Cassidy's next appearance was when he broke into a fight with another prisoner over his pudding attracting the attention of several guards which prompted Russell to flee from the hall in order to make friends with Juggernaut.
Cassidy's final appearance was when Cable attacked the transfer truck from the Ice Box to a higher security prison, he laughed sadistically at the fight between Deadpool and Cable before being accidentally shot in the head by Cable, killing him.

|~ Black Tom Cassidy's confrontational nature.|
Cassidy was an antagonistic, sadistic, confrontational individual who would continuously bully and torment his co-prisoners. He was regarded as one of the toughest prisoners as a result of this. He particularly targeted Deadpool and Firefist however as he heard Deadpool was the toughest prisoner there and thought Firefist had sided with the wrong person.
Cassidy was a tall, muscular figure with long black dreadlocks, several tattoos and a goatee. He was always seen wearing a tank top and the traditional Ice Box prisoner trousers and restrictive collars.
- Cassidy was originally due to appear as the movie's main antagonist however his role was greatly reduced in favour of Firefist and Juggernaut as well as budget constraints.
- In the comics Black Tom Cassidy is the cousin of the mutant hero Banshee however in the movie universe the two have no relation with Banshee being born at least 30 years prior to Black Tom and losing his Irish heritage from the comics as opposed to Black Tom who retains his Irish heritage and was born in the late 1970s at the earliest.
