Ever read the original X-Force series where DeadPool was a main character (connections to Toliver)? He wasn't just some doofus doing whacky stupid things. He's a cold, calculated killer who incessantly mocked his targets.

The series is ranges from relatively to very dark, but has basically all kinds of humor by design. Slapstick is just harder to show off on paper.
I'm aware mate. What it was
is not what it is
, and the less-dark Deadpool is canon as far as Marvel is concerned. Look who they played as Wade in X-Men Origins: Wolverine? The slapstick comment was not that it was appropriate for a Deadpool feature, but that it's never been as feasible on paper and is more expected to see in a game.
Still gonna get it, and I'll probably still like it. I need to find and dig out those comics and see how far back they go...
