Death of Deadpool
Marvel ( April)
After Captain America, Spider- Man and Wolverine, you might have thought Marvel would have run out of high- profile heroes that it hasn’t killed off yet. But now it’s the turn of the Merc with the Mouth, who, fresh from his nuptials last year, will be biting the dust in April’s oversized Deadpool # 250. With the wisecracking Wade Wilson getting his mitts on an Infinity Gauntlet, it remains to be seen how co- writers Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn will bring about his demise. But given the book’s humorous tone and the recent news that Ryan Reynolds will headline a Deadpool movie in 2016, you have to wonder how long it’ll be before he returns to the land of the living.
Deadpool isn’t quite Ryan Reynolds under that mask yet.
