Fear Itself: Deadpool (Issue #1 - 2 of 3)With the Worthies of the Serpent at large, spreading much fear to nourish their master for the impending battle against Odin, and every superhero tasked with protecting the vulnerable people from those hammer-wielding monstrosities and more importantly themselves, under such circumstances, it would seem no one would be sparing the measliest of moments to ponder on what exactly the much notorious Deadpool is up to at the moment. Well, one can say without much doubt it certainly is anything than heroic in the least in nature.
As an attempt to exploit the ongoing situation for the mercenary's personal gain, Deadpool had decided to peddle services for protection against any one of the Worthies, one in particular, Juggernaut who ironically enough rammed through the wall of a house in which he was trying to convince the owners into hiring him as security adviser at the time. Everything went up in flames, literally, when a van blew up, courtesy of a bazooka wielding silhouette, and out fell a hammer that resembled largely those carried by the Serpent's savage minions. What more would anyone expect from Deadpool than, in the event of something exploding and spitting out a suspicious looking hammer, fashioning it into something convincing enough to deceive an exceptionally dim-witted super-criminal under the guise of a walking walrus into thinking that he is also one of the Worthies, and setting him up so as to convince everyone in town he was capable of beating one of 'them'? Did I mention werewolves?
Deadpool's humor never grows old on me. Throw in the Walrus's degree of idiocy, and you've got yourself a whimsical ride through the pages of a comic book that would surely tickle your funny bone. Contrasted against the solemnness of Marvel's event of the year, it was quite a release from all that bloodshed and pandemonium, both of which our mercenary here does it typically with style, not to mention more explosives.
