Deadpool is one of the best mercenaries on the planet. He may even be a passable Avenger -- jury's still out. But one thing's for sure -- Deadpool is a terrible team leader. Think we're lying? Ask the Mercs for Money! Deadpool's taken on a new high-paying mission to take out radioactive super villains...and his Mercs aren't nearly as immune to radiation as his healing-factored heinie is. Deadpool veteran Cullen Bunn brings us mo' mercs, mo' money and naturally, mo' problems.

In reference to the series debut solicitation, Bunn explained, "In the first issue, though, you'll be meeting a character who is probably a little unexpected, someone who might not have been seen as radioactive up until this point. We're really turning some preconceived notions on their ears with the Mercs first target."
"I'm setting some stuff up with the Recorder that will likely play a role in this new series," he continued. "The first arc of the new series, though, will be introducing a different challenge for our heroes. "
"Whereas I've approached all the Deadpool limited series that I've written as episodic adventures, writing an ongoing will give me the opportunity to do some different things with the cast. Even though we'll be seeing several different adventures in the first few arcs, I'll be seeding a number of long-term character arcs and story seeds throughout the book," he shared.
"I'd love to write a few issues focused on specific team members. The big question, though, is if the team you know from the first miniseries will stay the same or not. Not to spoil anything, but you'll see some shake-ups in the first arc," he teased.
