Who is Deadpool?
Deadpool A.K.A. Wade Wilson is an international assassin who works for many different clients, doing what he needs for money and GUNS, While he was blowing heads off, he developed a type of cancer that isn't mentioned in the comics. In an effort to find a cure, he enrolled in the Weapon X program in Canada (the same one Wolverine was in), which gave him a regeneration factor from another member and then he was forced to work for them. When he killed a team member, he was kicked off the team and was sent to have his abilities removed, where he was experimented on instead of removing his powers. The results of his stay there were a diminished mental state, a healing factor that could not cure his cancer or heal his scars, an infatuation with death, and his freedom to return to for-hire mercenary work. As "The Merc with a Mouth" he kills and has a good time doing it.
