Did Deadpool Kill Everyone in the Marvel Universe?

Deadpool, the “Merc with a Mouth”, is one of the most popular and iconic characters in the Marvel Universe. Known for his sarcastic wit, fourth-wall-breaking humor, and brutal fighting style, Deadpool has become a fan-favorite since his debut in 1991.

But what happens when this anti-hero decides to take on the entire Marvel Universe? Did he really kill everyone? Let’s take a closer look.

The Storyline

In 2012, Marvel Comics released a limited series titled “Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe”. The storyline was written by Cullen Bunn and illustrated by Dalibor Talajic. The series consisted of four issues and was set in an alternate universe where Deadpool goes on a killing spree and systematically eliminates every superhero and supervillain in the Marvel Universe.

The Plot

The story begins with Deadpool being sent to an insane asylum after suffering from a mental breakdown. However, instead of receiving help, he is brainwashed by a mysterious figure who wants to use him as a weapon against all superheroes.

As a result, Deadpool becomes convinced that all superheroes are responsible for his mental state and begins his killing spree. He starts with low-level heroes such as D-listers like Squirrel Girl and Howard the Duck but quickly moves on to more powerful characters like Thor, Spider-Man, and even the X-Men.

The Aftermath

By the end of the series, Deadpool has killed every single hero and villain in the Marvel Universe, including cosmic entities like Galactus and Eternity. He then turns his attention towards other fictional universes such as Star Wars and Harry Potter.

However, it is later revealed that this was not actually the main Marvel Universe but rather an alternate reality created by Mephisto. The real heroes are safe but this alternate reality is left devastated with no heroes left to protect it.


“Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe” is a dark and violent alternate reality story that showcases the full extent of Deadpool’s powers and his willingness to use them for evil. While it may not be canon in the main Marvel Universe, it remains a popular storyline among fans and has even inspired a sequel titled “Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe Again”.

In conclusion, while Deadpool did indeed kill everyone in an alternate reality, the main Marvel Universe remains safe from his wrath. However, with Deadpool being such a wild card character, who knows what he’ll do next?
