This already intrigues me, but of which sense do you refer?

There was some that pointed out Deadpool's striking similarity to Deathstroke when he first appeared. However, they're quite different now. I don't imagine Deathstroke's voice has a 'Demi Moore' quality or that he's ever said 'chimichanga' for comedic purposes or ever broken the forth wall.

wade wilson-slade wilson, both assassins, both have been scientifically inhanced. both immortal. similar powers. use similar weapons. sometimes look similar. in one of the dc stories a deathstroke from another dimension tries to refer to himself as deadpool. i dont know much about deathstroke but absolutely love deadpool, i was considerng reading some deathstroke and when i looked him up they seem to be the same person... which i think is cool cause it adds to his fourth wall ability.

Deadpool is much cooler. At least he's annoying on purpose (as a brilliant distractionary tactic against his foes), whereas Deathstroke is annoying just by his very existence.

Yet, deathstroke is not as good as deadpool, which doesn´t means he is not cool too. I must bow down to DP unique style and his way of making fun of anything and being really annoying on purpose. Even if he is a psycho or anything.

But, i guess the OPs point is valid, and donnieman just confirms that. Tough, i oughta do some reasearch to sort this information and confirm anything.

Anyways, great characters, don´t ya agree?

Such as the Squadron Supreme and their relativity to the Justice League of America, no?

Superman/Batman recently featured a team that had a remarkable resemblance to the old Avengers and Spider-man.

I always thought Deadpool was supposed to be a parody of Deathstroke.

I thought so too, but apparently he must have gotten lucky with a visionary writer. Marvel does not do well with DC clones.
