Marvel Comics celebrates its 80th birthday today with the release of Marvel Comics # 1000. The issue features a startling performance by one of Batman's most beloved characters in the Distinguished Competition.
Marvel Comics # 1000 is formatted so that each page tells a one-sided story that was inspired by a major event Marvel's story. There is a story for every year of Marvel's story. In 1997, the issue celebrates that Deadpool receives its first consecutive series. The site was written by former Deadpool writer Gail Simone and drawn by David Baldeón.
In the story titled "Turkey Soup for the Deadpool Soul," Deadpool creates encouraging stories. His ideas include "going to a wet buffet and pretending to be Galactus", "a completely friendly journey with good friends" and "a peaceful boat trip".
The board showing the boat trip is the interesting one. Deadpool sets off with the batboat of Batman Forever while Batman recalls him in the foreground. You can not see Batman's face, but this glove and hood are unmistakable. Here you can take a look.
