Hm ... never saw the start of the contest :/

  • If you joined Deadpool's X-Force team, what would be your codename and power?  Codname: Moody  Power: blood control ( can make weapons out of blood and well as use it as shield and different attacks. Can be the blood of others  or my own blood ( Downside of using my blood is becoming anemic and needing to get blood any way necessary, plus side: better attack and defence )

  • Share a story of you putting forth #MaximumEffort! I always put MaxEff when I want to. Like studying and doing homework for 32 h straight ( so no sleep at all ), take the exam ( and pass it  ), then come home and crash in the bed for a new hours of ZzZZz

Probably because their art is super good. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure there are hundreds or thousands of artists that would have been great with this. But these artists were approached individually I'm pretty sure. It'd have been cool to see an open contest though, rather than just 5 people. Can't ever have enough Deadpool art!

Yep. It seems that’s how most contests on DA have been conducted the last few years. I love these artists, love their art, but...it just gets super hard to get recognized these days, even if you’re an up-and-coming talent.

Lol, there's an actual book about a boy who joins the X- Men school and his powers is not being noticed by anyone. Just if he really tried to get someone's attention by shouting or something. The book is focused on him and how he gets to meet and help out Wolverine. I really liked it, the story was good and the jokes were okay : )

1.
Codename: Sunny
Superpower: I would be able to make my skin glow (triggered by anger), and whatever came into contact with me while I was glowing would die/decay/be destroyed. (Because I can be so angry at times I want to kill everyone I'm angry at or that is in my general field of view)

2.

It has to do with proliferation of fire weapons of all kind, pretty much the 1st thing kids see on tv and at the cinema. 
Is this Deadpool doing anything but killing ppl and making fun of it ?

Still has nothing to do with what you said. 
If kids are copying shooting people because of TV then it's bad parenting or they have mental issues. Either way it's personal and has nothing to do with what other people do with their creative freedom.

1. My X-Force codename would be Deadpan. I would have all of the same powers as Wade but with less enthusiasm. I would become the antithesis of Deadpool's personality. Take off Deadpan's black and gray mask and you would find Daria.

2. Cable? I guess. I'm not even a big Deadpool fan. I saw the first movie once. I laughed. Tried watching it again and not even a chuckle. I'll watch the second one with probably similar results.

3. #MaximumEffort That sounds a lot like hard work. No thanks.

I actually just saw it. 

1. My super power would be able to turn the semen in any man's testicles into acid, and then let nature take it's course. I would be called- THE ASSHOLE....or....Incredibly low sperm count man! Or, I dunno, perhaps the Sadist?
It's a pretty horrific and vicious super power that turns the semen inside of a man's testicles into acid and melts his gonads from the inside out. Unless that villain has balls of steel.....it's still gonna hurt. Traumatically. 
2. Domino, before the movie because I wanted to see how they would do her character. After the movie because 1) she's very attractive and 2) has an interesting personality. Although the DP movies showed Colossus in a positive light, too. He could be a charismatic leader. 
3. When I got pissed off with a coworker because I was afraid he was shirking how clean the dishes were and I was afraid he was going to poison somebody with those nasty dishes, and it was also in defense because he was getting on me for being slow (cuz I'm new). But I'm 29 and a vet, he's a highschooler. Even though he's been there longer than me and got some kind of award, he had such a cocky demeanor and kept trying to get people to ignore all the nasty unclean dishes he was pushing through and refused to rewash, or breaking (it was hilarious. After telling me to hurry up, he would usually break something). 
So I told him to fuck off and am probably at a big risk of getting fired for one of the few jobs that's actually fucking hiring in the neighborhood. I got scary and pissed. But at least I felt like I put him in his place. I felt justified because he was passing some nasty dishes through, and the other dish washers often got annoyed by his smug attitude. I don't hate teenagers, in fact I feel sorry for them when they are really good kids who get abused by bullies or authority just for being different or calling out legit hypocrisy, esp if falsely accused, but I have a feeling this guy hasn't been humbled by life yet. 
I also get a feeling he's not truly a bad kid or a bully, and part of it is him just rubbing me the wrong way. He's probably not as bad as I feel he is. But he was cocky and cheating and came off as arrogant, and he was asking me to break the rules which could have gotten people sick. Also I had enough of highschool, abusive parents, politics, and life in the army, I wasn't in the mood to get bullied by somebody who was a pretty boy again.
After I yelled at him and had somebody come between us, I was so pissed that I actually worked faster and carried bigger loads on pure anger adrenaline alone. I guess I met him half way. I worked faster and he pushed through less nasty assed dishes. 

(all the other jobs are so reluctant to hire. Damn this gig economy. I actually have a good resume- family business, big lots, target, 4.5 years  military and honorably discharged, graduated college, and even had a job in late college. No criminal record. But apparently that's not good enough for Target or Books A million these days, unless I freaking know somebody. These people ask you to do online applications and submit copies of your resume, just so they can delete half of them without hardly looking at them. They have to know they're missing out on some decent workers, but unless you come in juggling cats on a unicycle as Jesus, they aren't impressed. It's like they expect Jesus, but if you were Jesus they wouldn't like you for your facial hair, sandals, and running a foul of the law in your life-even though you were completely innocent. I know my experience has got to be good for something better. I just wanted something comfortable to hold me over until then. I mean it wasn't asking too much to a get a job at a hotel or target or something until I could earn enough of a safety net/nest egg, but nooooo, Murfreesboro is having a hard time hiring people. I hear the economy is that bad everywhere. Good thing I went to see Deadpool 2 to let off some steam, cuz I'm still frustrated and heartbroken. Although I still work at the barrel I'm keeping my eyes open. 
That whole thing about online applications has to be a lie. I think the only hope I have is to go to a job fair on thursday and see people face to face. Although it's always been this way to a degree, it's gonna be hard to get a middle class job soon. I dare say I wonder if feudalism is coming back, either that or India style economic caste system. Like there's no middle steps jobs between being a barista at star bucks or being a lawyer. Unless you know somebody to train you or know somebody to be a lawyer, you're not getting there. Either you have to be able to jump six steps from the get go or you're stuck at step one. The middle steps to work up have been left out. So basically you're either a peasant or an aristo, because after last recession, the sturdy jobs got replaced by automation and imploded the middle class and the economy.
This kind of economy, I wouldn't blame people for hiring up for X Force type work. I'm serious, Deadpool could only recruit people like this in a gig economy.)

I've worked with arrogant assholes too, though I feel that we both have worked with assholes that were equally terrible. I work as a cleaner, I worked night shift at an airport for a week with 15 other people, out of those 16 people only 3-4 or maybe even 5 people did their job while the other side of the group just hung around talking. I was so angry I had murder in my eyes. It's just a good thing that I didn't actually kill them, because I would have if I was as impulsive as I used to be a couple of years ago. (I'm 23 soon, btw for the sake of argument)

You lashing out and screaming is the most you could have done without commencing in bodily contact and I think it's fair, I applaud you. Clap

Great job everyone! I look forward to seeing your art around in the real world! If Deadpool doesn't end up on a pink pony or tricycle or something, I'm gonna be really disappointed.

1. My power would either be camouflage (because I tend to blend in and people treat me like I'm invisible) or some kind of sound-based power (because I love listening to and making music). My codename would depend on my power.
2. Can't wait to see Thanos playing Cable! And let's not forget the fan favorite, Peter!
3. Does waking up every morning count? #MaximumEffort! If not, I'd say the one time I actually read the terms and conditions before accepting the user agreement for something.

Also, there needs to be some kind of Deadpool badge! Even if just for the artists who made the posters. Deadpool deserves a badge in his honor!

Hollywood in general loves actors named Chris though (Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Chris O'Donnell, Chris Pine, Chris Pratt...) and characters named Steve (Steve Rogers, Stephen Strange, Steve from Stranger Things, Steve Trevor, Steven Universe...) too though. Really, I think that any common name is bound to recur in a franchise so massive and an industry so old and popular.
