->''What if everything you thought was funny about Deadpool was actually just disturbing? What if he decided to kill everyone and everything that makes up the Marvel Universe? What if he actually pulled it off? Would that be '''FUN''' for you?.''

A four-part {{elseworld}} story in which an alternate version of SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}}, caught by the X-Men, is taken to Ravenscroft Asylum and put under the care of a psychiatrist named Dr. Benjamin Brighton. But, unknown to the heroes, Benjamin Brighton is in reality the microverse villain Psycho-Man in disguise, who is using his position to break the villains under his care so he can shape them into his own private army.

Unfortunately, [[GoneHorriblyRight his process works all too well]] and Deadpool loses the wacky voices in his head, only for them to be replaced by a single new one in a crimson box, a bloodthirsty one that sends him on a new one-man war against the Marvel Universe. And in this war, no one is safe.

[[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou No one.]]

The series spawned two sequels. ''Deadpool Killustrated'' follows the same version of Deadpool after murdering his way through dozens of alternate Marvel universes. He decided to go a little deeper and start hunting down the classics of literature: Dracula, Tom Sawyer, Moby Dick, Captain Ahab, and more. After that, there's ''Deadpool Kills Deadpool'', in which this version, which we're calling "Dreadpool") hunts down the other versions of Deadpool, including the Deadpool Corps versions.

----
!!''Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe'' provides examples of:

* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler:the fate of anyone inside Dreadpool's anti-regeneration traps.]]
* AnyoneCanDie: Spider-Man, the ComicBook/FantasticFour, [[spoiler:The Watcher, the creative team at Marvel]].
* ArtisticLicense: Even for the series' rather loose standards. When the Punisher goes after Deadpool, he has the barrel of his rifle sticking several feet out the window. As the film ''{{Shooter}}'' pointed out, this is a ''really'' bad idea, given that it's much more visible, and increases the risk of light off the scope being seen. Which, in fact, we actually see happening. This is not a mistake an experienced veteran Force Recon Marine - which both Frank and Swagger are - would do.
* BadassCrew: In the sequel, a team is gathered by [[spoiler:Sherlock Holmes consisting of [[TheWatson Doctor Watson]], {{Beowulf}}, [[ActionGirl Hua Mulan]], and [[Literature/TheLeatherstockingTales Natty Bumppo]]]] to combat Dreadpool. In the third sequel, we have Deadpool, Lady Deadpool, Pulppool, Pandapool, and the Deadpool Watcher.
* BearsAreBadNews: Subverted with Pandapool.
* ColdBloodedTorture: The lucky ones are the ones Dreadpool straight up kills.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Dreadpool exploits his knowledge of the Marvel Universe to its most deadly.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: For [[spoiler:Taskmaster]], he was doing the job for the money... [[spoiler:Until he sees that Dreadpool has killed the PowerPack.]]
* {{Fanboy}}: One version of The Watcher who observes the many Deadpools is very fond of them.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Resident ButtMonkey Deadpool goes from a [[BreakingTheFourthWall forth wall breaking]] joker to the most deadly person in the universe.
* GoMadFromTheRevelation: Happens to [[spoiler: Xavier]] when he tries probing Dreadpool's mind.
* GoneHorriblyRight: Psycho-Man wanted to make me a more efficient killer. And he succeeded.
* HeroKiller: And villain killer, and anti-hero killer... Agh, Dreadpool's just killin' damn near EVERYBODY here! Dubya Tee Eff, man?!
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Xavier thought it was a good idea to put Dreadpool in the Ravenscroft Asylum under Dr. Brighton. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Real smart, baldy.]]
* HorrifyingTheHorror: Psychotic madman Arcade is reduced to a whimpering mass of tears after seeing what Dreadpool had him build.
* ImAHumanitarian: Well, insomuch as [[spoiler:a voice in your head can be, as the new voice implies it ate the previous two.]]
* InfantImmortality:
** Subverted by [[spoiler:the deaths of the Power Pack, though they're off-screen.]]
** And subverted ''again'' with [[spoiler:TomSawyer]] in ''Killustrated''.
* ItsPersonal: After being hired by loved ones of the deceased to kill Dreadpool, [[spoiler:Taskmaster claims this after finding out that Dreadpool has killed PowerPack, a group of kids.]] For the original Deadpool, it's when Dogpool was killed.
* KillEmAll: Dreadpool's plan. And [[spoiler: [[OmnicidalManiac not just in the Marvel Universe either.]]]]
* [[LastManStanding Last Deadpool Standing]]: [[spoiler:The Original Deadpool]]. DEADPOOL REPRESENT!
* OffWithYourHead: [[spoiler:Deadpool]] decapitates [[spoiler:Dreadpool]] in issue #4 of Deadpool Kills Deadpool.
* PopularityPower: Acknowledged by Dreadpool as the reason why [[spoiler:Wolverine]] would keep coming back no matter what he tried.
* PyrrhicVictory: [[spoiler:Sherlock Holmes eventually defeats Dreadpool in ''Killustrated'', but by that point fiction had been warped into full control of the AnyoneCanDie and KillThemAll tropes as he wished.]]
* RetGone: In ''Killustrated'', Dreadpool's murder of characters from literature destroys all versions of those who have been inspired by them.
* ShoutOut: When he kills [[spoiler:ThePunisher]], he acknowledges that this is usually [[Comicbook/MarvelUniverseVsThePunisher his thing]].
* StrawNihilist: Dreadpool's entire motive is that freedom from the horror of being a comic book character is enough to justify [[KillEmAll everything]].
* TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou: The miniseries ends with [[spoiler:Dreadpool planning on killing the creative team working on the comic, and promising to come after the reader next. Ironically, it's right when they're planning how Deadpool will show up and kill the versions of them in the comic. Somehow, they completely fail to notice the man in red and black standing feet away as he talks to the audience.]]
* TookALevelInBadass: The sisters of LittleWomen manage to force Dreadpool to use a weapon he planned to use against stronger opponents.
* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: Dreadpool's solution to [[spoiler: Spider-Man]].
