History: (Deadpool & the Mercs for Money I#4 (fb) - BTS) - The truck stop Antos' took the slogan of "The Best Cheesecake on the Road."






(Deadpool & the Mercs for Money I#4) - After traveling to deliver a Rigellian Recorder to the Ozarks Kingpin, the Mercs for Money and their driver, Highwayman, stopped at Antos' to refuel and Highwayman informed the Mercs that they needn't stay with him there, as truck stops were like holy ground to truckers and no one would start trouble there. Solo reminded Highwayman that they were hired to ensure the Recorder made it to the Ozarks Kingpin and that meant not losing sight of the cargo, adding that he didn't think the mercenaries that had been attacking them every step of the trip cared about the "laws of the road." Inside Antos', the other Mercs for Money grabbed a bite to eat from Antos' buffet and discussed whether they were doing the right thing by delivering the Recorder to the Ozarks Kingpin. During the discussion, Taskmaster jumped through a window in Antos' and kicked Solo's drink from his hand, prompting a fight. Solo kept Taskmaster distracted long enough for the other Mercs to get outside and secure the cargo but the Mercs ran into the luchadore Zapata Brothers outside, who were assaulting the Highwayman. Before the Mercs could react, they were attacked by the wrestling-themed Bruiser. A multi-pronged fight ensued until Highwayman managed to slam through the wall of Antos' with his truck, hitting Bruiser. While their opponents were down, the Mercs for Money jumped back into Highwayman's truck and beat a speedy retreat, unaware that Evil Deadpool had stowed away in the back of the truck during the commotion.
