What is Deadpool's Resistance to Telepaths?

#1 Posted by charlespdk (32 posts) - - Show Bio

I remember it being a point that telepaths couldn't read Deadpool's mind because of the constant regeneration of cells or some such story, but in Uncanny X-Force he's constantly getting controlled. If the former is true, wouldn't the same go for Wolverine? Is my memory faulty and there's no resistance?

It wasn't really explained well, but from time to time psychics are having trouble with him because his brain is basically a mess of cancer, dymentia, and breaking of the fourth wall.

Wasn't it that this "telepath's can't read Pool's mind"-thing has to do with Wade's nutty mind or rather minds? Or am I mistaken?

Deadpool is not insane, also even insane people could be mind raped by telepaths.

The fact Deadpool haves a mind thta cant be read, could be about the fact Deadpool minds, work in another way.

That's what I actually mean. Thanks for the correction.

Yup.

His mind is in a different level.

What does this mean? Am I looking for too concrete an answer? What about the arc in X-Force when Shadowking takes over his brain? Does that coincide with this idea of his warped brain?

@charlespdk: It basically means that depending on who writes Deadpool, he can be mind-controlled or not.

In one book, Deadpool can't be mind-controlled because when a Telepath tries to enter Deadpool's thoughts he finds himself inside Deadpool's 'insane' mind. So the Telepath can indeed enter Deadpool's mind, but has trouble trying to control what goes on because Deadpool is nuts. Part of the explanation for this is also the fact that Deadpool's artificial healing factor doesn't only regenerate his healthy cells, but also his cancer cells. So essentially, Deadpool's regeneration and his cancer are in a constant battle of destroying and creating healthy cells.

In another book Deadpool can be mind-controlled because he isn't depicted as being crazy. He has a 'regular' mind, even with the whole healing-factor/cancer regeneration theory. So he can be controlled just like everyone else.

Honestly, you shouldn't try to think about it too much and just go with it. Because most of the time writers tend to think of their own ways to handle a character's powers.

@ShirEPanjshir: you spoke words of wisdown, brother.

It's a comic book anyway, many things won't make sense and we'll see differente things depending on the writer.

Deadpool's mind is in a constant flux because his entire body, even his brain cells, is constantly in a stage of degeneration and regeneration.

The way I see it is that telepaths can read his mind but they cannot spend much time in it due to his insanity in Thais dimension and if they can get in for long enough they have to sought though it all to find the right memory or what makes him tick

Deadpool is not insane, also telepaths have mind raped insane people on the past.

@ShirEPanjshir: I am the only one, that haves notice that the cancer could be a wrong informations, i mean, for the way Deadpool looks, is not cancer.

I've never been 100% on what makes him ugly. Was it the actual procedure (cutting his skin up and making him look like hamburger meat) or his cancer flesh that just keeps regenerating (which is weird to be countered with a healing factor since cancer is just an overproduction of cells that the healing factor would have to keep in check. ).

And since when cancer cuase anything like that?

If i am honest, i belive Deadpool used to have another problem, regeneration would never cure cancer, it would make it worse.

So the guys should have another problem, he just thinks it was cancer, that would also explain why he dont have hair.

Deadpool was diagnosed with cancer, so he does have cancer.

His skin, however, was even a surprise for both his doctors on Weapon X and himself.

It was never clearly explained, but we were lead to believe it was his own body reaction due to the adition of the mutant gene into his body.

#16 Posted by MetropolisKid41 (515 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah and that seems to be the only thing that makes sense, otherwise you'd think his healing factor would have healed his face, but if his body continues to reject or react to the mutant gene it would stay damaged. Kinda crazy.

#17 Posted by charlespdk (32 posts) - - Show Bio

I didn't think about it being a reaction to the mutant gene itself. Plus, I just don't think the writer's spend much time thinking about how a healing factor works on a cellular level and the actual reaction it would have to a cancer patient whose cells are actually multiplying to an excessive degree.

#18 Posted by MetropolisKid41 (515 posts) - - Show Bio

There are a lot simpler less complex things with deadpool that I don't think the writers spend much time thinking about.

#19 Posted by ReVamp (22863 posts) - - Show Bio

Had to do with the cells in his brain. Wolverine's healing factor is different.
