Deadpool is dating again in his latest solo comic, and his love interest is a fashionable nonbinary assassin.

Valentine Vuong was introduced in Deadpool #1 late last year as part of the Atelier, a deadly group of assassins that tasked Wade Wilson with taking out Doctor Octopus. It seems to be infatuation at first sight for the mercenary, and Vuong quickly won readers over as well.

Issue #3 of the series was released this week, and things have progressed nicely between the two. A panel shared on Twitter shows them spending time together at the zoo before reportedly having to pivot from burgeoning romance to dealing with a mutated giraffe attack.

According to CBR, this is the first time Deadpool has been given a shot at a non-heterosexual relationship in the comics. However, he has been identified as pansexual in the past.

Notably, these comics were penned by Alyssa Wong, who is nonbinary and uses they/them pronouns just like Vuong does. Wong previously wrote for Doctor Aphra, whose titular antihero is a rare queer character within the Star Warsuniverse.

As for Wilson and Vuong, fans will have to keep reading the current Deadpool series to see what becomes of their adventurous courtship, but considering how good the reviews have been so far, that should be an exciting journey to be had.

Yes, Deadpool is presented as pansexual in the comics.

Will there be a Deadpool 3?

The third installment of the film series starring Ryan Reynolds is expected in November 2024.
