Black Panther vs. Deadpool???
An all-new mini-series has been announced pitting the genius King of Wakanda against the zany “Merc with a Mouth” hitting stands in October, 2018. Two of the most popular characters in Marvel are going toe-to-toe in BLACK PANTHER VS. DEADPOOL, the battle none of us could have seen coming. Will it be a knock-down, drag-out battle or will it start that way and morph into a team-up against a bigger foe? Will it have us laughing out loud or broodingUnfortunately but fortunately, We will have to wait until the first issue arrives this Fall.
Check out Marvel’s press release and first cover image below:
“Deadpool has gone up against almost everyone in the Marvel Universe…and now, that roster includes the legendary Black Panther in BLACK PANTHER VS. DEADPOOL, a new story from Lockjaw and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert writer Daniel Kibblesmith and artist Ricardo Lopez Ortiz (Hit-Girl, Civil War II: Kingpin).
For a reason he’d rather not disclose (because, well, it makes him look bad!) Deadpool needs a piece of Vibranium…and the only way to get Vibranium is to go through the Black Panther himself! But Deadpool soon learns that his unconventional methods don’t exactly work against the king of the most technologically advanced country on the planet…
“Featuring a brawl you can only get in comics (for now anyway), BLACK PANTHER VS. DEADPOOL is the best of both worlds, equal parts Black Panther/Wakanda and Deadpool/Crazytown,” said Editor Wil Moss. “In bouncing these two characters off each other (and sometimes through each other), Daniel and Ricardo have found some really fascinating insights into what makes them tick as individuals.”
Don’t miss the throw-down of the century when BLACK PANTHER VS. DEADPOOL comes to comic shops this October!
