Greetings True Believers! By now we have heard that Wade's beloved Bea Arthur has passed and now resides in Valhalla. (Odin's a huuuuge Maude fan) So in the spirit of Deadpool week and the passing of one of Wade's lifelong loves, I thought I present the story of when DP met another love. Theresa Rourke Cassidy aka Siryn. This is a heavy post from the Deadpool mini-series, "Sins of the Past." Yes, technically they met in an early issue of X-Force. DP snuck into X-Force's base and knocked her out. But that was when Deadpool met Siryn. This is the story of Terry and Wade meeting. Scans-heavy and enjoy!

(Madrox? Blahhh, W/T! Their love is so unbalanced and canon.)

So the main plot of this mini is that Black Tom Cassidy (X-villain, Terry's uncle and the man who raised her. Banshee's cousin.) is dying because of his mutant powers. His best pal Juggernaut busts him out. (Along with Dr. Killebrew. The doctor taking care of him and the man who made DP the merc he is today.) The good doctor informs BT that the healing factor of a certain merc could cure him. Tom's soldiers catch up to Wade while he's in a bar angsting out and scaring the normals. They attack and are gaining the upper hand when when a pair of Irish mutants swoop in....

"Annnddd they callled it puppy lovvvveee."

Banshee goes off to hunt for Tom's men and Terry and Wade start the superhuman courtship ritual way: with snark.

Oh noes! Give the man a hand! Nuk-Nuk. The next issue opens with a flashback explaining how Sean owes DP. Basically Wade saved his life during his Interpol days. In the now, Sean is talking to Agent Peyer. Another Interpol agent with a serious grudge against the merc. He plans to settle his own score. We move back to W/T who have escaped to their "love"nest after Wade passes out from blood lost.

BT finds out that Terry's with DP, he send his men in with instructions to capture her unharmed. Deadpool? Not so much.

The fight continues but guess who shows up?

W and T then run into Agent Peyer and his men. AP is determined to have his (unsanctioned) revenge against DP.

Juggs does his "Hey Kool-Aid!" impression and scares off AP and his team. Juggernaut then catches up to our duo.

I love that moment. Terry can be made of badass when she wants to be.

Wade and Terry fly off with DP struggling all the way. Wade is pissed because he didn't know Siryn and BT were family.
Meanwhile one of BT's flunkies brings back Wade's severed hand. Dr. Killebrew will use it in a attempt to cure BT. And Sean realizes that AP double-crossed him to get to DP.

Meanwhile our titlecrossed lovers talk on a rooftop.

Peyers shows up and Wade shows that he's tough (or that he has forgotten which button dodges.)

Wade KO's Peyer. Now this scan is why I've called the post "When Terry met Wade."

For me, that is the moment W/T became OTP.

Now they go assault BT's castle of evil.

Fight scene, DP runs into the good doctor and Sean and Terry get ambushed by BT.

Boss fight! BT has attached DP's hand to his arm.

I love Wade's double-jump over the bio-blast.

Wade tricks Agent Peyer one final time.

Deadpool and Juggs start fighting.
Wade loses his mask and freaks. He goes after it and Terry catches it. Big moment, Terry sees Wade's face for the first time.

Ok, serious for a moment. Imagine you're Deadpool. You're deformed, alone, been betrayed all your life, crazy as a loon. How much would that one moment/act of kindness mean to you?

Fight ensues. Deadpool has beaten Black Tom. Moment of Moral truth time.

Wade passes! He doesn't kill Black Tom.

Juggs busts in and threatens everyone.

Dr. Killebrew stablizes BT and Juggernaut swears to break him out once he's better. Then, wait a minute!?! Where's Terry/Wade/Killebrew?

So Wade skips off with the Doc. W/T remain one of my favorite pairings. Also one of my top 25 Marvel "wish it had happened this way..." They worked so well together. Ahhh, what might of been. But they did have a long and interesting (almost)relationship. I was really disappointed that DP never showed up in X-Factor. Why has Marvel forgotten this couple?

Re-Edited by the command of the Mods!

I hope everyone will enjoy!

I feel like it's kind of wrong and yet kind of right that when I heard the news about Bea Arthur, my first thought was of Deadpool.

"Whaddaya know, LOGIC stops the Juggernaut!"

The bit where she touches his face was quite sweet (even if mid-fight with the Juggernaut is a pretty bad time for it). Thanks for sharing.

Yay, love this story! Gotta say, though, for all that my mind is going WADE/TERRY CUTENESS WHEE~ I can't help boggling over Terry's costume damage between the mask scene and busting in on Tom.

To be fair, Siryn had already made Juggernaut fall off the roof by then.

this is beautiful. as a bald man, i know the pain of being ugly. i always knew wade was ugly but his pain is on display here for the first time to mine eyes. indeed marvel should revisit this pairing of souls.

Dang, Siryn's pretty here. How come all the hot nice redheads are dead or looking like frumps these days? There's no need to downplay everyone else just to make Monet look good. :/

This is a lot of pages. I'm going to need page counts and issue numbers. Remember, you can post no more than one third of an issue.

Try to avoid posting what would be a whole issue. You have it in GN form but (somewhere in my mess of a room) I have it as single issues. 30 is fine.

I actually loved the way Churchill drew Terry Cassidy in this mini, and this mini contains some of my very favorite Wade and Terry moments. I mean, how could Fabes have IGNORED this kind of chemistry in his C&DP run? Wade/Terry is the strongest and most intimate relationship that Wade has had in his adult life!

Also, that last panel with Terry and Wade, with her bra strap showing? I remember first reading this yeas and years ago, seeing that panel, and whooping with joy, because it's one of the VERY few times that I've ever seen such practicalities like the inevitability of having to wear a bra under your costume being shown in mainstream comics. That was an awesome touch and I'll always love Churchill for doing it.

Yes, but her costume damage is actually realistic, and Churchill drew her as wearing a bra underneath! When was the last time you saw a little detail like that acknowledged?

Terry knows Juggernaut, though. She grew up with him being around, and she's fought him before. I don't see Terry panicking when Cain's around, and Terry's got a very good head on her shoulders.

Oh, yeah, tons of points both for the realism and the bra. I'm just always left wondering what in the world happened.
