* IdiotBall: He's picked it up a few times. It's usually when he tries to go after superhumans who are just too far outside of his weight class. Deadpool is pretty much the upper limit that he can safely handle, and Deadpool really doesn't try to kill him because they're friends. Put him up against a heavy hitter and he's in serious trouble. A good example is when he tried to kill American Eagle, who gave his attacks a NoSell, pointed out that he really should stick to going after unpowered normals, then gave Bullseye a brutal NoHoldsBarredBeatdown.
