“GET ZAPATA”
Whoa! Lots has changed since we last spoke, eh? Where were we before the big “Crisis of the CBR Forums” event? Oh yeah, yours truly just became a small business owner. Move over Blackwater, there’s new hotness in the private security sector and its name is Force Works! With the trademark acquired because U.S. Agent forgot to register it, I’m taking applications! It’s just me and the Zapata Brothers for now, safeguarding the world (or at least certain parties that live in the world) for modest fees! What could possibly go wrong?
So yeah, things go completely wrong. But prior to getting into all that, let me drop some knowledge! Did you know that certain plants, when smoked or ingested, can have radical, mind-altering effects on otherwise normal, law-abiding citizens? Oh yeah! They can totally turn you into a criminal overnight! And nobody knows this better than Blackheath, the photosynthesizin’ Plantman! Every bad guy on AOM’s available character list is out to get the not-so-jolly green man for what he can grow, but Force Works won’t let that happen! The first contender: a jacked red alien calling himself Axeman Bone! While that’s a wicked name for either a lead guitarist or a male pornstar, I can’t have him jeopardizing my profit margins! The team and I engage, and everything’s going heroically until I suffer the greatest betrayal I’ve ever experienced: The Zapatas turn on me! I CAN’T EVEN! What would Mil Máscaras think?
So now I’m down and out. Who can I call upon to in my hour of need? Axeman is a Hulk-level powerhouse, so how about my old frenemy Cain Marko – the Unstoppable Juggernaut! And to take out the mexi-mercs, here comes the gun-slingin’ simian, Hit-Monkey, and the intangible, ectoplasmic (at least I hope that’s ectoplasm) hacktivist, Ghost! Force Works is back, baby!
Every issue comes with a one-size-fits-most replica Zapata Brother Luchador Mask… complete with actual bullet holes!

“SPECIAL FORCES TEAM X” Prelude “SO WEAPON-XY IT HURTS”
Never let it be said that Mr. Wilson doesn’t love the ladies. In this case, the ladies are my fellow Team-X alumnus Silver Fox, who has the power to touch you and make you do what she wants (a power seemingly shared by most of the women in my life) and her new protégé Girlverine, who is a girl Wolverine (my editor is telling me her name is X-23, but Girlverine has so much more panache!). They’re on a mission to bust up the remnants of Weapon X, the infamous mutant exploitation and experimentation organization, which is under the new management of Lady Deathstrike, the knife-fingered heir to the guy that invented the adamantium-bonding process! I owe Weapon X for my healthy complexion, so you don’t gotta ask me twice if I want to take them down!
But Deadpool, you ask, isn’t Force Works still trying to rescue Plantman from Axeman Bone and the Zapatas? (Thanks for buying the Zero issue BTdubs). Well, my keen deductive reasoning leads me to believe the problems overlap. My first clue: Lady Deathstrike sucker-stabbed me in the face while we were fighting Axeman and the Zapatas, right before they all escaped together. Looks like Weapon X is back in the mutant kidnapping game. Can Force Works save the day before Axeman gets an upgrade? And what AOM universe villain cartel is Deathstrike trying to sell the enhancement process to? Buy the book and find out!
Issue comes with a free 1 oz. sample of my new fragranced aerosol deodorant, “Weapon Axe Body Spray.”

“SPECIAL FORCES TEAM X” Part 2.0 “REGRETS”
Everybody into the ‘Pool! So as you know from DP&FW #1, Force Works is looking to put a stop to the Weapon X program. It’s not just about civic responsibility, I actually feel partly at fault for the nastiness they’ve perpetrated for the past 50 years. Back in the ‘60s, Silver Fox and I were on a spook team with some other schmucks (yes, I’m older than I look). Little did we know at the time that the adamantium we acquired or mutants we tagged and bagged would be used to make weapons… X weapons… for Weapon X!
One particular mission in ’67 is coming back to haunt me. A scientist we re-kidnapped, Kenji Oyama, went on to father Yuriko Oyama, a.k.a. the princess of stab and current head of Weapon X, Lady Deathstrike! She carries on the proud legacy of brutally experimenting on “innocent” mutants to enhance them with adamantium or the powers of other mutants, and she’s shopping her process around the criminal underworld. Her first meeting is with the Gorgon, leader of the Hand! The last thing the world needs is a gaggle of super-ninjas wearing red (that’s totally my shtick!), so Force Works will make sure that exchange never happens – with gratuitous violence!

“SPECIAL FORCES TEAM X” Part 2.1 “WEAPON XI”
In this very issue, I will face my greatest enemy… me?!? Wait, back up. Force Works and I were crashing Weapon X’s party, looking to shut down those mutant-kidnapping mama jamas for good. Problem: Weapon X’s new head honcho, Lady Deathstrike, just gave her henchmen Weapon-X style power-ups! Axeman Bone, the Zapata Brothers, and Hand ninjas with adamantium and stolen powers? Nothing my partners X-23, Silver Fox, Hit-Monkey, Ghost, and Juggernaut can’t handle (right?). That leaves me free to deal with the worst mook Weapon X has churned out. Bald, no mouth, some weird red rosacea around his eyes, adamantium bones, optic blasts, super-agility, teleporting, and big swords coming out of his arms… oh damn. Those abilities remind me of a bunch of dead mutants I tagged and bagged when I was on Team X back in 1980! It’s like all those dead guy’s powers got pooled into this guy. Like he’s a pool… of the dead. Like he’s… Deadpool? But he is totally not Deadpool! I’m Deadpool! No, this abomination can only go by a different name. It’s the battle you never knew you wanted to see – Deadpool versus Dudepeel! To the death! But crap, he’s got a lot more powers than I do. Maybe we can rethink that death thing?
• Issue comes with a free autographed 8x10 of Scott Adkins, the actor who portrayed Dudepeel when Ryan Reynolds didn’t want to film the end of that terrible Wolverine movie!

“SPECIAL FORCES TEAM X” Part 2.3 “FRENEMY OF THE STATE”
Brainwashing, man. It never makes your brain any cleaner! There’s an impromptu Team X reunion when Weapon X manages to repossess the minds of Wolverine, Sabretooth, X-23, Silver Fox, and myself (Praise be to Lady Deathstrike! All hail Romulus!). Needless to say, they’re not using us to participate in community beautification projects. After a successful test run dismantling an A.I.M. outpost (Death to the competition!), Weapon X sics us on a more ambitious target… the X-Mansion in Westchester, New York – home of the Uncanny X-Men! Our mission: kill ‘em all, let Mephisto sort ‘em out! It’s up to the rest of Force Works to help the X-Men stop us, but are those uncanny goody-two-shoes going to trust bad guys gone good(ish) like Ghost, Hit-Monkey, and especially their old sparring partner, the Juggernaut? Even if they do, can anyone help me reclaim ownership of my brain? This is the big finale: either we get liberated, or next week you can look for “DEADPOOL & TEAM X #1”! (Wolverine would be on the cover for a sales boost, natch).
• Issue comes with a foil cover that you can turn into a hat to protect your own brains from mind control! (But why do that? It will reduce your comic’s resale value! Weapon X über alles!).

“GHOST AGAINST THE MACHINE”
You know what I like best about my buddy Ghost? It’s not just that he thinks school shootings are government orchestrated plots to induce gun-grabbing mass hysteria (yeah I got a license for these, it’s called the 2nd Amendment!), or his unequivocal proof that the Facebook app secretly activates your smartphone’s mic so it can monitor you at all times (Zuckerberg is listening to you masturbate!). No, it’s the fact that, as a full-time corporate saboteur, he gets allll the dirt on the bigtime crony capitalists! For example, he heard that everybody’s favorite Sentinel Manufacturer, Trask Industries, has merged on the down-low with KSI – a startup that’s been filing patents impressive enough to make Ghost salivate in his helmet. But the tech is more than meets the eye, and Ghost assures me that it could have only come from… (channeling Giorgio A. Tsoukalos)… ALIENS! So, we’ve got to sneak into KSI’s HQ to, ahem, “liberate” some hardware. They make mutant-detecting Sentinels there, so this infiltration will be strictly no homo superior. That means its Ghost, Hit-Monkey, and myself – and you won’t believe what we see inside! (Did that Sentinel just turn into a @#$%ing truck?!). But why are they all suddenly noticing us? I don’t have an x-gene, neither does Ghost, so that leaves… wait a minute, not all macaques are expert triggermen with impeccable fashion sense? (Everything I learned in high school biology was a lie!). Hit-Monkey’s a mutant and we’re in a bunch of trouble, because we just pissed off KSI’s silent partner… and his name is Megatron!

“LIFE IN A BOX”
This year I'm spending Christmas trapped in a box in Megatron's basement! That's because me, Hit-Monkey, and Ghost got nabbed last ish trying to infiltrate KSI's sentinel-manufacturing HQ in rural China. Probably not the best idea in hindsight (Who's gonna erect my Festivus pole now?). The big bad Decepticon didn't have much use for us non-technophiles beyond experimentation, but he was really interested in Ghost's patent-pending intangibility inventions – so Ghost agreed to work for him! Has that rascally corporate terrorist betrayed me, or is he working against Megatron from the inside? Oh my god, it's a mirage – I'm tellin' y'all it's sabotage! (maybe).
Meanwhile, I'm entirely confident that the rest of Force Works will absolutely not rest until they find and liberate me from the clutches of... wait a minute, they haven't even noticed I'm gone? Juggernaut's totally nervous for his “big” date with Big Bertha. Can X-23 and Silver Fox feed him the lines he needs to seal the deal through an earpiece? What could possibly go wrong?... besides an attack by the Lady Deathstrike! And who's that in Juggernaut's other ear? None other than the mystical and malevolent demon Cyttorak... and he's whispering more than just sweet nothings!

“I'M THE JUGGERNAUT'S BITCH”
My buddy Juggernaut has been complaining about hearing voices, but I just thought he caught a mild case of schizophrenia from sharing kitchen utensils with me (It's like strep throat, don'tcha know?). Turns out, he actually was hearing the voice of the demon lord Cyttorak – the very same evil dude that gave him his muscles! (Contrary to what you may have seen advertised, it wasn't P90x). Anyways, Cyttorak's voice is like a non-stop Jewish mother, kvetching on about “You're not perpetrating enough random destruction, why do you hate me so much?” The guy can only take so much, so he starts smashing his way across the country, making a b-line towards the federal penitentiary where his half-brother Charles Xavier is being held as a political prisoner. Charlie wants to wait for his day in court, but if Juggy busts him out of prison, it could push human-mutant relations to their breaking point - and it's up to Force Works to prevent that from happening! While X-23, Silver Fox, and Juggernaut's new girlfriend Big Bertha slow him down (since nothing stops him), I'm taking Ghost and Hit-Monkey with me into the Crimson Cosmos to confront Cyttorak himself! But Cyttorak has tricks up his sleeve... Which one of us will he transform into his new unstoppable avatar? (hint: it's a monkey).
• Issue comes with a free Crimson Gem of Cyttorak! (It's cubic zirconia!)

“I'M THE JUGGERNAUT'S BITCH” Part Two “THE UNSTOPPABLE MACAQUE”
So last ish I executed an ingenious plan to confront the baddie who was psychologically tormenting my broski Cain “The Juggernaut” Marko. The baddie in question happened to be the same guy who gave Juggy his powers - the god of bench-pressing, Cyttorak! Good news – we managed to stop Cyttorak from forcing Juggernaut to go on a rampage. Bad news – that left Cain without powers mid-rampage and at the mercy of some pretty pissed off law enforcement officials. I hope X-23, Silver Fox, and Big Bertha can get him out alive... Oh, maybe Cain's step-brother Charles can help?
Double bad news – Cytorrak didn't give up on the whole “destructive avatar” thing, he just picked a new one... Hit-Monkey! With the powers of invulnerability and incalculable strength, plus a maddening god in his ear (Its a well known fact that animals are more susceptible to spiritual possession than humans. That's just science!), its up to me and Ghost to stop the unstoppable Hit-Monkey before he levels the cities of man!

“FAMILY FEUD” Part Two “I FOUGHT THE LAW”
Last ish we managed to fake-out Cytorrak and get Juggernaut his powers back (I'm sure that situation is fully resolved and will not come back to haunt us in any way!). Problem is, Juggernaut trashed like half the country while Cytorrak was controlling him, then Hit-Monkey did the same when he briefly possessed the Crimson Gem (setting human-lesser primate relations back 100 years in the process. Sorry Jane Goodall!). For some reason all the mass destruction pissed off the federal government, and they've sent their new FDA-approved mutant team to arrest us – the Uncanny X-Men! How could they? Me and Wolverine are bros! Kitty and I used to play Street Fighter II together! And Storm... well, okay Storm never liked me, I get why she'd want to beat me up.
Two of your favorite Uncanny teams are about to collide, so buy the book! There will be words and action, betrayals and romance, complex interpersonal relationship development and fart jokes. And in the end, I think we'll all learn a valuable lesson about what really matters - being an X-Family!

“PULL MY FINGERS”
A Nightmare on Graymalkin Lane***
And they say guys with horribly disfigured faces stick together. Nope! Freddy Kruger is on the loose (the original Robert Englund version, not that Jackie Earle Haley reboot (although he was the bomb in Watchman yo!)), and he's targeting the dreams of teenage mutants! After barely surviving a nightmarish encounter, my girl X-23 is all hepped up on no-doze goofball, which makes her even more angsty and potentially lethal than usual. If she goes back to sleep, she might not wake up... Well I can't allow that to happen! I'm going in. Mix me a NyQuil™ and roofie colada and throw in a DVD of NCIS Season 12... I need to fall sleep, pronto! I'm hoping that not even Freddy can handle a mind as fragmented as mine.... but I may have just made a fatal mistake!

“MARRIED... WITH DEADPOOL” Part One “SHOE SALESMAN WITH A MOUTH”
***A Nightmare on Graymalkin Lane***
So, bear with me because its all kind of fuzzy. Last issue I decided to pick a fight with Freddy Krueger on his home turf (My dreams!). It went pretty much as badly as you might expect, and then got a whole lot worse. Sure, he could slice and dice me to his infernal heart’s content, but they don’t call me the "guy who don’t die" for nothin’! (Nobody really calls me that now, per se, but I'm trying to make it happen). Unable to finish me off, Freddy did what he knew I most feared... he crept through my subconsciousness, killed my identity, and replaced it with a nightmare! Left on the outskirts of Chicago with no knowledge of who or how kick-ass I really am, as far as I know now I’m a below-average guy named Wade that makes minimum wage selling women’s shoes! But at least my co-worker isn’t so bad. He once scored four touchdowns in a single game, and he plans on taking me to the nudie bar later. His name’s Al Bundy, and I think I've got a new best friend! But the question is, as he hands me the latest issue of Big'uns, has my inner Deadpool finally found peace? Do I even want to go back? • Issue comes with a free NO MA'AM membership insignia!

Too bad her first mission leading Force Works is going to end up the team's last! (Wait, what???) The Hypno-Hustler has really stepped up his game, causing the already unstable populous of downtown Chicago to go on an ultraviolent bender! Only the Juggernaut's helmet can keep the Hustler out of his head, but can he fight the rest of the team and every citizen of Chi-Town??? And what happens when the Uncanny X-Men show up?

Al Bundy and I (the Shoe-Salesman with a Mouth, Wade Wilson!) have finally perfected our pitch for a reboot of the classic series “Psycho Dad!” Can we get to the Twentieth Century Fox Television studios with our pilot when a full-scale riot breaks out in Al's home town?
