Why Deadpool is Awesome

Today I'm writing about Deadpool for my blog series, "Why ____ is Awesome."

1. He's an Amazing Mercenary

No Caption Provided

For the most part, Deadpool is a hero, and can be pretty heroic when he needs to be. But sometimes he aligns himself with the bad guys and has absolutely no problem with it. What I love about Wade is that he's not really judgmental. For the most part, you don't see him hating on others, as he could get along with anyone, good guys and bad guys alike. That is why he's an anti-hero, because he doesn't really care.

2. He's Neutral

Deadpool has been a hero for the most part, but he doesn't have much problem going on the side of the bad guys. I think this is because he's not very judgmental. Usually, he doesn't hate on people or judging their actions, morally. He's a fun wildcard in the group where you don't really know what he's going to do next. Either way, he interacts well with both heroes and villains. Deadpool just doesn't care, which is why he's an anti-hero.

3. He Breaks the Fourth Wall/Unusual

I don't really like it when characters break the fourth wall, but I'll make an exception for Deadpool. He does it all the time, and it's always very funny when he does. He makes hilarious references to contemporary topics, confuses the heck out of those around him, and talks to you personally. It's engaging and makes him a wildly unique character.

As you can tell, he's very unusual. Wade is a parody of superheroes, who loves eating chimichangas, and is in love with Death herself.

4. Bob, Agent of Hydra

Because his sidekick, Bob, is also funny and completely incapable, unlike most sidekicks. He's a coward and is the perfect compliment to Deadpool.

5. He's Funny

At the end of the day, the biggest reason why Deadpool is awesome is because he's one of the funniest, if not the funniest, character in comics. He just almost never shut ups and has some kind of clever joke to pop out.

Still can't believe that Wade is the reason why we mainly we able to stop the Skrull Invasion. Also chimichangas!

Gail Simone's Agent X/Deadpool run is what got me back into comics after a long hiatus. They were my jam.

Really enjoyed this one, wonder if you could make a lobo one xD

Did he seriously make a "friends" reference :O so cool

Also that one with deathstroke, isn't it the other way around?

Thanks! Sure, I could make a Lobo one but idk when. I have tons of other character I'd want to do first beforehand. Yeah, it's the other way around but that's the funny part
