Can Mark Waid or Joe Kelly announce their return to the character?

@soberchimera - shit how about Fabien Niecieza? I'd love him to come back for a new Cable & Deadpool miniseries or something

@PapaSpank54 - Garth Ennis would be great too, he would actually make the character funny and violent in the comics again.

@soberchimera - Deadpool is missing the darker edge he has in the 90s. Always trying to do better and [frick]ing up, doing some dark and twisted shit, etc.

Does Rob Liefeld own any copyright for Deadpool I feel like he does

@Thing94 - i believe he does since he is the main creator, he may get a fat check everytime they use deadpool somehwere

@braunermegda - Doubt it, it's a work made for hire, so Marvel likely owns it outright. He sure as shit gobbles up the spotlight every time a new DP movie rolls out, though.

@ClintThaHamster - Also the fact it was a clone at first of a DC character would complicate legal claims but not an expert on when things changed with regard to copyrights cos know at some point it shifted where they did have to start paying some/more residuals for work and less able to hide behind the work for hire thing. I'm always in two minds on a lot of all of that stuff cos if someone creates a meh character and another comes along and turns them into a great one adds questions on it all too. Think it should be enough that creators can make and sell art featuring the characters they created, assuming they can legaly, without also getting a cut of the profits from adaptions they had no active part in making.

@Apophis71 - "if someone creates a meh character and another comes along and turns them into a great one"

The Bob Kane/Bill Finger conundrum.

@Thing94 - Yeah he does, he got a nice cheque for the first Deadpool movie.

This guy has been coasting on creating a generic Deathstroke rip-off, who was revamped into a more fun and compelling character by more creative people, ever since the end of the 90's.
soberchimera
soberchimera - 2/9/2024, 2:02 PM
@FinnishDude - If anything, Deadpool is more of a Spider-Man (humor), Snake Eyes (disfigured, dual katatas) ripoff with a dash of Wolverine (healing factor).
Clintthahamster
Clintthahamster - 2/9/2024, 2:14 PM
@soberchimera - DEATHstroke, DEADpool. Slade Wilson, Wade Wilson. One is a highly trained assassin and mercenary with a military backgrond and a healing factor, the other is a highly trained assassin and mercenary with military background and a healing factor.

Wolverine, Spidey, etc were certainly influences (not like Liefeld ever had an original idea) but Deathstrok is pretty clearly in the mix.

Apophis71 - 2/9/2024, 2:25 PM
@ClintThaHamster - TBF both Marvel and DC have made constant ripoffs of each other AND of creations modern or historic from other sources for most of their history so...

...that isn't to negate the the original Deadpool was one of the most blatant cases but in art everything is based on something prior even when not so obvious.

The thing that most can probably agree upon however is even if he kept the general look DP evolved into and interest and less generic character over time into one who became much loved. Whereas originaly think it would have been very fair to say Deathstroke was far superior to DP, now Wade is I'd say by far the more popular and possibly more interesting for many.

@ClintThaHamster - Deathstroke can't even regrow an eye haha.
Clintthahamster
Clintthahamster - 2/9/2024, 2:55 PM
@Apophis71 - Oh, for sure. As an artist myself (well, an amateur punk rock bass player) I rip off other artists/songwriters all the time, sometimes intentionally (I call it quoting or interpolating, but let's be real, it's a rip off.) I was just taking issue with the assertion that Deadpool wasn't at least a little bit of a Deathstroke clone.

@soberchimera - well, eyes are very hard. You got all those rods and cones and whatnot.

@FinnishDude - never bought a deadpool comic, but I have enjoyed the two movies. To me Deadpool is closer to she-hulk than Deathstroke.
FinnishDude
FinnishDude - 2/10/2024, 9:57 AM
@SpideyQuad - Deadpool in the movies or post-90's comics is not, in terms of personality and pathos, the same Deadpool Liefeld created.
SpideyQuad
SpideyQuad - 2/10/2024, 5:05 PM
@FinnishDude - ok

Really it was other writers that made deadpool the character people love

He created a deathstroke knock off

Joe Kelly is the reason Deadpool got popular. Was Joe Kelly on set?

Watched a documentary about Liefeld and it’s so strange how good of an artist he actually was when he started and then strangely got worse 😐

I used to hate Leifeld/the 90s/all the guns on every hero/the pouches/how men and women were drawn, etc.

But now, f*ck, bring back the 90s, bring back anything to replace the garbage that is now.

HOPEFULLY PHASE 6+ BE LIKE:

He should have his artwork scanned for patterns and turned into an AI model and produce it that way. I wouldn't have a problem with the real artist using AI to create new art that is like what they did in youth and good health. It would be better than watching someone like Neal Adams do crazy proportions or singers like Axl Rose or Rob Halford sing badly on new tracks.
KennKathleen
KennKathleen - 2/10/2024, 1:48 AM
@PartyKiller - interesting concept...

This seems like a ‘farewell tour’ from KISS, or Ozzy situation. He’ll want to feel relevant again at some point, he’ll be back.

AnthonyVonGeek - 2/9/2024, 5:49 PM
@Dunejedi - true. Kiss has been having farewell tours since around 2000 I think. 🤣
