Agent X

Agent X is a Marvel mercenary that first first appeared in Agent X #1 (Sept 2002). He was created by Gail Simone and Alvin Lee. The series, a pseudo-spin-off of Deadpool, continued the cynical, slapstick action which had characterized its parent series. Indeed, a central feature of Agent X was the question of the title character’s identity, sometimes implied to be Deadpool himself. Deadpool refers to Agent X as his “Earth-2 Counterpart”, a comedic reference to DC Comics’ designation of different Earths for different iterations of identical and similar characters.
