The announcement that Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine will appear in Deadpool 3 seemed like the right time to bring up the most important moments of their relationship in Marvel Comics.

Before the 20th Century Fox and Disney merger, fans of Wade Wilson have wanted Wolverine to appear in a Ryan Reynolds Deadpool movie. Not just any Wolverine, though. They wanted Hugh Jackman. And it wasn’t just because he was Logan in the previous X-Men movies. No, fans deserved a redo after the Wolverine: Origins debacle.

It looks like fans will get their wish. Reynolds announced that Deadpool 3 will feature Jackman’s Logan.

The creative team for the Deadpool  films has always been fantastic. They always find clever and entertaining ways to promote the movie. The random videos with Wade breaking the fourth wall are always funny, but they don’t only raise awareness for the movies. They highlight Wade the character. As great as those are, they outdid themselves this time.

The video came out of nowhere and had its desired effect. Hugh Jackman’s return has everyone even more excited for Wade’s Marvel Cinematic Universe debut. Especially since Hugh said he was done. Before we get more news about Deadpool 3, and while the news is fresh, let’s take a look at four most important moments of Wade and Logan’s time in Marvel Comics.

Deadpool fights Logan

Marvel comic: Deadpool No. 27

Writer: Joe Kelly

Logan and Wade have fought a bunch of times. This one just happens to be sillier than the others. Dr. Bong told Wade to confront his hallucinations by killing a hero. Wade chose Logan. Wolverine denied Wade’s request to “snikt” him until Deadpool hit Kitty Pryde with an uppercut right out of Ryu’s move list. That was more than enough to get Wolverine to pop his claws.

Logan ends up winning the fight by impaling Wade on his claws. This inadvertently helped Deadpool with his hallucinations. This wasn’t the last time they fought. However, the next one on the list could be the most personal for Wade.

Deadpool fights Logan (again)

Marvel comic: Wolverine Origins: The Deep End

Writer: Daniel Way

Wade has always been jealous of Logan. Everyone looks at Logan as deadly, yet he still gets to be an X-Man. Meanwhile, everyone hates Wade even though he’s just as good. So when Deadpool was paid to take Wolverine out, he took the job. He saw it as an opportunity to show his skills. Wade even told Logan he would have done it for a handful of coupons.

Wade’s scheme was working to perfection. He even set up for Logan to have a piano dropped on him. Too bad this was all Logan’s plan. He got Bucky Barnes to pose as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and hire Deadpool. This was Logan’s plan to get his son (Daken).

This wouldn’t be the last time they fought, but they haven’t been so brutal to each other since. Well, Wade hasn’t. Logan still viciously attacks Wade.

A new X-Force

Marvel comic: Uncanny X-Force

Writer: Rick Remender

After X-Men: Messiah Complex, Cyclops put an X-Force team together. The idea was for them to kill threats to mutants before they could attack the remaining mutants. After X-Men: Second Coming, Cyclops disbanded the team. He said it was a new day for mutants and X-Force can’t be part of it. Wolverine didn’t agree. He knew that mutants needed a clandestine team to protect them so he created his own X-Force.

Logan recruited Psylocke, Archangel, Fantomex, and Deadpool (other members came later). The latter was shocking at the time. This was when Logan couldn’t trust Wade. He still looked at Wade as a mercenary that would do anything for money. In the end, Logan learned that the Deadpool he knew was gone. He didn’t do things just for money. In fact, Wade never cashed the checks that Warren Worthington (Archangel) wrote him.

Wade Wilson cries

Marvel comic: Deadpool: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Writer: Gerry Duggan, Brian Posehn

Wade, Steve Rogers, and Logan were all captured and brought to North Korea. While there, the trio managed to break out and save innocent people. Some of them were experimented on and given powers like the X-Men. Unfortunately, not everyone survived. Among the fallen innocents was the mother of Deadpool’s daughter.

Wade blamed himself for everything that happened. He felt that if he never met her, she wouldn’t have been captured. Thankfully, Logan and Cap helped Deadpool through this time the best they could. At the end of the series, the two Avengers left with a different perspective on Wade. It’s the reason they respect him as a hero and as a man.
