30 of Deadpool’s best and ridiculous comic book moments to celebrate the Merc with a Mouth’s 30 year anniversary.

Looking back at Deadpool’s life, it’s funny to see how far he’s come.

Some comic book characters take decades to get off the ground – let alone get their own film franchise – but Deadpool has been a beloved fixture of Marvel Comics for a long time.

With the exception of the number one spot, there is no particular order to the list because all 30 of these moments are excellent.
