Sometime during the 1980's, A former Special Forces soldier Wade Wilson, served with the U.S. army to take down a terrorist group, led by a soviet Red Skull. He was soon dishonorably discharged. Months later, Wade was recruited by Col. William Stryker to join a top secret black ops team called The Alpha Flight sponsored by the Canadian Government after acknowledging his unique skills he had on the battefield. But before he could join, he was to participate in a experimental treatment through cybernetic enhancements that gives him powers and abilities of a super-soldier. The members of the team were Agent-Zero, Bernard Hoyster, John Wraith, Domino, Wolverine and Victor Creed. They reformed on several missions, one mission is to apprehend a hostage situation in La Citadel in Quebec City and the governor general was held prisoner in the building full of superhuman terrorists. After the team apprehended the terrorists and saved innocent lives including the Governor.
Birth of Deadpool
In the late 90's, Wade retired from being part of the Alpha Fight and wanted to live a normal life and fell in love with a mutant prostitute Vanessa Carlysle, with whom he shared dreams of a better life until he discovered that he was diagnosed with cancer. Wilson then broke up with his girlfriend Vanessa and contacted Stryker to see if their was a cure for him. He was offered hope when a new scientist named professor Thorton was bought into the superhuman enhancement project known as Weapon X. This scientist had ideas of how to enhance mutant agents, Mutants and humans, sometimes genetically, sometimes surgically. Wade came back only to participate in the project to cure his cancer and was one of the test subject for Thorton's experiments.
While he was being experimented on, he soon realized they were actually attempting to create an army of superpowered individuals under Stryker and Thorton's control. His cancer was temporarily arrested via the implantation of a healing factor derived from Wolverine which allowed him to heal and regenerate from any wound. The only problem, however, was that it also horrifically deformed his entire outer layer of his flesh. As a result, he was rejected from the Weapon X Program and sent to a government facility where failed superhuman operatives were treated. However, unknown to the Canadian government, the patients served as experimental subjects for Doctor Francis Fanny aka Ajax, with the patients placing bets in a "deadpool" as to how long each subject would live. Francis subjected Wilson to various torturous experiments for his own deranged satisfaction. Wade attempted to escape and made his way to Francis. Wilson impales him in the chest with a metal pole and left him there for dead. Now taking the name Deadpool, he escaped from the facility with his fellow patients.
Following his escape, Deadpool moved to Central City in the United States and started a new life as a mercenary for hire donning a costume in keeping with his new identity with his best freind Weasel serving as his weapons dealer and tech-guy for Deadpool. However, unknown to Deadpool, Francis survived, and underwent surgeries and experiments by Thorton and gained increased agility and the inability to feel pain. He then resurfaced years later and hunted down and killed many of the surviving members from the Weapon X project in order to exact his revenge on Deadpool.
