Marvel Comics and Ex-President Zombies

DeadpoolMarvel Comics and Ex-President Zombies . . .yes, you read that correctly.

While, I’m not a follower of the Marvel Comics in the paper format that you can pick-up for $2.99, like many of you I am familiar with the Marvel characters that have turned into movies (Iron Man, Avengers, Captain America, you get the idea).

My American History magazine for April 2013 included a blurb titled “Marvel Unleashes Zombie Presidents” and curiosity took over. I scoped out the Marvel.com site and found the series which stars ‘Deadpool’. Deadpool takes on Washington, Teddy Roosevelt, Nixon, Lincoln, and Reagan, just to name a few.

 I wanted to share this because it was so interesting to me because of the unique twist on historical icons in such a strange context. I’ll have to pick up one of these Deadpool vs. the dead president issues and check it out for myself.

If you have, let me know.
