Deadpool is a male comic anti-hero that features in Marvel Comics.
Wade Wilson is a man living with cancer, who went through a procedure and made him become the Merc with a Mouth.
Dr. Killebrew told Wade that the experiment would give him regenerative powers that would last forever. (Deadpool: Sins of the Past v1 #1)
He was hired by Mr. Tolliver and paid to eliminate the Mutant Cable. Deadpool managed to ambush his quarry and even fought off several of his New Mutant students but was defeated by Domino. Rather than kill him, Cable sent the mercenary back to Tolliver for him to deal with the failure in the mission. (New Mutants v1 #98)
Cable and Deadpool
He was later hired by Warren Worthington III and dispatched to find Clan Akkaba that were operating in the shadows. (Wolverine: Road to Hell v1 #1) Wilson managed to discover their hidden headquarters and witness a ceremony made by the secret society where they performed a sacrifice in order to create a young clone of their leader Apocalypse. (Uncanny X-Force v1 #1) During the mission, he was attacked and captured with the Akkaba scientists studying him until X-Force arrived to free him where they proceeded with their mission to eliminate Apocalypse. (Uncanny X-Force v1 #2) The team consisted of Angel, Psylocke, Wolverine, and Fantomex where they pursued their target to the Moon only to fight the boy's protectors who were the Final Horsemen. Their craft was shot down on the surface of the Moon with Wade protecting Angel who was injured in the crash. (Uncanny X-Force v1 #3) He helped Warren recover with the two departing towards Ship and infiltrated it where they entered its inner chambers. Within the sanctum, they found their target only to see that Apocalypse was in the form of an innocent young boy. Psylocke and Wolverine intended to take the boy away to be raised in peace with this being opposed by Angel who wanted to kill the child before he became Apocalypse. Ultimately, he came to realise his actions namely the murder of a child and agreed with his compatriots in taking the boy away. However, Fantomex shot a bullet into the young En Sabah Nur's head thus killing the child whereupon the team was forced to quickly escape on E.V.A. before Ship teleported to a new site. (Uncanny X-Force v1 #4)
Carnage later sought to capture him in order to claim the Symbiote codex fragments left in his spine after he was host to the different Klyntar. (Absolute Carnage vs. Deadpool v1 #3)
Personality and attributes
Oyakata’s daughter gave him the nickname Chiyonosake (Translation: the White Wolf of the Rice Wine) which he loved as usually young ladies did not give him kind names. He was sometimes referred to by a nickname of Chiyo when using this name. (Deadpool Team-Up v1 #1)
Powers and abilities
Deadpool talks directly to the reader and is completely aware that he is a fictional character.
He frequented the Hellhouse that was an establishment catering to mercenary contracts with it being located in Chicago. The building was formerly Sister Margaret's School for Wayward Children that had been burned, condemned, demolished, rebuilt, then burnt again and rebuilt once more. Hellhouse was run by an elderly man named Patch who took the Nightline and distributed contracts to mercenaries. (Deadpool v1 #1)
