Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3/Deadpool
Deadpool, known as the "Merc with a Mouth", was given the ability to heal any wound through the notorious Weapon X program. The process also left his brain in shambles, making Deadpool a psychotic, unpredictable foe. Most of his past is unknown and even his real name, Wade Wilson, is in question. Deadpool spent the following years as a hired assassin but following the death of his longtime associate, Cable, Deadpool joined X-Force, a newly formed team of black ops.
In a nutshell Deadpool is a run and gun style character with some excellent normals to use should he find himself in-close to his opponents. His guns are fast and cover the screen for a while, the air version can fire at three angles, and his Ninja Gift m make moving in on the ground difficult. His lightning fast, low to the ground dash can help him change sides when opponents super jump over his field of death. Once in a while, his teleporter can get him out of a jam as well, especially since you can cancel special moves into it. If you like pelting your opponents with guns and grenades, but want to be able to defend yourself when things aren't working out, Deadpool might be the mercenary for you.

Tips and Tricks
- Deadpool can easily hit-confirm his mid or low Trigger Happy into his Happy Happy Trigger super for moderate damage. Tack on X-Factor mode or a DHC to really hurt opponents for small, long range mistakes.
- Deadpool only gets to fire his guns once per jump. This means you need to make it count. Deadpool's trajectory remains when firing in the air, so jumping backward and firing the Guns can cover the whole screen with bullets.
- Deadpool's standing Light attack is surprising good anti-air, and combos easily into his launcher.
- Deadpool's Flip Kick overhead combos easily into his Launcher or Heavy Katana-Rama for huge damage.
Deadpool works best by zoning the opponent when possible and punishing them for reckless advances. Pelt the enemy with annoying gunfire and Ninja Gifts until they are forced to take the fight to you, then welcome them to die!
His move set is not tailored to a rush-down style of play, but it is effective at close range due to his 6M overhead attack, and doing damaging combos isn't hard thanks to Katana-Rama! H OTG into Chimichangas!!.
