Comic Con 2015: We interview Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld!

07.12.2015

It's not every day that you get to meet your childhood heroes and even when you do there's always the fear that it may somehow tarnish the respect you had for them as a kid. Sometimes that one encounter can ruin everything. Fortunately, in the case of Rob Liefeld, the creator of DEADPOOL, that was not the case. As someone who has read weekly comics for nearly three decades, I can remember the excitement and impact that Rob Liefeld had on the industry when he took over New Mutants and then X-Force in the '90's. Liefeld's unique style is an undeniable influence on the medium of comics and now his signature character, DEADPOOL, is gearing up to hit theaters in 2016 with star Ryan Reynolds starring in the role he was born to play.

I caught up with Rob at Comic Con and we had a long, interesting, and insightful chat about DEADPOOL, his origins, his influence, the journey of the film getting made, trying to unlock the character on LEGO Marvel, and so much more. It's a long, compelling conversation and proof that sometimes meeting your childhood heroes can really pay off.

You guys, Liefeld created the Deadpool name and the character concept, while Nicieza created his personality and his Wade Wilson name. Sheesh. I know Liefeld is a not so talented artist, but I just don't get all the hate he got.

Creator?

Why does this article refer to Liefeld as the creator? Fabian Nicieza co-created most of the X-Force and Deadpool characters. And seriously, the writer does most of the work with characters, not the (very crappy) artist.

But he's not wrong though, he did create the visual of the character and it's the artist's job to actually bring the character to life from a written manuscript. Sure his art style never improves, but that's besides the point. He is still one of the original creator of Deadpool and he contributed a lot to how the character became as popular as it is today.

Hey, you think it's easy to add 25 pouches to one character and draw hands and feet improperly?

Rob does.
