Harley Quinn and Deadpool



Deadpool was on my radar, but it took a while for me to become a fan.  What did it for me was not a comic book appearance, but the Deadpool video game.  It was a blast to play and made great use of the character's humor and tendency to break the fourth wall.  I watched the teaser for the upcoming movie, and they seem to have struck the perfect tone for Deadpool - not to mention a costume that for once looks like it leapt right off the comics page.

I always felt that costume was just a plagiarism of Spidey's and Deathstroke's costumes.

The costume (and character) was written to be something of a parody of Spider-Man, and in an early meeting between Spidey and Deadpool, the mercenary (who had been hired to distract, but not kill, the wall-crawler) admitted that he was a huge fan and that his costume was inspired by Spider-Man's. Of course, that meeting happened in a Spider-Man comic, so it may not hold true for Deadpool continuity.

And you know, seeing them quote that movie, I can just imagine that if they ever did get together, that's EXACTLY what they'd say...
