Reality Warping: Proteus' major power is the ability to warp reality. Limited to his own line of sight, he has to maintain concentration or the effects of the power revert to normal. Proteus uses this power to alter the direction of gravitational pull in an area, cause brick buildings to unravel, launch walls at people as weapons, turn the air into ground, etc. He can attack a person's reality and threaten their sanity or cause the ground to swallow a person up and suffocate him, but Proteus' reality warps cannot make someone simply cease to exist.
Possession: Proteus is able to possess the body of an intended victim. His psyche is so powerful that it quickly burns up any body he possesses.
Telepathy: Proteus can read a personís mind and use their innermost fears and secretís against them.
The son of Moira MacTaggert, a noted geneticist who has a research facility on Muir Island, off the coast of Scotland developed dangerous mutant abilities at an early age. This, coupled with his hatred for mankind, led Moira to imprison her son in a special holding cell. Although she tried to find a cure for his vampiric mutant power, Moira was unsuccessful. Dubbed "Mutant X," the young MacTaggert escaped when the containment field generator on his cell was damaged following a battle between the mutant heroes X-Men and their archenemy Magneto at the Muir Island complex.
