    As I walked down the street to a local comic book shop, I thought to myself “what am I going to read today”. I walked into the store not knowing what I was going to get, so I started looking around and found several different brands of comics. There was Marvel, DC Universe, and Dark Horse Comics. I looked at them all and it was crazy there were so many good titles like “Deadpool”, ”Star Wars”,and ”Batman”. I was so intrigued by it all I must have sat there for hours daydreaming. It was hard enough looking at the comics, but the collectibles they had were crazy. I sat there drooling over the thought of “what if that was in my collection?” I figured I should just go ask the guy in the front what should I get, so I did. As I walked to…

    The first four issues of the “Deadpool Killogy” falls under the title “Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe”, which is the main focus of this rhetorical analysis.

    It is often forgotten that creators themselves remain a part of the fandom. To write for a character, they must understand everything about them and consider which parts they want to individualize. Nick Spencer has been a writer for Marvel since 2015. His current string of Captain America comics is unconventional, where the hero who is meant to be a “star-spangled symbol of morality, selflessness, and freedom, is now one of the Marvel universe’s most insidious villains” and working for an evil…

In Marvel Comics, the Watchers seem to only make a brief appearance at some point in the story (usually at the beginning), and from there let the characters tell their own story; the reader completely forgets that the…
