Needs Updating: This page is out of date. Editors are encouraged to add more recent information.


Deadpool first appeared in The New Mutants #98 (February 1991), created by Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld. Deadpool was originally a supervillain in his first appearance in The New Mutants and later in issues of X-Force, before eventually becoming an antihero.

Deadpool is a disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary with the superhuman ability of an accelerated healing factor. He is known as the "Merc with a Mouth" because of his talkative nature and tendency to break the fourth wall, which is used by writers to humorous effect.

Wade's name is considered an inside joke to DC Comics' character Slade Wilson/Deathstroke since Nicieza thought so when he was shown the design and characteristics.

Ryan Reynolds portrayed the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and reprised the role in the character's 2016 titular film Deadpool.
