1. The Dead Pool (X-Men Origins: Wolverine)

When Wade Wilson was on screen in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, he was amazing. He was the wise-cracking, sarcastic, and sadistic person we’ve seen in the Deadpool comic books. It seemed like things were going smooth. That was until someone decided to take Wade Wilson’s mouth away (even though he’s called the Merc with a Mouth) and give him blade arms, optic blasts, and teleporting powers.

This wasn’t Deadpool. This was a bastardization of Wade Wilson. Or, as the internet loves to call him, Baraka-Pool.

As a comic book fan, there are a lot of things that I have to get over. Some stories, powers, and personalities just don’t work in movies and TV shows. Wolverine won’t be five feet three inches tall and maybe there isn’t enough time to make Nightcrawler more jovial in X2: X-Men United.

What Fox did to Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine is baffling. I have yet to meet a person who understood or enjoyed what they did to Deadpool. It was so bad that (SPOILER) people applauded when Deadpool went and killed him at the end of Deadpool 2. Easily the worst rendition of a character and I’ve seen Fantastic Four in 2015.
