Joe Kelly did a really good job at fleshing him out and making him more than just the straight mercenary type that Rob Leifeld invented him as. Kelly added all sorts of layers to him, and his madness was something that hovered in the background rather than always being in your face. Rick Remenders X-Force did well with the character, as did Daniel Way in my opinion.
The current ongoing title has been a disappointment. Its written by a couple of guys who write comedy for TV and have no experience writing comics, so its little more than a succession of tit and fart jokes.

: solely to be Extreme! with In-Your-Face!
: attitude to go with a gritty, dark past that

: I know he's got alot of fans, but I don't
