Domino is a mutant with the ability to subliminally and psionically initiate random telekinetic acts that affect probability in her favor by making improbable (but not impossible) things to occur within her line of sight, thus causing her to have "good luck" and her opponents to have "bad luck." This phenomenon can be anything from an enemy's equipment failure to hitting just the right switch with a stray shot to shut down an overloading nuclear reactor.
This unconsciously controlled talent is triggered when she is in a stressful situation (such as fighting or escaping). This effect constantly emanates from her body at all times and is completely subconscious. However, it is also largely participatory - in order for the luck to take effect, Domino herself must engage in an action whose chance she can affect.
For example, if debris falling from the sky was about to hit her in the head, she would still be hurt if she stood still. However, if she tried to avoid them, she would move perfectly to avoid each and every piece about to hit her. In addition if Domino where to stand before a hail of bullets she would be a bullet-ridden corpse. Instead, she must take action, attempting to avoid the gunfire and will miraculously bob and weave just perfectly to avoid every single shot. As a byproduct of her probability abilities, Domino's cerebral cortex emits a current of bioelectric pulses down her spine to instinctively guide her movements during such situations, which has the added effect of augmenting her natural reflexes and agility to near-superhuman levels.
Although Domino cannot consciously control her ability, she can activate it by putting herself in a position in which she could be harmed. The full extent of her powers is still unknown.
Domino is extensively trained in various armed and unarmed combat techniques, as well as in covert operations. She is a superb marskwoman, athlete, and swimmer, and is adept in the use of explosives.

Neena was one of many children born to the U.S. government’s “Project Armageddon,” designed to genetically engineer the perfect weapon using a precognitive mutant named Beatrice. One of only two survivors from numerous attempts, Neena was stolen away by Beatrice’s cult, the Armajesuits, and delivered to a Chicago priest, remaining in his care until her own mutant powers manifested.
Neena forged a distinguished career in many fields of covert activity, both as an agent of various organizations and governments, and as a freelance mercenary. Early on Domino was assigned to bodyguard Milo Thurman - a prodigy in predicting world events. She and Thurman fell in love and eventually married, and he coined her nickname “Domino.” Their relationship was short-lived, however, as a raid by A.I.M. forced Thurman into even deeper government cover, and his superiors told him that Domino had been killed. Domino joined the mercenary Six Pack, meeting Cable and forging a lasting and often intimate friendship. Domino was once captured by the arms dealer Tolliver, secretly Cable’s estranged son Tyler, who had one of his agents impersonate Domino in Cable’s new strike-team X-Force. Cable ultimately freed her and she came to aid him in his role as X-Force’s leader.
Later, Milo was captured by Donald Pierce and his cyborg Reavers. Pierce intended to siphon away Thurman’s prophetic abilities, and managed to gain some of it before Domino arrived to rescue Thurman. Domino defeated the Reavers but was unable to save Thurman in time from the fatal effects of Pierce’s information transfer process. Domino eventually sought to find out more about her past, and discovered Project Armageddon was still active. Infiltrating the base, Domino was shocked to discover that she had a younger brother, Lazarus. Soon after, the Armajesuits arrived to kill Lazarus to prevent his mutant ability of controlling emotions from being used to destroy civilization. Domino defeated the Armajesuits and took Lazarus to the same priest that had cared for her as a child. After aiding Cable in an underground resistance that opposed the Neverland mutant death camp, Domino helped re-form X-Force.
