What is the origin of Deadpool? I know there is a chronological order on here but can anyone tell me which graphic novel contains Deadpool's origin, ie Weapon X to Wolverine, and how he actually became Deadpool?
Just adding this as another answer, event though it may not be entirely what you want.
The first ocurrence of his origins that I could find in my collection was in Deadpool #18 (1998)
In there, the origin is told as a flashback while Deadpool has some quite interesting interactions with Death.
There, his "origin" is shown as to how he joins the Weapon X program, why he is called Deadpool... the whole sherbang
The Comic is part of Deadpool Classic #4.
The whole story arc from Deadpool #1 on, collected in the first couple of Deadpool Classic volumes is IMHO an extremely well written story, so I highly recommend the whole thing for anyone starting out on Deadpool.
An inspection of Deadpool's entry in the Marvel Universe Wiki lists the following under the Origin section:
- Deadpool #-1
- Marvel Comics 1998 Annual Starring Deadpool and Death only $216.28 on amazon :D
- Deadpool #33
But the most recent incarnation of his origin story would be X-Men Origins: Deadpool
You may have heard there’s a Deadpool movie in the works. Anyway, Wade Wilson’s heard the same thing — and he’s determined to tell his own story before Hollywood screws it up.
Deadpool even hires his own screenwriter, who manages to get the Merc With a Mouth to open up like never before — revealing not only his origin story, but shocking details you’ve never heard before. We’re talking Oscar™ - worthy stuff here, people.
That is, unless Hollywood manages to screw it up anyway… One-Shot/Parental Advisory
