Deadpool & All Things Marvel: How I Choose to Relate with My Teen


Me:  WAIT!  Are they Marvel or DC?

Her:  oh my god mom

If I want to piss my teenaged daughter off quick, then all I have to do is ask her if the comic book character that she is talking about is Marvel (meaning Marvel Comics) or DC (meaning DC Comics).  Yeah apparently they are two different things and asking such a thing is completely asinine.  (Imagine her horror when I showed up as a modified Black BatGirl to her Miss Captain America on Halloween!  Eeek!) She loves comic books and is really into Marvel characters… Iron Man, ummm Agent Carter, Agents of the Shield, Nick Fury, Captain America, Thor… all of them. She is the youngest of 4 and her oldest brother was also a comic book fan.   She’s a good kid, gets good grades and all that jazz so I indulge her Marvel fixation by buying her any and every thing that I can find that is Marvel related, plus this is how I choose to relate with my teen.

I got her a lovely black and red shirt that had somebody Marvel on the front.  Handpicked myself from Hot Topic!  (yep went in alone came out unharmed) She was happy with it and so was I that is until we ran into a stranger at a coffee shop.  There we were ordering our joe and some millennial person said to her, “cool shirt!”  to which my daughter responds, “thanks.”  the millennial responds, “that’s Deadpool right?”  I chime in, “Deadpool? What’s a Deadpool?”  my daughter responds, “oh my god.” (like she did earlier but this time with an eye roll) They both laugh (at me).  As we walk to the car I ask again, “what’s a Deadpool?” I can’t remember if I ever got an answer.


This morning as she is getting dressed for school, something about DeadPool comes on the screen and I begin to remember that I never got an answer from my previous Deadpool questions, so I start in again.  Why is Deadpool dead?  Who killed him?  Why can’t he ever die?  Her response, “Mom, he regenerates… I have to go to school!”

So I went to Twitter to get my questions answered:

Lucky for me @BrianBiscieglia had some time to explain it all!


She will think that I am so cool when she finds out that I received a preview of the #Deadpool trailer and movie synopsis in my email today! #BloggerLife
