Cable and Deadpool

The Cable and Deadpool series has provided me with countless laughs. Deadpool is a fantastic hero that adds comedic relief to almost every page. While Cable is that serious guy that can sometimes crack a joke or two. Even though the two of them seem to detest each other sometimes, they form a pretty solid relationship later on in the series. The relationship they have is quite complex, but somehow it works for them. Cable goes to the extent of sacrificing his telekinetic powers to heal Deadpool.

Many special appearances were made from characters I didn't know, to characters that I have been a fan of. B.A.D girls, Wolverine, Captain America, and countless others join alongside the duo to save the day. It was amusing to see Deadpool interacting with the heroes or villains. Sometimes Deadpool came across as a total fanboy!

I always felt bad for Cable. He had the weight of the world on his shoulders and felt like he could never do enough.  He tried making his haven of Providence safe for all people and saving a country. However, Cable always felt like he could do more to make the world better.

If you don't know much about Deadpool or Cable I suggest maybe starting out with this series. You have tons of flashback sequences that will put things into perspective. Also many of Cable's and Deadpool's former enemies make a cameo too.
