I’ve never read much Deadpool. I’ve got nothing against the character voted in high school as most likely to be twice played by Ryan Reynolds. He’s just never really been something I’ve gone out of my way to spend my money on.
I’ve read some stories here and there like the old school X-Force days and any crossovers like the recent Original Sin and Avengers/X-Men: Axis . Those last crossovers gave me some idea about what was going on with him marrying Shiklah and such. (Looking back at it now, I actually read Deadpool #29– 34 and #36-39. Thanks event tie-ins!)
And speaking of event tie-ins (not the greatest segue, I’m no Watson…thank Doom…), Deadpool’s wife is center stage in this Secret Wars book. Deadpool does play a role, but since he is killed on the first page, that role is mostly as the ghostly narrator.
After the cut I’ll take a spoiler-y look at the surprisingly good Mrs. Deadpool And The Howling Commandos #1, Mrs. Deadpool And The Howling Commandos #2, Mrs. Deadpool And The Howling Commandos #3 and Mrs. Deadpool And The Howling Commandos #4.
