If there’s one truth about Deadpool that fans have come to accept, it’s that he is never at a loss for words. They do not call him “the mercenary of the mouth” because he maintains a respectful silence while working. But what he lacks in stealth, Deadpool more than makes up for by being annoying.
Much of what Deadpool says is hilarious, if not downright crazy. After decades in the field and packing more words per page than even Spider-Man, there are definitely some quotes that stand out above the rest. The man may never shut up, but it’s also quite funny.
10 Breaking the classics
Deadpool is a Renaissance man. You stay well informed on a variety of topics, or at least the voices in your head do. They somehow know things that Deadpool doesn’t, but that’s just part of the man’s charm. It’s also part of what drives other heroes crazy
It’s honestly hard to say if Deadpool himself got this pop culture reference or if one of the voices told him to say so. But when he went into battle against an army of people who didn’t like him, ‘Pool released a classic, “LEEEEROOOOYYY JENKINS !!!” The man loves to play the hits.
9 Punking Out Spider-Man
Despite all appearances to the contrary, Deadpool is quite a woman’s man. It takes a special kind of woman to fall in love with him for various reasons. Usually, it is beings like the physical embodiment of Death who are in love with Deadpool.
At one point, she married a demonic being named Shiklah. She commented on having a virgin to sacrifice, and Deadpool responded with, “Yeah. Well, Spider-Man isn’t here.” That was a burn on the Wall-Crawler, but Shikah burned Deadpool when she left him for Dracula.
8 Has strong feelings about Star Wars
Deadpool has a lot of feelings. For the most part, they don’t make a lot of sense and usually confuse even him. But whatever he feels, he feels it strongly. And he usually reserves such powerful emotions for things he’s really passionate about, like Bea Arthur and Star Wars.
While traveling through space with an AIM scientist and Bob the Hydra Agent, the group began talking about Star Wars. The AIM scientist started defending the prequel trilogy and Deadpool blew his brains out. He then made a demand to Bob, “Say Jar Jar Binks is an abomination. Say it!”
7 X-Force wants him dead
No one in Marvel Comics hates spending time with Deadpool more than Wolverine. They may be connected by the Weapon X program, but that doesn’t mean they are friends. Well, Deadpool thinks they are friends. Wolverine, on the other hand, just can’t kill Deadpool, so he endures it.
When Wolverine’s X-Force team encountered a crazier-than-usual Deadpool, Wolverine pierced his head with claws. That basically didn’t do anything to the mercenary with his mouth, prompting him to say, “Scratching my brain. Ooo. Ooo. A little to the left, please.”
6 He likes breakfast food
Oddly enough, Deadpool is actually a master strategist. While he always seems to be flying through the seat of his finely tailored and overly tight pants, there is often a method to his insanity. That said, there is often more insanity than method.
Knowing that Cyclops was going to send Domino to spy on him, Deadpool set up a non-lethal trap that hung a chicken in vents and a lap pool filled with pancakes. Someone had to do them, of course. “… I love the smell of 372,844 pancakes in the morning. It smells like victory.”
5 Confusing the punisher
Over the years, Deadpool has had an interesting variety of friends to play with. Cable, Wolverine, Daredevil, and Spider-Man have spent far more time with him over the years than either of them would like. But in the case of the Punisher, he doesn’t like anyone in the first place, so it’s kind of a wash.
While they were on an adventure together, Deadpool suddenly killed someone. The Punisher is rarely caught by murder, but in this case it took him by surprise. Deadpool explained why he killed the guy, once again breaking the fourth wall, “Because you were going to do it and this is my book.”
4 Worried about Wolverine
Few Marvel heroes have been through the ups and downs that Wolverine has had. There have been many tragedies in his life, many more than a person should have to face. And nothing makes all of that worse than Deadpool trying to talk to him about it.
At one point, Wolverine had lost his healing factor. Being a surprisingly observant guy, Deadpool asked why his wounds weren’t healing. Wolverine explained that his healing factor was missing and Deadpool responded with, “Oh poor Widdle Wolvie. Where were you when you lost him?” Wolverine then threatened to kill him.
3 Trying to recreate movie history with Spider-Man
In the first Spiderman film directed by Sam Raimi, there is an iconic scene in which Wall-Crawler shared an upside-down kiss with Mary Jane Watson. Ignoring the complete lack of chemistry between Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunst, the scene remains memorable.
Deadpool being Deadpool, the mercenary with the mouth crouched in front of Spider-Man. Unsurprisingly, Spider-Man wasn’t interested in being a part of recreating that moment with him. Deadpool identified the wrong problem in the situation, “If it helps you, you can pretend I’m Wolverine.” It was not so.
two Bullseye is not sure what to make of it
The relationship between Bullseye and Deadpool is tumultuous, to say the least. They are definitely not friends, although they sometimes work together if the money is right. At best, they have a healthy work respect for each other. And even that is eerily dim.
When Bullseye posed as Hawkeye as part of Norman Osborn’s Dark Avengers, he was sent to deal with Deadpool. Bullseye actually commented, “You can’t be that stupid.” Deadpool took it over with a simple reply: “Don’t underestimate me.”
1 Making jokes about Gwen Stacy is wrong
Second only to the death of his Uncle Ben, the murder of Gwen Stacy may have been the most shocking event of Spider-Man’s life. He has never really dealt with the emotional consequences of his death. As such, it is something that continues to play an important role in your decision-making process today.
On a mission that didn’t involve Spider-Man in the least, Deadpool felt the need to comment on the quiet streets. Fortunately, Web-Slinger was not present to hear his old friend’s joke. “These streets are more dead than Gwen Stacy.” Too soon, Deadpool. Too soon.
