Review: Deadpool

After years of waiting the fans can finally stand up and lose their minds: Deadpool has arrived. The disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary with a superhuman healing factor, the “Merc with a Mouth” as he is called, has been let loose. He’s ridiculous, rude, funny, loud, tends to break the fourth wall and talk to viewers a lot, and pretty much will shoot anything. Add in some Ryan Reynolds, a few X-Men and you have the next big thing on your hands.

Review: Deadpool’s Art of War

Review: Deadpool’s Art of War

Even Chinese philosopher/strategists from the 6th century BC can become the target of a modern-day super assassin, and Deadpool isn’t about to let a 2500-year distance keep him from fulfilling a contract. After taking out Sun Tzu (and don’t expect an explanation about the whole time-travel issue, because you aren’t getting one), Deadpool stumbles across the military tactician’s masterpiece, The Art of War, and the dollar signs light up in his eyes. Here is a sure-fire ticket to fame, wealth, and the admiration of the world. But how to display a dazzling skill for war strategy on a global level when there isn’t a global war going on? That’s easy: you start one.

What follows is a continuity-free trek through the Marvel universe as Daredevil eggs on Loki to attack both Asgard and then Midgard, eventually dragging every recognizable superhero into the fray, all while keeping his eyes on the one prize that would be worth all of this destruction: a publishing deal.

Deadpool’s Art of War #1 Preview

It’s been called the definitive work on military strategy and tactics. Sun Tzu’s seminal Art of War has influenced warfare for hundreds of years. From battlefields to Boardrooms and beyond, there has never been a work more important when it comes to strategy and preparation. Until now! This Wednesday, Marvel is proud to present DEADPOOL’S ART OF WAR #1 – the first chapter in a new 4-issue limited series adapting its classic and iconic namesake! from New York Times Bestselling writer Peter David (All-New X-Factor, The Incredible Hulk) and fan-favorite artist Scott Koblish (Deadpool)!

The Merc With a Mouth knows a thing or two about combat and tactics, and he’s gearing up to write his own version of Art of War. It’s in the public domain so it’s totally ripe for being ripped off. Times change, and today we have heat seeking missiles and automatic machine guns so how accurate can the original book really be?

Only it’ll take more than a great book if Deadpool wants to outsell the original. His plan? Cause enough war and chaos around the globe so that they’ll have to buy his book! Though he’ll get more than he bargained for when the Asgardians, Avengers, X-Men and more get involved. Be there when military strategy takes a gigantic leap forward in DEADPOOL’S ART OF WAR #1 this week!
