• Hyper-regenerative cellular structure genetically extrapolated from Wolverine's healing factor, giving him heightened strength, agility, endurance, reflexes and unprecedented healing abilities that repair injuries, reproduce lost tissue and fluids, can reattach severed limbs or grow new ones, and generally survive catastrophic physical damage such as decapitation, impalement, or being flash-frozen and shattered
• Previously cursed with immortality by Thanos, depriving him the touch of Death, meaning Deadpool's soul would remain connected to his body past the point of death while his healing factor eventually restored his body until it revived
• Regularly employs a variety of swords, blades, firearms, grenades, and other pouch-compatible paraphernalia; occasionally uses a personal teleportation unit and image inducer, creating holographic skins that disguise his true appearance based on recorded 3-D body maps
