OUR STORY SO FAR:
After a few early appearances as just another generic, disposable villain, Wade finally gets his foot in the door of the Marvel universe, well sort of. At this stage in the game, nobody knows for sure if he has any long-term appeal. But not to worry, the writers are on his side. They're working tirelessly (except when they're resting) to get him immersed into endless continuity porn (that's a real term, just look it up).
In our last installment of X FORCE, we found out that Deadpool had secretly infiltrated Cable's X Force, by way of his shape-shifting girlfriend Vanessa, who had kidnapped the real Domino and was hard at work impersonating her. But she took to the role a little too well and started to sympathize with the enemy.
When Deadpool found out, he went to smack his b**** up. And smack her up he did, but that was probably a bad idea (ya think?) because it only caused her to give up her loyalties to Tolliver (WOMEN! UGH!).
Then there were a few issues where some other stuff happened, but since Deadpool wasn't in them, I didn't bother to read them and spent the time watching reruns of MAUDE. So we're just gonna jump into the middle of the story here just as Cable and Copycat have made their way into Tolliver's secret hideout, and find out that the prisoner in his dungeon is....

And so, Cable and Domino go off to do just that. Tolliver tries to escape in a helicopter, but Cable blows it up and then disappears. Domino jumps clear of the explosion and is left to find her own ride home (boy, that Cable is such a gallant rescuer!). But at least she's been freed from the dungeon, and Tolliver, Copycat, and Deadpool have all been eliminated......or have they?
