I liked that Ultimate Deadpool worked well in a group and was respected. I liked that Ultimate Deadpool was more serious and much more dangerous in contrast to Nicieza's 616 Deadpool at the time. And Ultimate Deadpool had a great costume.
And while he was a big turn from the 616 Deadpool, I expected that. The only thing that I didn't like was that despite Bendis' great sense of humor, Deadpool's wit, while ever present, wasn't funny. Ultimate Spider-Man made me laugh the whole time, but Ultimate Deadpool... well... I give him a B+ for effort. Oh, and I missed the yellow speech bubbles.
And I see alot of room for improvement in store for Ultimate Deadpool, and I think a great twist would be... he's a mutant with the same indomidable healing factor as 616 Deadpool.
But you must be asking "why would a mutant hunt mutants?" Well Ultimate Deadpool and the gang said it themselves, they don't like that any snot-nosed punk can have powers without earning them first.
Then you must be asking "Why would mutant-haters follow a mutant?" Well that can be answered pretty easily. Deadpool was a soldier, like them. They fought together in many battles and he climbed the ranks to being their commanding officer. To them, and himself, he earned his powers. And the next time he runs into Spider-Man or the X-Men, he'll probably think they earned their powers too.
You guys are now probably asking "if Ultimate Deadpool has that healing factor, how did he become a cyborg?" Well his healing factor is like a stream. If you try to cut the water, it just overlaps itself. But if you put a rock in the stream, the water will have to flow around it until the rock is removed.
The cybernetic implants is that rock. And after Shadowcat made that "rock" explode, the stream was able to correct it's flow. In other words, I think Deadpool will be very human-looking the next time we see him.
