Every X-Men ranked from weakest to strongest

Good or bad, there are X-Men with incredible powers and abilities out there, but there can only be one to take the number one spot.

2. Professor X

Professor X, the bald-headed beacon of peace and telepathic titan of the X-Men universe, ranks at number 2 among the 18 strongest X-Men in the movies. It is no small feat, and let me tell you, Charles Xavier earns this spot with the kind of grace that makes you want to stand up and applaud (telepathically, of course).

This isn't just because he's got a school named after him or because he can read your mind like an open book or find mutants and humans alike in his super machine Cerebro. No, it's because Professor X wields his telepathic powers with the finesse of a maestro conducting an orchestra, influencing minds, projecting his thoughts across vast distances, and even locking away memories with the ease of someone popping a lock on a diary.

But what really cements his place just shy of the top spot isn't just his raw power - it's how he uses it. Professor X is the epitome of "with great power comes great responsibility." Instead of going on a power trip, he chooses to guide, protect, and teach. He's like the ultimate mentor, using his abilities to foster peace between mutants and humans, making him not just a powerhouse but a profound peacekeeper. His strength lies not only in the might of his mind but in the depth of his character, proving that true strength often comes from the heart... or in this case, the mind.

While he might not be number one on this list, being the runner-up in this super-powered lineup is all about how he balances his immense abilities with a vision of a better world for everyone - mutants and humans alike.
