Marvel has decided to give Domino (Neena Thurman) her own comic book. Domino has been a member of Six Pack, X-Force, and X-Corporation. She was created by writer Fabian Nicieza and artist/co-writer Rob Liefeld. Domino’s first full cover story appearance was in X-Force #8 (March 1992) as a past member of the Wild Pack, later renamed Six Pack.
Domino is actually the result of a top-secret government program to develop the perfect weapon. She was the only test subject to survive. Her “luck” power was deemed a failure at meeting the project’s goals.
In addition to her exceptional marksmanship and hand-to-hand skills, Domino possesses “luck” power. This power is actually a mutant ability to subconsciously and psionically initiate random telekinetic acts that affect probability in her favor by making improbable (but not impossible) things occur within her line of sight. This ability can be viewed as either unbelievable good luck for her or catastrophically bad luck for her opponent.
Her “luck” power is triggered when she is in a stressful situation. This effect constantly emanates from her body at all times and is completely subconscious. In order for the luck to take effect, Domino herself must engage in an action whose chance she can affect.
Domino is also a superb marksman with various firearms, highly skilled athlete, excellent swimmer, and adept in the use of explosives. She has extensive training in various armed combat techniques and the martial arts, with Olympic-gold level athletic and acrobatic ability. She also seems to be fluent in multiple languages.
Domino has been revealed to be a character in the Deadpool 2 movie. She has ties to both Deadpool and Cable (also revealed to be in the movie) through her membership in X-Force. It will be interesting to see her “luck” power play off Deadpool’s crazy antics.
Here’s to hoping the Domino comic book stays around for a long time.
