As a teenager, Gwen Stacy went to a demonstration on radioactivity and was bitten by a mutated spider.

Figure stands approximately 8” tall and is made of cold-cast resin that’s hand painted for amazing detail.

Possibly the most skilled mercenary in the world… and definitely the most annoying. The joke-cracking, reference-making, fourth-wall-breaking, taco-eating funnyman of the cold-blooded killer set, Deadpool has long skirted the line between hero and villain, between maniac and genius, between ugly and smelly. Figure stands approximately 8” tall and is made of cold-cast resin that’s hand painted for amazing detail.
