In one corner, Deadpool: A mercenary who flip-flops between villain, anti-hero and hero with an incredible healing factor and a big mouth that never closes. In the other corner, Carnage: Serial killer Kletus Cassidy bonded with a symbiote and the two have even more power than venom.
Neither of these characters have really shared panel space before despite having many similar characteristics. Both of them love violence, are seen as insane by the people around them (often rightfully so), debuted in the 90s, love to wear red and have many devoted fans. Now, the two are coming together in the Deadpool vs. Carnage mini-series.
The four issue mini-series will begin in April 2014. The Marvel series will be written by Cullen Bunn (The Sixth Gun, Venom) and drawn by Salva Espin (World War Hulk Aftersmash: Damage Control), who previously worked together on Deadpool Kills Deadpool. The story will take place inside the primary Marvel universe (for those of you scratching your heads Bunn’s other Deadpool mini-series Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe, Deadpool Killustrated and Deadpool Kills Deadpool don’t take place in the standard Marvel universe.
Also, according to Bunn, it’s not necessary to read other Deadpool stories but in this mini-series “is a progression of everything Carnage has been through.” So, I guess I need to brush up on my Carnage…
