Magik Armors Up In First Clip From The New Mutants

Within The New Mutants comics, Illyana Rasputin was more than just Colossus’ little sister. She spent half of her life trapped in Limbo, a dimension ruled by demons. That’s why she became a demon sorcereress. Part of Illyana’s ongoing corruption gave her magical armor and a sword forged from her own soul. Now, IGN has debuted the first clip from The New Mutants film, Anya Taylor-Joy’s Illyana demonstrates some of the powers of her comic book counterpart. She also armors up and manifests her Soul Sword as she goes to face the Demon Bear.

As Rahne Sinclair (Maisie Williams) points out in the clip, the Demon Bear is stalking Danielle Moonstar (Blu Hunt) because it’s a manifestation of her greatest fear. It is magic, but so is Illyana. More specifically, her codename is Magik, and she’s proud of it.
