Ah, Mad Jim. I've been trying to get a hold of the Alan Moore Captain Britain issues/run for a looooong time, to no avail (I know that they have a hardcover collection, but it's about $100, even for sale on Amazon.). This is said to be the Captain's finest hour.

From all of the scans that I saw, yeah, Mad Jim might be the most powerful mutant around. Isn't the one in the 616 Marvel Universe supposed to be even MORE powerful? I know that Claremont originally intended to use him (And or The Fury.) during the Mutant Massacre storyline. From what I read, there was supposed to be a 616 version of Mad Jim that was even MORE powerful than the Alan Moore one. Is Jaime Braddock on the same level as him? Thanks.

I would say, conceptually he should be on par with Jamie Braddock, Proteus, some versions of Legion, Clyde Wyncham Jr, Franklin or other similar manipulators of matter and reality whose powers appear to reach at least universal scale. As far as power goes, he is up there, at those levels the kink in the armor is usually a mental one, a lack of mental toughness or some vulnerability to mental influence or lack of certainty. For Franklin, it's his holding on to his childhood, for Proteus his allergic reaction to metal, for Legion his split personalities, for Clyde is his own love of heroes and the Marvel universe, deep inside. Jamie has his feelings for his family, and Mad Jim? he is a creature of folly, who desires total and absolute control, with the destruction of all that is more than "normal", his own "Fury" against differences from himself is his own downfall, all the times.

Jamie is, at least in my mental image of him, more deranged in a way, but less evil and all about family; Jaspers is a bit more composed, even though his nightmarish folly can make the world easily in a Dali painting, he is still at heart a fascist xenophobic fool who craves control, with all the trappings of one.

Technically, the Jaspers you see in all my links and in the OP is the 616 one, on the verge of going Omniversal with his wave of reality manipulation; The Fury is from a different universe, whose Jaspers was killed by the Britain Corps with the Universal Nullifier, sacrificing his entire universe to slow the spread of his madness, from which the Fury escaped by following the trail of Cap Britain to 616.

other Jaspers could still be, not yet awakened to their full mad power, in the multiverse; there was one whose only power was universe hopping and was chased down by a host of Furies that exterminated each universe he hopped in.

basically, they killed that teleporting Jaspers, and mindfucked the Furies in believing that they had already exterminated the 616 universe and left.
