Fanboy Rampage: What If A Janitor Created Deadpool?

deadpoolgraphic

Wait, what’s this? Something that can distract me from Coldplay playing at the Super Bowl? I’m in!

Basically the New York Times ran an interview with Rob Liefeld where he said a few things about the creative process with writer Fabian Nicieza over the creation of Deadpool. It was titled “Meet The Prime Mover Behind The Mercenary.”

He is prickly, though, about sharing creator credit on Deadpool with Fabian Nicieza, who wrote the script for the character’s first appearance, based on Mr. Liefeld’s story. As plotter, penciler and inker of The New Mutants at the time of Deadpool’s inception, Mr. Liefeld said he did “all the heavy lifting.”

“If a janitor scripted New Mutants 98, he’d be the co-creator — that’s how it works, buddy,” Mr. Liefeld said. “Deadpool does not exist in any way, shape or form without me.”

It didn’t go over well with some. Though I am reminded of this Hillary Clinton joke.

Out of curiousity, any writers reading this who would like to work with Rob Liefeld?

There we go.

But Kurt Busiek was halfway through his lesson plan.

But as to the article that started all this fuss?

So no one’s happy…. and Fabian has kept his own counsel. For now,

Nahhhhh…..

Deadpool opens on Wednesday in the UK and Friday in the USA. The 25th anniversary issue of Deadpool ships on Wednesday.

Fanboy Rampage was a blog by Graeme McMillan dedicated to the funniest, most ludicrous and most inappropriate comic book back-and-forths online. McMillan has moved on now, becoming a proper journalist for the likes of The Hollywood Reporter and Wired but he gave permission to Bleeding Cool to revive his great creation. Feel free to suggest your own observed spots of online excess.
