December 27th, Deadpool, Lady Death, and Thanos… (Those Wonderful Toys)

“The day my father Odin banished me from Asgard, I was bitten by a vampire and had radioactive waste dumped into my eyes. To make matters worse, my mutant ability to control weather activated just as I was hit by a blast of gamma radiation. Nah, actually, I got this way by volunteering for the Weapon X program. They promised to cure my cancer. And they cured it all right, by giving me an outrageous healing factor. Then they labeled me psychotic and tossed me into a prison lab. So I escaped and became what some people might call a ‘mercenary’. I prefer the title ‘cleaner of the gene pool’. And I’ve made a lot of good friends along the way: like Arcade. He’s always sending me to his amusement park.”  ~ Deadpool.

December 20th, Negotiator… (Those Wonderful Toys)

My name is Roger Smith. I perform a much needed job here in the city of amnesia.” ~ Roger Smith

“This place, Paradigm City, is a town of forgetfulness. One day forty years ago every person here lost all memory of what had happened before that day. But humans are adaptable creatures, they make due and go on with life. If they are smart enough to figure out how to operate machinery and electricity, they can have something of civilization. People can survive without knowing what did or didn’t happen in the past. And each day they try their hardest to do just that. The only people who regret the loss of these memories are the city’s elderly. But memories, like nightmares, can come when you least expect them.” ~ Roger Smith
