First thought when I saw his face:
Reminds me of...
Eh, Bendis could have done a better job with him. But still cool.
I hate him. His attitude sucks.
He wasn't bad. He was just kind of two dimensional. Bendis didn't really do anything to flesh him out as a character. It was just "make bad joke, make racist joke, try to kill people, repeat." Again, not a bad character. Just not a well explored character.
I agree. A much smarter version of his 616 self (supposedly according to Bendis he is smarter) with the same cocky sarcastic humor ought to have been one of the best Ultimatized characters yet. In fact from Bendis' description Deadpool sound like they took the original and made him "Ultimate". However he turned out very flat and somewhat unappealling, he should have been fleshed out much better (no pun intended).
Well, if you want to know what my opinion of him by looking at his face (and not of the overall character), I thought he looked cool.
I think it would be best if he were to show up in later issues of Ultimate X-Men. Maybe have him get less racist by having him get a girlfriend named Theresa Cassidy, and later finding out that she's a new, college level student at Xaivier's.
whoa thats creepy. How is deadpool different in the ultimate universe?
616: Wisecracking, non-racsist, not so disfigured, beloved, strong fan following...
Ultimate: Not so loved, racsist, reckless, not funny...
Wow Red Skull lite.Bendis suck.
While I don't hate Bendis, He is prone to a few of these moments.
THANKS FOR THAT! I clicked on that with my speakers on and up not knowing what would happen!
Firstly, while "DEADPOOL" was an entertaining action-packed romp, it likely didn't help that it was a story taking place in Ultimate Spider-Man rather than Ultimate X-Men. Deadpool had to be made to be an opposing match to Spidey while still fulfilling his role to be the main foil for Bendis' sequal to Vaughan's "LONGSHOT" arc. Despite the fact that Spidey being involved with the X-Men makes more sense now that he's dating Kitty, it still had an "Ultimate Marvel Team-Up" feel to it (as did far worse stories during the SUPERSTARS run). Obviously Bendis misses that title, but it was the poorest selling of the Ultimate line (barring ULTIMATE ADVENTURES, of course. I doubt Hawk-Owl's being seen again).
Secondly, Ultimate Deadpool was played "straighter" than his 616 version has become. 616 Deadpool has almost become a more lethal version of Freakazoid, whereas Ultimate Deadpool was more of a mercenary warrior with a dry wit. The downside of this is that "gunman with a quick tongue" are pretty much a dime a dozen, especially if you consider manga and anime. Vash the Stampede, Monkey C. Luffy and Lupin the Third have fought dozens like Deadpool.
That all said, I liked "DEADPOOL", but that's probably because I never really cared for 616 Deadpool much, only seeing him as a bare minimum character (a "more twisted Spider-Man with a healing factor" basically), and therefore wasn't disappointed in his presentation. If anything disappointed me about DEADPOOL, which I did like, it was that Spider-Man has become Eric Foreman (of THAT 70'S SHOW); someone who needs his girlfriend to fight and win his battles for him. One minute Kitty's a ditzy teenager, the next she's a flawless X-trained warrior, and she needs to pick one or the other, otherwise predicting her "saving the day" will become as old as predicting the next time Spider-Man will be defeated and unmasked. USM would be a flawless title if Bendis could learn to think outside his own box sometimes.
He's definitely not a bad character, especially for this early stage. I think that what we're seeing now is the rough hewn, raw material of a true early stage character that needs some work. It's alot better than Ultimate Sinister, I can tell you that.
Haha! Ultimate sinister. That moment where he shoved Xavier down some stairs was classic!
Indulge me, why does he have that case on his head?
Agreed. It wasn't the Deadpool I know and love, it was just some..mean...guy. He was so generic it could have been any random new baddie. I hated it.
And another one of my favorite 616 characters totally ruined.
Being someone who missed the arc, can I ask is that Wade without his mask?
Yes, that's how he really looks.
*squeekness weeps* Can we just forget this arc ever happened?
I understand Bendis wanted to change the character for Ultimate but he could have kept his yellow boxes.
what racist jokes did he tell?
