that Cho's Superman looks nothing like McGuiness's Superman, which looks nothing like Jurgen's Superman and so on. With 2 different artist handling the characters THEY WOULD NOT LOOK THE SAME.
If you aren't going to have any impact on a title, why bother wasting too many original ideas on the last 6 to 12 issues?
Good point, and not just the last 6-12 issues of a title, but that entire Universe for that matter.
It was bumped by Primebonnick, who I believe was serious when he said that the topic starter "you sir are a god among men a true fan of prime"
I don't know how I missed this moronic rambling back when this kid started this stupid thread.
@Primmaster64: That's what I've been saying this whole time, in the new Universe they would not have to look a like, simply being strong with dark hair does not make them twins. I gave the example of Captain Marvel which was reiterated by Izaiah. They don't have to draw their faces the same, show me a picture where Majestic's face looks like Cho's Superman? The faces of Superman vary drastically from artist to artist, you can't tell me that they look exactly the same. A different costume with a different artist drawing Majestic than Superman and they would not look the same. And like I said, about Daxamites common lineage but they are not the same, they are split by millenia. If you want to go that route then if you believe in evolution we are the same as giraffes, because supposedly all mammals have a common ancestor, so even tho that was millenia ago we are the same by that same very faulty logic. Daxamites are not Kryptonians, if they were they wouldn't react completely different to lead and kryptonite.
