When you need some security, you need to get Deadbolts! When the Avengers are away, all you have to do is pay!

With this great sales pitch in mind Deadpool makes some phone calls to start a work-for-hire hero group. He first calls Domino and asks if her Hotshots crew wants to join. He figures he might as well include her because if not she will just steal his idea anyway like she did with Mercs for Money. Domino and Outlaw are in and Black Widow owes them a favor so says she might show up if they need her help. Deadpool thinks he doesn't need her help but he does need some of that marketing appeal. Deadbolts -- featuring Black Widow from the hit Avengers Endgame! Diamondback also owes Domino favors but not enough to work with Deadpool. That's fine, she wasn't in the movies. In fact people might just get confused and think a Power Man villain was part of his crew.

He then calls up his old Mercs for Money gang but lets them know they just don't have name recognition. Why do they think they couldn't even get a twelve issue volume going? So Foolkiller, Solo, and Terror will take become the Beetles! Super marketable, especially when he gets a fourth Beetle by calling up Janice Lincoln! Terror is insulted and says he has been around longer than Deadpool has. Deadpool let's Terror know he is a f#@$ing Shadowline comics character and nobody even knows what that is so he should be grateful to be on the printed page. Deadpool also says Solo and Foolkiller should agree because the Beetle suits will have special abilities so finally they can have some powers. Solo tries to explain that he actually has a super useful teleportation ability but Deadpool tells him compared to Magik he sucks and not to ever bring it up again and to use the Beetle suit. Deadpool doesn't call Stingray because Stingray is a narc, and he doesn't call Slapstick for reasons that should be obvious to anyone that knows anything about Slapstick.

He then figures since he is inviting the other Beetle he might as well invite the Superior Foes since he knows she is good buddies and likes those guys. He calls Boomerang and says he doesn't know what all went down with that Superior Foes stuff, like most people he didn't read it, but he figures it must have been great. Boomerang says he is on board with Deadpool's idea and also says he wants to tell Wade about a great idea he has of stealing Silvermane's head. Wade says that sounds awesome and they will do that. Deadpool still needs a tenth member because "Overdrive wasn't important enough to be on the draft list" and so he calls up Porcupine because Roger is a nice guy and will say yes even though he shouldn't.

Introducing the Deadbolts!
Deadpool
Domino
Boomerang
Outlaw
Shocker
Black Widow
Beetles - (Foolkiller, Solo, Terror)
Beetle (Janice Lincoln)
Speed Demon
Porcupine


This draft was super successful for me. I got literally every character I wanted except Diamondback who got picked TWICE before I could get her. I had to go with Porcupine instead at the end but he was made a fun character in Spider-Woman so I'll take it.

Hope all is well with Wings who hasn't been online for the past 20 days. Thank you to all the players who dragged the draft to the finish line anyways!

Go for it. I did a similar thing when I moderated one of the drafts but was not participating.

Thanks for the concern, UrbanExplorer and apologies to everyone for disappearing. Life in general has just been getting on top of me lately in all respects, and I kind of just retreated from everything in order to cope, both online and IRL. I'm not all the way there yet mental health-wise (spent all day today psyching myself up over a single email I had to send) but I'm trying to open myself back up again. Unfortunately, the draft suffered because of that, and that's on me, but thank you all for participating and coming up with some stellar lineups and sorry again for leaving you all to your own devices.
