Not many people read comic's, but the one’s that do they know in the comic book world there are many universes. A hero in one universe could have a “twin” in another, but everyone is different and has their pro’s and con’s. An example that many can relate to is the marvel and D.C. Universe. One group of characters that everyone can relate to is deathstroke (D.C.) and deadpool (Marvel). By the end of this you should see the similarities between these two mercenary/assassins and you will see the universes are alike but just with small tweaks to make them different.

I guess that is what happens when assassins collide.
