Deadpool is a blatant ripoff of Deathstroke. Deadpool = Wade Wilson. Deathstroke = Slade Wilson. Both military experiments. Both have accelerated healing. Deadpool = Wife deceased. Deathstroke = Wife deceased. Differences: Wade still has both eyes. Slade refuses to regrow his lost right eye. Wade has cancer. Slade doesn't. Wade has a sense of humor. Slade doesn't. Slade has kids. Wade doesn't.

Those differences were just to avoid Nicieza and Liefeld being sued by DC for copyright infringement.

I used the foremost mercenaries in each universe as an example. If you look at the creation dates for the characters that greatly resemble each other, you'll find that most of them are DC originally. Aquaman is one of very few exceptions, since Namor was created first.

First > Second
Flash > Quicksilver (speedsters)
Batman > Moon Knight (yes, both are called "The World's Greatest Detective")
Deathstroke > Deadpool (mercenaries/assassins)
DC Scarecrow > Marvel Scarecrow (fear villains)
Dr. Fate > Dr. Strange (sorcerers)
Darkseid > Thanos (gods)

I could continue the list, but I don't feel like putting a huge wall of text up. You get the idea, though.

just cuz the dates are close doesn't mean they were ripped off, but they possibly could. U never no, though. dc and marvel could've had a secret plan to make a bunch of the same types of characters for competition. besides, dates of offially coming out mean nothing. Marvel could've obviously made their characters first, then dc ripped them off, rushed the comics and released theirs 1st to make it look like marvel was doing the ripping off. That's y most dc origin stories tend to not be as good, because they were rushed.

besides, if they came out within a few days of each other, and neither company knew what the other was doing, neither could have possibly ripped each other off. Even a week apart wouldn't be enough time. A month, maybe. longer, definitely. but if they are close together, less than 2 weeks, no at all possible. even 3 or 4 weeks would be a stretch
