Marvel Dice Masters: Deadpool: Negasonic Teenage Warhead
This November sees the newest release for WizKids‘ Dice Masters, Marvel Dice Masters: Deadpool. The set is focused on Deadpool’s world including the X-Men and Weapon X, but the set also includes some other familiar characters and the first appearance of the Inhumans team affiliation. I’ll be reviewing a card a day until the set’s release in a few weeks. But, beyond discussing the cards and how they fit into the Dice Masters game, I’ll also focus on the characters themselves and if the card reflects their comic history.
Next up is Negasonic Teenage Warhead: Foresight, the common version of the card.

Comic origin: Ellie Phimister, aka Negasonic Teenage Warhead, was created by writer Grant Morrison and artist Frank Quitely and debuted in New X-Men #115 in 2001. The character is a member of the Hellfire Club and is telepathic and has precognition.
She was a Genoshan teenager and a student of Emma Frost who was apparently killed during the genocide of Genosha where half the world’s mutants were killed, sixteen million people.
Weirdly the character was later seen as a member of the Hellfire Club and attacked the X-Men.
Even weirder the character was revealed as deceased during the “Necrosha” event and ressurected by the Transmode Viruse. She apparently deceased again.
But not really because she somehow survived and was living in Albuquerque in Marvel NOW!. After initially being captured by Deadpool’s Mercs for Money she joins them.
Live action version: The character is portrayed by Brianna Hildebrand in 2016’s Deadpool.
Card playability: For a 3 BOLT card it’s rather useful, especially since so much of the game involves Global Abilities. To stock up on these and then quickly get a 6A 3D character is solid. It’s one that could be good in draft and I see some use even in constructed play too.
Card vs. Comic: There’s a slight play on her telepathic and precognitive abilities with this.
Final Thoughts: I want to see the other cards in the set to see what combos can be done.
