Panel 1 - A desert island missile launch area.  On the left, advancing toward us, WOLVERINE, CABLE, FANTOMEX, and PSYLOCKE, brandishing claws, oversized laser shotguns, SigSauers, and samurai swords, led by DEADPOOL, wielding a heavy assault rifle.  On the right, foreground, is BARON VON STRUCKER, surrounded by generic HYDRA soldiers.  DEADPOOL however, is looking up in the sky, holding his rifle low and not really pointing at anything.  Steam lines radiate from his head in frustration.

CAPTION:  Suddenly, Cable and X-Force spring into -

DEADPOOL:  Oh, for the luvva...CU-U-UT!!!


Panels 2 through 6:  Head and shoulders shot of DEADPOOL.  He is talking to the 4th-wall me, the writer.

Panel 2:
DEADPOOL (pointing angrily at 4th-wall me):  HEY!  Writer guy!

DEADPOOL:  HEY!!!

CAPTION (4th-wall me):   ...uh, me?

Panel 3:
DEADPOOL (head forward with "attitude"):  I don´t see any other balding failures with noisy sinuses...

DEADPOOL:  I mean, seriously, dude, what the hell?!?

CAPTION (4th-wall me):  What?

Panel 4:
DEADPOOL (pointing at Panel 1 above him with a "OMG" expression):  Oh-come-ON!  Look at this!  A whole ThoughtBalloons(TM) week dedicated to moi...

DEADPOOL:  And this is it?  Me and Hydra?!?


CAPTION (4th-wall me):  Well, now, I...


Panel 5:
DEADPOOL (finger to his "duh" face):  "Cut off one head, and two more doopity-doo!"

CAPTION (4th-wall me):  Hey, look, I'm a little off my game right now.  We all just moved back to the US.  We've been living with my mother...

Panel 6:
DEADPOOL (pleading mixed with concern):  Whoa.  The "Iron Lady", huh...?

DEADPOOL:  ...

DEADPOOL:  Well, listen, do you think we could just give it a little more gusto this time?  From the top?


Panel 7:  A desert island missile launch area tiki bar.  On the left, advancing toward us, WOLVERINE, CABLE, FANTOMEX, and PSYLOCKE the SWEDISH BIKINI TEAM, brandishing claws, oversized laser shotguns, SigSauers, and samurai swords pom poms and massage oil, led by DEADPOOL, wielding a heavy assault rifle large big-mouthed bass.  On the right, foreground, is BARON VON STRUCKER death-staring TAYLOR SWIFT, surrounded by generic HYDRA soldiers koalas with jetpacks and laser blasters.  DEADPOOL shakes his trout menacingly at TAYLOR with verve and excitement radiating from his pores.

CAPTION:  Suddenly...

DEADPOOL:  OH YEAH!!!!

  1. I'd like to take this moment to give you a long clap. Damn what a great page! The circular narrative from panel 1 to 7 is a great visual gag and one that works just as well written in the script with your use of the crossed out words. Also the 4th wall breaking stuff, was honest and so funny.

    I have nothing else to add. This is hilarious, well structured and right on the money.
