Has everyone’s favorite merc with a mouth finally found his resting place. Today Marvel announced that beginning with Deadpool #50 Wade Wilson may finally have met his end. The X-Force member and all around badass has been experiencing a boost in popularity for a few years now, so it makes perfect sense that Marvel will want to kill him off (For you Sheldon’s out there yes that was sarcasm). In addition I am going to go ahead and open the bidding pool on anyone who would like to take bets on how long he will stay dead. I am going to go out on a limb and put my money on less than two issues. Takers? Either way check out the press release and preview art:
