Going from those most recent scans, is Exodus supposed to now target Emma Frost? Do you guys think there will be a psi-battle between the two? The White Queen is the only other telepath who could have altered Kitty's mind to that extreme that I can think of.

Check the Emma respect thread for the rest of the scans it was Emma who did it.
Probably not, well not yet anyway. I think they're going after Cannonball and Iceman seeing how Emma's directing them to the diaries.
I realize that interviews aren't concrete proof and even I agree that they should be taken with a grain of salt as perspectives change as time passes.
However Carey compared Sinister and Exodus...and in his opinion Exodus has more raw power. Again I'd like to say that this should be taken with a grain of salt as it's an interview. But it's an interesting point and something we should be looking forward to in the Messiah Complex.
New X-Men V2 #46
(16th January 2007) (Writer: Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle, Artist: Humberto Ramos)
Exodus takes on Storm, Syrin and Cyclops. He is untouchable due to his Telekinetic Shield. He is also using his telepathic powers to hinder Emma's. It would seem logical that Emma is doing the same to him seeing how she isn't doing anything and Scott and co aren't mind wiped, but that isn't stated.
I agree, Exodus does have more raw power, and become versatile opponent (as with any high end TP/TK character). But Mr. Sinister is sooo far from weak, and bringing the fight to him on his own turf is just asking for trouble. Let alone the fact, that he has dealt with higher end Psi Characters, and intimately knows the mechanics behind pisonic.
I love both characters. Exodus, Mr. Sinister, Magneto, and Dr. Doom. They make some of my all time favorite villains in Marvel.
X-Men Legacy #208
(27th February 2008) (Writer: Mike Carey, Artist: John Romita Jr., Klaus Janson, Scot Eaton and John Dell)
The Aftermath of the Messiah Complex is finally here. Xavier who has just been shot in the head with a bullet by Bishop is currently under the "protection" of Exodus and the Acolytes.
Exodus is trying to "help" save Charles Xavier, thanks to the bullet most of Xavier's brain mass has been reduced to a pulp and his mind shattered.
Exodus tries to probe Xavier's mind to assess the damage that's been down but Xavier blocks his probes. It's found that Xavier conditioned his mind to automatically block out the thoughts of others when he was a soldier at war in Korea.
Realizing this, Exodus destroys what's left of Xavier's mind. And physically puts him back together atom by atom, cell by cell...using his sub-atomic telekinesis.(See Interviews) He also stores all of Xavier's memories for him in his own mind.
"Q: What's the actual status of Professor X in the title? I understand the team is trying to piece together parts of his consciousness.
Carey:It starts out as an attempt to repair the damage done by Bishop's bullet, but that turns out to be a lot harder than anyone expected. Exodus thinks that with a combination of his psi-powers and sub-atomic level telekinesis, he can more or less pre-empt God and put Xavier back together again like Humpty Dumpty. But even though he gets in fast and does everything that seems to be necessary, it doesn't work. Xavier remains in a coma, initially, and they have to find some other way to make him re-engage with life."
(24th February 2008)
"MM: Sudoku is an interesting choice for that. I could see how that might work very well for changing your mindset given the numerical nature of it.
I suppose we should actually talk about X-Men: Legacy itself. So to get more into the future of X-Men: Legacy Professor Xavier has been shot in the head and Cyclops has disbanded the X-Men. Where does Legacy take readers from there?"
"MC:Legacy picks up almost immediately after the events of X-Men #207 so it is scant minutes after Xavier's been shot. We pick up in a different location but with a very short amount of elapsed time. We are dealing with an attempt to revive him, to save his life even though he's technically already dead, by Exodus who is perhaps one of the very few characters in the X-verse who has the raw power needed for a job like this. Although, as it turns out, he's not able to save Xavier in any meaningful way by himself. He needs help from other sources. The first issue deals with that attempt to repair the physical, organic damage to Xavier and also to begin addressing the damage to his mind which is colossal. He lost a large amount of his brain mass.
That's the initial crisis; bringing him back. For reasons I won't go into just yet."
"MM: No, not at all. Can you talk about what Xavier's priorities are going to be at all?"
"MC: It has to do with putting himself back together, putting his own mind back together. Exodus has some of the strongest telekinetic powers of any X-Men character and he's able to repair Xavier's brain at a cellular level absolutely perfectly and absolutely seamlessly. The problem is that during the time that Xavier is dying and then dead a lot of the memories he had drained away. The damage was so massive that the memories couldn't be restored. We're talking about significant physical damage and therefore significant memory loss. What he's doing in the first few arcs is trying to fill the gaps in his knowledge and understanding of himself by going to the people that he knew at key moments in his past and taking their memories of him to replace his own memories of his own actions.
Inevitably, that means he's getting contradictions and distortions, so he can't necessarily trust what he's getting. But at least it's a starting point – it's better than nothing."
