8. THE MERC WITH A CONSCIENCE
Deadpool is an anti-hero to the core, but in his heart he’s a good guy (most of the time). While he has killed hundreds of people and constantly torments those closest to him, Deadpool has shown great compassion in brief, intimate moments. He has even been seen donating his organs and sacrificing his body for others.
One of Deadpool’s most memorable moments comes when he rescues Evan (a clone of the villain Apocalypse) from his creators and informs him that he is more than just a clone destined for evil – that he has a choice to be his own man. Later, after Evan enrolled at the Jean Grey School For Higher Learning, Deadpool payed his new favorite pal a visit. In one of the most heartwarming set of panels in all of Deadpool’s comics, Wade tells Evan that if he could have a son he’d want one just as awesome as Evan. In this moment, Evan thanks Deadpool for being the “hero” who helped him when he needed it the most.
