The Merc with a Mouth Finally gets his Big Break

Bryson Russell, Reporter

The long-awaited movie that all Marvel fans have been eager to see is finally coming! The Official Deadpool movie has been announced by 20th Century Fox. It’s set to be released on February 12, 2016. Tim Miller will direct Deadpool, and The Hollywood Reporter stated, while no deal is in place for Reynolds to star, bets are that he will. Many Marvel fans have been waiting for this movie for a long time. For those of you who may not know about the character, Deadpool, here are a few things about him.

     His most known nickname is “The Merc with a Mouth” because he is a mercenary (meaning he is a gun for hire) that can’t seem to shut up. Deadpool originally appeared as a villain in an issue of New Mutants. This comic was a way of introducing new members to the X-men team. He then went on to appear as a recurring character in many X-force comics. The X-force comics group was originally a revamped version of the team from New Mutants.
     He made an appearance in the movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine as Wade Wilson. Wade Wilson is Deadpool’s real name. His primary power is an accelerated healing factor, depicted by various writers at differing levels of efficiency. Artificially endowed by the Weapon X program, this enables him to regenerate any destroyed tissue at a super-human rate as well as making him immune to all known diseases.
     An unanticipated side effect was an acceleration of the cancerous tumors he was suffering from at the time, causing them to quickly spread across his entire body. Because of this, his healing factor supercharged his cancer, resulting in massive scar tissue; causing his appearance to be severely deformed. To sum him up, he is crazy, deformed, fast, smart, and without rules! Even if you’re not a Marvel fan, you should look into Deadpool. Although, he isn’t mentioned much in main stream Marvel movies, he is still a fan favorite due to his uncanny use of breaking the third wall and his skills as a comedic bad guy slaughtering hero!
