Even though the difference that meets the eye is only arrows and bows, the characters are very similar in the mental space. Both are shown of the rebellious kind and come out of rather an inescapable situation. What can be the most inescapable situation? Death, yes, both the characters have died and come back again.

  1. This writing is awful – even for comic book journalism. Deadpool started as a Deathstroke parody. And “who can beat up who” is no barometer of which publisher is “better.” Ridiculous. Stupid. Take a writing class. Otherwise you’re just another geek flapping his gums.
