Marvel Dice Masters: Deadpool: Evil Deadpool
This November sees the newest release for WizKids‘ Dice Masters, Marvel Dice Masters: Deadpool. The set is focused on Deadpool’s world including the X-Men and Weapon X, but the set also includes some other familiar characters and the first appearance of the Inhumans team affiliation. I’ll be reviewing a card a day until the set’s release in a few weeks. But, beyond discussing the cards and how they fit into the Dice Masters game, I’ll also focus on the characters themselves and if the card reflects their comic history.
Next up is Evil Deadpool: Bang! Bang! Bang!, the uncommon version of the card.
Art: Nick Bradshaw, Deadpool Vol. 2 #45
Comic origin: This character goes back to 2011 from Deadpool Vol. 2 #45 written by Daniel Way and art by Salvador Espin. What would happen if a collection of Deadpool’s frozen, severed body parts were to be thrown into a dumpster and then, once thawed, fuse together to form a new–and totally evil–Deadpool? Yup… This is one I’ve never read so that’s about what I got.
Live action version: This version of Deadpool hasn’t been in any films.
Card playability: The card is 4 BOLT and 3 total to field which is decent for the stats, but I’m not sure there’s anything that really makes it really jump out at me. The 2 damage is nice, but to a level 1 character it’s limiting. And, it’s only really useful if there’s a lot of Deadpool being played against. So in a draft, this is good, on a regular build, maybe not so much.
Card vs. Comic: I’m not getting the connection. Maybe the subtitle it fits?
Final Thoughts: Not really digging this one as a whole. As a draft card it could be nice, but beyond that I’m just not seeing it being useful enough.
