Cable & Deadpool #10
Written by Fabian Nicieza, Art by Patrick Zircher
Cable and Silver surfer fight. Deadpool and Cyclops provide exposition.
[Deadpool]: Well, that was the coolest expository dialogue I have ever had!
Deadpool heads off to complete his task. He’s stopped by The Cat.
[The Cat]: Wilson, if we are going to save the planet and the life of your friend—we are going to have to work together.
Deadpool, The Cat, and Cyclops gather the pieces to the device, the X-Men stop their fight with the Six-Pack when the city jerks in the air. Domino leads a group to check the gravity generators, where they discover that the generators actually just props…the city is actually held in the air by Cable’s telekensis, and he has just been defeated by the Silver Surfer.
[Cyclops]: He tricked you—all of us—into assembling this?
[Deadpool]: Tricked is a strong word. I prefer manipulated, cajoled, coerced.
[Deadpool]: Nate’s gotta have something up his sleeve. I know Cable better ‘n you do. He’s too stubborn to have this figured out.
[Cyclops]: You’re asking me to risk the lives of thousands of people—not to mention my own son—because I should trust your instincts?
[Deadpool]: No…because you should trust Cable’s.
Cyclops isn’t inclined to trust either Deadpool or Cable, and he shoots at Deadpool with an optic blast. Since they don’t have the luxury to discuss things further, so The Cat knocks Cyclops out.
[Deadpool]: That fight lasted as long as Deathlok’s last comic
The Cat hands the last piece of the device.
[Deadpool to The Cat]: You are so totally the coolest…
[The Cat]: But how do you plan to get it to Cable in time?
[Deadpool]: We got this whole Don’t ask, don’t tell thing goin’…not that there’s anything wrong with that…bodyslide by two…
[The Cat]: Don’t ask, don’t tell…? …oh…OH…
Deadpool bodyslides with Cable to Cable’s Safehouse #14 in Switzerland.
[Deadpool]: You sure about this?
[Cable]: Yes, Wade…now—use it—!
[Deadpool]: Geez, Nate, you so totally suck…
Deadpool uses the device on Cable. It’s connected with Cable’s teleport matrix to cut out portions of his brain to surgically remove the parts that control his higher telekinetic and telepathic abilities. He uses the last of his powers to lower Providence into the ocean as a new island, and share with everyone his vision for a peaceful future.
[Deadpool has placed Cable’s head in his lap]
[Deadpool]: Nate…c’mon…wake up…say something to get me mad… Tell me “According to Jim” is the best sitcom in television history. Tell me The Knack sucks something, Nate… was it worth it…?
