Deadpool (2016) saw Gina Carano embrace the superhero genre in her portrayal of Angel Dust, opposite the man himself, Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds).

Angel Dust is a human who received superhuman strength and durability from an aumentation procedure that awakened her dormant X-genes and turned her into a mutate. She received these powers after volunteering for a procedure that granted people superhuman abilities.  She later assisted Ajax (Ed Skrein) in triggering a mutation in Wade Wilson (Reynolds), with the intent of turning him into an assassin that could be auctioned off to the highest bidder.  However, Wade would soon escape and become a mercenary known as Deadpool. The movie proceeded with the typical Marvel fun (although perhaps a little more adult), and at the end of the movie Angel Dust engages in a lengthy but legendary fight with the mutant, Colossus (Stefan Kapicic). Although it was unclear what happened to Angel Dust, this role definitely let Carano shine in the Marvel franchise.

Character Name: Angel Dust

Carano proved that not all mutants are good guys in her portrayal of Angel Dust. Co-stars include: Ryan Reynolds, Ed Skrein, and Karan Soni
