List Rules Vote up your favorite telepaths who can use their minds to manipulate people.

Not to be confused with telekinesis, superheroes with the power of telepathy are able to read people’s minds and, in some cases, even manipulate their actions. Characters who can use telepathy are able to reach directly into the minds of their enemies (or friends) and read their thoughts, memories, and even communicate with them directly.

Superhero telepaths can utilize these powers due to a genetic mutation or superhuman power. In some rare cases, like with Charles Xavier and Jean Grey, these heroes have learned to use telepathy with dedicated practice without any other outside influences. The best comic book characters with the power of telepathy include mutants, heroes with gained or inherent superpowers, and those who have been self-taught. Which of these heroes do you think is the best telepath?

Vote up your favorite telepaths and add your own if they’re missing from the list.
