Everybody’s got Deadpool-mania! His new film just broke box office records for an R-rated release… unprecedented for a comic book character less than 30 years old!

To find out how the wise-crackin’, fourth-wall-breakin’, merc-with-a-mouth got to be so popular, we went back to the first time he broke the mold.

In Deadpool #10 & #11 from 1997, good old Wade Wilson goes back in time to 1967 and invades Amazing Spider-Man #47, taking the place of that goody two shoes Peter Parker.

There’s also this picture of Deadpool as Forrest Gump, and we can’t figure out why! It’s pop-culture references galore in this week’s episode of SOMFRC!

All around me are the Batman’s cases: Joker chases, makeup faces.

Harley Quinn just wants the Joker’s embraces. Plays her Aces, schemes take places.

And this comic’s kinda funny, this comic’s kinda sad.

The panels where she’s dreaming are the best I’ve ever had.

We liked Paul Dini’s writing. And Bruce Timm’s art was great.

Like the animated series, it’s a very very… Mad Love.
