Twenty-five years ago in February 1991, the New Mutants encountered a blabber mouthed mercenary who tore through Xavier's mansion and into the very heart of the 1990s. Now, that self-same degenerate is one of the most popular heroes in the world, an Avenger, and maybe the smelliest and grossest person that tumblr swoons over. Come see how Deadpool reacts to life at the top of the world...(hint: he does not handle it well). PLUS: A full array of stories from Deadpool's new allies, the members of the Mercs for Money! Oh...and I think there is, like...some other Deadpool thing this month people are excited about? I forget what.

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Feb 15, 2016

    Deadpool's story is still the primary selling point in Deadpool #7 and that story checks all the necessary boxes. The forgettable bonus stories don't detract from this selling point in any way, but they aren't going to make anyone feel better about the bloated price. It's still an entertaining Deadpool story, complete with obscene violence and unrepentant immaturity. As the failure of Wolverine Origins definitively proved, we wouldn't have Deadpool any other way.

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Feb 10, 2016

    Deadpool has survived 25 years and he's still riding high on his success. We've seen some highs and lows with the character over the years and he's never been more popular than he is now. There are some readers that frown upon the oversized and higher priced issues, but with so many great creators involved, it's worth the price of admission. The only downside is Deadpool is not the main focus in all of the stories. If you're enjoying Deadpool's Mercs for Money, this adds a lot in establishing their motives for working for Deadpool. Join in the celebration and throw down your ten dollars to party with Deadpool. There's a lot to enjoy here. Read Full Review

    So here's to you, Wade Wilson. You've survived so much -- pulled yourself from the floor of the Marvel Universe to become one of their most viable cash cows. You're confusing. You're insane. You smell terrible. And you might just become the hamburger face of the company. Not bad for a 25th birthday. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jessica Petrecz Feb 13, 2016

    When you pick up a giant oversized anniversary issue for a character it has an expectation to be a super celebration of them and all that makes that character great. The first part of the book did deliver on those expectations because we saw Deadpool kill, get maimed, be inappropriate, say crazy funny things, and break the fourth wall. All of this was happening, but the plot and story still moved along and set up the next issue quit nicely. However, the second half the book may disappoint some because it was not Deadpooly enough. Sure, Deadpool did pop up hereor there, but the focus was on the Mercs for Money and served to further their own character development. The price is $9.99, that is over two times the price of an average sized comic, and it did feature a lot of lower level characters getting more screen time over our main attraction. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Mark Hassenfratz Feb 11, 2016

    This issue was very hit-and-miss, but even though the misses were pretty rough, I really enjoyed the hits. It's definitely not as great as I'd like a 25th birthday issue to be, but all in all, it's not too shabby. Read Full Review

  • 6.5 - John McCubbin Feb 10, 2016

    Deadpool #7 was definitely an issue that relied heavily on its featured tale, with the back-up storied not quite feeling worth the extra $6. That said the creative team did an amazing job on the main story, setting up the next story arc perfectly. I wouldn't however recommend this to people who aren't already fans of the Merc with a Mouth. Read Full Review

    This book has SEVEN DIFFERENT STORIES, so the creative team list reads like an issue of Batman & Robin Eternal, and the title page takes longer to read through than you could take to get through an issue of Eternal before finding something to either roll your eyes at, or just give an exasperated sigh. But this book doesn’t have many moments to shrug off, and im thankful for that. The twenty-fifth anniversary of Deadpool is a pretty big deal, and it shows in this massive $10 tome. I love the stories, and I am excited to see where things go from here. I am also glad to see quite a few of the members of the Mercs for Money get a moment to shine in a solo story, because characters like Stingray, Terror, Slapstick and Solo all get some really good characterization in this book. Foolkiller didn’t really do it for me, because his story just seems like an unnecessary add-on to his story PLUS who signs up for college using their superhero name- ESPECIALLY when that name is “Foolkiller”??? Who would accept that college application? Oh- he had a 3.0 GPA in high school, and has lots of real world experience that would bring some prestige to this community college off the freeway- OH NO FOOLKILLER DENY DENY DENY we don’t have insurance for a guy like that! Colleges are packed with fools. Our enrollment numbers will go down. Okay, so maybe im making a mountain out of a Foolkiller, but I just don’t care for him in this story. Terror was a much more empathetic character in this story, and Stingray gets a bit of backstory that I appreciate, because otherwise he feels like a bit of a pompus jerk. Solo has some good redeeming qualities, and he gets the credit for starting the Mercs for Money, which is nice. Massacre is yet another character who I have a hard time with their story- mostly because I speak absolutely ZERO Spanish. So I don’t understand what he is saying, and my google translate app doesn’t really hit homeruns with the grammatical structure of Spanish. So

    I didn't bother with all the bonus crap after the main issue but this is a great issue to mark Deadpool's 25th anniversary. It does everything you want a Deadpool comic to do. He simply runs around trying to settle the score with some of his gudges. It does a pretty quick job of setting up the Deadpool vs Sabretooth arc and that was a little weak but otherwise this was a very fun issue.

    -- DEADPOOL // THE END OF AN ERROR : Light on story, high on funny, Deadpool taking out revenge on deserving people, especially the Harry Potter spoiler guy. Deadpool can't remember everything and I suspect something to do with Madcap is the key. -- TERROR // ARMED AND DANGEROUS: Cullen Bunn knocks this one out of the park, it is probably the best one. I didn't know anything about Terror before this, but this serves as an amazing backstory. The only problem though is that, if he can't remember his old girlfriend now, the dimension added here to his character is actually inconsequential. -- STINGRAY // BENEATH THE SURFACE: The consequences of this one are the most relevant of the follow-up stories in this issue. There is good dimension given to Stingray as he appears to be the team punching bag, but there are a few pages that are boring. -- SLAPSTICK // SLAPSTICK MEETS THE FORGOTTEN: This one is funny and the Thor decoys are priceless. The story is probably the most interesting of any of the stories in this collection because of the reveals involved. Great story, sorry that it doesn't look like it will ever continue from here. -- MASACRE // EL DIABLO EMPUJO: I didn't like this one at all, as far as I can tell, the priest decides to become Deadpool for no reason, but maybe there is a good reason that I'm not picking up on because I don't know any Spanish. I can only judge from my own reading experience, perhaps spanish readers will like this more. -- FOOLKILLER // FOOLKILLER GOES BACK TO SCHOOL: This one was stupid and not in a good way. You could plug any character into this back to school special and It would read the exact same. A totally unnecessary addition to this issue. -- SOLO // SOLO'S SOLO MISSION: Not particular entertaining to read but it at least explains why Deadpool started this franchise. -- OVERALL: This works as a jump-on point, I've only read the first issue of this series and I followed this pretty easily. It is still not Deadpool at his best and
