Yes, he does.
We’ve all heard the rumors about Deadpool taking steroids, but there’s actually some evidence that points to him taking them. Sure, if you search around for this answer on the internet, it’ll become pretty clear that there are just as many people who say no as those who say yes, but I’m here to enlighten you with the truth behind these rumors. I assure you they’re most definitely true.
Below is a list of reasons why Deadpool takes steroids, along with my own opinions and analysis of each point.
Why? Because he can! Also because he needs them in order to survive his cancer and other injuries, which would otherwise kill a normal human being many times over. You may have seen Deadpool rated as “Flatlined!” by Colossus, but if you thought he really was dead, you were wrong. He was simply in a coma-like state after his heart kept stopping. Deadpool flatlines regularly because of all cancer and other injuries he’s suffered over the years that have left him clinically dead many times. This is also why Deadpool can recover from any injury leaving no scars once he recovers back to full health again. I know this sounds crazy, but it makes perfect sense when you read about his abilities below!
Similarities between Wolverine and Deadpool:
*They are both mutants with accelerated healing abilities allowing them to recover from any damage – even death itself!
*Wolverine’s claws are coated with Adamantium which is what grants his lethal slashing power. Deadpool’s entire body is coated with the virtually indestructible metal, Adamantium! The only difference is that Wolverine was born with bone claws which were then bonded at the molecular level to the indestructible metal Adamantium; whereas we all know Wade Wilson had mutant healing powers and a twisted sense of humor, which enabled him to survive the torturous experiment that bonded his bones and flesh together with this rare but naturally occurring element.
*Both Wolverines and Deadpools are virtually immortal beings (although technically speaking, they’re both already dead-dead, if you know what I mean). They can’t die from natural causes such as disease or old age like regular humans. It has also been said that nothing short of decapitation (and sometimes even that’s not enough) can end their lives.
*Both Wolverine and Deadpool are known for their snarky sense of humor and tendency to break the fourth wall whenever they speak, which makes them the funniest comic book characters of all time! And if you don’t agree. Well, your opinion sucks (see what I did there?).
Some people like to make fun of me when I say this, but just because they’re both mutants with a twisted sense of humor doesn’t mean one is a clone or copycat of the other. It just means that their circumstances were similar, which suffice to say, they most certainly were! Being practically immortal beings who cannot die from natural causes, having a metal alloy bonded to their bones and flesh, and having accelerated healing abilities which enable them to recover even from death itself, Wolverine was the “prototype” for Deadpool; not the other way around!
*Both Wade Wilson (Deadpool) and Logan (Wolverine) are considered the best at what they do. While Deadpool is known as “The Merc with a Mouth,” Wolverine is known as “The Best There Is!” – at what, I’m not sure, but he’s definitely up there on that list of bests. I mean, seriously, has anyone seen any of his movies? They’re all terrible! Even Hugh Jackman thinks so. or maybe not since he’s coming back for another one.
How does Deadpool take steroids?
*Deadpool takes steroids in order to survive his cancer and the many other injuries he’s suffered over time that would otherwise kill a normal human being!
*Rather than giving Deadpool cancer, the Weapon X scientists increased his mutant healing factor so that it could cure him of any diseases or injuries, including on-the-job cellular damage as a result of being practically immortal.
Did they really have anything to do with Wade Wilson getting cancer? I’m not sure. But either way, Deadpool eventually came out of that coma after flatlining that one time and managed to heal himself from the brink of death due to his accelerated mutant healing factor. As you can tell from Colossus’ remark about him being “Flatlined,” this is something that rarely happens with him.
*Deadpool takes steroids, AKA “the good stuff,” to push the limits of his mutant healing factor beyond what was originally possible for him – thereby enhancing his physical capabilities beyond what they were before! His accelerated healing abilities are something he inherited from Wolverine since they both are virtually immortal beings who cannot die from natural causes.
We are staying ahead of cancer. As stated earlier, Deadpool’s advanced healing factor is what enables him to survive not only diseases and injuries that would otherwise kill a normal human being; but also on-the-job cellular damage as a result of being practically immortal. This is because every time Deadpool gets injured or wounded in some way, his accelerated healing powers kick into high gear and regenerate damaged tissues, organs, and bones in a matter of moments!
How does Wade Wilson take steroids? (WARNING: NSFW) Keep in mind that this is what Deadpool himself would say. He talks like T-Pain and is also known for his potty mouth, so if you can’t handle vulgar language, please turn your head – but don’t shut the screen off yet! There’s more to come.
Since all of my skeletons possess regenerative powers, too, based on Wolverine’s accelerated healing factor, I’m willing to bet that most of them do something like this at one point or another. Even with having superpowers, they’d still need some form of anabolic steroid in order to avoid breaking bones during heavy lifting sessions, especially while bodybuilding.
Not that you’ll be seeing me back in the gym any time soon, but since a lot of my skeletons are bodybuilders and powerlifters, I thought it would be interesting to write about what they do.
*Deadpool takes steroids in order to maintain peak physical condition, which enables him to use his mutant abilities at their maximum capacity!
How do you take steroids?
*Injecting? Pills? Creams/gels? Transdermal patches? The truth is, there are many different ways one can take anabolic-androgenic steroids, but which method works best for taking steroid pills vs. injection remains debatable among the many users who have a preference as well as those who have no preference.
*Well, since I haven’t yet found any studies on the topic of whether or not one’s preference in taking steroid pills vs. injection has an effect on how quickly steroids work for them when it comes to building muscle, I’m going to have to guess that it does. Maybe? Probably? Hopefully…? Let’s test my theory.
Test hypothesis: The more often you inject yourself with anabolic-androgenic steroids, the faster they’ll work for you when it comes to building mass.
*His enhanced physical capabilities give Deadpool super strength and endurance, which allows him to do things like this…
…as well as take punches from Colossus without falling down!
More than just bodybuilders take steroids? While people who don’t work out or who are trying to lose weight tend to take oral steroid pills for the express purpose of gaining muscle mass, there are plenty of others who have different needs/reasons. An example would be certain competitive athletes who use anabolic-androgenic steroids in order to enhance their athletic abilities!
Non-athletes may also take steroids as well – but for other reasons. The primary reason is that by taking steroids, instead of falling asleep at night, you can stay up hours longer without feeling tired. But wait. what kind of “steroids” are we talking about here? Well. It’s not your typical muscle-enhancing anabolic steroid. Instead, this one is classified as a psychostimulant.
*Since I can’t get enough of Deadpool, allow me to turn this article back over to him for a bit so that he can explain further!
*Psychostimulants are substances that act on the central nervous system (CNS) to temporarily increase alertness, attention, and energy, with effects typically lasting from 3–10 hours. As well as substantially increasing mental focus and alertness, psychostimulants also induce feelings of euphoria – hence their “high” feeling when taken at higher than medically recommended doses. *While stronger psychostimulants like methamphetamine may be produced illicitly in large quantities by amateur chemists due to its ease of manufacture, other psychostimulants like dextroamphetamine (Dexedrine) and methylphenidate (Ritalin) usually require a doctor’s prescription.
*Despite the fact that while taking anabolic steroids to increase your muscle mass may be considered cheating in some sports, using certain stimulants while playing sports isn’t! Unfortunately, though, it’s only allowed during athletic events but not training sessions – so if you want to take an amphetamine or similar product to help get “pumped” for a bodybuilding show… tough luck!
Since there are so many different ways anabolic-androgenic steroids can be taken by users/athletes, I think I’m going to have to save that topic for another article!
*Unless, of course, you’re one of those users/athletes who sucks at keeping secrets, then I’d say go for it. But I’m warning you – don’t let the cat out of the bag too soon before it’s time 😉
