Volume 1: We Don’t Need Another Hero
Landau, Luckman, and Lake want Deadpool to rebuild himself as a hero – but he’ll be lucky to pull himself together as he is! His healing factor’s down, and the only thing that’ll juice it up is a dose of the Incredible Hulk’s blood – administered by the Weapon X alumnus who helped make Deadpool what he is in the first place! Not even mad science can mend a torn heart, though, as Deadpool’s infatuation with X-Force’s Siryn is challenged by another! Then, betrayals both real and imagined on all sides set Deadpool up for a grudge match with archenemy T-Ray, one that leaves our horrific hero stabbed in the heart both figuratively and literally! As low as he’s ever been, can he really rise to the challenge Landau, Luckman, and Lake have set up for him? But even as he’s recovering from defeat by his worst enemy, his oldest enemy is on the way, cutting through Weapon X alumni! Plus: The Merc with a Mouth meddles with a classic Lee/Romita Spider-Man story, with both versions featured here!
This was literally my first bind. Since I already had trades for Deadpool’s first two mini series I decided not to bind them. In hindsight that was a mistake.
