  • Rating: R

Special forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) is subjected to a rogue experiment that grants him accelerated healing powers. Shortly after, Wilson adopts the alter ego Deadpool, and with his new abilities and twisted sense of humor, goes on a hunt for the man who nearly destroyed his life.

The character was created by Rob Liefeld for Marvel comics and first appeared in “The New Mutants” vol. 98, released in February 1991. He started out as a villain for the series “The New Mutants” and “X-Force,” but began to evolve into an antihero and in 1997, a comic series in his name began. He also starred in a comic series alongside Cable, a mutant who was born Nathan Summers, the offspring of X-Men’s Scott Summers and Jean Grey’s clone, Madelyne Pryor.

The first Deadpool movie was an unexpected blockbuster and a second installment is already in the works. The first movie featured Ajax, played by Ed Skrein, as the main villain.

In both the comic and movie adaptation, Ajax is one of those responsible for his mutant transformation and for his “almost death.” The second movie will also introduce Cable and Domino, who is one of Deadpool’s love interest, and will serve as a introduction for the upcoming X-Force movie.
