Last time everything went horribly, for Deadpool. This is different from the other times that things went horribly for Deadpool, because this time it wasn't his fault. Well, it wasn't TOTALLY his fault. "Stevil" Rogers took over America, using the power of heroic jawlines, and Deadpool helped, because it's Steve Freakin Rogers. When Stevil was eventually overthrown (using a plan Deadpool was a huge part of), Deadpool somehow still got screwed over. Then, as if things couldn't get any worse... Stryfe came a-calling. It seems, he's decided it's time to call in those four lives Deadpool owes him. And the first on that list, is Cable!

Hey! Look! She said the thing! Awesome!

Issue 287 - Part One: Take Two. Deadpool has to kill Cable. But how, exactly, do you kill a guy that can be anywhere, or anyWHEN, that he chooses? Turns out, it's pretty tricky, and involves a small amount of unscheduled surgery.

This is actually pretty solid foreshadowing. Only just got that...

Issue 288 - Part Two: Waiting For Cable Installation. A* Chapter title. Solid word play. No complaints here. Except from Cable. Who got his arm cut off, and was then arrested by the TVA. Don't worry though, Cable! Deadpool is coming to rescue you. And by rescue, I of course mean kill. And by you, I of course mean freakin EVERYONE.
