>Every normie and their mother loves him despite never viewing any of his source material
Why did he suddenly become popular 2 years ago?
>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.
hurr durr im more socially akward than u
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
more poeple than you think do know the source...
HE'S A SUPERHERO, BUT HE MAKES JOKES ALL THE TIME AND DOESN'T TAKE IT SERIOUSLY
As opposed to everybody's favorite actual super hero who makes jokes all the time and takes it fucking seriously
Because normies love meme spouting Faggots.
Deathstroke is better in every way
>play injustice with normalfag friend
>"Oh man i love deathpool, hes funny as fuck"
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.
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.
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.
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.
he was/is also a chatterbox in Marvel Heroes 2016 as a playable character with like, 3 different voice actors.
