    The concept of Omegas went to shit when they started applying it to protagonists to make them special because of their random slot machine powers instead of who they are or anything actually about them. High stakes! Big strong!

    he is going to create a hard rule for who is and who isn't Omega, probably physics based, and the number of Omega Level mutants will get smaller probably. and Omega Level Telepath has never been the same as Omega Level Mutant. Omega Level Telepath is more like Black Belt in Telepathy.
    When Thanos invaded earth in Hickman's run and attacked the Jean Grey school with his order, Iceman, Rachel, Storm were there fighting off the invaders, and they only referred to Iceman as Omega mutant.

    IMO, Jean, Rachel, Quentin are only Omegas for being ideal Phoenix hosts, not by themselves alone (they arent stronger than Exodus)

    Emma is already a "Omega Class Telepath", which is not the same as being just Omega.

    The system is incredibly confusing. https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/Categ...evel_Telepaths

    Probably most mutants are Omega at their full potential.

    I just hope that Delta Nu becomes an official designation after Eighteen years.
    Continuity, even in a "shared" comics universe is often insignificant if not largely detrimental to the quality of a comic.

    Nobody cares about what you don't like, they barely care about what you do like.

    I'd argue Omegas went to shit when they started repeating the same plot with them over and over without changing a damn thing and makes the X-Men look incompetent when they act like they've never dealt with this before.

    Now I'm not an Omega, but when it comes to collecting root beer bottle caps, I'm Omega-level. This tea, it's an Omega-level bev, but also Omega in general.

    I have never understood the writers who believe that making the characters more powerful makes them more interesting. We end with things like #HOTCLAWS

    And then we have good old Scott, who keeps doing what he did 50 years ago.

    Remember when AoA Jean made Psylocke an omega telepath?

    Dumb.

    Hot claws isn't a good example. I mean, it sounds like a bad story, but it is not really a case of pumping a character's power level to the point of harming story telling potential. There have been plenty of times where a character was given a power increase but it was done well as it could be taken away. Spider-Man with the powers of Captain Universe was fun. Iceman being tampered with by Apocalypse and dealing with the aftereffects was dramatic. Those are things that serve a story and then can be resolved.

    They can be cool temporarily, but when they accumulate and never return to the previous level of power, an absurd arms race begins.

    If it is how Hickman gonna use Omega, well it is allright I guess.

    I would rather not use it, because it becomes a mess. But if Hickman solves it, allright then

    Hickman loves to order things in a methodical and systematic way so I think he can make a system that does not generate ambiguities.

    Eh, Logan always go back to his base powers, the only consistent upgrade that he has is his healling factor, that has become increasily powerfull since 95, any other upgrade is ignored or not talked about much.

    In the case of Hot Claws, that's a good thing. lol
