Everyone's favorite foul-mouthed mercenary will be returning to movie theaters on May 17 in Deadpool 2, so now is the perfect time to take a look at the character's comic book history.
The original depiction of Deadpool was quite different when he first appeared in 1991, as he was initially depicted as a villain. It would take a little while for him to start breaking the fourth wall and to realize that he is, in fact, a comic book character.
While that crazy aspect of Wade Wilson is big part of what makes him so popular today, it was mostly done during his developmental years, as the creators knew that the comic could be canceled at any time. Because of that, they went big, and they went wild. The "Merc With a Mouth" is one of the craziest comic book characters there is, and his weird and varied history reflects that.
Take a look above, below, or right here to get all of the Deadpool that we could possibly fit into two minutes!
