Description: "Desperate to repair his reputation as a master mercenary, Deadpool challenges one of the most dangerous fighters on the planet to a no-holds-barred fight to the finish. With a captive audience watching from the sidelines, Deadpool tackles the Taskmaster with both hands and feet literally tied together."
This is a Marvel Universe two-pack that includes Deadpool and Taskmaster, as well as a reprint of Cable and Deadpool issue thirty-six.
Deadpool includes a knife with a belt sheath, a pistol and non-removable leg holster, and two katana swords that can sheath on a removable back-harness, as well as twenty-six points of articulation.
Taskmaster includes a sword and sheath, a bow, a small pistol and holster, and a shield, as well as twenty-four points of articulation.
The comic book enclosed in the two-pack is Cable and Deadpool issue thirty-six. The plot is that Deadpool, who is eager to repair his career as a mercenary, holds hostages as an audience and challenges Taskmaster to a battle while Deadpool has his hands and arms tied together. Deadpool beats Taskmaster, but in the end, the audience is not impressed. Taskmaster complains that Deadpool lost because Taskmaster stabbed him through the chest with a sword, but Deadpool's healing factor saves his life.
In the fictional Marvel Universe, Taskmaster is a mercenary who can mimic the skills and movements of any person. Deadpool is a man named Wade Wilson who entered Weapon X, the Canadian project that created Wolverine, to save his life from cancer. Deadpool was horribly scarred and dubbed a failed experiment, and was subject to severe torture and was a witness to death and destruction. The other "failed experiments" would make a "deadpool" to predict which one would be killed next. Deadpool escaped, killed all the scientists and workers at the Weapon X program, and began a career as the "Merc With A Mouth," Deadpool, with a healing factor identical to Wolverine that keeps Deadpool's cancer in check.
I am very, very impressed with this two-pack. Though it may come with a reprint comic book as opposed to display bases, the two figures more than make it a great buy.
Deadpool has a very nice paint job, and a comical facial expression that suits the character quite well. He can store all of his accessories on his body, which is very nice, and he seems to hold them all quite firmly, more or less. Plus, he includes two katanas (of course), a hunting knife, and a pistol (not sure what model). He's also nicely articulated and comes with a lot of original pieces not recycled from old figures, which is nice.
Taskmaster also has fantastic, vibrant paint apps on his costume, which add a lot of excitement to the cleverly recycled parts making up his mold. He can hold all of his well painted...[See More]
