First Appearance: Deadpool: Too Soon#6 (digital comic, February, 2017)
(Deadpool: Too Soon#6 (fb) - BTS) - An "official
baseball league" was established of teams composed entirely of
multiversal super-powered beings (presumably of similar capabilities).
This included a team of various Wolverines or Wolverine-derived people
called the "Seething Snikters" and a team of Spider-Men or
Spider-powered people dubbed the "Amazing Arachnids". They enjoyed a
friendly rivalry and appeared to play according to standard rules with
[a] Sleepwalker acting as umpire. The organization, rostering, range
and means of access are unrevealed.
(Deadpool: Too Soon#6) - On Earth-616/Prime, Deadpool
tracked down a list of potential murder victims he was associated with,
which led him to find Spider-Ham in Central Park, New York, playing a
multiversal league game as part of the Amazing Arachnids against the
Seething Snikters. Disguised as a novelty/popcorn vendor, Deadpool
tried to warn Spider-Ham of impending danger, but the other baseballers
attacked him, especially the more aggressive Snikters, for interrupting
the game. Deadpool managed to escape their wrath.

Given the multiversal nature of the Seething
Snikters' members, it's almost impossible to clearly identify which
Wolverines or Wolverine-derived characters are from; likewise for the
Amazing Arachnids. The designations given are ASSumed, but it needs to
be remembered that they are also drawn from different time periods
(hence I identified Weapon X from the Age of Apocalypse (Earth-295)
instead of the Earth-51518 (Secret Wars) domain, given the 295 version
later changed appearance, but is the more familiar version).
Likewise, Spider-Man 2099 is from the main 2099 universe, rather than
the odd Timestorm universe (Earth-96099). Furthermore, it wouldn't
surprise me if Wolverine from an earlier
period of Earth-616 is in there (but later forgot about it/memory wiped
- again). Special
thanks to my fellow Appendix Masters of the Obscure (notably Jeff,
Stuart and Jacob) for helping identify the characters.
Initially I thought that maybe Reed Richards may have
helped assemble multiversal collaboration, as whimsical as it might be,
but he was still missing at this point in the wake of Secret Wars. So
maybe Peter Parker gained access to one of Richards' multiversal
bridges and established it. However, it could just as easily have been
started by someone from another dimension, such as the baseball-keen
Johnny Storm from Earth-20051 using a fine-tuned Probability
ASSuming the baseball played here followed usual
rules, there would have been at least nine multiversal members per side
(plus supporters). Presumably, the matches are held on different
Earths, or at least those with viable baseball diamonds. I'm guessing
it's also limited to American residents and those from nations keen on
baseball (such as Japan) and the use of powers are ruled out as much as possible. A Moon Knight team would be interesting,
probably with a lot of in-fighting, until they play together in synch,
then watch out!
Unfortunately, given Deadpool's delusions, I'm not
entirely convinced that this actually happened. An "official"
multiversal baseball league of teams divided by characters (playing
publicly in Central Park, no less) is a quirky
idea that needs a little back-up with a reference elsewhere. And surely
there would be a Deadpool team...?
