Next »

In this feature we spotlight the various characters, phrases, objects or events that eventually became notable parts of comic lore, like the first time someone said, “Avengers Assemble!” or the first appearance of Batman’s giant penny or the first appearance of Alfred Pennyworth or the first time Spider-Man’s face was shown half-Spidey/half-Peter. Stuff like that. Here is an archive of all the When We First Met features so far! Check ‘em out!

With Deadpool’s new movie debuting this weekend, I thought it would be fun to show you all the first comic book appearances of the various characters in the film…

Deadpool debuted in New Mutants #98 by Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza…

the movie’s awesome.

I never noticed before, but in addition to the spot on her eye, Domino’s only got a slit on that side, no eyeball.

Interestingly, the original drafts apparently had Wyre, Garrison Kane, and Sluggo as Ajax’s henchmen instead of Angel Dust. It seems they all got cut because they required too much CGI, while Angel Dust’s super strength is really cheap to do onscreen.

Negasonic Teenage Warhead was originally Cannonball in the early drafts, which I’m guessing is why she seems to have energy powers in this movie instead of telepathy.

There was a Morlocks miniseries? By Geoff Johns? Whaaaaa?

Negasonic Teenage Warhead is in the Deadpool movie? As if I needed another reason to see it….

I just hope that means Monster Magnet is on the soundtrack!

I never understood why the one woman was called Blind Alfred. There seemed to be times when it looked like she was drawn looking like a guy as well, which further confused me. Was it just a play on Batman’s butler, or was there more to it?

No Herbert?

That Morlocks mini seemed to be out of continuity but I think some of the characters stuck around anyway. There’s an article in there somewhere, I’m sure.

“Negasonic Teenage Warhead” is just so Morrison late 90’s early 2000s “COOLZ” that I really hate it as a name.

“Negasonic Teenage Warhead” is the name of a Monster Magnet song, Grant Morrison likes making references to whatever he is listening to at the time.

I’m not really sure how referencing a pop song is “COOLZ” and offensive*, but then again I’ve never understood any of the so-called arguments certain complainers have about Morrison.

*Except that one issue of The Invisibles where he had King Mob listening to Kula Shaker. F*ck Kula Shaker, even 20 years later.

Well, Monster Magnet is/was a group that was big Marvel fans. IIRC, they have a song about Ego the Living Planet, and I believe Brian did a CBLR about how Frank Miller featured an early version of the band in … Spectacular Spider Man, maybe?

Again, I hope that song is on the DP soundtrack. It probably isn’t, because “I will deny you baby!”

The Morlocks series was originally out of continuity, as far as I remember. It was during that period when Marvel was publishing a lot of weird X-related stuff… but of course the series got folded into continuity along the way with a few characters showing up here and there.
