Why Deadpool is The Best (anti)Hero
This post is going to contain adult language, it’s Deadpool, just a fair warning.
I’m going to be nice and leave out Deadpool 2 for those who have not seen it. I’ll wait to delve in to Deadpool 2 until the DVD is out or something for the respect of an amazing movie, there will be hints but nothing more … .this is more comics than anything
Deadpool is my personal favorite hero even if he is an anti-hero. I had enough money leftover on my gift cards and not enough money otherwise to see another movie and I had to choose between Infinity War and Deadpool 2; I choose Deadpool 2. Deadpool has a strong place in my heart, he is in my opinion a hero, a hero that chooses to do what’s right even if it means making the hard decisions, which ironically makes him an anti-hero. I’m going to point out more of his characteristics that make him a genuine hero and the writers amazing. Get ready ladies and gents this list is going to be long.
Deadpool pulls up his mask for Hawkeye to read his lips
He also took a bullet for Hawkeye cause he can regenerate and Hawkeye cannot.
See? Since Clint Barton (Hawkeye) is deaf Deadpool helps him out. Deadpool knows sign language as well but I do not know if Deadpool has used it with Hawkeye.
Deadpool’s mom died of cancer
Deadpool’s dad was abusive
Now for those who have seen the movie (both) you know Wade must have been thinking a whole hell of a lot more when he got cancer than just about Vanessa (if Ryan Reynolds is really keeping to the comics). We also know Wade is nothing like his father, he loves kids and would never hurt one (hint at second movie).
Deadpool is pansexual and bisexual
When Deadpool came out in the 70s/80s this was meant to make people uncomfortable and challenge the stigma and make Deadpool even more awesome.
Deadpool has Chronic Pain
From the mutation he has pain and 75% of his money goes to pain meds and bullets. He is broke a lot.
Deadpool is insecure Deadpool has tried to kill himself numerous times Deadpool is down to earth and struggles a lot.
Deadpool is not afraid to do what’s right, even if he gets in trouble
This is a big hint at the second movie and I’m just going to leave this here.
Deadpool reads his own comics
Okay…does this make him a better hero? No, not really….it does make him an awesome hero though.
Okay, Deadpool cares. He genuinely deep down behind the sarcasm cares a lot about people. He cares about people getting hurt, he cares about people who hurt and doesn’t want to see people hurt (unless they screwed him over). He just doesn’t let shit get handled the “right way”, it gets handled Deadpool’s way which in the end is almost the right way but the “hero way” cause people are usually dead. He is a anti-hero cause he won’t follow the correct law to get it done. How many “heroes” have done that? My point is Deadpool is one of the most caring-complex-down-to-earth heroes and deserves a lot of respect.
