She is old but her exact age has been in question. She has claimed wearing flapper dresses in the 1920s.
Blind Al was created by Joe Kelly and Ed McGuinness and first appeared in Deadpool Volume 1 issue 1 (1997).
Major Story Arcs
At some point in Al's life, Deadpool was hired to kill her but he kidnapped her instead, which actually ensured her survival. He kept her prisoner and used her as a kind of mother figure. They also relentlessly (and mercilessly) played practical jokes on each other.
Recently, Blind Al teamed up with Weasel, Macho Gomez, Taskmaster, Big Bertha, and Sluggo to take revenge on Deadpool for being a lousy friend. Blind Al shot at Deadpool by tying a string from her gun to Deuce the Devil Dog, who would aim it for her by pulling in the direction of the target. It, of course, missfired and their silly plan ended. Blind Al remained living with Deadpool for a number of months before the two started seeing each other les and les.
Not on the Wedding
When Deadpool married Shiklah, Blind Al was not present. Deadpool had sent her an invitation in braille, but it was to a wrong church that was occupied by gangmembers. Blind Al was last seen asking the gangmembers if the bride 'looked hot'.
Blind Al is a part of the Deadpool movie. She is played by actor Leslie Uggams. She is portrayed much like her comic-book counterpart and serves as mother-figure to Deadpool
