Review: Deadpool (DarkZero)

"Deadpool was originally created as a parody of the DC character Deathstroke but oddly enough has become even more well-known after taking on a persona of his own. Starting off with a pretty brutal past of an abusive father and a mother who died of cancer, young Wade Wilson ended up volunteering for the government’s Weapon X program after being ejected from the military for bad behaviour and being diagnosed with cancer himself. The program was an experiment to try and mimic Wolverine's incredible healing powers, which worked seemingly too well. As Wolverine's healing allows super-fast regeneration of cells and Wade Wilson had a bad case of cancer, not only were his good cells able to regenerate, but the cancer was also able to excel, which disfigured his body and caused irreparable neurological damage. Deadpool is constantly in horrible pain and is effectively always in a limbo state of simultaneously being alive and dead. Pretty dark, right? Well, it seems Deadpool hasn’t taken it that hard, as he’s now mostly known for being a comedic master of martial arts and weaponry (and being all too well aware of it), having multiple personalities in his head that manifest themselves as speech bubbles, and breaking the fourth wall to talk with the reader directly." (DarkZero) (Deadpool, PC) 7/10
