History

Brain Drain's card

The Deadpool's Guide to Super Villains Cards are a set of 4522 4523 individual educational trading cards depicting villains, monsters, and baddies and providing general information about their background, powers, weaknesses, etc.[4][5] The cards were created and hand-drawn by Deadpool. Although most contain accurate information, a portion of information appears to have been fabricated by Deadpool. Squirrel Girl relies on these as a primary source of information when facing villains she is unfamiliar with.[4][6][7] She is also Deadpool's only client who has bought his cards.[8]

Accessory Cards

A companion card deck, the Deadpool's Guide to Super Villain Super Accessories Cards are a set of 1622 individual cards depicting villains' vehicles, weapons, and assorted paraphernalia.[1][7]

Notes

  • There are also Deadpool's Official Unofficial Guide to Super Heroes but most cards simply depict Deadpool looking into a mirror and giving himself a thumbs up.[4]

Trivia

Squirrel Girl showing Dum Dum Dugan her Iron Man Vs. Cards

  • This is not the first set of trading cards that Squirrel Girl has used to study and defeat villains. She also owns all the Iron Man Vs. Cards and previously used them to help her defeat M.O.D.O.K.[29]
  • Unbeatable Squirrel Girl writer Ryan North originally meant for Deadpool's Guide to Super Villains to work only as a callback to Iron Man Vs. Cards before realizing they could become a recurring backstory exposition device in the series.
  • Ms. Marvel has expressed a desire to get her own set of Deadpool's Guide to Super Villains Cards.[11]
  • Inspired by Deadpool's set, both Galactus and Tippy-Toe have created their own sets of trading cards.[30][23]
  • Doreen has sent a handwritten errata to Deadpool, in which she points out that card #101 is in mixed case while the rest are all caps, that the number #1011 is used twice, and proposed card #4523 for Melissa Morbeck.[5]
