20th Century Fox’s upcoming Deadpool movie gave us a first look at Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead showing her incredible powers in action, which is much different then they ever were in the comic books. In the Marvel comics, Negasonic Teenage Warhead had psychic precognitive powers and a past was is closely tied with Emma Frost.
In the newest Deadpool movie trailer, director Tim Miller has given her a new set of abilities and a whole new look. In sneak peek images from EW Magazine, it also seems that Miller is going to give the dynamic new character a much more different introduction into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In what looks like classic New Mutants garb, Deadpool the movie is cleverly tying into the X-Men franchise and the future X-Force movie being rumored.

During a recent interview with Empire, Miller talked about Negasonic Teenage’s new “Warhead” powers:
“Her power, I mean, we chose her because we wanted a trainee for Colossus in the film and the writers and I just fell in love with her name. It’s just so out there and so Deadpool and it was Grant Morrison who named her, so we knew we had to get her in there. And then we thought, well, we’re going to need to make her powers fit with who she feels like she is in the movie and so to me it’s just like other characters in the Marvel universe, like Nitro, for instance, whose power is to just explode parts of their body. But we did try to do it so that it wasn’t just a simple, ‘oh, I can explode’, she can transfer the force of the explosion down so she can move upwards – she can put it into a punch if she wanted to. So it was really just her fist exploding as she hit somebody. we tried to mix it up, even though we didn’t use that particular thing in the movie, but it was the idea. Actually, we did use it in the movie, it’s just not in the movie now!”
Miller talks about Negasonic Teenage Warhead’s relationship with the Merc with a Mouth:
“I think Deadpool wishes she’d keep her mouth shut more than she does in the film! Because she’s quite snarky, but, you know, her whole attitude is this disaffected teen who thinks Deadpool’s just a douchebag. And so that’s her whole attitude. She’s really not that silent in the film or at least she’s silently surly because she just can’t be bothered to engage with this a**hole. That’s the basics of her personality: silently shaming, judgemental personality.”
Marvel Universe Bio: Negasonic Teenage Warhead
Ellie Phimister “Negasonic Teenage Warhead” was a teenage student in Emma Frost’s telepathy class in Genosha. During a tutoring session, Ellie informed Emma Frost of the same nightmares she had 50 times the previous night when everyone in Genosha died. Instantly after she reported this to Miss Frost, Cassandra Nova’s Sentinels appeared and wiped out all of Genosha. Emma Frost, who survived the attack thanks to her secondary mutation, carried Ellie’s dead body and said that she will be a credit to her family and the mutant race. Emma then ordered members of the rescue team to bring the girl back to life, but they stated that she had been dead for hours.
Recently, Ellie Phimister appeared to be alive and part of the Hellfire Club’s new Inner Circle. However, it was revealed that the new Inner Circle was only projections from Emma Frost’s mind due to extreme survivor’s guilt. Recently, the true Ellie was revived with an alien techno organic virus, only to be sacrificed to Selene.
