From Domino to Wolverine, these are Wade Wilson's finest duos!

In celebration of Deadpool’s big summer, which sees him kick off a new series with Skottie Young and Nic Klein’s DEADPOOL #1 on June 6, we thought we’d look back at the rare moments when Wade Wilson wasn’t being an unshowered good-for-nothing selfish jerk. Instead, we found a few favorite moments when he was just being an unshowered good-for-nothing only slightly selfish jerk.

Here are the greatest Deadpool team-ups in history.

Child Bullseye

Child Bullseye? More like Calfseye, right? No? Okay. Please keep reading.

Starting off small, we have adolescent Bullseye, who teamed up with Deadpool in a rebellion against academia. In the pages of Daniel Way and Paco Medina’s DEADPOOL, a young, downtrodden Bullseye was being bullied at school. But don’t worry, weirdo pimple-faced nerds! Cousin DP came to the rescue by just straight up burning down the entire building.

This whole event may have been a hallucination, but with Deadpool you never know. What we do know is that these two eventual frenemies delightfully took things way too far in this (potential) first ever team-up. Arson rules! *

Wolverine/Old Man Logan

These two just can’t seem to get away from each other. Or at least Wolverine can’t get away from Deadpool.

Much like any relationship founded in love (of stabbing bad guys) and understanding (their boiling, uncontrollable rage), these two crazy kids have endured a lot together: multiple murder attempts, poorly thought-out heroics, and the 1990s. But, as perfectly exemplified in DEADPOOL VS. OLD MAN LOGAN, they continue to grin and bear it (Deadpool grins and Wolverine bears it).

Official ‘ship name: Poolverine. Don’t look up the “fan art.”

Hellcow

Once a prized dairy cow named Bessie, Hellcow’s idyllic life was cut short—sort of—when a bite from Dracula himself turned her into an undead blood sucking bovine. Roughly 300 years later, in DEADPOOL TEAM-UP #885, Hellcow was serving as the captive mutant milk machine for Dr. Killgore, a mad scientist who was also holding the Regenerating Degenerate under lock and key.

After Deadpool convinced Hellcow to band together for a daring escape, the duo endured a range of bodily function mishaps before succeeding in taking down Killgore. They’re not saying “Moo,” they’re saying “Bruuuce!”

Domino

Just like a group of old men sitting around a folding table, Deadpool loves dominoes. And one in particular.

A hired gun herself, Neena Thurman knows all about the #MercLife, not to mention the #MutatedExperimentLife. And after a rocky introduction in Deadpool’s debut comic NEW MUTANTS #98, Domino has grown to understand Wade more than most. It’s likely for this reason that she usually treats him like an adult. She gets it—jokes hide the pain, people!

Her ability to call Deadpool out on any shenanigans he pulls makes her a great foil for the old ‘Pool Man. And, at times, she adds a little family-approved flirtation to Deadpool’s traditionally risqué banter.

Bob, Agent of Hydra

Bob wanted to live a normal existence—eat chips, mow the lawn, watch TV with his wife. And what did his wife want? Dental insurance. So Bob got himself an average nine-to-five working at the local criminal organization, Hydra.

Deadpool wanted a friend—someone to boss around, blame the voices on, eat chips with. And what did his friends want? Um…what friends? Wade Wilson has never had any friends, so he went looking for a buddy to team-up with during his anti-heroic adventures.

Bob and Deadpool got together in CABLE AND DEADPOOL #38 and, ever since, have done everything that best friends do. They’ve gotten scurvy, time traveled with dinosaurs, been severely injured, battled Dracula, and eaten chips. Chips rule! And also arson rules too! **

Spider-Man

This one-sided bromance is what comic book dreams are made of.

Sure, Peter Parker might be a morally upstanding super hero, and sure, Deadpool generally doesn’t care about which civilian the Hulk accidentally sits on. But what matters here is the beautifully juxtaposed powers and sensibilities that these two bring to the table. And though they’ve had their ups and downs, these resident jokesters have developed a vaguely mutual respect for one another over the years. And that relationship is perfectly displayed in their ongoing joint series SPIDER-MAN/DEADPOOL. The third star of the book? That gorgeous forward slash.

Cable

Of course, the top spot on this ultimate team-up list goes to none other than Cable.

Nathan Summers’ explosive relationship with Deadpool has been the basis for many, many, many, many series over the years. Whether the two are allies or actively trying to kill each other is more or less a 50/50 toss-up, but regardless, the chemistry between these two can’t be denied. Cable’s time traveling stoicism perfectly compliments Deadpool’s gross face, and it all adds up to the best buddy cop throwdown anybody could ask for. If you love bulging old man pecs and giant belts, this team-up is for you.

Hawkeye is getting the band back together -- but who's on the team this time?

Kelly Thompson—writer of HAWKEYE, ROGUE & GAMBIT, CAPTAIN PHASMA, and more—is getting ready to reassemble a Marvel team from decades past! This week, we’re excited to announce WEST COAST AVENGERS, written by Thompson with art by Stefano Caselli! The ’80s book is back for an ongoing series run with another super group of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, and this time it has not one but two Hawkeyes!

The original West Coast Avengers was started by Clint Barton’s Hawkeye. This time around, Clint is joined by the current Hawkeye Kate Bishop and a few of their super powered friends! We talked with Kelly Thompson about what we can expect from the new WEST COAST AVENGERS and she had a lot to say about this wacky, disparate group finding a common thread:

“They all need and want something from being on that team together. Kate needs to help save LA, and she needs help to do that because villains have taken notice that there are no Super Heroes out there. I think there’s part of her that misses [being on a team] too. She’s been doing her own thing, on her own, and that’s cool. But she was the one, who, with no powers, was like ‘I’m leading the Young Avengers, I’m the boss.’”

As far as the original Hawkeye goes, Thompson says Clint is “trying to help Kate” but “doesn’t want to admit how much it’s fun for him to mentor.”

Other characters joining the West Coast fun are Gwenpool, whom Thompson describes as “a really weird X-factor” who will be going through some “really interesting” relationship developments; Quentin Quire, who is “always trouble,” but “clearly wants a family”; and Kate’s boyfriend Johnny, who is in “way over his head,” a situation that Thompson is very eager to explore.

But with every super group is a wild card, and according to Thompson, that wild card is America Chavez:

“I think America is the biggest question mark, and I think that’s something we’re excited to explore: Why does she come back to LA? Why does she come back to be with Kate? Does she miss [the group dynamic] too? Because America, she likes to play things a little close to the vest.”

Like the original West Coast Avengers, the team will be living together—but it’s not quite the same Tony Stark-funded flat that we saw in the ‘80s. Instead, to get funding, the team will be part of a reality show while living together under the same roof.

Will things stop being polite and start getting real? The new, ongoing series starts when WEST COAST AVENGERS #1 hits stores on Wednesday, August 22 so you can find out then! Make sure to visit your local comic book store and pre-order today!

Check out the full description of the first issue:

HAWKEYE (KATE BISHOP). HAWKEYE (CLINT BARTON). A guy named FUSE. Never have they ever been called “the big three” of…anything. And now here they are, reunited for, okay, well, it’s only the second time ever. Thank god they also brought AMERICA CHAVEZ, GWENPOOL and KID OMEGA. Wait. What? That’s right, it’s the new West Coast Avengers, son. And you better hope they can figure out how to save the world because BIG things are headed for the West Coast.

Watch as the acclaimed writer goes inside the tortured mind of Eddie Brock!

A primordial evil has been awakened beneath the streets of New York City, and with it, something equally evil has awakened in that most Wicked of Webslingers. On stands now, writer Donny Cates and artist Ryan Stegman‘s VENOM #1 has launched a groundbreaking new era for the symbiote.

Watch the exclusive interview above, as Cates teases this strange and exceptionally toxic chapter for Venom and Eddie Brock. “Something’s happening to the symbiote that terrifies him. It’s starting to speak in this other language that Eddie can’t understand and it’s driving him insane,” he explains. “The symbiote is starting to be very cruel and it’s starting to kind of operate without Eddie’s consent.”

Much like Eddie Brock, the writer himself has been empowered by the vicious might of the symbiote. “I’ve been let off the leash on this thing,” he says, “and I’m kind of going ballistic.”

Marvel Studios' Little Free Library campaign is cultivating young readers and building community.

Last week, we announced Disney Publishing Worldwide was teaming up with Little Free Library and First Book to bring Avengers: Infinity War-themed library stands to cultivate young readers and build community through epic storytelling and free access to books.

Author Brandon T. Snider read an excerpt from “Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War: The Cosmic Quest Vol. 1: Beginning” following the unveiling. The “Little Marvel Library” in Los Angeles is dedicated to a young boy named Semmi Veasey, who battled brain cancer, and deeply impacted the Newton community. Councilmember Curren D. Price, Jr. of Council District 9; LAPD Captain Michael Rimkunas, Area Commanding Officer; Newton Division Newton Area Community Safety Partnership Team; as well as special guest Captain America were in attendance. Take a look at the gallery above!

Skottie Young reveals what's in store for the Merc with a Mouth!

We may have bid farewell to DESPICABLE DEADPOOL, but with one end comes a fresh start — and DEADPOOL #1, written by Skottie Young with artists Nic Klein and Scott Hepburn. The issue hits stands on June 6 but we have a first look at the book with art from Scott Hepburn and some insight from Skottie Young himself.

Upon our return to Wade Wilson’s World, we find Deadpool trying to get his merc work back in gear. After working with super groups like the Avengers, X-Force, and S.H.I.E.L.D., he’s back to working alone, and just in time — there’s a huge threat to deal with, and Deadpool just happens to be available! Lucky us! But first — doesn’t every hero deserve an origin story in Issue #1? Deadpool certainly thinks so, and that’s just what we get in these preview pages, whether we like it or not.

We asked Skottie what else we can expect from Issue #1 and how he’ll be denying Deadpool a peaceful existence as he starts merc’ing all over again: “Deadpool is trying to go back to his roots of merc for hire. Like any new business, things are off to a slow start. Basically, he’s a freelancer, and for the last 17 years, I’ve learned that there’s rarely peace and harmony in freelancing. It’s always a grind to find a balance. Deadpool is going take a ride on that roller coaster in issue #1 and beyond.”

But if you think we’re going to see high drama from this new Deadpool run, you can check your tears at the door. Skottie assures us that this will be full of the humor you love:  “There’s a reason I’ve been wanting to write this character for years. I get him. Like in my real life, I can use Wade’s humor to entertain, mask pain, distract or just flat out annoy you, intentionally or unintentionally. Listen to the stories of almost any comedian and you quickly realize where the ‘sad clown’ cliche came from. Deadpool is a Sad Clown with guns and swords and a mutant healing factor. So let’s change the label to ‘SAD VIOLENT KILLER FOR HIRE CLOWN.'”

DEADPOOL #1 will hit stands and be available digitally on June 6, 2018 with the amazing pages below by Scott Hepburn! Pre-order with your local comic book store!

Worlds collide in Spider-Men and Avengers vs. X-Men!

For over 50 years, Spider-Man has been a sensational standout in the Marvel Universe and the web-slinger is now back on the silver screen once again in Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War”! In celebration of his memorable history, we present Spidey’s spectacular step-by-step story…

Carlie Cooper deduced Spider-Man’s secret identity in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #673, and the web-slinger found himself honored by the city for saving it from the spider-plague. Later, he battled the Vulture and his crew in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #674 and AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #675, and witnessed the return of both the android Vision and Norman Osborn in AVENGERS #19.

During the Kree invasion of Earth in FANTASTIC FOUR #600, Spidey welcomed his good friend Johnny Storm back to the land of the living and joined him and the Annihilation Wave in FANTASTIC FOUR #601 to confront the Mad Celestials in FANTASTIC FOUR #602. Galactus fell in battle against the powerful beings in FANTASTIC FOUR #603, but future versions of Franklin and Valeria Richards arrived to turn the tide and allow the wallcrawler to return home in FANTASTIC FOUR #604.

Spidey and his fellow heroes dealt with the revelation of Norman Osborn’s newest “Avengers” in NEW AVENGERS #19 and clashed directly with them in NEW AVENGERS #20. Following their retreat from the fight, Osborn’s Thor clone followed and confronted the team in NEW AVENGERS #21, prompting another hasty flight and Spidey’s interrogation of Victoria Hand, Osborn’s former associate, in NEW AVENGERS #22. In NEW AVENGERS #23, the heroes finally gained the upper hand with their foes.

An ailing Doctor Octopus outlines his latest scheme to his new Sinister Six in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #676, and Spidey and Daredevil began investigating a case concerning the Black Cat in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #677. At Horizon Labs, the webslinger stepped into a fellow scientist’s new time doorway in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #678 and into a devastated New York one day in the future, prompting a race against entropy itself in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #679. Afterward, Morbius the Living Vampire turned up at the company, as well as the Lizard, in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #679.1.

The wallcrawler confronted a monstrous Norman Osborn with his teammates in AVENGERS #24, then blasted into space with the Human Torch in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #680 to tangle with Doc Ock’s octobots and zombie astronauts on an orbiting station. As its orbit decayed, the heroes moved to rescue the crew and themselves from the compromised station in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #681. Back on terra firma, the webslinger learned of the incredible Phoenix Force’s approach to Earth in NEW AVENGERS #24, and stood beside the Avengers as they scrambled to head off Hope Summers, a young mutant targeted by the Phoenix, in AVENGERS VS. X-MEN #1 and AVENGERS #25.

Spidey and Wolverine tracked Hope down in AVENGERS VS. X-MEN #2, but the girl escaped after besting them both. Captured X-Men escaped the heroes through trickery in AVENGERS VS. X-MEN #3, and Spidey flew off to Latveria in AVENGERS VS. X-MEN #4 to attempt to stop the Juggernaut and his posse. Later, our hero avoided the Phoenix-possessed X-Men in AVENGERS VS. X-MEN #7, but clashed with a possessed Namor in Wakanda in AVENGERS VS. X-MEN #8. Hiding out with other Avengers in the mystical K’un-Lun, Spidey imparted a lesson in responsibility to Hope in NEW AVENGERS #27, and later while in Limbo battling Magik fell to a savage beating by the X-Men in AVENGERS VS. X-MEN #9. The Avengers assembled once more when Cyclops gained the full Phoenix Force in AVENGERS VS. X-MEN #11, but he lost it to Hope in AVENGERS VS. X-MEN #12.

Mayor Jameson announced he’d close Horizon Labs in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #682, and Spidey gathered the Avengers together when Doc Ock announced his intention to “save the world” before dying. The Sinister Six crushed the team in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #683, and world governments decided to give into Ock’s demands while the webslinger fought the Sandman in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #684. Wanted by the authorities, Spidey and his friends tried to stop further satellite construction by Ock in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #685, but the villain took control of the heroes using Peter Parker’s own inventions in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #686. In the end, some of the Sinister Six turned against Ock in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #687, while Spidey fought the man himself, but felt he failed overall when the Rhino and Silver Sable died in the final skirmishes of the war.

Mysterio opened up a portal to an alternate Earth in SPIDER-MEN #1, through which Spider-Man fell and met Miles Morales, the webslinger of that world. Captured by S.H.I.E.L.D. in SPIDER-MEN #2, Peter joined forces with Miles to push Mysterio back to his corner until the Ultimates arrived in SPIDER-MEN #3. Our hero made the sour acquaintance of the world’s May Parker and Gwen Stacy in SPIDER-MEN #4, and made it back to his own universe after defeating Mysterio in SPIDER-MEN #5.

After helping the Fantastic Four fight the Maestro in FANTSTIC FOUR #609 and A.I.M. in FANTASTIC FOUR #610, Spider-Man investigated a strange connection between Morbius and the Lizard in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #688. Curt Connors retained the Lizard’s evil mind after transforming in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #689, and attempted to change back to his scaly form in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #690. Spidey managed to cure him and all his lizard-lackeys in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #691, thankfully.

The past assailed Peter Parker in the form of an old warehouse in PETER PARKER:SPIDER-MAN #156.1, the new Vulture in SENSATIONAL SPIDER-MAN #33.1 and SENSATIONAL SPIDER-MAN #33.2, and the so-called “Brooklyn Avengers” in WEB OF SPIDER-MAN #129.1 and WEB OF SPIDER-MAN #129.2. A young man named Andy gained super powers from “Parker Particles” at Horizon Labs and became a hero called Alpha in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #692, got kidnapped by the Jackal in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #693, found it hard to handle fame in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #694 and lost some of his powers to a draining invention of Peter’s.

Spidey reflected upon Luke Cage and Jessica Jones’ departure from Avengers Mansion in NEW AVENGERS #31, but when the hero’s spider-sense malfunctioned due to Tiberius Stone’s device in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #695, he juggled two battling Hobgoblins and the Kingpin in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #696. Afterward, the Avengers received a distress call from the Microverse in AVENGERS #31, and the web-slinger stayed behind in Central Park as the team’s founders shrunk down into the subatomic realm to answer it in AVENGERS #32.

The most prolific Deadpool artist ever pens his goodbye to the character.

This week’s DESPICABLE DEADPOOL #300 is a monumental moment in the history of the Merc with a Mouth.

Issue #300 not only packs plenty of surprises for Wade Wilson, but it’s also the final Deadpool story for both writer Gerry Duggan and artist Mike Hawthorne. Duggan has elevated the Regeneratin’ Degenerate to new heights since he began on the book in 2012, and Hawthorne has drawn more pages of the character than anyone in history.

In celebration of this classically-Deadpool, foul-mouthed farewell, we asked Hawthorne to sum up his Wade Wilson experience in his own words. So, Mike, take it away…

I think most people think they know exactly what Wade Wilson is about. And I thought I did too. A punchline with real punches. He’s a comedy routine set to explosions. He’s grilled clown and shredded straight-man all rolled into a tortilla and deep fried.

Then I learned more about him, and his fans.

I met a lady once who’d survived cancer and told me Wade was her hero. I don’t know why it never occurred to me that his audience would include this woman looking at me with a mix of pride and genuine affection for this character that helped her get through some dark stuff.

I just assumed it was all goofballs like me. I’m self-centered like that.

So year after year, page after page, I got to know this guy. Draw his face angry, and sad. Lots of times smiling. And I got to love the creep for being so willing to beat himself up to find something like happiness, knowing deep down he kinda doesn’t deserve it.

Let me tell you this joke my kid told me: A Horse walks into a bar. The bartender says, “Hey, why the long face?” The Horse says, “Alcoholism is killing and destroying my family.”

I laughed my ass off when she told me that joke. The joke isn’t perfect, you might not even think it was funny…but the way this kid delivered it was magic. I also felt a bit of terror at my laughing because I had an uncle that drank himself to death.

It occurred to me that this was my job with Wade—to sell all the jokes, with all their humor and horror, and hopefully make you feel like Wade is as real to you as he is to me. I tried to work some of that magic my kid showed me, knowing I’d brick a lot of those shots. But I tried like hell. Promise.

Wade is that one friend you want to hide from, but when he does show up, you catch yourself suppressing a grin. He’s a terrible friend, father, husband…but he’d probably die for you if things got really, really bad.

So, here’s to Wade Wilson! I hope the next crew loves you as much as we did.

Sorry I hit you with a planet once.

Con cariño,
Mike Hawthorne

Catch the end of an era with DESPICABLE DEADPOOL #300, right now.
