Quote:I know that he used to have something of one in the 90's series, but what exactly happened to them? Black Tom and the Juggernaut were big enemies back in the day during his mini-series. Obviously the Juggernaut was an X-Man for a while, but has Deadpool encountered Black Tom ever since the mini? What about Typhoid Mary? Ajax? Did he have any other real stand out villains? Did Daniel Way, etc, create any real new ones? Thanks for the help.
He did...kinda of. I would say he had a rogues gallery that has sort of disappeared over time.
Deadpool's problem with his rogues is a lot of the ones who really hate him and have a personal history with him like Slayback, Ajax and T-Ray are complete nobodies. Deadpool's popularity has increased but his rogues popularity never did. And he just keeps getting new rogues all the time because everyone wants to use Deadpool.
And Wade's not like Batman. Wade often worked with his rogues in his backstory before he got his own series. Or he had heroic nobody antagonists like Weapon X. Or his antagonists were people he screwed over.
I'd said Deadpool's rogue gallery is eclectic...most people he fights don't pop up as often as say Joker or Penguin do in Batman's life. Slayback for example has only popped up in 2 stories I think.
