Deadpool movies have skipped the weirdest part of their origins

 Marvel's most famous mercenary has two hit movies, but the Deadpool movies missed his most important origin story: the stage of a sumo wrestler.

Deadpool movies have skipped the weirdest part of their origins

The mercenary Deadpool is one of the most popular Marvel characters for a variety of reasons; While the Deadpool and Deadpool 2 movies have benefited from this, they have (perhaps deliberately) omitted the strangest part of the heroes' origin story. Created in 1991, Wade Wilson is the rare superhero who survived the Dark Age of Comics (the '90s) relatively unscathed and remained popular - albeit after undergoing drastic character changes. Deadpool and Widdle Wade Team-Up #1 marks an important moment in Wilson's origin - one that the protagonist's cinematic debut hasn't capitalized on.

Deadpool first appeared in The New Mutants #98 in 1991. The movie, by popular comic book artist and writer Rob Liefeld, was somewhat conservative in its first few releases, which will undoubtedly come as a surprise to many fans of the character's current ones. . His initial popularity may have been due to a simple costume and mask (the '90s was an era when nearly all new characters were saddled with bags of ammo, tactical gear, and long, flowing items like hair, bandanas, caps, and big shoulder pads) that allowed him to stand out from the crowd. But his sense of humor and mediocre awareness, although not appearing until the late 1990s and early 2000s, boosted the character's popularity for a new decade.

In Deadpool and Widdle Wade Team-Up #1, a Merc with a Mouth is thrown into a flashback sequence (with a matching lampshade) where Wade Wilson recalls his past - of all things - a sumo wrestler. He is tasked with infiltrating the entire complex, and as such undergoes sumo training (which involves very little besides learning techniques of fighting and eating), and learning from Oyakata himself (his master). He rose in ranks, eventually became the heir to the entire complex - and fell in love with Sai. Unfortunately, he receives sad orders: he must assassinate his master Oyakata.

For the first time in his life, Deadpool can't go on with this. He abandons his mission, expels his lover, and runs away. This shows a very human side of Deadpool that the two movies released just didn't quite capture. The character is often disrespectful and at times illogical, but he still has human qualities and may even regret his past as a killer.

Deadpool has a very long history, but he rarely mentions those he admires. Oyakata was one of them (he even attributes his survival and success to his extensive training at the Sumo Complex) and once the association grew, Deadpool had no intention of moving forward with his contract. Deadpool is known for his sense of humor, but ardent fans of the character know that the character is a far cry from the heartless killer portrayed in most stories.
