The Youngblood Easter Eggs In Rob Liefeld’s ‘Cable & Deadpool’ #25 Cover

From his contribution to the upcoming “Deadpool: Merc With A Mouth” #7 to his pencils in the “Image United” event, Rob Liefeld’s been keeping busy revisiting some of him most popular characters of late.

Now, the artist has illustrated two of his most celebrated creations in April’s “Cable & Deadpool,” #25, with a cover that pays homage to DC’s “Crisis On Infinite Earths” #7.

Of course, Cable and Deadpool aren’t the only heroes on the cover. The background features many of Marvel’s flagship heroes along with what looks to be another Liefeld creation – Badrock and a few other cats from Youngblood.

The image is pretty clear over at CBR, but I’ve enhanced the image for all to easily enjoy (check the glowing yellow dude behind the blurred-out Nick Fury):

CBR’s own Kiel Phegley pointed out the seeming Easter Egg on Twitter by asking Liefeld for a positive I.D. Naturally, Liefeld denied Phegley’s assertion, but given the smiley involved, I’d say he’s right on the money.
