The Unbelievable Gwenpool #4 Review: M.O.D.O.K. + Gwenpool + Weapons = Trouble!

Last time on The Unbelievable Gwenpool, Doctor Strange helped Gwen become part of the Marvel Universe, but at the cost of M.O.D.O.K. finding out that she’s a normal teenage girl, not an assassin. Will Gwen die at the hands of everyone’s favorite mohawked machine? Seeing as the comic has more issues scheduled up until October and Gwenpool is going to be appearing in Rocket Racoon And Groot, probably not.
The comic starts off with Batroc continuing to train Gwenpool in such skills as shooting, martial arts, and tactics. There’s a beautiful shot of a M.O.D.O.K. mug slowly suspended in midair before getting shot by Gwen. 

Who knew M.O.D.O.K. had merchandise? I wonder if he goes to conventions.
Of course, it doesn’t immediately start off with M.O.D.O.K. rushing to kill Gwen. He’s smarter than that and wants to do it in a more subtle way. He sends the rest of the team out on a mission for some Atlanteans. He requests that Gwen stay behind for a meeting. They argue, with Gwen mentioning that part of her luck for surviving dangerous situations might come down to a "deus ex machina" moment. M.O.D.O.K.'s response?

Time to rename the comic "M.O.D.O.K. And His Amazing Minions!"

Wait, don't start sending angry letters! It turns out that Gwen survived the laser blast with a one-time-only shield generator! She's been buying a lot of weapons and Marvel gear with her newfound cash. (This also means that she's broke, but that's a story for another day. At least, I think it is.)

A battle ensues, beginning with quite possibly one of the funniest lines in the series so far. Unfortunately, Gwen is still fairly inexperienced and M.O.D.O.K. can stuff a ludicrous amount of weapons into his armor. Seriously, it's like the weapons themselves can be built as soon as he needs them. Maybe he stole the replicating nanobots from Phineas And Ferb. In any case, Gwen manages to hold her own by using some of the same tricks that Batroc taught her earlier in the issue. I'm not going to share the image, but one particularly gruesome moment reminds the reader that this is still, technically, a Deadpool comic. It isn't especially gory, but the sound effect implies that M.O.D.O.K.'s right eye has been grievously injured.
I have nothing funny to add. That was awesome.
Finally, Gwenpool manages to stop M.O.D.O.K. by unleashing Cecil's skull! Cecil has returned, albeit in the form of a ghost, but this is still wonderful. I love heroic ghosts. Cecil manages to muck up M.O.D.O.K.'s systems, sending him hurtling into outer space.
Wow, Marvel integrated Pokemon Go into their comics almost immediately.

The story ends with a stunned Cecil realizing that he's a ghost, Gwen introducing him to the rest of the gang, and the client who initially hired them for the Atlantean gig requesting a meeting with Gwenpool. I sense an Aquaman parody in the future!

The Unbelievable Gwenpool #4 is filled with beautiful moments and one heck of an awesome fight scene. Finally, after months of waiting, Cecil is back! Every single issue of Gwenpool has amazed me with a deft combination of goofy wit and emotiona drama. Additionally, the art is as charming as ever. I definitely recommend it. It's so nice to have a payoff to the last issue's cliffhanger. The next issue features Gwen meeting Miles Morales and I'm eager to see what happens. Who knows, given the recent events in that title, maybe Black Cat is their client.
