In Deadpool: Invisible Touch #2, the Merc with a Mouth just used a move he copied from Chris Evans’ character in the 2010 film The Losers.
WARNING: The following contains major spoilers for Deadpool: Invisible Touch #2, available now on Marvel Unlimited.
Deadpool is famed for his wild antics and his new series on the Marvel Unlimited app is no exception. While hunting the supervillain Spot, who stole a hard drive that he needs, Deadpool breaks the bodies of his enemies and the fourth wall, treating both with wanton disregard.
In his funniest (and most violent) scene, he rips off a move that Chris Evans’ character Jensen used in the 2010 film The Losers. With this technique, he absolutely wrecks some of Marvel’s toughest villains, using finger guns as his weapon of choice.
The fight takes place in the underground criminal hangout called the Bar With No Name, as depicted in Deadpool: Invisible Touch #2 by Gerry Duggan, Lucas Werneck, G Geoffo, Rachelle Rosenberg, and VC’s Joe Sabino. While hunting Spot, Deadpool teams up with Sue Storm-Richards, the Invisible Woman, who is also trying to recover the drive. She is reluctant to associate with him, given his less-than-stellar reputation, but his knowledge of the criminal underworld proves invaluable when he leads her to the supervillains’ favorite watering hole.
She infiltrates unseen, using her powers of invisibility while Deadpool questions the patrons about the Spot’s whereabouts. When the patrons turn on Deadpool, he holds up his hand with index fingers extended to look like pistols, threatening to shoot them with his finger guns.
Rhino is the first villain to attack. Deadpool takes aim at him, pretending to fire…and Rhino goes flying. Of course, it’s really the Invisible Woman’s signature force fields that hit Rhino. With her help, Deadpool convinces the outlaws to give into him, lest he blasts them with his digits. This is surprisingly similar to one of the most memorable scenes in the film The Losers.
The 2010 movie is based on the comic by Andy Diggle and Jock, published under DC’s Vertigo imprint. It follows a Special Forces black-ops unit who fake their own deaths after their handler, known only as Max, tries to have them killed. They hide out in Bolivia but eventually team up with a woman named Aisha al-Fadhil portrayed by Zoe Saldana, who claims she can help them get to Max. The group sneak back into the US and hunt down their old handler, who turns out to be bankrolling international terrorism and weapons development programs.
Chris Evans plays Captain Jake Jenkins, the team’s foolhardy, fun-loving hacker. In one of the movie’s most memorable scenes, Jensen infiltrates a corporate office building to access a computer terminal with the codes he needs. He swaggers in with upbeat Deadpool-Esque joviality, singing Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'” as he pretends to be “Skippy from tech support.” He accidentally flashes a group of women while changing in the elevator, but still manages to gain access to the office and computer terminal. However, he has to flee from security, until he is cornered near an upper-story window. Here, he turns to face the guards, holding his hands up as finger guns.
Jensen tells the guards he was given psychic powers in a government experiment, saying “they did stuff to me. Spooky stuff. Anal stuff. Turned me into a dangerous telekinetic.” When a guard tries to cuff him, Jensen “shoots” him with a finger gun. The man hits the ground immediately, followed by a second guard. As it turns out, the team’s sniper, Cougar (Oscar Jaenada) is positioned across the street and shooting the guards through the window.
While Deadpool definitely copied Jensen’s move, the parallels between these two go beyond a simple finger-banging stunt. Each character comes across as lighthearted, treating life as a joke. However, beneath their foolish exteriors, both are deceptively dangerous characters.
