    Cullen Bunn just gets down to it and whether its a small frame showing a dead Marvelite or a big splash image of a Marvel hero getting butchered, Talajic's artwork fits it perfectly. The fun is felt, as well as the nastiness of a Deadpool on the loose throughout this issue and I just can't get enough of it. In fact, I almost don't want him to stop after four issues. Do Deadpool vs DC next I say. Drop him on the Justice League first. Read Full Review

    Damn this was good! Deadpool shooting Spidey in the middle of a crowd was crazy, but the way he took out the Avengers was just plain genius. Hell in one comic he killed Doom, The Avengers, Spidey, AND The Hulk! I'm not only wondering who can stop Deadpool... but who the hell is left? I'd have to gamble Wolverine? He was in the explosion but he has the healing factor so I figure he'll be back right? Also, can we please get a Venom killed the Marvel Universe? Please?! Oh, and TASKMASTER VS. DEADPOOL TO THE DEATH?! Hell....yes. Read Full Review

    This book is action packed, fast paced and an all round fun read. There's never a dull moment because everything is right out in the open. Some people love Deadpool, others hate on him, however, this is a book I think any comic fan will thoroughly enjoy. Read Full Review

    The premise itself can't be denied, however, as the wanton violence is still pretty entertaining. Many comics fans have wondered how some of these powerful super-beings could be taken down, and while some of it seemed pretty far fetched, Deadpool shows very clearly how to do it. While not something that could be sustained over a long period, this mini-series does what its intended for pretty well: to show the true destructive abilities of Deadpool, pitting him in a violent, gory showdown against the Marvel elite.

    The last issue was awesome because it brought so many taboos and adult themes you don't see everyday. They executed very well, but this issue began to expose a little bit of flaws that you couldn't really process until you go back and read it again. Read Full Review

    While this series isnt amazing by any stretch of the imagination, the overall package of writing, art (the cover for this series are amazing) and fun are pretty damned high.  If you, unlike me, can simply turn your brain off and take in this action-flick type story, then there is a whole lot to like here.  If youre the contemplative sort though, this might be something youll want to check out once it hits the dollar bins.

    IGN - Poet Mase Aug 8, 2012

    Maybe it's just that I don't particularly identify with existentialism, but this issue is a huge disappointment. It's entirely bereft of emotion " the one thing capable of driving this series to success. If you know that Spider-Man and the Avengers are in this issue, I'm pretty sure you can imagine a story of equivalent plotting and comparable quality for yourself without too much effort at all. The future for this series is ominous as it reaches its midpoint, with an underwhelming introduction capping off a general expungement of the series' emotion. Read Full Review

    We were introduced to the newly maddened Deadpool in the previous issue. This issue, I'd expected some justification for the killings or something of such sort, but I got nothing. We know whats going to happen in this comic from the title itself, but what we want is something more interesting. Thesoliloquies of Deadpool are less than interesting. They don't provide any information into the character. What I liked was the commentary on how Deadpool is being used as a character. This issue wasn't too good. The story was badly written. And some of the scenes, the emotions of the characters looked melodramatic and they looked posed. I'm all up for killing Spiderman and getting rid of him as I don't like him, but they could have made it little more interesting. Read Full Review

    The story itself doesn't add any depth, emotion, or reason for me to give a shite about what happens next. For that reason I'm out; the final two issues are going to pass me by. There was nothing creative about this book which is too bad because it could have been something special. Read Full Review
