Wade Wilson, better known as Deadpool, is a superpowered mercenary.
Little is known about the early life of Wade Wilson. The problem is he keeps changing his story about his origin. He claims that right after being born his mother was kidnapped by ninjas, and that Spider-Man was there. He also claims that his powers came from falling into a radioactive swimming pool when he was a teenager.
What really happened is that he was a child who was picked on by a gang of thugs. Nick Fury recruited Wade into his program for young people with powers. He trained with Nova, White Tiger, Iron Fist, and Power Man. He disagreed with the purpose of the team and left to become a freelancer. He decided to get revenge on all those who tormented him.
He found out that his replacement was Spider-Man. He teamed up with the webslinger to track down a rogue S.H.I.E.L.D. agent called McGuffin, who was selling secrets to Taskmaster. They found and defeated Taskmaster, when Deadpool revealed that there was no Agent McGuffin and that the villain got secrets from him. He offered to split the money with Spider-Man in order to keep his secret, but was turned down. The two fought and Spider-Man realized how he could one day be just like the mercenary. He allowed Deadpool to get away.
Deadpool is voiced by Will Friedle.
His appearance and personality are taken from his mainstream comics counterpart, with virtually nothing from the Ultimate version.
In the Comics
He was originally a mercenary who had cancer. He joined Weapon X so they could give him a healing factor to cure it. While it did cure him, it left him horribly disfigured and psychotic.
He was hired by S.H.I.E.L.D. as a bounty hunter, which didn't last long.
He was a sergeant in a war with Wakanda who survived some unknown catastrophe. He lost the skin on his face and parts of his skull. He has a clear plastic helmet that looks like a normal human head with his mask.
Deadpool respects Spider-Man's use of a mask enough to stop his men from unmasking the hero.
