interesting fight. goes to midnighter

Fantomex's vague misdirection power always makes me wary when assigning the win to his opponent in a fight. I'd like to see them in a comic together but I don't know if them being against each other or teamed up would be more entertaining.

He's a byproduct of the Weapon X program. While Wolverine was Weapon X (Weapon 10), Fantomex is Weapon XIII (13), an upgrade to the "perfect" soldier, if you will. He is a fairly competent hand to hand combatant (but, his showings exclusively on that aspect are not at such high degree as illustrated in the handbooks, where he is listed as being class 6), he is extremely agile, and proficient in the use of hand guns, often pulling difficult shots from unlikely angles, can read body language (he once deduced Jean Grey was attracted to him by the tilt of her pelvis), has an external, artifical nervous system, named E.V.A, which he can call to his aid, if need be, and most importantly, he has a unique "hypnotizing" ability, which has enabled him to fabricate complicated illusions that completely fooled both Professor X, and Jean Grey at the same time.

Well, I'm not really sure how his 'misdirection' works. Can Midnighter see past it?

@Morpheus_: Damn. Kudos to his ability to find out that Jean was into him, though. LOL.

Not only that. She let him escape, as well.
 




All in all, Fantomex is an extremely fun character to read.

He can also enter state of auto-hypnosis (he used it to operate on himself), but that doesn't really have much to do with the battle, unless he needs surgery after Midnighter is done with him. :P

No idea how his battle computer would respond to Fantomex's illusions. Buckshot himself seems to be in doubt.

Probably midnighter, midnighter's combat computer alerts him to the thoughts of his opponents and their powers etc im sure he will be able to handle him, not to mention his speed.

Could Midnighter CPU with stand the BS Misdirection that Fantomex has shown? Thats the debate here. Fantomex Misderected Proffessor Xavier and Jean Gray at the same Time. As well as fooling a Celestial Ship (thats the highest tech can get) and Deathlock (whos also very advance CPU) so Tech dont seem to be safe from it.

Does his computer work in the same way as Midnighter's because Engineer already made him immune to mind intrusion and the sort.

Never said it was, doesn't cut down on it capabilities. it doesn't need to be telepathy to perform the things or work the way it does.

Tough fight. I don't know who wins. Midnighter always wins....but so does Fantomex. Hmmm....Fantomex can misdirect him but Midnighter can predict his movements.  
 
Midnighter will know that he will misdirect him sooooo.......Midnighter wins via Doors. Those doors......

And even if he was telepathically immune, it has already been established that his powers aren't telepathic. He has telepathic blocks in his mask and even he was affected by misdirection from his Deahtlok-self.

He did not. He stopped Midnighter's brain from receiving signals from the battle computer. He could not affect the computer itself.

I'm going with Fantomex cuz he knew Jean was into him by the tilt of her pelvis ... you just can't compete with that.

Beats me, though IIRC he was curious as to how good Midnighter was without the computer or something like that.

na, Midnighter has some resistance to TP and is a super strategist, that hypnosis ability of Fantomex's could be considered TP. All midnighter needs is one door or one head shot, fantomex isn't that durable.

in any case, one door right under Fantomex is all that Midnighter needs to win
