Boba Fett might be the most popular bounty hunters in Lucasfilm's galaxy far, far away, but according to Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld, Marvel's Merc with a Mouth could pretty much beat the lights out of Jango's clone.
Speaking in an interview with The Star Wars Show, Liefeld was asked who'd come out on top in a fight between Boba Fett and Deadpool in some alternate reality where the two get to meet. Though he might seem a bit biased, Liefeld explains that Deadpool pretty much the upper hand in a battle with Star Wars' favorite bounty hunter – mostly because of his regenerative power.
"Oh, my gosh, okay, one of the greatest fights you'd ever see, right? But you can't beat Deadpool," Liefeld said in response. "You just can't. I stole Wolverine's healing factor, Marvel let me. I'm like, 'Hey, can I make that he was part of the Weapon X thing and can he have...yeah, okay, yeah, I can do that? Click.' There may be this other character, a Caped Crusader, and these guys make some really good fan films and I'm like, 'Oh, they made one of the Caped Crusader guy versus Deadpool.' There's no way that battle ends without Deadpool killing the Caped Crusader. There's no way. There's not one instance. I don't care how smart he is, he does not get one up on [him]. You can't kill him. You can blow a hole through him and he'll go, 'Hey Boba.'"
Liefeld makes a good point. It doesn't really matter how competent Boba Fett is. He might be the best bounty hunter in the Star Wars universe, but Marvel's brassy Merc would just come back to life again, and again, and again.
Of course, the comic book writer doesn't rule out the possibility of other Star Wars characters killing off Deadpool. According to Liefeld, Darth Vader actually might be able to put an end to Wade Wilson with his saber.
"Do I think Deadpool would have a problem with him, as much as I love him? No," Liefeld said. "Darth Vader may be different. I saw what he did at the end of Rogue One, that was scary. Darth could separate Deadpool into enough pieces that would never form again."
What do you think? Could Vader chop Deadpool enough so that he doesn't ever come back? Maybe Vader could use the Force to kill the Merc with a Mouth. Who knows.
