Wade Wilson was born and raised in Canada. After attempting and failing to commit suicide, Wilson was drafted into a secret government training program. However, after medical testing, he learned that he had over forty cancerous tumors, and could not be operated on without being killed. To solve this problem, he volunteered for the Weapon X program, which gave him a healing factor based on Wolverine's. However, this genetic augmentation terribly disfigured him because the healing factor bonded to and accelerated the growth of the cancer as well. He was labeled as a failed experiment, and was sent to the program's Doctor Kilebrew, who was extremely cruel to his patients. This drove Wilson insane, and he broke out of the Weapon X laboratories, deciding to start a new life as a mercenary named Deadpool, due to how he always won the game played by inmates which involved guessing who would die next.
Deadpool has since gone on to battle with the likes of Wolverine, Spider-Man, and Daredevil, often for nothing more than mere amusement. He has also become good friends with Cable, despite their vastly different attitudes.
Despite his role as a psychopathic mercenary, Deadpool wrestles a lot with who he is and the world around him, and sometimes aspires to be a noble and self-sacrificing hero. That is, until he gets bored or depressed and goes to attempt any number of his convoluted schemes and wacky antics.

Left Out of Season OneEdit
"I got a bone to pick with you!"
Doom had a dream about his peaceful life with X-23, but he realized that this is never going to happen and suddenly woke up and heard Wesker's pleads to get him out of Max's TV, but turned it off. Max appeared in the living room and saw a bottle of Doom Equis, and when he tried it, he said that it tastes like "a battery acid... and butt". Doom and Max started to argue about Max's broken Arcade Stick, when somebody tossed a fake grenade inside. Guys hid behind the couch, and when they decided to watch what's happening, Deadpool appeared behind them. He said that he has a bone with Max to pick, because he [Max] left him out of Season 1. Doom suggested that training with Deadpool is going to be awesome.
After analysis of his gameplay, Deadpool forgot his script and accidentally found the Doom Equis bottle. After trying it, he said that it tastes like butt, and Doom snapped his fingers to send him away twice, but Deadpool teleported back.
When Max finished the talk about Deadpool's mobility, Doom and "The Merc With a Mouth" started to argue who's the best, and they were ready for a rap battle, but Max said this is not going to happen.
After the guys saw Deadpool's specials in action, they found a white speech box behind them. Max saw that something is written on it, and Deadpool read it. It appeared that M.O.D.O.K. placed a huge bounty on Max's head. When Max thought that Doom and Deadpool are going to kill him, Deadpool organized an internet poll to decide, should he kill Max or not.
"Are you excited? I'm excited, I love internet polls. You really get to know your fans and get their honest opinions
When the guys recieved the results, they discovered that most of people voted to kill Max, and Deadpool shot him dead. He and Doom mock Max's corpse, calling him Nicolas Cage and "Chad Kroeger-lookalike". Deadpool then left the house. Later Doom realized that he has power to change everything and rewound time back to the moment when guys received the results, and when Deadpool was reading it, Doom snapped his fingers making the results to change.
"You mad, bro?"
Deadpool saw the results and let Max live for a while. Guys started to learn Deadpool's Hypers and combos, but they were interrupted. Deadpool opened the door and saw two guys that asked to sign a petition for adding new characters for UMVC3, but when he learned that they were doing this to get Mega Man, he ruthlessly killed them.
Max challenged Deadpool to play MVC3, and after they finished, Deadpool decided to kill Max nevertheless. Doom tried to protect his friend, but he failed. But when Deadpool was about to kill Max, Wesker appeared in Max's TV and said that Deadpool's belt is loose. Deadpool accidently pressed his teleporter the third time and exploded.
Three on Three ShowdownEdit
"I'm alive! I'm alive!"
Deadpool had come to Taskmaster's home so they can meet up with their client. Knowing now that Taskmaster owns a mini-van, which he considers to have good fuel economy and has plenty of space to store his gear, he also thinks that it's better than Deadpools motorbike, which he dubs "a fruity scooter". And shot him when he was asked if they could pullover for a bathroom break.
They have met M.O.D.O.K. and later appeared in Max's house before Max, Doom and Strider. Suddenly Wesker appeared and told Max to learn more about Taskmaster when he, Doom and Strider will take on the villains. Wesker shot M.O.D.O.K. in the gem on his forehead, knocking him out and threw Doom and Strider out of his way to protect them form Taskmaster's bullets. Then he quickly defeated Deadpool. Taskmaster tried to shoot Wesker, but he dodged all shots. Then Taskmaster tried to tackle him, only to be grabbed, elbowed in his back and kneed in his stomach. Taskmaster has learned Wesker's teleport and made him retreat. Then Doom tried to throw a fish net on him, but was unsuccessful. They engaged in a fight when Deadpool woke up and started to fight with Strider. Taskmaster tried to slice Doom in half, but Doom caught the blade and used the Finger Lazers on him, knocking him out. Deadpool started to wildly shoot, only to hit M.O.D.O.K.. Strider summoned his Legion, though it was only Ammy. Deadpool tried to pet her, only to be bitten. Wesker and Strider beat up Taskmaster, and Doom used Doom's Time on him, exploding him.
Later when everybody left the house Deadpool was shown to be alive and once again mauled by Ammy.
