Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe

This is my first comic book review, and I wanted it to be special. I consider it a milestone, if you will. It’s something that, to me personally, I can look back and say to myself, “Yeah, I’m pretty damn happy I did that.” Today, I am reviewing the Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool.

Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool

When the Deadpool movie came out around Valentine’s Day, I really wasn’t that into the hype. I’ve been a fan of Deadpool for years, and I thought that making a movie out of it would be hard to do. Casting, funding, and general plot are all very necessary to make any good movie great. I was just plain blown out of the water with the results. The movie was so great and I had an amazing time. I really recommend this movie. Thank you, Ryan Reynolds, for doing an amazing job of doing this anti-hero justice.

Now, the graphic novel I’m reviewing is actually much, MUCH darker. Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe is one gritty comic book. Ladies and gentleman, this book is One Hundred Percent Yes.

Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe was written by Cullen Bunn, drawn by Dalibor Talajic, and colored by Lee Loughridge. The comic is based around an alternate reality in which Deadpool is apprehended by the X-Men to quote unquote “make him better”. Only after typing quote unquote before putting quotes, do I realize that it creates a grammar paradox that is sure to kill us all. Only one more reason to make my voice HEARD!!!!!! Anyway, as you may figure out for yourself, the experiment does NOT go as planned. This leaves Deadpool with a third voice in his head, supposedly, killing the other two voices inside of him and…and eating them. Introducing mental cannibalism. I didn’t even know that was a thing.

I don’t want to give too many spoilers to those who have not read the book and probably want to in the near future, so, spoil it, I will not. I will, however, tell you my personal opinion of the book. It’s amazing. The art style alone in this comic leaves me breathless. The combined efforts of Dalbor and Lee, who I am assuming by their names are bound to make an awesome cop duo in an action movie, have created what I think is one of the best comics I have personally read in a long, long time. The colors just pop, and the lines are crisp and clear. It just makes me want to sit at a desk and draw some bloody sketches of my own superhero. Oh, did I mention blood? There is so much blood, death, and gore. As a personal fan of that shit, I have to say, bravo, my good gentleman, bravo.

It’s a quick read. It only took me about a half hour to finish. This comic book is comprised of about eight volumes. I highly recommend picking it up.

I am not suggesting that you stay home and watch movies on New Year’s Eve if you want to go out. In fact, it’s always a bad idea for me. However if that’s what you and possibly a SO or friend have decided to do here are my top picks. Plus you could also watch one before you head out or after you return.

Chaos Theory (2007)



“Are you trying to kill yourself?” “Well, obviously, but I think it’s going to take a little while.”

Chaos Theory is a dark comedy starring Ryan Reynolds. He’s an efficiency expert. The character is somewhat similar to Ben Stiller’s in the abysmal Along Came Polly, except you know, this is an enjoyable movie. He manages his life down to the minute and doesn’t take risks.

One day his schedule is thrown off by his wife (Emily Mortimer). Once that happens he ends up performing a good deed that is misinterpreted by his wife. Then he finds out a big secret about her that leads to him making lists that say things like “Kill Myself”. Instead of doing that he goes wild and does or tries to do a bunch of risky acts that he’d normally never do.

The always amazing Stuart Townsend costars as their playboy best friend (who’s also in love with Reynolds’ wife). Sarah Chalke also makes an appearance. The movie is told using a timeframe of 3 important times in his life, one is the New Year’s Eve that begins his relationship with his wife. In addition to that it touches big time on trying to alter yourself which is very popular this time of year. It sucks that the film didn’t get a wide release. I bet Reynolds was really excited about showing his range in it.

Swingers (1996)

"kiss me you fool". Sorry that's not in the movie, just my imagination.

“How about if I wait six weeks to call. I could tell her I found her number while I was cleaning out my wallet, I can’t remember where we met. I’ll ask her what she looks like and then I’ll ask her if we fucked. How about that? Would that be money?”

No, Swingers is not a New Year’s movie. It’s not set on New Year’s Eve or any specific holiday (that I’m aware of). I suggest it for New Year’s because it’s now sort of a New Year’s tradition for me to watch it around this time of year. One year when I couldn’t go out on NYE I decided to watch some of my favorite movies instead. One of those was Swingers. I think it’s a decent New Year’s choice because it involves a bunch of partying and trying to pick people up.

It’s about a group of friends who are trying to break into acting. Jon Favreau wrote the film and stars in it as the sappy one who is also trying to find love. This was Vince Vaughn’s breakout role. Ron Livingston and Heather Graham costar.

This movie also appears in Top 1990s Movies about Twentysomethings on Netflix Streaming.
