- The canonicity of Deadpool bonding to the Venom symbiote in Deadpool's Secret Secret Wars and Deadpool: Back in Black is contested. Writer Cullen Bunn has repeatedly stated he considers it to be canon and has included references to it in Poison-X and Deadpool: Assassin #4. X-Men Senior Editor Jordan D. White also considers it to be canon, stating it to be the reason Deadpool admires and seeks to befriend Spider-Man. However, Donny Cates, the writer of Venom Vol. 4, has stated on Twitter that he does not consider them to be canon, and as such it was disregarded in Absolute Carnage - with Absolute Carnage vs. Deadpool #1 stating they are deliberately ignoring it.
