Powers and Abilities
Fantomex can create extremely realistic illusions (he calls this ability "misdirection").
Fantomex has an external nervous system referred to as E.V.A. He has mentioned that E.V.A. emerged from his mouth during his time in the World and developed into a techno-organic flying saucer-like vessel. The relationship between E.V.A and Fantomex is symbiotic, so if E.V.A. experiences pain when she is not within Fantomex, he will feel it as well. When E.V.A. is separated from his body, Fantomex feels no pain and seems able to ignore most injuries. Along with this symbiotic relationship, Fantomex is linked to E.V.A. via telepathy. He can see through E.V.A.'s point of view and can take control of her movement. However, this requires concentration on the part of Fantomex. Moreover, E.V.A, as a bio-mechanical being, can reshape her body into a variety of forms, fly "herself," and generate energy discharges to be used as weapons. Fantomex contains multiple brains for parallel and independent thinking as well as nano-active blood; the nanites in his brain prohibit him from believing in anything greater than himself, such as gods or any supernatural beings. He also maintains an internal back-up nervous system which can be engaged if E.V.A. is damaged. However, this system is less complex than E.V.A. and does not allow Fantomex to see colors.
He possesses enhanced strength, speed, agility, dexterity, reflexes and reactions, coordination, balance, and endurance. Fantomex is also capable of registering frequencies beyond the hearing range of normal humans. He once mentions a healing factor.
He's gifted with three different brains, which allows him to survive severe head wounds since his secondary brains can take over should one be destroyed.
Fantomex can also enter a trance state and perform crucial tasks such as performing surgery on himself. In this state, he can also recover faster while placed in water. He can expertly read the body language of others. He is a very skilled hand-to-hand combatant and a master of stealth techniques. His title in his birthplace, the World, was "stealth-fighter."
Fantomex is a superb marksman. He used to use special bullets covered in sentient mutant skin that never missed their target, they were designed by Sir James Braddock (the father of Psylocke and Captain Britain) but he used his last bullet against Archangel. He carries a variety of guns and other weapons.
His mask incorporates telepathy-blocking ceramics. These allow his mind to remain completely impervious to reading, even facing the most powerful telepaths of the Marvel Universe (Professor X, Psylocke, Emma Frost and Phoenix).
