Rob Liefeld never seems to stop working. The legendary creator of Deadpool, Cable, Domino, and many other Marvel comic book characters has spent the coronavirus pandemic developing an original new series, launching a podcast, and promoting his new G.I. Joe comic book Snake Eyes: Deadgame.
As the latest guest on Inverse Social Hour, he also answered a few personal questions about his career, from his bucket list of comics he still wants to write (the answer will surprise you) to the one person he owes most for his current accomplishments. Of course, we also asked about Deadpool 3, and Liefeld has more bad news for any fans hoping for another Ryan Reynolds superhero movie.
