Deadpool was a Merc with a Mouth, subjected to a rogue experiment at Weapon X that gives him accelerated healing powers and insanity.
Most of his early life is unknown and when it comes to remember his own past he also cannot recall almost any of it. Whatever memories he still has are all very conflicting. At one instance it is what he recalls to be raised by a single mother who was very abusive to him and then in another, he remembers losing her when he was only five.
That is what he believes to be one of the primary reason why he grew up to be a criminal later in life but it turns out that, he left home in a very early age and his parents were still living in the same house they had in Canada. When he came back to that place years later, Wade Wilson could not recognize his room which his parents kept the same.
He joined U.S. Army Special Forces but had a hard time following orders, so he was kicked out soon. He is rolled into a CIA-sponsored group of mercenary assassins to kill certain targets that need not to live. These are the events that all took place before he was taken to Department K, meet Wolverine
or even becoming the anti-hero Deadpool
Whatever weird stuff Wade did back then is relatively less known but he traveled to Morocco and then Japan to be hired by a Yakuza crime boss. He was sent to get into a rival sumo-wrestling ring of his boss but ended up falling for Sazae, the young daughter of Oyakata, who was training him in wrestling for three years.
As the time came when his employer told him to kill his expert sumo wrestler mentor, Wilson backed out of this assignment that he claims to be the first time in his life. Sazae was left heartbroken after this and Wade relocated to U.S. he came to meet a mutant teenage prostitute Vanessa Carlysle, whom he would fall in love with soon.

Then he was hired to kill a British Government operative named Blind Al, who escaped before he could kill her. To get to him, Vanessa was targeted by his new employer but was saved by Zoe Culloden of Landau, Luckman, & Lake. They believed Wade was some sort of messiah who is going to prevent an oncoming cosmic threat.
Wade Wilson found out that he has been diagnosed with cancer and then broke up with Vanessa, so she could live a normal life instead of pinned with him. He even gave up on chemo treatments as he did not wished to prolong the inevitable. Then Department K contacted him with an offer to become a test subject for one of their projects.
He volunteered for the project and is given former Weapon X
’s rapid healing factor to survive their experiments. Wade found himself in a field mission alongside other operatives Kane, Sluggo and Slayback. At one point, even Vanessa joined the team as mutant shape-shifter Copycat when her abilities started manifesting.
Later Wilson realized that his healing power is failing, thus the cancer came back and horribly deformed his flesh. Considering him a failure, Weapon X
rejected him and sent him to one of their secret facility Hospice. There, every patient ends up being experimental test-subjects for Doctor Killebrew and his sadistic assistant Ajax.
Killebrew and Ajax are primarily responsible for turning Wade Wilson into psychotic super-merceneray Deadpool he'd become later. In Hospice, patients used to bet in a "deadpool" for how long they each going to last there. While suffering at the hands of evil geneticist Killebrew, he eventually met cosmic entity Death and formed a romantic relation.
He keeps on taunting Ajax by calling his real name Francis, earning him the respect of fellow patients but angered the sadistic assistant. To teach him a lesson, Ajax lobotomized his friend Worm, whom he had to kill to end his suffering. Killebrew had a rule that if any of his patients kill another should be executed and so, Francis tore Wilson's heart out.
His thirst for vengeance was so strong that it eventually jump-started his healing factor once again to save his life by regenerating his heart but unfortunately couldn't cure his scars. Nevertheless, Wade quickly rushed out to find Ajax after beating up all the guards in his way and he finally got to and shot his enemy before leaving him to die.
Merc with a Mouth
Upon leaving Hospice, Deadpool became an enforcer for Hammerhead before going back to being a freelance mercenary. He was hired by Kingpin and then tangled with his old pal Logan, when he was a spy for the Canadian government. Wade eventually found Blind Al and keep her captive but he killed anyone who ever tried to help her escape.
Years later, he returns to Hospice looking for a way to get to Killebrew and Doctor Walter Langkowski was assigned to treat him this time, who also happens to be Canada's super-team Alpha Flight member Sasquatch but then abandons this venture as well. Around this time, he got his hands on a teleportation device to aid in his misadventures.
Deadpool's Secret Secret Wars
What many doesn't know is that when the Beyonder
picked up many superheroes and villains from Earth to his Battleworld to take part in original Secret Wars
was one of the selected few. He met an alien woman named Zsaji there, who removed the scars on his face using her power and they both fell in love with each other.
He meddled with a machine to get a new costume after seeing Thor
get one but got one in black-and-white that was alive and interacted with his psyche as it was an alien symbiote Klyntar. He left it back to where he found it before Spider-Man
arriving to repair his own costume and became bonded to it without knowing its true nature.
Before the event of Doctor Doom
's power, he briefly started an affair with The Wasp
after Zsaji moved on with Colossus. He sacrificed his own life to resurrect Mister Fantastic
to save the day and his scars would return for doing so. Wasp
was horrified to see his face and wished to Beyonder
that he erase this from everyone's memory.
Back in Black
has removed his symbiotic costume in the bell tower of Our Lady of Saints Church, it felt abandoned and after being chased by a group of alien bounty hunter, it quickly ran from there. It founds a blinded Deadpool
in a nearby club fighting Machine Man
and bonded to him as he was about to be mind-controlled by Dansen Macabre.
Turning into Venompool, he kicked off all of his attackers and even killed some of them. Aside from having tentacles, Wade discovers that he can now shoot webbing like Spidey. Wilson recalls their time from Battleworld and decides to keep the suit this time. Soon the dup will be persuaded by extraterrestrial bounty hunter Killer Thrill, Guzz and Coldwar.
After defeating Dansen Macabre, he briefly teamed up with Power Pack
to fight Zn'rx soldiers, took down White Rabbit alongside Black Cat
, devoured Coldwar when engaged, gotten into beef with Kraven the Hunter
for mistaking it as Spider-Man
and finally saved the latter's life by forcing Killer Thrill to leave him alone before letting go off the suit.
Wade Wilson was also operational during the invasion of the alien Skrulls and took a covert assignment from Nick Fury
So, he goes to a baseball stadium where an armada ship showed up posing as a mascot and gunned down a few of them. When they deployed the Super-Skrull
to catch him, he surrenders and wishes to join them.
Despite his history in killing business and a shady past as a Weapon X
operative, the Skrulls were not interested about him but when they discover his rapid healing ability, they decide to develop a new batch of super weapon using his DNA. The new bunch showed potential by taking out an entire fleet of Super-Skrulls
Although impervious to death, they all now posses Wade's incurable insanity and when he made them blew each other brains out, his intentions became clear to the enemy. The remaining few were killed off by cell overgrowth from his healing factor. Before leaving with the data he came looking for, Wade beats the lead geneticist to death.
Earlier, Wade went through a lot of crap to infiltrate among the ranks of Skrulls during "Secret Invasion
" to get information on behalf of Nick Fury
but his transmission was intercepted by Norman Osborn, which he used to kill the Skrull Queen and became director of H.A.M.M.E.R. while Wilson got scammed out of a payday he worked for.
After a botched up job off-shore, he was returning back to America and his ship was sunk by Tiger Shark
. He wakes up at a Mexico beach, missing an arm but as he goes out seeking the enemy, it came to him with a huge machete. His friend Hydra agent Bob came to help him fight Shark too but was actually sent here to kill him.
DP clears the wind between them by revealing that he knows Bob was sent to whack him down but then they team-up and defeat Tiger Shark
before shooting him in the hand for trying to sell him out. He forced Bob to reveal the identity of his secret employer, who was Osborn and learned that he is the one responsible for Wade missing his paycheck.
So, Deadpool sends an invoice to him next day for a hundred million and he then assembles his Thunderbolts team to confront the merc. DP ran straight to the trap set for him on Avengers Tower but still managed to take down all of his attackers except Yelena Belova, the other Black Widow and even started flirting with her instead of fighting.
With help from Taskmaster, he tries to woo her some more by swapping places and got his head cut off by Headsman, which Yelena put back on. Osborn thought he has seen the last of him but saw him alive and sent master assassin Bullseye dressed as Hawkeye to take care of business but he had to pay Wade to stop him from keep coming back.
has been taking covert assignments from an elderly person that doesn't even pay him. He is worried that if word gets out about him doing charity works, it may ruin his reputation. Though he decided not to take orders from anyone a while ago, the tables have turned and he is not even allowed to kill anyone during these missions.
He breaks into a secret facility to collect a canister before arriving on Avengers Mansion and his handler is revealed to be none other than Steve Rogers, formerly known as Captain America
. Turns out what he bust out are Terrigen Mist samples, now will be used to find a cure for M-Pox to save Rogue
and he became a member of Rogers' Unity Squad.
So, alongside a team of Doctor Voodoo
, Human Torch
officially begin his career as an Avenger
with Commander Steve Rogers in charge. In their first adventure, they go up against the Super-Adaptoid that was being a challenged to them that neither Synapse
nor Torch could handle.
Wade takes him down with an unorthodox method that could've been dangerous and this angers Spidey so much that he quits the team. A villain mutated by Terrigen Cloud called Shredded Man unleashes a dystopian landscape on Boston that required time-travelling mutant Cable
to come back from future and join forces to stop him.
Seeing his teammates not getting along with Nathan much, Wade suggests that if he is here from future then things are bad for real. These two mutant mercenaries go guns blazing against those creatures before having Rogue
to throw him to at the enemy for a "Fastball Special" when he ran out of ammo and Cable
eventually saves the day.
The Man Who Fell To Earth
Trapped inside the prison of Pleasant Hill, Wade gives chase to a vehicle with Nathan, Rogue
and Voodoo to a vehicle Wrecker was driving. He asks the Wrecking Crew
member if he has been looking for Red Skull
as he was tasked. Together they all regrouped to fight back S.H.I.E.L.D.
operatives to stop them from taking Maria Hill back.
When Hank Pym returns to Earth soon wrapped up in Ultron
parts, Wade was surprised as everyone else. He later stops by to ask Cable
if Half Life 3
ever drops seeing him talking with Human Torch
about future. As the Schaefer Theater is blown up by a distressed Hank, DP has him held on gunpoint after Wasp
hits him with an E.M.P. charge.
While Cap and Janet argues about whether to take a shot, he fires a warning shot touching his ear, only to be impaled by a robotic extension of the robot. Nate asks Wasp
to fire a second E.M.P. to disable Ultron
's remains inside Deadpool
's body and then separates the Merc from the machine by ripping it all from his flesh using his telekinesis.

|The Best Mercenary Ever|
Over the years of publications, Wade Wilson has made more deadly enemies than he made friends that he can count on and though his intentions are not always bad, he is often portrayed as an anti-hero. He would mostly go pick up fights with bad guys who are way out of his league but will manage to take them down in the end somehow anyway.
Even after all that blood in his resume, he somehow pulled off being a member of Uncanny Avengers
and mutant superhero team of the X-Men
for at least once. In motion picture, the character is portrayed by actor Ryan Reynolds
in X-Men Origins – Wolverine
in 2009 first and then later in his R-rated live-action solo Deadpool
movie in 2016.
The solo movie became an impressive Box-Office success worldwide and triggered for a sequel. Reynolds eventually returns with Deadpool 2
in 2018 which also stars actor Josh Brolin
and Zazie Beetz
to portray Cable
respectively in the cinematic debut of these characters and a very short-lived version of X-Force
at the same time.
