They made a big deal over it; people laughed, people cried, people even said good riddance to an over-rated underachiever. All the local comic book stores were talking about how they had definitely, definitively, killed him off for good. I was told no canon could save him, but I knew the Merc I loved would grace fresh comic book pages again.
Sure enough, barely 2 months after his "grand finale", they are bringing him back to team up with Thanos for a 4 issue mini-series starting in September. The reasoning behind it could only be explained as the perfect un-death to his perfect death.
In DEADPOOL VS. THANOS #1, It is discovered that Death herself has disappeared when people stop dying. Thanos, having always been in love with the deadly dame, is forced to team up with Deadpool; who Death loves, to save her. Assuming that he was truly killed off, the disappearance of Death explains why Deadpool... didn't actually die.

I wonder how the mouthy mercenary will handle having the right to his perfect death taken from him? Or how they will explain his impossible resurrection.
