Its no secret that the Marvel and DC universe characters have some similarities, for every DC character there’s probably an equivalent in the Marvel universe. Rather than fuel the age old question of who’s better or who copied who, an artist by the name of DarrenRawlings has come up with a gallery titled “Little Friends” on their deviantArt page that showcases each character and their counterpart! The most obvious ones would be Hawkeye and Green Arrow, Aquaman and Namor, Quicksilver and The Flash as well as some lesser known characters that are just as important as the ones previously mentioned.
Our favorite one would definitely have to be Wilson & Wilson, for Slade Wilson and Wade Wilson. The story behind these two is an interesting one, according to wikipedia, “Created by artist Rob Liefeld and writer Fabian Nicieza, Deadpool made his first appearance in the pages of New Mutants #98 published in February 1991. Rob Liefeld, a fan of the Teen Titans comics, showed his new character to then writer Fabian Nicieza. Upon seeing the costume and noting his characteristics (killer with super agility), Nicieza contacted Liefeld, saying ‘this is Deathstroke from Teen Titans.’ Nicieza gave Deadpool the real name of ‘Wade Wilson’ as an inside-joke to being ‘related’ to ‘Slade Wilson’, ‘Deathstroke’.”
