MORE LIKE DEADPOOL’S MANUAL...OR GUIDE, WHO CARES ITS COOL ANYWAYS. “It all began with some debts and a piece of paper , and maybe a beer” - Rob LeifieldIm serious about it.

Rob leifield In the early 1990s, self-taught artist Liefeld became prominent due to his work on Marvel Comics’ The New Mutants and later X-Force. In 1992, he and several other popular Marvel illustrators left the company to found Image Comics, which started a wave of comic books owned by their creators rather than by publishers. The first book published by Image Comics was Rob Liefeld’s Youngblood #1. In the 2000s, Liefeld returned to his former characters in the XMen franchise, providing pencils for the occasional cover and/or interior of Cable and X-Force until the early 2000s, when both were cancelled. In 2004, he reunited with Fabian Nicieza for an X-Force limited series and illustrated the early covers for Nicieza’s Cable and Deadpool. In that same year, Liefeld formed Arcade Comics and once again announced plans to revive Youngblood. These involved reprinting older material[16] and pro-

viding the art for two new series[17] Youngblood: Bloodsport with Mark Millar[18] and Youngblood: Genesis with Brandon Thomas.[19] Although the former only published one issue, Liefeld expressed hopes to finish the series.[20] Liefeld returned to the Heroes Reborn Universe with writer Jeph Loeb with the Onslaught Reborn, a five-issue limited series that premiered in November

2006.[21] This led to Liefeld having a pitch accepted for a plan to bring Killraven back, with writer Robert Kirkman.[22] In July 2007, it was announced that Rob Liefeld and Youngblood would be returning to Image Comics after years of self-publication.[23] This new partnership marks the first time in a decade that Liefeld and Image would collaborate on a project. The new Youngblood series is written by Joe Casey[24] with art by Derec Donovan and Val Staples, with covers by Liefeld, and started in January 2008. [25] He took over writing and art duties with issue #9.[26] To commemorate the event, and the 15th anniversary of Image Comics, the 2007 San Diego Comic-Con was headlined by the Image Founders panel, where all seven of the original Image Comics founders appeared on stage simultaneously for the first time in history.[citation needed] 2010 saw Liefeld return to the Deadpool character.


FACTS!

and his secret l “ SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH”

seriously keep this a secret or i’ll be dead ha! like im gonna die anyway...wait i actyally may die if my secrets.. oh c’mon man just keep goind and ignore this page! HERE! I’LL GIVE YOU A PONY ,PRETTY PLEASE?

pOWERS

BIO Mr. Wilson is making me update the introduction that I had written for him because he said that it looked like it was written by a third grader who spoke English as a third language. And then he shot me in the foot. I will try to make this better before I pass out from loss of blood. Mr. Wilson says that he started off as a regular kid with a crappy life so he left as soon as he could and joined the military, but that life really wasn’t for him either, so he became a mercenary. No somewhere in there T-Ray claims that Mr. Wilson killed his wife and took on the name Wade Wilson but Mr. Wilson claims that he is the original Wade Wilson and that T-Ray made it all up. Anyways, he ends up falling for a prostitute named Vanessa Carlysle but when he gets cancer he can’t bear to have her see him die in front of her eyes so he leaves her.

As much as it pains me to admit it, Deadpool is quite skilled. He has thisregenerative healing factor that pretty much lets him get blown up and end up walking away from it. It lets him resist diseases and some drugs and presumably will let him live for a very long time. He even told me that his brain is immune to telepathy, but I think that is just because no one wants in there. He is quite strong and in excellent shape. He is very a very skilled marksman and swordsman and extremely skilled at unarmed combat. He is also an expert with explosive devices and has been known to use a teleportation device. He is also very skilled at lame pop culture references and eating insane amounts of Hot Pockets or Tacos or whatever food he is currently obsessing with.

first issue! MADNESS UNLEASHED! “The first issue in the new ongoing Deadpool series, Deadpool: Merc With A Mouth, comes out tomorrow July 1, 2009. The series is written by Victor Gischler and is penciled by Bong Dazo. This issue also features a variant cover by former Deadpool artist Ed McGuinness”

After many appereances in other comics it was in 1997 that dedpool finally got his own SERIES

6

In 1997, Deadpool was given his own ongoing title, initially written by Joe Kelly, with then-newcomer Ed McGuinness as an artist. The series firmly established his supporting cast, including his prisoner/den mother Blind Al and his best friend Weasel. Deadpool became an action comedy parody of the cosmic drama, antihero-heavy comics of the time. The ongoing series gained cult popularity for its unorthodox main character and its balance of angst and pop culture slapstick and the character became less of a villain, though the element of his moral ambiguity remained. The writer Joe Kelly noted, “With Deadpool, we could do anything we wanted because everybody just expected the book to be cancelled every five seconds, so nobody was paying attention. And we could get away with it.” The series was taken over by Christopher Priest who noted that he found Kelly’s issues to be “complex and a little hostile to new readers like me’ and that by issue 37, he realized that ‘it was okay to make Deadpool look stupid” yeah just like that.

“this is Deathstroke from Teen Titans.” Nicieza gave Deadpool the real name of “Wade Wilson” as an in-joke to being “related” to “Slade Wilson”, Deathstroke. [5] In his first appearance, Deadpool was hired by Tolliver to attack Cable and the New Mutants. After subsequently appearing in X-Force as a recurring character, Deadpool began making guest appearances in various different Marvel Comics titles such as the Avengers, Daredevil, andHeroes for Hire. In 1993 the character received his own miniseries, entitled The Circle Chase, written by Fabian Nicieza and pencilled byJoe Madureira. It was a relative success, and Deadpool starred in a second, self-titled miniseries written in 1994 by Mark Waid, pencilled by Ian Churchill, and inked by Jason Temujin Minor and Bud LaRosa and some random guy.

The character, known as the “Merc with a Mouth”, is famous for his talkative nature and his tendency to “break the fourth wall”, which is used by writers for humorous effect. Deadpool was ranked 182nd on Wizard magazine’s list of the Top 200 Comic Book Characters of All Time[2] ranked 45th on Empire magazine’s list of The 50 Greatest Comic Book Characters,[3] and placed 31st on IGN’s list of the Top 100 Comic Book Heroes.[4]

“smells like pancakes”

Deadpool lasted until issue #69, at

which point it was relaunched as a new title by Gail Simone with a similar character called Agent X in 2002. This occurred during a line wide revamp of X-Men related comics, with Cable becoming Soldier X and X-Force becoming X-Statix. Simone notes that ‘When I took the Deadpool job, the revamp hadn’t been planned, so it was a complete surprise. Thankfully, we heard about it in time to make adjustments to the early scripts’.[8] It appeared that Deadpool was killed in an explosion fighting the aristocratic (and telepathic) villain known as the Black Swan. Weeks later, a mysterious figure showed up at the apartment of Deadpool’s manager, Sandi Brandenberg. The man took the name Alex Hayden and together they started “Agency X,” with Hayden dubbed Agent X after the company. Most believed that Hayden was Deadpool suffering from amnesia. The title character of Agent X was eventually revealed not to be Deadpool and the climax of that series saw the original character restored. Simone left the title after seven issues due to creative differences with the series editor.[9] Deadpool’s next starring appearance came in 2004 with the launch of Cable & Deadpool written by Fabian Nicieza, where Deadpool became partnered with his former enemy, Cable, teaming up in various adventures. This title was canceled with issue #50 and replaced by a new Cable series in March 2008.[10] Deadpool then appeared briefly in the Wolverine: Originstitle by writer Daniel Way before Way and Paco Medina launched another Deadpool title in September 2008.[11] Medina was the main series artist, with Carlo Barberi filling in on the first issue after the Secret Invasion tie-in.[12]A new Deadpool ongoing series written by Daniel Way with artist Paco Medina began

i made it to the next millenium! poor shaq didnt as a Secret Invasion tie-in. In the first arc, the character is seen working with Nick Fury to steal data on how to kill the Skrull queen Veranke.[13][14] Norman Osborn steals the information that Deadpool had stolen from the Skrulls, and subsequent stories deal with the fallout from that. Writer Daniel Way explained, “the first thing Osborn does to try and take care of the situation is to bring in a hired gun to take Deadpool down, which would be Tiger-Shark. That would be the standard thing to do, but of course everything about Deadpool is non-standard. So it goes completely awry and Norman has to get more serious about things.”[15] The story also sees the return of Bob, Agent of HYDRA, “I don’t want the book to become ‘Deadpool and Friends’ so characters will drift in and out, but Bob was someone I definitely wanted to bring in. It just had to be at the perfect moment and

A special anniversary issue titled Deadpool #900 was released in October 2009. It features stories written by several authors, with the main feature written by the original Deadpool series writer Joe Kelly and drawn by Deadpool’s creator Rob Liefeld. A third Deadpool ongoing series, Deadpool Team-Up, launched in November 2009 (with issue numbers counting in reverse starting with issue #899), written by Fred Van Lente, with art by Dalibor Talajic. This series features Deadpool teaming up with different heroes from the Marvel Universe in each issue, such as Hercules.[25] Deadpool also joined the cast of the new X-Force team.[26]

when I was putting this storyline together that moment presented itself.”.[15] This all led directly to a confrontation with the newThunderbolts in “Magnum Opus” which crossed over between Deadpool vol. 4 #8-9 and Thunderbolts #130-131.[15] Thunderbolts writer Andy Diggle said, “it’s a natural progression for Deadpool to go after Norman, and for Norman to send his personal hit-squad after Deadpool.”[16] In Deadpool #15, Deadpool decides to become a hero resulting in conflicts with proper heroes like Spider-Man[17] (who he had recently encountered in The Amazing SpiderMan #611 as part of “The Gauntlet”[18]) and leading to a 3-issue arc where he takes on Hit-Monkey,[19] a character who debuted in the same month in a digital, then print, oneshot. ,just like that o wow. Another ongoing Deadpool series, Deadpool: Merc with a Mouth launched in July 2009, written by Victor Gischler, with art by Bong Dazo. In it Deadpool teams up with the head of the zombie Deadpool from Marvel Zombies 3 and 4.[22][23][24]

Deadpool appears in X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse voiced by John Kassir. Deadpool initially appears as a boss, having been hired and brainwashed by Mister Sinister. He fights the united X-Men and Brotherhood in the New York City’s North Side during Act 4. Deadpool is also unlocked as a playable character once the game is completed for the first time. As in the comics, Deadpool breaks the fourth wall if the player stalls enough. If the enemy Deadpool is fought using the playable Deadpool, they will argue about which one is the real Deadpool.[70] In Marvel: Ultimate Alliance, Deadpool is a playable character from the beginning of the game with John Kassir reprising speaking role

His unmasked Ultimate Marvel appearance serves as an alternative costume. In the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, he appears as a boss in the game’s third stage, but will join the party upon his defeat when he realizes that the heroes aren’t part of Titanium Man’s terrorist attack. In keeping with his previous appearance, Deadpool has been written so that he is fully aware of his presence in a video game, and his dialogue throughout the title reflects this insight (for example, if the player chooses to enlist him

Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk is a comic book miniseries, published by Marvel Comics. The series is set in one of Marvel’s shared universes, the Ultimate Universe. It was written by Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof, and illustrated by artist Leinil Francis Yu and coloristDave McCaig. The title characters square off after Wolverine is contracted by Nick Fury to assassinate the Hulk, who is known to be residing in Tibet. The series features cameos by other Ultimate characters, as well as the introduction of Ultimate She-Hulk. It was originally planned as a six-issue, bimonthly series. But after two issues, the remainder of the series was postponed until Lindelof finished all of the scripts, and the series began publication again with a new issue in March 2009. The series takes place between Ultimate X-Men issues 69 and 71 and before Ultimates 2 issue 11. The miniseries is a throwback to Wolverine’s comic debut in The Incredible Hulk Wolverine awakens to find his lower half missing, his body having been ripped in half by the Hulk minutes earlier. Using his keen sense of smell, he finds his legs have been thrown to the top of a mountain. As he climbs up a mountain to retrieve his legs, he recalls the events leading up to his current situation. He recounts meeting Nick Fury, Betty Ross and Jennifer Walters, and being told that the Hulk is alive and responsible for several “incidents” of mass destruction after a public “execution” by S.H.I.E.L.D. Fury gives Logan (Wolverine) the assignment to hunt down and “take care” of the Hulk. Wolverine tracks the Hulk to a small Tibetan village, where the Hulk is found lounging, surrounded by scantily clad women. Upon seeing the Hulk, Wolverine says “Hi, Bru-

ce”. (In the 2nd issue this line is delivered from another perspective as “Hello Bruce”)

The Plot In 1845 Canada, young James Howlett sees his father killed by groundskeeper Thomas Logan. The trauma activates the boy’s mutation: bone claws protrude from James’ hands, and he kills Thomas, who reveals with his dying breath to be James’ real father. James flees into the forest along with Thomas’s son Victor Creed, who is thus James’ brother. They spend the next century as soldiers, fighting in the American Civil War, both World Wars and the Vietnam War. In Vietnam, Victor (Liev Schrieber) attempts to rape a local village woman, but is stopped after killing a senior officer. James

(Hugh Jackman) defends his brother, and the two are sentenced to execution by firing squad, which they survive. Major William Stryker (Danny Huston) approaches them, now in military custody, and offers them membership in Team X, a group of mutants including marksman Agent Zero (Daniel Henney), swordsman Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds), teleporter John Wraith (Will.i.am), invulnerable Fred Dukes (Kevin Durand) and electropathic Chris Bradley (Dominic Monaghan). They join the team, but the group’s questionable actions and disregard for human life cause James to leave. just like that. Six years later, James, now going by the name Logan, lives in Canada with

his girlfriend, Kayla Silverfox (Lynn Collins). Colonel Stryker locates Logan and warns him that someone is killing members of the team; both Wilson and Bradley are dead. Shortly afterward, Victor murders Kayla and attacks Logan. Stryker offers Logan a way to beat Victor; Logan undergoes an operation to reinforce his skeleton with adamantium, a virtually indestructible metal. Before the procedure, Logan asks for new dog tags inscribed with “Wolverine”, based on a story that Kayla told him. Once the procedure is complete, Stryker orders Logan’s memory erased, but Logan overhears and fights his way out. As Logan runs, Zero tracks him down but is killed. Logan locates Wraith and Dukes and asks them about the location of Stryker’s new laboratory, referred to as “The Island”. They tell him to find Remy “Gambit” Le-

that Kayla is alive and conspired with Stryker in exchange for her sister’s safety. Enraged, Logan leaves. Victor

then arrives, demanding the adamantium bonding promised for his service, but Stryker refuses on the basis that Victor would not survive the procedure. Victor attempts to kill Kayla, but Logan hears her screams and returns. Logan defeats and nearly kills Victor, but Kayla stops him. Meanwhile, Stryker activates Weapon XI, a “mutant killer” with the abilities of other mutants created upon Wilson’s body, which Stryker refers to as “The Deadpool”. Kayla and Logan free the imprisoned mutants, and on their escape they are found by Weapon XI. Logan holds Weapon XI off while the mutants flee. During the escape, Kayla, mortally wounded, decides to stay behind while the party led by Scott Summers (Tim Pocock) is greeted by Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart),

Beau (Taylor Kitsch), who escaped and who offers them shelter at his school. Logan lures Weapon XI to the top of one knows the location of The Island.

Logan and Wraith locate Gambit in New Orleans, but when Lo-

gan asks for the Island’s location, Gambit suspects he was sent to recapture him and attacks. Outside, Logan finds Victor, who had just killed Wraith and the two fight. When Logan is about to kill Victor, Gambit interrupts, and Victor escapes. Logan and Gambit fight before Logan convinces him he is not working for Stryker. Gambit takes him to Stryker’s facility on Three Mile Island. When General Munson tries to shut Weapon XI down, learning of Stryker’s son and believing that he is too emotionally close to the situation, Stryker kills him. There, Logan learns

of the plant’s cooling towers. Logan is almost killed until Victor intervenes. Logan decapitates Weapon XI and kicks him into the base of the cooling tower. As he falls, the head fires optic blasts that cause the tower to start falling apart. Victor departs and Logan is saved from the collapsing tower by Gambit. After Logan finds Kayla, Stryker shoots him in the forehead with adamantium bullets, rendering him unconscious. Kayla uses her persuasion powers to make Stryker drop the gun and commands him to walk away before dying from her wounds. Gambit returns as Logan regains consciousness, but the brain damage caused by the bullets has triggered amnesia. Gambit tries convincing Logan to come with him, but he declines, wanting to go his
