Batman and Deadpool

OK, I am not a huge fan of Deadpool. I have read a few funny comics featuring him, but these days Marvel seems determined to oversaturate the market with him for some reason. Anyway, I never thought I would do a team up with him until I stumbled onto a cover with his mask pinned with a knife and I knew it looked very similar to a cover John Byrne for the "Many Deaths of the Batman" storyline several years beck. It's a very simple concept, but I think it worked out quite nicely.

How about Nightshade, since she was also drawn by Jim Aparo? Be nice to see Thunderbolt, Captain Atom, and the Question as well. Love you blog!

Nightshade is a great suggestion for the dual Aparo element! I'm not sure how many images exist online, but I will poke around. I am intrigued at the idea. I actually have been trying to do a Captain Atom one, but the Ditko artwork doesn't blend very well with other styles so it is a challenge.

Deadpool is a character whose appeal totally escapes me. And he's written by writers who think they're a whole lot funnier than they actually are.

DP Fan(not an innuendo) said...

so is this pick just photoshoped then? or is this actually canon?
cause i have a hard time believing and any Marvel character was able to move to DC even if it is just Brave and the Bold.
in light of uncertain evidence, i'll just go with the answer that pleases me most. it's true.
i love DP, because he's two steps north of a cartoon, two steps east of a Hero two steps west of a villian, and two steps south of how insane the joker is. Deadpool is the most well versed in multi-dime. Travel and mucking about with a lower standered of reason and general safety, so if anyone would be most likely to pop up in another comic book franchise, it be Deadpool. Alternate versions of DP have: jump universes to join forces into a DP Corp., one's killed a marvel-verse, the ideo-verse(which is where all great storytellers have gotten their stories from[kinda sonds like plagerism to me]), and he's even atempted to murder himself in an epic war of stupid joke after stupid joke. Deadpool is also most noted for corting Death(female) in a love triangle against Thanos one of Marvel's more powerfuler villians.
as for his fame well he was a cult classic that people just decide should get a bump up or idk. Wade wilson is the joke made by marvel's B-team after figuring out that deathstroke is plagirised from Captain America. i mean, Slade Wilson, Wade Wilson, they're practically interdime. Cousins.
