Deadpool Finishes the Deadpool Killogy in Deadpool Kills Deadpool… Deadpool
Right now we are in the middle of the recently dubbed Deadpool Killogy, which started in Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe and continued with the currently happening Deadpool Killustrated. Things will be wrapping up this summer, however, as Deadpool targets the one who is truly behind all of his suffering: Deadpool!
Newsarama reported last week that Cullen Bunn, writer of the Deadpool Killogy as well as Venom, The Fearless Defenders, and The Sixth Gun, would be pitting Deadpool against Deadpool in Deadpool Kills Deadpool, a four issue mini-series. This won’t be like the Dead story arc where Deadpool gets really emo and introspective. This is going to be Bunn’s Deadpool, who has since been dubbed Dreadpool, hunting down and killing every incarnation of Deadpool. Meanwhile, our Deadpool will be hunting down Dreadpool and trying to stop him from killing themselves.
Bunn said in the Nrama interview…
…One of the things that writers often hear when it comes to stories like Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe, for instance, is, “Well, it takes place in an alternate universe, so it must not be important.” That was really the note I wanted to touch on when going into this series. In this series, the Deadpool that we see in the other two books — who, because it gets confusing, I’m calling “Dreadpool” — this insane Deadpool, who’s set about killing everyone, he’s tried to kill the Marvel Universe numerous times, he’s killed dozens of different alternate universe versions of superheroes. And he has tried to kill the inspiration for these superheroes, by going into this literary universe, and destroying the literary icons who inspired them. And none of that has helped him succeed in his mission of ending all things.
He has stumbled into the thought that he himself, the entity of Deadpool, is actually the progenitor of the comic book universe. So he believes that Deadpool is the key to destroying everything, and so, sets out to destroy every version of Deadpool in existence in the multiverse. And that includes the 616 Deadpool that we read about in the main series every month.
Bunn went on to mention some of the Deadpools we’ll be seeing in the series, like Dead Man Wade from the Age of Apocalypse, Golden Age Deadpool, and Deadpool Noir. He also said that the Deadpool Corps will play a major part in the story. But while the series will be “the most Deadpool-heavy Deadpool series in history,” there will be other supporting characters in the series who aren’t Deadpool.
Deadpool Kills Deadpool will start this July.
