Bad quality and good price doesn't sell. A balance
Xavier's mind reading

Telepathy would also allow you to alter memories, control the person, and sens danger.

I'll magneto's power and his helmet the blocks psychic powers. I don't know if you remember, but his helmet kept Mastermind out of his head in Striker's base. That's why I said spychic powers instead of just telepath. It may block empathic ability as well, but there's no way to tell from the movies.

I was thinking along the lines of Magneto, or Wolverine, or Cyclops, and then I thought nah, the most obvious choice would be The Mimic, and then I could combine powers of any X-Men and do what I want...

That or Phoenix. Altering reality on a molecular level and the ability to consume stars... I can go with that

You know, if you really think about it, you'd be totally and completely blind. Without a retina and cones and rods for the light to land on, no signal is transmitted to the brain, so it would be a world of darkness...
And even supposing you could see, you'd see behind you, and all around you, as well as in front of you all the time. Not sure how we'd process 3D info.
I'd go outside genre, slightly, if I may and have the ability to fly, so Torch would be kinda neat.

thats not going out of the genre... MANY x-men can fly... and technically the Torch is a mutant aswell (or mutate more accurately)... so still well in the bounds of the genre...

I'd like Nightcrawler's Bamf! ability - but without the pelage, the azureness and the tridactylous extremities, please...

Warpath would be my choice he's super strong, fast reflexes, great stamina, awesome duribility, plus a master of hand-to-hand combat and use of weapons.

Sing in such away it would stop all that hear it in their tracks and put peace in their souls. (this was in a dream i had, so what the hell, go with it)

this is a subset of the powers that both Banshee and Siryn/Banshee have. A very interesting choice. And one that Magneto's helmet (mentioned above) could not block, sinse its not a psychic attack, but an aural one.

I can see where you are coming from with this DG, but I'd argue it's closer to Dazzler's power, or Cannonball's younger brother (Jed I think) who was an exact match for what Sloweye is saying, but the character died years ago... possibly from the Legacy Virus - my memory is a little hazy

I always wanted the ability to teleport in some form or another, so Nightcrawler's power would be the one I'd go for. If not that, then some form of telepathy or telekinesis, although not as strong as Xavier or Jean Grey: possibly somewhere closer to Psylocke's level.

I saw an X-men episode with a teenager that could alter reality, I think his name was Proteus, or something like that. He messed with Wolverine and made him cry (which is pretty cool) but his power was the ability to shape reality, which in itself sort of transposes as any power. So I'd have that.

Proteus could indeed warp reality, but had little control over what he did, and constantly needed to feed as his power consumed his own body... he also had an terrible reaction to steel/iron...

However Mad Jim Jaspers had a similar power, but had a lot more control over it. Of course as his name might suggest he was mad...
