Deadpool is the most beautiful of all the superheroes out there today, though I do have to admit, if it were “Deadpool vs the Crow” I do think … well, I am not going to tell you what I think on that.
Like Ozymandias in the Watchmen, love him, hate him, Deadpool does all the hard work and gets the job done. Unlike what we can say about all the other super guys and girls who got their collective asses handed to them by Thanos.
If you were a superhero, wouldn’t you feel burning jealous of Deadpool?
Rhetorical question, because of course you would not. Just look at the guy. He’s in the flesh. He isn’t missing all of those bullets like Luke Skywalker in Star Wars. He is taking them.
But, he gets through it all and keeps on going. And worse of all, he is having a good time doing it.
My point is, if you go by the outer person, and that is the race you are running, then you know how that ends. Everyone is going to die, so why even run that race at all?
But if you are running the race of the inner self… then you are not going to be jealous of those who do more work then you. Because that work is for you and their winning, well, you win right along with them.
If you could be any superhero you wanted to be… would you really choose Deadpool?
“With great power comes great responsibility”. Yeah. Well, for Deadpool that is insanity and a gift that really hurts.
What if Deadpools’ insanity is really sanity and he is “just ahead of the curve”? (Ala, Heath Ledger’s Joker.) (Only not a dick.)
(The Joker role he played. Not the actor.)
But, pretend for a moment you are a superhero and these scenarios in the “Marvel Universe” are all real. What superhero are you?
And would you be jealous of Deadpool?
(And no, I am not Deadpool. And yes, I wish I were. Kind of. In the real world, I would be arrested in a flash for going around and killing a bunch of innocent civilians just to make some damned movie.)
(And, no, I do not really wish I were.)
(But I really love that “Angel of the Morning” song. Damned. )
(If Deadpool’s powers really had Domino’s powers, too, well, that would be good. Then, I do want to be Deadpool.)
(And, yeah, newsflash Morty, he does have Domino’s powers. Might as well rip that band aid off right now.)
