History: (Deadpool III#36 (fb) - BTS) - Before the man who would become Deadpool was born, his father left his mother leaving her alone to raise the child.

(Deadpool III#45) - In a bar called the Slaughtered Lamb, Deadpool was depressed and his father sat down next to him and told him to quit hogging the nuts. At first Deadpool gave the old man attitude, but the old man got tough with him and Deadpool apologized. Deadpool passed the nuts and left, soon realizing that Loki's curse to make him look like Thom Cruz had left. Remembering that the curse was supposed to be lifted only when he sought his father's forgiveness, 'Pool returned to the Slaughtered Lamb, but the old man was gone.

I don't know for sure that Deadpool's parents were married, but I'm going to list them as relatives for simplicity's sake.

I've seen people confused about it, but Loki was not Deadpool's father. That was part of Loki's scheme for that day, that's all.

In Cable & Deadpool#19 the story of Deadpool's parents was drastically changed..

Wade has gone from being raised by an abusive mother and never knowing who his father was to having lost his mother at an early age and being raised by an abusive father, who he saw get killed.

If we have to force the pieces of these two different histories together Deadpool's abusive fat momma (from Deadpool III) could've been a step-mother he had after his original mother died (and still had after his father died). The easy way would be to say that the man in the bar wasn't really Wade's dad, but just some guy who happened to be there before Loki lost interest or something. Or the man who raised Wade was not his biological father and the man in the bar was?

CLARIFICATIONS:
Deadpool's father should not be confused with:


Deadpool's Mother was left alone to raise her son and she resorted to abusing him. By his teenage years the man who would become Deadpool got sick of that treatment, and so he left home. Years later, after escaping from the Weapon X program and becomming a successful henchman for hire, Deadpool revisited his mother. She responded by smacking him repeatedly, so Deadpool beat her up and left.
