Known for his insouciant, talkative manner, the smart-alecky "Merc with a Mouth" is the inspiration for Deadpool action figures and gobs of other fan-demanded items.
Originally a supervillain, the trained assassin and mercenary evolved over time into the current more well-known antihero. In addition to comic books, he's been seen in animated and live-action films, television, and web series, and in video games. Therefore, there are many a Deadpool statue, plush, and other collectible article for his many fans to covet.
Deadpool's fame and popularity have soared with Ryan Reynolds' portrayals in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), Deadpool (2016), and the short film Deadpool: No Good Deed shown before screenings of Logan and perhaps serving as a teaser for Deadpool 2.
