Marvel Legends: Deadpool 2 - Negasonic Teenage Warhead - Hasbro 2020

I pride myself on knowing a lot about comic book characters. My social circle is decidedly not nerdy so when we all go to see the latest blockbuster, I'm the one getting questions whispered to me during the movie.. "Who is that supposed to be?" "Do they have powers?" "Are they good or bad?" I get over my mortification about theatre chatter and dip into my wealth of knowledge. But every so often I get completely stumped. The most recent example was Negasonic Teenage Warhead in Deadpool (2016) and Deadpool 2 (2018). She had a great presence, an awesome look, and she seemed powerful, but I had absolutely no clue who this character was. I'm kind of glad I didn't either, because after some research, I think I like the cinematic interpretation way better that the original comic. With her cool name and edgy look, her sonic burst powers in the movies make a better match than her precognitive telepathic abilities in the comics. Plus I always dig a costum eover street clothes. Let's check out Ellie below!

Hasbro has done something very interesting with their paint applications. As an amateur customizer myself, I know that yellow paint is probably the trickiest color to get right. Mostly because there is an odd quality that bolder yellows are more transparent and more opaque yellows lean toward pastel. Hasbro has disappointed me several times with poorly-applied yellow paint (Captain Marvel's chest logo and Hellcat's knees come to mind). But it seems like they have a new method of multi-layered yellow paint applications. That is how we have such bold yellow painted over black here. But... take a peek at her Right thigh below. The masking isn't lined up and gives an unfocused look. Her collar area suffers from some similar alignment issues. But overall, at a quick glance, her colors look bright and crisp and this is a major step in the right direction.

Negasonic Teenage Warhead comes with two energy cuffs (the same ones that have come with the past figures like Scarlet Witch), and two pairs of hands.

How amazing would it have been if she came with a flipping-the-bird hand? That would make for a fun character display and I would love to pose so many other figures wielding it. But, alas, mommy shoppers have a lot of censorship power.

Here is Ellie and her gf Yukio. I believe this is the first LGBTQ relationship portrayed in a Marvel movie.

Ellie's outfit was similar, but not nearly as cool, in the first Deadpool movie. I'm pretty sure her comic look was always gothy pedestrian clothes.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Ellie with her pack-mate, Deadpool.

And with the Deadpool 2 gang all together: Deadpool, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Domino.

And my Movie Mutant Ladies: Domino, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Mystique.



  1. Really cool looking figure and I liked her in the movies. This figure is very nice. Good post.

  2. Great figure and loved her character in the movies.

  3. Basically what happened was, she was completely different in the comics but the writers loved the name. So, in a trade off as at the time, Fox owned Ego and Marvel Studios wanted him for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, so a trade off was made. They'll use the name and in turn, Marvel gets Ego back.
