He's breaking the fourth wall!

Seem's like every comic Deadpool's in he's  acknowledge that there is a world outside the comic and that he's even in one. This picture is from Cable & Deadpool 49, but almost all of Deadpools: Wade Wilsons War is him in the Past narating what is going to happen in the future when he goes on trail for the fiasco in Mexico. 

I love it, some people hate it though... they say that it takes them out of the comic since Deadpool is reminding you your reading a story not living in the fantasy world. I personally think it's hillarious. Makes me laugh every time. It's just part of Wade's charm as a human being. Just like his inner voices, softer side, and his funny, sometimes deranged banter.

" @iloverobots: breaking the 4th wall = when the character in the story talks to his audience. he steps away from the "script" or "story line" to acknowledge us as the viewer or reader  in this case, Wade is letting us know that Cable will most likely be back in a Crossover. SHE didnt get it because he wasnt supposed to really say that  still confused?

I know what breaking the fourth wall is -- I've seen Malcom in the middle. I'm confused by this thread though... Deadpool has been breaking the fourth wall of years, why talk about it now?

Er...if you're talking about Wade Wilson's War, that fiasco/trial thing, it's not only alternate universe, but it's also got a twist at the end that makes it...super-not-canon.

That's one of the main things that DP is known for, I too find it funny becasue it gives writers a chance to poke fun at things such as character deaths (as seen above) since it's true, Cable probably will come back like that, same with Nightcrawler.

It's a signature of his, remove that and Deadpool's just not what he is today

Not just comics, video-games too, has not done it in animation or movies YET though.

@eganthevile1: Now that you mention it, I only now realize that he never broke the 4th wall in Hulk vs Wolverine, or did he?

No 4th wall breaking here, a lot of wisecracks of course though!

I find that it doesn't necessarily take me out of the comics, it makes me more drawn in! I especially love the other character's reactions where they just don't know what to think!
 
Here's an especially funny one with Spider-Man:

It would be funny if they did an issue of Deadpool Team-Up with She-Hulk, she is also a fourth-wall breaker after all

@eganthevile1: 
She-Hulk owns the 4th-wall break record.
God just look at Byrnes run on Sensational!

That's not breaking the 4th wall anymore, they're gonna blast it down, brick by brick

Deadpool knows he is a "fictional" character, then nothing changes when he change of universe, that why he do it even in videogames.

Just can't help but remember that line from the early issues of Way's run, the part with him training Deadpool-Skrulls, talking about too many pouches and him shouting out to Rob (Liefeld, of course)
can't find a pic

I was just giving an example, i mean, he does refers to "issues", crossovers and sometimes shout outs to creators, makes him an even funnier character

Deadpool did break the 4th wall in wolverine vs hulk, he did it when they captured wolverine. As the camera zooms out he yells strike an angry poses NOW and then everyone does an angry pose. I count that as him breaking the 4th wall.
