The Avengers are supposed to be "Earth's Mightiest Heroes," and Deadpool has kicked maybe 1/3rd of the Marvel universe's keester. Doesn't that make him one of Earth's mightiest?

Granted, he isn't exactly a "hero." But, he's whatever he wants to be. And he has been searching for a way to better himself, but can't seem to break old habits. So being an Avenger would nail two birds with one stone.

In an alternate reality, Deadpool was not only an Avenger, but was their leader. He called himself the "Swordsman."

No. You don't become an Avenger just because you can beat people up.

I think he should be an X-man, even if he isn't technically a mutant.

I do love Deadpool but I think it'd be too much if he was on the Avengers. Also I don't think they'd really go for the killing angle. I love the comic relief but Spidey added enough when he was on the team. Deadpool works better solo or in a duet. La la laaaaaa.

Deadpool should be in everything. Kind of what Bendis is doing for Spidey and Wolverine. Just slap him in every comic.

Imagine it: Wolverine, Spiderman and Deadpool in their own comic. They could take on the world! I mean, two of them are already unkillable...and the JOKES spidey and wade would have!

What other requirements would one need?

...Too much of a good thing? And Deadpool didn't kill or savagely beat people when he was Cable's pet maniac, so he can restrain himself.

I believe some of the people are thinking of putting Deadpool in the New Avengers. While that would keep Deadpool and Cable on good terms, the Mighty Avengers could be an option.

Wolverine?

Wait no, I think he might be in there because he smokes cigars better than anyone in the marvel universe. Even Nick Fury, and that's saying something.

He sells more because he got pushed down everyone's throats. If Deadpool had as much exposure, he'd sell just as much. But as it is, he has a much smaller, but much more dedicated fanbase.

Deadpool has had two limited series and his own currently ongoing series for 11 years. Only a couple of characters that are in, or have been in the Avengers could claim even a fraction of that success.

Before New Avengers hit, the team was made up of mostly B-listers who don't sell on their own. Deadpool isn't likely to become an Avenger, because it's not really in his character. Deadpool is a mercenary and is regarded by most as such, he's certainly not exactly the altruistic soul Captain America would be looking for.

That's true, but he wants to be a part of something bigger and is constantly conflicted with himself.

Deadpool's behavior and logic slightly changes from writer to writer, but he has key characteristics that shine with each incarnation. Deadpool may not be a selfless defender of justice, but he is eager and very capable. He also tries to do what he thinks is right, which is why he ends up helping the heroes so often. And not only that, but he's very loyal to those who manage to get personally close to him.

Here are a few examples:

It's obvious you're just going to follow your blind fan boyism and not accept the fact that Deadpool is not Avengers material.

I've just shown some evidence that Deadpool is a champion and wants to be a hero. Deadpool just lacks guidance, which has come in the forms of Siryn and Cable. Just a discussion, not fanboyism.

When I heard about the Mighty Avengers, I was wondering why Deadpool wasn't considered. But he has done alot of soul-searching and inner-growing since then and that may not have been possible if he was a member of the Mighty Avengers. I think he's more than ready now, especially after his recent partnership with Captain America. But he doesn't have to join the Avengers, any team would be good... which team is Siryn on right now? I want them to rekindle their friendship, if not something... more. <3

But, after the last issue, I'm thinking the only team Deadpool's going to be a part of is Agency-X. But I do want Deadpool back with Siryn, or getting the respect he deserves from respected heroes.

Respect? The guy is worse then Spiderman. At least Spidey doesn't run his mouth 24/7. I like trash talking, when its above the level of a 7th grader. Personally I cant stand Deadpool.

I like DP, but he wouldn't fit in in Avengers. Maybe Great Lakes Avengers, where he is a reserve member. So you could say he is an Avenger.

A-Rod will sooner join the Red Sox than Deadpool will join the Avengers. The Avengers aren't just there so that every popular character can get in to more comics. You're obviously a fanboy of his, so why ruin him ?

depends who is writing it... deadpools a comedian with a weird sence of humour, the writer would have to be good with deadpool and that would be difficult. avengers characters normally get stuffed up alittle cause the writers dont truly understand the character... eg iron fist is like the 80s iron fist in the new avengers

I still call them Great Lakes Avengers because they change their name all the time anyway.

I like Deadpool. He's a very underrated character. Another Canadain weapon X character, with a healing factor, tons of weapons and amazing martial arts training-that's awesome!

I think part of his appeal is being solo and somewhat of an unknown. Putting Deadpool in the Avengers would have been like putting Moonknight in the Westcoast Avengers like they did in the 80's.

It would have been nice to see him in Omega Flight since he's Canadain-it would have made a lot more sense than USAgent.

But I agree that the character needs more press. He should appear more in a story arcs; maybe teaming up with Wolverine or Daredevil or Iron Fist. I mean, he already took out Taskmaster but hardly anyone even knows about that. (unfortunately)

That first line almost sounds like sarcasm, lol.

What appeals to me about Deadpool is that he is such a sympathetic character that you just want good things to happen to him and succeed. He's a physically and emotionally scarred person that uses humor to hide his insecurities and poor social skills. His life has just never been fair, he has never had anyone to support him or believe in him, and he has obvious mental disabilities. He does bad things because that's all he ever knew how to do, but he's an inherently good person that tries to put his life together and do the right things; but in the end he doesn't get the girl, walk off into the sunset, or get his name chanted by a crowd... he's an underdog that everyone expects to fail, few people like him, and any progress he has made putting his life back together usually just falls apart.

And I personally think that if Deadpool got more press, he'd be a break-out character. But as things are, he's like Marvel's little secret. He has a dedicated fan-base, but it could be so much more. Hell, he isn't even going to be in the Messiah Complex with Cable... Deadpool should be leading that whole event!

If they wanted to sell the new avenger comics they were all ready doing it with spidy. Spidy is also one of the most popular heroes in marvel. I truly believe they only put wolverine on team so that the team has someone willingly to kill.

i think o'l DP should do more stuff with docter strange. I mean this allows a lot of possibilites. plus we get to see deadpool in places he hasnt already been in. perhaps something on a more galactic scale. i mean hes already enemies with thanos. but who knows.

but lets take a look

the formula for deadpool.

deadpool kills. deadpool feels guilt. deadpool wants to be a hero. deadpool confronts an old enemy. deadpool kills. rinse. repeat.
