Deadpool I suspect. What with his Bugs Bunny like success rate, aura of popular sales, ongoing series, and perhaps the most important in universe, his damn fine win/loss record. He's also suprisingly intelligent, note the Bugs Bunny comparison.

Going by sheer Wolverine levels of overexposure, Deadpool is head and shoulders above the rest.

Taskmaster. Super professional and would probably take almost any job.

Moon Knight was one of the worlds best before he gave up and became a hero

Purpose of this thread Deadpool, Taskmaster, Crossbones, Bullseye, Silver sable, Paladin, Mystique, Spymaster are all up there

Wolverine, Sabretooth aren't really mercenaries anymore. Same for Heroes for Hire

Depends on what you mean by best, but I think Bullseye and Taskmaster were stated to be the most well-paid

If you say so, though you're wrong.
Just means he's not discriminating.

Just means he's not discriminating.

"Hey, I have this job that no one will touch because it's too dangerous"

"Call Taskmaster, Gary, you idiot. He'll take any job"

Therefore, Tasky is the best. Once again, it depends on your definition of "best". Neo is right, so stop being a salty dick

So you think the willingness to take dangerous and morally corrupt missions is not a good quality for a career where people offer you dangerous and morally corrupt missions?

Nah.
I want a merc who's selective in taking jobs, one who's going to vet me even as i'm looking to hire him.
If you want the merc equivalent of a slut, who's going for anything that gets offered, thats fine.
Thing about sluts is, you cant trust them.
In a merc situation that translates to probably getting double crossed because someone offers more cash.
