The battle between DC’s ‘The Terminator’ and Marvel’s ‘Merc with a Mouth’ will surely be a close fought one. What makes it closer is that Deadpool was adapted from Deathstroke and hence the similarities between them are actually quite remarkable. So let’s get into the arena and find out if the “adapted one” can actually beat up the “original”.

Name: Slade Wilson, Deathstroke the Terminator
Affiliations: No known affiliations
Background: A former Lt. Colonel in the US Army, he was chosen for a special army experiment which he willingly agreed to. The experiment initially left him powerless and crippled, but later it enhanced his body’s powers and made him a force to be reckoned with.

He became a mercenary but kept his identity as a secret like superheroes. During a mission he got his son kidnapped. Though he later rescued his son, his wife was angry and shot him, wounding his right eye. Ever since then he wears a featureless mask to hide his right eye. He was hired to kill and capture Teen Titans and has been their enemy since.

VS

Name: Wade Winston Wilson, Deadpool (Look at the similarity in the name as well)
Affiliations: Initially a villain in New Mutants, he soon appeared as a mercenary who changed sides quite often depending on who pays him more money. He has appeared in Avengers and is now a part of X-Men. He was also a part of the Heroes for Hire team.
Background : Losing his parents at an early age, Wade enrolled in the US Military Special Forces. He was consequently kicked out due to disciplinary actions. He became a mercenary but killed only those people who he felt deserved to die. Later he became a part of Department K which promised to cure him when he was diagnosed with cancer. Being a test subject his cancer was subdued via the healing factor derived from Wolverine, but this was just temporary. Later in the hospice, when the sadistic assistant Ajax tried to kill him by pulling out his heart, his healing factor suddenly jumpstarted and regenerated his heart, although it did not not cure his other body scars. He moved out of the hospice and now serves as a mercenary.

LET THE FIGHT BEGIN !!!

Skill:
Deadpool attacks with his semi-automatic pistols and his dual swords strapped to his back. He also has an M82A1 Sniper rifle to take out targets from a distance. As he was a part of the US Military Special Forces, Deadpool knows a variety of martial arts and is an expert swordsman and marksman.

Deathstroke uses similar weapons as Deadpool with the only exception being the Power Staff/Energy Lance. This power staff is basically a fighting staff augmented with the addition of ballistic weaponry. Deathstroke uses the Promethian sword instead of the twin blades used by Deadpool. He carries a flash bomb in his armour which is capable of blinding even the legendary Justice League.

Deathstroke’s enhanced strength makes Deadpool’s argument pretty weak when comparing the two. Though the healing factor serum gave some amount of strength to Deadpool it is nothing when compared to the power that Deathstroke commands. Deadpool’s fighting style is hit and evade rather than the standard hit and block. In fact Deadpool is often seen carrying a number of teleportation devices to help his cause.

The edge in this round goes to Deathstroke for his super enhanced strength and better (and more lethal) weapons.

  • Deathstroke – 75/100
  • Deadpool – 60/100

Intellect:
Deathstroke is actually considered the greatest strategist in the DC universe (beating even Batman) and is always able to anticipate the opponent’s move beforehand due to his extremely sharp reflexes. He has the capability to use 90% of his brain which is 9 times more than what an average human can. He has to his credit the feat of single-handedly defeating the entire Justice League of America roster and vanquishing the meta humans. Deathstroke wins this round hands down as his intellect is far more superior than Deadpool’s.

  • Deathstroke –90/100
  • Deadpool – 70 /100

Armour:
Deathstroke wears a thick woven, Kevlar and chain link mail which can stop bullets from small firearms. The Promethium mesh layering also protects him from conventional injury. Deadpool wears clothed red and black armour and relies far more on his superior regenerative healing to aid him during the battles rather than armour.

Deathstroke wins this round as he actually has some real armour…

  • Deathstroke – 55/100
  • Deadpool – 30/100

Special Abilities:
As both these lab rats are genetically mutated they have a large number of special powers, but we will look at only the major ones.

Deadpool

  • Superhuman Reflexes
  • Superhuman Agility
  • Telepathic Immunity
  • Extended Longevity
  • Regenerative Healing Factor – As understood this allows him to regenerate and heal faster than normal human beings, but to regenerate an extra heart is something tremendous. He has once even fought and won a battle with a sword stuck to his brain. Also unlike Wolverine’s natural healing factor, Deadpool can mentally control his healing factor.

Deathstroke

  • Enhanced Mind and Senses
  • Enhanced Strength
  • Enhanced Immunity
  • Retard Aging
  • Regenerative Healing Factor – Deathstroke’s body can endure lots of pain before actually going down. He can shake off gunshot wounds and stabs and even deadly poisons.

This round goes too…

  • Deathstroke – 60/100
  • Deadpool – 90/100

RESULT

This battle goes to…

DEATHSTROKE

I guess Deadpool’s advantage of the regenerative healing factor and his ability to teleport wouldn’t be as effective when he is up against a master tactician and strategist like Deathstroke. Well tough luck Deadpool even though your sense of humour in the comics is very much appreciated.

  • Deathstroke – 280/400
  • Deadpool – 250/400

Did you catch the plane crash on Grey’s Anatomy last Thursday? How about 2 Broke Girls meeting Martha Stewart? Did you witness House‘s struggle in a burning building? Will you be watching tonight as the Glee kids graduate from High School? As you might have noticed, the current TV season is quickly coming to a close. This gives you the perfect opportunity to take a look at your television package.

Do you have Cable, direct tv, Dish, or do you get all of your television via the web? What or how is the best way to get your television fix? How much are you spending or how much are you comfortable spending. Personally, I use Cable and have been using it for years. I have quickly been getting discouraged as my price seems to go up and up with nothing I can do about keeping it down.

How would my package compare to dx3 direct tv? Well, let me take a look. I spend approximately 100 bucks for my service and I get two premium channels. The price scale on www.dx3.net stars at 29.99 for the Entertainment package and goes up to 44.99 for the Choice Ultimate package (both deals for 12 months).  Entertainment package comes with 140 channels, which is about what I have now minus the premium channels, while Choice Ultimate package has 225 channels with 11 extra movie channels and free premium channels for 3 months. The Choice Ultimate has a lot of bang for the buck.  Direct TV has other options and features including (but not limited to) NFL Sunday Ticket and On Demand. Check out one of the links above to learn more about Direct TV and if it is right for your TV viewing habits!
