Deadpool, aka Wade Winston Wilson, is a fictional character which appears in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by writer Fabian Nicieza and artist/writer Rob Liefeld, Deadpool first appeared in New Mutants #98 (February 1991). Deadpool was first depicted as a supervillain in New Mutants and X-Force but evolved into a modern antihero, which likely contributes to the character’s success. Deadpool is known as the “Merc with a Mouth” for his tendency to talk and joke incessantly, a characteristic shared with The Amazing Spiderman, another popular American comic character who also appears in Marvel comics. This habit, no doubt, likewise contributes to the character’s success. Deadpool frequently breaks down the “fourth wall” to comment directly to readers for added humor and effect. Deadpool’s real name, Wade Wilson as an inside-joke to being “related” to “Slade Wilson,” or Deathstroke, a character which appears in rival DC comics.

Deadpool: Merc with a Mouth was published from September 2009 to September 2010. In this series, Deadpool teams up with Headpool from Marvel Zombies #3 and #4 in the Marvel Zombies universe. Each cover of Deadpool: Merc with a Mouth primarily pays homage to assorted American films — such as Jaws, Scarface, The Graduate and Pretty Woman — but also homages a comic and a rock album. The covers for Deadpool: Merc with a Mouth were drawn by Arthur Suydam, who also drew the covers for several comic series featuring the Marvel Zombies characters.
