Wade Wilson grew up the product of both sexual abuse from his mother and physical abuse from his father. For years he suffered at the hands of his parents until his father went too far and a beating sent him to a hospital. From there after his mother ran off with a lover and his father was deemed unfit Wade was placed into state care where he suffered further abuse. Wade learned to fight back from a young age and he hasn’t ever really stopped fighting since even though in a lot of ways he has already lost. He dropped out of high school his sophomore year although this has no accounting for his actual intelligence. Despite his projected idiocy Wade is intelligent; although not a genius, he is does have exceptional mental math skills and can calculate things on the fly which is a requirement given the field he went into. Because he dropped out of high school Wade could not officially join the army, he did however become a gun for hire. Though he only took on jobs for those he deemed deserved it. He was renowned as the merc with a mouth, a testament to his wit and humor, Wade was an exceptional and talented mercenary.
It was the highlight of his life, taking down the bad guys he was almost a hero. However it did not last long as soon Wade was diagnosed with stage IV inoperable cancer. It changed him; Wade became darker and a little more morbid as time went on. He didn’t much care about the reason for his jobs anymore as long as he was getting paid he was happy. It wasn’t long before he was contacted by a man named Stryker who wanted Wade to be part of his ‘special team’ in exchange for a cure to his cancer. Wade jumped at the opportunity. Unbeknownst to Wade was the truth behind Stryker’s offer, he was to be a guinea pig in a new super soldier program. Wade was tortured and experimented on for years. Both his body and mind were twisted into unimaginable and unrecognizable shapes. Wade’s tenuous grasp on reality snapped and after the events on the island, where he was experimented on, he once again became a mercenary this time operating under the name Deadpool.
Wade suffers from a laundry list of disorders including but not limited to; auditory hallucinations, as well as visual although these are less frequent; he has periods of disassociation including some memory loss, mood swings, paranoia, narcissism, and insomnia. Wade is emotionally disturbed and although never formally diagnosed, does have some sociopathic tendencies, and he is also histrionic. Wade is definitely not a good guy but he isn’t exactly a bad one either. He does background checks now to make sure that the people he kills deserve it rather than just accepting the highest bidder. He has made a bit of a name for himself which has put him on The New Frontier’s radar he has had limited interactions with the organization before their current offer to set Wade up with a permanent and stable job. He has accepted the offer although under false pretenses as he still takes jobs as a mercenary from time to time. S.H.I.E.L.D has used him for minor assassination missions in the past for jobs too dangerous for regular people although he’s never become an official agent it’s not like he could pass the psych evaluations anyway.
