Character spotlight – Deadpool

Deadpool aka Wade Wilson first appeared in New Mutants #98.

Originally depicted as a villain, his personality eventually morphed into an anti-hero. Deadpool’s abilities are speed and agility and a healing factor that has saved his life several times.

Armed with two blades and an assortment of weapons (ranging from handguns to automatic assault weapons), Deadpool’s history remains vague and shrouded in mystery.

Deadpool is also referred to as a “Merc with a mouth” because of his tendency to joke constantly (whether he is in battle or not).
