    The Zombie-Verse

    Deadpool would be trapped in a universe overrun by zombies when he tries to return the decapitated, zombie head of Deadpool to that dimension. Several AIM soldiers pursue Deadpool into that dimension because they want the zombie head as a weapon. A hot scientist named Professor Veronica persuades the merc with a mouth to capture a super that has been infected by the zombie virus so they can test their new serum. Deadpool and his decapitated buddy made some alterations on his costume and met with a zombie infected El Águila, Absorbing Man, Armadillo and Cypher outside.

    Deadpool lures the Cypher zombie to an isolated area where he is captured for the scientist. Deadpool is unaware that Absorbing Man followed them and learned the whereabouts of their hidden passageway to the surface. The next day, Deadpool is being escorted by Dr. Betty, Professor Veronica and company to the surface when they are confronted by El Aguila, Armadillo and Absorbing Man. The AIM soldiers that followed Deadpool to this universe want to finish their mission and retrieve the zombie head. They confront Deadpool and his group but they are attacked by the El Aguila zombie and company. The AIM soldiers flee so Armadillo and El Aguila chase after their meal. Some of the AIM soldiers think their safe when El Aguila electrocutes one soldier and starts eating his arm. The rest of the AIM soldiers fire away and the El Aguila zombie is shredded in a hail of gunfire.
