Fox Traded Ego The Living Planet For A Change To Negasonic Teenage Warhead
Recently it was was revealed by Deadpool screenwriter Paul Wernick, Fox traded Ego the Living Planet , who will be appearing in the upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2”, for some alterations to Negasonic Teenage Warhead’s character in the Deadpool movie.
While in the movie, Negasonic Teenage Warhead had explosive kinetic powers, in the comics, she has psychic abilities. So in order to make this change, Fox reportely gave the rights for Ego back to Marvel.
Ego originally debuted in Thor #132 and appeared in many issues before appearing in the Fantastic Four comics, but was included in the original movie deal before Marvel was sold to Disney. Ego was one of “400 Marvel Characters” included in the Fox movie deal, however no official information on who is on that list has been made public.
