The Deadpool character first appeared in The New Mutants #98 (February 1991). In 1997, Deadpool was given his own ongoing title, initially written by Joe Kelly and Ed McGuinness as an artist. Deadpool became an action comedy parody of the cosmic drama, antihero-heavy comics of the time. The series firmly established his supporting cast, including his prisoner/den mother Blind Al and his best friend Weasel. The ongoing series gained cult popularity for its unorthodox main character and its balance of angst and pop culture slapstick and the character became less of a villain, though the element of his moral ambiguity remained.
Another Deadpool series by Victor Gischler titled Deadpool Corps was released in April 2010. Besides Deadpool himself, this series featured alternate versions of Deadpool, including Lady Deadpool (who debuted in Deadpool: Merc with a Mouth #7), Headpool (the Marvel Zombies universe incarnation, now reduced to a severed head), and two new characters; Kidpool, a child, and Dogpool, a dog.
Gwenpool, an amalgam of Gwen Stacy and Deadpool, first appeared on a variant cover of Deadpool's Secret Secret Wars #2 (June 2015). She later received her own series titled The Unbelievable Gwenpool following the success of Spider-Gwen.
Deadpool appeared in the animated film Hulk Vs Wolverine voiced by Nolan North. The character was portrayed by Ryan Reynolds in the 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine, who reprised the role in a Deadpool, released on February 12, 2016 and its sequel in May 18, 2018.
In animated series, Deadpool has cameoed in X-Men: The Animated Series and Marvel Anime: X-Men. He makes his first animated speaking role in Ultimate Spider-Man voiced by Will Friedle. Deadpool appeared in Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers and Marvel Future Avengers.
