It's hard to trace exactly when the pairing of Deadpool and Spider-Man, or "Spideypool" as fans affectionately named them, became a thing. One thing we do know, however, is that it sure is popular and it's almost replaced Captain America/Iron Man crossover fan fiction as the most read Marvel slash fiction. This could only have been bolstered by the surge in attention Deadpool has gotten since the release of his first solo movie, not to mention the pair getting their own comic book team-up in 2016. An absolute wealth of art and Tumblr pages exist devoted to the couple, but the Deadpool and Spider-Man slash is where fans have gotten especially creative.
In addition to their physical similarities, Peter Parker and Wade Wilson have a reputation in the Marvel universe for being irritating know-it-alls making them an obviously well-matched twosome. Much like in their comic book series together, fan fiction authors seem to enjoy portraying Peter as the "straight man" to Wade's fluidity, as well as comparing the teen superhero's adorkable inexperience to the confident, open-mindedness of the Merc With A Mouth - usually with hilarious results.
Delve into the weird and kinky world of Deadpool/Spider-Man slash fiction with these extracts!
Peter Discovers He Has A Thing For Women's Underwear (On Wade, That Is)
Baby, I'd Victoria Your Secret Any Day
Wade has developed an annoying habit of breaking into Peter's apartment at all hours of the night. After returning home early one morning, Peter finds the mercenary welcoming him home with pancakes and... women's underwear?
"Wade is… Wade is wearing panties. And a matching bra. They’re pink."
“You…” Peter’s mouth is so dry that it might as well be the Sahara, and he feels like the world’s biggest creeper because he can’t stop staring. “Wade, what are you wearing?”
“What, this?” Wade looks down, takes in the ensemble like he’s just now noticed it, then shrugs. “Everything else is in the wash.”
And because Peter’s known Wade for a while now, he can maybe see how this makes sense--like, maybe Wade has a thing about going commando and just happened to have an old girlfriend’s panties lying around, one thing led to another…but…
“And the bra?” Peter croaks.
Wade just gives him a look, like Peter’s grown a second head or toads are falling out of his mouth or something. “It’s a matched set,” he says. “What was I supposed to do, just not wear it?"
Red Is The New Black
Wade and Peter are cellmates in prison. To protect himself from other inmates' possible harassment, Peter encourages Wade to pretend to be his, uh, "prison daddy."
"Slap my ass,” Peter said, still sotto voce, as Wade reenacted his freezing routine.
Wade closed his eyes—as if he was physically pained—and brought his broad, hard palm down on Peter’s ass, but so gently that Peter didn't wince like he’d been expecting to. “Is that enough for you, you li’l demon?”
Peter met the gazes of the skinheads over Wade’s shoulder. “Harder.”
Wade grumbled something about tall orders and did make Peter wince, this time. The audible impact of the slap rocked Peter forward against Wade and made tears spring up in Peter’s eyes. “Sorry,” Wade mumbled, but Peter shook his head.
“That oughta do it,” Peter said, relief flooding him when even the most persistent of his “suitors” scowled and glanced away. Including the skinheads. “If they sense the slightest lack of, um, enthusiasm in your fondness for me, they’ll try to… fill the gap themselves.”
There was a beat of silence.
“Did you seriously just say that?” Wade said, the question emerging distinctly strangled. “Fill the gap? Seriously?"
Peter Has A Really Specific Turn On, Eh?
Peter discovers - through Wade's dulcet tones - that he has a thing for Canadian accents. And it could be a real problem in their professional lives.
"From that evening on, whenever Wade said 'eh,' Peter had to kiss him. No exceptions, it was almost a compulsion, a Pavlovian reaction. It didn't really happen all that often and if Wade had caught on, he didn't let Peter know. Still, it happened every time. Peter had honestly no idea what to do about it. Did the Daily Bugle had an advice column?
Dear J.J, I can't help but to get horny and kiss my boyfriend every time he acts Canadian, how do I stop?"
Iron Man Attempts To Give Peter A Sex-Ed Talk
Oblivious In Love
After noticing that Peter has been spending a lot of time with a certain trouble-making assassin, Tony Stark offers to upgrade his young apprentice's Spider-suit. Peter, however, misinterprets the offer and high jinks ensue.
“We all just noticed that you’ve been hanging out with Deadpool lately and,” Oh god no he is not really suggesting what Peter thinks, “We just want you to be safe as part of the team—”
“We’re not having sex,” Peter blurts out quickly.
Tony raises a brow at him. “I meant because he’s a violent maniac that we don’t want to kill you.”
“But if that’s the case, I can give you some—”
“Oh my god, no,” Peter groans, hiding his face in his hands. He just made the worst slip in front of Iron Man. He just insinuated the possibility that Wade and he were having sex—in front of Iron Man.
And did Peter just really jump to he and Wade having sex?"
