rocket-deadpool-social

Factory Entertainment has brought a fan-favorite moment from the 2013 video game to near life with its Deadpool — Rocket Ride Premium Motion Statue.

As you might expect with the Merc With a Mouth, the company’s listing is absolutely filled with innuendo, like “Standing fully erect at a colossal 10 inches high” and “Deadpool’s red rocket gracefully sways back and forth simulating a sky rocket in flight, sure to delight fans eager for further stimulation that regular statues cannot provide.” You get the picture.

The Deadpool Poutine Chimichanga is massive (and apparently delicious)

chimichanga2

Deadpool’s legendary love for deep-fried burritos has inspired one Philadelphia restaurant to create a dish fit for a Merc With a Mouth (and a super-sized appetite).

Behold, the “Deadpool Poutine Chimichanga,” which was added to the menu of Cantina Dos Segundos earlier this month. You may want to grab a bib (and a pacemaker) as we describe it: braised short rib, french fries, fried cheese curd, black beans, bacon, and pickled red onion and jalapeno, served with a side of short rib au jus, and topped with sour cream onion, scallion and cilantro.

flash appreciation day

From “Justice League Unlimited”

Fandom | Feb. 11 is Flash Appreciation Day, a holiday drawn from the 2006 Justice League Unlimited animated series “Flash and Substance.” Last year, fans petitioned the White House (unsuccessfully), asking President Obama to pay tribute to the Scarlet Speedster. This year, however, they’re marking the occasion with special content spread across nine blogs, and a call for donations to The Hero Initiative. Jim McLauchlin, the organization’s president, participated in an interview and also rounded up creators Mark Waid, George Pérez, Walt Simonson, Dennis O’Niel and Jim Valentino to discuss their favorite versions of The Flash.

Reynolds chastises fan-made LEGO sets for ‘spoiling’ ‘Deadpool’ scenes

dp2

In addition to being fun for comic fans of all ages, LEGO playsets have earned a reputation for spoiling minor plot points about the films they tie-in with over the past year. The “Avengers: Age of Ultron” sets, “Ant-Man” sets and “Captain America: Civil War” sets all leaked information, ranging from the mundane to the giant (literally, in “Civil War’s” case). Knowing that, Ryan Reynolds recently took major issue with a few of “Deadpool’s” LEGO sets — kinda.

Deadpool meets Deathstroke in George Perez mashup

deathstroke-deadpool-social

Legendary artist George Perez brings together Marvel’s Merc With a Mouth and DC’s own mercenary/assassin for a commission sketch that literally merges Deadpool with Deathstroke. Seriously, they split the body right down the middle.

“With the Deadpool movie coming out and with its connection to the Deathstroke character, this seemed like a nice piece to put up,” wrote Perez, who created Deathstroke with Marv Wolfman. “Truthfully, I wasn’t particularly aware of the connection between these two characters until the person who commissioned this piece pointed it out to me. I hope you all enjoy this unusual merging.”

Deadpool hits the ATM in “Thunderbolts” #131

Although the marketing for the upcoming Deadpool effort has gotten imaginative, this burglary in Florida probably isn’t part of Fox’s campaign.

The Brevard County Sheriff’s Office is on the hunt for two men dressed as the Marvel antihero who broke into a gas station in Cocoa, Florida, early Jan. 7 and removed an ATM. However, as the images below show, these were Mercs with Mouths, not with a brains.
