Domino – Killer Instinct | Comics

As a sharpshooting mercenary Domino always made her own luck but what happens when her powers finally betrays her?

After hanging out with Mercs for Money and then tangling up with X-Force for a while to chase Weapon H, Neena Thurman decides to be soldier of fortune once again. As Domino, she forms a new mercenary group called The Posse with fellow merc Rachel Leighton AKA Diamondback and Inez Temple AKA Outlaw to get back to her old business.

It's Neena's birthday and they took a job to look into the Rural Route D72, where loggers involved in timber piracy are going missing. Inez and Neena go there to face off a gang of Russians and it turns out to be a trap for them. The latter came under heavy fire but the former came to rescue her and deliver a "Fastball Special".

The bait who turned into a creature is a mutant named Adelbert Greywing that they apprehend and their third accomplice Diamondback (not to be confused with Willis Stryker) arrives. Neena decides to let Adelbert tag along with them, probably because of birthday blues but Rachel strongly suggests against her habit of picking up strays.

Back at her apartment, Neena is surprised to see her new besties threw her a party by calling in Agent X, Amadeus Cho, Deadpool, ex-boyfriend club consisting Cable, Colossus and Warpath, Negasonic Teenage Warhead, her friends Kitty Pryde, Pixie and Storm from X-Men, fellow merc Taskmaster and even got The Dazzler to sing at her party.

In the middle of the performance, she suddenly starts having grim flashbacks of her past and then Rachel presents her a pug as a gift, which she names Pip. Outside, Alex and Wade inform Rachel of a bounty on her head placed by Topaz. In her room, an elderly fellow with a walker comes in with his caregiver to wish on her birthday.

The nurse turns out to be the one called Topaz, whom DP was referring to and she viciously unloads her on Domino. While she desperately seeks help from her "Good Luck" power, her attacker thrashed her and then threw her out of the window. As she ran out of luck, Neena thinks of hitting the pavement and nothing to hold on to.

Topaz apparently turned off her mutant power but then her employer tells her to give Neena her juice back and suddenly Spider-Man comes swinging to save her. At the same time, those two are apprehended by Deadpool, Diamondback and Outlaw for breaking in. However, the elderly suddenly got younger and teleported out with his nurse.

Inez and Rachel go to fetch her while Wade stays back to make sure she is okay. Next morning, she meets Amadeus Cho to talk about a way to prevent anyone from switching her power off and sees that she still got it by taking out a group of thugs in park.

The Posse heads to stop a robbery on a riverboat as their next job with Cho hanging out with them. Though it was an inside job from her employer, she took care of the gig and then the freaky couple of her newfound enemies arrive once again. The elderly is much younger now due to her suffering restores years to his life.

While she thought they came here to kill her for that, they blew up the boat they came in to kill her friends and add more sufferings to her life. After being stranded between dream and memories for a while, she gives the attackers a chase. This time Topaz gets a beating before she could even react but still teleported out with her partner.

All of her friends are revealed to be alive because Diamondback sensed that their boat was rigged. Earlier Neena asked Cho for help and he suggests that she train her powers. To start with, he even recommends her taking a twelve hour flight to go to Hong Kong and meet Master of Kung Fu; Shang-Chi to hone her power under his tutelage.

Back home, Inez and Rachel calls in Wade Wilson to get more info on Topaz so they can take her out for their friend. Meanwhile, more flashbacks from her past on Project Armageddon come to haunt her as she readies her at Shang-Chi's dojo.

Iron Fist | Comics

Daniel Rand is the son of businessman Wendell Rand, who had a link to the mystic realm of K'un-Lun and lost his parents as a child in accident. Danny was taken back to K'un-Lun and received extensive martial art training under the tutelage of Lei Kung the Thunderer, to eventually gain the power of Iron Fist by defeating the serpent called Shou-Lao the Undying.

As Iron Fist, he fought Sabretooth before joining Heroes For Hire with Colleen Wing, Misty Knight, Shang-Chi, Jack of Hearts and White Tiger. His inheritance of Rand-Meachum, Inc. made him pretty rich but he chose to fight crime teaming up with Luke Cage; the Power Man. Following Onslaught Saga, the departure of many heroes caused Danny to recruit Namor, the Sub-Mariner to expand his team.
