It seems that we’ll all be rolling 7’s soon with Marvel’s announcement on Friday that comic book writer Gail Simone is returning to write an upcoming “Domino” series.

From Marvel:

“When Domino finds herself on the wrong side of the mercenary community, the favorite femme fatale has to fight back and, somehow, stay alive. Hunted by her enemies, a danger to her friends, and chased by the man who hates her more than anything, Domino will be up against the odds—but that’s never stopped her before.”

Simone worked for Marvel in the early 2000’s, writing Deadpool and bringing back the now-famous fourth-wall breaks. She left in 2003, writing primarily for DC comics, including runs on Birds of PreySecret Six, Wonder Woman, and Batgirl.

Domino was created by Fabian Nicieza and artist Rob Liefeld, making her first major appearance in X-Force. She is known for her ability to affect probability.

“My favorite characters are always the unpredictable ones, and with Domino, you literally never know which way the dice are going to roll,” explains Simone. “I love her, and I can’t wait to show her best bad side!” – Gail Simone

Zazie Beetz (Atlanta) is set to portray Domino in the upcoming Deadpool 2.

  “Domino will continue to be one of the breakout stars of WEAPON X, but fans have been clamoring to see her get the spotlight for some time now…well, your wish has been granted!” – Chris Robinson

DOMINO #1 is set to drop on April 11, with a cover by Greg Land Frank’Darmata.
