I've heard of swipe files but that is ridiculous. I do hope Rob Liefeld was paid twice. I am sure someone can see some kind of irony of Marvel copying from one of the 20th Anniversary of Deadpool Liefeld covers to the other, but not me.

Rob Liefeld is an American comic book creator, best known for his work on New Mutants and X-Force, where he co-created Cable and Deadpool as well as Youngblood, Prophet, Supreme, Captain America, Avengers, and most recently Major X, GI Joe, and Red Circle. In 1992, he and several other popular Marvel illustrators left the company to found Image Comics, which started a wave of comic books owned by their creators rather than by publishers.
