"Sweep."


We've referenced that line from Deadpool #2 before, way back in 2007: "...the nigh-indefensible broadsword of the Black Knight!" Taskmaster says it, while using skills copied from the Knight; but I didn't realize until years later that Deadpool had already faced the Knight himself, in Avengers #366. But we'll discuss the Knight more next time.

Dormammu seems to just pull the Knight out of nowhere to be his champion today; but I suspect while he's fronting for Lord Chaos, Dormy has made plans, contingencies, strategies. Like the Joker in the Dark Knight, he's the anarchist that's planned out everything. Meanwhile, it seems like Odin was two guys short until Pool and Kurt happened by; he may be winging the whole thing for Master Order.

Let this be a lesson to you Odin! Stop screwing over your own people for a change!

Oh, and the Black Knight seems to have a slight...grudge going there.

After going back and checking out your previous post on Avengers#366, I know get why 'Pool would want to fight Dane, but Kurt? Is it because Kurt's something of a swordsman himself, so he wants to pit his skills against Dane's?
