Rob Liefeld

Shrouded in stolen identities and clandestine secrets. Hero? Villain? Sociopath? He makes his own rules and plays nobody's game.

A gun for hire, Wade Wilson led a relatively content life accepting dangerous missions for profit, until the day he was diagnosed with cancer. Leaving the woman he loved, Wade accepted an offer of salvation from Canada's Weapon X Project. Wilson received an experimental treatment which gave him an artificial healing factor much like Wolverine's. The process cured his cancer, but left him horribly disfigured. His appearance became so mangled that he slipped into the darkest pit of his soul, becoming the Merc-With-A-Mouth known as Deadpool.
