This really caught me out when I saw the November 2010 solicitations.   

Deadpool Corps #8
Deadpool Corps #8
   Copycat In Deadpool: The Circle Chase
   Copycat In Deadpool: The Circle Chase
No, she's not Vanessa.  Bright blue skin, pure white hair & curves to make an hourglass jealous; a copycat of Copycat?  Someone is either seriously running out of ideas (nothing new there).  Yet more than anything, I'm just disappointed that this isn't the return of Copycat. 
 
This is the solicitation for Deadpool Corps #8:  

Cover, Pencils, Inks & Coloring By: Rob Liefeld
Writer: Victor Gischler
Lettering: Neurotic Cartoonist, Inc 

The Story:  

“YOU SAY YOU WANT A REVOLUTION?” PART 2 On a distant planet, a simple native population revolts against the mighty Omega Confederation. Since the Omega Confederation is paying a lot of money to the galaxy's top mercenaries -- Hello, Deadpool Corps! -- to put down this rebellion, it's no wonder they're a little miffed when Wade Wilson and company appear to have changed sides. So they send a crack squad of recon shock troops to remind Deadpool to do his job. The thing is, not even Deadpool knows for sure who's side he's on. Tune in to watch him figure it out. Oh yeah, and Princess Teala naked too. Parental Advisory …$2.99 

IN STORES: November 10, 2010

I like how Marvel knows how many people hate  Land & Liefeld and they keep employing them. 
 
EDIT:This by far one of the worst images of both characters i've ever seen.

Isn't Deadpool supposed to be completely covered in scars?
 
And for some reason this has reminded me of that stupid song that kids sing about copycats... I'm scared because it makes sense on a philosphical level and I understand it.
 
The story seems a little familiar, why put Deadpool on other planets, it doesn't seem right somehow, having said that it will give him a chance to make fun of all the aliens. I'd like to see a change and just have the DP Corps kill everyone and take over the planet for themselves... probably won't happen though.

It appears Princess Teala is a Copycat rip-off.You would think the picture is of Deadpool and Copycat (because they have history) but it isn't according to the OP.

You mean all those hatches lines aren't scars?  ;) 
 
I was ready to defend Rob Liefeld for this, until I copy & pasted the solicitation & saw that he did the colouring as well.  But, in a way he can get away with it... after all, he did create Copycat.  Although when he 'created' her, she was 'Domino'.  Her blue skin wasn't revealed until he was off X-Force.

Well there are one or two scars (plus a few arrows) but it's it's not exactly:

I honestly can't believe they made that toy... or put him in Marvel Girl's costume. Did something happen while I was gone?

@Shatterstar: Honestly, I just went on the info from the solicitation.  I didn't think RL did his own colours as well... looks like Marvel lied to me!  Like that's the first time that's happened :p

What's up, Rob? YOU MEAN YOU DIDN'T DRAW THEM WITH ANY FEET??? Dammit, how are we supposed to make fun of their feet now? Gosh, I guess I'll have to go buy the issue so I can make fun of some Rob LIEfeld feet. What's with the katana in his hand? That is a katana right? I could sit here and pick apart this picture all night. Marvel is like that guy at the parties... You know the one. The one who tells the best stories, hands you a beer, but then walks out with your date and your car keys at the end of the night. Yeah, that's Marvel alright... *grumbles about Rob screwing with his own creation*

Yep... that's what it's all about. Forget the damn 'Hokey Pokey'.
