“Unapologetically, absent me there is no Deadpool. Period,” said Rob Liefeld. “I am the name, the costume, the look, the origin and the attitude. Great one-liners are the result of other writers. But there’s no Deadpool at all in existence without me.” <http://io9.gizmodo.com/the-unlikely-origins-of-deadpool-the-x-men-character-w-1757814457>
Based on this quote, does this make Rob Liefeld the Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, or Vince Russo of the comic book industry?
I’ve always seen Liefeld as the Vince Russo of comics. I don’t know if Russo can draw feet, but Liefeld taking over Captain America during Heroes Reborn was akin to Russo "saving" WCW in 1999, for example.
