Banshee (Sean Cassidy) is a mutant who has the ability to create sonic sound waves from his voice.


X-Men: First ClassEdit

Banshee was seen hitting on a girl before he was confronted by Professor X and Magneto to join the X-Men. He met his teammates and saw Darwin die when the Hellfire Club came to recruit them to join the party. Banshee trained to become an X-Men after they encountered Sebastian Shaw. Professor X trained everyone as did Magneto. Magneto taught Banshee to fly by knowing he could do it and pushing him off the satellite dish. He was now well trained at his screaming and flying.

Banshee joined his teammates into fighting the Hellfire Club. He had an air battle with his former X-Men teammate Tempest. Magneto let out a speech to join his Brotherhood of Mutants, Banshee stayed with Professor X, as did Beast and Havok.

X-Men Origins: WolverineEdit

Banshee makes a brief cameo as a prisoner of William Stryker in his mutant testing facility on Three Mile Island. He, along with the rest of the incarcerated mutants (Emma and Cyclops), escape with the help of Professor X.
