INTERVIEW: Duggan's "Deadpool" Deals with the Pressures of High Profile Heroics
To show off their line of Marvel figures at the San Diego Comic Con this year, Hasbro went all out and create a huge “fight scene” diorama featuring Marvel characters of all shapes and sizes — including a few custom figures built specifically for the display.
