Deadpool - The Flummoxing Four - Grant McLaughlin

Panel 1 is an inset panel that doesn't take up a ton of space in the top left of the page.  Panel 2 is a splash that takes up the rest of it.

1 - Establishing shot of the Baxter Building.  Daytime.

CAPTION: The Baxter Building.

JOHNNY STORM (from within the building) (1): No.

JOHNNY STORM (from within the building) (2): Absolutely not.

2 - Deadpool stands in a room of the Baxter Building, wearing Sue Storm's old "sexy" costume.  He wears it as a starlet showing off a becoming gown would, although it obviously does not fit him terribly well.  Johnny Storm stands in the same room, exasperated.  He puts a hand to his temple, as if trying to fight off an oncoming headache.

JOHNNY STORM: You cannot join the Fantastic Four!

DEADPOOL (1): Awww!  But you let Spider-Man do it!  And he's already on, like, a Brazilian teams!

DEADPOOL (quietly) (2): Is it 'cuz this outfit makes my butt look big?


  1. Well, that's a visual I'll be taking to the grave.

  2. The insert panel was perfectly judged, it gave the page a tiny beat that lead into the reveal of Deadpools new get up adding to the impact of it way more than just having the full splash.

    Also the back and forth between Johnny and Deadpool is so fun and that final line was all kinds of great.

  3. Wade just loves getting in women's clothing. A solid gag which is a nice call back to other female costumes Deadpool has donned.
