Let’s start with the easy one. Based on the most recent trailer, it looks like the movie world will soon see Deadpool as the leader and recruiter of X-Force — bringing the team together so that they can help him keep a young mutant (played by Julian Dennison) safe from Cable (Josh Brolin). Of course, the Merc With The Mouth isn’t much of a leader, which should create a few problems, but he certainly is very skilled at what he does thanks to his incredible healing factor.
In the comics, Deadpool has been closely associated with X-Force from the very beginning, his second appearance ever being in X-Force #2, but it should be noted that he didn’t actually start off as a member of the group. Instead, he was originally introduced as antagonist for the squad, which was formed under the leadership of Cable (making the juxtaposition in a bit funny). That said, he not only eventually wound up joining the early version of the team, but has also been a part of multiple iterations since — one of the most notable being Rick Remender’s Uncanny X-Force.
