Remember what I said about Marvel keeping the core of Deadpool’s character intact by making sure only Fabian Nicieza, his co-creator, wrote about him? Well, this put an end to that. In 1994, Deadpool joined The Secret Defenders, a group that included Luke Cage (who just went by “Cage” at the time), Dr. Druid, and Shadowoman. Yes, with one “w.” The book was written by future Marvel editor Tom Brevoort and drawn by Gerald DeCaire, and let’s just say there’s a reason you’ve never heard of Mr. DeCaire. Ugh.
