Someday we will see a stand-alone Deadpool movie. Until then, we will have to content ourselves with his occasional cameos in other character’s movies as well as his appearances in comics. Fortunately, he’s in comics quite often.
Case in point is the upcoming limited series Deadpool vs. Carnage. Here’s the scoop directly from Marvel:
Carnage is on the warpath – moving across the country, butchering as he goes! The authorities are powerless. So how do you stop a psycho? Bring in another psycho! And you can bet this one is gonna be bloody! Don’t miss one minute of the blood-soaked chaos this April as the Merc with a Mouth tussles with the Symbiote Serial Killer in DEADPOOL VS. CARNAGE #1!
Look for Deadpool vs. Carnage #1, written by Cullen Bunn with art by Salva Espin, to hit stores on April 4. Check out some preview pages after the break.

Unfortunately, due to a scheduling snafu, I didn’t get my comics this week until late Wednesday night.

So to “celebrate” the series finale, they decided to make it a “mega-sized” final issue to help tie up all those loose ends that originally should have been spread out over an ungodly number of painfully written issues.
Much like the rest of the series, Exiles #6 just isn’t good. After finding out their first mission was not a success, the Exiles return to the world to break up the alliance that was keeping mutant kind united and would ultimately lead to the end of the world by driving the wedge of Scott Summers’ infidelity between Jean Grey and Emma Frost. When this happens, a series of events plays out that explains the “true” origins of the Exiles teams and how the Timebroker, the bugs and the old couple weren’t ever really behind their formation.
