Although Dogpool may be the most precious character ever introduced to the MCU, the pages of Marvel Comics may reveal trouble on the horizon for the canine variant.
Introduced in “Prelude to Deadpool Corps” #3, a dog named Wilson was an animal test subject for makeup company Mascara X, whose experiment gave him regenerative powers but left him disfigured. Eventually, the Deadpool from Earth-616, the main Marvel Comics universe, recruits the mutant doggo for his multiversal team: the Deadpool Corps. Dogpool serves the Corps well, even traveling to another reality featuring zombie mime versions of the Avengers and Deadpool. However, when an evil version of the Deadpool Corps arrives on Earth-616 to kill Deadpool, Dogpool sacrifices himself to defend his friend.
While Dogpool’s comic-book fate was cut far too short, Marvel Studios has the opportunity to alter the character’s destiny. Although it’s a minor change, they already diverted from the source material by gender-bending Dogpool for “Deadpool 3.” Plus, they’re far from a well-established character in Marvel Comics, meaning the studio practically has free reign to give Dogpool new life on the big screen. With rumors suggesting weirder, light-saber-wielding Deadpool variants are on the way, Dogpool could even end up being one of the most normal Deadpools we see in “Deadpool 3.”
