BIO:

The foul-mouthed mercenary now known as Deadpool was once little more than medical waste, written off as a miscarriage of science and technology by the directors of the Canadian government's enigmatic Weapon X project. Were its name known outside certain highly specialized circles, the black-ops initiative would have boasted a distinguished -- if blood-spattered -- track record. Previously, it's technicians had spawned a number of noteworthy scions -- including the feral Wolverine, maverick mutant adventurer, and the savage Sabretooth, psychotic murder machine.

And they had looked forward to an uninterrupted string of successes. Enter Wade Wilson. Diagnosed with cancer, the gun-for-hire left the woman he loved and accepted an unorthodox offer of salvation. Playing upon his hope for a cure, the Weapon X scientists attempted to recreate Wolverine's genetically endowed healing factor through artificial means. Although successful, the Byzantine procedure left Wilson's epidermis and face a horridly callused mess. Considered a failure, he was consigned to a prison laboratory for program rejects. Unable at first to accept his mangled appearance, Wilson slipped into the darkest pit of his soul. He killed several guards and escaped -- dubbing himself "Deadpool," after the facility. Some time later, he re-emerged as one of the world's foremost mercenaries-for-hire.

After cementing his reputation as a solider of fortune and quasi-super hero, Deadpool signed on the dotted line for the terrorist known as Tolliver. His target: the time-tossed mutant freedom fighter called Cable. Deadpool learned that his former lover -- Vanessa Carlyle, the shapeshifter named Copycat -- was posing as Cable's girlfriend and teammate, the probability-altering Domino. Wilson launched repeated offensives against Cable and his mutant strike team, X-Force -- culminating with a battle in which Tolliver was killed and Vanessa seriously wounded. Deadpool showed mercy on his former flame, diverting a portion of his powers to heal her injuries.

Escaping custody in a metal asylum, Deadpool gained the attention of the interdimensional firm of Landau, Luckman & Lake. LL&L believed Deadpool to be the Mithras, one who would usher in a new golden age for the inhabitants of Earth. But the prophecy was a sham: The being destined to bring this era to life actually would transform the planet's inhabitants into mindless, grinning boobs. Deadpool averted disaster, but internal politics within LL&L brought an end to their relationship. His optimism again shattered, Wilson returned to his status as a killer-for-hire.

I must've been 8 or 9 when I was first introduced to Deadpool, while opening a shiny new pack of Marvel trading cards in the early 90's. "Whoa, this guy looks sorta like Spider-man, but he's got ' machineguns & swords?!" As a big X-Men fan back then, Deadpool made plenty of "cameos" in the series I followed, but he never really took the spotlight. Then one day, I saw Deadpool being a total weirdo jerk (yet rather funny) instead of trying to be a "serious badass" type character... and thus, Deadpool found his groove.

Deadpool's appearance in Capcom's VS Series was long overdue... but his epic MVC3 incarnation was well worth the wait. Countless hilarious mannerisms & taunts, while fighting like a pro when he needs to. His LVL3 super has to be one of the funniest super moves ever in a fighting game. Also, +10K badass points to Capcom for putting Deadpool's iconic "Shoryuken" in the game, and +20K more for quoting Magneto's "Welcome to Die" from the 1992 arcade game. ^__^ Capcom killed it with Deadpool in MVC3. Finally, I never expected to see Deadpool on the big screen. Loved both Deadpool movies. Superhero movies DONE RIGHT! Seeing Cable, Juggernaut, and Colossus alongside Deadpool in the movies was such a nice bonus.
