An idea that is quite interesting to think about is Deadpool vs Wolverine because they are both similar in one major way. Both of them have healing abilities, making them virtually invulnerable to all sorts of attacks. Deadpool is an unstoppable assassin for hire (like Deathstroke) and Wolverine has lived through many wars, so both are experienced killers. But who would win in a fight?
There are a couple comics we can turn to, however neither one of them are particularly definitive in seeing who would win in a fair fight. In the comic Major X issue 0 we get to witness Deadpool as he is hired to capture Wolverine, so his healing abilities could be exploited. (This is not a particularly original premise, as Wolverine has been sought after with this purpose in the past.) The fight doesn’t last very long, as they punch, kick and elbow each other a few times before Deadpool shoots some tranquilizer darts with enough sedative to take down a T-Rex. This brings Wolverine to the ground, with his body heavy like lead and his chest on fire. So this whole Deadpool vs Wolverine scenario ends rather quickly and Deadpool wins the battle.
After Wolverine gains consciousness, it turns out that he was captured by a group that calls themselves The Watchtower, and wants his healing abilities to heal the world. We also discover that someone named Siryn was getting herself healed in a chemical bath of mutant growth hormones. Deadpool and Wolverine enter another scuffle, with Deadpool getting most of the hits in before directing his attention elsewhere.
Beside this event in Major X issue 0, in Wolverine Annual 99 (Affiliate Link) there was an earlier encounter where Wolverine attacks Deadpool after smelling his scent and seeing him attempting to break into someone’s home. Wolverine hits him in the face with a pipe, and they come crashing down through a rooftop. Deadpool throws his sword through Wolverine’s shoulder and pins him to the wall. The fight ends when a werewolf picks up Deadpool and tosses him. The story ends with Wolverine declaring no hard feelings and suggests that Deadpool buys him a beer.
Now that we’ve explored the serious side of Deadpool vs Wolverine, let’s delve into the more lighthearted aspects of this epic matchup. To start, we can imagine Deadpool making quips about Wolverine’s hair, asking him if he learned how to do his hair from a wolverine. Or maybe Wolverine would tease Deadpool about his spandex suit, asking him if he’s trying to be a superhero or just a really flexible dancer. Regardless of who would win in a fight, one thing we can be sure of is that the banter between these two would be entertaining to watch.
When it comes to Deadpool vs Wolverine, the debate will likely never be fully settled. Both characters have their fans and their detractors, and both have their strengths and weaknesses. One thing is for certain, however: the two characters have a lot in common, and it’s easy to see why a battle between them would be so intriguing. Whether you prefer the serious tone of their encounters in the comics or the more lighthearted banter between them, there’s no denying that Deadpool vs Wolverine is a matchup that will continue to capture the imaginations of fans for years to come.
It’s hard to deny that Deadpool can beat Wolverine, as in both stories he manages to get himself into a better position. What are your thoughts about Deadpool vs Wolverine? Leave a comment.
