So on the marvel website, they have Deadpool listed as
Intelligence 5
Strength 4
Speed 7
Durability 7
Energy Projection 5
Fighting Skills 7

and Wolverine as
Intelligence 2
Strength 4
Speed 3
Durability 4
Energy Projection 1
Fighting Skills 7

Is this some kind of mess up in the rating system, because I would think that Deadpool would be about the same lines as Wolverine except maybe with a little less Fighting Skills (maybe a 6.) I was wondering if Marvel had a lot of horrible ratings on certain characters, or is their ratings on the site just not viable.

It's clearly not done with any real thought put behind it, ESPECIALLY when it comes to intelligence. Wolverine is supposed to be exceptionally intelligent, despite the persona he usually puts on, but they put him on a significantly lower Intelligence level than someone with permanent brain damage. Harry Osborn is apparently smarter than Norman Osborn is, going by the charts. Reed Richards is listed on the same intelligence tier as GALACTUS. It's best to just ignore the ratings, they're VERY loose estimates that are sometimes outright wrong, and they aren't officially canon anyway.
