Deadpool, real name Wade Winston Wilson, is a comic book character created in 1991 for the publisher Marvel Comics. His first appearance was in the comic book New Mutants #98. In 1997, Joe Kelly and Ed McGuinness created him his own series.
Deadpool debuted in the comic book New Mutants #98 (1991) by Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld. Nicieza and Liefeld designed him as a masked villain who preyed on the New Mutants with swords and handguns. Similar to Wolverine, he had incredible self-healing powers, but they covered him with tumors all over his body. Deadpool’s (“Wade Wilson,” red and black masked costume, adversary of the teen superhero group New Mutants) resemblance to the then-existing character of Deathstroke from publisher DC Comics (“Slade Wilson,” red and blue masked costume, adversary of the teen superhero group Teen Titans), which was not officially addressed by either Marvel or DC, was striking.
Deadpool appeared sporadically in the X-Men spin-off series X-Factor in subsequent years and was interpreted less as a violent villain and more as a sarcastic anti-hero. Comic book writer Joe Kelly, who penned the first Deadpool series (1997) and was a huge Spider-Man fan, wrote many action comedies in which Deadpool commented ironically on the deliberately overdrawn events. For Deadpool’s wordplay, Kelly drew inspiration from the similarly cheeky Spider-Man. As a running gag, many current films or series were parodied and often broke the fourth wall.
