she's a mutant....mutants are sometimes born with physical mutations to add to their abilities...i.e. Mystique, Nightcrawler, Caliban, Maggot, etc.

mutants have the potential for having abnormal physical appearances and forms be it subtle (like gambit's eyes or mystique's skin)  or blatantly obvious (the morlocks).  IMO, another reason for making her skin white was in reference to her name.

X-Force is a bit schizo on that matter. In the beginning Elixir wasn't depicted as being golden too. She's a bit pale but that's all. Just another interpretation of that character.

That's the lighting.
Laura, Wolverine, Warpath and Angel all have a darker skin tone.

Elixir on the other hand is different.

Hmm, Domino didn't used to be a mutant.  Guess they changed that for some reason or another.

Domino is an albino.  The white spot is a birthmark.

For a very long time after her first appearance, Domino was never positively identified as being a mutant.

She was just Cable's long-time companion, starting with their time together in 6-pack.

That does not mean she was not a mutant in the past.

I don't think anyone has to say you're a mutant for you to be one.Domino is in the 198 files and the very first Marvel handbook to have Domino in it says she's a mutant.

The X-Force issues during Operation: Zero Tolerance showed some flashbacks to Domino when she was younger.  She had white skin, and no patch.  But she immediately dismissed half of the scenarios on the previous page by saying some of them (she didn't say which) weren't her.

That was when the rogue Prime Sentinel implanted Domino's neck & spine with something to negate her luck powers.  I don't know when that was removed (or retconned).

She probably is a really Gothy chick who got punched in the eye from some one really strong and is still recovering from a bad bruise.

She was part of a top-secret government breeding program intended to develop the perfect weapon as a child. Perhaps the black mark is a brand similiar to bishops and it indicates she was a subject there. 

#32 Posted by xerox_kitty (15762 posts) - - Show Bio

A few months ago I read somewhere that she found she had a brother who also had a patch over his eye.  I think I read this on MarvelDatabase though, so I can't vouch for it's accuracy.

So it could be a brand and her brother could be another surviver of the program.

To have a bruise stay that long like that, you probably need to get hit by someone with, like, Hulk strength.

I believe the spot is actually a tattoo.
