- “Sounds like you have a dick in your mouth.”
- ―Blind Alsrc
Althea (also known as Blind Al) is a elderly blind woman and once shared a home with the mercenary, Wade Wilson.
While at a laundromat one day, Al ran into Wade Wilson, who was in the middle of removing bloodstains from his clothes. Eventually, Wade would move into Al's house while hunting down Ajax, the man responsible for disfiguring him. One day, after escaping Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Wade returned to Al's home to rest while the old woman assembled a cabinet that ultimately fell apart, causing her to complain about buying things from Craigslist. Later, after listening to Wade's fear of revealing himself to his lover, Vanessa Carlysle, Al encouraged the mercenary to reach out by stating that looks were only an aspect of love. After Vanessa was eventually kidnapped by Ajax, Wade, determined to rescue her, returned to Al's home and took all of the house's firearms, despite having to convince Al to hand over a pistol concealed in her sock. With that, the mercenary left the house after telling Al that there was "a stash of cocaine next to the cure for blindness".
To be added
Al is snarky, and tough, but has a good heart, for the most part. Though her and Wade trade insults, she does appear to genuinly care for him, acting as king of a mother figure to him and offering advice. She appears to be a former cocaine addict and it is implied that she started doing it again after Wade left her some before leaving to kill Ajax.
- In the comics, Blind Al is a Caucasian British woman. In the films however, she is an African-American.
