I don't mind it.

I like the metal teeth idea. I'm getting the feeling that the story behind that idea was Batman has knocked out so many of his teeth that he's had to get new ones implanted. Makes sense and adds to the creepy smile aspect.

The tattoos are kinda meh. I'm fine with the some of the ones on his chest and arms, specially the Hahaha's. That's actually kind of a cool.... but having "damaged" plastered on his forehead. I don't know, something about that seems off.

But hey, he's got the green hair and the bleach white skin. Plus I'm confident that Jared Leto will knock this character out of the ballpark. Just listen to the dude laugh, you can tell he's the perfect person to play the crown prince of crime.

Honestly, I'm a big fan of what Scott Snyder is doing with Joker's origins. Making him some-kind of immortal demonic pale-man of legend. I've already posted about this in another form, but I'll post it again for discussion.

First off, Joker being immortal certainly makes him twice as scary. Joker was always a metaphorical force of nature, when he was a man. While Batman was representative of all the good mankind could do, Joker was representative of all the bad. It makes sense. Two sides of the same coin. All that jazz. Which is still there, it's just not as present as it used to be. Mostly because now he could quite LITERALLY be a force of nature and that is horrific if you really sit down and think about it.

Batman is now representative of mankind and it's fight to constantly find meaning and even fight against the unexplainable and the unknown. Joker is that unexplainable force, he's everything that mankind seeks to know but can't comprehend. That point was especially driven home in the back-up stories. Where the Doctor thinks she understands that which hasn't been understood....only to find out that there is no way of fully knowing the unexplainable. That the unexplainable will always find a way to continue being, an unexplainable.

So not only does this new Joker origin continue the trend of Joker's true origin never being known. But it pushes the dial up to an 11. Now he could be anyone or anything. He could be a demon, a cavemen, a robot, a monster, a man, mobster, or even all the above. Plus it continues the trend of him being a force of nature, but in a more literal sense now. I really dig it.

Loving that people are pitching in their thoughts. Forgot to add my own...

If I was a super-hero I'd give every supervillain and criminal I met a "three strikes warning." If I catch them more than three times. I'd kill them. Obviously this only applies to people who have killed other people. Someone I bust for drug dealing or bank robbery, the "three strikes warning" doesn't apply. What determines the three strikes, is intent. Did they "try" to kill someone? Would they have killed someone if I didn't get involved? If so that counts just as much as a strike as if he did actually kill someone.

Killing killers makes me a killer, which makes me no better than them. Granted, and I agree that in every case you should take the high-road. But eventually as a superhero, you're going to meet someone who can't be reasoned with or is going to continue to hurt innocent people. Those people need to be given the option for change but if they can't than It's up to me to ensure they don't harm anyone else. You have to throw killers into jail. The option to change their ways has to be given first. How are they going to better themselves if they're never given help? There are plenty of people in jail who killed someone, but later grew to regret it and now are trying to be a worthy part of society. They learned the error of their ways. If you just kill a killer, you're not giving him the option to learn and change and become a better person. There are always other options. Killing should ONLY be a last response. Killing should only be reserved to the lost causes.

In this world, you have to inspire people to be better than killers by being better than them. Not by stooping to their low. But at the same time, realistic expectations have to be given. There are always people who can't be helped.

Any fighter worth his salt can beat his ass given they are fully prepared to "go the distance" with wade. Treat him as a "anything goes" opponent because he's apparently endless in his regenaration and his eccentric behavior. Alot of writers make the the marvel fighters job due to CIS and making Wade get to them thinking he's pathetic, weird, and weak.

Deadpool's biggest strength is that most people (Even other readers) think he's a fool. Which gives him the advantage. Just like that old lady said in the Daredevil Netflix series said, "a wise man will act as the fool." Deadpool may be silly, but he sure ain't stupid.

Surprised no ones mentioned the price yet.

10 bucks, but the issue will be incredibly larger than a normal issue to compensate for the price.

Deathstroke. People, Deadpool killed the depowered and featless Marvel Universe through PIS ways. He killed SS and Thanos off panel, we don't know how he did it. Deathstroke is still this Wade's physical superior (as he is to most versions) and his staff could freeze him in place as it has an ice function.

Actually there was a reason, issue four of the series revealed that Deadpool had been torturing Puppet Master to make puppets for all the tougher targets to kill, and use those puppets to force those tougher targets into committing suicide. Once he had all the puppets he needed, he tricked Punisher into shooting Puppet Master so he couldn't make a Deadpool puppet.

No more PIS than how Deathstroke took down the justice league single-handed using. Tactics like tricking flash into running into his sword (have a really hard time buying that Slade's reflexes are better than the fastest man alive), and taking out the Atom with a laser pointer (That's hilariously silly).

I don't know what you said has to do with my post.

You said that he killed Thanos and Silver Surfer off panel, and we don't know how he did it. With was false. I gave you the explanation for how he did it. With Puppet Master's puppets making them commit suicide. They made that quite clear in the book that was how he took down the Cosmic heavy hitters. I also said that you saying that Deadpool killed the marvel universe through "Plot Induced Stupidity" makes little sense, because Deathstroke's tactics for taking down the Justice League is just as much Plot Induced Stupidity if not more so.

Deadpool has the better healing factor, and Slade has no way of keeping Deadpool down for good. This version of Deadpool also has the sword specifically designed to kill those with healing factors, Slade's included. Plus, this Deadpool has killed an entire version of the Marvel Universe. Including Galactus, Thanos, Silver Surfer, and a bunch of other beings that Slade wouldn't stand a chance against.

Deathstroke would put up a heck of fight, but he'd eventually lose.

Behold, the evidence.....
