SPOILERS IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHO THE BIG BAD DEADPOOL VILLAIN IS WHO SHOWS UP AT THE END OF ISSUE #2.
First off, I think we can all agree that this issue has the best comic book cover in the history of all comic book covers because Pandapool. Now that that’s out of the way, we can get to the good stuff. Not that anything is better than Pandapool, the panda who endangers you. Anyway, Dreadpool, the Deadpool from the rest of the Deadpool Killogy series is seeking to end the existence of those stuck in the written form, or as he calls them fictional characters trapped in “the continuity,” “a cycle of endless suffering for the entertainment of others.”
In order to take down the bad guys/good guys trying to interfere with his goals, Dreadpool sends in the most dangerous ‘Pool of all, Galactipool who hungers for sustenance. Sadly missing? Silver Surferpool to herald Galactipool’s arrival. As if this wasn’t enough, our heroes also have to battle various other ‘Pools, including Wolverinepool who continues to yell out beer types and Wolverine catchphrases instead of being constructive and Evil Deadpool who our Earth’s Deadpool is still pretty upset at for everything that happened in their arc. And if that’s not nearly enough Deadpools for you, don’t worry, more are coming in the fourth and final issue which concludes the Killogy. It came too soon!
