Deadpool is a comic book character created in the early 1990s by cartoonist Rob Liefeld and screenwriter Fabian Nicieza for the American publisher Marvel Comics. His first appearance was in the number 98 of the collection New Mutants (February 1991).
Not enough is known about Deadpool’s childhood. Sometime after his mother died of cancer, his father was killed by a drunken friend, and he was kicked out of the U.S. Army Special Forces, “Wade” joined Project X.
Little was known of Wilson’s later mercenary activities. At one point he was active in Tangier, Morocco, where he romanced a woman named Francie. When this relationship soured, he traveled throughout Asia and was hired in Japan by a crimelord, the boss, to infiltrate a sumo wrestling ring owned by a criminal rival, the Oyakata.
Wilson spent three years as a wrestler under Oyakata’s tutelage and became romantically involved with his mentor’s daughter, Sazae.
When the boss finally ordered Oyakata’s assassination, Wilson refused to complete his assignment, supposedly the first time he had ever done so, and moved to the United States.
In America, Wilson met and fell in love with teenage mutant prostitute Vanessa Carlysle, with whom he shared dreams of a better life.
Wilson was subsequently hired by Middle Eastern interests to assassinate a British Government blind operative named Althea, also known as Blind Al, but upon arriving at the Zaire base where she was based, he killed everyone except Al who had fled.
Wilson’s employers sought revenge for his failure by targeting Vanessa, who was rescued by Zoe culloden, an employee of the demonic Landau firm, Luckman, Lake and LeQuare.
Culloden kept Wilson under surveillance, believing he was destined to play a vital role in a potential threat to the world. Learning that he had contracted cancer, Wilson broke up with his girlfriend Vanessa rather than force her to stay with a terminally ill man.
He even abandoned his chemotherapy treatments, not wishing to prolong things.
