Synopsis
After assisting a revolution in Bolivia (and getting paid in revolutionary bucks), Deadpool heads back to merc central to have words with Patch. Pool's next mission takes him to Antarctica to tangle with Sasquatch and blow up a gamma research station in the process. Finding out that the melting gamma core will irradiate the entire southern hemisphere, Deadpool fixes the problem and saves the day. DP is approached by Zoe and Noah and offered a position with Landau, Luckman and Lake but he quickly turns them down as being a good guy isn't exactly his style.
