I may be tying my own noose here, but is there any explanation for why it's called "Mrs Deadpool" when the timeline diverges from a point before Wade married Shikla? Is it just that she doesn't have an official codename?

Apart from that nitpick, it's been a pretty fun series. There's a bit with Man-Thing in #2 I found laugh-out-loud funny.

Probably because the issue in which Deadpool became married gained some small recognition (such as the breaking of a Guinness World Record), and the casual viewer would recognise her more as 'The Bride of Deadpool' than 'Shiklah'. Kind of like how the First Blood series eventually just became Rambo, or 'Frankenstein' over 'The Modern Prometheus', or Christopher Nolan's Batman movies being referred to as 'The Dark Knight Trilogy' following the release of the second film.

Makes sense. Still, if I were writing I'd have tried to make it work in-story as well.

Also, is anyone else seeing the partial resemblance of Marcus the Minotaur to Black Circle's The Fox?

Personally I was wondering: is this Deadpool trolling us, or did the artist not know the difference between a Minotaur and a Centaur?

Maybe he took the alternate idea of how 'half-man/half-cow' would work...also he has a really weird head that I can't tell is or isn't suppose to look like a hornless cow.

Eh, the literal translation is "Minos' Bull". I suppose that gives free reign to go nuts with how much man and how much bull is involved.

Though it'd be a nice twist if we found towards the end that the centaur part is all symbiotic-generated.

The character is not new and he's a centaur. I asked the editor about it and he confirmed minotaur was a mistake in the caption.

Now that you mention it, I see what you mean. I wonder if The Fox will do a centaur joke in response. (That is still going, right?)

The Fox has indeed gone ongoing, with Archie's new Dark Circle superhero imprint. It remains positively delightful.
