* Even as a casual ComicBook/{{Deadpool}} fan, I have to wonder exactly why he's so bloody popular at the moment. So I looked at the state of the Franchise/MarvelUniverse [[UsefulNotes/TheModernAgeOfComicBooks at the moment]], and it became painfully clear. [[InAWorld In a]] CrapsackWorld where [[BlackAndGreyMorality you can barely tell the heroes from the villains]] and [[DarknessInducedAudienceApathy don't know who to cheer for]], where SpiderMan [[ComicBook/OneMoreDay made a a deal with the Devil]] and [[RunningTheAsylum many important stories are indistinguishable from bad fanfic]], Deadpool is different. He [[LampshadeHanging points out the absurdity]], he's just as confused about good and evil as the rest of us are. And most importantly, he's actually ''funny'', when damn near everyone else is painfully serious about wearing spandex and beating up other weirdos wearing spandex he's at least trying to crack funny jokes. Deadpool has been a shining ray of light in the darkness of the Marvel U, as goofy and fun as UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}} without the preachy morality, and reminds us who we're reading these damn things in the first place. - Sabre Justice

** Tropers/{{Stinkoman87}} just wants to add something: he's funny, but in a raunchy way, and uses guns. Deadpool is what would happen if someone made SpiderMan in the modern age.

* Deadpool's healing factor keeps his cancer in check by constantly regenerating cells killed by the cancer, to the point that if his cancer were cured, his healing factor would cause him to grow new cells until it killed him (look at those Skrulls that tried to duplicate his power). '''THAT'S WHAT CANCER ''IS''!''' Deadpool's body is essentially two warring cancers locked in a permanent stalemate with each other. No wonder he's insane...

Added DiffLines:

** The point isn't that Deadpool's a Good Guy by a reasonable standard. The point is that he's trying. A lot of heroes have an arc in their origin where they put on the cape, learn that with great power comes responsibility, etc. Deadpool started out on the other side and even when he fails (And he does. A lot.) he keeps trying. If Siren was the original impetus, trying to be worthy of her, Deadpool has gone way beyond trying to Get the Girl. There's a *reason* he can still work with the Marvel heroes whereas the Punisher can't. He's trying.

Added DiffLines:

* Death clearly seems to return our beloved Merc's affections more than she does Thanos's. Well, think about it: Thanos wants to destroy the universe, meaning no life. Death only exists because there is life. It's symbiotic. Whereas Deadpool just runs around killing people, no large-scale stuff. Still giving more to Death without threatening her existence.
