Deadpool has moved things around his house again, making it difficult for Blind Al to find things. When he enters the place, he’s obviously upset about something. Al thinks it’s about Typhoid Mary but Wade threatens that, if Al mentions that name ever again, bad things will surely happen to her. After that, he teleports away, moving back to the Hellhouse. There, he rounds up the place, making it clear that T-Ray doesn’t either run the place or scare him. He wants a new assignment, but this time it has to be something heroic. Patch has nothing good, but then a mysterious, hooded man enters. He claims that his land is under attack, and that their princess has been kidnapped and needs rescuing. Wade is sold and accepts the job, even though the man can’t afford him (but he hopes the princess will cover it). As they leave, it turns out that Wade has run into a trap, as the hooded man knocks him out! It appears there never was any endangered land or a trapped princess. When Wade wakes up, he finds himself trapped in a giant place. The hooded man introduces himself as… Deathtrap! He just wanted to experience something new, as his work bores him. He thought it would be nice to see how a man like Wade dies. Wade eventually frees himself by breaking his wrists so his chains break apart. When he confronts Deathtrap to finish the job, he claims to have learned enough today, and knocks Wade out. A few hours later, Wade finds himself abandoned on a rooftop of an old church. Deathtrap left a note, which says that this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Wade wonders what this was all about and what Deathtrap really wanted. He climbs down from the church, and goes home again. Meanwhile, Weasel again visits Blind Al at Deadpool’s home. They spend some time together, and talk about Wade and the fact that he keeps going to something in the house called “the box.”
