Connected Digital World: High Moon Deadpool‘s box art has been leaked ahead of next month’s launch. TheDeadpool cover features the eponymous anti-hero alongside characters such as Wolverine, Psylocke, Cable, Rogue and Domino.
The character, who is known for breaking the fourth wall, is accompanied by a self-recommendation in place of a review quote.
The action brawler features platforming and shooter elements and includes various Marvel character cameos, as well as Wade Wilson’s typical narration.
Nolan North will reprise his role as the voice of Deadpool following Marvel vs Capcom 3,Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions and the Hulk vs animated television show.
Marvel: Debuting on May 29, Brian Wood's X-MEN has already gotten fans talking and readers ready for the team's next stage of evolution.
The team consists of heavy-hitters Storm, Psylocke, Kitty Pryde, Rogue, Rachel Grey and Jubilee, a roster that's being brought to life in the opening arc by artist Olivier Coipel.
X-MEN #4 adds artist David Lopez to the title's creative team. Last year he provided pulse-pounding pencils to Wood's dynamic run on X-MEN and he’s also contributed to NEW MUTANTS as well as WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN. Following Lopez in the rotation will be UNCANNY X-MEN stalwart Terry Dodson.
We spoke with Wood about the action-packed artistic future of X-MEN.
Marvel.com: Brian, David Lopez previously collaborated with you on last year's X-MEN series. Was he a shoe-in for inclusion from the get go?
Brian Wood: I think it was always the plan and everyone's intention to bring David in as soon as possible. Certainly for me it was. I love David's work and it clicks just right with my words.
Marvel.com: Both Olivier and David are phenomenal artists who excel at drawing character emotion and action. But what makes them different? Is David's arc a story best suited for David Lopez, and how so?
Brian Wood: I always try and tailor the script to the strengths of the artist, so yeah, I'll have that in mind when I come up with ideas and write the actual scripts for David, just like I did for Olivier, and everyone else I work with. As far as what makes them different—I mean, I generally dislike comparing artists like that, but they are both proven, solid, amazing X-Men artists.
Marvel.com: Your previous run on X-MEN contained equal parts personal drama and high action. Will a similar balance be played out in David's new issues, or will it be heavier on one side?
Brian Wood: Well, ideally, we'll find the right mix. Action and drama is basically what the X-Men is as a concept. But this new series, this is designed to be a very action-heavy book, so what you'll probably see, comparing it to last year's X-MEN, is bigger, badder, and seriously amped up action alongside the drama and the interpersonal stuff. David's up to the task, I know he is!
Marvel.com: When picking artists for X-MEN, what has to be considered? Is there a unifying trait that Olivier, Terry and David all have?
Brian Wood: Being great? [Laughs] That's the most honest answer. Put together like that, this is a dream team. I missed working with Terry way back in 1999 when I came onto GENERATION X just as he was moving off it, and so I'm happy to finally get the chance to work with him.
Marvel.com: Is there one character in particular that each artist seems to have gravitated towards? Does one of their takes on one of the X-Men stand out as particularly exciting?
Brian Wood: It's hard for me to say since it all looks solid to me. I know from talking to Olivier at C2E2 recently that he feels pretty strongly about Storm, and I know David draws a killer Storm from working with him last year. Personally, I'm a big Jubilee fan so she's who I'm looking out for the most. Oh, also, Rogue! In my stories, I'm amping her up a bit, making her a total brawler, and I love how Olivier's drawn her in all these action scenes.
"And just to speak for myself, modesty was never a factor. I never approached Storm's, or Psylocke's, or Spiral's designs with the sole intention of hiding their skin. The amount of real estate that ended up being covered or not was ENTIRELY dictated by my attempt to respect the character. There was no "Psylocke has to be fully covered because it would be indecent for any of her skin to be showing". I wanted to have her covered because I felt that a character who is performing stealth assassinations would want as little would-able flesh showing." Full Article
Spoilers: Issue starts with Spiral still trying to escape Bishop. Meanwhile, Psylocke continues to fight the Demon Bear now inside Bishop's psyche on the Astral Plane. During Psylocke's battle a white owl warps the Demon Bear away and warns Psylocke that they are fighting the wrong enemy and that another psychic is who they should be after. Psylocke is then ejected from the astral plane and back to reality with Storm and Puck. Spiral can't run any longer and decides to fight back against Bishop. Fantomex and Cluster watch from a far, and Dark Fantomex ambushes both of them. Bishop defeats Spiral and grabs Ginny and a giant Owl avatar emerges from Bishop and into Ginny. Ginny then vanishes while Storm and Puck defeat Bishop. Spiral gives up now that Ginny is seemingly gone. Psylocke confronts Spiral and tells her to pick up her sword and fight her. Spiral defeated, physically and emotionally, doesn't fight back. Psylocke reflects and leaves Spiral to herself. Storm comforts Psylocke and tells her she still loves her regardless of the bad choices she has made recently. Wolverine takes notice of their activity via internet and is taken by surprise. Ginny then reappears elsewhere with a group of people all possessed by the evil entity that was previously possessing Bishop.
