    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deadpool

    In the storyline Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe, the X-Men send Deadpool to a mental hospital for therapy. The doctor treating him is actually Psycho-Man in disguise, who attempts to torture and brainwash Deadpool into becoming his personal minion. The procedure fails, but leaves Deadpool even more mentally unhinged, erasing the "serious" and "Screwball" voices in his head and replacing them with a voice that only wants destruction. Under "Evil Voice's" influence, Deadpool develops a more nihilistic world view and as a result, after killing Psycho-Man by repeatedly smashing him against a desk, he begins assassinating every superhero and supervillain on Earth, starting with the Fantastic Four, in an apparent attempt to rebel against his comic book creators. The book ends with him breaking into the "real" world and confronting the Marvel writers and artists who are writing the book. He says to the reader that once he's done with this universe, "I'll find you soon enough."

    if one were so inclined, one could find extraordinary philosophical depth in what is being done here. first let me say this was an act of genius on the part of the writers; a marvel character who's only powers are his healing factor and enhanced physical abilities, manages to kill even the omega level and celestial characters, working his way up to 'the one above all', the creator of the marvel universe.

    now there's a long story line here and a lot of shit's involved, but the primary plot line is this: deadpool is institutionalized and a evil doctor (psycho man) tries to brainwash him, but his plan backfires. instead of turning deadpool into his minion, he inadvertently creates a third voice in deadpool's head, which instructs deadpool to kill everyone. deadpool also becomes convinced that all the people in the marvel universe are stuck in a vicious cycle of recurrence, puppets written into life by the malevolent creators (writers) of the marvel universe. he then sets out to enter the 'ideaverse' assassinate his way to the top with 'metacidal' rage, destroy the writers, and end the cycle.

    discuss (or not):

    1. what is the third voice? wouldn't it also be a creation of 'the one above all'? but why would the creator do that? or, perhaps, is there at least one thing 'the one above all' did not create and cannot control?

    2. is deadpool's personality as a constant, sarcastic joker with a clever quip for everything, a coincidence, or does it bear some semblance to the overman type, the trickster type; he who laughs last, etc. for one who understands the true nature of the multiverse and its endless recurrence, deadpool, as such, has the appropriate attitude.... does he not? what's left of the spirit of seriousness?

    3. by breaking the fourth wall, an attribute unique only to him, is deadpool merging our universe with his own?  

    to get right to it, go to 2:08



    note: the red quote box is the new, third voice. the 'serious' and 'screwball' voices are no longer.

    oh i see what's going on... he's transported into the dimension of fiction and has to start his killing in the classics world (e.g., moby dick). ah.

    the voicing is horrible though. it is a comic book, after all. they need to make a movie out of this... x-men and the avengers can wait. this is the real shit.

    okay so the 'killustrated' series never makes it through the classics. i didn't know this. here's part four of another series... which shows the conclusion.

    nevermind kernel sanders. this is what comic book dorks do when they make videos, apparently.

    Seen em both, and they were great. What I meant was, a movie based on that issue... that storyline.

    deadpool interviews applicants for his new team of superheros, x-force (isn't that a little derivative?)
