I find it hard to keep track of Jean Grey and what is her 'fulfilling her potential' and what is the Phoenix entity.

Legion
Mad Jim Jaspers
Franklin Richards
Hope Summers
Marquis of Death
Omega (Michael Pointer)

Scarlet Witch isn't a mutant anymore.

If I had to take one of the above out - guess it would be Omega?

Depends on how you interpret power and what it means. Someone like Omega was supposed to have super duper power, but limited feats and uses. There's also the issue of how much credence you lend to a temporary writer's character vs established mutants. By power you can either look at history and feats, or you can "count midichlorians". Personally, I would only look at established characters for this title. There's too much power fluff and the list would include lots of very limited time appearance people. In no particular order, my list would be:

1. Franklin Richards. He's consistent and he's powerful. Fighting celestials and creating pocket worlds type of powerful. Kid has real chops. He's probably the top of any list.

2. Nate Grey. Nate was a creation of Sinister and we never see him really reach his potential (at least not yet) and he's been forcibly depowered. But at his peak he was an overwhleming force whose power signature was nearly identical to the phoenix entity. Not currently a powerhouse, but a historical look would include him.

3. Nathan Summers/Cable. Again, thanks to Mr. Sinister. Nathan has honed his powers over a lifetime against the TO virus. And despite a recent power-down, should rank as one of the strongest mutants. Not only does he have a vast history of feats like overwhelming psi-armor, but when relieved of his TO virus has major feats. Rachel Summers told Nathan when his power was fully unleashed he would be able to interact with people psionically across vast distances and his telekinetic could snuff out stars. Just like Nate Grey, we gets occasional hints at full potential, but have not yet seen it.

4. Jim Jaspers, who I don't follow much, seems like he obviously belongs here.

5. Exodus. Yes, Exodus has his low showings, but across his historical appearance he has demonstrated his high showings should place him among the most powerful of mutants. Not only a psionic that can stand toe to toe with the best the world has to offer, but the ability to drain psionic energy, to live seemingly forever, and to use powers with his psionics that are not duplicated in other mutants. Exodus' appearances are like a pendulum, one day he is team busting on astroid M or smacking down Sersei. Other days he is groveling around in the snow trying to sneak up on Nate Grey. But when his game is on, its on. He encased an entire island in a telekinetic shield WHILE beating the hell out of a swath of heroes. Without breaking a sweat.


Again, you'll find more powerful temporary characters that a just meant to power inflate a series or arc. But they don't last long and I just don't give them as much stock.

Legion has wiped out Elder God beings and time traveled, plus he has a host of super powers.

I drop Legion's ranking due to a total lack of control. Legion is like a dice roll, and I think that limits him a lot IMO. There's no question to power is there, but he's just as likely to curl up in a corner as he is to blow up the earth, and HE doesn't make that decision most of the time.

Jaime Braddock. Is the Marquis Of Death even a mutant? This is the dude from Mark Millar's FF run, right? He seems like a one-shot deal.

Not arguing with the folks per se, a few could go there, but Jasper's should probably be number one. He was a threat to the multiverse. Basically he was omnipotent reality warper for the most part. Or had the potential to be.

He was what a planetary 'reader'? not much more overt feats.

Sienna Blaze. Because I think she can also use her powers to teleport. I don't get how control over electromagnetism lets her teleport but somehow she does it. She needs to teach that trick to Magneto and Polaris.

But yeah, on just raw power she was taking on Storm, Cylcops and Professor X, probably 3 of the most skilled X-Men.

I thought he popped into another dimension in between the jump points in the main universe where these little Nightcrawler looking trolls say Bamf a lot.

Proteus has too many limitations.
