Deadpool may be stepping up to become the new Black Panther in the Marvel Universe.
This week, the first issue of Black Panther vs. Deadpool hits stores, but Marvel Comics recently released the solicitation for Black Panther vs. Deadpool #4, the penultimate issue of the series. The issue’s cover, created by Ryan Benjamin and Rain Beredo, reveals Wade Wilson wearing a new costume that looks like a mashup of his Deadpool gear and T’Challa’s Black Panther suit.
Take a look below:
The solicitation text dubs this new look “Panther-Pool.”
The story of Black Panther vs. Deadpool involves Deadpool going to Wakanda to try to obtain a chunk of vibranium. Though his goals may be altruistic, T’Challa does not trust Wade, and so superhero fight scene hijinks ensue.
Here was the official plot summary released when the series was announced:
We’re still not sure how that ends up with Wade sitting on the Wakandan throne.
Editor Wil Moss teased, “Featuring a brawl you can only get in comics (for now anyway), Black Panther vs. Deadpool is the best of both worlds, equal parts Black Panther/Wakanda and Deadpool/Crazytown. In bouncing these two characters off each other (and sometimes through each other), Daniel and Ricardo have found some really fascinating insights into what makes them tick as individuals.”
