Spider-Man vs. Deadpool #33 finds our heroes Spider-Man and Old Man Deadpool, along with allies Silk and Mockingbird, captured by a bunch of LMDs (Life-Model Decoys). Some of the many decoys they are up against include Carnage, the Hulk, Ghost Rider, Wolverine, Thanos, Hela, and Thor. Quite the cast of characters!
Old Deadpool found out that he was the cause of many Deadpool LMDs running around in the present time, so he traveled back into the past to try to stop them. Deadpool ends up replacing his younger self in the past. When The Master Matrix shows up, all of the LMDs turn into Deadpools, while still keeping some of their original features. Deadpool is very adamant that they don’t let his LMDs escape, because he wants to make sure nothing will happen to Spider-Man — like what happens in Deadpool’s future.
In this issue, there doesn’t seem to be as much humor as some of the prior issues. There’s a lot of background information, so it feels like it’s more of a set-up for things to come. There are some funny lines where Deadpool seems entirely confused by what year he is in and gives away that he knows Spider-Man’s real identity when he says, “Oh yeah, I look old to you, don’t I? Sorry about that, Parker.” To which Spider-Man replies, “What… did… you just call me…?” After that exchange, Silk (who is great to see in this comic, by the way!) comments, “Uh, does Deadpool appear a little more ancient that he was five minutes ago?”
There isn’t a whole lot of action in this issue either, but it more than makes up for it in giving us more information on what exactly is going on. And it was fun to see such a wide cast of characters, even if most of them were only copies. Not to mention, it was fun having Silk there to comment on Spider-Man and Deadpool. The issue ends with a very surprising reveal for Spider-Man.
I’m hoping to get more into the action in the next issue and see Deadpool take out some Deadpools, which is something that actually happens surprisingly often in the Marvel universe. I’m also hoping to get more Deadpool and Spider-Man interaction and camaraderie in issue #34. Overall, I enjoyed the issue and can’t wait to see what Spider-Man and Deadpool get up to next.
