The Merc with the Mouth can be interchanged during games!

Make the most of Deadpool in your games using this nifty rule….

For those ‘Clix accountants who like to keep track, we have one common, one uncommon, 5 rares, and one rare prime Deadpool that can change personalities at a moment’s notice using the Shifting Focus: Deadpool trait.

The Shifting Focus traits read: “Give Deadpool a free action if he began your turn on the map. Replace him with another character with this trait on the same click number. “

… this is your dedicated close combat Deadpool. He possesses Sidestep to get close where he is hardest to hit with Combat Reflexes on top of an 18 defense value. Mid dial he relies on Super Senses to dodge incoming hits. He is able to use Blades/Claws/Fangs for his whole 7 click dial, either possessing the power mid dial or by his special attack power No Sharper Than A Serpent’s Tooth Is…A Sword! that bookends his dial.

The Rare 033 Deadpool only has the Deadpool Corps keyword, but that’s not all the weirdness he brings to the table. His first click he is very range combat oriented with Running Shot, Energy Explosion (with 7 range and 2 targets), and Toughness. Take a hit or give him a push or Shifting Focus another Deadpool onto this pieces clicks 2 through 6 and you get something completely different with two special powers of note.


034a, b, and c Deadpool all have the same dials, Spider-Man ‘wild card’ team ability, and Agency XDeadpool Corps, and Assassin keywords; but you’ll notice some other different keywords and special powers that match the comic book each is reading. They all have Phasing/Teleport and Defend on the front half of their dials and Stealth and Super Senses on the back half along with a range value of 4.
