Deadpool is magical. Not in the literal sense, but in the sense of how he makes his fans feel. He is so out-there and insane, you cannot help but lose yourself a bit in the character and forget about all the crap going on in your own world for a bit once you enter his. And with his own movie coming soon, how does one new to Deadpool fever catch up? DenOfGeek has you covered with a rather extensive piece about Deadpool’s history through film and TV and games.
Ultimate Deadpool made a rare and…not quite in-character appearance in Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, a game based on the idea of 616 Spider-Man, Ultimate Spider-Man, Spider-Man Noir, and Spider-Man 2099 teaming up. In the comics, Ultimate Deadpool has made only one major appearance as a military man who hates mutants so much that he had himself enhanced into some kind of cybernetic killing machine who kills mutants on an illegal internet show for kicks. In the game, he’s brought back and is more like his goofy 616 self, more about telling jokes than being bitter and bigoted. Even this alternate reality version of Deadpool is voiced by Nolan North.
I loved his role in Shattered Dimensions, and thought that was one of the best levels of the game. Also, his turn in Hulk Vs. was nothing short of hilariously badass. Well worth checking out for new ‘Pool fans.
