    Alt Obituaries Deadpool

    Already a highly competitive year and we're barely into March. Jean-Pierre Pernaut wasn't just a name I landed on for the Deathlist Cup, I also had him in the Alt Obituaries Deadpool. I see at least one other person had him and I suspect others may have, as well. Edit: Pernaut is a duet.
