Ladies and gentlemen, let’s get ready to rumbllllllllle! Because MTV has announced that Joe Kelly will orchestrating a clash of the titans:
That’s right — Spider-Man versus Deadpool.
With some obvious similarities — agility, red masks, snarky senses of humor — the battle between the Webbed Wonder and the Merc with a Mouth proves that action is the readers’ reward. They’ll be butting heads… and blades… and webs… in November’s Amazing Spider-Man #611, with art by Eric Canete and a cover by Skottie Young, which you can see on his DeviantArt feed here.
“Their jokes styles are so different,” Kelly told MTV. “Deadpool is so absurd and mean at the drop of a hat, but Spidey is so light. … [Spider-Man] tries to take the high road, but when you spend enough time around Deadpool, you can’t help coming down to his level.”
Now, this isn’t the first time these two have squared off — Spider-Man did have a appearance in Cable/Deadpool #24, where the Regenerating Degenerate threw Peter Parker off a bridge. But with Joe Kelly — one of the top-tier Deadpool writers in the late ’90s as well as a current member of the Spider-Man Brain Trust — I can’t wait to see the sort of no-brow cracks this war of the wiseasses is going to unleash!
