When Marvel Legacy kicks off this fall, the sometimes tense partnership between Spider-Man and Deadpool will take a much more antagonistic turn.
During the Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends panel at San Diego Comic Con, Marvel announced that the current Spider-Man/Deadpool series will gain the new creative team of Robbie Thompson & Chris Bachalo and the new series title of Spider-Man vs Deadpool.
It’s not a surprising change for the characters since in his own solo book, changing titles to The Despicable Deadpool in October, Deadpool is taking a turn back to a much more villain like state of mind.
Every few issues the series will flash forward to a future where an elderly Wade and Peter will be in a retirement home together.
Both Thompson and Bachalo have previous Spider-Man experience as Thompson recently wrote the flashback Spidey series that featured modern tales of Spider-Man’s earliest days and Bachalo had drawn numerous issues of Amazing Spider-Man over the years.
The duo starts their creative run on the title with November’s Spider-Man vs. Deadpool #23.
