Okay. So she kills the avengers, pulls fake avengers out of her...feet, she warps all of reality, depowers 98% of the mutant population.....and she's still not listed as an omega level mutant! Come on, that's crap! Who agrees!?

So, I'm guessing you're talking about Scarlet Witch?

Exactly! Sorry. Why isn't she an omega?!

Because she doesn't have unlimited potential.

cause apparently omega class is poorly defined

because the term "omega level" is a stupid term and they should have never made any of the levels to begin with

Because when she said No-More-Mutants the word mutant got erased from the Marvel dictionary
 
She's now an Omega Level Avenger

I do not agree. I think they should have just made the definition completely clear instead.

I agree with Erik. I would also like to know what the clear definition of an omega level mutant is.

Because her power was not entirely her own.

Because Omega Level mutant is a flash word used often by writers to pander to fans who think they know of characters powers well and insist on knowledge that is often so fluid and flexible. There is no, nor has there ever been a well defined criteria for an omega level mutant and various writers have various understanding of the term. Fans want to much objective info and writers know not to do that to much (well, or they know it conflicts, contradicts with other writers) and there is not so much incentive for Marvel to enforce otherwise. Hmm that?

I know it is confusing. Omega potential means that your potential is without bounds, it should grow and grow even if your power level changes (wouldn't they have to) or if you tapped into an external source. Right? Potential after all is the ability to do. Not all potential is realized. Legion changes all reality, he is omega. The Scarlet Witch does the same thing for longer and depowers the mutant population and she is not?

@CitizenBane: Isn't that true for Jean Grey or Rachel as well. They tap into the Phoenix force.
