Behold, the ultimate mutant! Well, until the next most powerful mutant showed up. For a time, Nate Grey, the X-Man, was hailed as the most powerful psionic mind in several worlds and yet another of many in line to put an end to Apocalypse. He’s normally a balanced PL12, but with Boost, can increase his Telekinesis and Telepathy to rank 16: more powerful than even Professor X.
Since Nate hasn’t fully reached his potential, he cannot use the full depth of his powers without backlash, so he normally uses his powers at rank 12 and Boosts them sparingly. Nate’s Drawback causes a -1 Drain to Constitution for every rank of Telekinesis (3pp/rank) that is Boosted. So Boosting Telekinesis to rank 16 will drain 4 points of Constitution from Nate!
Nate’s Telekinesis/Telepathy array contains nearly every conceivable use of those mental powers. Unlike previous telepath builds, I did not unfold Telepathy into its constituent powers because Nate’s Communication range has never, to my knowledge, been explicitly limited.

The Summers clan seemed to get some extraordinary attention from Sinister and Apocalypse, but I wonder if they would have been that powerful if they hadn't worried so much about them and manipulated them, genetically and otherwise. Self-fulfilling prophecy, I guess.
Of course, all that hoopla over Alpha-level mutants kind of died off once Omega-level mutants started cropping up everywhere! The Summers bloodline has nothing on the Grey!

That's quite flattering. It's always surprising to have done a writeup that you hadn't gotten to first!
