What is this Oliver Queen is on trial for murder, he has gone cross country to try and stop the evil bank, the Ninth Circle. Recently he has learned his mom is still alive. With so many twists in his life and his trial coming up, can Oliver Queen survive?

Inside the place Oliver finds the information he needs, as he is leaving he see's the ship taking off. His mom left him there. Black Canary has a tracker on him and goes after Oliver.

Final Thoughts: The issue was interesting, it was a middle arc for sure. No real action but tons of character development and twists. As always Juan's art is fantastic and top of the line. I am awaiting the end of this story arc.
In total I give this issue at 7/10. It wasn't the best, but it told the story it had to tell.

What is This? Deadpool, Everyone's favorite Merc with a Mouth. He's currently the most hated person. After killing Agent Coulson and countless others. He decides it's best to cut ties and work on being alone.
The Review The issue opens with Cable being held by the Time Variance Authority. Hes's awaiting trial, seeming left his arm in the past. We see a montage as deadpool tracks down TVA agents. Learn their location, and time travels there using Cable's missing arm.
As Deadpool fights his way inside the base, Cable is pleading with the guard, that he is the only one who can save them. Cable is able to call his future self. He tells him, Deadpool's lost every thing. A man who loses everything is hard to beat. Find a way to lose.
Deadpool has Cable dead to rights. Cable is able to take control of the Metal arm Deadpool is using. He rips the arm off deadpool and take control of it. Before shooting 'Pool in the face. Cable tells him, when he wakes up he will answer all his questions.
Final Thoughts This has been a solid run. Duggens Deadpool in all new all different Marvel, has been a bit pandering. Now that Legacy has happened and Deadpool is cutting every tie and becoming a savage again. It feels like a whole new character. I've really enjoyed this arc and can't wait for more.
