Rumors Reveal Details About ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ Villain, Cassandra Nova


Months before the teaser trailer for ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ was released rumors were going around that Emma Corrin would be playing the movie’s villain Cassandra Nova. Those rumors were confirmed by US Copyright Listing, and later by the official IMDb page. Now Cassandra Nova is a character from the comics.

She has a pretty gruesome and heartbreaking backstory. Cassandra was Xavier’s twin while both were gestation in the womb. Xavier recognized Cassandra as being the so-called “Mummudrai” by the Shi’ar, an equal and opposite spirit of Professor Charles Xavier. Due to Xavier’s genetic potential, Cassandra was able to manifest in physical form, effectively becoming his twin. However, when gestating in their mother’s womb, Sharon Xavier, Cassandra was recognized by Charles as malevolent, leading him to attempt to kill her with his emerging psychic abilities. This resulted in a miscarriage for Sharon, although Cassandra survived and spent decades in a sewer wall, constructing a new body and plotting revenge against her brother.

Cassandra, being basically a clone of Xavier, managed to access the full potential and full scope of all powers that he did have and could have had. Among other overwhelming powers and Xavier’s telepathy, Cassandra also has access to telekinetic abilities. With her telekinesis, Cassandra is able to levitate and manipulate both living beings and objects. She is capable of generating powerful telekinetic shields as well as generating powerful and devastating blasts of pure, concentrated telekinetic energy.

Now Cryptic HD QUALITY, a notable leaker and scooper with high accuracy rates overall has revealed what we can expect from Cassandra in the upcoming movie. Apparently, the only way to stop Nova’s telepathy would be Magneto’s helmet but she already got to it first:

Cryptic also confirmed that Nova will be fairly comic-accurate which will please some fans familiar with the source material.

We look forward to Cassandra Nova in the MCU, and hopefully, this is a hint that Professor X will also make an appearance considering their significant connection in the source material.
