So as you know, Black Panther: The Most Dangerous Man Alive's ending in February.

The current Kingpin vs. T'Challa arc wasn't intended to wrap it up- there's an interview from this year's San Diego Comic-Con where writer David Liss briefly discusses another one to consequentially follow- but the book's sales've been decreasing since its inception post-Shadowland (there was a Fear Itself bump, but only for the issue introducing the somewhat controversial American Panther), clocking in below 20,000 copies moved for the last few months.

I can understand why readers didn't buy into the Panther, especially post-Doomwar (and, of course, post-Hudlin), and I know there're titles more readily captivating. It's just that his book's getting cancelled, just as it was beginning to hit its stride, is quite an unfortunate bit of timing (but understandable; at least Fisk and T'Challa's battle is getting to conclude as intended).

Especially since its protagonist had also done so, by throwing off some of the more awkward elements of his post-Shadowland status quo. )

I once mentioned in the comments about Deadpool having been raped, and I had a couple of puzzled reactions in answer by people who didn't remember it. So I thought I could do a post about it:


(3 pages from Deadpool issue #12, 5 pages from Deadpool issue #13)


That was back in Joe Kelly's glorious run, and Deadpool was going through a rough time with trying to help Typhoid Mary which didn't really turn out how he wanted and then turned out a little bit ugly, fighting T-Ray who had a big grudge against him, and LL&L expecting him to be the heroic Mithra who will protect a prophesied Messiah, which he thought was pretty absurd; so he did something he was prone to do back then: going to Siryn, with whom he had a weird romantic friendship and a very big crush, for comfort. Instead of finding Siryn, he found Warpath, and a fight ensued, with the result that when Siryn actually arrived on the scene she was not really in the mood of hearing Wade talk about his issues and they had a pretty bad argument (including Wade being overbearing and aggressive) and Siryn walked away.


So Deadpool got drunk.

Dr. Doom sent Typhoid after Power Pack to steal alien Kymellian technology from them. She seems to think the best way to do that is by trying to kill the Power kids' father, because Typhoid is crazy. Doom does not like that idea.
