Wade Wilson suffering through a severe cancer when he assigned for the Weapon X Program. He was given an artificial healing factor that was similar to Wolverine's in an experiment. The experiment backfired and kicked his cancer into overdrive, leaving him eternally disfigured. He was tossed into a prison lab because he was dubbed as a failed experiment. The warden was chosen a subject to kill by a game known as the “dead pool”. Somehow, he survived his execution and overcame the odds. Unable to live a normal life, he decided to become a mecernary-for-hire.
