10 is way too much. Transonic, Anole, Match, Gentle and Quentin Quire are more than enough.

I think they hinted at this in "Thor: The Dark World", where Jane Foster understood some of the techniques that were behind the magical healing process better than the Asgardians did. "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."
I hate that. I really do. To say something like magic is "unbelievable" and then make films featuring dudes that throw shields like boomerangs and guys who turn into giant green monsters while fighting aliens is ridiculous. F*ck you Marvel.
To be fair to him, based on the context of the article, he used "unbelievable" to imply that anyone seeing it would think it was miraculous and nigh impossible. It doesn't actually appear that Kevin Feige is saying that 'magic' doesn't exist in the MCU...just that it involves the manipulation of reality in a way that doesn't involve genetics, mutations or some easily understood basis for what we see as superhuman abilities. It seems to me that he is referring to the type of 'magic' that is in "Lord of the Rings" or "Call of Cthulhu" (funny comparing those two in one sentence lol), in which it has more to do with manipulation of the fabric of what some see as reality, knowledge of the unseen and the spirit. I recall a specific "Cthulhu" story in which a 'witch' learned how to travel through time and space to other planets, but this was accomplished through her understanding of geometry - she would learn how to build places with very weird angles that could become gateways if certain steps were performed.
Most of what most fantasy readers and D&D players conceive of as magic involves lightning bolts, fireballs and gross manifestations of energy, whereas Dr. Strange, while he could do those things, often used powers that bent reality, time and space, forces and metaphysics to his will.
In X-men TAS, Apocalypse was shown as a psychic and far more powerful than Jean Grey, and more powerful than Professor X.
X-Men TAS isn't canon. And TBQH, Apocalypse is one of the villains who has a long list of abilities to make him seem more formidable, but there has never been any confirmation (or even suggestion) in the comics that Apocalypse is anywhere near an Omega level telepath. Characters can be taught how to defend themselves from telepathic probing and attack; you don't need telepathy of a high level to do either - all the X-Men in the '60s-'80s era were taught this, Storm, Wolverine and Sabretooth are especially resistant to telepathic probing even though none of them have the telepathic ability to fight back against psionic assaults (i.e. psi-blasts, psionic bolts, etc.).
TK, but the power level and experience of the telekinetic comes into play here. There are weaker, less powerful telekinetics who can barely lift a person, and more powerful ones, such as Rachel, that can level mountains with their TK.
We generally see more physical strength feats because there are more superhumans with enhanced strength and muscular development, plus it's easier to develop that powerset via special weight machines designed to increase poundage and etc.
