Deadpool vs. General Grievous. Who wins?

Deadpool versus a guy with FOUR light sabers. Count them, FOUR! Lay out your case for who would win this battle between the epically unserious Deadpool and the depressingly serious Grievous in the comments.

For my money, I bet Deadpool would break the fourth wall to cut down the robotic general with a scathing critique of all things Lucas, ensuring the victory.

On a more “serious” note, the Force is a powerful ally. Deadpool has fought lots of people with super powers before, though, so I think he stands a good chance of avoiding evisceration long enough to get close. Ultimately it would come down to whether Grievous’ light sabers could make contact first.

  1. I thought the general did not have the Force, since he is a construct.
    Plus, Deadpool is aware of his alternate selves in the main comics, and could turn a potential loss around easily. (And would!)

  2. See, I learned something already!

  3. Deadpool would take this fight. Grievous may have been trained by Count Dooku but you can’t prepare for someone as crazy and unpredictable as Wade is. Plus his healing factor is a trump card that Grievous cannot match.

    Grievous doesn’t have Force powers? That settles it, Deadpool’s got this one in the bag!

  5. i loathe deadpool. the worst example of the 90’s EXTREME! trend! “hey what if i take spider-man’s costume and banter, plus wolverines powers and origin, combine with punisher’s guns, then have him be “meta” so people will think this is all clever.” ugh ugh ugh ugh ugh. if deadpool is in a comic i wont buy it.

  6. I just saw the general had votes, so ill throw another reason out for wade. Usually grievous deflects shots 100% of the time right? His lightsaber deflects lasers, and would disintegrate Wades first shot. Deadpool would see this, then get a ricochet kill, or throw a blade etc. :D

  7. BTW, as the loathing post was while im typing, i agree it looks like lazy creativity for deadpool, but you forget marvel answered that Weapon X(origins: wolverine) and Deadpool were two different Wades. And, the healing factor seems like copying since Department K in Canada, housed Logan AND wade, with wade recieving logans power before escaping as a failed subject. And his comments are because he’s a merc.

    uh… ok… im aware of deadpools “origin”. i stand by my statement that deadpool is a weak rip-off.

  9. Given that DP is a creation of the lazy and vacuous mind of He Who Shall Not Be Named, and Grievous is the creation of the lazy and vacuous mind of He Who Used To Be Great, I can only hope that this fight would result in a rupture of the time/space continuum, thereby resulting in the erasing from existence of both characters.

    …please?

    Bring back the “Like” button please Jeff? :D

  11. I’ll defer the huge writeup I was going to do against deadpool (yes, without capitalization. He doesn’t deserve it), and instead just agree wholeheartedly with Barbario and John.

  12. I think a lot of this depends first on “Which version of Deadpool?” and after deciding that, potentially “How many rounds are we talking about?” The current Wade Wilson has no healing factor (and no cancer, and is generally healed of his cancer; all of which will probably revert back to regular Deadpool sooner or later). As such, that version of Deadpool stands NO chance against Grievous.
    Classic version of Deadpool would probably also get eviscerated and dismembered, but at least could come back for a round two. And probably end up sticking High Explosives into Grievous’ exoskeleton, blowing him sky high.
    Unlike most of the haters, I think this could be a pretty funny match-up. Frankly, Deadpool now has about as much in common with Rob Liefeld as modern day Rome has with Julius Caeser.

  13. Ugh…I should re-review what I’m trying to say. I meant that currently Deadpool is cancer-free and healed from his scarring.

  14. Like any grossly exaggerated character, Deadpool depends on the creative team that handles them. Rick Remender’s been doing good things with him in X-Force, he adds some brevity to the action without being over the top. Like most things Liefeld, his origin is derivative and his initial characterization was entirely 90’s ultra-mega-hyper-XXXtreme, but other (far more talented writers) have been able to take the character to other places. Look at Cable, he’s certainly a unique character who’s been written into some interesting stories (despite his being dragged back into one-dimensional 90’s badass territory by Jeph Loeb during Avengers: X-Sanction. Ugh.<- the despicable man behind Red Hulk and Ultimatum). Shatterstar's another Liefeld creation who started out as a walking 90's cliche (extradimensional genetically engineered gladiator with DOUBLE BLADED SWORDS!!!), but in the hands of Peter David on X-Factor, he's an emotionally resonant and well-rounded character. Any character can be great, it just depends on the guy behind the wheel.

    Seriously though, Deadpool would shoot Grievous to pieces. I'll take him over a robot with a heart condition any day.

  15. Thanks Barbario. Thanks John.
    The fact that talented writers have done great things with deadpool doesn’t erase the stain.

    I vote for him, though. The classic DP. Crazy, impredictable, regenerates, and has the advantage of distance and easier planning (he can flee, create a trap with explosives. Gravious can flee and do nothing)

  17. Screw the force! Grevious has all he needs in the deadly “Saber Storm” attack and his almost invulnerable armor. Despite Deadpool’s speed, Grevious would be able to win simply by standing still and laughing as Deadpool’s blades and bullets bounce off his armor then breacking his neck when he becomes exhausted. Even if Deadpool somehow manages to gain the upper hand, Gervious can still scuttle away and retreat by means of his Omniwheel walker thingy. Deadpool VS Darth Maul would be better.

  18. I was always a fan of Grievous… losing spectacularly. I mean, he sure is an imposing enemy but when it comes to an actual strength, he puts all his cards in one cheap trick which once down, leaves him virtually defenseless. Whatever Deadpool is, from his fame I can guess he’s good enough to deal with a disarmed, inexplicably coughing cyborg.

  19. If he’s fighting against Deadpool then he’s making a Grievous mistake (sorry, couldn’t help myself). But in all seriousness, Deadpool has almost no seriousness at all, and he would kick Grievous’ ass with res shenanigans. Cool match up though (let the whirling blades insanity begin)

  20. I’m going to give it to Deadpool in a walk. Among the tricks he had is teleportation, which, when combined with an enemy that to my knowledge has no idea teleportation is even possible, leaves him wide open to having high explosives placed on his back before he knows what hit him.

    I really thought about this one with my nerd powers… taking into consideration the short lived fight between Cyclops, Beast and Wolverine versus Kirk, McCoy and Spock. Scott Lobdell says Spock beats Wolverine… Then the robot with the whooping cough and FOUR buzzsaw spinning Lightsabres can and should make Marveliefeld’s Deadpool a ghost.

    Then Wade can duke it out with all the Force ghosts he wants forever kind of like “Deadpool: Funeral For A Freak”. Meh.

    oh jeez i forgot about that. in the sequel Data pwns Wolverine. ooookay…

  23. Seriously?! Deadpool vs. Grievous? Not a chance. Grievous doesn’t even have Force powers and he got his ass kicked by a Jedi. Deadpool, however, is one of the most awesome heroes of all time. No way is Grievous gonna get Deadpool.
