Welcome to Crossovers We Want to See, a fairly self-explanatory recurring feature in which we pitch the meeting of a pair of characters or teams from different comic companies. Playing editor, we'll dream up writer and artist combinations and basic story points.
"Savage Dragon & Deadpool"
Written by Erik Larsen, drawn by Rob Liefeld
Deadpool has teamed up with some pretty interesting characters over the years, especially in Deadpool Team-Up, but we can think of no one better for him to run afoul of than Erik Larsen's Savage Dragon. Both characters are tough as hell, can regenerate and always have an entertaining way of dispatching their enemies. We'd place this story in an alternate universe and throw literally every enemy both characters has ever faced and just watch our heroes tear through them. It would be epic, no doubt.
Adding to the story's epic nature would be the combined efforts of creators and former Image partners Erik Larsen and Rob Liefeld. In our perfect world, the pair would switch up art chores. Just imagine how cool Liefled's take on Dragon villains like Cyberface, Overlord and other members of the Vicious Circle gang or Larsen trying his hand at Deadpool, Ajax, Black Swan and others. The world needs more insane, high energy comic books filled with people in funny costumes getting their heads chopped off or smashed by giant green hands. If you're curious how both these characters are doing today, Savage Dragon's Emperor Dragon storyline wrapped up with this week's #169 while Deadpool has not one but three books that came out this week: Deadpool Corps #11, Deadpool #33 and Deadpool Team-Up #884.
