who is the strongest male mutant these days. Strength can be measured in so many ways, physical, energy manipulation, durability. In a battle royal for the title of top dog in the X-men who is the man that you think would come out on top?
Who is the Strongest Mutant Male
I would say Mags since he is strong, smart with his powers, not weak minded and has control. Iceman is strong but is incompetent and weak willed. Legion is crazed and out of control. Darwin has no control. Although Iceman and Darwin are nearly impossible to kill.
Iceman has limitless power, Magneto does not.
Legion has an ever changing powerset that would make him very hard to counter
Darwin because he body can adapt to any powerset even magneto's
Magneto is not an Omega, he doesn't have limitless powers, and a lot of his most powerful feats take great strength and concentration to pull off. Also there is a lot of PIS, and some WIS in magneto's favor after doing some research on him, a lot of his greatests he didn't even do with his own power, or shouldn't even have been possible to begin with. For instance giving phoenix a stroke with an EMP. If the phoenix can and has been in the Sun, the Sun EM field and greater than anything Magneto could pull off on earth. Also an EMP wouldn't give someone a stroke, it would shut off their brain for a bit. But the phoenix force should have been able to boot it right back up. That's one of many instances. He's powerful but not as powerful as a lot people think.
I can't say I've ever really seen any of the 3 listed that had that problem, except Darwin against the Hulk where he couldn't adapt fast enough.
Magneto is in fact an Omega, where do you get your information? He IS ONE OF THER MOST POWERFUL MUTANTS EVER!!!!!
Iceman is a bafoon, even if he could he wouldn't know how.....
Darwin, again never would happen.
Legion was taken down by the New Mutants, so yeah really a bad a$$.
they are random but they fit the situation, the same can not be said for Magneto.
The Fact that legion could manifest any powerset to also suit the given situation makes him very unpredictable and also very powerful. Yes he has to find a personality to do that. If he manifest reality warping or time manipulation power magneto can not counter those.
Bobby can also change his make up on an atomic level. Even if mags could pull that off, Bobby would be able to pull himself together. There is no real way Magneto could get him permanently out of the fight, especially after trying to pull of that feat, that would leave him extremely exhaust and put him out of the fight as well.
I would say you have to include Franklin Richards and Proteus. Franklin is an Omega.
Also, Legion is an Omega. Power is not the issue with him. It all depends on who is in control.
If this is about Raw power, these two should be at the top of the list
@mww1982: When was Magneto confirmed as an Omega? Been out of the loop. So, I wasn't aware.
Like I said Legion just absorbed a bunch of powers from mutants who died in close proximity to him, he has thousands of abilities but they are not limitless and he cannot just manifest whatever he wants. EM manipulation is a very versatile power.
Darwin is random and his powers are rarely offensive, they tend towards defense.
Iceman only has molecular control, he does not have atomic control unlike Magneto who has subatomic control.
" ...after trying to pull of that feat, that would leave him extremely exhaust and put him out of the fight as well. "
This pretty much shows Magneto isn't an Omega. Mags has been doing this mutant thing for years. If he hasn't accessed his potential yet...
Definition from CVs mutant page: Omega-Level Mutants are now known as mutants with potential for immeasurable power.
Magneto is powerful. However, most of his biggest feats either burnt him out or relied on some machine or other mutant.
Wow I agree with most people and say folks like Mags, Namor, and Colossus but really why is no one bringing up Gentle............he is literally so strong his body bend Vibranium easily........kind of surprised no one mentioned him in a debate about strongest mutants.........o well lol
No i just know more about magneto than you.
" @blacharrt: I am assuming now that you have never read a single x-men comic ever...... "
@skaddix they have manifest whenever the personalities decided to take control. Current Legion has to just think of the personality and the power to manifest it. The Problem comes from trying to counter a power that can change rapidly, ala The second coming ending when they called legion in because the Sentinels were adapting too fast. Hope did pretty much the same thing as him but on a more powerful scale. Magneto trying to fight Legion solo would be pretty much the same outcome if Magneto had fought Proteus solo, he would have lost.
As far as Darwin yes they are defensive but he can use that to his advantage, to win the fight. The problem is that control over the EM fields he would adapt to, he can and has changed his body countless times so magneto wouldn't be able to take him out. For Instance since he can control the EM spectrum to a varied degree all Darwin's body has to do is the change to a different form of Energy, say Anti-matter or Dark Matter etc you get the idea. Any of Which would cause Magnus some serious problems.
Iceman can change from solid, liquid, and gas instantly and can maintain his consciousness in all forms. . He can even change into air, and still use his powers. Magneto can not detect wind currents he can detect, disruptions in magneto fields, and different energy sources. Bobby's body has no material that Magneto could easily or naturally manipulate He has no way to find bobby once he turned into air, nor does he have a way to counter it. Magneto needs to breathe his force field let's in air, and can it in, his body needs oxygen and water, moisture in this case is his enemy. You also have to consider the fact that again feat such that this one would take a great deal of concentration and would be taxing on his physically and mentally. Like the incident when magneto made a comb out of metal and other materials it was completely taxing on him. Or when he helped repair Colossus's armor skin, he was completely wiped out.
Is Franklin and actual X-men now?? I didn't even know he was on the roster.
" But Magneto isn't classed as omega, he's just very powerful and very experienced, he's up for the title. But surely it's Apocalypse for the win? "apocalypse is a prime contender. however, i think it depends on how we measure it. if it is any confrontational setting, it would be omega or mimic. if mimic or omega get a second near hope they win too. if its just each mutant in a secluded room fighting artificial gravity at increasing powers, i think the one who would last longest is legion, if he can manifest a good power (does this thread include mental weaknesses). i also want to mention proteus, who can possess a bunch of supers at once.
" @The Dark Huntress: he'd still be classified , like spider man, hulk, even though they were not born a mutant get it right yo "Mutants are born that way:
Storm, The Summers Brothers, Iceman, Firestar...
Mutates are mutated after birth:
Spider man, The Fantastic Four, Hulk...
" @The Dark Huntress: Not really, i didn't say "of all time" in the title. This is an x-men forum i would have thought that the thread would be about the x-men. "No, but you said mutants. Not X-Men. And there are numerous threads in this forum that discuss things that do not pertain only to the X-Men. So yes, the title is somewhat misleading.
