"stupaman said:SIKE!"he is a mutate like spider-man. "No he isn't.He's a human."
is Deadpool a mutant?
Wolverine is a mutant. Deadpool is a human who was given healing powers by the agency of Canada who worked for the Weapon Plus program(Weapon X) and broke off on its own known as Department K. He fell in love with Death and later on Thanos made him immortal so they could not be together for Thanos also loved her.
wow i know it's old, but this was the dumbest conversation ever. wolverine IS a mutant, deadpool is not.
not sure why you people think wolverine's not. nobody cares what Loeb says. if you just pull up the official wolverine page on the MARVEL site, it says right on there that he's a mutant. i'll even link you. loeb may have written a story that was his own idea for an origin story or something, but it's not canon if it's saying he's not a mutant.
Deadpool is a human mutate that got his powers from the Weapon-X program trying to replicate Wolverine's healing factor, although Deadpool's healing factor is very different from Wolverine's. It's faster, he can regrow limbs and his head, it's mentally driven to a partial extent, and it's constantly active. Perhaps because it's an imperfect replication.
Although, the "Age of Apocalypse" and "House of M" storylines suggest that Deadpool is indeed a mutant. This could be made canon since the procedure to gain Wolverine's healing factor failed and that he didn't get his healing abilities until he was dying and his powers manifested with an eerie green glow. Also, as I said, his healing factor is different from Wolverine's.
