Who is Deadpool?
Deadpool (Wade Winston Wilson) is a fictional character, a mercenary and anti-hero appearing in comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by writer/artist Rob Liefeld and writer Fabian Nicieza, Deadpool first appeared in The New Mutants #98 (1991).
Characteristics of Deadpool
Deadpool is obviously one of the wackiest characters in Marvel Comics. He’s a Merc with a Mouth – meaning he never stops talking. He’s also a master of martial arts, swordsmanship and marksmanship. Deadpool also has excellent agility, reflexes and a healing factor that quickly repairs any physical damage.
Powers and Abilities
Deadpool possesses superhuman strength, speed, and resistance and has the unnatural ability to heal rapidly from any injury. He has a sharp wit and signature sense of humor, which he often uses to his advantage.
He also carries a variety of weapons, including a pair of katanas and an arsenal of guns. The katanas are the only weapons Deadpool has that are capable of killing him, since his healing factor does not protect him from their effects.
Abilities of Deadpool
- MCF: Standing for Master Combat Fighter, Deadpool is a master of virtually every known martial art and weapon available across the multiverse.
- Marksmanship: Deadpool is an extraordinary marksman who is capable of hitting targets from remarkable distances with various firearms.
- Enhanced Strength: Deadpool possesses superhuman strength that is superior to that of peak-level humans, allowing him to lift, press, or push objects that way beyond the range of what a normal human would be capable of.
- Paraphernalia: Deadpool is often depicted as having access to a variety of weapons, including swords, guns, and knives, as well as a vast array of ridiculous contraptions.
Deadpool is one of the most popular Marvel characters, and for good reason. His unique personality, incredible healing factor and mastery of weapons make him an unforgettable antihero. The box office blockbuster “Deadpool” has taken the world by storm in its wake. A unique comic book adaptation, the movie features the loveable antihero Wade Wilson, known as Deadpool, as he sets out on a mission of revenge after being subjected to a gruesome experiment.
The movie has received rave reviews from many critics, from its gripping story line to its dynamic characters. It was directed by new- comer Tim Miller and stars Ryan Reynolds in the role of Wade Wilson. Reynolds is not new to superhero roles, as he previously starred in the hit “Green Lantern”.
The film’s success is due in part to its violent, yet comical tone. Director Miller makes sure to capture the spirit of the comic book befitting of a character like Deadpool. The action sequences are plentiful, but there is also room for drama and romance. In addition, there is a plethora of visual effects to stimulate the audience.
The soundtrack is just as catchy. Composed by Marco Beltrami, the songs help to fuel the action and the overall atmosphere of the movie.
This is a movie that has plenty of heart and soul. Deadpool turns into a reluctant leader as he finds himself in deep trouble. He quickly assembles a rag-tag group of followers to help him on his mission, adding another dimension to his character.
It’s not hard to see why this movie is such a hit. It’s full of action and adventure, with plenty of laughs and heart-warming moments. It’s a great way to end the year and it will surely be remembered as one of the greatest superhero movies ever made. For comic book fans, there is no bigger sensation in the medium than Deadpool. Created by artist Rob Liefeld and writer Fabian Nicieza for Marvel Comics, the Merc with a Mouth has become one of the most popular characters in the company’s sizable array of heroes and villains.
Deadpool, a.k.a. Wade Wilson, first debuted in New Mutants #98 in 1991, having been created as an obvious “parody” of the wildly popular DC Comics character, Deathstroke. The character was a meta-commentary on comic book heroes in general, combining a self-awareness, a typically off-beat sense of humor, and a willingness to break the fourth wall.
From his humble beginnings in March of 1991, Deadpool has burst onto the comic book scene and is reluctantly loved by even his staunchest critics. In addition to his own series, he’s been featured in a variety of other titles, including X-Force, Avengers, Spiderman, and many others. He’s also loved by Marvel fans for his sometimes-hilarious dialogues, often against himself, and is even featured in his own super popular video game.
Obviously, Deadpool has been adapted for film, and the first movie, simply entitled Deadpool, was released in February 2016. Starring Ryan Reynold as the “unthinkable” hero, the movie was met with near universal praise and was even nominated for a Golden Globe.
Deadpool is one of modern comics’ most iconic characters, and it looks like he’ll remain a fan favorite for many more years to come.
