Yeah, pretty sure the costume we have now is the best Deadpool design we've had in years. It's got just the right amount of military black ops look, mixed with the perfect amount of the original design.
So the newest Deadpool arc titled "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly" has ended and we've had a few days to let it soak in.
The arc has been nothing but universally praised, even IGN who hates Deadpool as a character and usually gives his series nothing higher than a 7 out of 10 has given this arc an 9 out of 10. That says something.
Now I want to hear everybody's opinions and discussion on this arc.
Here's some questions to get the ball rolling.....
So is Deadpool canadian as he and several marvel databases claim? He seemed pretty happy that Butler confirmed that he wasn't from Ohio like his other origin story suggested.
Is this the definitive Deadpool arc? Many seem to be calling it that....but compared to Joe Kelly's masterful run, that's a bold claim?
What is up with that cliffhanger of an ending? What are Gerry and Brian building up to with this next S.H.I.E.L.D. arc or will that come into play in the next few arcs? These guys are definitely planning long term?
Will we see more of the Korean x-men? Gerry Duggan seems to have hinted that they may make a return in another book.
@the_lobster_: dare I say, that dare you say, that daring to say, dare I say this is one of the best acrs of the year is not really a dare... Cause it's 100% true, it could be the arc of the year for any comic anywhere!
I say, that I agree with what you said about what I said.
I'm fine with what Gerry and Brian are doing with the current series. They've brought Deadpool back to his roots as a dark sad clown who masks his insecurities through a sense of humor. Sure the first arc was kind....blech....but everything from issue 7 onwards has been steller.
I personally think their series is better than anything Rick Remender has written for Deadpool at all. Uncanny X-force was great, but Deadpool was only the center of focus in 10 of the 35 issues. Plus his What If Deadpool/Venom one-shot was horrible and his short Deadpool story for the 900th issue was only....decent at best.
So statistically, Gerry and Brian have written more good Deadpool stories than Rick Remender has.
I think the new series is currently rectifying that mistake, specially with this current arc. He's gone from a complete goof-ball, to a goof-ball with a hint of a dark side, to a full blown psychopath who likes to joke.
