Why Marvel hasn't made these, I have no idea...


After the Deadpool Corps defeats the Awareness and saves the earth (from danger that wouldn't have got there for eight thousand years) the Contemplator gives the team power rings! Well, not quite. The Contemplator explains each ring will only work once, but will summon an Elder of the Universe; which may just have been his way of getting back at the others like the Grandmaster, the Collector, or the Champion.

I'm pretty sure DC's taken a lot of the top spots of the sales charts with their new 52; but Marvel really should've stolen a page from DC's playbook and gone with promotional rings. I'm not just saying that because I want one. Really. From Deadpool Corps #5, written by Victor Gischler, pencils by Rob Liefeld, inks by Adelso Corona.

Ok, I admit it. Deadpool rings and a corps is actually a little funny. Comics don't seem to LIKE funny any more.

Oh I agree, Marvel could've really taken the piss out of DC with promotional rings of their own, and they should have....you know since their "friendly competiton" now right?
