Deadpool has a surreal conversation with a dead shark as he tries to figure out what to do next with his mixed-up life. When a cruise ship crosses paths with his floundering pirate ship, he is taken aboard and given medical attention. Unfortunately, one of the crew recognizes him and he has to jump ship off the coast of San Francisco. Relaxing in a bar after a furious bout of roller blading and trying to blend in with the California lifestyle, DP sees Cyclops on TV offering to take in all mutants at Utopia which Pool interprets as his own personal invite to join the X-Men.
