In Deadpool, Wade Wilson is subjected to an experiment that leaves him with new abilities, and he must hunt down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Wade Wilson is a former special forces operative who works as a mercenary in New York City. He meets escort Vanessa Carlysle at a local bar and they become romantically attached for nearly a year. He proposes to her one night, and she accepts, but then he suddenly collapses. Wade is diagnosed with terminal cancer and though Vanessa remains by his side, he fears losing her.
One night, at the bar that he met Vanessa, he is approached by a recruiter from a secret program. He is offered an experimental cure for his cancer, but he rebuffs the man and leaves. Desperate to live, he reconsiders and leaves Vanessa in the middle of the night to undergo the procedure. He is injected with a special serum by Francis Freeman and tortured for days by Angel Dust in order to trigger a mutation. After weeks of no success, Wade is strapped into an airtight chamber after insulting Francis. The drop in oxygen triggers a healing factor that severely disfigures his face and skin, but effectively renders him immortal in the process. He escapes from the chamber by blowing it up and attempts to kill Francis, only stopping when Francis says he can cure Wade’s disfigurement. Wade is then impaled by rebar and left for dead in the destruction of the lab.
