Overpowered Peter on Comicvine.com

#1 Posted by Griphus (1 posts) - - Show Bio

Hey People!!!

I was surfing Comicvine when I noticed Peter Pretelli's profile and I saw something a litle bit curious.

Peter is topping a lot of ranks here at Comicvine and I just think that a lot of people are superestimating him.

Of course he has praticaly infinite potential but putting him 6 ranks above Professor X on the Telepathy rank??

On the TV show he can barely read minds(actually he was tricked by Adam Monroe to help him in his attempt to free a humanity-destroying virus, any decent telepath would have discovered that!!)

And that's not just it.Since when he is more invunerable than Superman?!?Or tops the Phoenix on Immortality, or Wolverine (Wolverine!!!) on Agility!!And could someone explain what kind of Super Sight he has to be #2 at it?

I really like Peter and I LOVE Heroes, but people are starting to confuse potential with actual power.

I would really like to see what you guys think about this.

The rankings are based on fan votes and fanboys tends to vote on their favorites instead of the best.

That being why Jean is #2 and Storm #4 on the overall rankings. Many fanboys.

Stopped looking at ranks a long time ago, but Storm at #4? I knew her fanboys were crazy, but c'mon!

Storm is really powerful able to singlehandly defeat a herald of Galactus with a lightning bolt. And Jean is an Omega-level mutant without the Phoenix Force so with the Phoenix Force makes Jean virtually a goddess. I may sound like a fanboy but that's the truth.

Peter shouldn't be topping some rankings. He can barely control most of his powers. He doesn't even have super sight so how is he going to be #2 out of a whole bunch.

But you guys are right about the rankings and stuff.

Phoenix I can see near the top (still not as high is she is though) but Storm? No way. There are a number of characters more powerful than her even before you get into cosmics, abstracts and characters in universes other than Marvel's. I've long grown tired of this Storm insanity. This isn't a Storm thread though so I'll drop it.

"Storm yadda yadda...."

There are more than 100 comic characters that are more powerful than Storm or Phoenix. Storm doesn't belong on the top 100 list. Maybe Jean with the Phoenix, but i consider them separate.

Jean is not an Omega Level Mutant (without the Phoenix).  And Storm should not be able to harm any of the Heralds (unless they were extremely weakened before).

Jean is Omega without PF.

Well i can see both Sylar & Peter Petrelli (with his original ability) high up on the rank

Simply because i find the Empathic mimicry ability to be one of the most dangerous, espeacialy original peter as he was not shown to have limits to how many he could have, being able to take other people's abilities randomly just by being near them is a very powerful ability, and could potentialy make someone god-like when they become intune with using those abilities.......peter started out just barely flying, but his impressive ability jumped him to being one of the most powerful beings on Heroes, sylars too

I agree though storm fanboys are crazy rofl........anyone with the title as 'One of the most powerful mutants in the MU' should be close to the top and cosmic beings should be above that, as bad as storm fanboys are, superman fanboys are worst, he should not be #1 lol

yeah he was terrible at reading minds. like a 2 on a scale of 1 to 5

he was a much faster and more versatile flier than angel considering his power source was internal and not avian in nature
