The serum worked. Deadpool is mortal. Time to die. Today I will be reviewing Deadpool #53. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
So let’s talk about the book. Deadpool is now human, supposedly, after being stabbed with the serum by Bob. The one Wolverine was shot with didn’t work on him because the serum is solely generated to work on Deadpool. Too bad Bob made a deal with Tombstone to allow him to deliver the death blow to Deadpool and that isn’t what Deadpool wants. Now his actions might cause the death of Bob, because X-Force is pissed at being lied to and are gunning for Wade’s head. And that’s the book.
So let’s talk opinions. This issue was pointless, if you ask me. A whole issue of explaining what happened in the last three issues. That’s a waste of space and money. We could have used this issue to sum up and end the story arc but no, we have to drag it out for another issue. What exactly was revealed this issue? Bob is the ultimate fool for trusting Deadpool. Now Wade must choose between his desires and the life of his only friend. OK. Did we need an entire issue to say that? Could have done it in three pages if you ask me. Then use the rest of the book to resolve the arc. I really wish that the writers of today would learn to do one or two issue story arcs like comics of the past. Those were worth the money. Today, we pay too much money for no story. This issue had nothing at all. No plot progression. No humor. No inner monologueing. No action. Nothing even remotely Deadpoolish. A complete fail. Only the art was nice. Very animeish. Not too detailed but clean, simple and to the point. This book has slowly been going downhill, if you ask me, and this story arc is not helping it out of that ditch. Unless a drastic change happens soon, (like a new writer or a new direction) this potentially great character will fade out of notoriety. I pray that doesn’t happen. I pray next issue is amazing on all levels and restores my faith in this writer, because right now, I feel like quitting this title. That’s my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.
