Vanessa Carlysle, also known as Copycat, is Deadpool’son-and-off girlfriend.
We recently wrote about the hilarious PSAs which featured Deadpool promoting testicular and breast cancer awareness by asking men and women to “touch themselves”.
In preparation for the film’s release, Business Insider looks at the characters that are going to be in the Deadpool movie and what we know about them from the comic books.
We know that Wade Wilson is a mercenary diagnosed with terminal cancer who saves himself by becoming a part of “Weapon-X”, the same mysterious program that gave Wolverine his powers. As hinted at in the trailer, his skin gets horribly disfigured, making the Weapon-X scientists assume that the treatments failed. They did not realize that despite his disfigured face, Wilson developed rapid healing, making him unkillable. He is also the only Marvel comic book character that breaks the fourth wall and frequently addresses the reader specifically.
The article goes on to talk about the origins of Vanessa Carlysle, Wilson’s girlfriend, who is also known as Copycat, Ajax, one of Deadpool’s rivals and other characters from X-Men.
Head over here to read more. The movie appears in theaters on 12 February 2016.
