10 tips you NEED to know to truly discover Deadpool!

Posted by Marko Cortez on

For all you Deadpool fans out there, I bet you are as excited as we are with the upcoming film due in Theaters February 12th. But for anyone else who has been living under a rock, here is some info. for you to know before heading out to see the movie:

For some back story on Deadpool:

In an effort to cure his cancer, former special forces operative Wade Wilson was subjected to an experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, disfigured skin, an unstable mind, and a "dark, twisted" sense of humor. Armed with new abilities and a new identity, Wilson hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Important Information you need to know:

1. Deadpool made his first appearance in the pages of The New Mutants #98, cover dated February 1991.

2. Deadpool is depicted as having an accelerated healing factor, which not only prevents him from being permanently injured through enhanced cell regeneration throughout his body, but also causes psychosis and mental instability, as his neurons are also affected by the accelerated regeneration.

3. The character is known for his talkative nature, dubbing him the "Merc with a Mouth". It is sometimes implied that his healing factor merely exacerbated an underlying mental issue, with Wilson having been a withdrawn, disturbed youth. To sum him up, he pretty much is a total douche!


4. Despite all this, Deadpool has a strong sense of core morality; in Uncanny X-Force, he storms out after Wolverine tries to rationalize Fantomex killing Apocalypse, who was at the time in a child form. After Wolverine argues that Deadpool is motivated solely by money, Archangel reveals that Deadpool never cashed any of his checks.

5. This one is some quite interesting news about him: Deadpool was confirmed as being omnisexual by Deadpool writer Gerry Dugan via Twitter.

6. Deadpool's brain cells are affected with dying neurons being rejuvenated at a super accelerated rate. This allows Deadpool to recover from any head wounds, and it renders him nearly invulnerable to psychic and telepathic powers, although this ability is inconsistent. It has been revealed that at the time that his healing ability was given to him, Deadpool suffered from some form of cancer. After the healing factor was given to him, it made his normal cells as well as his cancerous cells unable to die, giving him a heavily scarred appearance beneath his suit.

7. Deadpool's body is highly resistant to most drugs and toxins, due to his enhanced cell regeneration. For example, it is extremely difficult for him to become intoxicated. He can be affected by certain drugs such as tranquilizers, if he is exposed to a large enough dosage.

8. Deadpool is effectively immortal, although he has died several times. He is still alive 800 years in the future when the new X-Force encounters him. In addition, Thanos once declared that Deadpool should "consider yourself cursed ... with life!"

9. Deadpool is a highly trained assassin and mercenary, adept in multiple forms of martial arts, and an expert swordsman and marksman. Although in earlier years he was originally portrayed as having superhuman strength, he is no longer depicted as having this ability.

10. Finally the last thing you should know is that Ryan Reynolds is playing Deadpool in the upcoming Marvels Universe Movie.  Ryan Reynolds also played the Green Lantern for DC Comics movie and if this movie is anything like the Green Lantern movie...Weeellllllllll........We'll leave the conclusion to you guys when you go see the movie.  Until then, check out our AWESOME custom glow in the dark Deadpool Funko POP! figure and let him glow into your hearts this Valentines Day!
