The Grudge Match We Wish Would Be The Plot Of Spider-Man 4

Illustration for article titled The Grudge Match We Wish Would Be The Plot Of Spider-Man 4

Spider-Man will face off against the Merc With A Mouth, Deadpool, in Amazing Spider-Man #611... and it's written by Deadpool super-scribe Joe Kelly. And check out this cover art, which artist Skottie Young posted on his DeviantArt page.


Kelly describes the issue as "a big, baroque comic book story that devolves into a 'yo mama' fight." A nefarious third party pits the two wise-asses in red against each other, to distract Spidey's attention from some other evildoings. But mostly, the plot is just an excuse for Spider-Man's light-hearted banter style to clash with Deadpool's meaner humor and fourth-wall-punching. If only Sam Raimi would grab Kelly's script and use it for a big chunk of Spider-Man 4...

I've been waiting for sooo so long for Skottie Young to do another big Marvel book.

His art for "The Return of Magik" storyline in New X-Men several years back was mind-meltingly beautiful and unique.

He's like Chris Bacchleo exccept more refined and less exaggerated. Coloring was brilliant as well.
