Marvel Announces Deadpool vs. Old Man Logan

Two of Marvel's hardest-to-kill characters will face off in a new miniseries this fall. It's called Deadpool vs. Old Man Logan, and it continues the comic book company's "Deadpool vs." tradition with writer. Wrier Declan Shalvey (Moon Knight, Deadpool) and artist Mike Henderson (Secret Wars: Battleworld) are bringing together Deadpool and Logan in the latest miniseries.

"Deadpool vs. Old Man Logan has everything I've wanted to see in either a Deadpool book, or a Wolverine book," Shalvey wrote in a statement. "We get to see both characters be the best at what they do, while also getting to see them be the classic odd-couple. Both characters naturally bump heads against each other, which is a lot of fun to write. I've been so fortunate to have Heather Antos edit this book. It's been a dream working on it, she's done everything she could to make this book what I want it to be, and a great working experience to boot."

In the new miniseries, Logan is looking for a newly-discovered Omega-level mutant. When he refuses Deadpool's offer to help, Deadpool "vows to outmatch his newly marked enemy for the entirety of their mission."

"Importantly, the book features Old Man Logan though, not Wolverine," Shalvey points out. "That character has a different kind of baggage than old-school Logan, which makes him relate to Wade Wilson more than one might think. The characters have a lot in common, so having a book featuring both really makes sense, but they are clearly very different personalities, that's been a great thing to play with."

"Deadpool vs. Old Man Logan is a not so buddy-buddy buddy comedy with all the bickering, explosions and stabbing you'd expect from a comic starring Deadpool and Logan as they both race to do their version of the right thing by a young mutant," Mike Henderson explained. "Declan has written this flaming runaway train of an action script that feels like drawing a Jason Statham movie and Lee Loughridge is bringing the heat on colors. So anyone who wouldn't mind seeing our two heroes cut their way through some faceless corporate jackboots won't want to miss it because it's been crazy fun to draw."

Deadpool vs. Old Man Logan #1 will be available in October.
