Here’s something I’ve happened upon that I’d like to share with you.
Recently I’ve started reading a Marvel comic; specifically that of Carnage Vs. Deadpool.
While reading that I realized that I was witnessing a transition in the character of the Merc with the Mouth.
A good portion of Deadpool’s personality is that he is a mercenary that would kill probably anyone for the right reason or money. Or both. He’s depicted as a 4th wall breaking loon with a loveable looser quality to him. As a result the majority of the well-known Deadpool stories have him getting into a situation largely of his own fault and getting put through the ringer as a result.
However, recently, I’ve started to notice some shifts as Deapool has changed hands. Typically he toes the line between being a lovable murderer and a complete degenerate by usually being pointed at the bad guys and failing when it came to socializing with (read: fighting) the good guys. Conversely, there are other interpretations.
