X-Men: The Return of Marvel’s Most Dangerous Mutant

Omega mutants are famed for their classification as the most powerful group of mutants. Their powers have no limit, which in turn marks them as a helpful ally or a dangerous foe.  However, an unfortunate decision has resulted in the X-Men resurrecting the most dangerous Omega mutant ever.

Charles Xavier attempted a cloning process to increase the number of mutants in Krakoa

Jonathan Hickman’s X-Men sets up the island of Krakoa as the establishment for the mutants. In the island, Charles Xavier uses a cloning machine to increase the number of mutants – especially Omegas. With the task of containing and protecting these powerful mutants, the X-Men work under the “Omega Protocol” started by Xavier.

The X-Men were tasked with resurrecting dead mutants from the past few decades

However, turns out the X-Men may have resurrected an Omega that potentially puts all their lives at risk. As the Omega level brother of Captain Britain and Betsy Braddock, Jamie Braddock’s powers have never actually been accurately defined. This presents a grey area in itself. However, his abilities revolve around manipulating reality by pulling on the quantum strings that bind the Multiverse. Initially, Jamie could only use his powers over a localized radius. However, over time, the Omega has successfully improved on his powers to use them on the entire world.

Beyond manipulating reality, Jamie can also resurrect the dead

With Jamie’s abilities having limitless uses, it even gives him the power to resurrect the dead by himself. The current priority within the X-Men lies in restoring all the mutants who have been killed in the recent decades. With Jamie’s help, this can essentially be a one-man task. However, his mental health proves to be problematic in correlation to his powers. His abilities came out during his time at prison – a time when he was going through constant mental strains. It provides an indication that the more mental stress he’s under, the more unstable and dangerous he becomes. Either that, or the more the works with his powers, the more Jamie’s grip on reality starts wavering.
