Marvel VS DC! It's the Merc with a Mouth against the Terminator! Whose killing skills outmatch the other? The copycat or the original?
Tagline

Deadpool VS Deathstroke is the 39th episode of Death Battle, featuring Deadpool from Marvel Comics and Deathstroke from DC Comics in a battle between regenerative comic book mercenaries. Deadpool was voiced by Curtis Arnott and Deathstroke was voiced by Jason Marnocha.

Interlude

Wiz: They say imitation is the highest form of flattery, but sometimes it's nothing but a slap in the face. Such as the case when it comes to these two masked mercenaries.

Boomstick: Deadpool, the Merc with a Mouth.

Wiz: And Deathstroke, the Terminator.

Boomstick: He's Wiz and I'm Boomstick.

Wiz: And it's our job to analyze their weapons, armor, and skills to find out who would win... a Death Battle.

Boomstick: You see him on T-Shirts, Internet memes, and EVERYWHERE you look at nerd conventions.

Wiz: But the story behind this popular anti-hero isn't as lighthearted as his joking nature would lead you to believe.

Wade Goes to Work

Wiz: Wade Winston Wilson was a globetrotting mercenary looking for his chance to become the world's next greatest superhero. Then he was diagnosed with cancer, which hit him like a flaming semi-truck falling on his face.

Boomstick: That's... oddly specific.

Wiz: Facing the inevitability of death, Wade gave up. He abandoned his heroic dreams, stopped his chemo treatments, and dumped his girlfriend to free her from the burden of a man doomed to die.

Boomstick: Doomed, until he was offered a cure by Department K, the special weapons development division of the strange, alien world called... Canada.

Boomstick: And by cure, I mean he actually was handed over to the Weapon X program, the same guys who gave Wolverine's bones the old chrome dip. They injected Wade with Wolvie's healing factor.

Wiz: Which I don't even know if that's possible. Do they have like a spare jar of "Essence of Wolverine" or something?

Boomstick: With the ability to heal from anything, his body became a surgical playground for Doctor Killbrew and his assistant, Ajax. Just like Operation, only constantly hitting the sides.

A buzzer sound is heard.

Boomstick: But hey, at least he doesn't have cancer anymore.

Wiz: Well, actually, he still does. His cells just regenerate faster than the cancer can kill him. Beneath the red and black spandex, he's basically a giant walking tumor, which can talk... a lot.

The screen shows Wade's real face, horribly disfigured.

Boomstick: (panicked) AH! KILL IT WITH FIRE! Oh wait, we can't.

Wiz: Meanwhile, among Killebrew's other prisoners, a gambling ring was formed. Patients would place bets on each other's survival under the knife.

Boomstick: And these bets were placed of what they called "The Deadpool". ...Get it? 'Cause it's kinda where his name comes from? Oh, you'll see.

Wiz: Unfortunately for Killbrew, Wade had somehow gotten superhuman strength, speed, and stamina. Because I guess they got a jar filled with that shit, too. He used these skills to kill Ajax and make a dramatic escape. Free at last, his fellow inmates inspired him to take on his now famous namesake...

Boomstick: Deadpool-

Deadpool enters in, interrupting Boomstick's last sentence.

Deadpool: DEADPOOOOOL~, yeah!

Boomstick: What the heck?

Deadpool: (chuckles) Oh ho, I'm sorry! Please continue talking about how great I am.

Wiz: I was afraid of this. See, Deadpool somehow possess a unique awareness of whatever media he's in. Whether there be comic books, games, TV shows, or an awesome Internet show.

Boomstick: Huh in the what now?

Wiz: Basically, he's a pro at shattering the fourth wall.

Deadpool: Bingo! Oh hey, Boomstick! Tell your ex-wife I said hello~. ["Come Hither" Growl]

Boomstick: You've got five seconds to get the hell out of here before I blow your head off.

Wiz: Unfortunately, all that would do is piss him off. Bad idea, as Deadpool is a master martial artist, seasoned assassin, and a raging sex machine— What?

Deadpool: Yeah, I noticed that you left a few things in the script, so I made some changes. You know, just the important stuff. Like mah' penis!

Boomstick: Well, if by raging sex machine, he means getting down with a bloated alien, a shape-shifting teenage prostitute, and Death herself, he must have some pretty low standards. That's right, this guy literally tried to stick his dick in Death! Maybe that's why he liked my ex-wife.

Boomstick: But besides his dick, Deadpool has an arsenal of weaponry he can pull out from absolutely nowhere!

Wiz: This is an animation technique commonly called the "Magic Satchel", though its existence as an actual thing is preposterous.

Deadpool: Oh yeah? Watch this!

Deadpool reaches out from the pit of the satchel, similar to a magician pulling a rabbit out of a hat, and pulls out a large elephant, which trumpets.

Wiz: (annoyed) I hate you...

Deadpool: (in the manner of "I love you") Oh, I hate you, too.

Boomstick: Me too. Some of Deadpool's favorite toys include—

Deadpool: My trusty rusty twin katanas, some grenades, my two favorite machine guns, Butter and I Can't Believe It's Not Butter, a teleportation belt, an Infinity Stone that alters continuity...! (giddy) Ohoho I can't choose! I love 'em all!

Boomstick: (peeved) Okay that's it, I'm gonna kill him!

Boomstick charges and aims his shotgun at Deadpool.

Deadpool: La-la-la-la-la-la-la...

Deadpool runs away unscathed, the missed gunfire just shot directly to the screen instead.

Wiz: Combined, Deadpool's weapons and abilities has helped him to accomplish some amazing feats in spite of his illness.

Boomstick: His quick draw's fast enough to beat seven Hydra agents at once. He can decimate legions of armed warriors solo... while talking on the phone. He's the only one to ever outwit Taskmaster, who literally has the power to predict his opponent's moves. And in one instance, he even murdered the ENTIRE Marvel Universe, including the supposedly unkillable Wolverine.

Wiz: He did this with a sword made of Carbonadium, an alloy capable of nullifying healing factors. In other words, he cheated.

Boomstick: He survived skyscrapers collapsing on top of him, having his heart ripped out, his head blown to bits, and even his entire body melted into a puddle.

Wiz: But his regeneration is also responsible for one of his greatest downfalls. This power has trained him to think he's invincible, and has become quite careless in battle.

Boomstick: And that just if his extreme ADHD hasn't already put him into a bind.

Wiz: Yet there are few more deadly than the Regenerating Degenerate. Really, Deadpool finally accomplished his dream of becoming the next great superhero.

Deadpool: Aw, that's sweet of you guys! Wanna see me naked?

Wiz: Wait, what? No, no, no—!

Deadpool shows them his naked frame from the comic, scarring them from the disturbance.

Boomstick: (groaning) Agh, my eyes! Can't... claw them out... fast enough...!

Deadpool: Aaand now you're scarred for life. Let's see my competition.

Deathstroke

Wiz: In the history of the DC universe, there has never existed a more lethal tactician and soldier than Slade Joseph Wilson. After illegally joining the U.S. military at the age of 16, he fought in Korea for years where his skill earned the attention of an experimental serum program and the lovely Captain Adeline Kane.

Boomstick: This is sounding suspiciously like the origin story of Captain America.

Wiz: Slade actually gets the girl.

Boomstick: Oh, never mind! But does he steal cars?

Wiz: Probably. Slade completely mastered every fighting style under Adeline's tutelage in record time.

Wiz: Apparently, this impressed her so much, they were married with a kid on the way in mere months.

Boomstick: Now that's my kind of woman! Oh, you're a badass? No roses! No dates! Let's fight people, get married, and plow!

Boomstick: Feeling pretty fucking great about life, Slade volunteered for an experiment that would help him resist enemy truth serums. Everything went exactly as planned...

Panels of Deathstroke lashing out appear on-screen along with the sounds of screaming and shattering glass.

Boomstick: You'd think these guys would've learned by now.

Wiz: Wouldn't you know it, the injection did not have the effects they were looking for. But instead of ruining his life forever, the experiment accidentally transformed Slade into the deadliest assassin in the world. A Terminator if you will. Which begs the question: What on Earth does the U.S. military think is in truth serums?

Boomstick: Slade rose as a new man known to the world as Deathstroke.

A picture of Deathstroke is shown, but it has a top hat, monocle, mustache, and "LOL!" drawn on it by Deadpool to make fun of his opponent.

Wiz: Really?

Deadpool appears on screen.

Deadpool: Don't forget to like, fav, and subscribe! Whoop, whoo-oo, whoop!

Deadpool then runs off.

Deathstroke's Theme

Boomstick: Deathstroke is nearly superhuman. He can hit harder, run faster, react quick, and push himself longer than an Olympic athlete. Plus, he can use 90% of his brain, unlike the average 10%.

Wiz: Come on, if we really only used 10% of our brains, we'd be about as dumb as sheep!

Boomstick: You're a sheep!

Wiz: What's important here is that Deathstroke's mind can process information nine times more efficiently than an ordinary man. He can think quicker, hear better, and see faster— Goddammit, that's not a real thing!

Boomstick: Ooh! We should put him and Captain America into a staring contest!

Wiz: (groans) He also has a healing factor, which can repair any part of his body... even if his brain is blown to smithereens.

Boomstick: Bringing him back from the dead.

Wiz: Unfortunately, life back home was rough for Slade. His abilities were put to the test when his son was kidnapped by a group of rival mercenaries. Despite a successful rescue, his son lost the ability to speak.

Boomstick: So his ungrateful wife lashed out in rage and Slade was never the same.

Wiz: Literally.

A picture of Adeline pointing a gun at Deathstroke is shown before blacking out with a gunshot sound.

Boomstick: But he's one step closer to his secret dream of becoming a pirate. Question, Wizard: If he has a healing factor, how come he's still missing that eye?

Wiz: Well no one knows, Boomstick, but perhaps not even a healing factor can repair the deepest of emotional wounds.

Boomstick: Oh, that's bullshit!

Wiz: Despite his new lack of depth perception, Deathstroke remained as skilled as ever.

Boomstick: Partially thanks to his favorite gear. I'm talkin' dual machine guns, a sniper rifle, and a super bomb.

Wiz: Which is actually just a glorified flashbang grenade with trace bits of Kryptonite. Guess who that's for?

Deadpool shows up again.

Deadpool: The guy who fought Goku in one of the most biased fanboy videos ever!

Wiz: Shut up, Wade!

Deadpool: Okay, Ben!

Boomstick: This is just getting weird.

Deadpool drops off-screen.

Boomstick: So back to the weapons. Deathstroke prefers his sweet Thundercat-style sword and laser-shooting energy lance. Also, he's got an awesome suit of armor, made up of Kevlar and Nth metal.

Wiz: Oh look! Yet another fictional alloy that's stronger and lighter than titanium! Also, he has armor composed of promethium.

Boomstick: Well, my shirt is made up of "Boomstick-ium". See? I can make up alloys, too, writers.

Wiz: Actually, Boomstick, promethium is a real thing.

Boomstick: Oh, come on!

Wiz: Though in real life, it's a chemical used in atomic batteries to power guided missiles and spacecrafts. But in comic book land, it's not that at all. It can absorb energy, is incredibly strong, and is self-regenerative.

Boomstick: Wait, so his suit has a healing factor, too? So, does like his zipper try and close itself when he wants to take a leak? Because that's horrifying. I mean I remember when I got my junk stuck in the toaster—

Robin vs Slade
by Michael McCuiston

Wiz: WITH his impressive skills and arsenal, Deathstroke has defeated dozens of ninjas at once, survived an exploding nuclear submarine, and took down most of the Justice League by himself.

Boomstick: He's also really good at push-ups.

Shows the footage of Deathstroke in his cell room doing some push-ups.

Wiz: Uh... how many push-ups can he do?

Boomstick: All of them.

Wiz: Despite multiple members of the Justice League agreeing he's the best tactician on the planet, Deathstroke is known for violent outbursts of rage when in extreme pain. Depending on who he's fighting, this can make him even more dangerous.

Boomstick: Deathstroke doesn't just solve problems. He terminates them.


Slade: I am the thing that keeps you up at night.

He picks up a downed Robin.

Slade: The evil that haunts every dark corner of your mind. I will never rest... and neither will you.


Prelude

Wiz: Alright, the combatants are set. Let's end this debate once and for all!

Boomstick: IT'S TIME FOR A DEATH BATTLEEE!!!

Death Battle

The scene starts at the set of traffic lights along with vehicles coming in different directions, the camera then cuts to the bus stop with the poster of Deathstroke with a $5,000,010 bounty, then pans next to the bounty poster of Deadpool's with a $5,000,000 bounty. The two mercenaries are observing the poster of the latter.

Deadpool: PFFT! What a rip! Seriously, what makes this chump worth 10 bucks more than me? C'mon! I'm me! (chuckles) What!? Am I right?

Deathstroke doesn't respond.

Deadpool: Yeah, I am. I'm pretty sure.

Deadpool and Deathstroke realize they are next to each other and somersault backwards.

Deathstroke: It's your lucky day. (pulls out his machine guns) I can show you.

Deadpool: Oh, boy! A show? (pulls out his machine guns) Can I get popcorn first? I hope they have salt and pepper shakers. I love them to be tasty.

Fight season 2

Deadpool: (taking place of the announcer) FIGHT!

Both combatants shoot at each other, with their Machine Guns deflecting each one of their bullets.

Deadpool: BANG! BANG! BANG! B-B-B-BANG!

In slow motion at Deadpool's side comes five bullets, and came another from Deathstroke's side, bouncing off in opposite sides, then it switches to normal speed, where they keep on firing until both combatants run out of ammo.

Deadpool: Uh oh!

Deadpool drops his machine guns. Deathstroke pulls out two ammo clips from his armor to reload, only to realize that Deadpool has disappeared, wondering where he has gone to. Deadpool teleports behind him and kicks him.

Deadpool: BAMF!

Deadpool beats Deathstroke while continuously teleporting, and Deathstroke drops his machine guns as well.

Deadpool: BAMF! Shoryuken! BAMF!

Deadpool leaps into the air in slowmo, poised to kick.

Deadpool: Check out this rad air!

Deathstroke gets kicked in the stomach and lands on the ground, pulling out his energy lance. Deadpool lands on the ground.

Deadpool: A Donatello fan, huh?

He takes out his twin katanas.

Deadpool: I was always more of a Leonardo guy myself. Although, I think most people would pin me more as a Michelangelo, you know that's them labeling—

Deathstroke hits him with his staff, interrupting him.

Deadpool: (distorted groan) I WILL NOT BE LABELED!

The combatants continue fighting.

Deadpool: No touchy-feely!

They fight until Deadpool is knocked far back by Deathstroke's Bo staff, but recovers his landing. Deathstroke goes after Deadpool.

Deadpool: BAMF!

He teleports.

Deadpool: Let's do this!

Deadpool continues fighting Deathstroke, but Deathstroke gains the advantage and continually hits and beats up Deadpool.

Deadpool: (yelps) OW! OW! OH, MY KIDNEY!

Deadpool escapes and teleports into the air.

Deadpool: Comin' at ya!

Deadpool attacks him in midair, but Deathstroke breaks his katanas with his staff. Deadpool teleports away to the side of a road, realizing his swords are broken, but Deathstroke chases him again.

Deadpool: I gotta say, It's kinda an honor to get the snot beaten out of me by you of all people. Bruises aside, of course.

Deathstroke: Let's see what kind of mark this leaves on you.

Deathstroke shoots a laser out of his lance, piercing through Deadpool's stomach and knocking him onto the road and he gets hit by a incoming truck. While on the truck windshield, his wounds begin to heal.

Deadpool: ACK! Hey buddy! Don't let me slow you down!

Deadpool teleports on top of the truck.

Deadpool: Where is that son of a gun? I'm gonna show him what for, I swear—

Deadpool is shot straight through the head.

Deadpool: OOoooh, SHIT!

Deathstroke is revealed to have his sniper rifle, and he reloads. Deadpool lands on windshield again. As his wound heals, he again speaks to the truck driver.

Deadpool: Look at me, LOOK AT ME! Do not slow down!

Deadpool teleports on top of the truck again. Deathstroke shoots and misses Deadpool while he keeps teleporting closer, even moving to the other side of the bridge at one point.

Deadpool: MISSED ME! Whoop! Whoop! Whoop! Whoop!

Deathstroke looks around as Deadpool continues to monologue, saying words between his teleports to taunt him.

Deadpool: I...

He teleports again.

Deadpool: HATE...

And again.

Deadpool: YOUR...

Deathstroke focuses on the road ahead as Deadpool suddenly appears from behind him.

Deadpool: Dumbface!

Expecting this, Deathstroke quickly turns and lands a hit on Deadpool.

Deadpool: OW, MY KIDNEY!

Deadpool is repeatedly punched and kicked until he goes down, Deathstroke then pulls out his sword.

Deadpool: Oh, is it swordfight time? Good thing I carry spares!

Deadpool and Deathstroke continue fighting, with Deadpool parrying Deathstroke.

Deadpool: Guess it's cutting time!

Deadpool continuously slashes Deathstroke, but his armor and healing factor leave him unscathed. Deathstroke gains the upper hand, shoots Deadpool in the face several times with his pistol, and breaks Deadpool's spare katanas.

Deathstroke: If you spent half as much time concentrating as you do talking, perhaps you would be less predictable.

Deadpool: Oh, you're kidding me! I'm predictable!?

Deadpool reaches and pulls out a boombox, playing his Marvel vs Capcom 3 theme once again. Deadpool somehow changes his clothes in a split second from his signature red and black jumpsuit to sweats with chains and a DEADPOOL headband.

Deadpool: I'm just getting warmed up!

As he starts dancing around, a special effects surrounds him making it more flashy and people are cheering from the foreground, causing Deathstroke to groan. Deadpool still breakdances while dodging all of Deathstroke's attacks and hitting him with break dance moves.

Deadpool: ♫This slick dynamite! He's coming for me, wants to fight!

As Deadpool keeps on dancing, an annoyed Deathstroke shoots the bus' tires with his pistol, causing it to skid and cause hundreds of cars to crash into each other. Both combatants stagger.

Deadpool teleports just as a car flies towards both him and Deathstroke while Deathstroke dodges it. Vans and cars kept crashing. Deadpool, who now is back in his old clothes and had dual pistols, and Deathstroke both leap off two different vehicles towards each other.

The truck tips over while the combatants fight in mid-air and then land on the side of the school bus, still in midair. They continue to fight, evenly matched, until Deadpool holds a gun to Deathstroke's head, which ends in Deathstroke wildly slashing Deadpool.

Deadpool: OW! OW! OW! MY OTHER LUNG! OW! OW! OW!

Deadpool gets impaled through the chest.

Deadpool: MY SPLEEN!

Deadpool then gets shot in the back of the head and sent flying.

Deadpool: MY LEG!

Deadpool ends up landing on a flying car.

Deadpool: OH! IT'S CRAMPING!

Deathstroke jumps at the car and cuts it in half just as Deadpool teleports away, causing an explosion. He then realizes his sword is missing after the explosion. Deadpool teleports in front of Deathstroke and stabs him with his own sword.

Deadpool: Pop-Pop, watching Deathstroke—

He then suddenly senses a flaming semi-truck truck that's about to collide with him and turns around.

Deadpool: Ah, damn it!

It collides with him head-on, causing him to complain of another injury...

Deadpool: OH MY THIRD LUNG IS SO—

... before it subsequently hits the ground, exploding in a giant fireball. As multiple vehicles come crashing back down onto the bridge, an unconscious Deathstoke is seen, as is Deadpool, who is unfazed by the damage, and he gets up revealing that he's missing an arm.

Deadpool: Well, that escalated quickly. Yeah, you might want to lay low for a couple of days, cause... you are, pretty much responsible for a mass murder.

Deadpool puts his limb back on while Deathstroke, who is missing his mask, lets out a groan while regaining consciousness with a sword in his chest.

Deadpool: (laughs) It's a Deathstroke kabob!

While he was pointing at Deathstroke mockingly, he just realized that he putted in his leg on the upper arm and his arm attached to the thigh by mistake.

Deadpool: Whoops! Hang on, give me a sec. Oh this is going to hurt!

An off-screen Deadpool is heard painfully removing and reattaching his limbs in the correct places while Deathstroke pulls his sword out of his chest, who then struggles to get up while groaning in pain.

Deadpool: Whoa, hold on! You heal fast too? I got something special for that!

As Deathstroke finally gets on his feet, Deadpool pulls out his last sword.

Deadpool: Carbonadium Sword! Murdering all your pesky Wolverines and Saberteeth since 2012! Good year for cinema.

The combatants clash one more time, again evenly matched. While their swords are locked, Deadpool points his pistol against his arm and right at Deathstroke's face. In that moment, the battle pauses as Deadpool looks to the audience.

Deadpool: All the children in the audience, cover your eyes!

He then fires, the bullet going through his arm and hitting Deathstroke's only eye. As he blindingly staggers back while slashing away at nothing, Deadpool finally teleports behind him and cuts him at the back of the neck, and Deathstroke falls as the screen blacks out.

Deathstroke: (deep voice) And the moral of the story is...

Deadpool reveals himself puppeteering Deathstroke's head.

Deadpool: (normal voice) (gasps) Deadpool wins! YAY!

He tosses away Slade's head as explosions occur soon after, while Deadpool sings Macarena while replacing two lines.

Deadpool: ♫This is totally racist. HEYYY CHIMICHANGAAAAAAA!(chomping noise)

Ko season 2

Deadpool is seen driving a red luxury car through the bridge, where he has made Deathstroke's dismembered head the vehicle's hood ornament.

Deadpool appears on-screen.

Deadpool: (sarcastically) Oh! Oh, YouTube comments. Oh, I see you rolling. Oh, you're hating. Oh, it wounds me so— it doesn't at all. Explain how I beat this asshole.

Wiz: Don't tell me how to do my job. (clears throat) This was a surprisingly even match. Though Deathstroke was the superior fighter of the two and had the better armor, Deadpool could take all his punishment and give just as much.

Boomstick: Deathstroke's smart, so normally he would have no problem predicting his opponent's moves, but Deadpool is so unpredictable, not even Taskmaster, or sometimes even himself for that matter, can keep up with whatever he's doing.

Wiz: Unfortunately for Deathstroke, he didn't have the means to put Deadpool down for good. And while Deathstroke's healing factor was perfect for repairing damage, Deadpool's trumped his by being capable of replacing entire organs at a much faster rate. Sometimes the original isn't always the best.

Boomstick: Deadpool is just a cut above the rest.

We cut to the "Winner" card.

Wiz: The winner is—

Deadpool pops in victoriously to finish the last sentence.

Deadpool: Spider-Man! I mean Deadpool, shit!

Trivia

Production

  • The connections between Deadpool and Deathstroke are that they are both comic book mercenaries and masked, ruthless, gun-wielding swordsmen with healing factors. Both also have very similar names (Wade Wilson and Slade Wilson, respectively).
    • This is also a battle of opposites, as Deadpool is a chatterbox who never takes anything seriously while Deathstroke is usually silent and always serious.
    • Interestingly, Deadpool's character was originally meant to be a direct parody of Deathstroke, thus their glaring similarities.
  • This episode was supposed to be revealed at the end of Kirby VS Majin Buu, but because of that episode going through animation-based delays, this episode was announced ahead of time to make up for the delay, and was ultimately released first due to its schedule running on-track.
  • During one of Death Battle's live events, Torrian Crawford, who animated this episode, admitted that he liked Deathstroke more and that it pained him to animate him losing.
    • This would later be referenced in the first episode of The Industry, where Shaun Bolen tells Torrian that this episode is his favorite, before clarifying "...except for the ending!" due to Torrian's preferred combatant losing.

Easter Eggs

  • During Deadpool's analysis, Wiz mentions that when Wade was diagnosed with cancer, it "hit him like a flaming semi-truck falling on his face", which Boomstick considered an "oddly specific" descriptor. Sure enough, Deadpool would be inflicted with exactly that kind of injury right before the climax of the fight after stabbing Deathstroke with his own sword.
  • After Wiz tells him to shut up in Deathstroke's analysis, Deadpool complies with Wiz before calling him Ben, referencing Wiz's voice actor and the creator of Death Battle, Ben Singer.
  • Wiz and Boomstick make a call-back to Batman VS Captain America after hearing the phrase "see faster", the concept of which annoys Wiz.
  • Deadpool making Zoidberg noises while running away after drawing on Deathstroke's face and while dodging Deathstroke's shots is a reference to Curtis Arnott's role as Alucard in Hellsing Ultimate Abridged, in which the aforementioned character did the same thing while taunting an enemy.

Errors

  • In the analysis, Wiz states that Deadpool once killed the entire Marvel universe, including Wolverine, the latter of which he killed with a Carbonadium sword. Deadpool even uses this sword during the fight, with dialogue suggesting that he knows it's useful for killing "Wolverines". However, this is equating the mainline incarnation of Deadpool with another version of Deadpool from the multiverse, later known as Dreadpool, who did those feats and used that equipment instead of the one from Earth-616. While Deadpool would eventually kill Dreadpool, he's never suggested to have taken his sword while doing so.
