Marvel Telepathy Ranking Tournament
In this tournament, we are going to determine a ranking of the main telepaths from the 616 Marvel universe (in ascending order). It would be determined by the WEAKEST telepath in each round until we have a top 20 ranking based on the votes.
*Concept and format by @aystarr*
- Only one vote per Viner is allowed per round. In order to avoid the issue of alt voting, votes from accounts with less than 100 posts will not be counted. Mods will be notified if there is any suspicious voting activity that goes on.
- Rounds will take place every 1-2 days.
- I will only vote in the event of a tie.
- When voting, please consider all aspects of telepathy, such as raw power, skill, defence, wins/losses, statements, etc.
- This is based purely on telepathy or telepathy-based powers, so other powers like telekinesis are not to be considered.
- Do not consider feats or versions of characters that involve amps. Only use their base/standard versions.
- Only 616 versions, so no alternate universe or future timeline stuff.
- Assume that each character is fighting at their best, in character but not holding back.
- No prep.
Feel free to provide reasoning and debate, but keep it civil and respectful. If your vote includes a lengthy reasoning, please bold or underline the telepath's name to make my life easier when counting the votes :)
Respect threads will be linked for each character, but note that many of these RTs are not updated. For scaling purposes, you can find a RT directory for most of the Marvel telepaths here: https://comicvine.gamespot.com/x-men/4060-3173/forums/x-men-psychics-respect-threads-2015730/
