Deadpool Max, a comic-book installment of the superhero saga that stormed the U.S. box office, includes a chapter about the bungling superhero's face-off with Zemo, a white supremacist hellbent on repeating the Holocaust. Deadpool's adversary spouts radical anti-Semitic conspiracy theories on his way to the grave.
David Lapham, the author, follows the chapter up with a note of caution to his readers, explaining that the historical figures and events praised by Zemo — the Holocaust, Hitler, and the KKK — are deplorable. "I know you're all savvy readers who get sarcasm and satire," Lapham writes.
A new promo trailer for forthcoming Netflix super hero mash-up The Defenders just dropped, and while Marvel icon Stan Lee delivers a pretty inspiring monologue as each of the series’ principal characters — Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist — get a moment in the spotlight, the real standout star has just two seconds of screen time.
You know how it goes. It’s the freakin’ weekend, you toss back a few with your buddies, and then maybe a few more. At some point, blammo: You got accelerated healing powers, a one-piece lycra suit, and a hankering to do to a cheesy gordita crunch what Limp Bizkit did to music in the late ’90s.
