Deadpool -Red Band Trailer #2 -Negasonic Teenage Warhead explained

20th Century Fox released not one but two Deadpool trailers for Christmas. Both were loaded with new footage, such as our first look at Negasonic Teenage Warhead (played by Brianna Hildebrand) using her mutant powers. In the comics, Negasonic Teenage Warhead’s power set was purely psychic, but for her feature film debut filmmaker Tim Miller gave her new abilities that are more fitting of her unusual name.

  
“Her power, I mean, we chose her because we wanted a trainee for Colossus in the film and the writers and I just fell in love with her name,” Miller told Empire. “It’s just so out there and so Deadpool and it was Grant Morrison who named her, so we knew we had to get her in there. And then we thought, well, we’re going to need to make her powers fit with who she feels like she is in the movie and so to me it’s just like other characters in the Marvel universe, like Nitro, for instance, whose power is to just explode parts of their body. But we did try to do it so that it wasn’t just a simple, ‘oh, I can explode’, she can transfer the force of the explosion down so she can move upwards – she can put it into a punch if she wanted to. So it was really just her fist exploding as she hit somebody. we tried to mix it up, even though we didn’t use that particular thing in the movie, but it was the idea. Actually, we did use it in the movie, it’s just not in the movie now!”

  
Miller then describes Negasonic Teenage Warhead’s personality and her relationship with the Merc with a Mouth. “I think Deadpool wishes she’d keep her mouth shut more than she does in the film! Because she’s quite snarky,” he explained. “But, you know, her whole attitude is this disaffected teen who thinks Deadpool’s just a douchebag. And so that’s her whole attitude. She’s really not that silent in the film or at least she’s silently surly because she just can’t be bothered to engage with this a**hole. That’s the basics of her personality: silently shaming, judgemental personality.”

Illyana Rasputin

A brief history of Illyana Rasputin (Magik)

Illyana Rasputin (born Illyana Nikolievna Rasputina) was born in the Ust-Ordynski Collective farm, near Lake Baikal, Siberia, Russian SFSR, Soviet Union to Nikolai Rasputin and his wife Alexandra Natalya Rasputina. Illyana’s two older brothers, Mikhail Nikolaievitch Rasputin and Colossus (Piotr “Peter” Nikolaievitch Rasputin) are also mutants. Colossus’ superhuman powers manifest while saving Illyana from a runaway tractor.

origin of magik

Illyana is called to the Limbo dimension by Belasco, who seeks to bring forth the Elder Gods to rule Earth.  She is raised there, frequently bullied and tormented by Belasco’s underling S’ym.  In order to free himself, Belasco needs to fill the Beatrix Medallion with five bloodstones. The bloodstones are created by corrupting Illyana’s soul, with a new stone appearing as her corruption deepens. She is rescued and tutored in the practice of white magic by that dimension’s version of Storm (who turned to magic when her mutant powers waned).

Review: Uncanny X-Men #32

jaythreadbear

Concise

At long last we are getting some answers in Brian Michael Bendis’ over-wrought Uncanny X-Men saga, yet for every smart or interesting moment there is a boring or inexplicable one. Scott Summers has made up his mind to bring an end to his mutant ‘revolution’ and some of what follows is strong character work, even despite the ultimately anti-climactic nature of the narrative. At least Chris Bachalo is on hand to make every single panel look characterful, complex, and unique.

Spoilerful

Writer Brian Michael Bendis has started moving his pieces into place for the run up to his big finish on the X-books in the next few months. The upside of this is that we are finally beginning to see some resolution to the overarching plots and labyrinthine character dynamics that Bendis has been spinning-up over his tenure as writer. Unfortunately there is also an unavoidable sense that there was…

Magneto vs. Apocalypse

Age of Apocalypse: Magneto vs. Apocalypse

“Age of Apocalypse” is a 1995–1996 comic book crossover story line published in the X-Men franchise of books by Marvel Comics. The Age of Apocalypse briefly replaced the universe of Earth-616 and had ramifications in the main Marvel Comics universe when the original timeline was restored. It was later retconned as having occurred in the alternate universe of Earth-295.
Legion (David Haller), a psionic mutant on Earth and son of Professor Charles Xavier, travels back in time with the intention of killing Magneto.
However, Legion traveled to a time when Magneto and Xavier were still friends. As Xavier dies trying to protect Magneto, Legion vanishes, and a new timeline is created. The only person aware of how history has changed is Bishop, a time traveling mutant who followed Legion.
Because of Xavier’s sacrifice, Magneto comes to believe in his late friend’s dream of a peaceful coexistence between humans and mutants.
Apocalypse, an immortal mutant villain, was monitoring the fight. He chooses this moment as the perfect time to begin his world conquest, which did not happen in the mainstream Marvel universe for another ten years.
Magneto assembles the X-Men just as Apocalypse begins his war. Despite the X-Men’s resistance, Apocalypse conquers all of North America and eventually mutants are considered the ruling class. Apocalypse also initiated a genocidal campaign called “cullings” killing millions of humans. To further ensure that no one was left to challenge him or undo the circumstances that led to his reign, he had everyone with telepathic or chronal abilities hunted down.
Meanwhile, the changes in the timeline result in a destructive crystallization wave created by the M’Kraan Crystal.
The Amazing X-Men consist of team leader Quicksilver and Storm, Dazzler, Banshee, Iceman, and Exodus.  The team is sent to Maine by Magneto to aid in the evacuation of humanity to Europe. During this mission, the team fights Apocalypse’s Brotherhood of Chaos, as well as the Horseman Abyss, who is defeated (but not killed) by Banshee. During their absence from the Xavier Mansion, Magneto and Bishop are attacked by Apocalypse himself, who captures them both.
Fulfilling their mission, Quicksilver splits up his team to help the other X-Men: sending Iceman to rendezvous with Rogue’s team (the Astonishing X-Men) and Dazzler and Exodus to find Magneto’s son, Charles. Finally, Quicksilver, Storm, and Banshee go to rescue Bishop, who is in the hands of the Madri, Apocalypse’s priests.
