Honestly, don’t still Deadpool. Wade isn’t what you’d call ‘rational’… or sane.
It’s been a while since S.H.I.E.L.D. had Deadpool re-kill the reanimated Presidents of the United States – and Agent Gorman of S.H.I.E.L.D. stiffed him on his well-earned pay! After all, he doesn’t do this for free, y’know? Now it’s time to collect what he’s owed – even if he’s gotta take down all of S.H.I.E.L.D. to get paid! But with S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Preston’s consciousness still stuck in his head – how’s she going to feel about all this destruction? And is all this S.H.I.E.L.D. stuff a shameless cash-in because of the TV show? Ask guest-star AGENT COULSON! Don’t miss the explosive start of Deadpool vs. S.H.I.E.L.D. when Deadpool #21 hits print and digital this December!
Deadpool has such a great tilt of barely-there sanity and coherence in general that it should be really fun to see him ‘assaulting’ S.H.I.E.L.D. It’s pretty great too that the creative team for the book sees the funnier side of things with the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. jokes.
I’ve been a fan of the character for quite some time though, ever since his intro in the pages of X-Force back when it was piloted by Rob Liefeld. He’s had an interesting evolution since then, going from a serious ‘gray’ character to a more heroic and comedic one. It says a lot for the character, I think, that he works and fits in in either way.
As for the upcoming story arc, the creative team of Gerry Duggan, Brian Posehn, and artist Mike Hawthorne promise that this ‘ain’t gonna be pretty’- so if you’re a Deadpool fan, don’t miss it. Look for Deadpool #21 to end the year with a bang when it hits shelves on December 18th from Marvel Comics.
