    Deadpool #9 works better as an issue of Deadpool than it does as the third chapter of “Magnum Opus.” I found it to be extremely entertaining (hence the high grade), but couldn't really shake the fact that it didn't lend itself well to the whole crossover thing. It just seems like “Magnum Opus” could be (or should have been) so much more. Read Full Review

    What it boils down to, then, is that Deadpool fans are probably ecstatic over his treatment in this storyline, while T-Bolts readers may be bristling over the newly-minted team's ineptitude in a mission against someone so brazenly ridiculous. Still, as an issue Deadpool #9 does what it says on the box and provides some chuckles and cleverness along the way. Read Full Review

    They share some back and forth banter as well as some punches and kicks and as weird as it may seem the Black Widow was actually enjoying herself. Putting the fun and joking aside, she retains her loyalty to Osborn as she lays a trap that captures the wrong Deadpool. Way keeps the laughs coming as Deadpool naturally pushes his and other people’s limits. He learns to multi-task while talking on the phone, shooting at the Thunderbolts and flying a plane with his feet! The multiple voices in his head continue to push the story along while providing comic relief in interesting ways. I am mostly interested in seeing how this all wraps up because even though Deadpool is seeking love it will not stop him from collecting the money he feels he is owed. He can easily switch from being goofy to dead serious when his money is threatened. Osborn and the Thunderbolts are in for a big surprise once they figure out that there are two Deadpools. Magnum Opus concludes in Thunderbolts #131. Read Full Review
