Wade Wilson—Deadpool

Yeah, it's still a super hero, but it's topical this time. Deadpool was a massive success and a great apology for the crap we got in X-Men Origins.

Part of me considered writing this post in first person for a fourth wall gag, but I don't think it'd come across all too well.

Name: Wade Wilson

Wade Wilson was an ex-spec ops dishonorable discharge turned hired gun. He was good at his job, but was known for having a bit of a soft spot and always, always joking around. After meeting the love of his life, though, he was diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Since treatments couldn't help, he turned to a shady program that triggered mutant powers in people, hoping that they might be able to cure him. The program turned out to be privately funded and inhumane, and after an ungodly amount of torture and stress, they triggered a mutation in Wade that increased his strength, coordination, accuracy, and gave his cells the ability to heal from anything. Anything. Unfortunately, this had the rather nasty side-effect of distorting his flesh, making him look like a monster.

Wade managed to escape, destroying the facility, and went after the man that ruined his face. This year-long hunt for Francis pushed his skills to the limit, getting him to acquire a costume and lots and lots of guns—he just keeps on forgetting them. He acquired his personal motto (maximum effort) and went on a spree, killing more than 40 men in his quest for vengeance.

He's also notable for being completely and utterly aware of his existence within the big screen, spending a large portion of his movie speaking directly to the audience (and, if he ever shows up in your game world, is probably going to talk directly to your players.
