"No job is too dirty, no payday to big for the Merc With a Mouth - Deadpool!"
This figure includes a removable harness, two removable sword sheaths, two swords, one pistol, a removable leg holster and a non-removable choker, as well as 32 points of articulation and a display base. The figure is a rerelease of an earlier Marvel Legends Deadpool released by Hasbro in a ToysRUs exclusive 2-pack with a Warpath figure, and was only released outside of the United States as a variant (the alternative being the grey X-Force Deadpool, which was released in the US). The figure depicts the character in his red uniform, a costume he wears in the Marvel Comics when he is on solo missions. It is his traditional costume. There are four colors mainly used on the figure; red (costume), black (choker, guns, sword hilts and costume), silver (pouch buttons, upper harness and sword blades) and brown (lower harness, sword sheaths and pistol holster). The sword sheaths can be removed from the back of the harness and the swords can be removed from the sheaths. Deadpool's card back includes artwork which shows him holding an action figure of himself in one hand and popping off the head of a Doctor Doom figure in the other. It also includes a poster of the X-Force on his wall, which has Psylocke encircled on a heart in it, and a Mystique figure attached to a grenade. Series 3 of the Return of Marvel Legends line does not include a Build-A-Figure, but rather is called "Epic Heroes".
In the Marvel Universe, Deadpool is a mutate mercenary who is a member of Weapon X and the X-Force alongside Wolverine, Fantomex, Nightcrawler, Warpath, Psylocke, X-23, and Archangel, and also has frequent encounters with Wolverine's son Daken, as well as Domino, Taskmaster, and Cable. His name may or may not be Wade Wilson, and when he was diagnosed with terminal cancer he volunteered for the Weapon X program. He was injected with the DNA of Wolverine and developed a healing factor, but his skin and mind were left horribly scarred by the experience. Now Deadpool thinks in "little yellow boxes," as he puts it, and also has two voices in his head that advise him in decisions (one is childish, the other more intellectual). Part of his mental illness is the fact that he has an obsession with tacos, and does many random, destructive and pointless things. However, he does have morals and will never kill children. He is also a member of the Thunderbolts.
