Guess what? I have been drawn into the argument despite having tons of school. Thanks a lot people. Or myself... Whoever's to blame for getting me into this.
Alright, to make the clearest point possible, I will make my stance clear:
Deadpool is not a good show/thing/person. He may be an entertaining comic, he might have those "morals", or he may just be cool. But none of those things make him good. Consequently, I'm siding with the majority here when I say that Deadpool is not good and is something to be avoided.
Okay, I hope that made sense. Now, onto the long stuff...
Deadpool was a comic character created some years ago. Initially, he was just a comic book character. When the creator went to the producers and told them his idea, they told him that the character was essentially a direct copy of a DC comic character of similar form.
In answer, they turned this originally normal character into their idea of a comedic joke to literally offend everyone and still make money while they were doing it.
I'm up for the next funny superhero as the next guy, but I think that it is an understatement when I say that Deadpool is not a hero. @Awesome_Lensfun1, even you should know this. Is Deadpool not labeled an anti-hero? Just in case you were planning to drag this out by denying it, I'm just going to say the answer... Yes, yes he is.
Then again, I like anti-heroes too. At times, they add the much needed excitement to the story. However, Deadpool doesn't stop there. The humor he produces is full of crass and inappropriateness. This isn't something to be ignored. When I read books, I look out for violence and things like that, but if it's just going to be filled offensive content and dirty jokes then I'm putting it down. No matter what "good stuff" may be in there, it doesn't change the fact that the book or thing itself already dedicated its existence to that area. That, as anyone can see, is bad. As @Hanna_Brassheart said, this goes for Deadpool in this case.
Deadpool doesn't stop there. I could literally fill up this post with three more paragraphs of everything that he's done, but I honestly can't as most are extremely inappropriate and I also have schoolwork to do. So.. I'll just say some of the ones that younger minds can most likely process:
He kills his enemies. While, I don't really have too much against this as it happens in almost every superhero movie nowadays. (not a good thing), the problem with this concerning Deadpool, is that he makes a joke of it. He enjoys killing his enemies. He (violence)s them multiple times and pulls jokes (albeit inappropriate ones), while he's at it. Is that really the best thing for youth to be taking in and reading in times where shootings and stabbings horrify thousands of families?
He is NOT moral. I don't know if you noticed this, but Deadpool is perfectly fine with lusting and calling after whoever crosses his way. His inappropriateness does not stop there however. He frequently makes fun (the most appropriate phrase I can think of) of multiple people including his own friends. Did I mention that he's ruined multiple characters' lives just so they could be his "sidekick". Incidentally, they usually die.
Alright, I can really think of anymore that would be appropriate enough to say here. So I'll end with these few paragraphs.
One does not get to Heaven by works alone. You may think that that Bible concept has no meaning here, but on the contrary, I think it does. @Awesome_Lensfun1, you were defending Deadpool, (which is fine, everyone is entitled to their own opinion), and you did so by saying that he was not devoid of good and that the good outweighs the bad in certain cases. So, I'm going to tell you right now, NO. The "good" never outweighs the bad. That's a made-up concept by those who thought that they didn't need God to obtain eternal life.
One does not get to Heaven by works along, @Awesome_Lensfun1. No matter how much good Deadpool does, it does not change the fact that he is both immoral and inappropriate. Unless that changes, the fact that he isn't good won't either. I think that we both know that that's never going to happen.
On a more contemporary side-note, even if the good did outweigh the bad. That still doesn't stand in Deadpool's case. You may choose to ignore the wrong he does, but that doesn't work in an argument. In an argument, ALL good and wrong the subject under consideration has done is argued over. So you can say that the good outweighs the bad, but that doesn't work as it really doesn't. If you go back and make sure, you will know why. So no, the good does not outweigh the bad in Deadpool. In fact, it's quite the opposite.
Lastly, I'll say this.
Deadpool is not good. That much is clear. I don't even consider reading or watching him because that type of media has nothing to teach me in terms of 'good morals'. I know enough that some types of entertainment are simply evil and too much for even a mature Christian. Deadpool, in my eyes, does not compare to Hunger Games or something similar to that.
If you like Deadpool, that's fine. As a character, I like him too. But I only advise you to keep a tight watch over watch really does go into your head from that type of thing. You may not realize it yet, but that type of stuff does affect you when your guard is done. Based on how you defend him, @Awesome_Lensfun1. I'd say your guard is down. Just be careful, okay? None of us want to see you get worked up or something worse over this
That, my friends, is my opinion on this. To make things extra, extra clear. That wasn't meant to be an argument, (as I don't have time to), but rather just something for @Awesome_Lensfun1 and others to consider before watching or reading something like Deadpool.
I hope this helped.
