Angel Dust is the secondary antagonist of the 2016 superhero comedy film Deadpool. She is a mutant created by the Weapon X program and the right hand of Ajax.
When Wade Wilson suddenly collapses one night and is diagnosed with multiple organ cancer, he reluctantly leaves his girlfriend Vanessa to undergo an experiment to cure his cancer. At the Weapon X facility, he meets the project's leader Ajax who introduces Wade to Angel. As the serum Wade is injected with needs adrenaline to cause the mutation, Ajax leaves Wade with Angel, who tortures him for days to ensure the mutation. After the mutation has successfully been caused, Ajax tells Angel to put Wade back into a chamber that drains the oxygen out of it, causing the inhabitant to slowly suffocate before pumping the oxygen back in. While Angel does so, Wade headbutts her, stealing a match from her in the process. Angrily, Angel tries to beat Wade but is stopped by Ajax, who tells her that they probably owed Wade that.
After Wade has become the masked Deadpool and is out for revenge, Ajax kidnaps Deadpool's ex-girlfriend Vanessa and tells Deadpool to meet him on a decommissioned aircraft carrier at a scrapyard. When Deadpool, accompanied by the X-Men Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead, arrives at the scrapyard, Ajax orders Angel to kill them. Angel jumps from the aircraft carrier. Deadpool tells her that she is far to masculine for him and that this is the reason he brought Colossus. Colossus then approaches Angel but she simply hits him, the force of the impact lunging him through the air. Deadpool then corrects himself, stating that it was the reason he brought Negasonic. Negasonic then attacks Angel with her destructive powers, knocking her back into a shipping container.
Deadpool then advances onto Ajax, while Angel fights Colossus and Negasonic. Eventually, Angel manages to overpower Colossus and uses a steel rope to strangle him. Witnessing this, Negasonic unleashes the full potential of her power, causing a giant firestorm which blasts Angel off Colossus. Later she is revealed to be still alive as she gets taken away from Colossus with Negasonic.
It is unknown what happened to Angel Dust afterwards, but thanks to her invulnerability, it's likely she that she is still alive.
- Although they never engaged in a battle against each other, Angel Dust is most likely more powerful than Deadpool in terms of hand-to-hand combat and physical strength, since she defeated Colossus in a fist fight, to the point where she almost killed him, while Colossus himself has shown he could easily take down Deadpool in a single attack, as he effortless backhanded the mercenary into a car, temporarily immobilizing him.
- When Gina Carano did the junkyard fight scene, she was more worried about spiders than anything else, even her stunts.
- In the comics, Angel Dust is a natural born mutant with the ability to activate her adrenaline levels to increase her physical prowess. She is also a teenager in the comics and a member of the Morlocks in Chicago.
- Despite that she is associated with Ajax, as well as being his possible love interest, given Ajax's heinous standards, he only viewed her more as his valuable asset and didn't showed any worry or sympathy whenever Angel's life is in danger, nor is he shown to have any affection towards her.
