Day 15, No. 15. This guy

DeadpoolHAIRCUT 100: Day 15, No. 15. Deadpool, the ‘Merc with a mouth,’ as played by Ryan Reynolds: mutant, mercenary, cancer survivor and lovable psychopath. Wade Winston Wilson, AKA ‘Deadpool,’ is a comic book antihero in the tradition of classic genre subversives such as Lobo and Marshal Law, created by Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza and published by Marvel. Like Wolverine – who he teases something rotten – his primary power is accelerated healing, to the extent that he has survived decapitation more than once. Described by series writer Gerry Duggan as ‘pansexual,’ Deadpool is one kinky superhero, the character perfectly suited to Reynolds’ wisecracking onscreen persona, first seen all those years ago in his portrayal of Hannibal King in Blade Trinity or, if you prefer, Sabrina: The Teenage Witch. (But maybe not Green Lantern.) A superhero and a superhero movie for people who are bored with superheroes and superhero movies. ‘Are you there God? It’s me, Margaret!’
