Cable and Deadpool #30 also sees the sees the return of everyone's favorite almost-super-team, the Great Lakes Avengers. But what does Deadpool have in store for these quasi-heroes if they refuse to register?

Then Wade pays a visit to the hero of Hell's Kitchen and ally of the fugitive Captain America, the man without fear known as Daredevil. It's the showdown of the ninja-trained wearers of red tights that you've all been waiting for.

Plus, what is Cable up to and why is he having a secret meeting with Captain America? Is the band breaking up? Will Wade be asked to take Cable down?
