The Avengers are supposed to be "Earth's Mightiest Heroes," and Deadpool has kicked maybe 1/3rd of the Marvel universe's keester. Doesn't that make him one of Earth's mightiest?
Granted, he isn't exactly a "hero." But, he's whatever he wants to be. And he has been searching for a way to better himself, but can't seem to break old habits. So being an Avenger would nail two birds with one stone.
In an alternate reality, Deadpool was not only an Avenger, but was their leader. He called himself the "Swordsman."
