It’s sad when Image Comics is the adult in the room.

Remember how funny it was when Marvel pwned DC with their Microsoft Paint teasers “First”
and the one with 52 slash marks?
Yea, that was funny and not immature at all.
Well, in an effort to beat a dead horse until glue comes out, Marvel continued to troll DC at this year’s Diamond Retailers Summit. We’ve already covered (and given credit to, not that we are saying anything) BleedingCool's report of the upcoming “eight months later” Avengers story and for “breaking” the totally believable rumor that Marvel will do a sort of 52 style complete reboot of the universe. You know, because Marvel has seen how well that worked out for DC and Marvel is stupid.
But, that’s not all. Also at the retailer summit, Marvel that they too would publish a comic with “3000” in the title as a return of the original Guardians Of The Galaxy was hinted at via a giant image:
I guess Marvel figures that if DC can create a shitty book with "3000" in the title, the least they could do was resurrect a shitty book and put “3000” title.
But wait. There’s more! Not only was a Deadpool vs Hawkeye book announced – ok, that’s pretty cool – but Marvel also showed DC how it’s done with (yet another) Deadpool troll cover. This time, instead of being covered in bird poop, Deadpool will have his very own 3D* Motion Cover:
(*the "D" might only stand for 'dancing')
Do other industries pull petty crap like this?

About the Author - GHERU
RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time. RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage. Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write. RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them. RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor. You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
