Real Name: Wadey Wilson
Search for 'Deadpool (Marvel)(Ultimate)' on Amazon
Deadpool first appeared in the Ultimate Marvel continuity along with the Reavers, where they assaulted the X-Men's mansion during a visit from Peter Parker. He and his team used disguising technology to impersonate the X-Men and surprise them one by one with mutant-gene-targeting stun guns. He is hired by Mojo to kill mutants for sport on television. Deadpool was only truly seen in the last panel of the book, which confirmed the removal of his yellow-worded speech bubbles and a few changes of his costume from his standard Earth-616 counterpart. His outfit is still predominantly black and red.
This Deadpool appears to be a human supremacist working with the Genoshan government to hunt down mutants for sport on live television. According to the network, he was a sergeant named Wadey Wilson and after surviving death-defying action in the Wakanda Wars in the early nineties, took the name Deadpool.
At one point battling the X-Men and Spider-Man, it appeared that Deadpool was unmasked as Professor X, but this was quickly proved in the next issue to be a holographic ruse. Deadpool's true face was seen as having no skin and portions of his skull missing, covered by a clear plastic helmet that made his face appear human-shaped when masked. Kitty Pryde phased through him, seemingly causing his cybernetic enhancements to explode and kill him, but by the end of the story arc, Deadpool appears to have survived, gripping his mask, ready to fight again.
While Deadpool shares very few similarities with his mainstream counterpart, his back-story has much in common with Donald Pierce, who in the mainstream comics was a mutant-hating cyborg who led the Reavers.
Likely as an ode to fans, in issue #93 of Ultimate Spider-Man, his subtitles on television while he appears talking are uniquely yellow. He breaks the fourth wall only to television audiences.
The Ultimate version of this character is not an alternate identity of the regular Marvel character as the Ultimate universe is a distinct reality.
