Sophie Turner’s ‘Dark Phoenix’ Features Cameo By Iconic ‘X-Men’ Character

Dark Phoenix X-Men Sophie Turner HBO NOW

20th Century Fox’s Dark Phoenix movie with Sophie Turner featured an X-Men character that slipped by unnoticed.

Sophie Turner’s Dark Phoenix was Fox’s final X-Men movie with the core team, but it didn’t quite stick the landing and ended up being the lowest-grossing entry in the series. But that doesn’t mean there weren’t some redeeming factors hidden away from the main X-Men team. A new cameo was recently uncovered that even long-time X-Men comic book fans might’ve missed. Since the focus was so heavily on Sophie Turner and the Dark Phoenix debacle, it’s unsurprising that this X-Men cameo slipped under the radar.

The X-Men character in question is none other than Quentin Quire. The pink haired, rebellious member of the X-Men is also known as Kid Omega, since he has Omega Level telepathic powers, nearly the same rating as Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey in Dark Phoenix. Kid Omega is known for branching off from the X-Men, even rioting at Professor X’s teaching methods in the comics. With his telepathic abilities, it’s a shame we didn’t get to see anything like that in the Fox movies, as a fight between Sophie Turner’s Jean Grey and Kid Omega could have been something special. Check out the cameo below.

Written and directed by Simon Kinberg, Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Here’s the official synopsis for the movie:

This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.
