    Default Mutants who should be considered omegas

    Hickman published a list of omega level mutants and there were some glaring omissions.

    The most obvious one was Professor Charles Francis Xavier. Last time I checked he was the most powerful telepath on the planet. What happened to that?

    I would also argue that Magma is an omega. I think you could also make a case for Eva Bell.

    Is there anybody else who you think ought to be on the list? Anybody want to disagree with me?

    I've said before that classification systems should be done away with entirely, but if they're going to be used, then Magneto being considered omega means Polaris should be too.

    Throughout her history, Lorna's been repeatedly referred to as either having the potential to surpass her father, being her father's equal, or having actually surpassed him (albeit at a time when he was weaker). She's also been presented previously as an "opposite pole" to her father in The Twelve and other things, suggesting that at the time she'd be considered equal in power.

    The only thing Magneto really has over Lorna is decades more experience, but years of experience doesn't seem to be a criteria of who counts as omega.
    I can also be reached on Twitter and WordPress. Avatar by Ty Romsa (not commissioned by me).

    Tempus could be Omega. No one with time manipulation abilities like Tempo or Sway has shown to have her variety and power. She can do almost anything.

    Now if we count people like Kang maybe she's been surpassed via tech and that is why she's not there? Even though Eva has shown to be able to do whatever Kang has done.

    Magma has got a good powerset on paper but she's never been that impressive.

    I always thought Stryfe is enhenced version of Exodus... And X-man, he was so powerful years ago, but both of them are not on the new omega list.

    I think they avoided alternate versions because it'd be quite a mess.

    I don't think Apocalypse is on the list, why wasn't he considered Omega?

    Also clones shouldn't count.

    What are Apocalypse's original powers anyway? He's probably an Alpha like Charles plus he's cheating due to Celestial power up.

    That mutant girl from Marvel Comics Presents #48-50. I think wolverine called her the most powerful mutant.

    Legion can do whatever Eva has done with time foolery.

    Legion's reality manipulation has a different result than Eva's time abuse.

    Gateway is omniscient and can teleport through time and space and has all the Dreamtime stuff. Someone should have figured out he's essentially a precog. An annoying oversight. Everyone always be sleeping on Gateway.

    He can probably do whatever other characters on this list can too, since he can essentially get any superpower.

    Thanos. Not sure if he has the X-gene or not but he is easily the most accomplished mutant in Marvel.
