The Origins of Deadpool
Deadpool’s origin story is quite complex and has been retconned several times over the years. In his original appearance in “The New Mutants,” he was introduced as a mercenary named Wade Wilson who had been recruited by the villainous Tolliver. He was portrayed as a skilled fighter with a twisted sense of humor and a disregard for human life.
In 1997, writer Joe Kelly and artist Ed McGuinness began a new series titled “Deadpool” that reimagined the character’s origin story. In this version, Wade Wilson was a former soldier turned mercenary who was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Desperate for a cure, he underwent an experimental treatment that gave him superhuman abilities but also left him severely disfigured.
This version of Deadpool was popular with fans and has since become the canonical origin story for the character. However, other versions of his origin story have been explored in various comic book series, including one in which he was created as a weapon by the Weapon X program that also created Wolverine.
Despite the various retcons and alternate origin stories, one thing remains consistent: Deadpool’s irreverent humor and tendency to break the fourth wall. These traits have made him one of the most unique and entertaining characters in the Marvel Universe.
