Follow the History of Ant-Man Pt. 1 (Fri, 18 Apr 2014)
Follow the History of Ant-Man Pt. 1 In 1962, the legacy of Ant-Man began; today, over five decades later, the legend has come to encompass multiple heroes and will take shape as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2015. To celebrate the 75th anniversary of Marvel as well as prepare for Marvel’s “Ant-Man,” coming to theaters on July 17, 2015, learn all about the history of this unique hero. Scientist, inventor, Avenger: as Ant-Man, Hank Pym founded an identity that served him well at the beginning of the new Heroic Age, one he subsequently bequeathed to others. Never quite standing as tall as his teammates like Iron Man, Thor, or the Hulk, Ant-Man nonetheless made an indelible imprint on the populace he swore to protect with his incredible discoveries and passion for science. Having discovered a growth potion in TALES TO ASTONISH #27, scientist Henry “Hank” Pym made the fateful decision to experiment with it on himself, shrinking him to insect-size and literally heading down an ant hole. That adventure made Pym pause and ponder the implications of everything he’d experienced among the miniscule beings whose home he’d inadvertently invaded. In TALES TO ASTONISH #35, Pym reconsidered his discovery and developed a special protective costume and helmet with which he could communicate with ants. Shrinking down to their size once again, he foiled the scheme of Russian agents to steal an anti-radiation formula as Ant-Man, a new champion for justice. Later, in TALES TO ASTONISH #36, he worked his potion into gas form and continued to help the police department against such menaces as Comrade X and the racketeer called the Protector. Ant-Man faced off against the first real challenge to his intellect in TALES TO ASTONISH #38 when he met Egghead, a criminal genius who sought out the super hero to defeat him for a mob of gangsters. A string of strange cases followed, as Pym combated the likes of the Scarlet Beetle in TALES TO ASTONISH #39, the other-dimensional Kulla in TALES TO ASTONISH #41, and the Master of Time in TALES TO ASTONISH #43. Under siege by the gigantic alien Kosmos in TALES TO ASTONISH #44, Ant-Man took on a partner. The beautiful Janet Van Dyne, who’d just lost her father to Kosmos’ brusque entry into our world, became the Wasp and stood alongside Ant-Man to defeat the alien criminal. Hank and Janet also began to fall in love with each other, bonding as a super heroic duo like none other. Egghead returned in TALES TO ASTONISH #45 to fight Ant-Man and the Wasp, and the diminutive hero aided the Fantastic Four against Doctor Doom and his subjugation of a microscopic world in FANTASTIC FOUR #16. After a few more challenges, Pym and Van Dyne joined with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to found the Avengers, the first great super team of the new era, as seen in AVENGERS #1. After defeating the Porcupine in TALES TO ASTONISH #48, Ant-Man continued to develop his technology and made the first of many identity changes in TALES TO ASTONISH #49. Now able to grow to a fantastic height as well as shrink, Pym renamed himself Giant Man, though he still operated as Ant-Man for a short while when he operated at reduced size in special circumstances. Eventually, though, he abandoned the Ant-Man persona in favor of the great potential of Giant Man and introduced the identity to his fellow heroes in AVENGERS #2. For the most part, Pym continued to operate beyond the Ant-Man name, save for rare occasions such as AVENGERS #93, when he re-adopted the role to examine the Vision from the inside during the Kree-Skrull War, and then years later when he succumbed to mind control under the artificial brain of Ultron, one of his own robotic creations, in AVENGERS #161 and #162. Then, with no memory of adventures as Giant Man, he once again wore the mask of Ant-Man until the Avengers set him right and together they defeated Ultron. Finally, believing he’d set aside his first super heroic persona forever, Pym met a young man who’d pick up the legacy of Ant-Man and make it his own… Read more TALES TO ASTONISH on Marvel Unlimited

Wish Warpath a Happy 30th Birthday and Follow His Rocky Road to the X-Men (Fri, 18 Apr 2014)
Wish Warpath A Happy 30th Birthday! There aren't many legacy heroes filling out the ranks of the uncanny X-Men, which makes the mutant known as Warpath truly unique amongst the unique. With his superhuman strength, speed, durability, and fighting skills, James Proudstar has served on a number of X-Men affiliated teams: X-Force, the X-Corps, Wolverine's black ops X-Force squad, and the X-Men proper. But as the younger brother of the fallen X-Man codenamed Thunderbird, he hasn't always been a stalwart supporter of Professor Xavier's dream. James Proudstar first appeared thirty years ago in NEW MUTANTS #16, by Chris Claremont and Sal Buscema. The issue marked the debut of the Hellions, the Hellfire Club's teen team of misguided mutants, with Proudstar following the White Queen's wishes. Using his deceased brother's codename, Thunderbird II joined the Hellions as part of an elaborate plan for vengeance. But first, T-Bird had to tangle with Xavier's protégés, the New Mutants, who had snuck onto the Massachusetts Academy campus to rescue Kitty Pryde from the White Queen. Proudstar took out Sunspot, the team's heavy-hitter, with one hit, demonstrating that John Proudstar's little brother packed a big punch. But James' inexperience got the better of him when he let Rahne Sinclair's half wolf form catch him off guard. Go easy on the kid – he'd just come to Massachusetts and they didn’t have half-wolf girls with thick Irish accents on the Apache reservation he grew up on. The crack's in Proudstar's tough demeanor began to show when Sunspot went up against the Hellion called Roulette. She took great pleasure in throwing the New Mutant into a state of agony, but her ruthlessness didn't sit right with James. James Proudstar's connection to the X-Man Thunderbird became clear in the next issue, when the White Queen confronted her charges about their skirmish with the now captive New Mutants. Proudstar's protests fell on deaf ears, and before he knew it he found himself in another altercation with Xavier's students. The Mutants hastened their escape plan as soon as big time baddie Sebastian Shaw arrived on the scene. The New Mutants and Kitty Pryde's extreme desire to escape from the Hellions planted a seed of doubt in James Proudstar's mind. He wouldn't remain with the villainess for much longer; in fact, after a failed attempt on Xavier's life in UNCANNY X-MEN #193, Proudstar would forever flee from the influence of the Hellfire Club. He changed his name to Warpath and joined up with the remnants of the New Mutants in NEW MUTANTS #99, just in time for that team to turn into Cable's X-Force. Since then, Warpath's been a force for good in the Marvel Universe as he continues to honor his brother's memory. Check out some of Warpath's more heroic adventures in X-FORCE and X-MEN!

Psych Ward: Doop (Thu, 17 Apr 2014)
Psych Ward: Doop The client, named only as Doop, is…difficult to describe. He (as the client is commonly identified as male although this writer has no knowledge of the client’s gender or biological sex or how one might identify such a thing) is rumored to be a sort of living weapon developed during the Cold War, but the client has refused to confirm or deny this origin. It is unclear if he is one of a kind, if there might be other such experiments, or if he is part of some kind of heretofore unidentified alien race. Again, the client declines to discuss any information regarding this. Doop presents as a floating yellow-green globule, typically emblazoned with the distinctive “X” marking his affiliation with the mutant rights group the X-Men and its offshoots. It is, however, unclear whether or not he self-identifies as a mutant. He also declines to elucidate this question. The client speaks in an unknown language that few seem to understand. It is not recognizable to this writer as having similarities to any widespread world languages. It is certainly not Germanic, Romantic or Cyrillic in origin. However, the client also possesses the ability to “turn off” one of his brains and when he does so, he can converse in English via his second smaller brain; think the hind brain in dinosaurs. He apparently discovered this when his own primary brain exploded a few years back. This writer sees no long term neurological or cognitive damage from this explosion. Beyond assessing that, however, the writer has no idea what to do with this disclosure. The client arrived because of what can be best summarized as a romantic entanglement with a former co-worker at the Jean Grey Academy. Although, given the information shared, this writer can guess at the target of this attraction, the client declined to disclose this information and thus the writer will not hazard a guess. In any case, the client and the writer discussed his concerns regarding disclosing this interest to the woman versus the consequences of never speaking his feelings. We explored how he felt about their obvious physical differences, his belief that she might be involved with someone else, and the sensation of wanting more than simple transactional physical intimacy, a feeling apparently very unusual for the client. This discussion also led to an exploration of his feelings of being invisible or unnoticed. Doop expressed ambivalence about this, admitting it is what he’s always done and he appreciates being able to help, while also desiring things like credit, support, and, now, love. Doop has tentatively agreed to continue to explore these feelings with Doctors Peter Milligan and David Lafuente. His next appointment is set for May 7 and their session notes will be available in file ALL-NEW DOOP #2. Psy D. Candidate Tim Stevens, MA is a Dialectical Behavior Therapy Consultant and Psychology intern at a small(ish) university in New York City. His counseling appointments for green floating entities of unknown origins are currently all filled but he’s happy to offer referrals.

Keep The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Adventure Going With This Providence Reading List (Thu, 17 Apr 2014)
Keep The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Adventure Going With This Providence Reading List The latest "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." saw our agents of nothing searching through a winter wonderland for a hideout from the government – as well as anything that could give them a new sense of purpose. Along with ex-agent Phil Coulson's snow-covered existential crisis, the show gave us a few more characters pulled straight from the Marvel Comics. Just because the credits have rolled doesn't mean that the Marvel adventure's over. Here are a few comic books selected to pick up where "Providence" left off. A call from Major Glenn Talbot forced Coulson's crew to go on the run, similar to how the Hulk reacted way back in Talbot's first appearance in 1964. As one of General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross' close allies, Talbot made tracking down the Hulk his personal mission. He even married Bruce Banner's ex-girlfriend Betty Ross, thus twisting the metaphorical knife he'd already placed in the Hulk's hide. But Talbot's quest against the Hulk would prove to be his undoing; he died in battle with the green behemoth in INCREDIBLE HULK #260. Hydra commander John Garrett mentioned in passing that he'd once gone up against a guy named Johnny Horton – a guy that had traded in his hands for lion's paws. If you thought that kooky aside sounded like something pulled from an old Marvel Comic, you're right! Horton's alter-ego, the Griffin, has been pestering heroes since his debut way back in 1972's AMAZING ADVENTURES #15. He eventually tangled with the Los Angeles-based Champions, testing his animal might against heroes like Ghost Rider and Black Widow. While the "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." version of Eric Koenig may be stuck inside the isolated safehouse dubbed Providence, the comic book version made his debut as a globe-trotting adventurer in both the Howling Commandoes and as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. He even teamed up with Captain America and Sharon Carter to fight Hydra in a mission where his ace piloting skills came in handy. Don't miss "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." next Tuesday at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC!

Crack Your Knuckles with Shang-Chi's Deadliest Fights (Thu, 17 Apr 2014)
Shang-Chi's Deadliest Fights The Avengers' resident martial arts master strikes out on his own this May in DEADLY HANDS OF KUNG FU #1. The series marks Shang-Chi's first extended solo adventure since joining up with Captain America and company full time in 2012's AVENGERS #1. The tale comes courtesy of writer of Mike Benson and artist Tan Eng Huat, who promise that this action-packed ride will be one of the most personal Shang-Chi has ever faced. We've compiled a list of five of Shang Chi's best brawls to serve as a reminder of just how tough the Master of Kung Fu can be. With chaos reigning over A.I.M. island, Captain America teams up with Shang-Chi and Falcon to restore order by taking on pretty much every costumed criminal in the Marvel Universe. Everyone from Crossbones to Batroc the Leaper get brought to justice in this three-part epic, and Shang-Chi leaves no A.I.M. agent unpunched. Thanks to a classic super hero misunderstanding, he even ruffles a few of Falcon's feathers. Shang-Chi's dad has never been the kind of parent that deserves a sentimental Father's Day card. Zheng Zu's less of a backyard barbecue kinda guy, and more of a criminal mastermind, send assassins to murder his son kinda guy. The martial artist known as Zaran usually got stuck with assassin duties, and he came foot-to-face with Shang-Chi on a number of occasions. Despite his menacing ponytail and wide array of weapons, Zaran has never been a match for Shang-Chi. Alongside Captain America and S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Sharon Carter, Shang-Chi broke into a Shadow Council facility mining gravity-defying transmatter for nefarious purposes. With the laws of gravity thrown into chaos, Shang-Chi proved himself to be the master of a new M.C. Escher style of kung fu.  When all of Manhattan's inhabitants received spider powers, Shang-Chi found himself gifted with the ability to crawl up walls and haunted by spiderific dreams. He used these new gifts to go after wall-crawling bad guys, but he didn't count on going up against the appropriately named Bride of Nine Spiders – a member of the Immortal Weapons, erstwhile ally of Iron Fist, and martial arts master in her own right.   When some Avengers go to a swanky Hong Kong casino, they dress to impress and start placing bets. When Shang-Chi goes to a swanky Hong Kong casino, he single-handedly destroys about a dozen highly trained ninjas – while still dressed to impress. Sure, the guy's fine with being part of a team, he just knows that some disputes are easier settled when they're done one-on-twelve. Check out this martial arts master's all-new adventures in DEADLY HANDS OF KUNG-FU #1, on sale this May!

Find Out Who Made Marvel.com's Top Ten 1960's Debuts List Pt. 5 (Tue, 15 Apr 2014)
Find Out Who Made Marvel.com's Top Ten All year long on Marvel.com, we’re celebrating Marvel’s 75th anniversary, and to fully appreciate the scope of that history, you need to go back to where it all began. As the Golden Age of the 1940’s and 50’s gave way to the 1960’s, so did what had been Timely and Atlas Comics evolve into something more. Under the guidance of creators like Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko and others, the Marvel Universe emerged, bringing with it an explosion of heroes, villains and other concepts the likes of which had never been seen in the medium! This week, we count down our top 10 Marvel heroes to debut during the 1960’s. Have your own thoughts? Let us know on Twitter using the hash tag #Marvel75! Read part one Read part two Read part three Read part four 10. THE BLACK PANTHER 9. IRON MAN 8. THOR 7. DOCTOR STRANGE 6. THE SILVER SURFER 5. THE HULK 4. THE AVENGERS 3. THE X-MEN 2. THE FANTASTIC FOUR First Appearance: FANTASTIC FOUR (1961) #1 Why They’re #2: “Initially misunderstood and even feared, the Fantastic Four nevertheless took up the challenge of their first adventure and bearded the malevolent Mole Man in his den underneath Monster Island. Big brain Reed Richards, test pilot Ben Grimm, and siblings Sue and Johnny Storm gained incredible powers from a barrage of cosmic rays while on an experimental orbital flight, and gained invaluable experience pitting them against the Mole Man’s hulking creatures, winning the day and saving an unknowing populace from the diminutive fiend’s revenge against humanity. The first super hero team to show true emotion and act like a family rather than a finely-tuned and flawless fighting unit, the FF would change—and set—the standard for all groups to come, kicking off the Marvel era of comics.” – Jim Beard Digital Comics Spotlight: FANTASTIC FOUR (1961) #3 1. SPIDER-MAN First Appearance: AMAZING FANTASY #15 Why He’s #1: “In August of 1962, a dime and a nickel bought readers AMAZING FANTASY #15 and three pennies back. The anthology saw acts of noble sacrifice, paranormal treachery, and Martian invasion. It also heralded the arrival of timid Peter Parker, the most relatable outsider in Midtown High. As the small change jangled in their pockets, young readers met an awkward teen burdened by mutual anxieties, a wallflower just trying to survive through 8th period. Burdened by incredible abilities through the bite of a radioactive spider, Peter became the quintessential funhouse mirror for teenage power fantasy, a pubescent allegory rendered at a feverish dot pitch. “Equal parts teen idol, icon and iconoclast, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko’s friendly neighborhood Spider-Man went on to redefine the prerequisites for admission to the super hero table. Riding the crest of the late 50’s pop art revolution and anticipating the counter culture sensibilities of the mid-60’s, Spidey became the first rock and roll super hero, earning the adulation of the youth and the ire of the geezer. Teachers, parents and grizzled newspapermen just didn’t understand— which only made us love him all the more. Of course, Peter avoided descending into true anti-heroism. When his early vanity and arrogance cost him the life of his mentor and father figure Uncle Ben, Peter adopted his self-sacrificing philosophy. “AMAZING FANTASY #15 changed everything, offering escapism but demanding some soul searching in return. Spider-Man’s origin had the audacity to forego a triumphant conclusion, ending instead with our hero walking off toward his destiny, nearly crumpled by the guilt of his inaction. With the arrival of Spider-Man, Marvel Comics challenged readers to look for heroes not up in the sky, but within themselves.” – Paul Montgomery Digital Comics Spotlight: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (1963) #1 Share your thoughts on Twitter with the hash tag #Marvel75 and keep up on Marvel’s 75th anniversary celebration at marvel.com/75

Tuesday Q&A: Michael Allred (Tue, 15 Apr 2014)
Tuesday Q&A: Michael Allred If you’re seeking out legendary artist Michael Allred with your burning questions, you’ll have to get in line. Allred’s at the height of his powers and super-busy with cool projects like the wildest SILVER SURFER series ever with writer Dan Slott and covers for ALL-NEW DOOP, yet we forged ahead with an interview, knowing you’d settle for nothing less. Here it is, a few choice words with an all-around great guy and one of the most unique illustrators of our time: Michael Allred. Marvel.com: Michael, SILVER SURER seems like such a natural fit for you; what was your first reaction when you were approached about the book? Was it a no-brainer? Michael Allred: The cosmic no-brainer of all no-brainers. When Senior Editor Tom Brevoort first asked me if I'd be interested in doing SILVER SURFER, I actually had to do a quick reality check. Was I dreaming? Marvel.com: At the outset, what did you most want to do with the art for the series? You appear to be a traditionalist with Norrin's look—or is there more to it than that for you? Michael Allred: I always strive for some kind of progress in my work. But at the same time, in my mind, the Surfer should look a certain way. So, I want it to look contemporary but have a clear path to the original [Jack] Kirby/[Stan] Lee vibe. Marvel.com: What does Dan Slott do as a writer that makes it most enjoyable for you as an artist to work on his plots and scripts? Michael Allred: We're both fueled by pure affection and enthusiasm for the character. It's like kids playing in the yard with their imaginations exploding. And we have the experience to take that childlike excitement and bring it to the page. So far it's been pure joy working with Dan and builds as he keeps giving me pages that are a blast to draw. Marvel.com: Speaking of blasts, how long did that huge two-page spread in SILVER SURFER #1 take you to draw? Michael Allred: I just worked out the shape and started drawing in all the details. It took about three days all in. Mentally I just went back to junior high sitting in the back of a boring class entreating myself by filling up my notebooks with doodles. Now ask Dan how long it took him to write the three sentence description. [Laughs] Marvel.com: Your female characters are always stunning and so uniquely "you"—what was your intention with Dawn visually? What was most important for you to convey about her? Michael Allred: We went back and forth finding a nice "girl next door" vibe. I wanted a no-frills short haircut, something simultaneously spunky and sexy. And we wanted a very specific look for her outfit, something distinct like Charlie Brown's zig-zag shirt. I finally came up with the Ladybug polka dots that everybody dug, and then it was a very easy call to do the bumble bee stripes for her twin sister. Marvel.com: In terms of the aliens and alien vistas, what about designing them appeals to you the most? Is there anything in the vein coming up in the next few issues that you're most proud of? Michael Allred: What's most fun about aliens and their worlds is that there are no rules. Let your freak flag fly! He's not a super crazy alien design, but I'm very excited about Warrior One. I hope he becomes a classic iconic Marvel character. Marvel.com: What existing Marvel characters would you like to see guest-star in the book, and why? Michael Allred: All of them! I love them all! But I also love introducing new characters and going to new corners of the Marvel Universe. I'm not going to name names because I want to keep everyone guessing. Marvel.com: We love your answer, man! So, switching over to ALL-NEW DOOP, what's it like returning to the character for the covers? Michael Allred: Like visiting a dear old friend. Some old friends can be almost unrecognizable, changing in so many ways. Other friends, 10 years could have gone by, but it feels like you were just with them yesterday. Doop is an anchor of bizarre consistency. Marvel.com: What's your mission statement on the Doop covers? What do they need to be? Michael Allred: The mutant race in yer face! Look for SILVER SURFER #2 to glide your way on April 23!

Meet the All-New Ultimate FF (Tue, 15 Apr 2014)
Meet The All-New Ultimate FF! The Ultimate revolution continues this Wednesday with the release of ULTIMATE FF #1 by Joshua Hale Fialkov, Mario Guevara, and Tom Grummett! Now that the world-devouring threat of Galactus has been dealt with, the Ultimate Universe's biggest brains have banded together to form a totally new institution: the Ultimate Future Foundation! By mixing Tony Stark's money with Sue Storm's ambition, this FF promises to be unlike any we've ever seen before. ULTIMATE FF brings three new heroes into the fantastic fold alongside the stalwart Invisible Woman. To get you caught up on all things FF, here's the Ultimate rundown on Invisible Woman, Iron Man, Falcon, and Machine Man! Sue Storm has become an iconic hero in her own right, independent of her former teammates in the Fantastic Four. She's put her genius-level intellect to good use with the Ultimates and S.H.I.E.L.D. Sue's also had her heroism put to the test, as she watched her ex-boyfriend Reed Richards succumb to madness following the dissolution of her Fantastic family. Through it all, though, Sue's been a determined hero – and that determination now has a home in the Future Foundation. With a brain tumor threatening to put an early end to his life, CEO and genius inventor Tony Stark decided to devote his life to saving the world as Iron Man. Alongside the Ultimates, Stark fought off alien invasions and powerful super villains up until former hero Mr. Fantastic killed him in order to gain the final Infinity Gem. Being a genius, Tony Stark outsmarted death with an electronic back up of his consciousness, which he then inserted back into his body after resurrecting it with the Infinity Gems. The adventuring scientist known as the Falcon made his debut just in time to defend Earth against the coming of Gah Lak Tus. The Ultimate Universe's Sam Wilson also designed his wing-pack, which he's put to use as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. and – more recently – as a member of Nick Fury's handpicked Howling Commandos. Falcon suffered a great loss during the recent Cataclysm event when the Vision, a harbinger of Gah Lak Tus that Sam had grown quite close to, died in battle. To make matters worse, Sam now has to work alongside the remnants of Gah Lak Tus, which have bonded with Danny Ketch to form Machine Man. The Howling Commando known as Danny Ketch has become the Future Foundation member called Machine Man. During Galactus' recent attempt to devour the Earth, the Commandoes found themselves tasked with taking out the Gah Lak Tus swarm and freeing all of its captives. In order to save lives and check one threat off of Cataclysm's checklist, one of the Commandos had to merge with the swarm. Danny Ketch volunteered and survived the following explosion, although he's now trapped in a new robot body. Ketch has become the Future Foundation's Machine Man. To see this fantastic team in action, check out ULTIMATE FF #1 this Wednesday! Ultimate Comics Ultimates (2011) #27 Cover ULTIMATES #1

Follow the History of Deadpool Pt. 3 (Wed, 29 May 2013)
The History of Deadpool Pt. 3 By Brett White After making a bloody splash as an X-Force villain just over 20 years ago, Deadpool has grown from a cult favorite second banana to Marvel's most notorious leading mercenary. On June 25, 2013, comic book fans everywhere will get to experience life in the red and black tights when Deadpool's first ever video game breaks its way into stores. This marks Wade Wilson's first time headlining a game after appearing in other titles like “Marvel: Ultimate Alliance” and the Marvel vs. Capcom series. To celebrate this momentous occasion, we're giving you an in-depth look at Deadpool's history, from his humble beginnings as X-Force's snarkiest foe all the way to today. Be sure to visit the Marvel Digital Comics Shop and Marvel Digital comics Unlimited to brush up on your 'Pool history! What's a merc to do when the object of his affection needs breaking out of a mental institution? In X-FORCE #47, Deadpool answered Siryn's call for help after a failed mission landed her in the Weisman Institute for the Criminally Insane. But just as Wade busted X-Force's field leader out, he got left behind with all memory of his involvement removed from Siryn's mind by the manipulative Gamesmaster. When her memories returned in X-FORCE #56, Theresa went back to rescue Deadpool. With both halves of this odd couple finally free, 'Pool paid his rescuer back with a kiss which…didn't really please her. Better luck next time? 1997's DEADPOOL #1—kicking off DP’s first ongoing series—shoved a lot of Wilson's skeletons out of their cozy closet. The issue gave readers an unobstructed look at Deadpool's home life in a quaint San Francisco home with his elderly live-in prisoner, the cantankerous and feisty Blind Al. Wade took a mission to destroy a science outpost in Antarctica. Not a problem—until Deadpool discovered that Dr. Walter Langkowski—better known as Alpha Flight's Sasquatch—ran the outpost. The ensuing fight—because of course there was a fight—damaged the outpost's gamma core and threatened to irradiate half of Earth. Wade did the unthinkable to prevent a global catastrophe: he dove into the gamma core to fix it, saving the day and exhausting his healing factor. The intergalactic holding company Landau, Luckman and Lake claimed responsibility for DP's Antarctic mission, claiming they set him up to find out if he could be the hero their in-house prophets had said he would be. Wilson laughed off their offer to become a working good guy. With his healing factor broken, Deadpool tracked down Dr. Killebrew with Siryn's help. The former Weapon X geneticist wished to atone for the unspeakable horrors he did to Wade, so the doctor cured the merc's gamma irradiated healing factor with a healthy dose of Hulk-blood procured via impalement in DEADPOOL #4. This freed Wilson up to murder Killebrew, but Siryn convinced him otherwise, thus setting Deadpool on the heroic path that LL&L saw in his future. The path to true heroism included a few nasty pit stops. Getting involved in a bloody relationship with the deranged Typhoid Mary didn't help in DAREDEVIL/DEADPOOL ANNUAL. Temporarily posing as Spider-Man in the hero's early days and scaring Aunt May nearly to death didn't show great care for the time stream in DEADPOOL #11. Throwing Weasel and Blind Al in a dark room filled with knives, buzzsaws and razor blades just because the two communicated behind his back did demonstrate much heroism, and rushing headfirst into a battle with the psychopath T-Ray nearly got ‘Pool killed in DEADPOOL #14. All of those setbacks proved necessary to push Deadpool towards accepting LL&L's offer when agent Zoe Culloden pulled his broken body out of the snow. In DEADPOOL #17, the Merc with a Mouth learned his destiny as the Mithras with a mouth, a being charged with shepherding in the messiah. After coming to terms with his fate, Wilson prepared himself for his job, which turned out to just involve gutting an alien messiah-killer named Tiamat. The prediction became less than clear, though, as the messiah Deadpool pledged to protect turned out to be a celestial entity that robbed civilizations of their free will. After learning the truth in DEADPOOL #25, Wade turned against his mission and killed both his adversaries and the being he had been meant to safeguard. The world lost a "messiah" and gained continued free will. With his destiny destroyed and his entire support group gone, Wade fled San Francisco permanently. As far as he ran, though, his past came back in the physical form of ex-wife, Mercedes. Although he didn't initially remember being married, Deadpool’s memories of their life together and tragic end came back slowly. Mercedes had been murdered by T-Ray after the naive Wilsons took him in, an act that threatened to be repeated after T-Ray showed up again on DP's doorstep. DEADPOOL #33 dropped a bomb on the merc's backstory, as T-Ray revealed Mercedes to actually be his wife, Wade Wilson his true name, and the man who ruined their lives—Deadpool. T-Ray's magic left Wilson on the brink of death, and the reunited Wilson couple left Wade to rot and recuperate in hell. But does this revelation shake Deadpool's core sense of self? Not one bit! After all, no one should trust a psychopath with a band-aid for a nose like T-Ray! Check out DEADPOOL (1997) in the Marvel Digital Comics Shop, plus on Marvel Unlimited.
