Quote1 Do you know why I took the name Patient Zero? Because I was infected... not by a disease but by "men." Peter Parker and Wade Wilson. A life tainted by fools. Everything that's happened... And will happen, was bought and paid for long ago. Quote2

Weasel Deadpool07p06

Weapons Dealer for "Deadpool"

At some point he became a weapons dealer and tech-guy for Deadpool. In Sarajevo Weasel was attacked by Sinsear. He interrogated him to find Deadpool. Weasel told him that Deadpool was out looking for Vanessa Carlysle. Sinsear then said that he was looking for "the other" actually and that Deadpool was a means to an end.[2]

Weapon X attacked Deadpool at Weasel's place, looking for information and this is what they are fighting each other to try to get. The only problem is that neither one has the information the other is needing. They tear up the place and then Weasel finally stopped them and brings this realization to them and Weapon X left.[3] In Cairo, Deadpool called Weasel from the airport and he told him the flight that Black Tom and Juggernaut were leaving on and then he told it was leaving right then for Dublin.[4]

The Executive Elite tried to take out Deadpool only to found out what he knew about Tolliver's will. Unfortunately, is was a trap so Weasel could get his hands on the disc that they had. Deadpool takes out Makeshift and Rive, while Weasel takes out Commcast and gets the disc. He combines it with theirs and learn that the prize is in Nepal.[5]

They found Tolliver's estate and get in, taking out the monks that live there, only they've been followed by Weapon X. Inside, Slayback is waiting for them with Copycat, they all begin to fight, but accidentally activate Tolliver's weapon in the process - an A.D.A.M. Unit. It neutralizes and completely disintegrates Slayback, and is about to do the same to Deadpool when he tells it that he is the only thing that can save Copycat's life. He has her absorb some of his healing abilities, and she begins to heal from being impaled by Slayback earlier. The A.D.A.M. Unit then leaves, as does Weapon X, saying that he's tired of hating Deadpool's guts. Deadpool feels like he's turned over a new leaf, and takes some gold items from the monastery as payment. [5]

The House

More recently, he was seen acting as an armored security force in Las Vegas going by the name "The House". After battling Deadpool (and temporarily defeating him), the Merc offered to work with Weasel as his sidekick using a secondary set of armor and the name Wildcard. During a battle with Grizzly, Wildcard then made House look useless, so the next time Deadpool proposed that Weasel switch identities and take the credit for Wildcard's heroics. During a second fight with Grizzly, Weasel made Wildcard look like the hero of the fight, while Deadpool (as the House) stood by doing nothing and subsequently escaping with Grizzly and the stolen money. Now that House had become a criminal, Weasel tried to defeat Deadpool in battle, but the Merc escaped despite seemingly being killed by Weasel (still as Wildcard). When Wildcard bosses tried to find a body inside the House armor there was nothing, so Weasel couldn't clear his name and remained a fugitive, while Deadpool resumed the identity of Wildcard (although he renounced it shortly thereafter).[6]

Patient Zero

Jack returned under the moniker Patient Zero and claimed that his life had been tainted by both Peter Parker and Deadpool, for which he set out to destroy them.[7]

Patient Zero put a plan in motion, and contacted Deadpool to have him kill Parker. In order to convince the mercenary that Parker was evil and deserved to be killed, Patient Zero also hired Mysterio to stage a massive hallucinogenic attack in New York which allowed him to sneak into Parker Industries and forge evidence to involve Parker Industries in illegal and cruel experiments on humans.[8][7]

Once Deadpool killed Peter Parker, Patient Zero impersonated him and extracted every piece of data Parker Industries had on genetic splicing to improve his experiments, the Man-Strosities.[9][7] However, Parker was eventually brought back to life by Deadpool, who learned he had been tricked by his client and decided to call in a favor from his ex-girlfriend, the personification of Death itself.

Deadpool decided to extract revenge on Patient Zero, and traced his money deposits back to his base, a glass house. Peter Parker followed Deadpool under his secret superhero alter-ego of Spider-Man, and together they confronted Patient Zero and his Man-Strosities. After the villain confirmed Spider-Man's theories regarding his involvement in the recent events that affected Parker's life, Patient Zero taunted them, noting that they yet hadn't discovered his motives nor his true identity. After hinting a connection between the three of them, including the fact that his actions were seemingly in revenge, Patient Zero activated a conductor meant to attract the glass that composed his base to Spider-Man and Deadpool in order to pierce them with shards of glass, and teleported away.

He later returned to an undisclosed location, where a female willing test subject was being injected with blood from both Spider-Man and Deadpool.[7]

After unleashing the test subject, who would be dubbed Itsy Bitsy, Patient Zero was lured by Spider-Man to one of Deadpool's hideouts. The villain arrived pleading for protection. When he was about to reveal his origins and motivations to the two heroes, he was abruptly cut into pieces by Itsy Bitsy, who would later explain she had differences with Patient Zero. He wanted Itsy Bitsy to kill Spider-Man and Deadpool while she wanted to team up with them and punish criminals with a much more brutal brand of justice.[10]
