Do you prefer immortal Deadpool or current Deadpool?

Did you, like me, enjoy Deadpool more when he had Thanos curse and couldn't die no matter what you threw at him, or do you prefer the current Deadpool who apparently can be killed?

I haven't read the last few issues of Deadpool (catching up) but I do have to say that the sound of Deadpool being immortal, like he was before, sounds better. Maybe because it allows Deadpool's insanity to run wild while if he wasn't immortal he would start to mature a bit more and maybe lose the characteristics that made him as popular as he is?

Immortal Deadpool,It gives him alot more privileges to do crazy things.

Immortal Deadpool, obviously. 
 
Part of the humor of Deadpool was how much damage he could take. What made him such an effective mercenary was he wouldn't quit and nobody could make him quit. Even if he was going against a target that no matter how many times he fought him he'd never win, the target would kill him or take him down and Deadpool would heal and just try again until his target would get annoyed and turn himself in or just shoot himself in the head to avoid the annoyance. 
 
Him being mortal takes away a bit of that comedic element.

Immortal, scarred Deadpool. It ads so much more to the character ~

I haven't read anything recent to know why he isn't immortal and scarred anymore though.

ya know I love deadpool , I want to see where this goes with his non scarred body. He has only been cured for like a total of 3 issues including the last x force and it has been fun for sure.

Immortal Deadpool is cooler becaue he does more crazy stuff that we can enjoy and laugh at.

Has it been confirmed that he is no longer cursed with life by Thanos? If that is the case then he is still somewhat immortal, but he can now be harmed and seriously injured. That being said I personally like the current Deadpool best. I've been a fan of Deadpool through it all, and to be honest he's become a walking bullet magnet no better than wolverine whom I also am a fan of. These two have relied on their healing factors so much that their fighting skills, agility, and reflexes are overshadowed by them. These guys take more damage then they should and it starts to create the question in your mind, how could these guys survive without their healing factors? In original Deadpool appearances he was insane yes but he was a lot cleaner with his actual jobs, if you incapacitated him it was because he simply didn't see it coming not because he was on the other end of your sniper rifle with his mouth wide opening invite you to try it just because he could survive it. I want to see a better Deadpool, a professional assassin and master martial artist who flips around with guns and swords and dodges incoming dangers and uses his brains better in combat while still being funny but values his life. I was getting bored with deadpools Boredom, in the comics he had done so much even he didn't know what to do with himself then we ended up in a familiar paradox of comics where he's trying to kill himself for the third time. I want a Deadpool who is cautious and is more about skill than being a another healing factor having bullet to the face taking moron, I support current Deadpool and even if it is temporary I want to see where this goes!

Deadpool's Immortality added a lot to his personality still a little too soon to say for sure if I dislike the current though

#13 Posted by PaperDemon (629 posts) - - Show Bio

I prefer immortal deadpool. That was the humor like when his head popped off and he was still alive. :)

#14 Posted by Necrotic_Lycanthrope (2388 posts) - - Show Bio

Immortal, although it is funny to see him get beat up worse than ever now that he's a regular Joe Shmoe in a mask.

#15 Posted by KainScion (2969 posts) - - Show Bio

@_Quickster_: at one point he looked like tom cruise. they even named him tom cruse or something similar. those were the crazy marvel days.

immortal. dying deadpool no fun. hes already lost a pinky. and paste pot pete............... really marvel? milk carton keith was unavailable?!

#16 Posted by Pwok21 (2459 posts) - - Show Bio

Current 'Pool, though I think we need to see more issues before making a decision.

#17 Posted by The Stegman (26100 posts) - - Show Bio

I just...can't picture DP without his immortality...it's like Superman without his strength, or  Wolverine without his claws.

#18 Posted by chefmcduck (1 posts) - - Show Bio

I think this storyline is going to end up with Deadpool becoming immortal again. It's far too early to really say. I think after reading 56, clearly you can see that being normal isn't really Wade's favourite thing.

#19 Posted by SupahForeigner (227 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm still annoyed how the only thing that made Deadpool a mutant they took away. Being immortal/having HF makes Deadpool insane, without immortality/HF then Deadpool isn't going to be insane and therefore not the character everyone has grown to like, imo. I do agree though that there is a good enough chance Deadpool will receive his immortality/HF once again, I hope he does. Deadpool isn't Deadpool without his HF tbh.

WTF they took away Deadpools healing factor? That sucks definitely won't be reading those comics.

#21 Posted by oraclefyre (936 posts) - - Show Bio

Weirdly enough, he was way more attractive when he was ugly. Yeah. Man, if they make him become sane I will go insane.

I'm down with "Can be killed" Pool right now.

#24 Posted by allhailme (286 posts) - - Show Bio

I want him to sharpen his skills to his old levels, and then get back the immortality.

#25 Posted by soduh2 (866 posts) - - Show Bio

Is there a way he can get his healing factor back without the scars?

#26 Posted by Duke_Nasty (1017 posts) - - Show Bio

I wouldnt mind it that much if it is for just a few issues but if he doesnt change back then I'll be pissed.

#27 Posted by SpiritOfTheWolf96 (11 posts) - - Show Bio

@allhailme: YES!!!!!!! Deadpool (no offense to my fav Marvel character) has gotten a bit sloppy. He's stll a badass, though. But once he gets used to fending for his life, hones his skills, and then gets his immortality back, he will be THE force to be reckoned with.

Immortal Deapool. I'm still not fond of him having his face back. Also, the lack of healing factor, if it's true, is just stupid.

Immortal Deadpool was pointless. A Street level hero who can't die has nothing to live for. I never understood why Deadpool ever had his own comics. He's a one dimensional character and he doesn't bring anything to the table you couldn't get from Wolverine,Daredevil,Iron Fist,Spider-Man,or the Punisher.

@Postacrat: Way appears to have skipped over a lot of continuity - especially for the last few arcs (Deadpool trying to kill himself would indicate that the Thanos curse isn't existent in Way's Deadpool). By rights his cancer should be now rampant and bringing him to a swift death as well.

Earlier Deadpool was decently complex. Certainly not 1 dimensional. Granted he is not for everyone. : )

I get that from Peter Parker and unlike Deadpool, I actually LOL at the things he does and says. It's interesting that you say Deadpool hasn't been written well in a long time. I've heard people say that Daniel Way brought depth to the character.

@Vance Astro: Quite the opposite, sir. Ask k4tz about Daniel Way's Deadpool. He made the character unreadable imo.

I like the oldschool Deadpool better. When Healing Factor didn't mean immortality and when writing a comics meant more than simply earning money.

The good old days...

I liked current deadpool more up till he lost his pinkie. Now It just kinda pisses me off and i want him to grow his finger back :(

The DEAD story arc was well written in my opinion, but now after reading the second part of Deadpool Reborn, I'm starting to get frustrated about Deadpool not having his healing factor.

#41 Posted by spiderpool94 (467 posts) - - Show Bio

@CannotSpellMyName: i love him being immortal. i thought he cared less then. but then again the deadpool reborn storyline is growing me toward mortal DP. he's kind of more of a risk taker now he's lost his immortality, but on the other hand when he was immortal he got cocky and and just trolled the most powerful of foes.

#42 Posted by Jibberish430 (1 posts) - - Show Bio

Deadpool mortal allows him to be with his love Death as a happy ending. Mayhaps those two will rule comicly chaotic in the aether of the god realms. Honestly though, he should retain his healing factor and lose his immortality/curse. Find a balance that allows him to fluerish. Once he has something to live for...like a puppy...he'll be okay until accepting the fate of death. Otherwise he'd go straight to his love. But the story can continue from there. (Deadpool babies!?)
