Comic Book Legends Revealed #582

Welcome to the five hundred and eighty-second in a series of examinations of comic book legends and whether they are true or false. Click here for an archive of the first five hundred (I actually haven't been able to update it in a while). This week, learn the secret origin of Deadpool's fascination with chimichangas, discover whether Grant Morrison forgot the ending of Son of Demon or not and learn if there was a Superman comic made just in Europe!

Let's begin!

NOTE: The column is on three pages, a page for each legend. There's a little "next" button on the top of the page and the bottom of the page to take you to the next page (and you can navigate between each page by just clicking on the little 1, 2 and 3 on the top and the bottom, as well).

COMIC LEGEND: Deadpool's fascination with chimichangas went back to a Marvel in-joke a decade old at the time.

STATUS: True

The other day, I answered a reader question about Deadpool's fascination with chimichangas, a relationship that has only gotten bigger and bigger now that chimichangas were featured extensively in the Deadpool film and in the marketing for the Deadpool film.

Like a Deadpool toy...

Chimichangas were used as part of Deadpool's IMAX trailer...

That's awesome. I love the idea of an in-joke lasting over a decade before it becoming such a major part of the characterization of such a major character.

Thanks to Fabian Nicieza and Germain Lussier for the information!
