What would be crazier than crazy? How about a crazy (allegedly) mutant mercenary fighting against a team of mutants who know how to “get things done”? They’re all good guys but they’re also merciless. In fact, nearly every one of them has been a mercenary like Deadpool but everyone knows Deadpool is the only one with a mouth (Editors Note: how do the others eat?). What’s even stranger is that Deadpool was recently on the X-Force team and saved the world like it was a file on a floppy disk! After all, like Jesus, Deadpool saves! (Editors Note: floppy disk? How old are you?)

Marvel Comics is set to do the craziest thing and have Deadpool fight X-Force. It’s probably because Deadpool is going to try to destroy something. As much as Deadpool saves, Deadpool also permenantly deletes files willy nilly and loses wedding photos like a guy who loses wedding files. “Deadpool vs. X-Force” will bring Cable and Deadpool back together in a time travelling story back to the days before the two first met. Duane Swierczynski (“The Immortal Iron Fist”) and Pepe Larraz (“Wolverine and the X-Men”) will join forces for a four issue mini-series that is probably not as crazy as it sounds but then maybe it will be? Comics readers will find out in July. For more info and a look at some preview art, continue past Marvel’s official statement below:

Marvel Announces DEADPOOL VS. X-FORCE #1 at C2E2!

90’s Mutants, muscles and munitions return for this time-jumping mini-series

 

New York, NY (April 30th, 2014) – Journey back to the days of the 1990s, when two characters debuted who would change the face of comics – Cable & Deadpool! Today, Marvel is proud to announce the exciting DEADPOOL VS. X-FORCE, a new limited series from the explosive creative team of Duane Swierczynski and Pepe Larraz! In this all-new tale, we learn of the pair’s first meeting, well before their first comic book appearance in New Mutants #98, as Cable and his soon to be X-Force race through the timestream to stop the reckless mercenary Deadpool before he destroys American history for good!

 

“Deadpool's gone back to key points in American military history: the Battle of Germantown during the Revolutionary War; Gettysburg during the Civil War, and then... well, I can't say anything else, because you know how one little musket ball has a funny of changing the course of human events,” says series writer Duane Swierczynski.

 

Harkening back to the earliest days of X-Force, this series promises to offer a time-jumping tale featuring that truly resonates the style and tone of the 90’s as Swierczynski is quick to emphasize, “OH THERE WILL BE GUNS, 90s style, although in some cases they'll be fused with some old-school killing machines.”

 

“Every script I get from Duane is a blast and a half--and then Pepe gets a hold of it and really kicks it into high gear, says series Editor Jordan D. White. “For fans of the 90s, the American Revolution, and everything in between, this is going to rock.”

 

This July, join the Cable and his band of mutants, X-Force, as they hunt Deadpool through time to prevent him from forever altering the history as we know it! Can Cable and X-Force stop him before burning down the fabric of American history? And will they set things right, even if it means their own destruction?
