This week, the Avenging Archer takes on the Merc With a Mouth in a confrontation for the history books in HAWKEYE VS. DEADPOOL #0, the first issue in a new limited series from critically-acclaimed DEADPOOL scribe Gerry Duggan and artist Matteo Lolli! This is the Hawkeye & Deadpool comic 75 years in the making! Give or take 75 years! A Halloween murder mystery and a S.H.I.E.L.D. espionage mission are about to send these two on a collision course with destiny – and each other! Not to mention the desire to one-up the other!
“There is a real threat,” says series writer Gerry Duggan, in an interview with Marvel.com. “There’s a very important thumb drive that’s missing, containing details on the personal and family lives of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. When different organizations hear about this, it becomes a bit of a dog pile.”
“There’s an expectation, too, with a title like HAWKEYE VS. DEADPOOL, that there will be a confrontation between these two,” continues Duggan. “I think we make that happen in a smart way. It’s not the same old take on the misunderstanding that often sends two heroes into conflict. We have a twist on that.”
Long ago, champions emerged to fight the evil that plagued humanity – champions that fought for salvation, for all that was good and just in the world. Kind, generous and self-sacrificing – they were heroes.
These are not those heroes…
Who will win in this titanic clash of Avenger and X-Man? Two men enter. One man leaves. Then shortly after, the other man leaves! It all kicks off this week in HAWKEYE VS. DEADPOOL #0!
