Deadpool Gets Venomous In ‘Deadpool: Back In Black’ #1 [Preview]
The Venom Symbiote bonds with Deadpool, giving him new powers and a stylish monochromatic look, in Deadpool: Back in Black #1 by Cullen Bunn and Salva Espin, the team behind Deadpool and the Mercs for Money. The comic follows directly on Deadpool's Secret Secret Wars, also written by Bunn, which shows the Merc with a Mouth briefly wearing the Symbiote on the original Battleword, before Spider-Man ever did.
Back in Black is also a flashback, set after Spider-Man first rejected the symbiotic alien costume. Since the preview is unlettered, we don't know much else, except that Machine Man is involved somehow, and also some pretty dangerous looking aliens, who I assume have come to Earth looking for the symbiote. Or maybe they're looking for Deadpool. Either way, they're bound to run into him, and into trouble.
Here's the official word from Marvel:
