I like her outfit but why no leggings? That always bothered me about the New 52 Supergirl costume, though I believe they've changed it now.

I've hated on Gwenpool in the past, but I just read a post arguing Jar Jar is a sith lord and not only did I believe it, I wanted it. Long story short, I'm doubting everything I ever knew, so bring it on Gwenpool.

@_andy_can: New 52 Harley started acting a lot like Deadpool though so I'd say this is normal.

@thegoodcaptain: She is a Gwen from another universe, that like some other things after Secret Wars, has passed over to the main 616 Marvel Universe. Her actual face isnt scarred and she looks completely different from Gwen Stacy but shares the name, she wasnt injured so its unclear whether she has a healing factor.

Hold on...... This seems like:

Squirrel Girl+ Spider-Gwen+ Deadpool= This BS

Even though I don't like the idea, I'll still check it out. But I'm pretty sure Lady Deadpool is way better than this gal.

Not sure about all those shifts in art....

Still, looks fun like it might be fun. Might grab if it isn't too pricey. Also, so much hate in here. >_>

Why is the supposed Muslim superhero (Ms. Marvel) celebrating Christmas? Islam has its own holidays, but do you ever see those represented? How is it even logical to display a character in such a controversial manner? Granted, I don't know much about her character, but every time she pops up I begin to wonder who's version of Islam is she supposed to be following exactly? Dust from X-Men was a way better example of Islam than Ms. Marvel. You would never see Dust parading around carrying a Christmas tree. Then again, Dust's House of M version is basically a slap in the face to her original Islamic counterpart. It's almost like some writers get in over their heads when they try to represent this religion in comics, and they always seem to slip up. It's kind of irritating. Not unbearable, just irritating.

P.S.: This is not an attack on or a criticism of Christmas at all. This is mostly a criticism of Muslim representation in comics. Just pointing something out.

@currentthor2015: Marvel Just wants to earn money. That's All what's in their minds. They Don't mind disappointing the fans because they are already.

@tx12100: Hate to break it to you but every non charity company wants to make money, thats how business works. And they clearly havent disappointed everyone or the sales wouldnt be so high, as people arent going to buy something they dont like. I like a lot of the changes myself, not a fan of Miles coming to 616 but I dont have a problem with anything else right now.

@_andy_can: Seem Legit. Harley Quinn is becamed the DC Deadpool, and a Female Alternate Deadpool became the Marvel Harley Quinn...

Anyway: who care? If the comic is funny or interesting, I'm in even for copycat :)

Is Gwenpool new?

Anyone who wears a Deadpool costume is cool, but why Gwen out of a lot of people?

Would be funny if Ms. Marvel made a Deadpool suit, since she's probably a fan.
