In the world of Deadpool, things are definitely bound to take a turn for the strange regularly. This issue of Deadpool: Assassin #6 is no exception to the rule. It rejoins the story just after Wade’s best buddy and mercenary handler, Weasel, is killed by the assassins guild as Deadpool is able to eliminate the main body of their operation.
