Today is a sad day. Why? Because Marvel just announced via Nerdist that in Deadpool #250, coming out in April, will be the death of our beloved Merc With a Mouth. The issue will be "an all-star writing and art jam, with some of the most popular creators from [Deadpool](movie:38663)’s past contributing to the issue, including writers Gerry Duggan, Brian Posehn, Ben Acker, Ben Blacker, Nick Giovanetti, Paul Scheer, Jason Mantzoukas, and Mike Drucker, and artists like Scott Koblish and Mike Hawthorne."
According to Gerry Duggan, the plot for #250 that kills him will be a story that has been culminating since the first issue of Marvel NOW Deadpool.
In the past 6 months, Marvel has killed off two of its most popular X-Men, and although they're almost guranteed to come back, it's a bold move, especially with solo Wolverine and Deadpool movies on the way.
