Marvel Comic character, David Charles Haller, or more widely known as Legion, has quite the pedigree as the mutant son of Professor Charles Xavier. Unknown to his father until his late teens, it was the awakening of Legion’s power that led to him finally meeting Professor X. Legion’s strength was so great that he was able to absorb and utilize the power of any mutant he encounters.
This immense intake of power put Legion in a catatonic state. After Legion had allowed his power to be absorbed, Professor X was able to manipulate his powers and personas to release the catatonic hold on him. This ability makes Legion the most powerful mutant, but it comes at a price. Though he may have the use of various persona’s powers, each personality controls their power, leaving Legion with little control. And by taking on the personality traits of everyone he becomes, Legion is nearly impossible to stop.
