It’s official. Deadpool is going to die in April.
Tragic news like the death of Deadpool shouldn’t come as a surprise, because if Marvel can kill off Wolverine then any superhero can find their head on the chopping block. Apparently, this critical point in Deadpool’s life has been planned since the first issue was released, but it still doesn’t make it right. The announcement was recently made on The Nerdist and #250 marks the issue in which Deadpool will no longer be around to make wisecracks while kicking butt. So before we say goodbye to the coolest assassin ever, let’s take a look at why everyone loves the rather unlovable Wade Wilson.
He Interacts with the Audience
In the entertainment industry this is referred to as “breaking the fourth wall”. One of Deadpool’s most notable characteristics is that he knows about the readers and he loves looking at the artist or reader every now and then just to make a sly comment. This hardly ever happens with other superheroes and we love Wade for doing this.
The Involuntary Hero
If you want to see a hero that is the exact opposite of Captain America in terms of goodness then look to Deadpool. For the most part he is on his own mission, making him much more relatable. But there are times when his heroic side comes out and surprises everyone. A good example of this was when Archangel was dying and he literally started cutting out chunks of himself to keep Archangel alive.
Deadpool has the Best Sense of Humor
There is never a bad time for Deadpool to make a very cool joke. His indifference about staying alive, who he insults and whether people like him or not adds a whole other dimension to his humor. For Wade Wilson life is a ride he intends to enjoy and nothing should be taken seriously, including himself.
Don’t Insult his Principles
Even though Deadpool doesn’t take many things seriously, don’t insult the things he does hold dear. For example, he hates the Star Wars sequels and the last guy who openly admitted that they were good got his head blown off. In other words, if he gives his opinion about something it’s safer to just agree with him.
His Agenda is Simple
While the Avengers and the X-Men are out saving the world, Deadpool just wants some cash and some fun. He can’t be bothered by the greater good even though he ends up being the hero more times then he likes to admit.
Fear is not in his Vocabulary
Deadpool can be outnumbered and overpowered, but you won’t see him flinch. Instead, he’ll make one of his sarcastic comments then run into the arms of danger without thinking twice. He has taken on some of the most powerful superheroes and villains out there and he’ll do anything to come out on top, even if that means hurting innocent people.
He doesn’t Care if you like him
The best part of all is that he doesn’t care whether anybody likes him. It’s in his nature to go solo and to please his own needs. If it happens that he saves the day then so be it, because he most likely didn’t plan it that way.
How will Deadpool Die?
According to the writers ULTIMATUM is going to be part of Deadpool’s last breath. They are out for revenge and he won’t have a choice but to take on every single one of them. Talking about going down in a blaze of glory, what better way to go? Nevertheless, it’s sad to know the series is going to end. Saying goodbye to the most interesting Marvel character isn’t going to be easy.
