When you absolutely need someone killed, there's a phone book full of people that can get the job done. When you need someone with special powers killed, the list gets smaller. Now, when you need to kill Wolverine, you go to one of the few men who can get the job done. You call Deadpool. A S.H.I.E.L.D. agent called Deadpool to take Wolverine out because he has been going all over the world looking for revenge on anyone who has done him wrong in the past. Not only does Deadpool accept the contract, he accepts it with a "HELL YEAH!".
So how does one take on Wolverine? Well, unless your The Hulk, Shang Chi or Iron Fist, fighting him straight on isn't a good idea. While Deadpool is no slouch, even he knows taking Wolverine head on is a bad idea. The best way to beat Wolverine is to keep him off balance, get him annoyed, in hopes all of this will make him go beserk and become sloppy. How does Deadpool do this? First, Deadpool finds Logan in a restaurant and puts a note in Logan's fortune cookie that says "Duck. Obviously Wolverine gets suspicious and puts his uniform on. He approaches a cooked duck that's loaded with explosives, says "Duck", and, from the roof of the building across the street, Deadpool says "Goose" and blows up the duck and Wolverine goes flying out of the restaurant. Ladies and gentlemen, that is only the tip of the iceberg.
Deadpool spends the rest of the night tormenting Wolverine and having him chase him around. Deadpool blows him up, sets him on fire, drags him down the street, drops a piano on him as Wolverine is standing on a giant red "X", and so much more. Why? Oh, this has nothing to do with money. Deadpool said he'd do this for a handful of coupons. Deadpool is doing this to prove that he is just as good as Wolverine if not better.
Ever want to know the lengths to which Deadpool will take a grudge? Here it is. Deadpool ended up butt over head on this deal. He spent all of the money he was given upfront and most of his money as well. And it's not like he hates Wolverine, he's just jealous (that gets explained in the book. I won't spoil that for you). People seem to forget that for all of Deadpool's jokes and idiocy, that Wade Wilson is one of the best mercenaries in the world. You don't get that way by being a complete idiot. This is just another example of Deadpool's skills as a strategist.
While I struggle to find a flaw in this story, I can't give it a ten. The story doesn't reveal itself until the last two issues. While watching Deadpool and Wolverine fight is always fun, it took a little while to get to the point. But the pay off is totally worth it. Another great series to pick up before you go see the "Deadpool" movie.
