Deadpool Makes it On To Charlotte’s Black Lives Matter Street Art

In numerous cities, “Black Lives Matter” is being painted on streets in massive letters showing their support for the cause. Some cities are taking it further allowing artists to allow their creativity flow in a letter. That’s resulted in some really interesting results. In Charlotte, North Carolina, Marvel‘s Deadpool made it into the “K” courtesy of artist Garrison Gist.

The art was done as a metaphor for the generation currently fighting injustice. Gist, the artist behind the letter, felt the character goes against the norms and embodies the spirit of those seeking justice and change. The choice was also made because Deadpool is pansexual and it is Pride month making the decision even clearer. You can hear it from Garrison below.

The art for the full statement was done by a collective of artists in the city with beautiful results which you can see below:

Valiant Hero Of The Week: It’s The Eternal Warrior vs. Wolverine, Deadpool, and Captain America!

Valiant Hero of the Week

Every Monday for the next few weeks, Valiant Entertainment is running a poll on their Twitter feed to provide fans with some escapism while new comics are in short supply. The poll allows Valiant fans the opportunity to select the Hero Of The Week from four choices – this past week, the poll featured Ninjak, Punk Mambo, Doctor Mirage and the Eternal Warrior. That week’s hero will then be the focus of free pdfs featuring the character, videos from Valiant staff, giveaways and more.

The Eternal Warrior won the poll this week, which was an excellent excuse to take a look at how Valiant’s resident immortal would fare against characters from Marvel who fall roughly within his power level and skill set based on a random first encounter (much like Batman, if you give Gilad a chance to prepare he can punch far above his weight when it comes to his adversaries).

Who is the Eternal Warrior?

Eternal Warrior

An immortal warrior who is bound to defend the Geomancers – those who speak for the earth. Gilad Anni-Padda is thousands of years old, and has the combat experience that time and practice bring. An expert tactician and weapons master, Gilad also has enchanced strength, durability, stamina and a restorative healing ability that can repair critical injuries in a matter of days.

Although if Gilad takes enough damage he can die, he will always return to a fully healed body – but he can take a lot of damage; he is used to being impaled, cut, stabbed shot and burned. He can take and ignore a lot of damage and pain.

In terms of weaponry, Gilad has most recently carried with him an axe, a sword, two revolvers a grenade or two and several explosive charges. Due to the random encounter style of these imaginary fights, I’ll ignore the vast amounts of equipment he could bring to the field.

But the real question (or questions) that we’re all looking forward to answering are whether the Eternal Warrior could defeat…

Wolverine

When it comes to fighting Wolverine, the difference maker is Logan’s skeleton. Eternal Warrior is on par with Logan in terms of speed, is arguably stronger and has thousands of years of combat experience on Logan.

While Gilad doesn’t heal as fast as Wolverine, he his more durable in terms of the punishment his body can take before it needs to heal. If Logan gets shot, the bullet can bounce of his bones, Gilad’s muscles can absorb the bullet. But I can’t see them stopping Wolverine’s adamantium claws.

Wolverine may not carry as much weaponry as the Eternal Warrior tends to, but he doesn’t need to. Between his adamantium and his healing factor, then he leaves Gilad very little chance to effectively stop Wolverine for any real length of time.

At the end of the day, this would come down to who can soak the most damage from their opponent. The Eternal Warrior can take as much as Wolverine, but doesn’t heal as fast (the caveat here is that depending on the writer, we’ve seen both men take and walk away from a lot of punishment; it’s not unheard of for Gilad to allow himself to lose body parts to win, or to die just to learn his opponents tactics). No matter what happens in this fight, it would more than likely come down to the smallest of things between these two; does Wolverine break the Eternal Warrior’s axe and sword before they end up doing severe damage? Can the Eternal Warrior avoid the claws long enough to sever Logan’s femoral or carotid artery?

Ultimately, f it wasn’t for Wolverine’s adamantium skeleton, then I’d say there’s no way that he’d be able to stand against the Eternal Warrior for long, but as it is I think it’s slightly more likely that Wolverine walks away victorious, but severely wounded.

Deadpool

Deadpool verses the Eternal Warrior would be a fantastic thing to see, but I think that it would result in Valiant’s immortal guardian leaving pieces of Wade Wilson in the dirt.

In terms of fighting ability, Gilad’s experience would trump Deadpool’s skill, and their weaponry would be fairly similar (depending on which version of Deadpool we’re looking at). As we saw with Wolverine above, the Eternal Warrior’s ability to heal from wounds would come at a distant second to Deadpool – but Gilad’s body is much hard to damage than Wade’s. Does Deadpool have the ability to stand toe to toe with Gilad in a fight? Absolutely. But I think that the difference here will be in their attitudes. The Eternal Warrior won’t spend as much time talking as he will trying to kill Deadpool, and Deadpool may not take his opponent as seriously.

Or, he’ll be too busy trying to distract the Eternal Warrior with some fourth wall breaking quips as his body starts to lose pieces.

When the dust settles, the Eternal Warrior will be walking away with half a sword impaled within him as Deadpool’s head laugh’s at the absurdity of the fight.

Captain America

If Captain America can disarm the Eternal Warrior then he stands a chance. Weaponless, the two men would be on fairly equal footing in terms of physical strength and stamina.

Now whether Captain America talks Gilad into an unarmed combat or he’s able to use his shield to knock away the axe and sword that’ll probably be down to the writer’s discretion (if it was me, I’d say that Cap would be able to disarm Gilad, but would likely lose his shield in the process).

At this point it’d be a first fight. We know Cap will never back down, and that he can go all day, but so can the Eternal Warrior.

Whether it’s hours or days, Gilad will eventually over come Captain America.

Valiant Hero Of The Week: It’s The Eternal Warrior vs. Batman, Deathstroke, and Vandal Savage!

But the real question (or questions) that we’re all looking forward to answering are whether the Eternal Warrior could defeat…

Batman

I was thinking that Batman would be at a disadvantage right from the offset, but it’s not like Batman hasn’t come across somebody stronger and physically tougher than him before and come out on top without any time to plan ahead. Only this time, he’d be coming up against a man every bit as skilled as he.

Does the Dark Knight have enough equipment on him to defeat Gilad? Maybe, but it’d be a very close thing. Batman can’t out fight or outlast the Eternal Warrior, and he’d have a much harder time hurting him then Gilad would hurting Batman. The question really comes down to whether Batman can figure out how to take his opponent down with what he has on him and how he employs it. Will the Dark Knight underestimate the Eternal Warrior?

Will the Eternal Warrior leave Batman alive when the dust has settled? One thing’s for sure – if Batman loses the first encounter, and survives, then he’d be more likely to win the second once he knows who and what he’s up against.

I think that it’s more likely Batman will win the rematch than he will the first encounter given how they match up.

Deathstroke

Probably the most interesting match-up in terms of ability and equipment in a random encounter, the Eternal Warrior verses Deathstroke would be a fantastic fight to read in a comic book. Breaking it down, their strength, speed, endurance and stamina are very at very comparable levels. Deathstroke does seem to heal at a faster rate than Gilad, but the Eternal Warrior is a bit more durable than DC’s antihero.

Deathstroke is a highly skilled and deadly combatant, but the Eternal Warrior has him beat in terms of experience and ability. If it was two men facing off with swords and a couple of pistols, then I wouldn’t hesitate to give the nod to the Eternal Warrior. He’s beaten faster and stronger opponents than Deathstroke before by relying on his ability to read their style (thousands of years of combat does tend to give one an edge).

But with all things being as equal as they are, I think that Deathstroke’s Ikon suit would give him an edge. Could Eternal Warrior break through it? Maybe, but I think that the suit adds just enough of an advantage to for Deathstroke so that the scales would tip in his favour.

Vandal Savage

Valiant’s immortal hero verses DC’s immortal villain. It’d be a fight that could last for a long time, and if it was a comic book it could span thousands of years as the two face off across the years. But in a random encounter? I think that the Eternal Warrior is more likely capable of doing more serious damage to Vandal Savage in a random encounter based on what you see Savage typically carry, and the Eternal Warrior’s tendency to take any advantage he can.

When it comes to two skilled fighters going at each other, one unarmed and one not, then I think the outcome is heavily weighted in the favour of the man with the axe and sword. Despite the two being immortal, and despite neither one being able to stay dead, I think that the Eternal Warrior would stumble away victorious from the fight, leaving the pieces of Vandal Savage to regroup.
