Warning: Spoilers ahead for Deadpool, in theaters now.

Right down to the toppings on his pizza, there's a scene in the Deadpool movie that's remarkably similar to one seem during Daniel Way's run on the Deadpool comic.

Bleeding Cool remembered the scene from 2008’s Deadpool #10, and you can see a page of it below:


Similar, but not identical. After all, in the movie it's a pre-Deadpool Wade Wilson, who spares the life of a dejected stalker. He's pathetic, more than malicious, and it's made exceptionally clear that he's far too terrified to do anything but behave himself going forward.

In the comics, it was Deadpool rather than Wade who goes after a bully rather than a stalker, and who kills him rather than sending him home with a case of the brown pants.

Based upon Marvel Comics’ most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
