- "My names Domino. I’m lucky"
- ―Domino to Deadpool[src]
|Appeared in|| Deadpool 2|
Neena Thurman, also known as Domino is a mutant assassin with the ability to control probability in her favor.
As a child, Neena Thurman lived in the Essex House for Mutant Rehabilitation. As an adult, going by Domino, she was in college but dropped out and pursued mercenary work instead.
When Wade Wilson was gathering people for X-Force to protect the child Russell Collins from the mutant time traveler Cable, Domino signed up due to her powers seemingly influencing her to join. When the group parachuted down to stop Cable from getting to Russell's prison convoy Domino was the only one to survive due to her powers. Taking control of the convoy Domino was attacked by Cable. However, she manages to hold her own and is soon joined by Wade. During the battle, Juggernaut is freed and he and Russell escape after wrecking the convoy. Later Domino arrived at Blind Al's house where Wade was recovering from being torn in half by Juggernaut. Cable arrived and made a truce with them to bring down Juggernaut and stop Russell from killing the Headmaster that tortured him. Arriving at the facility, Domino realized that her powers led her to the very place where she was also tormented at. She proceeded to rescue the children there as Cable and Wade stopped Russell from killing the Headmaster. After all was said and done with the Headmaster killed by Dopinder. Domino left the area with the others.
Domino comes across as over confident and cocky due to her powers making things always work out in her favor. While she is usually annoyed by Wade’s constant jokes and foolish nature she seems to trust in him and follows his leadership for the most part. She also has a heroic and selfless side as she rescues the children from the very orphanage she was tormented at.
