Charles Xavier

Professor Charles Francis Xavier (also known as Professor X) is a high mutant level telepath and the oldest of the remaining X-Men. Professor X is a mutant who possesses vast telepathic powers, and is among the strongest and most powerful Earth-born telepaths in the Marvel Universe. Professor X is, in reality, very sickly and on the verge of death but uses his telepathic camouflage to make others see him as he once was. Others perceive him as the healthy, yet parapalegic head of the Xavier Institute that managed to survive the Genosha Massacre. Xavier is attempting to resurface with a new school and rounds up as many mutants as possible, hoping he has discovered enough to continue with their existence.

    • Telepathic Cloak: the ability to hide one's presence from others by making oneself invisible by clouding the minds of others.
    • Psi Link: Xavier can create psychic links with others.
    • Telepathic Camouflage: Xavier can make others see him as someone else by manipulating and controlling the minds of others to make them see him with another appearance.
    • Mind Blast: Xavier is able to place massive amounts of information inside the mind of others to cause extreme mental pain on them.
    • Mind Control: Xavier can also manipulate the minds of others.

Professor X is able to perceive the thoughts of others or project his own thoughts within a radius of approximately 250 miles (400 km). Xavier's telepathy once covered the entire world but Magneto altered the Earth's electromagnetic field to restrict Xavier's telepathic range. While not on Earth, Xavier's natural telepathic abilities have reached across space to make universal mental contact with multiple alien races. With extreme effort, he can greatly extend the range of his telepathy. He can learn foreign languages by reading the language centers of the brain of someone adept, and alternately "teach" languages to others in the same manner; Xavier once trained a new group of mutants mentally, subjectively making them experience months of training together, while only hours passed in the real world.
