Movies, Comics & Music (Oh My!)

Deadpool, real name Wade Winston Wilson, is a popular fictional character who appeared first in American comic books published by Marvel Comics and was later transported to the big screen, played by Ryan Reynolds. Created by writer Fabian Nicieza and artist/writer Rob Liefeld, Deadpool first appeared in New Mutants #98 (February 1991), depicted as a supervillain in New Mutants and X-Force but evolved into a modern antihero, which likely contributes to the character’s success. Deadpool is known as the “Merc with a Mouth” for his tendency to talk and joke incessantly, a characteristic shared with The Amazing Spiderman, another popular American comic character who also appears in Marvel comics. This habit in all likelihood contributes to the character’s success. Deadpool frequently breaks down the artificial “fourth wall” to comment directly to readers for additional humor and effect. Deadpool’s real name, Wade Wilson, is an inside-joke to being “related” to “Slade Wilson,” or Deathstroke, a character which appears in comics by rival publisher DC.

Deadpool: Merc with a Mouth was published from September 2009 to September 2010. In this series, Deadpool teams up with Headpool from Marvel Zombies #3 and #4 in the Marvel Zombies universe. Each cover of Deadpool: Merc with a Mouth primarily pays homage to assorted American films — such as Jaws, Scarface, The Graduate and Pretty Woman — but also homages a comic and a rock album. The covers for Deadpool: Merc with a Mouth were drawn by Arthur Suydam, who also drew the covers for several comic series featuring the Marvel Zombies characters.
