Prelude to Deadpool Corps 2

The origin of Kidpool revealed!

A nice story with tongue firmly planted in cheek. Seriously, I laughed hardily when I saw a lecherous Chuck Xavier try out toupees to try and impress Emma Frost. Chuck needs to be in more Afros. And his statement that he'll have to find his look and then plant a false memory in her mind was classic. And that's screech a few pages until the end of the book. "WILSON!!" indeed.

This book was a great excuse to go bananas with the characters of the X-Men and Gischler does a good enough job. Is his world horribly dark given the callousness of the "adults" in the book? Absolutely. However, its humor more reminiscent of Clerks than anything else.
