X-Men Origins: Deadpool

Real Name: Wade Wilson Alias: Deadpool, The Merc with the Mouth Powers: Possesses a superhuman healing factor derived from that of the mutant Wolverine that allows him to regenerate damaged or destroyed areas of his cellular structure at a rate far greater than that of an ordinary human. As such, he can regrow severed limbs or vital organs. The speed at which this healing factor works varies in direct proportion to the severity of the damage Deadpool suffers. This healing factor also affords Deadpool a virtual immunity to poisons and most drugs, as well as an enhanced resistance to diseases and an extended life span. Unlike Wolverine’s natural healing factor, Deadpool’s is mentally driven to a partial extent. This power allows many of Deadpool's natural physical attributes to have been enhanced. Deadpool's musculature generates considerably less fatigue toxins than the muscles of an ordinary human being, granting him superhuman levels of stamina in all physical activities. His natural strength, agility and reflexes have been enhanced to levels that are beyond the natural limits of the human body. Deadpool's agility and reaction time are superior to those of even the finest human athlete. Another factor that makes Deadpool deadly is that he uses a wide assortment of weapons that will allow him to get the job done, but most of the time he uses swords or guns. First Appearance: New Mutants #98 (1990) Background: Now this guy is one of my favorite Marvel characters as of late because the comics are always action-packed and feature some great jokes. Deadpool isn’t known as the Merc with the Mouth for nothing. Not much is known about Deadpool growing up or how he got into the mercenary business, but needless to say he was good at it. Whenever he failed a mission he resorted to plastic surgery to give himself a new identity and thus continue his work of killing. During one mission Deadpool learns that he contracted terminal cancer and did not have long to live. This is where he becomes a part of the Weapon X program as he was drafted by Department K of the Canadian Government. His cancer was kept under controlled when the healing factor of Wolverine was implanted into Deadpool and attuned to work specifically for him. He served with the Weapon X team for a time until while on a mission he killed one of his teammates and was subsequently kicked out of the program and sent to a program ran by Doctor Killebrew. It was in this program were Wade earned his name Deadpool, because this program was a place for Doctor Killebrew to experiment on subjects and then pit them in fights against each other while others placed bets in a “deadpool” to see which one would live. It was an odd turn of events that lead to Deadpool escaping from the facility. When he killed another patient he was sentenced to death by the doctor and had his heart ripped out, but Wade’s will to live and thirst for vengeance kicked his healing ability into growing a new heart (but being scarred forever). After escaping he returned to his mercenary ways and become the best there is. He has worked with numerous other mutants and for some of the most powerful ones, such as the Kingpin and Hammerhead. Throughout his time as a mercenary he fights Wolverine quite a number of times and even goes back to the Weapon X program at the suggestion of Sabretooth and he gets his healing factor upgraded. As of late Deadpool was a part of the Skrull Invasion working for Nick Fury to recover secret data for them and is ultimately responsible for ending the Secret Invasion. After this Deadpool goes back to being a Mercenary again, continuing his adventurous lifestyle.
