Pre-52 Despero is the most powerful of anyone listed so far and then even he was no match for Starro the conqueror, the most powerful is probaly some one shot character and the same probably applies to Marvel.

most powerful telepaths in DC are

brainwave snr

Ultra humanite

Despero

Martian Manhunter

Manchester Black

Brainwave Jnr ( he has more raw power than his old man after his dad gifted him his power when he died but no where near the control, so where Snr has telepathically commanded Spectre to do his will jnr has no where near rhose showings. he doesnhave better attack feats than MM but his defense is a joke)

Maxima

I wouldn't put them at the top, but I want to give a shoutout to Grodd and Brainiac.

@beatboks1:

Would Jemm and Saturn Girl also be in this mix (as I suppose people like Highfather, Ganthet, and/or Darkseid are probably off limits)?

I wonder how powerful Braniac would be if he were a telapath.

I believe Maxwell Lord deserves some mention. What with, mind wiping all of DC Earth and what not.

@sheryin1: Not a battle, so I moved it to the DC board in case you can't find it.

Pretty sure he was boosted for that.

@heraldofganthet: yeah they would. since Ultra Humanite has TP defeated MM, Jemm, Grodd, and Hector Hammond he would be above them ( obviously) and since Brainwave was shown as his equal in TP and to my knowledge is the only one in DC who has a feat ( unamped) of telepathically making the whole world see what he wanted them too I can't think of anyone above him ( plus the only other TP feat against spectre was by MM and that was just reading him where BW actually made him go away to fight something else so he wouldn't have to fight him plus has made TP projections that actually fought Spectre)

1. Starro

2. Despero

3. Martian Manhunter

4. Darkseid (sometimes)

5. Grodd

6. Dr. Psycho

7. Mr. Mind

8. Hecter Hammond

9. Manchester Black

10. Psimon

11. Saturn Girl

12. Composite Superman

Dr. Psycho is a pretty middling telepath. He doesn't deserve to be mentioned alongside Hammond or Saturn Girl.

Martian Manhunter, Despero, Starro, Miss Martian, Hector Hammond, and maybe Maxwell Lord but I don't think he's that powerful.

WTF?!! Darkseid isn't a telepath. Neither is Brainiac. And I'm pretty sure Ultra-Humanite is just a mad scientist who likes to transplant his brain into various bodies, so not a telepath. I don't know who Composite Superman is either. Everyone else mentioned so far, I agree is a telepath. Not all of whom are ones I remembered. Let me see if I can think of any others that have not been mentioned. Psycho-Pirate, the HIVE queen, Mento (Steve Dayton). DC does have lots and lots of telepaths. But I'm pretty sure that Jim Starlin's run on Stormwatch established that Jenny Soul is the most powerful of all telepaths. However, the soft reboot to that series had been undone, meaning she does not exist anymore. I think.

Shout-out to Miss Martian.

No the guy who has TP assaulted others from another deminsion, mind controlled half a dozen heroes from Limbo, TP communicated with himself 4 decades into the future, TP battles the Brainwave, TP defeated the combined mental power of Jemm' - Martian Manhunter - Godd - Hector Hammond and others, amongst other things isn't a TPer is he.

Also Darksied in LoSH TP battled Saturn Girl and Brainiac input his intelligence into Milton Fine who was a telepath. Suggest you do some research in future.

Martian manhunter and despero. Is grodd a telepath ? I forget

#32 Posted by Sir_Redhood (46 posts) - - Show Bio

Definitely Manchester Black and Martian Manhunter. For proof, take a look at Superman Unbound, the movie. Manchester Black had serious powers there. Also, New 52 Martian Manhunter simply cannot be denied. A shout out goes to Despero though... In Batman the Brave and the Bold, he freaking took control of almost the whole planet earth.

In no particular order:

  • Martian Manhunter
  • Miss Martian
  • Despero
  • Darkseid
  • Gorilla Grodd
  • Psimon
  • Manchester Black (and his sister)
  • Hector Hammond
  • Guardians of Oa
  • Maxima
  • Saturn Girl

The near-omnipotents (and possibly illegal)

  • The Spectre
  • Trigon
  • Mageddon
  • Eclipso

I always though Despero was on Martian Manhunter level if not greater then him, I mean he's beaten him a couple of times
