Will Absolute Carnage Make Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #1 Canon? (UPDATE – No)

Jude already ran a preview for Absolute Carnage #1 by Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman, out this Wednesday. But we’ve heard some people making the complaint that Jonathan Hickman is getting all the Marvel love at the moment, and Absolute Carnage is slipping between that and Marvel Comics #1000 when it comes to publicity.

Well, just to help out, here’s a look at a couple more… as Deadpool joins the series. The man who hosted Venom before Peter Parker even had a chance – and may have even imprinted his crazy personality onto the symbiote. The canonicity of Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars series has been in question – could this be confirmation that Deadpool was indeed part of Secret Wars all along??

UPDATE: No, apparently, that’s down to me doing this piece on a phone and not seeing the black webbing against the red. I know Deadpool was designed to look like Spider-Man but not this much…
