New York, NY—March 12th, 2015— That’s right! Add up all the Deadpool series (creatively), and April’s DEADPOOL #45 marks Wade Wilson’s landmark 250th issue! How is he celebrating? He’s dying! The end of the line comes for all, even one such as Deadpool, but he’s not gone yet! Say your condolences with this new look at the colossal-sized series finale!

First, Gerry Duggan, Brian Posehn and Mike Hawthorne serve up a 30-page main story, as the villainous Ultimatum finally makes their move. They’re coming for Deadpool – every last one of them! It’s going to be a bloodbath, but Wade’s going to go down swinging.

Then – Gerry, Brian and Scott Koblish bring you a long lost, full length Deadpool tale. Remember when Wade got a hold of the Infinity Gauntlet? No? Don’t worry – that’s what the story is for. And yes, you should be worried Wade Wilson is in possession of nigh-infinite cosmic power. First order of business? Summon the entire Marvel Universe for the ROAST OF DEADPOOL!

Finally, a killer (see what we did there?) line-up of celebrities, comedians and friends of ol’ Wade as they pay tribute to the Merc With a Mouth. Say goodbye alongside Paul Scheer, Nick Giovannetti, Scott Aukerman, Ben Acker, Ben Blacker, Jason Mantzoukas, Mike Drucker and more!

Wade will soon be gone, but never forgotten! Especially as he’s poised to make such a grand exit. And you can be there for the ride. No fan can afford to miss the massive 250th issue this April when DEADPOOL #45 comes to stores this April!

Comics rising star Jeff Loveness (Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Amazing Spider-Man Special) joins Marvel newcomer Brian Kesinger (Disney Animation) for an epic galactic road trip of cosmic proportions!

“We have the kinds of wacky situations a giant space tree can find himself in,” series Editor Devin Lewis says, “but we’re also striving to show what makes Groot one of the noblest and wisest characters in the Marvel Universe. There are as many feels in this book as there are chuckles, and it’s going to surprise people.”

‘SECRET WARS’ WILL END THE MARVEL UNIVERSE

During a “Secret Wars Kick-Off Event” that was held this afternoon at Midtown Comics in New York City, Marvel EIC Axel Alonso and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort proclaimed the end of the Marvel Universe as we know it. In fact the Secret Wars event will also mark the end of the Ultimate Universe, which will collide with the mainstream Marvel Universe. Alonso put it this way: “The Ultimate Universe and the Marvel Universe, they are gone to slap together. Imagine two pizzas, they’re going to combine toppings, some toppings are going to drop off–and this is the Marvel Universe going forward. It’s more than the Marvel Universe and Ultimate Universe, it’s all the universes you can imagine.”

Once the Ultimate and Marvel Universes start to intersect in what Marvel calls an “incursion,” which will happen in issue #1 of Secret Wars, the heroes of the two worlds will have about 8 hours to figure out what do about it before both universes are destroyed–and according to Brevoort, “They won’t.” Brevoort explained the resulting chaos from the intersection will be known as “Battleworld, the detritus, the melting world from which the new Marvel Universe will be fermented… Once you hit Secret Wars #1, there’s no Marvel Universe, there’s no Ultimate Universe, it’s all Battleworld.”

The end of the Ultimate Universe has been widely forecast–the only ongoing Ultimate title after February will be the Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man book, and the way Marvel has been treating Miles, don’t be surprised if he makes the cut and becomes part of the post-Battleworld, newly reconstituted Marvel Universe.

At the press conference Marvel revealed an interactive map of Battleworld, revealing the different “countries” where surviving characters exist. The teasers released by Marvel so far only account for a portion of the Battleworld landscape and characters, so expect a series of major announcements over the next few weeks, since only “the tip of the iceberg” has been revealed so far. Marvel’s Chris D’Lando, who moderated the proceedings, noted that more tie-ins to the massive crossover event were in the works, stating “we haven’t even announced half of the titles yet.”

The question that naturally springs to mind is whether or not Marvel is rebooting all of its titles and essentially destroying 54 years of continuity that has marked the Marvel Universe since its creation by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, et al in 1961? Alonzo described Secret Wars “putting an endcap to decades of stories, and starting a new era.” There will certainly be opportunities for change–as Alonzo put it, “If we wanted to resurrect Gwen Stacy, this would be the place to do it.” As if to highlight the changes Alonzo pointed to a cover image showing a married Peter Parker with Mary Jane and baby daughter in tow, and said “If you’re an Amazing Spider-Man reader, this is going to be your book,” and adding “We’re launching a wealth of new series, both ongoing and minis, during Secret Wars.”
