PERSONNEL BRIEF, Directorate of Operations: Deadpool
Designation: Freelance Operative
Criminal Record: Extensive, but frequently purged as payment for jobs with various governments
Powers: Deadpool has a "healing factor" derived from the mutant Wolverine while he was a part of the top-secret Weapon X program. In addition from quickly healing from most wounds, Wilson is also immune to all poisons, toxins, and diseases.
Abilities: As one of the world's most accomplished and feared assassins, Wade Wilson is a master of a variety hand-to-hand and weapon techniques.
Unique Weapon(s): Though Deadpool has been known to use every means of destruction even conceived by the mind of man (and invented one or two of his own), his signature weapons are his samurai swords and twin pistols.
Known History: Wilson volunteered for the Weapon X program as a potential cure for the terminal cancer ravaging body. While the artificial introduction of Wolverine's healing factor saved his life, it also preserved his cancer: The malignant cells are in a constant war for control of the rest of the body, with never side ever able to be defeated. This constant struggle has driven Deadpool insane.
The clinical diagnosis of Deadpool's condition is "dissoviative identity disorder." The way Deadpool describes it, he has three internal monologues going inside his brain at all times: His own, one that constantly contradicts him, and a third he simply calls "The Writer."
On the other hand, Deadpool does lie a lot.
Observations: "Yes, I know Deadpool has never failed any assignment we've given him. Yes, I know he has completed missions rated 'Impossible' and 'Super Double-Dog Impossible' with laughable ease.
But our S.H.I.E.L.D. Psych Profiles suggest his mental state is rapidly degenerating. While his psychosis typically manifest itself in him thinking he's a character in monthly-published comic book series, now it's evolved into him thinking he's a character in a video game -- one on Facebook, no less. Our shrinks say they've never seen such a bizarrely specific series of delusions before. He keeps asking us to "friend him" and "gift him Shawarma ," whatever the hell that means. For that reason, I think the agency should carefully consider any attempts to hire Deadpool in the future. He may have simply become too unpredictable for S.H.I.E.L.D. to safely employ." -- Maria Hill
