Domino (Neena Thurman, Marvel Prime)

Some people are born lucky. Domino can make her own luck. Literally. Introduced in X-Force #8 (1992)by Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld, (well techincally New Mutants #98, but that was proven to be Copycat) Domino is Cable second in command for most of his teams. She was one of the first people he recruited when he came back in time and helped form the Six Pack. However when he went to train the New Mutant, he wanted Domino to come with him but she was kidnapped and swapped with Copycat, her took her place on the team. She was eventually rescue and joined the X-force, which she remained on for most of her career. She became the team’s den mother and eventual leader when Cable left.

As well as the X-force, she works as a mercenary as well as being part of the bigger X-men team as well as being part of Wolverine’s Uncanny X-force. She has also return to both the X-force, Six Pack and most recently Merc for Money with Deadpool.

As for figures, She has not been one of the most famous mutants (mostly due to her not appearing in anything other than comics), so she hasn’t had many figures. She had one in a store exclusive 2-pack with Cannonball but both those figures used really old molds. The only reason she is getting another is cause she is in the next Deadpool movie.


Haves:

Six Pack (Cable and Deadpool Version)

01

Recommend Figure: Hasbro Walmart Exclusive Marvel Legends 2-pack Domino with Cannonball

  • Background:
    • When Cable’s power went through the roof, Domino joined a new team of Six Pack. She only went with the team in order to check on Cable and eventually joined him in Providence to help him overload his powers. She wore this for a while during this.
  •  Why you need it for your collection?:
    • While this is not a bad figure by any means, it uses an older more rubbery build (basically a repaint of the X-men Classic’s X-treme Rogue). I would say get this if you can find it MOC with Cannonball (which we only have one). Otherwise get the one below.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • Maybe if she proves popular after the Deadpool 2 movie. Otherwise no.

Uncanny X-force

02

Recommend Figure: Hasbro Marvel Legends Deadpool – Sasquatch Wave Domino

  • Background:
    • Haven been out of the picture for years, Domino eventually reappeared to help the Cyclop’s found, Wolverine lead X-force team, which she remained with until the team went into secrecy after Hope’s return. She worn something similar to this until she rejoined the Cable’s X-Force team.
  •  Why you need it for your collection?:
    • Given that this a general retail version, then I would recommend picking this one up if you want a Domino figure in your collection. You will need her for most version of X-force, X-men, Cable and Deadpool collections.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • No.
