Omnipath: Gamesmaster is a superhuman telepath so powerful that he can hear the thoughts of every being on the planet. However, he cannot block the thoughts out, and thus his mind is constantly filled with six billion voices unless he is able to greatly concentrate on a game.
Mind Control: Gamesmaster possesses the ability to manipulate the thoughts of others, and has suggested that he is able to manipulate the thoughts of the entire population of the Earth simultaneously, though he has yet to demonstrate this ability. To a lesser extent, he is also able to control the actions of other sentient beings.
Very little is known about the life of the mutant known as the Gamesmaster. In his own words, he is "like Churchill's riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma". Presumably, his mutant ability to read the minds of every sentient being on the planet emerged at an early age, affecting his sanity. At some point, the immortal sorceress Selene, then Black Queen of the Hellfire Club, contacted the Gamesmaster and together they organized the Upstarts, a competition for wealthy and powerful individuals with the sole purpose of killing mutants for points in a twisted game. He agreed, if only to provide a distraction from the constant chatter in his mind. By focusing on the ambitious and powerful thoughts of the Upstarts, the Gamesmaster was able to somewhat drown out the rest of the world.
