Deadpool Redesign by RtRadke Deadpool Redesign by RtRadke
I think he's a character with a lot of potential, but don't like how slapstick Deadpool has become. I think he's been mishandled lately.

If I ever end up working for Marvel, I'd like to pitch a more serious Deadpool series - still with dark humor and very occasional breaking of the fourth wall (think "Funny Games" if you've seen that movie) - where he is de-powered by AIM or something and forced to work for them. Thus, the body armor.

The bad guys fix his face and 'Pool stops hearing voices after his healing factor is dampened... but he starts hearing things again after a few knocks to the head. He'd team up with Machine Man and fight guys like MODOK.

I think that Wade still has that dark theme around him. It's been hinted quite a bit that Deadpool's goofy nature is a façade to hide the fact that he is deeply depressed, lonely and generally just wanting a hug. Besides, if A.I.M were to de-power him, wouldn't that kill him? The only thing keeping him alive is that same healing factor, and if that were to go away, his Stage 4 Cancer would kill him in no time.

now his mask isn't so "deathstroke-ish"

But now is costume is reminiscent of Arkhamverse Slade... Which isn't a bad thing.

Yeah but that's just one form of media that Slade's in. I don't think that outfit will carry over to the comics.

While I would like some more serious storylines for deadpool, I actually like his attitude and personality now. I see it as his character development. He's mostly gotten over being horribly scarred, has a few friends, and is part of an x-team now. I think he has more stability in his life now ( albeit, still not much) hence his lightheartedness.

Cool costume, cool idea, but one slight problem: his healing factor is what keeps him from dying of terminal cancer.
