Axel-In-Charge: Alonso & Duggan Dissect 25 Years of "Deadpool"
I’m Alex. Most of the writers here at CBR have a beat, a publisher or specific field that they oversee, but my beat is broader and more informal.

I drink too much tea, meditate far too little, and still intend to one day fulfill my childhood ambition of living in a treehouse
