Strangely, Uncanny Avengers #6 is one of the best Deadpool titles out now. The Unity Squad hunts the, who has Professor Xavier’s brain power. Deadpool teamed with Quick Silver ironically fills in for Steve Rogers. “Having a mission helps keep a man on the right path,” he says. Of course, we’re still talking about Deadpool here: “I’m trying to live up to Logan’s legacy—by killing everyone he would kill…”

The plot of Uncanny Avengers #6 has a ludicrous side, as Dirk Garthwaite/Wrecker is released from prison and heads directly to the former Avengers mansion, which unknown to him has been turned into a theme motel. Now Deadpool and Quicksilver have to stop him.

Uncanny Avengers #6 is decently told and contains characters put to good use. Deadpool’s resolution to the Wrecker problem is clever and surprisingly non-violent. The page in which, under a canopy of Medusa’s hair, the queen talks in private to Synapse is effective and elegant.

Uncanny Avengers #6 artist Carlos Pacheco, is backed up by an inking team who ensure the artwork is effective is seamless. Every panel is rich and alive. Faces are super-expressive, especially those of the surprised role-playing hotel guests.

Uncanny Avengers #6 is well-executed romp. Never feeling like a turn of the screw setting up the coming big boss battle. Uncanny Avengers #6 stands on its own as good story should.
