An Alliance Forged in Adversity

This betrayal sets the stage for a desperate need to escape, pushing the boundaries of their partnership and survival skills to the limit.

Wolverine’s decision to slice Deadpool into two, to use one half to throw out in order to reach the cage’s switch, showcases a raw survival tactic that pushes Deadpool’s healing abilities to the limit.

This moment highlights not just the physical strain placed on Deadpool but also Wolverine’s tactical yet ruthless approach to leveraging Deadpool’s unique abilities for their mutual escape.

A Terrifying Transformation

Following their escape and during the pursuit of their enemies, Wolverine and Deadpool fall into another trap, leading to an even more gruesome fate.

They are cut to pieces by thousands of special chainsaws, a situation that activates their healing factors in an unprecedented way.

Instead of healing separately, their pieces merge, forming a single entity that combines Deadpool and Wolverine, along with Adamantium rods embedded in their surroundings.

This terrifying transformation creates a grotesque figure, a monstrous amalgamation of flesh and metal, unlike anything seen before in their histories.

Which Part of Deadpool Will Regenerate if Sliced Horizontally Into Two Pieces?

Deadpool’s regenerative power, one of the most intriguing yet inconsistently depicted abilities in comics, begs a question.

If sliced horizontally, which part regenerates?

Common comic logic suggests Deadpool’s regeneration is brain-guided, implying the top half, housing his head, would regenerate the rest of his body. 

And what about if Deadpool is cut in half vertically?
