Wadey Wilson was a sergeant who after surviving death-defying action in the Wakanda Wars in the early nineties took the name Deadpool. Deadpool's true face had no skin and portions of his skull were missing, covered by a clear plastic helmet that made his face appear human-shaped when masked. Deadpool was a human supremacist hired by the Genoshan government to hunt down mutants on live television as sport.

Deadpool was one of the Reavers who assaulted the X-Men's X-Mansion during a visit from Peter Parker. He and his team used disguising technology to impersonate the X-Men and surprise them one by one with mutant-gene targeting stun guns. After capturing the X-Men, Deadpool also captured Spider-Man as a "bonus".[1]

While transporting Spider-Man and the X-Men to Krakoa, Deadpool showed some respect to Spider-Man's secret identity after stopping one of his men from unmasking him, possibly due to Deadpool's odd sense of "respect" to mask wearers.[2][3]

When Deadpool was unmasked it appeared that he was actually Professor X, but this was quickly proved to be a holographic ruse, which Spider-Man could easily see through with his spider-sense[4]. Eventually Spider-Man unmasked Deadpool's true facial identity, much to the shock and surprise of Spider-Man and the X-Men, while being broadcast live on television. This enraged Deadpool, causing him to fire his guns in a frenzy until Kitty Pryde phased through him, seemingly causing him to explode and apparently killing him. However, Deadpool miraculously survived his ordeal as his battered figure appear on Krakoa's shore as he watched the X-Men and Spider-Man leaving the island while clutching on to his recovered mask.

Bladed weapons. High-tech guns.

  • While Deadpool shares very few similarities with his mainstream counterpart, his backstory has much in common with Donald Pierce, who in the mainstream comics was a mutant-hating cyborg who led the Reavers.
  • Likely as an ode to fans, in issue #93 of Ultimate Spider-Man, his subtitles on television while he appears talking are uniquely yellow as a reference to the mainstream Deadpool's yellow speech bubbles, and furthermore he breaks the fourth wall only to television audiences.
  • Deadpool shows up in Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions as one of the bosses for Ultimate Spider-Man. Here, he captures Spider-Man and forces him to participate in another round of his show, this time on an oil rig in the middle of the ocean for a piece of the Tablet of Chaos and Order. Here, Deadpool acts like his mainstream counterpart, possibly due to the events of their first encounter. Additionally, it's hard to place when this takes place in the Ultimate timeline, though Deadpool mentioning Ultimate Spider-Woman shows that it's after the Clone Saga.
