Deadpool: Anti-Hero/Anti-Bully

So, I love Deadpool.

A LOT of people love Deadpool for a MULTITUDE of reasons. But the reason I love Deadpool, the reason I think despite his antihero status he represents this sticker just as well as any Avenger, is that at the heart of him is a guy that wants to see the good guys win. A guy with incredibly low self esteem and a lot of hidden vulnerability due to his abusive childhood and living with a disfiguring illness whose favorite hero is Spiderman. Who fanboys out at the chance to team up with the X-Men. Whose one true love is Bea friggin' Arthur.
He's got layers, and ones I think readers of all ages and especially bullied kids can identify with.

Also he breaks the fourth wall and that's, like, hella cool.
