The X-Men are among the most beloved superheroes of all time. The recent movies (except maybe Wolverine) are among the most financially viable franchises currently in production. With even more movies on the way, as well as some new TV productions, X-Men are more popular than ever.
But how many X-Men are there really? The movies have only scratched the surface of the great well of Superheroes that belong or are associated with X-Men and some have tremendous power. We all love Wolverine and Cyclops, but which mutants really harness the most power?
On this list we take a look at the most powerful X-Men out there, to the best known favourites to some of the more obscure mutants. Being powerful is not just about the potential of your powers but how much you can control them. Does your favourite make the cut?
Charles Xavier might not be the strongest mutant
But Without him
there would be no X-Men
Putting him among the most powerful Marvel heroes!
Don’t let the movies fool you!
Rogue can drain the lifeforce
from anyone she touches
Accessing their memories and skills
and even their powers!
Dubbed the God-mutant
Legion has over 200 mutant personas within him
Making him just a little unstable
and virtually unstoppable
Easily one of the most powerful mutants ever
Magneto transforms any metal into a weapon
Need an island? He can do it
without so much as lifting a finger
Phoenix strikes fear into fellow mutants
with her unlimited power
She learned to control it
making her the most powerful X-Man
