    He's got a neat 'illusion' thing going on because it clearly extended to other senses than sight, enough to effect touch (since he had a long-term girlfriend who had no idea he didn't look like a hot dude, but had a mutant appearance). Riffing off of that, if he made his hand *appear* to turn into a giant bone spear and rammed it into your gut, *you'd feel it.* (Bargain basement Psylocke-style psychic knife. Sure, it's not 'real,' but as the saying goes, 'Not real? Fool, the illusion of pain, *is pain.*') Skip the other telepathy nonsense, he could just branch out into more illusion stuff, mostly limited to close range and self-affecting stuff, and saving more advanced ranged stuff for the Mastermind girls.

    He's, like, seventy times more interesting than Quentin, IMO, and, bonus, has a built-in motivation to hate the twerp.
    Ha Yes! this would be an awesome backstory as to whats up with Him....and having him being an equal foil to QQ would give us the telepathic rivalry we got a taste of in the Emma Frost mini

    The M-twins we never saw do psychic attacks, mind control, etc. We've seen adult Monet control minds. Actually we've seen adult Monet use tk, which the M-twins never did.
    Not trying to derail the the thread but heres emma wondering how powerful "M" really is...

    Here she is being forced outta "M"s mind

    Im not really convinced M has Tk but heres the scene Synch is I think...snyching with the twins and using TK

It's probably why so many here are still calling for Synch or someone like him to be returned to prominence. Disappointment and dissatisfaction tend to do that.
    Ha I literally stopped reading comics after I read that issue....It was also around the time a lotta books got cancelled I moved but its funny coincidence

    "3 out of 5 members of this team are telepaths?"

    Ahem, did someone say power rarity/redundancy would be an issue with Synch??? Doesn't seem to be that big of a problem here.

    Couldn't resist pointing that out. Back to the normal conversation at hand.

    If she were merely flying super fast, she'd have flown through the cloud, which is not what is happening here. Rachel specifically says that they (Psylocke, herself and M) have to TK move the viruses so that they can group them for Storm to attack. She doesnt give M a seperate command bc she was counted with the TK prompt. Earlier in the series she TK blasts a car which is a bit more undeniable

    I always thought that was shockwave she created cause she was moving so fast? Doesn’t the earlier label mention her fluttering back and forth super quick or something?

    Second favorite Australian teleporter.

    Way before DoX, I’d imagined him, Shola, Bedlam and Sunspot being led by Bishop in a Crew-like book.

    Great design, Redundant powerset even though he is probably the most powerful one. So getting used in the X-men world is harder because Nightcrawler and Magik are around even Gateway Pixie,Blink, Lila Cheney are around as well. Plus like Magik he is kinda to good at his job. So unless they set clear weakness on him expect him to be not around or be knock out a lot in stories. They have used Gateway as Taxi in recent books, Honestly it would be better if it was Manifold at least ,he has the potential to be used in stories beyond being a taxi.

    He has an interesting power set but I haven't read enough of him to really know how I feel about the character.

    I'd want to see more of him using actual space manipulating shenanigans than just 'team bus' teleportaling people around. Make an enemy closer than he expected so that he's easier to hit. Distort space the other way between an attacking foe and his target so that his attacks all fall short, as if the civilian or teammate he's shooting at are miles away. Warp space so that up is down, and the enemies fall into the sky.

    These days, *everyone* can open a portal and zap a team around the globe, and there are at least a half-dozen capable team teleporters on Krakoa (Pixie, Ilyanna, Exodus, definitely, maybe Ariel, Vanisher, Blink, Lila, Gateway, etc.) and Krakoa kind of does it automatically anyway, with it's seed portals, so his current use for his powerset is like 'Yeah, I'm a human cellphone!' 'Wait, everybody already has one of those?'

    Let's see some of that 'universal shaper' thing going on!

    Well that was depressing to read, I guess he would be a glorified Taxi service. I loved your description on how to better utilize his powers, I doubt he's going to get any shine in the Xbooks any time soon though.

    He'd be perfect for an interstellar SWORD strike team.

    Given the proliferation of long distance teleporters, much less portal-based ones like Gateway, Blink, and Magik, I almost wish Krakoa didn't have portal flowers, and ALSO was a teleporting blindspot. Would increase importance of ocean liner and blackbird travel, and tele-portal combatants as Red Fleet extrication/liberation mission operatives.

    M and the twins psionic powers were always ill defined. I think when most of gen x was introduced they all had general but not specific notions of how their powers worked.. M first appearance had it be known that she had some type of psionic power and when she helped them escape she displayed super strength. EV powers were all over the place before Gen X 1 gave him the aura.. And husk in her first teenage appearance in Xforce shape shifting powers were different.. she was husking into insects and stuff

    I would say that M and the twins are psionic mutants who display varying talents and skills. Peter David fleshed out TK.. I would rather M have tactile TK if she has to have it at all.I also would love it if they actually gave the Claudette and Nicole some love so we can know what their powers are definitively..

    Bless your soul for trying to make sense out of that family's power set. Bless you.
