Deadpool Creator Says The Merc Would Beat Boba Fett In A Fight


Anyone who’s familiar with the popular YouTube channel Epic Rap Battles of History can decide for themselves whether Boba Fett has beaten the Merc with a Mouth in the realm of spitting rhymes, but Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld seems confident that his own character would come out on top in physical combat.

The writer and comic book artist pleaded his case for Wade Wilson in this hypothetical smackdown during an interview with The Star Wars Show, saying the following:

“Oh my gosh, okay, one of the greatest fights you’d ever see, right? But you can’t beat Deadpool. You just can’t. I stole Wolverine’s healing factor, Marvel let me. I’m like, ‘Hey, can I make that he was part of the Weapon X thing and can he have…yeah, okay, yeah, I can do that? Click.’ There may be this other character, a Caped Crusader, and these guys make some really good fan films and I’m like, ‘Oh, they made one of the Caped Crusader guy versus Deadpool.’ There’s no way that battle ends without Deadpool killing the Caped Crusader. There’s no way. There’s not one instance. I don’t care how smart he is, he does not get one up on [him]. You can’t kill him. You can blow a hole through him and he’ll go, ‘Hey Boba.'”

Liefeld then went on to express his disappointment at how the famed bounty hunter of the Star Wars series eventually met his demise in the original movies, while also hinting at the parallels between Boba and the Merc with a Mouth.

“In New Mutants #98, Deadpool is Boba Fett, Cable is Han Solo, and Deadpool mentions that he’s working for a benefactor named Tolliver and Tolliver’s Jabba the Hutt,” Liefeld pointed out. “I wore everything on my sleeve. Jabba the Hutt hired Boba Fett to get Han Solo, except you’re called Deadpool, Cable, and Tolliver. I love Boba Fett, but, I’m not gonna lie to you, teenage Rob Liefeld, Return of the Jedi, when he got knocked off the platform into the Sarlaac, I was like, ‘What? I invested all that time and all those mail-aways?’ Not his finest moment. That is weak, what are you doing to my favorite character?”
