Two more characters from the Deadpool universe will be joining the Merc with a Mouth in High Moon's upcoming Deadpool game, according to a post on Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld's personal website citing the February issue of Official Xbox Magazine.
According to Liefeld, telepathic X-Man Cable will be featured in the game. Deadpool and Cable starred alongside each other in the Cable & Deadpool comic book series that ran from 2004 to 2008. In the series, Cable tries to use his mutant telekenetic powers to better the world while Deadpool, being hired out for miscellaneous jobs which sometimes put him in Cable's path, both helps and hinders him in various humorous ways.
The game will also include a re-imagined version of the entity Death in female form, whom Deadpool is fascinated with. According to a magazine scan posted to Liefeld's website, Death will give Deadpool a set of missions to complete. In the comics, Death and Deadpool develop a mutual infatuation that results in the Titan Thanos separating them and cursing Deadpool with immortality.
At New York Comic Con 2012, it was also confirmed that another of Liefeld's created characters, gun-toting mutant Domino, would appear in the game. Domino originated in the X-Men offshoot X-Force, and appeared in the Cable & Deadpool comics.
Deadpool will be released this year for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
