Here’s something we’ve all seen before, Marvel Comics is set to officially kill off the fan-favorite character Deadpool as part of the anti-hero’s 250th issue celebration.
Deadpool #250 (A.K.A. issue #45) is written by Gerry Duggan, Brian Posehn, Ben Acker, Ben Blacker, Nick Giobanetti, Paul Scheer, Jason Mantzoukas, Mike Drucker and more with pencils by Mike Hawthorne, Scott Koblish, and others. The solicitation reads as follows:
That’s right—if you add together all the Deadpool series (creatively) issue 45 is the big 250th issue of Deadpool! What better way to celebrate than to end the series? In our over-sized main story, ULTIMATUM comes at Deadpool for revenge, so he has no choice but to take them on—ALL OF THEM. Then, in an Infinity Gauntlet crossover, what would Deadpool do if he got the six gems from Thanos? Plus: a slew of stories showcasing Deadpool’s closest friends and allies by special guest writers! Also, SPOILER: Deadpool dies at the end of the issue.
It’s also interesting to note that the ‘death’ was announced just shortly after the announcement that Fox is pushing through with their plans for Deadpool movie starring Ryan Reynolds once again.
