Well an argument that Deadpool is THE Wade Wilson is that all of his alternet universe counter parts (even the one's that don't have a faded memory and such) were called Wade or a variation like Wanda Wilson (or Jade if you like tallest silver more, which I do) who's lady Deadpool.

The Deathstroke ripoff created by Rob Liefeld and the fourth-wall-breaking Deadpool aren't the same character.

During the time in the Justice League/Avengers crossover that the Marvel and DC universes temporarily merged, the original Deadpool died offscreen. He was instantly brought back to life since nobody stays dead in superhero comics but due to some sort of weird paradox caused by his being a Captain Ersatz of Deathstroke and the two of them co-existing in the same temporarily-merged universe, he came back as a completely different person with a different Backstory. This sudden Retcon-induced loss of identity coupled with contradictory memories fucked with his sanity to the point that he realized that he was a character in a comic book and none of what had happened was even real. Thus, crazy fourth-wall-breaking Deadpool was born.

  • This would also explain all the confusion with T-Ray. The original, darker Deadpool that was more recognizably a Deathstroke rip-off came back to life after the universes split back into Marvel and DC. When he went to reclaim his place, he found someone else claiming to be him and took on the name T-Ray.

This... actually makes sense.
