Default The next deadpool - name your picks!

Since we are talking about deadpool in the copper age thread, would love to hear your views on which character u think will be the next deadpool. It might not seem possible now, but deadpool hasn't always been this popular. Hence, it is foreseen that someone else will rise in the next 5 years.

Would love to hear your reasons for your picks as well.

Criteria for picks:
Under $50 for a 8.0 and above copy.
Has a genuine reason for mass appeal.

My picks:

Nightwing: Based on the fact that his appearances such as new 52 #1, nightwing 8 etc is selling well above cover prices, I would think there is a sizeable fan base for this character without the hype of any movie appearance. The first appearance of dick grayson is of course out of reach for most of us but nightwing's first appearance is still affordable.

Rocket Raccoon: A bit of deadpool-like, I can see him picking up fans with his blend of guns and humor. If the movie is a hit, he could be the next iron man in terms of character recognition. Believe it or not, hulk 271 is still available for less than USD50 if you pay attention to ebay auctions.

Cable: Used to be real popular during the 90s but have mellowed. the 2015 xforce movie might revive his popularity or not. Current prices are definitely driven by the hype so the real question is whether there is a mass market appeal for the character.

Fantomex: One of the real interesting characters to come out from 2000s onwards. The first uncanny xforce run showcases the character well but the second volume is a mess. It is a 50:50 whether he will become as popular as deadpool but the potential is there compared to the rest of the new characters.

Now, over to you guys

Damian Wayne
Mania (Venom)
Bane (Vengeance of Bane)
"King" Ezekiel (Walking Dead)
Bishop (X-Men) depending on the movie and how he is portrayed and how much screen time he gets

Rocket raccoon has the most potential, you've gotta believe that marvel will do him right, under 50 bucks? I need to start paying attention more

Does X-23 count..??
She could get more popular...
Miles Morales would be another possibility, if he's brought into the 616...
...or DOOP!

I am going to be the devil's advocate here and try to challenge your logic behind your choices to make this thread more interesting

I think most of damian, mania and "king" need a much longer time to prove themselves. Do you think they can reach Deadpool like status within the next 5 years?

Bishop will probably have a small role like the rest of the xmen. Wolverine will again be the main attraction so I don't see bishop performing much.

Bane is a villain and most villains don't do well. It is hard to mimic the success the Thanos most of the time.

X23 is a possibility but is marvel pushing her now or is she fading away?

Miles morales will likely not be the next deadpool since clones of an existing concept don't do as well. Wolverine is as different to deadpool as dealpool is different to harley quinn. Of course I might be wrong but history so far has been about unique characters, rather than clone concepts.

This is only if they bring Damian back I guess though (which knowing DC I'm sure they will.

Rocket Raccoon has the most potential IMHO. Can still pick up Rocket Raccoon #1 (4 part mini, 1985), and even though it's not his 1st true comic appearance, it is still seeing a rise in sales.

Thor #165. Adam Warlock. Is it a risk? Yes. His first appearance is really all over the place for a lot of collectors, but I think this is the top one. But a CGC 8.0 sold for $50 a few months ago, so I'm sure you can find a raw copy in high grade for a lot less.

Thanks for the inputs guys. The aim of the thread is to identify the next breakout characters, and NOT the next issue that will appreciate in price due to movie rumors.

Under this perspective, thor 165 will fall into the second category. If adam warlock appears in a movie, this issue will no doubt rise but he will not be the next deadpool. Adam just doesn't have the mainstream appeal.

So far, the following seems to have the most votes:
Rocket
Nightwing
Deathstroke

Any other candidates?
If not, who among the 3 will be the biggest breakout in your opinion?

Harley is hot, no doubt about it but let's not forget she wasn't this hot 3 years ago. Hence, 3 years later, there will be another breakout character.

I mean Deathstroke would also fall into the second category. NTT #2 was $15-20 before Arrow.

If done right in the movie, I am fairly certain that Rocket Raccoon will be the "next" Deadpool.

He is a cute, cuddly, calculated, psychotic, murdering space furry. How can you not get behind that?

Actually, the Flash will be the next hero to get hot IMHO. They're going to pimp him out on The Arrow TV show. Pick up what you can now as I see that series getting some heat soon.

What issues can we really afford? I haven't looked at any, but I figure Flash is one of the pricier ones. I tried buying a Deadshot last year and the price was absurd.

Fantomex. There's similar humor in him that Deadpool has and that could be a draw to his character.

I think Franklin Richards will be bigtime soon. A greater than Omega-level mutant. How big is that!

FF Annual 6 is a good buy any day of the week. Also, It's the first appearance of Annihilus, so you can't lose. Especially if they make him the next movie villain...
