Uncover Deadpool's complicated history with Weapon X!

When his healing factor fails, Wade Wilson grudgingly turns to Dr. Killebrew, the mad scientist who cured his cancer—and ruined his life!

But what exactly was done to Deadpool in the Workshop? And can Wade control his impulse to slice Killebrew into little pieces?

Then, Ajax wants Deadpool's stain scrubbed from the planet. What is his connection to Wade's nightmarish origin—and how is Death herself involved?

Plus: The resurrected Weapon X program makes Wade an offer he can't refuse: If he joins their cutthroat crew, they'll fix his ravaged face!

And when Deadpool is haunted by the ghosts of his past, can fellow Weapon Plus alumni Wolverine and Captain America help him through his most harrowing battle ever?

Collects: DEADPOOL (1997) #3-5, #17-19 and #57-61; DEADPOOL/DEATH ANNUAL '98; and DEADPOOL (2012) #15-19.
Joe Kelly broke into Marvel in 1997, adding his own style of irreverence to Deadpool and turning the title into a cult sensation. After runs on Daredevil and X-Men, Kelly departed for DC Comics, where he delivered award-winning work on Action Comics and Superboy. He subsequently returned to Marvel, collaborating with the “Spider-Man Brain Trust” and penning several memorable arcs on Amazing Spider-Man. Kelly combined the two Marvel characters with which he is most closely associated in the riotous team-up series Spider-Man/Deadpool. Along with several fellow comic creators, Kelly established Man of Action, the studio that has produced the Ben 10 animated series.

Frank Tieri entered the early part of the new century as writer on diverse titles such as Wolverine, Iron Man and Weapon X. His Hercules limited series cast the Avenger as a reality-TV star reliving his twelve trials, continuing the lighthearted legacy of Olympus’ favorite son. Tieri’s Underworld and Civil War: War Crimes explored the effects of the heroes’ registration fight on Marvel’s criminal element. World War Hulk: Gamma Corps followed the next generation of gamma-irradiated superhumans as they sought to kill the Hulk. And Dark Reign: Lethal Legion charted the crash-and-burn exploits of an ad hoc team of bad guys as they vainly sought to topple Norman Osborn from power. Tieri, whose Marvel credits also includes New Excalibur, explored Weirdworld in the pages of Black Knight.

Brian Posehn was born a long time ago and fell in love with comic books at a very young age. He decided to wait to write them until he was in his forties. Before embarking on a career in comic-book writing, he floated through a series of odd jobs — including standup comedy, TV writing and film and sitcom acting. Since arriving at Marvel, he feels he’s found his true calling, but will continue to do “the other crap for fun.”  Posehn’s collaborations with Gerry Duggan include "The Last Christmas," a Jaws parody for The Simpsons’ Treehouse of Horror comics, some screenplays and TV ideas you’ll never see, and a baby they’re raising together in the basement of a local abandoned sanitarium.

Gerry Duggan has become one of Marvel’s most influential writers, having first made an impression at the House of Ideas with a lengthy and always surprising Deadpool run alongside his frequent writing partner, Brian Posehn. Among Duggan’s solo credits are Nova, Hulk and multiple tie-ins to the Secret Wars event. He added Deadpool to the revamped roster of Uncanny Avengers and brought his unique blend of action and humor to All-New Guardians of the Galaxy, leading up to the cosmic event series Infinity Wars. Marauders and Cable established him as a vital part of the storytelling team for the Dawn of X era, a role he has cemented further by launching the blockbuster new X-Men title. Duggan’s earlier collaboration with artist Phil Noto — The Infinite Horizon, a reimagining of Homer’s The Odyssey in a dystopian future — earned an Eisner Award nomination for Best New Series.

Artist Ed McGuinness came to prominence with his work on Harris Comics’ Vampirella and Marvel’s Deadpool. At Awesome Entertainment, McGuinness participated in a Fighting American revamp with writer Jeph Loeb, who would become a longtime collaborator. A short run on WildStorm’s Mr. Majestic led to a longer one on DC Comics’ Superman and the launch of Superman/Batman with Loeb. Back at Marvel, McGuinness reunited with Loeb for Fallen Son: The Death of Captain America, Hulk and Avengers: X-Sanction before launching Amazing X-Men with Jason Aaron. McGuinness has reteamed with his Deadpool scribe Joe Kelly for Spider-Man/Deadpool and with Aaron on a blockbuster relaunch of Avengers.

Walter McDaniel’s Marvel output includes annuals for Gambit, Ka-Zar and Wolverine, along with stints on Deadpool and Deathlok. Elsewhere, he has drawn Earth 4 for Continuity Comics, as well as Crush and Pact for Image. 

Georges Jeanty helped build the popularity of mutants Bishop and Gambit on their respective solo series in the 1990s, and went on to further acclaim with The American Way for DC Comics’ Wildstorm imprint. Jeanty demonstrated his flair for likeness work as the artist for the comic-book continuation of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Joss Whedon’s beloved TV series.
