|[List of appearances]|
Deadpool is a Marvel Super Heroes minifigure released in 2012. Deadpool appears in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes where he is the source behind the Red Power Bricks and narrates a series of bonus levels. A minifigure based on his transformation into Deadpool the Duck was given away in raffles at San Diego Comic-Con.
Description[edit | edit source]
Deadpool's head is mainly red, with black ovals with white dots in the middle, representing eye slits. His torso has printing to depict his body shape through the tight suit, black wavy strips on the sides, and a utility belt on the bottom of the torso. He has black arms with red hands. His legs continue the wavy stripes. On the left leg there is a few pouches. He has back printing depicting his belt, the black strips from the front, and the how suit fits against his back. Deadpool comes with a scabbard (first utilised by Dastan), two katanas, and a gun used by the ADU in Alien Conquest.
This version is based on his original appearance in the X-Men comics.
Deadpool the Duck repurposes Donald and Daisy Duck's headpiece from 71012 The Disney Series. He wears a red and black jumpsuit similar to the regular Deadpool figure, but his torso is less defined, the belt is more vibrant, and a pair of gun holsters hang from his shoulders. This variant uses short legs.
In the video games[edit | edit source]
Deadpool's appearance in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is identical to the physical minifigure. He wields two katanas and two guns. He has a room on the Helicarrier where the player can enter codes, read comics unlocked by collecting minikits in the main story levels, and buy Red Bricks found in the extra levels. He becomes playable once all the Red Bricks have been purchased. After that, he appears in the streets of New York with three more missions:
- He challenges the player to a race. (Reward: Deadpool's Scooter)
- He tells the player to bring him a sword that's shaped like a flamingo. (Reward: Deadpool's Helicopter)
- He teams up with the player to fight a bunch of A.I.M. Soldiers. (Reward: Aunt May)[source?]
He additionally makes a cameo in every main level of the game.
Like Wolverine, when his health is depleted, he turns into a skeleton until he heals, rather than falling apart. Unlike Wolverine, his skeleton is not adamantium coated. Amusingly his mask is imprinted on his skull and his guns become bones.
Background[edit | edit source]
Wade Wilson was once a ruthless soldier in the service of the cruel William Stryker, but he was sick with cancer. In exchange for a cure, Wilson joined the dangerous Weapon X program which transformed him into the hideously scarred but comically eccentric "merc with a mouth" Deadpool. Now he is an assassin/mercenary and talks freely, earning him the nickname "Merc with a Mouth". He is loyal to whoever pays him the most money. Deadpool has been both an enemy and an ally to the X-Men and the rest of the Marvel Universe.
Deadpool the Duck[edit | edit source]
Through a bit of weird science, Deadpool becomes trapped in the body of Howard the Duck. Howard, who is out of his body, meanwhile appears to Deadpool as his "spirit animal."
LEGO.com Description[edit | edit source]
This is a description taken from LEGO.com. Please do not modify it. (visit this item's product page)
Wade Wilson, the “Merc with a Mouth”, is unconventional, unpredictable, and almost totally unhinged. As a mercenary, he sells his formidable combat skills to the highest bidder, distracting his opponents with jokes and seemingly inane prattle to throw them off their guard.

Notes[edit | edit source]
- In all of Deadpool's appearances in Marvel media, he "breaks the fourth wall" meaning he is aware that he is a fictional character. In fact, one of his combo moves in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is the interaction icon appearing under the enemy and pinning them, while Deadpool's logo appears above them, trapping the enemy and bashing it with the latter.
- In the game, when Deadpool is idle and not being moved but still being controlled by the player, he will occasionally pull out a banana or a bone instead of a gun.
