Mutant Power Levels

Mutant power levels can be broken into six broad categories: omega (5), alpha (4), beta (3), gamma (2), delta (1), and epsilon (0).

Omega Mutants

Omega mutants are the most powerful class of mutants. An Omega-level mutant is one with the most powerful genetic potential of their mutant abilities. Some abilities depicted by mutants described as Omega-level include immortality, extreme manipulation of matter and energy, high psionic ability, strong telekinesis, and the potential to exist beyond the boundaries of the known physical universe. Mutants that have been confirmed as Omega-level include Jean Grey, Vulcan, Rachel Summers, Iceman, Legion, Elixir, and Franklin Richards. Storm is a possible Omega-level mutant. Blur is an Omega-level mutant.

Alpha Mutants

Alpha mutants are some of the most powerful and most feared mutants. Alpha mutants have extremely powerful mutant traits without any significant flaws. Less than 10% of mutants are Alpha mutants so they are very rare. Some of the Alpha mutants include Cyclops, Gambit, Professor X, Havok, Colossus, and Emma Frost. Phantasma and Mustang are Alpha-level mutants. Vortex is a possible Alpha-level mutant.

Beta Mutants

Beta mutants may have powers as impressive as Alpha mutants, but their powers may not be as versatile, or they might not have the raw power of an Alpha mutant, or they might have some kind of weakness. Some examples of Beta mutants are Beast, Wolverine, Mystique and Sabretooth. Prism and Surf were Beta-level mutants. Bast, Blindfold, and Panzer are Beta-level mutants. Medic is a possible Beta-level mutant.

Gamma Mutants

Gamma mutants may have powers that are versatile, but without much raw power and with an obvious weakness (often physical). Alternatively, a Gamma mutant’s power might be powerful, but not very versatile and with an obvious weakness. Lastly, a Gamma mutant might not have any weaknesses, but might have an ability that isn’t very powerful or versatile. Some examples of Gamma mutants would be Angel, Cypher, Pixie (before her souldagger), and so on.

Delta Mutants

Delta Mutants have powers that aren’t versatile, don’t have much power, and have obvious weaknesses. These would include mutants that can see in the dark, breathe water, or have other minor abilities.

Epsilon Mutants

Epsilon Mutants are unfortunate mutants. Epsilon mutants pretty much have no chance of having a regular life in society due to their major flaws. If that isn't bad enough, Epsilon mutants usually only have minor superhuman powers. A good example of Epsilon mutants would be Beak or the Morlocks.
