Respect threads are popping on like mushroms so I thought it would be time to make one for one of the most awesome and original Marvel characters as well. Hey, she's a strong, self confident woman with her own personality and before Marvel created Longshot she truly had an unique power. So...

Respect to Domino!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Feel free to contribute and remember this is a resppect, NOT A HATE thread. If you don't like Domino it's okay but don't ruin this thread with starting sh1t.

I like Domino but I don't have much to say about her.I haven't seen much of her.

I LOVE the b!tch personally. And i hate that they made her a baddy in the Wolverine and the X-men show. Also i cant wait to see more of her in X-force.

Yeah she is, I like how she's started using her probability power's like scarlet witch does.

But I hate how thats the only power Domino has and they freaking have Scarlet Witch basically owning that power because she can use it the best and the fact that scarlet witch has other power's two other then probability munipulation is totally like saying a big F#ck you Domino because she cant use it as well as Scarlet can...its stupid.

Did anyone understand what I just said because I sure in hell didnt? LOL

Gist: its dumb that Scarlet Witch has that power and other powers to while Domino is just stuck with that one and cant even use it as good as Scarlet Witch can.

Well, Domino's power is okay for me. She differs from the Scarlet witch's one in the fact that she doesn't use them consciously most of the time. Where Scarlet Witch makes impossible things happen (like gun barrels melting, changing oxygen to poison gas or depowering all mutants) Domino's power are far more subtle. She just increases the probability of events. Guns misfiring, an opponent stumbling, a roof breaking down, etc. Scarlet Witch needs her powers because honestly she sucks at hand to hand fighting and probably would shoot herself if she ever tried to use a gun but Domino is an expert markswoman and a skilled h2h fighter. She doesn't need the powers on this scale. This is why I love her so much. Even without godlike powers she has beaten opponents that are far more powerful than her. Big, mighty ppowers would ruin her character. She is badass enough on her own.

Basically the writers say "F*ck you Scarlet B1tch, you'll never be as awesome as Domino that is why you need those reality bending powers!" not the other way round.

(I apologize to all Wanda fans, this is not exactly my oppinion, I like her as well, just tried to make my point understood.)

It isn't certified that this is the Domino that we know. It's not probable that she was depowered after M-Day since she used her powers in X-Men: Civil War quite often but someone on this board suggested that it might be a shapeshifter taking her form to fool X-Force like Copycat did back then.

Too recycled? Since when does Marvel shy away from recycling ideas? lol Don't think it's the virus, her luck would probably prevent this and as far as I know the virus doesn't cancel out powers fully. If you ask me it's just bad writing.

It isn't about the appeareance but about the powers that she displays.

She was not in the real Civil War but in the X-Men spinoff where she and Shatterstar liberated the 198 from their camp in the garden of the X-Mansion. In the course of this story arc she let several guns misfire, one jamming completely, and a lightning strike a sentinel. Should be enough proof that she is still powered in my eyes.

In fact Copycat impersonated her before she first appeared. lol Domino was introduced in OLD X-Force and later it was shown that it had been Copycat all the timeand the real Dom was sitting somewhere captured before she could escape.

And yeah, that was cool. Say CHEESE sentinel! lightning flashes

First time I've seen her, it was in uncanny X-men on the Madureira Run, in the Onslaught story Arc, I remember saidin' to myself : "Whoaw, this girl is a blast !" ad she's not even appearing more than two or three times in the comics. I didn't know her power, but I wanted to know all about her.

She's a cool caracter, even if I think she was not really good handled by the writer, and her love story with Cable rather bothering me...but anyway, I still like her, she's very cool !!  loved particularly when she's drawed by Ian Churchill or Madureira. 

Total respect !

LOL!  I can't imagine Dom cleaning her hands repeatedly like an OC.  I've never heard of that before, but it doesn't seem to fit with her history of running around as a mercenary with the Six Pack.

I'm not convinced Red She-Hulk is Domino.  I'm leaning towards the idea that she's several characters in one, including a part of Domino, Elektra and Thundra. 
 
And considering how old Cable is now (and he wasn't a Spring Chicken to begin with ;) and the fact that they've both spent a lot of time apart, then I don't think they should be a couple again.  I loved them together, but that was a decade ago... maybe more.

  • D stands for "Daring" because she runs around with nearly unkillable (Wolvie, X-23), super strong (Warpath), potential Omega level (Elixir) mutants and still manages to hold her own. 
  • O stands for "Original" because that she was in power and personality and still is to the present day.
  • M stands for "Mutant" because that is what she is and what she is fighting for with all of her strong conviction.
  • I stands for her famous "Incredible Luck"
  • N stands for "Naturally The Best". Nuff' said. (some people also say it stands for "Nathan" her true love but... naaaah...)
  • O stands for "Oh my god" because that is always what I think first when I see her in action.
 
Combine all that awesomeness and you get one tenth of the greatness that Domino is because that is only her name.
