Huge news, Marvel fans! Marvel Comics has just announced a new comic series that will be titled Deadpool verses The Punisher! This book will be all kinds of badass. From writer Fred Van Lente and artist Pepe Perez, this book will see two legendary mercenaries out to kill each other and fan reaction seems very positive so far.
It was revealed by Fred Van Lente that the two heroes will be pitted against each other because of a new villain named "The Bank". When talking about The Bank, Van Lente stated,
"The Bank is a shadowy character who’s existed in the Marvel Universe for decades, but we’ve never heard of him before because he is very much off the grid—he’s as his name implies a money man, who handles offshore accounts for a variety of amoral-to-immoral characters and organizations.
He also happens to be one of Wade Wilson’s best friends, having known Deadpool before his Weapon X days, and so when Punisher decides to bring The Bank down, he’s got to go through Deadpool to do that, and you know what? Frank doesn’t really have a problem with that, since he doesn’t like Wade all that much anyway.
There’s a bit more to it than that, but that would get into spoiler territory, so I will leave it there for now…"This new series will launch in April and I know that these clashing personalities are going to create one amazing bloodbath of a comic.
