Brown: Visually, Deadpool is dynamic and light on his feet. Always in motion, jumping on or over things. Cable is large and heavy. He's built like a brick wall, and his feet are firmly planted on the ground, not going anywhere. Even though Deadpool has a full face mask, somehow his face always ends up the more expressive one out of the two of them.
I felt like Cable's facial hair situation was a good visual representation of where he is emotionally, right now. He's scruffier, and not his normal clean-cut self. When he first shows up, he has a jacket with the Askani military insignia on it. I was thinking of him as an old Vietnam War vet, not sure where he fits into the world. And of course, for a time displaced soldier like Cable, he doesn't have flashbacks, he has flashforwards.
He has been left with "precognitive flashes," but they aren't the most reliable of images. He has a pre-cog flash that Deadpool has shot a man in the middle of a Manhattan street, and tracks Deadpool down to warn him/stop him. But the odd thing is, Deadpool just saved this alleged murder victim from a Hydra kidnapping, so why would he want to kill him?
In typical Deadpool logic, he figures that should there be another attempt to kidnap him, the best way to avoid shooting Dr. Weathers is by only using his katana blades around him. As opposed to, say, moving to Tibet.
When an assassin does come to kill Weathers, hilarity and murder ensues.
Nicieza: I think it's interesting to see a Deadpool who has less of an insecure need to impress Cable and get his approval, while it's interesting to see a significantly more weary and worn Cable.
Brown: He's[the villain] a brand new character.He fits in pretty well with our cast because, like Cable and Deadpool, the more he tries to fix things, the more he seems to break them.
Brown: Definitely. I always have an awesome time drawing these characters, and I think they're the most fun when they're playing off each other.
Nicieza: We will see Preston, Bob and Shiklah in the story.
