There's something I don't want an action figure of...

Barely in today, so we'll check out a couple of scans from a minor classic: Wolverine/Deadpool: The Decoy Written by Stuart Moore, art by Shawn Crystal. When a killer robot lands in New Mexico, Wolverine is dismayed to realize it's there to hunt down the currently-deceased Jean Grey, and he can't take it alone. With the X-Men and X-Force (and presumably the Avengers, Alpha Flight, and everyone else in Wolvie's rolodex) unavailable, he's forced to call in Deadpool. That's the first of several decisions Logan will hate himself for later...
Eventually, Logan dresses Deadpool up as Phoenix, to use him to distract the robot. They defeat the robot, of course, but Deadpool makes a startling observation that isn't further addressed, while Logan thinks maybe he's finally over Jean now.

This story first appeared at Marvel.com, and you can read a chunk of it without even logging in there. I just happened to find a cheap copy, and was glad I did. Even though figuratively speaking, you really wouldn't be able to look Wolvie in the eyes for a while after this...

Didn't they kiss? Someone somewhere has had to or attempted to, make a custom figure out of this. I would be horrified and thoroughly entertained if it was:)
