Look at what Bendis started...........writers after him keep forgetting that Magik is supposed to be completely immune to telepathy.
Is that true since her resurrection?
So ever since Illyana escaped Limbo, Charles Xavier tried to read her mind to know what really happened to her but he discovered that she had mental barriers around her mind. So ever since her origin story, its been established
that she is completely immune to telepathy.
There has been inconsistencies such as Karma using her powers on her to erase her memory in the story New Mutants: Truth or Death.
However, in All New X-Men, when the Future Brotherhood of Evil Mutants attached, Xavier Jr. used Irma "Mindee" to telepathically torture everyone, including Magik.
However, Magik is supposed to be completely immune to telepathy.
At first, I expected Magik to trick Xavier Jr. and reveal that she is immune to telepathy, thus surprising him and striking him.
I did not expect X-23 to sneak up behind him and attack him, even though it was kind of expected.
If OG Charles Xavier cannot read her mind, then nobody should not be able to!
I know in X-Men: Legacy, Legion used one of his personalities to hypnotize her and throw her in a state of confusion. Depending on your perspective, that may not be considered a "telepathic" attack.
Also, in that same issue, Illyana clearly stated that telepathy and telepathic attacks will not work on her and Legion should not even attempt to try so on her.
So ever since that issue in All New X-Men written by Brian Michael Bendis, writers after him completely
ignore that Magik is supposed to be completely immune to telepathy and forms of telepathy.
