    Deadpool at #4? Really?

    That said, I'm happy about this and hope it maintains. Overall, I've been pretty happy about the Marvel NOW output.

    Take that haters! Deadpool comes in at #4 beating Hulk, Thor, and the Fantastic Four! A-List, baby!

    Reviews were mostly positive and the creative team did a great job of promoting it.

    The power of a lot of #1 issues as more Marvel Now comes out. Its no shock this happened.

    Though seriously, #2 is a better indicator or success.

    All that's true, but it seemed like the Deadpool bubble had deflated and he was settling into B-character status. I'm glad to see it, like Posehn and Moore and I've been a fan of Deadpool since the Mark Waid mini. Hope the writing team stays intact for a while, think it's too much to hope Moore stays on for any length of time but I'll enjoy it while it lasts.

    Deadpool was a really fun comic though, i enjoyed it alot more then alot of the others. So im not surprised it was higher up.

    Here is what plenty of people are going to overlook when reviewing these numbers:

    Marvel NOW! All New X-Men #2 which was released in Novmber did not make that list. I know as a collector I purchased all #1 issues (along with several variant copies). Come January when the run of #1 issues from Marvel NOW! subsides how many of those will remain on top. My estimate - 4 out of 10.

    There are #1 releases in January and February.

    All New X-men should have a few months in the top 10, till Uncanny starts anyway. Then it should remain relatively in higher numbers.

    Captain America was a surprise, I wouldn't have thought it would crack the top 10. I'd like to see that last a while.
