We'll be using Exiles Mimic. To those of you unfamiliar with him, he can mimic any superhuman's abilities but at only 50% effectiveness/power. He can have up to 5 superhumans copied at a time MAX.

My Mimic's copying the following superhumans :
Magneto
Prof X
Cannonball
Blink
Colossus

He can overcome or initiate BFR (thanks to Blink), he has protection from or he can initiate mental attacks (thanks to Prof X), he has respectable physical stats (thanks to Colossus) backed up by shielding and other exotic abilities, like flight and blasting (thanks to Magneto and Cannonball).

8swords
Spiderman - SS,agility,speed
Fantomex - trickery
Sebastian Shaw

this 3 would do it for me..

side note.. just curious about mimics powers, he has 50% effectives of the power, does that change depending on the number of powers he's mimicing? or is it just flat 50%.

Basically an arms race.

If you care to look at the bullds, i started by matching the initial mimic, trying to keep the power sets in the same ballpark.

My using jenny Quantum/Jim Jaspers was in response to Silent Master throwing in Legion/Franklin Richards, 2 characters WAY higher on the power scale than what was started with.

From there its just a matter of time till we hit abstracts.

I don't know the Cap he have for this...

North star - half speed of light, light blast, flight
Kitty Pride - untouchable, phase through you
Storm - control the weather
Psylock - close range combat, psi blades, tp
Proteus - reality warping

DarkSaint85
How does Mimic's power work?

So with Kitty's powers...does he only have his top half phased at a time?

Adam Grimes
How do you half warp reality?

DarkSaint85
With50% effectiveness, I'd really hate to have Blink's powers.

Will this teleport work? 50/50 chance of ending with my head fused into a building.....lol

I should have said no "Godlike" superhumans and I should have limited it to Marvel. Having said that, I could have just started with :
Mad Jim Jaspers
Jamie Braddock
Franklin Richards
Marquis of Death
HoM Wanda
And ended my own thread before it began.

PS Proteus is fine. He has exploitable weaknesses.

The way they explained it in comics is, he has that person's powers but at only half strength. For example : Colossus could lift 100 tons, Mimic Colossus could only lift 50 tons. Northstar could fly at light speed, Mimic Northstar could only fly at 1/2 light speed. Mimic Wolverine's healing factor was only half as fast/effective as Wolverine's healing factor. These are actual examples from the comic. I always assumed for more exotic powers like phasing or reality warping the scope and upper limit of the power would be halved. For example, Kitty's phasing powers. Kitty could phase herself and up to 1 ton of mass. I assumed Mimic Kitty could phase himself and 1000lbs of mass.

DarkSaint85
I prefer my interpretation.

I'll just punch you in the dick.

Mimic can "stack" powers for increased effectiveness as he's demonstrated by stacking healing factors. This means that my mimic would have a significant advantage as far as psychic "raw power". Also, as far as I know Mimic doesn't actually gain any skill as far as utilizing his powers so your guy would only be able to use all his powers at their most basic levels. On the other hand my guy still has some off Sage's innate skill at figuring out just how powers work best. More raw power+greater skill using my psi powers means I that I just strait up overwhelm your defenses and shut your mind down easy peasy.

He also already has some experience with telepathy.

Yeah but my guy's mimic too, I have the same experience plus what I get from Sage so I'm still ahead in skill.

That was the point.

Oh ok, I thought you were pointing out that his guy would be able use more than basic telepathy so I wouldn't have an advantage.

darthgoober
You know when you get right down to it, making Sage a permanent part of his powerset would have been the smartest move Mimic could have done. It would have made him a truckload more effective.

krisblaze
Yeah, telepathic immunity + supersmarts.

But that immunity is mainly because she chose to play it that way. Iirc she was just a standard telepath, so there's a possibility that he would just get run of the mill telepathy.

Oh I didn't mean for the telepathy so much as for the added control of other powers. One reoccurring theme among most mutants is that they don't actually use their powers to their full potential so with Sage he could prob do most of what the other mutants can do at full power even though he only had them at half strength.

Yup. I remember this when he stacked Deadpool and Wolverine's HF. But I still think my guy wins. He can hold out for a split second or more then crush you using Magneto's power or tp a few tons of sand in your stomach using Blink's power.

carver9
He had half of their powers. Example, he had Colossus strength and ability to turn to Steel. He had North star speed and ability of shooting light blast. He also had human torch full (50%) power as well. He had Wolverine healing abilities, senses, and Claws.

I just don't see it happening. My guy would be the most powerful non plot device level psi in the world with a brain that ran 1/2 as fast as Sage's. Mounting any kind of defense whatsoever would require your guy's absolute full attention. I see relatively few characters that could avoid a virtually instant mind shutdown against such an onslaught. Even if such a thing were possible, he'd be just as at risk against the combined 1/2 TK of Rachel Grey and Exodus.

Best Mimic scene ever...
