Deadpool's First Crossover Appearance

Being confined within the pages of X FORCE wasn't getting Wade anywhere. Sooner or later, he had to start getting out and about to explore some of the other Marvel titles. He decided that he'd do cameos in some of the other popular comics of the 90s.
When that didn't work, he begged writer Fabian Nicieza to put him in another title, any title. So, Mr. Nicieza obliged by working him into the plot of the fourth issue of his imitation Punisher comic (which was actually a Captain America spinoff).

By Fabian Nicieza, Pat Olliffe, and Mark McKenna.
from NOMAD #4, August 1992

And just what do you do after a DEADPOOL encounter? Why, act out a scene from John Carpenter's movie THEY LIVE, of course.
