1. There's no difference as I understand it. Even though Magneto's power is over magnetism he can repel just about anything with it.
2. A telekinetic force field would be psionic energy made solid or a repulsive field affecting all matter and energy.
3. I'd say yeah probably electrons and possibly protons from the atmosphere around him. But I doubt they're still probably whizzing around constantly. So it probably would feel solid if you touched it, probably feel like electricity.
4. Depends on who's creating the telekinetic field. Magneto is one of the world's most powerful mutants so his field is very strong, though Jean grey or Cable might be able to create a stronger telekinetic field.
As for telekinesis and magnetism, the impression I get is that it entirely depends on the strength of the character. Magneto can make stronger shields than Polaris. Jean Grey can make stronger shields than Psylocke (depending on what her power set is this week, of course) .
And Magnetic shielding *is* something that is being researched in real science.
"To create the deflector shield around a spacecraft or on the surface of a planet or moon, scientists need to generate a magnetic field and then fill it with ionised gas called plasma.
The plasma would be held in place by a stable magnetic field (without the magnetic field, the plasma would simply drift away). This shield could be deployed around a spacecraft or around astronauts on the surface of a planetary body such as the Moon.
As energetic particles interact with the plasma, energy is sapped away from them and they slow down."While the exact composition of Magneto shields is unknown, but this might provide a clue. At the very least the fact that magnetism can hold plasm indicates it's has the ptoential to be very powerful.
So let me see if I understand this correctly. If you have complete control over electromagnetism, a fundamental force of the universe then why do we not just call it telekinesis? If it works on the subatomic level then your basically an all out matter/energy manipulator like silver surfer right?
