    I think he's got a cult following, simply by looking at his past uses in comics. He's had numerous ongoings and miniseries, which few people buy, and when his title gets cancelled, it seems there are more people voicing thier dismay on the cancellation than actual people who were buying the title to begin with.Funny thing is I think Marvel's making a mistake on using the Wolverine Origins creative team to launch a new Deadpool ongoing; no disrespect to the creative team involved, I just don't get that "they're a good fit" feeling from them.I say let a Deadpool series simmer for a long while, and throw the character on X-Factor and let Peter David have his way with him until another ongoing is warranted. Just my two cents.
