Fans have waited for two long years to catch the man wearing a red-and-black full-body tactical suit and spouting R-rated jokes to get back into action. Yes, we are talking about Deadpool, who will be tickling our funny bones come May 18.

However, for Rob Liefeld, the comic book writer and artist who co-created the character of Deadpool with writer and editor Fabian Nicieza, watching the second installment of the 2016 movie was a different experience altogether. One that involved tears, not laughter. We kid you not.

Liefeld took to Twitter to share his experience of watching the film. It was a nostalgia-driven ride for him, watching his beloved creation come alive on screen for a second time and kick serious ass in the most spectacular fashion. *sniffle sniffle*

Following his Twitter admission, Liefeld moved over to Instagram, where he thanked Marvel for giving shape to his creative vision. "If, for whatever reason, my relationship with Marvel ended tomorrow, I am so appreciative that they gave me my own sandbox to create dynamic new characters. The fans were always there for me and these fun characters!" he wrote.

While we do get Liefeld's emotions, we will be grabbing a bucket of popcorn, some cans of soda and NOT a box of tissues while we watch Deapool& Co go up against Cable on May 18.
