Since I have seen no official confirmation for it, I would have to say no.

Neither Stryfe nor Apocalypse are Omega either.

All it takes is an on panel confirmation.

 It is known that stryfe is the most powerful mutent ever,but in the same storyline he gets wrecked by apocalypse.if you are the most powerful mutant ever than clearly you are omega level or beyond omega level.

Sir are you high?  Stryfe is not the strongest mutant ever.  MJJ, Phoenix, Xman, Meggan just to name a few 
 
 
This is the best evidence I can find that he's omega.  Its strange that Iceman is consider omega but not Magneto

This is the closest that Magneto has come to Omega status; by the way:

Really I have no idea.  Hope I think is the strongest on Earth.  Although I wonder how she would fair against Xman

Jezz, Magneto cant catch a break.  he has done things that should put him as omega but yet is still Alpha.  He litterally has his hand on the doorknob to become omega

who invented the Omega mutant term 
I would punch them in the neck 
who cares??????? 
it's trivial and beyond meaningless 
how about we make up a new word 
for someone cool enough to be omega but who still isn't 
......Magneto is now an ULTRA-mutant-supreme!!!!!
#19 Posted by daak1212 (7901 posts) - - Show Bio

So wait let me get this straight.  Im not even close to being all knowing about Xmen but Omega mutant as I thought is a mutant with immense power that is limitless.  Prof. X who is a driving force in the mutant community or atleast was said that Magneto is limitless.  Magneto even has feats that should have him as Omega, but yet isnt.  Some mutants who are Omega such as Bobby have yet to impress me with actual powerful feats (beating Oblivion does not count at all).  As Shadowdoggy said the person who coined Omega Mutant should be punched in the neck for not eveing having actaul borders on what counts as limitless.

@daak1212: Omega mutants do tend to be powerful, yes, but more often, it seems that their potential for control over whatever sort of power they have is the deciding factor in whether or not they are Omega. Magneto (and really, anyone who can control electromagnetism) is for all intents and purposes unlimited in terms of what he can do, simply because of how fundamentally interwoven with existence the thing he has power over is. It doesn't matter if he's Omega or not, really. Now, is his control over electromagnetism as high as it could be? I don't know.
#21 Posted by CosmicGod432 (177 posts) - - Show Bio

I believe that he is not and i dont remember any time that he was referred or mentioned to be one.

#22 Posted by daak1212 (7901 posts) - - Show Bio

I think I might have an issue where they said he was omega although Im not sure and probably wont check into it.  Its X-Men 1 with the initial introduction of Fabian Cortez.
#23 Posted by daak1212 (7901 posts) - - Show Bio

I found something interesting.  In " The Twelve" the twelve were omega mutants.  Gambit was also I think because at the time didnt he have the brain stimulation or something?  Also as I said Magneto fits into the catagory of Omega but has yet to be said as Omega (maybe he has I'm not sure)

Magneto is fully able to control of his powers. He can be contained easily. A fully plastic prison and he can’t break out using his powers. He still has high connections to still make himself still a threat.  They have produced plastic sentinels to fight him. He not omega but he is still very dangerous.

HE should be...based on feats.

#27 Posted by THUNDERBOLT30 (10505 posts) - - Show Bio

He has the feats to support him being omega level, more so than characters who have aready been confimed, but he is still alpha level to my knowledge.

since " Some abilities depicted by mutants described as Omega-level include immortality, extreme manipulation of matter and energy, high psionic ability, strong telekinesis, and the potential to exist beyond the boundaries of the known physical universe"  and magneto's force field can even withstood a blast from silver surfer plus he teared up appocalypse then he is a totally strong alpha level muntant...  Why? ahmmmm because marvel didn't say he is omega-level muntant. anyway he is not immortal, and the use of his powers relies to his physical condition. and i'm not even sure if he ever demonstrated manipulating matter using only his powers

yes hes a extremely powerful alpha but just like storm they lack the requirments to be omega plus they have shown there limits

Just because you're powerful, really really powerful, doesn't make you Omega. I've said it before but when Magneto turns into magnetism or uses it to travel through time or something then he'll be Omega.

actually now I think of it, I remember seeing dazzler being omega mutant at marvel database, never saw on panel evidence of her being omega level. but her power base could make her potentially be one

CC I think was thinking about making Ali an Omega, but that plot was dropped for the time, and is now a loose end that probably won't be picked up on. Mike Carey should probably write the rules of what constitutes an Omega, because most X-Writers don't seem to know, and if they don't know, there fans basically get to contradict each other with semantics. Magneto could be written as one, and hinted at being similar to those considered as one, under some definitions and explanations of what one is, but I think its better of he isn't.

That really isn't accurate. I remember I saw Cyclops, Storm, Magneto, and even Pixie.

This is completely non-canon, but in the X-Men: The End Magneto "died", only we find out that he wasn't actually dead, he was simply existing as a being of pure energy. So the potential is most certainly there.

@The Dark Huntress:
  Indeed, that was a cool moment. Silly gripe though, it was canon, just canon to that reality, and not 616 or in 616 continuity. *Feels geeky*

Possibly. But if that's the case then Storm should have power equal to Phoenix by now...

No. I don't really care either way. 
 
If Marvel takes more than that from that story and Storm ends up a head in a chair.

Points to her post about X-Men: The End. And that's not necessarily a pre-requisite.  
 
@Son Of Storm: Ohhhhhhh. I remember that. And Wolvie was her caretaker. Sooooooooo sweet. Her fight with the Super-Skrull was completely badass.

What do you mean? The poster recalled seeing Dazzler listed as an Omega, do you doubt their accuracy and think they saw Dagger instead or something? lol It has no actual bearing on what gets actually written, confirmed, shown, suggested, and importantly intended. Storm was written, confirmed, shown, suggested and intended to have power equal to Phoenix? Thats quite a specific leap unless you were referring jokingly to our other conversation that time? lol In which case I am far too serious to appreciate jokes.
