Marvel's mutants are by far the worst case here but even Marvel as a whole has far far far too many. DC as far as I know only has a few who's power is specifically reality warping but they have had plenty of events where some weapon was used to reality warp. Now I have no problem with cosmics, abstracts and God level beings having reality changing powers but humans and mutants should not have so much power.
Too many reality warpers in comics!

You do realize that most of the people you list are cosmic beings and Gods, right? I only know 4 people that are reality warpers: Scarlet Witch is one example. She's a mutant who changed the entire landscape of the world during HOM. Wiccan is her son. What do you expect? Mad Jim Jasper is a human who has reality warp power. Franklin Richards is the second example of another humans who have reality warping power. Basically there are 2 mutants and 2 humans who have reality warping power. It's not that much. DC also is guilty of giving PIS powers to their characters like Flash and Zoom who can circle Earth many times in several seconds. It's almost impossible to fight them.
Yeah I know who most of these are. I could probably name a few others but I just used a wiki list to save time. I'm talking more from a writers perspective, I guess. Marvel has a very unorganized hierarchy when it comes to the lesser known abstracts and Gods which I feel hurts the impact of the power being used. Also you would think that reality warping couldn't affect other reality warpers as shown at the higher levels but earth bound reality warpers often affect other warpers.. See I just think Marvel should down grade or retcon a few of them is all.
Basically there are 2 mutants and 2 humans who have reality warping power. It's not that much.
Hardly. There's also Legion, Proteus, Jamie Braddock, Genis-Vell (he's not human but the average member of his race is just as powerless as the average human), Magician (from the Ultimate universe), Molecule Man and Atleza off the top of my head. Marvel does have a lot more reality warpers than other companies.
"While I do like the idea of Franklin Richards being an Omega level mutant, I really don't think he should be anywhere near the power levels he is hinted at having/or will have." Exactly, Franklin is the next Galactus or whatever which is fine but what I'm trying to point out is that those all powerful beings such as Galactus do not seem nearly as powerful when you consider the fact that someone like Legion can warp reality in the same way they can. As it is every cosmic god, abstract, demon, elder god, can warp reality and then you add mutants and random others like Mad Jim to the list and it starts to add up. It's just my opinion that certain powers should be strictly held by only the very highest powered beings.
