What powers do new mutants possess?
- Charlie Heaton Cuomo Cannon / Sam Guthrie
Guthrie worked in a coal mine, and during a deadly landslide, the young man’s powers came into play. As the name implies, the Heaton Cannon can propel itself through the air at high speed using natural thermochemical energy, and it is impractical to attack it in motion, turning Sam into a human cannonball.
- Maisie Williams Cuomo Wolfsbane / Rahne Sinclair
Wolfsbane hails from Scotland and has the power to change between human and wolf. The character originally appeared in the 1982 comic New Mutants as one of the founding members of the X-Men junior Group. Before Charles Xavier takes her, Sinclair has a bleak childhood under the auspices of the abusive Reverend Craig, who instills strict religious values into his daughter, then attempts to kill her when his strange abilities manifest.
- Anya Taylor Joy Cuomo Magic / Ileana Rasputin
Ileana Rasputin predates her co-stars, given her name dates back to the 1975 Giant-Size X-Men, but it wasn’t until December 1983 that she made it to the Magik-themed comics, when her famous connections were revealed: as the last name might suggest, she Colossus’ sister. In Limbo, the girl’s abilities include the ability to cast spells and she can also summon the Soul Sword of Limbo, who brings with her her own shield.
- Henry Zaga as Sunspot / Roberto Da Costa
Sunspot is able to absorb solar energy into its own body and use it as an energy source for a number of purposes including increasing strength, flying and energy blasts.

- Blue Hunt Como Mirage / Daniel Munstar
Mirage’s ability is to physically manifest a person’s fears and turn them into a real illusion. In the comics, visions are what brought the Bear Demon into contact with The New Mutants and this forces the team to destroy the threatening entity.
