Would Professor Xavier’s mutant team have been more effective than the Avengers and Guardians against Thanos?
Would the mutants have been more successful than the MCU superheroes against the Mad Titan? Alas, we will never know for sure, since if Avengers Endgame potentially allowed the creation of the X-Men, they were not yet part of the Marvel universe at the time of the “snap”. However, one wonders what would have happened if the team of Professor X had fought Thanos instead of the Avengers and the Guardians … Indeed, the team of superheroes assembled and trained by the famous telepath has already triumphed over terrible enemies in the past. Between their extraordinary powers, their combat skills, their cohesion in front of the bad guys and their superhuman power, the mutants are formidable warriors!
But would these assets have made it easier for them to beat the Mad Titan than the Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy combined? The presence of several children of the atom endowed with particularly powerful particularities could have tipped the scales in favor of the mutants. For example, Malicia is a formidable adversary, thanks to her deadly capacity to absorb memories, powers and part of the personality of the people with whom she is in contact. Imagine for a moment if she had put her hand on the Mad Titan when he has the Infinity Stones … She would have “pumped” the magic, and could have turned her against him!
And for her to reach the villain, Wolverine (the only X-Men who would have survived Thanos’ snap in Avengers Endgame, according to the Russo brothers) is the ideal ally. With its healing factor that makes it invincible, as well as its skeleton and adamantium claws, it shreds everything in its path! Especially with the help of Jean Gray, the largest known telepath and telekinesist. When she embodies the Force Phoenix, this X-Woman has terrifying cosmic abilities, such as control of space, time and life force … With such opponents, perhaps Thanos would have been beaten easier !
