The Guardians of Galaxy 2: What role for Mantis (Pom Klementieff)?

Cinema 17 January, 2017

Mantis is one of the new members who will welcome the group of Peter Quill in Les Gardiens de la Galaxie 2. But what could be the role of this strange extraterrestrial?
Our Guardians are about to grow! As you now know, there are no less than three new members that the group of Peter Quill will welcome in his ranks. There are of course Yondu and Nebula, who should fight alongside the team after having played the antagonists in the first opus. Finally, especially with regard to Nebula. But above all, there Mantis (Pom Klementieff), we have seen in the trailer of the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 . And that one, she intrigues us a lot! It must be said that his character in comics has one of the most complex and mystical stories of the entire Marvel universe. Mi-Vietnamese, half-German, Mantis is indeed called the Celestial Madonna , was raised by the Kree Hall of Pama and for destiny … to give birth to the Messiah. Uh, what ? Yes, she is clearly a character apart! The strangest being that the father of the Messiah in question is supposed to be a Cotati, or a tree endowed with conscience (no, do not think of Groot!). So obviously, it is expected that the Mantis of the Galaxy Guardians 2 differs enough version of comics – at least we hope so. But then what could be the role of the character in the film in this case?
The first thing we can be sure is that Mantis possess in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 powers as impressive as those of comics release. We all remember this hyper disturbing scene in which she reveals ” the most secret secret ” ( dixit Drax) Peter Quill! Apparently, the superheroin is able to feel the emotions of those she touches, which can be as useful as it is frustrating to the group. Finally, for us, this scene especially convinced us that we would love Mantis! We also of course she hopes to be as good at martial arts and combat the Mantis paper version , became an accomplished warrior with his training in Kree. It remains to be seen where she comes from, who she is and what position she will occupy in the group. And on this subject, we already have some clues. It is already clear that the superheroin is not human but, on the contrary, it has alien origins. So, we come to think that Mantis is linked in one way or another to Ego (Kurt Russell), the father of Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 .
Moreover, Pom Klementieff seems to have suggested that his character and that of Kurt Russell shared some connection . She has said once the site Entertainment Weekly: ” I arrive in the film along with the character of Kurt Russell I spent my life with him and then I meet the Guardians. ..” And then, suddenly, we think that Mantis may play the intermediaries between Ego and the group of Star Lord. For, if one reflects on it well, Ego is a living planet, which sometimes takes on a human appearance. So who tells us that Mantis has not just grown on the surface of the planet and that, given her powers, she is able to convey her thoughts? It is true that it would be a bit strange but Ego has sheltered for a while a people of extraterrestrials in the comics. Why would not he do it in the film? What one can not be sure in any case is that Mantis and Ego share a common past. And maybe the superhero Star-Lord help his father and to better understand . Anyway, Mantis, like Ayesha, the alleged evil of the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 , remains yet very mysterious! In your opinion, what will Mantis do in the film?
