In the latest movie, Deadpool 2, the X-Force has on its team, Domino, who is full of luck. She is the only female member of this super-hero group and she is the only one other than Deadpool to survive the ill-fated yet extremely hilarious mission.
Deadpool had called out her powers for not being a very cinematic one. But Domino has the power of tychokinesis which is the mutant ability to affect the probability of things and make everything turn out in their favor. Deadpool 2 had made Domino’s powers very cinematic as it showed how the obstacles move out of her way and all the foes just fall and she wins with no explanation.
In the movie, there was a truck chase where Deadpool had stopped the Cable from shooting Russell. Domino was driving the vehicle while all the other cars just crashed out of her way. Her luck had allowed her to even parachute and land without a single scratch and the rest of X-Force were destroyed.
The movie has proven that there are no limits to the character’s luck. Many fans have complained that the movie does sideline her in the epic final fight; Cable, Colossus and Deadpool, took down Juggernaut and Domino was just standing there giving her origin story. This had massively undercut all the tension built up in her action sequences as she is beating up all the villains who are in no way any match for the character. So, her powers did seem, well, overpowered.
But we must note that there are so many mutants in the entire X-Men franchise who are overpowered other than her. Charles Xavier can freeze people and this is a little scary. Storm can control the weather and make it change as she wishes. Magneto is seriously overpowered and can destroy cities and even destroy the entire Earth if he launched all the nuclear missile at once.
Well, compared to all the heavy-hitters, a character that possesses the power of being lucky is not unreasonable and Domino’s probability might top them all.
To bring this character to life is Zazie Beetz, the American actress who has really done a great job in portraying this character. She has the figure and charisma to pull off a Domino and she nailed it. But while we praise Beetz’ performance, let us not forget that there are many fans out there who have chosen her character for cosplay. These 20 cosplays will make you wonder if they are better than Zazie Beetz’ Domino:
Ohh La La!
