John Wraith Teleports Into New ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ Character Profile

We’ve been getting to know the mutants of “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” the last few days via a series of character profiles, and today the teleporting mutant John Wraith (formerly known as “Kestrel” in the comics world) gets his time in the spotlight. Played by hip-hop musician Will.I.Am, Wraith isn’t fond of his powers or the experiences they’ve led him to have — much like his comic book counterpart.

“I’ve done some pretty awful things — the kind of things that haunt a man while he’s sleeping,” explains Wraith. “Most people think our powers are a gift, but if it were up to me, I’d hunt the devil down myself to give him this gift back.”
