So, I've been gathering feats from Marvel Telepaths all across the spectrum and think it would be interesting to make a Tier list for them, to show their feats and scaling.

This is just a frame work for the posts and how they will sectioned. I'll be updating and adding to each section over time. Hopefully, I'll be done by the end of the month. I'll first put in the entries with a link to the feats, but over time I'll upload the images.

Tier 0: Cosmic Tier (Sky father and above)

I understand that powers of cosmic beings tend to vary and expand exponentially. I don't have the energy or patience to start classifying and grouping them, frankly it sounds like he'll. So I'll just group them all here.

Sample; Odin, Loki, Thanos, Phoenix, Watcher, Silver surfer, Dr Strange, Hungry Galactus.

Basically some people here can stomp some other people here, they are not all equal. The main message is that guys in theses tier are far above every one else.

Doctor Strange: Master of Mystic Arts, Sorcerer Supreme

these covers mostly Classic Strange. Honestly this dude is a badass.


Dr Strange claimed that he was strong enough to make pre-retcon beyonder live trapped in an illusion for eternity

1-He is able to dispel an illusion from D'spayre

Defeats Mind Gem Moondragon in an astral battle

To be continued

Silver Surfer: The Quintessential Herald

The Surfer is the most famous Herald that's Galactus has had, his power levels are well known as scaling people in Herald tier basically comes down to how they compare to him. Obviously his telepathic feats are highly impressive.


Here he fights off the Other, cosmic being with consciousness as wide as a dimension.




He has almost defeated Mephisto in astral battle, in mEphistos own dimension (out of his dimension, Mephisto was able to ignore psi blasts from 3 alternate Xaviers and destroy their astral forms)


He took a psi blast from Mind gem Moondragon and was only knocked down. A psi blast from her knocked out Xavier.

Freed himself from the mental control of the goddess

Fooling an insane Galactus with illusions (acknowledged that it would not work on a sane galactus)

Freeing Rogues mind from the Inciters, a powerful hive mind of 9 billion souls (the inciter absorbed all the souls on Zen la, plus 90s Rogue had telepathy resistance, so they would have been powerful telepatys)

Caused world peace on a planet with telepathy

Calmed the inhabitants of a planet

The Queen of Dire Wraiths connects to his mind and try to take over him, but her mind basically gets fried (the wraith Queen has a telepathic link to billions of her people, so for his mind to overload her is impressive)

Galactus: Eater of Worlds

Forever Hungry, what makes Galactus impressive is that most of his feats are performed when he is hungry (Not to full power). The few feats Here are from Hungry Galactus. You can only imagine what he could do at full power.


70s Xavier who fought dark Phoenix could not get past his mental shields with magnetos help.

90s Xavier projected the feelings of 8 billion skrulls into his mind and he barely registered it.

Projecting the hatred of 9 billion skrulls into Xaviers mind, staggering him

Resisting Thanos and Moondragons attempt to take over his mind and making thanos run away in fear

Going toe to toe with Odin in a telepathy battle


With the help of Moondragon, he is able to get into the mind of Galactus and try to take over (he doesn't)

A weakened Thanos requires 3 Telepaths (moondragon, Cosmo and Mantis) to restrain him, and it becomes harder as he heals and regains his mind.

Kicks moon dragon out of his mind

Takes control of Fallen one and brainwashed him

Defeated Moondragon in an astral battle

He turned of the mind of a sentient cosmic cube Kosmos and trapped her in her body (though, Kosmo was amnesiac and insane and was limited by her mortal body, also she was childlike, and Oracle also replicated the feat, albeit it drove her insane. Still, quite impressive)




The Phoenix

The Stranger

For Scaling purposes, Legion using a single personality will be on different tiers

Telepathically makes a crowd see him as a giant

Going by the skill feats and high ends he already had in a weaker Form, his placing seems justified.

I think Emma might be ranked a tier too high. I mean she beat Rachel when Rachel was like a tier 3 and she only stalemated exodus. She’ll definitely be able to beat Psylocke and probably be able to beat Pryor and Stryfe but I feel like classic Xavier could beat them too.

@elpendejo: she also has one over Legion. And beating the Skrull blockade when they had already duplicated the powers of Emma and Jean. Honestly she doesnt have as many high calibre god feats as the others in her tier but shes way over any in that lower tier when it comes to quality face offs. It's just hard to rank a person who can be argued as hanging with current Xavier as tier then the others up there.

Really though it's a bit of an issue because arguing Exodus, Rachel and Classic Xavier are in the same tier as current Psylocke, Mantis and empty hype like Stryfe is a bit of a divide in that omega class tier.

Hmm I'd maybe argue God Cable being higher. Need to dissect his feat in comparison to Phoenix and Surfer TP feats.

Otherwise I'm satisfied

Who is a more powerful telepath, Jean or Emma Frost ? From what I have read it seems Jean is the better of the two, but an eXpert´s opinion would be nice.

@thor_parker82: Stronger and Better are very different answers. Jean is easily stronger then Emma is. Emma however has more skill feats then everyone short of Xavier and is generally portrayed as the most competent telepath here.

You just made it more confusing haha.

Who is the more powerful telepath between the two ? If they were to have a strictly telepathy fight who would win ?

@elpendejo: The thing is that Exodus, Classic Xavier an Rachel can be scaled to eachother. While Emma can be scaled at or over Exodus in his best modern fight. Its not a tier of difference, but if you drew a line between that group of four and only took one to the next level it would be Emma.

@thor_parker82: Lol when we argue telepaths we usually separate power and skill showings, that's what I was getting at.

More then likely Jean. Shes comparably skilled but a tier stronger then Emma. But by feats Emma makes her work for

@koays: I feel like classic Xavier would at least be at current Emma’s level though. I’d also put Psylocke a tier below her current. I haven’t seen much skill improvement from her.

You guys chill. I haven't even put in the real list with feats. This is a place holder.

Now, the tier placement is kind of a combination of psychic skill shown, fights against other telepaths, Big feats and a sense of their placing in Comics (someone calling them one of the top 5 Telepaths, or one of the strongest Telepaths or other).

Let's wait before we turn this into PSI war version 7

I agree with this, I'll add my reasons once I post, think I'll start with the Cosmic Tier today.

Just want to warn you guys, I'll try to make it as unbiased as possible, but I'll probably end up ranking my favorite characters (Martha, Monet) at the top of the list

@phillip33: My reason for Cosmo being high was mostly scaling off Warlock and Mantis, but after I post, I'm open to corrections and suggestions so that the list can be revised.

Warlock is hard though, most of his feats kind of blur between soul and telepathy. But since the X-telepaths and some others like Shadow king have been shown to affect souls, I used then as feats.

Didn't they had some kind of telepathy fight during Morrison's run ? I remember something like that, and Jean won easily IIRC.

Surfer and Savior Cable should be on same tier.

@aqualion0: Cable doesn't have any telepathic feats on Silver Surfers level.

Being connected to every mind on earth isn't enough to put him up there. The wraith Queen was telepathically Reading the minds of billions of her people continuously for years and Silver surfer stomped her.

Gamemaster has been reading every mind on earth for years but Jean grey took him down.

Cable has a lot of hype but few feats, without his hype, I'd move him lower.

Although he doesn't have many feats I still think that Cable is on par with Surfer. I mean , if Surfer actually had better TP than Cable why didn't he took battle on astral plane or use TP to shut him down?

@aqualion0: just because he didn't use telepathy in the fight, doesn't mean that he couldn't. It's like Nate grey Vs Holocaust or Exodus Vs Holocaust.

Holocaust doesn't have great telepathy defenses, and has been affected by Sage (and I think Psylocke), but to give a fight, the writers don't let them Exodus or Nate use telepathy to fight him, they try to use telekinesis.

That fight against Surfer was high level telekinesis, no telepathic attacks, no astral battle, no psychic traps. We can't really use it to scale Cable to Surfer.
