Warning! This post contains SPOILERS for Deadpool #3In the latest issue of Marvel Comics’ Deadpoolis it revealed that Wade Wilson has a child…with Carnage symbiote. In one of Deadpool’s strangest storylines of all time, the evil geneticist known as the Harrower kidnapped and used Wade Wilson as the perfect host and incubator for his own hybrid of Carnage, the Merc with the Mouth’s ability to regenerate organs, making him a prime replenishable food source for this young parasite. However, it seems that Deadpool and this new version of Carnage have strangely begun to bond in this new issue.
As seen in the new Deadpool #3 from Alyssa Wong and Martin Coccolo, Wade’s new crush Valentine Vuong has taken Deadpool and his new offspring to the zoo for a field test, hoping to see if they can coexist without killing each other. While Deadpool began calling his own personal symbiote “Carnage Jr.” he has also given it the name “Renesmee” as a joke Twilight referring to Bella Swan’s daughter whose vampire pregnancy threatened to kill her. Similarly, little Ren has already started talking, calling Deadpool “Papa” (while trying to get Wade and Valentine to kiss).
Will Deadpool’s Symbiote become a permanent addition?
With Renesmee living inside Wade, it can become another set of weapons when needed, making it hard to deny that the symbiote hasn’t given Deadpool an impressive (still pretty gross) power upgrade. Likewise, Deadpool naming his symbiote is a good sign that he’s starting to bond with the little guy who currently calls his organs home. That said, Harrower clearly wants his creation back and has even gone as far as teaming up with Doctor Octopus by the end of this new issue.
It should also be noted that Valentine was never supposed to help Deadpool recover, as they are a member of the prestigious group of mercenaries known as the Atelier, who offered an audition to Wade, which he failed. Now it looks like both Wade and Valentine will soon be in the Atelier’s crosshairs. However, it looks like Deadpool has to protect Renesmee from Harrower before they can worry about that.
While stranger things have happened in comics, Deadpool has a symbiote Carnage child ranks quite high on the list. Since the two have already begun to see themselves as family, Renesmee may well become a permanent addition Deadpools life going forward. Deadpool #4 is on sale now from Marvel Comics.
