Signs point to yes . . . maybe. I know covers can be misleading. Way has been teasing that Deadpool does not particularly care for the Punisher/Elektra hook-up. Whether Deadpool's displeasure is motivated by jealousy or because he feels protective of Elektra remains to be seen.
Obviously they haven't had enough interaction for us to tell yet, but part of me is thinking that Deadpool may be feeling more protective than jealous.
See, this right here is why I hate Thunderbolts to a degree. We get a good interview, amazing covers, and I start thinking about how great things could be. Then I get the issue.
Obviously, Deadpool's just about to put Frank's shirt through the wash.
I'm with you people, but i'm tired of this constant teasing and seeing no results. I hope Way changes his way of writing in the next arc. I see here many people seeing Phil Noto almost as a savior of this comic, yeah his art is better than Dillon's but i assume that things will be the same if Way writes the same way as he did in this current arc. I hope i'm wrong.
Or maybe Punisher needs help.
What if a child dreamed of becoming something other than what society had intended? What if a child aspired to something greater?
*Wade shockingly discovers and interrupts Elektra licking the sweat off Franks face in a dark corner of Thunderbolts HQ*
Wade: WTF!!! STOP THAT NATCHOS, THAT CAN'T BE HYGENIC!
Wade: Whatever! HEY, SKULLBOY!!!
*Frank turns to face off with Deadpool. Killer stares from both sides*
Deadpool: I was just about to put a load on and from the looks of it that shirt is filthy. Hand it over, I'll stick it in the wash.
*Frank takes off shirt and hands it to Wade*
Wade: Alrighty then. As you were. Nice moobs, skullboy. I thought Noto was pencilling this one but it looks like Dillon strikes again.
Wade: Oh, one more thing.
*Frank just stares at him*
Wade: I have realised that I feel very protective of Natchos, so wear a condom. No glove, no love! You kids have fun now. See ya!

I find this is a bit backward, really. I've often thought Punisher's natural inclination would be to try to kill Deadpool, not the other way around.
I really hope this book gets better. I already stopped buying it, and only read it if i can find a copy at Barnes and Noble to read for free. Hell, even then I still find none of the characters interesting except for Deadpool. He's always got the best lines. All the other characters seem to lack personality. I think Candid Rook wrote a story better than Way has so far in this book. I hate misleading covers. Deadpool kills the Marvel U had great covers, but the rest of the book was trash. I can only hope DP gets stabby with Punisher.
