Don’t call her Mrs. Deadpool. She’ll eat you alive. Literally. Introduced in Deadpool: The Gauntlet Infinite Comic #3 by Gerry Duggan, Brian Posehn and Reilly Brown, Shiklah was arranged to be married to Dracula in order to bring peace between the warring factions of Vampires and Succubi. Since he knew that some were against it, Dracula hired Deadpool to retrieve her and bring her to him. Deadpool went and almost instantly fell in love with the demon. They began traveling across the world and soon slept together, fighting people who wanted her dead including Blade. She was willing to marry Dracula until she learnt that he had killed her brothers. In order to prevent Dracula marrying her, she married Deadpool and worked together to dethrone Dracula and become the Queen of the monsters under New York. Afterward, Deadpool and her held a wedding ceremony with Nightcrawler officially marrying them. This wedding image currently held the record for the most characters on a page in history.

Deadpool and Shiklah would remain together for quite a while. However, problems soon began to form with their open marriage with Shiklah sleeping with other men and woman (including Werewolf by Night) and Deadpool spending more time with the Avengers and his kid then with her. This all came to a head when a monster got lost and wondered into some humans. He was shot by police and when the human courts wouldn’t give justice to the monster, she took to attacking and taking over New York. Wanting to stop his wife at all cost, he went to get Dracula back. He soon found him and return to New York, where Dracula asked Shiklah to marry him. Shiklah agreed and left with Dracula. She left a note with Deadpool that if she wanted a booty call, she would call him.

Despite being a big part of the Deadpool comic for a few years, not alot of people knew who she was. So it came as a surprise when Hasbro announced her figure in the Deadpool Strong Guy wave.


Queen of Monsters

Recommend Figure:  Hasbro Marvel Legends Deadpool Strong Guy wave – Shiklah with Jeff the Land Shark

  • Background:
    • Ever since her first appearance and with the exception of a couple of cocktail dress and human clothes, Shiklah had worn the same outfit. This of course is done differently by different artist but it is generally the same design.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • If you are a Deadpool fan, this is an essential figure for that collection. It’s not often you get a figure like this. If they make a new Dracula then alongside the Blade figure you can add her to your horror collection as well. Otherwise, skip. (Unless you want Jeff).
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • No.
