A couple of years back, Marvel Comics had a bit of a morbid fascination with introducing their library of characters to extinction events. What began with The Punisher in 1995’s one-shot Punisher Kills the Marvel Universe, would soon be revisited in just over a decade later with an entire alternate reality of stories where X character murdered just about everyone in spandex.

Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe was the zenith of this idea. The merc with a mouth faced a foe he just couldn’t beat: Sanity, courtesy of the Psycho-man. Rendered somewhat not f***ing bananas, Deadpool’s entire existence became dedicated to wiping out superheroes, villains and just about anyone gifted with extra-normal powers before he set his sights on reality itself.

Funny thing is, without his insanity and several voices in his head hindering him, Deadpool was frighteningly effective. A keen tactical mind, a regenerative healing factor that allowed him to bounce back from Uru hammer strikes and Adamantium claws resulted in a deadly package and the deed was eventually done. Some of the methods used were ingenious.

Thor got squashed with his own hammer when Deadpool applied Pym particles to it, Spider-Man got a bullet to the brain at point-blank range and Professor X had his brain shut down after he peered to deep into Wade Wilson’s mind. Just about everyone else met a gruesome end at hands of the regeneratin’ degenerate. Hell, not even the staff of Marvel Comics were fictionally safe as they learnt that giving a character the power of fourth-wall awareness was a bad idea.

Get ready for round 2 then, because Deadpool is going to do it all over again. Marvel Editor in Chief Axel Alonso tweeted out some cover art for the upcoming mini-series Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe Again:

Prediction? Lots of dead superheroes. Like…this many. I’m holding my arms out wide right now, but you get the point.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • YEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSS!!!!

    Too damn keen for this!
