Does Deadpool still count even though he was butchered in a movie? He’s always been one of my favorite B-list characters. Yeah, I like him because he’s such a silly character, but everyone knows he hides behind that persona. Deadpool before he became Deadpool was a very different person and sometimes we catch glimpses of who he used to be when he was still just Wade Wilson.

In that regard you could say that I like him for some of the same reasons I like Storm because he’s a character who is more complex (in my opinion) than people give him credit for and has many more facets to him than just the "merc with a mouth." Even sometimes in his silliness, a seriousness follows it, especially when he reveals his face to someone (usually a woman). His jokes are more biting and self-loathing in those instances. The fight where Juggernaut rips off what he refers to as "his face" (his mask) he has one of those moments with Siryn (Theresa Cassidy) in Sins of the Past where she shows kindness to him after being initially repulsed by his face.
And though he usually shows that his actions are self-serving and all about what he can get out of the deal. There are moments when he can be selfless with no real gain such as when he went on to help Siryn’s uncle Black Tom and when he saved Copycat by allowing her to “copy” him (his healing ability saved her).
There's is definitely a lot more going on there than a mouthy merc.
