Get Set for Deadpool Vs. Thanos #1 … Wait, What?


One worships Death. The other one is dead, at least last time I checked. Nevertheless, Marvel has announced that the Merc With a Mouth and the Titan With a Temper are going to have one heck of a battle this September in Deadpool vs. Thanos #1.

Naturally, their fight begins over a girl. Here’s what Marvel is saying about the four-issue limited series:

"We all know the story of Thanos – the man who single-handedly turned bejeweled gloves into THE deadliest and most fashion-forward weapons in the entire universe. But did you know he also shares an ex with good ol’ Wade Wilson? It’s true! The cosmic lady known only as Death! And when her mysterious disappearance causes everyone in the universe to stop dying – both her former flames take an interest."

Love triangles are tricky under the most ideal of circumstances, and since it appears Deadpool and Thanos might have to team up to get to the bottom of Death’s disappearance, this one is bound to be more explosive than most. Let’s just come right out and say it: this is one partnership that is guaranteed to end in violence.

Now you might be asking yourself, “Self, how does this fit in with everything else going on in Marvel comics? You know, Secret Wars and all that?” I’d tell yourself not to worry about that, because it’s likely to be set either before or after that event. You know, sometime when Deadpool is actually alive. Also, I’d stop talking to myself out loud if I was you, because people will look at you funny.

In any case, writer Tim Seeley and artist Elmo Bondoc are ready to unleash this special brand of havoc, and we’ll certainly give you more details on Deadpool vs. Thanos #1 before the collision takes place this fall.
