Magik in New Mutants
New Mutants will come out on August 2, 2019 by 20th Century Fox directed by Josh Boone. This movie will be different than those superheroes movie because it will be a horror movie. New Mutants is about 5 young mutants discovering their powers and saving themselves.
The five new mutants are Magik, Cannonball, Mirage, Wolfsbane and Sunspot. This post will talk about Magik. Read my future blogs for the others.
Anya Taylor-Joy will play the character of Magik (Illyana Rasputin), a Russian mutant who has the ability to teleport. She is the sister of Colossus, a member of the X-Men family, seen in Deadpool and Deadpool 2. Anya is famous for her role in Split (2016).
Illyana Rasputin first appeared in Giant Sized X-Men #1 (May 1975) created by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum. Magik first appeared in New Mutants #14 (April 1984) created by Chris Claremont and Sal Buscema.
A recent copy of Giant Sized X-Men #1 CGC 9.8 sold for $9,369.99. This is a great book in any condition to buy because it is also the first appearance of new X-Men (Sunfire, Banshee, Wolverine, Storm, Colossus, Thunderbird and Nightcrawler).
