Many powers that the X-Men possess result from the psionic mind; Magneto can manipulate metal, Storm has power over the weather, and Cyclops is able to control interdimensional gravitational energy. Telepathy and telekinesis consitute the psionic mind, which doesn’t have mass, but it can exert force and cause motion. Being physical and spiritual, the psionic mind is separate from the conscious and unconscious minds. Jean Grey, an Omega, has unlimited potential; her abilities are so strong that Charles Xavier has to use psionic blocks to “cage the beast.” If her psyche were liberated, she would become the host to the Phoenix Force, making her indestructible. Professor X is the repressive side of human nature; he upholds self-sacrifice, negating Grey’s destructive powers, but failing to recognize that the self the woman would destroy is the ego. Magneto, who has the ability to fly, a sign of freedom and a direct contrast to Xavier’s paralysis, is the result of witnessing the horror of the Nazi concentration camps. Magneto sees himself as superior, seeing no reason to treat humans as equals. Xavier is his antithesis, believing that superiors can learn to treat inferiors as equals; that’s the purpose of his school. The term “gifted” is a euphemism for a power that, if fully unleashed, can overturn conventional morality and replace it with one in which “might makes right.”

5 Reasons The Non-Superpowered Superhero Thing Is Bullshit
Some of our most popular superheroes aren’t super at all: they weren’t born with special powers, never gained powers via some freak accident, and must rely completely on ingenuity and hard work to succeed. They’re just like us!
Except…they absolutely aren’t. The “superhero without superpowers” deal sounds nice, until you realize that every single one of them is naturally leveled up to the point where they become superpowered by default. No actual human could possess or accomplish what these people do, so the implication that these people are powerless, yet still super somehow, is pure bullshit.
So what amazing powers does your favorite non-powered hero possess? 100% of the time, they’ll boast one or more of the following …

ERICA GOLDSON: Graduation speech

Erica Goldson must have had some serious balls to give this speech

This is beautiful.

this is so wonderful 

This hit hard. Our education system is desperately in need of fixing.
