Deadpool, everybody’s favorite disfigured and mentally unstable mercenary, has become a superstar in his own right. Originally appearing as a villain in an issue of New Mutants, Deadpool’s ridiculous antics, over-the-top personality and fourth-wall breaking banter has earned him a cult following over the years.
And now, with the announcement of his very own feature film starring Ryan Reynolds, we figured now’s a good time to take a good look at the super skilled and super unpredictable “Merc With a Mouth”, Deadpool. Here are 30 reasons why this regenerating degenerate rocks.
1. He once fought 10 dead Presidents and encouraged the readers to listen to Pantera while he fights them.
2. He has a soft side.
3. He’s so likeable that even other superheroes give him gifts all the time.
