What’s hotter than the hottest Marvel book from the hottest Marvel movie? Buzz’s boss knows …

Deadpool-New-Mutants-98-Original-ArtDeadpool‘s $150 million showing at the box office this past weekend was a landmark moment for both R-rated movies and a potential game-changer for comic book films, too.

DeadpoolIt set box-office records for its rating, records for its studio, records for its time of year and a few other fronts … and it all started for the character 15 years ago this month as The New Mutants was a Marvel Comics series that was winding down. Deadpool debuted in issue 98, which was called “The Beginning of the End Part 1” — the title’s final issue was just two months away.

The duo that created Deadpool was artist-writer Rob Liefeld and writer Fabian Nicieza — and their work was seen by many readers that month but many, many more when X-Force No. 1 arrived a few months later.

Buzz Movie Trailer Vote: Deadpool (opens Feb. 12)

DeadpoolUp next on the comic book movie hit list is Deadpool, a Marvel-inspired creation arriving on Feb. 12 that you’ve already probably seen a commercial for a few times here and there. (As long as you have a pulse … or a TV.)

NewMutants98Deadpool is a wise-ass who arrived in the Marvel universe in February 1991 via The New Mutants No. 98. That $1 book will cost you more now but the Rob Liefeld creation has many other appearances out there for fans to chase in all those years since.

His second appearance comes in X-Force No. 2 — everybody has X-Force, right? (Even Buzz has at least a dozen No. 2’s in storage somewhere to go with 30-some first issues … )

Since we’re close to the arrival, Buzz figured it was time for a vote — check out the latest trailer below and then tell us what you’ll do.
