This reminds me of a scene in one of the Sin City stories, "To Hell and Back" iirc, where the hero of the story (and for once the guy is actually pretty heroic) is doped to the gills by the (very corrupt) police and shown what they planted in the back of his car, a cartoon version of an angelic little kid and all that. Much like this scene, they don't show what actually happened... Thankfully.

I don't buy for a second single Deadpool killed everyone. It's just as believable as Punisher killing everyone. Only bad writing can make it happen.

Still, this isn't as pure garbage as the original mini-series was.

Maybe they can come with some meta explanation: 4th wall breaking, reality manipulation, narrative control...

It's not just Deadpool though, it's deadpool getting info, power-ups and support from Old Man Logan unified villians.

Yeah, although the story's moving too quickly to really emphasize that. The first story ran mostly on using the fourth wall break as a sort of deliberate plot device. This one is basically the JLA "Tower of Babel" arc employed against the MU by its villains, with Deadpool as an unwitting stooge.

It does stretch credibility the longer it goes on in a whole host of ways, however, not least of which is that Power Pack should have wiped the goddamn floor with Deadpool. I'm not sure how he could kill Jack, and an angry Katie could just disintegrate him.

It isn't just Deadpool, Bunn has implied that this is basically a version of Old Man Logan with the prior issue showing Logan is also a sleeper agent unwillingly helping the villains.

I'm not sure if it was meant to be more than a shout-out, or if it was Logan and not, say, Laura. The Old Man Logan timeline is pretty well established by now, so it's really jumping the gun to call this a prequel or an alternate version.

Oh, it's a shout-out, but it's also clearly Logan who was the one who did the killing. All the same X-Men are dead, and Jubilee being the exact focus of the panels (ala OML) really suggest it was Logan who did that killing. Add the fact that basically, Logan did the same to a degree during the story, and it would make sense that the villains had more than one agent to use.

We'll see in the conclusion given Skull and Doom are in this (and we know they both survive till OML). Everyone else though is fair game.

Thing is, it can't be a deliberate OML prequel, because it's explicitly the modern "All-New All-Different" era. Hank Pym is dead before the story starts, so his giant bones aren't part of the landscape somewhere; Jane became Thor and died on a Greek island somewhere, so Mjolnir isn't lying at "Hammer Falls" in the midwestern U.S.; Bruce is either depowered or dead, since Amadeus is the Hulk; and depending on how far you want to take it, Lemire established what happened to a bunch of other characters in the OML ongoing, and a bunch of those characters have shown up in Kills Again, dying in different ways.

At best, it's a shout-out. For all we know, Laura killed the X-Men.

Why would you remake one of the most poorly conceived and written comics of recent history?

Huh, is that opening art style meant to evoke Casper and Richie Rich?
