That's not a spoiler.
The title is a spoiler.
After all, it doesn't say, Deadpool Attempts to Kill the Marvel Universe.
And really, that about sums this one up.
Proffessor X decides that it's time Wade got some 'help', and the X-Men pack him off to the loony bin. Unfortunately, therapy has an unwanted side effect for Wilson. He discovers that he's not as crazy as he thought, and embarks on a killin

This had potential. It did not reach it.

I was expecting the story to be executed better (not trying to make puns here...) but the script wasn't tight enough, the tale itself felt weak. With a bit more love and attention, this could have been something darker, more twisted, which captured Deadpool's personality a little better and his 'quirky' qualities. We didn't even get to see anyone put up much of a fight. It all felt... stale. Yes, he breaks the Fourth Wall regularly, but there's usually hu

I get the impression that this is the sort of comic that you will either greatly dislike or love in spite of yourself. Oddly enough, I found myself in the latter camp.

It's the ultimate in gratuitous violence, an entire series created simply to revel in Deadpool's ability to unleash terrifying levels of gory violence. And also his tendency to be divorced from his reality, and to lean heavily on the fourth wall. In this case, he's seeing beyond the fourth wall entirely, and he's far more cracked

Deadpool happens to be one of my favorite superheroes . Though the story's ending was a bit anti-climactic , I fairly enjoyed it . A fun , short read .

Bloody, disturbing, episodic, and absolutely the most perfect Deadpool story that needed to be told.

Contrary to what many of the reviews say, there is a distinct reason Wade sets on killing the entirety of the Marvel Universe... He comes to fully realize that his life, and the lives of everyone in the Marvel Universe, exist only for the entertainment value of an outside observer: Us.

It's not random, it's not pointless, it's not about blood n guts (though they are present in spades). It's about f

It's stupid. It knows it's stupid. I can't give it a 1 star because it's fucking stupid. I want to...but how could I? When Cullen obviously wrote this as it being stupid. Holy hell though half the shit makes no sense.

Listen. I'm not one of those guys who cares who can beat who. Cap vs Spider-man, or Iron-man vs Doom, or whatever. I don't care enough to get into big fights over dumb shit like that. But this book disregards most people's powers and uses of their weapons and skills in order for De

So boring! Deadpool discovers the fourth wall and takes a nihilistic approach of killing everyone, our favorite heroes, with Cullen Bunn literally winking at the end. Probably the most one-dimensional comic I've ever read. ...more
Lashaan Balasingam (Bookidote)
Absolutely ludicrous and wild. It's painful to watch beloved heroes fall in the hands of Deadpool and his brutal methods. What I enjoyed most about this story-arc lies in him breaking the paper fourth wall and bringing the reader to reflect on Deadpool's character concept on a metaphysical level.

Yours truly,

Jeeeeeez I’m sad. I just saw deadpool shoot my favourite in the head (my favourite being Spider-Man)... anyways

Deadpool kills the universe — basically deadpool finds out that the everyone in the marvel universe are just puppets so goes and as the title suggests kills the entire marvel universe to put everyone out of their misery, you even get an awesome ending. ( as everyone loves deadpool breaks the fourth wall)

That was pretty good. I ended up reading the final volume, Deadpool Kills Deadpool, first. But that's all fine and dandy, because I understood where the story was going.

My favorite thing about any Deadpool comic is that he's so funny and aware of the fact that he's fictional, and I thought it was awesome when he actually addressed the reader a couple of times.

Overall, I enjoyed it but I was far from blown away. In their defense, it's hard to be amazing with something this short (four issues).

Not the worst comic I've ever read. I'm fairly new to the 'funny' Deadpool phenomenon. When he first arrived on the scene he was one of those many characters drawn by Liefeld (ugh, who, after 25 years in the biz cannot draw a foot or a realistic expression to save his life...but I digress).

The Deadpool Max line is pretty fun stuff, if inconsistent. But the Marvel Zombies and "Blank vs. the Universe" titles have trashed a lot of established measuring sticks for some of our favorite characters, l

Oh my god! I thought they don't do this terrible comicbooks anymore but I was sadly mistaken. This title is absolute rubbish.

Story? There is none. Deadpool just kills all characters of Marvel Universe. Deaths are shown in a way that makes them completely unemotional and meaningless. Deadpool hiumself is very badly written. There practically are no fun oneliners but we have uninspired broody character that has no control of his destiny.

Artwork fit the story very well. It was very badly drawn.

Probably just a Deadpool fanboy, but the idea of him just murdering everybody appeals to me. And I won't ruin it, but I did enjoy the twist. I do enjoy the idea of Deadpool finally just "losing it" and going crazy and killing everybody. I mean, he's already nuts, but it's nice to see a different kind of Deadpool.

This is really violent, and I got to admit, I get satisfaction out of seeing people like the Fantastic Four die.

It's a must-read, but not if you're looking for some deep story. The titl

Well...this might not have been the best place to start my Deadpool reading...
Some of it was interesting, as in the ways he kills some Marvel superstars, but if he's so badass, why have they never given him anything major to do? I know this is a one-off what if type book, but still, nothing lasting really.

This one was pretty good. A classic that I am just now reading. I think there is a 2nd collection out there where Deadpool does it again. I will look it up. Mindless slaughter of all the Marvel Heroes. What the heck...why not loan Deadpool out to DC and knock off their characters as well?

Tried this via Comixology - grabbed first issue after hearing it recommended by War Rocket Ajax. Not terribly impressed by issue one, so I'm not going to keep reading. No sense of humour, no idea how they'd make this more entertaining to keep up my interest. Perhaps it was an editorial experiment to see how a dead-serious Deadpool would go over. A mostly-wordless merc with a mouth is worth no more than any generic third-tier hero in a DC book.

Update: odd, at Sam's behest I tried this again and I

That was fun, but it actually got rather disturbing too.

This reminded me a bit of Marvel Zombies, where the writers take the familiar (and beloved) Marvel characters and throw them to the wind. It's an alternate universe, so anything can happen. The shit can really hit the fan because in the main Marvel universe, nothing has changed.

This time around we get to see what might happen if Deadpool were to really back up the junk that's always coming out of his mouth. I mean, really. What would happen

If you like comics that are meta, that have a lot of blood and a wicked sense of humor, then this is the comic for you! With only 4 issues, this book tells an action-packed and often hilarious story of Deadpool taking out the entire Marvel Universe. From Avengers to X-Men to Fantastic Four, no one is safe in this graphic novel.

This book should have been titled: “Marvel Does Torture Porn!” ;))
