When Disney reacquired the Marvel properties that had been managed by Fox, it paved the best way for the Home of Mouse to make use of characters within the MCU that had been beforehand unavailable to them. There’s been a lot hypothesis on how the likes of the X-Males, the Implausible 4 and Deadpool can be launched into the shared universe, then, and within the case of the latter, there’s a suitably demented risk.
From its inception, occasions within the MCU had been in the end pushed by the ability of the six Infinity Stones, however now that they’re destroyed within the current and the duplicates utilized in Avengers: Endgame have been returned to their authentic deadlines, their place within the ongoing saga is seemingly at an finish. Nonetheless, crossover media and alternate realities have given beginning to 5 different gems (because the comics initially referred to them): Ego, Demise, Construct, Rhythm and Continuity. And as you’ve seemingly assumed, the latter of those is the one in query.
It’s appeared solely as soon as, in a single situation of Deadpool again in 2014 the place the Merc With a Mouth stole it from a sleeping Thanos, and with it he was capable of retcon Marvel historical past. In typical Wade vogue, he deliberate to make use of this godlike energy to merely get petty vengeance on Siryn, a former topic of his infatuation who deserted him when his madness turned an excessive amount of for her to cope with.

As ScreenRant explains:
Deadpool’s story with the Continuity stone is wacky in some ways, however along with giving the consumer the ability to talk to the comedian ebook writers and editors, the stone additionally permits its consumer to vary the tales at will. Since one of many greatest questions relating to Deadpool within the MCU is how his story will match into canon, because the first two films happen in 20th Century Fox’s X-Males universe, Deadpool might use the stone to write down himself into the MCU timeline. No additional clarification could be wanted, and it’s one thing followers might simply settle for.
Such an prevalence would clearly match proper in with Deadpool’s historical past of enjoying quick and free with plausibility, and in addition enable him to turn into part of the MCU in a vogue that ties in with the films’ tone of light-hearted lunacy.
