Though already wildly popular with comic fans, Deadpool rose to superstardom with the release of his first feature-length film, which was just good enough to make up for his catastrophe of an appearance in X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE. The Deadpool movie saw immense success at the box office, which likely contributed to the jaw-dropping line in front of Deadpool creator Fabian Nicieza’s booth at C2E2. READ: New to DEADPOOL? Check out this handy guide we put together to get you started! The line of people eagerly waiting to have DEADPOOL and X-FORCE comics signed by Nicieza extended all the way from his booth to the amorphous mass of people, chairs, and tables that made up one of the convention’s smaller food courts. However, as the first day of the convention was winding down and the staff of McCormick Place was ushering attendees off of the convention floor, I was lucky enough to catch Fabian at what I can only assume was one of his only free moments at this year’s C2E2. During our interview, Fabian and I discuss the role that music plays in his writing process, the directions in which different writers have taken the character he created, and the projects that he is currently working on. I was also able to ask Fabian a handful of questions that had been eating at me regarding Deadpool’s gender, sexuality, and mental state. The internet contains a wealth of fan speculation regarding these questions, but I had yet to find a definitive answer to any of them. This was definitely one of the weekend’s most amusing interviews. I could barely get through the interview without cracking up! But what else would you expect from the man who had a hand in creating the only Marvel character with more quips than Spidey himself?
