Mint CGC 10 New Mutants #98, first appearance of Deadpool, sells for almost $16K

 The Merc with a Mouth has a popular cult following and one of his fans spent a ton of cash to own a mint copy of his first appearance in comics.

Rob Liefeld, who both wrote and drew New Mutants #98 (Fabian Nicieza scripted), reported the sale on twiiter and posted a picture of the book itself on Instagram.

Ryan Reynolds played the character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and plans for a solo feature film has long been rumored.

Deadpool recently reached as high as #31 on IGN’s list of the Top 100 Comic Book Heroes, which is not a bad showing for a character that was created during the presidency of the first George Bush (1991).

No final word on Deadpool’s appearance in a possible X-Force movie, but the move would seem likely.
