Legion Respect Thread

#1 Edited by Saren (25229 posts) - - Show Bio

I've gone through this forum and there's no really comprehensive feats thread for Legion, which is a shame. He's one of my favorite characters. So I thought I'd make one, as I own practically every comic he's ever appeared in. The majority of his feats are here, but if I've missed something please feel free to upload it yourself if you have it or inform me and I'll upload it.

Name: David Charles Haller

Alias: Legion

Parents: Charles Xavier and Gabrielle Haller

Classification: Omega-Level Mutant

Ability: Possesses thousands of mutant abilities, ranging from telekinesis to cosmic-level reality warping. However, each power is controlled by a different personality, which may be either benevolent or malevolent. As such, Legion has thousands of different personalities at the moment.

The powers he's displayed and the feats associated with them are below:

Telepathy

Xavier uses his astral form to try and probe Legion's mind, but he just laughs and throws Xavier back into his body and out of the room.

Unleashes a storm of psychic energy that destroys Muir Island. Xavier and Co. need to wear special psi-suits to protect themselves from the energy.\

Shuts down Forge's mind.

Forces Magneto to relive the worst moments of his life.

After travelling back in time to kill Magneto, he is attacked by the X-Men. Iceman freezes every molecule of Legion's body, but he breaks out after releasing a psi-wave that knocks out Storm, Bishop, Psylocke and Iceman.

Attempts to kill Magneto with his psi-blade, but Xavier jumps in the middle and is killed instead. This causes the Age of Apocalypse.

Facing the rogue personality Chain, Xavier struggles to read his mind. However, Legion manipulates Chain's copies with ease.

Pulls Mystique into his mind, and then spits her out unconscious.

Telekinesis

Engages in an all-out, city-busting battle with Magneto. Legion uses his TK to beat up Magneto and render him incapable of fighting back.

While being thousands of miles away, he uses his TK to throw a sleeping Magneto out of his bedroom.

Blocks bullets.

While under the control of the Shadow King, he blocks a plasma cannon's attack and then freezes all the members of the X-Men and X-Force in place.

Magneto's attacks don't put the slightest dent in Legion's TK shield.

Pyrokinesis

Roasts Storm in mid-air.

Creates a nuclear-level blast that levels Muir Island.

Blows up a room in Muir Island.

Chars Nova.

Continued.

Space/Time Manipulation

First scan: travels 20 years back in time, pulling the X-Men along with him.

Second scan: throws Storm back into her own past.

Third scan: Teleports X-Factor away.

Reality Warping

Unleashed by Magik and Karma, Legion erases Limbo's Elder Gods from existence with a thought, and destroys the bloodstone amulet.

When Legion's personalities were being systematically destroyed by Dr. Nemesis, his mind created a psychic antibody in the form of another personality called Moira. A cosmic-level reality warper, Moira warped the entirety of 616 to create the Age of X, where Legion was loved and respected as a hero. Eventually, Rogue and Gambit discovered the truth about the new universe and alerted the X-Men. Moira attacked them. She was all-powerful within the universe she created, being omnipresent and able to control all the fundamental forces of that reality. She is ultimately defeated when Legion reabsorbs her into his psyche and uses her powers to restore 616 to normal.

AOX Aftermath:

Legion states that Moira had the power to juggle worlds like colored balls. When she warped the universe, Rachel Summers' mind was torn out of her body.

More personalities:

First scan: Johnny Gomorrah, a personality that can transmute objects and enemies into salt.

Second scan: Delphic, an omniscient personality that sees and knows all.

Time Sink

A personality that toys with the flow of time. He can fling attacks back into the past, accelerate them into the future, freeze time, alter his own speed, stop opponents in their tracks etc.

Chain

A living virus who turns anyone he touches into a duplicate of himself. The only way to defeat him is by finding the original Chain and getting rid of him.

Personalities from New Mutants Volume 3

These personalities were mostly unnamed, so I'll go over them one by one.

These personalities show super-strength, a sonic scream, the ability to transmute David's body and self-propelled flight.

These personalities show matter animation, X-ray vision, super-speed, heat absorption, power negation and lycanthropy with an accelerated healing factor.

That's it for now. I've left out some personalities. I'll upload them later if I have the time. Feel free to chip in.

Legion is a character that can pretty much do anything, if it is a power, he has a personality for that. He is like the Iphone of Mutants.

I wouldn't. Its like the app that has everything but never works to do what you want to. I mean, why would you want to take a look at the weather when you're trying to look for information on the stock Market?

Whatever happened to Legion's child-like attitude? He had that aspect from New Mutants but not in X-men Legacy. That aspect of him was cute.

It got fixed when his personalities were integrated into one at the start of Legion Quest. I assume the same thing applies to Legacy, since he received tech that gives him control over his mind and personas.

I think he could be if he got some kind of control over them all.

Magik and Emma Frost saw a future where Legion killed all the X-Men.

Don't exactly have to come true and plus I love Magik but she been in the slippery slope of evil, she could pushed him to do or be another of her 'trick' maybe he kill the X-Men to look like they were dead, like they did in the early 80s with the entire Adversary arc
