* PopularityPower: Acknowledged by Dreadpool as the reason why [[spoiler:Wolverine]] would keep coming back no matter what he tried. Also, a pretty big motivator in the series itself.
* PowerCreepPowerSeep: As with [[ComicBook/ThePunisherKillsTheMarvelUniverse its predecessor,]] about half the things Dreadpool uses on his targets should have either failed, done nowhere near lethal damage, or been stopped before they started. He also manages to heal back from things like head explosion or dismemberment in a way that 616 Deadpool has never done.

* ContinuitySnarl: ''Again'' is [[spoiler: a StealthPrequel to ''Old Man Logan'', but the LastStand of several heroes is entirely different from what is shown in Old Man Logan's own series. For instance, Deadpool kills Thor (Jane Foster) by turning her into stone, when in OML Thor (Odninson) was killed by Magneto and Absorbing Man. Daredevil and Punisher died by She-Hulk's side in issue 8 of OML ongoing, but their death's at Deadpool's hands here are complettely different.]]

Issue 5 complicates matters further by killing almost all of the villains as well.]]



* RecycledPremise: ''Again'' retains the basic plot of Deadpool killing the heroes of the Marvel Universe, but with a radically different story crafted around it. Ironically, said story recycles the basic premise of the backstory from [[spoiler:''ComicBook/OldManLogan'', with the Red Skull assembling a group of villains as part of a plot to kill all of the heroes]]. Ultimately, this is actually averted as [[spoiler:it's not a recycled premise, but a ''prequel'' to ''Old Man Logan'' as Deadpool discovers the dead bodies of the X-Men and sees that he didn't kill them -- ''Wolverine did''.]]

* AmbiguousEnding: the ending of ''Again.'' [[spoiler: Deadpool successfully kills all of the villains in his way and murders the Red Skull to avenge the heroes... only for the Red Skull's decapitated head to mock him, explaining that Deadpool's mind has been so fractured by this point that there's no way for him to distinguish reality from fantasy anymore. His RoaringRampageOfRevenge ''could'' have happened, or it could not have; there's no way for Deadpool to tell anymore.]]
