About This Quiz

Heroes are relatable, by design. For an audience to feel the pain of a hero, they are created to be sympathetic, funny, or cool in a way that makes us think we are like them or want to be like them. Deadpool somehow manages to be compassionate, funny, and cool all at the same time. 

Wade Wilson is like Spider-Man, only with guns. His costume looks like Spidey, loaded up with guns and knives. He makes jokes in the face of death, to an audience he has explicitly said he will kill. At the same time, Deadpool has endured terrible suffering, being "cured of cancer" by means of a cruel experiment that makes him look like a monster, and confines him to his deliberately ridiculous costume.

So how much have you suffered? How good are you at your job? Do you have a lot of frenemies but few real friends? Are you funny at the expense of being rude? Are you visibly scarred by your tragic past? Are you essential in a struggle that seems local but may actually involve the fate of the world?
