He’s Adrian Veidt with a cosmic version of the Redeker Plan, yeah? It’s a good build for a bad guy. I miss his old “I want to kill half the universe as a gift for Death, whom I love love love”-angle from the comics, but I think this version plays better. Or, it doesn’t have a self-destruct button built in.
Also, wonder if Deadpool will say anything about Brolin being both Thanos and Cable? Or, how can he not?
