Different mutant powers in the XCM (movies and series)

Post by X-Continuity » 18 Oct 2021, 12:32

Please guys, no criticism, just add some positive feedback and insight to the following descriptions of the "new" powers. Thanks!

1- Iceman: he apparently acquires a "ice armor form" in The Last Stand. It seems to me he was also made of pure ice in DOFP, you can notice it when the Sentinels kill him (twice). So his power further evolved.

2- Cyclops: his beam is pinkish-red with white streak in the middle, not full red. His concussive energy produces small friction and tiny flames (more evident in Origins and Apocalypse).

3- Gambit: he can charge one object with pure kinetic energy that "manifests" itself as kinetic blast (and not explosion), wherever the object hits the target. Same with his signature baton. His eyes become pink when he uses his power. Also: superhuman agility.

4- Mystique: he does retain superhuman agility, reflexes and stamina. Not sure about superhuman strength, even. I don't think so.

5- Warpath (DOFP): danger sense or enhanced sight? What do you think? There's one sequence...

6- Shadowcat: chronokinesis, time travel power. Secondary mutation...

7- Bishop: he can absorb radiant energy, store and then convert it into signature red kinetic energy that can be extracted/"used" via his special rifle. In nuce, he is a human battery of red kinetic energy and needs special technology.

8- Sunspot: no superhuman strength at all. He can generate solar fire (plasma). He can turn himself into a solar being reminiscent of The Human Torch. Am I right?

9- Negative Teenage Warhead: Lady Cannonball? Does she emit thermo-chemical blasts to propel herself? I don't think her powers are nuclear. She does not emit radiation. That would be dangerous for anyone close to her, including the X-Men.

10- Yukio: electricity manipulation/generation and technopathy. That would explain why she can fix Cable's device. She's like Forge.

11- Beast (human mode in FC): only his feet where big-sized, not the hands.
He can become "Beast" (Ape Form) through adrenaline surges.
Besides, his eye color becomes more and more red wherever he gets "feral". Beast's default eye color is normal?

12- Jubilee (X2-Apocalypse): electricity manipulation/generation.

13- Quicksilver: he has no accelerated healing.

14- Callisto: not just supersenses, but also superspeed and Caliban's mutant detecting powers.

15- Magik from "The New Mutants". The Limbo could be a parallel dimension she taps into? Or she's a reality warper like Proteus. Your pick.

I think this belongs in X-Pression. This is a factual section where you get like verified/canonized info. Your idea is creative and interesting but I think this is the wrong section.
So on one hand we have the existence of a being who can reset the entire timeline, destroying everything…, and on the other hand we have a few mind wipes and some gaslighting. You're right, totally evenly weighted.

Yes, this is the forum for factual questions and answers.
