Deadpool Kills Mini Series

Of the many characters that have grazed Marvel comics since the late 1930s, there is no crazier and more fun character than Deadpool. The Merc with the mouth was introduced not that long ago, within the pages of New Mutants #98 in 1991, as written by both Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza with the artwork provided by Liefeld. After his introduction, Deadpool eventually evolved into the wise cracking and fourth wall braking crazy lunatic we all love to read and eventually watch when played by Ryan Reynolds.

Someone like Deadpool has countless of stories that one could describe as insane, imaginative, violent, and so entertaining. From 2011 to 2013, Marvel released a trilogy in which an alternative version of the Regenerating Degenerate went on a killing spree. The first is Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe, wherein a version of Wade Wilson learns that he and everyone else are all fictional and decides to kill all of the major Marvel characters, heroes and villains alike, in very gruesome manners.

Follow that up with Deadpool Killustrated wherein that same version of Deadpool has gone to other universes and kill their heroes, until deciding that by killing the literary figures that inspired the heroes and villains may destroy all versions of him.

The final installment, Deadpool Kills Deadpool, has the main 616 universe Deadpool join other versions to defeat the crazed Deadpool, now known as Dreadpool, from killing all Deadpools with the help of versions that agree with him due to believing that their existence is essential to the multiverse.

Befitting the character, the comics are not afraid to show many of our beloved heroes and villains be killed by him in such horrific ways, like using Pym particles to shrink bombs inside of Luke Cage or bludgeoning the sisters from Little Women.

Having Sherlock Holmes become his adversary and forming a team of classic characters in Killustrated is just so awesome. The artwork for all three stories remains mostly the same throughout, with a very cartoonish but still serious design to them, while the writing is shock full of witty writing and great dark humor.

Deadpool Kills Deadpool is the Strongest of the 3

Deadpool Kills Deadpool is definitely the strongest of the three mini series. Due to how absolutely insane it goes in showing the crazy and over the top versions of Deadpool. You have a version of him that is a giant panda, another that’s Galactus, and one that just has a hive of bees for a beard. My one complaint would be that there are times in all three stories where certain dead bodies leave the exact trail of gore as the other bodies.
