Secrets Revealed in DEADPOOL #29 - ORIGINAL SIN Tie-In

And here we thought Deadpool was an open book.

This May, the shocking truth about Deadpool’s family comes to light in DEADPOOL #29 – an Original Sin Tie-In! And everything you thought you knew about the Merc With the Mouth is about to change.

Nobody knows the full story of Deadpool’s origin, or what happened to his family – even Wade himself. Manipulated at the hands of Butler and the brutal Weapon Plus program, Wade Wilson was transformed into the indestructible killing machine known as Deadpool.

But there is more to the story. Before being fully indoctrinated by Butler’s offshoot of Weapon Plus once and for all, all ties to Wade’s past had to be severed. Now, thanks to the energies of The Watcher’s all-seeing eyes, S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents Adsit and Preston have uncovered the terrible secret of Deadpool’s family. And the shocking truth about their fate will shake you to your core!

“Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn have struck a perfect balance in their run on Deadpool,” says editor, Jordan D. White. “They know how to bring the funny, but they’ve also been able to reveal the horrific trauma twinkie that lies just beneath Deadpool’s deep-fried batter exterior. To mix disgusting body metaphors in with that food metaphor, the particular scab that they’re peeling off with this story is covering a wound Wade doesn’t even know he suffered…and one that might just be too much for him to handle.”

What horrors lay in Deadpool’s past? And what will happen if they come to light? The earth-shattering truth about Deadpool’s family and their gruesome fate stand revealed this May in DEADPOOL #29!

Are you saying this in a negative way?

So far they've been pretty good about changing things in a way that's presented as an advancement of the story rather than an out-and-out retcon. I like that, it's creative. Anyway, Wade's past has never really been that well established, for a time no one was even sure whether he was Canadian or American and I'm still not really sure whether a consensus was ever reached on that, they just kept changing it back and forth, along with everything else about his origin.

@chicken_chokergeist:

about 3 years ago i read a comic detailing Deadpool's origins. It seemed pretty legit at the time. As a boy his father walked out him and his mother, and stuck her with bills and debt that she couldn't afford to pay. Being 8 years old, Wade thought his father leaving and mom's depression was his fault. So he grew up believing that he was a burden to everyone in his life.

That was in Cable/Deadpool wasn't it? I remember that being pretty good.

Even if this is a retcon, it already has backing up to support it.

In The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly, Deadpool discovered that Butler had been implanting false memories into him. The reason behind his multiple origins has been revealed. Which was actually a bit of a genius move by both Posehn and Duggan, because now everything they write is "the real deal" because whatever is retconned will just be discarded as a false memory.

Except for the Cable and Deadpool origin, that one was already retconned when Deadpool shot butler and asked if he was born in Ohio, which Butler told him that he wasn't. Much to Deadpool's relief.

Deadpool is crazy...For all we know it could be all in his imagination lmao. His past is about as clear as the Joker's.

Care to elaborate? Because their awesomeness alone defeats your statement. Either you hate funny lines (Pocketpool was hilarious) or you hate strong storytelling (you seriously dismiss that last arc?).

Or maybe it's just your opinion. In that case, it might help to clarify. Like saying, "In my opinion, [fill in the rest]." Until clarified, your statement adds nothing to this article, like how cool it is to get some solid origin story on Deadpool.

That was the funniest part in that story.

Somewhat awful... But could our Merc With a Mouth have replaced them with lemons?

I was about to brush that off as extreme creepiness on your part but Deadpools been a lot more violent since North Korea so its actually possible. Or just an artist thing..

With all this "who killed the watcher" stuff the only thing I can think of is Rorschach monologing "Somebody knows..." lol

Ugh, don't remind me. Why does Whedon hate Ant-Man so much? (Rhetorical)

Has Whedon said he hated Ant man? Curious.

Well I'm excited

@thecheesestabber: Yeah! I had a conversation with a friend once where I asked him: "If you were in a comic book universe what role would you play there?" He answered: "I don't know but you'd be the most disturbing villain there... Maybe not the deadliest but a villain for sure."

I guess "extreme creepiness" fits the bill. :/

@sora_thekey: He wasn't my friend though

*Pulls of my face to reveal a new face*

IT WAS ME

*DUN DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN*

Join us in the Creepyness we want your lemons o.o

(And like I said it could actually be lemons, with DP's new way of life ((I mean the acid bathe to the henchmen c'mon)) it could be lemons)

No, but he seems determined to keep him out of the Avengers (and Ultron's origin) for as long as possible.

@thecheesestabber: At this time lemons are really expensive (At least where I live)... How 'bout we try to fit golf balls into those eye sockets?
