Unlike the Death of Wolverine storyline, the death of Deadpool has not been touted as much as many of the other death’s in the Marvel Universe. Some are probably speculating that since Deadpool’s movie rights are held by Fox that they are killing off the character to impact the film, which is an asinine concept to say the least.
Needless to say, it seems Marvel has released a preview of the upcoming Deadpool #45, which is the “Death of Deadpool” issue. What will make this comic fun will be the all-star lineup of creators from the current line-up to their past.
Gerry Duggan, Brian Posehn and Mike Hawthorne will give us the main story, which will handle the end of the character. After that, Duggan, Posehn and Scott Koblish will give us an untold Deadpool tale were Wade Wilson took possession of the Infinity Gauntlet and summoned the entire Marvel Universe for his own roast. Classy.
After that, there will be many creators from Paul Scheer to Mike Drucker, and some others, that will pay their final respects to the merc with the mouth. The issue hits retailers in April.
