>Every normie and their mother loves him despite never viewing any of his source material

Why did he suddenly become popular 2 years ago?

Good writters.

>2 years
More like 8 or so. It was around the time of Dark Reign that he started popping up as reaction images from normies.
>>
>>79791563
Normies love everything with a movie without knowing anything about the source material.
>>
>>79791563
Source materials can be horrendous. The movie is much better than a lot of Deadpool runs
>>
>>79791610
>Normie sees superhero movie
>Wikipedia's the superhero they see
>Read character history
>Go see sequel
>Complain that it's not like it was "in the comics"

Rinse and repeat.
>>
Because he turned into a meme and pages started turning up on Facebook and 9gag and shit. Plus that one cosplayer who's always posing for shenanigans. Normies love that guy.

It's better than Way's. It's as good as everyone else's
>>
>>79791563
Wolverine: Origins and Waypool.

Prior to that, Wade struggled to support a single book for years. Then after Origins they did a massive Deadpool push -- he went from sharing a book with Cable to having four ongoings (most didn't last long, but still, that's Superman/Batman/Spider-Man territory). He's just been going up from there, to the point he's now a card-carrying Avenger with his very own movie.

The collections sell exceptionally well, which is why there's almost always a Deadpool mini or two going on (which also sell well for mini's), so they can sell another collection.

Good costume. Writers are shit

>>79791646
I fucking hate when people do that. Sometimes I read up on a character's prior history when I want to know interesting that that 90% of the time doesn't factor into the character's backstory anymore but fuck if I didn't at least read the comics I was talking about.

Anyone know why he suddenly became megapopular in-universe?
How does an assassin-for-hire get so much publicity?
And even if, why is he more popular than IronMan, Spiderman, or any other non-killer psycho?
He is still basically a villian after all these years.
>>
>>79791839
Is he really all that popular IN-universe?

It was my understanding that Wade still is basically ignored and forgotten about by every supergroup that isn't the X-Men.
>>
>>79791578
He was popular before this run.
>>
Question? When did you faggots replace "Normalfag" with "Normie"?

Normie sounds like a creepy fan of the fat guy from Cheers.
>>
>>79791563
video games and cartoons.
>>
>>79791863
With civilians he's somehow become an untraviolent celebritard. He houses the "Unity Squad" Avengers in the back of his Deadpool themed merchandise store. He even finances them. He even outsources his mercenary workload to killers with brand recognition costume. WTF?
>>
>>79791863
In his current series he is the new leader of the Avengers and every third person in New York is wearing at least two kinds of Deadpool merchandise. I've only read the first issue, so I have no idea how it happened, as to my understanding, it started with a time skip.
>>
>>79791998
We should come up with a nickname for Norm that only we use. I vote 'Brocktoon.'

>>79791563
>thinks Deadpool being popular was a recent phenomenon

newfags leave.

Maybe he's got Hobgoblin doing his PR work?

I want /v/ to leave.

That's totally what Kingsley would do for him.
But NO.

normie came from /r9k/

>>79792020
Just last week it was explained.
Solo disguised himself as Wade to get a bigger paycheck in a public job, making the Deadpool a hero in the public eye. Wade caught wind, and decided to cash in an turn his name into a brand, and recruit other Mercs under his name, so they can all get a cut of the cake.
>>
>>79792107
Fucking faggotfags at /r9k/ ruin everything.
>>
>>79792137
I guess that explains the Heroes for Hire group. I'm going to be honest. I never heard of Solo before that comic and I still have no idea who the fuck he is.
>>
>>79792172
An old Spiderman enemy/ally from the Big-Gun '90s.
>>
>>79792140
That's why everyone uses them now, right?

Face it, /r9k/ is ahead of the curve. Get with it or get left behind, gramps.
>>
>>79791563
Deadpool didn't get popular until Way started writing him.
>>
>>79792140
I think you mean faggies, Anon.
>>
>>79791563
9gag. i shit you not it's all 9gag's fault
>>
>>79791563
Macro image sharing websites like Reddit, Tumblr and 4chan let people cut panels from Deadpool comics and post them plus the memes during Waid's run certainly made him popular.

Good film, good audience, good figma, good ongoing: it's never been better to be a fan of Deadpool.
>>
>>79791591
This.

Also, OP failed to realize he's been in a fuck ton of video games for over a decade now and was really prominent in the MvC3 materials.

>newfag desperatly tries to fit in with the retarded "normies, reeee" crowd

Get used to be called a fag a lot.

He is only popular because his fans are so ridiculously vocal. Then his game and now a movie.

Because normies love meme spouting Faggots.

Deathstroke is better in every way
>>
>>79791563
Cable and Deadpool is when his character started getting popular but it was during Daniel Way's run when he really blew up in popularity.
>>
>>79791646
The "Deadpool has always been bloody and ultra violent" crowd for example, or at least tjey never read anything before Cable and Deadpool.

He also says shit like how hes a huge batman fan and has only played the arkham games. He tries to show off his batman knowledge.

You've never read a Deadpool comic before, have you
>>
>>79791863
Cap made him an Avenger since him and Wolverine kind of bonded with Deadpool in this story >>79791578 to the point Steve and Logan became friends with Wade.

Also Wade is trying to be a hero despite being messed up so being an Avenger is kind of providing him with a motivation.

>>79792020
He is not the leader but the guy who finances them (which he did before Cap asked him to join) since Stark went broke and him and Steve are just barely speaking to each other and filthy rich Spider-Man quit the team because he can't stand Deadpool.
>>
>>79791563

Image sharing sites and memes made him popular amongst normies despite they'd never read any of his stuff.
>>
>>79791578
The quality of comics never have anything to do with the popularity of the character. Just look at Spider-man. Hell, Deadpool became popular as a result of Way's run, which was the worst Deadpool run of all.
>>
>>79794152
what character development has deathstroke gone through over the past twenty years, including highlights of pivotal moments?
>>
>>79791563
I think it's because of that youtube channel, oh and MvC 3
