By Andrew Wheeler

Marvel has a rich assortment of devils in its vaults, and in the second arc of DEADPOOL, Wade Wilson will run up against one of them, courtesy of writers Gerry Dugan and Brian Posehn and artist Mike Hawthorne.

Deadpool's got a new demon buddy, Vetis, a lowly middle-manager in the bureaucracy of hell, so we asked Gerry and Brian for Wade's take on some of the bigger, badder threats from the lower reaches of the Marvel Universe.


Ancient extra-dimensional demon; “He Who Sleeps But Shall Awake”

Gerry Duggan: Deadpool saw them open for Gwar once. 

Brian Posehn: Yep, crazy pit at that show.


Marvel's best-known and most archetypal soul-bartering hell demon

Gerry Duggan: I think Deadpool knows enough not to mess with him. He's the King Of Hell. Though, even kings can be manipulated...

Brian Posehn: I think you have to know how to spell something to fear it.


Ghost Rider's soul-devouring Spirit of Vengeance

Gerry Duggan: He's one of Deadpool's favorites because he had a "Trading Places" style bet with the Beyonder about whether they could break Spider-Man.

Brian Posehn: Nice one, Gerry. Nerd.


The Dread One; Doctor Strange's demonic nemesis

Gerry Duggan: He's the Sorcerer Supreme of Australia, right?

Brian Posehn: I had a Sorcerer Supreme from Taco Bell last night. It gave me bad dormammu.


Other-dimensional Fear Lord and ravager of worlds

Gerry Duggan: This is what Deadpool calls the clump in the corner that contains his boxers, inside his pants after a night out.

Brian Posehn: Yuck. I would've gone the hacky route and made a mother-in-law joke.

Come back tomorrow as Gerry and Brian provide an interview on Deadpool’s morals—it could be a short one.
