See what I mean? Ryan Reynolds portrays Deadpool perfectly as the fun and deadly superhero. We hadn't heard of him since 'X-men Origins: Wolverine' where he plays the mercenary Wade Wilson as part of the government's mutants fighting squad. The film ended with Ryan Reynolds being turned into his alter ego Deadpool after going through multiple operations to make him the perfect mutant. In the last scene, it can be seen that Deadpool is still alive despite Wolverine cutting off his head.

The story line is supposedly that Wade Wilson has multiple organ failures and is forced to go through surgery (unfortunately it doesn't quite follow the 'Wolverine' story) on nearly all of his major organs. Throughout this experimental ordeal he has the support of his girlfriend Vanessa aka Copycat, played by Morena Baccarin, who stays by his side through the procedure that gives him his powers.

After the procedure, Deadpool hunts down the person responsible for ruining his life. Throughout the film he is often assisted by his best friend Weasel, played by T J Miller. Despite his dark humor Deadpool is a character with a very dark and sad past, it almost makes us hope he didn't go through it. But without that, how would we have the Deadpool that we all love so much?
