Isolationist
Real Name: Josef Huber
Search for 'Isolationist' on Amazon


Powers:
The Isolationist possesses the abilities of all living mutants on the planet, much to his dismay.

He has displayed the use of eye beams, ice beams, teleportation, steel skin and superhuman strength, and telepathy. His abilities weaken the further he is away from mutants, though his ability of telepathy remains strong when he is in isolation. He has an aforementioned weakness and inability to control telepathy, constantly hearing the thoughts of people around the world which forces him to ingest large amounts of painkillers and depressants to dull his senses.

Bio:
Isolationist is a German telepath who convinced Jamie Madrox, Beast and Cyclops to organize a "Million Mutant March" political rally to get mutants declared an endangered species by the United States government. However, Layla Miller told Madrox that one of Huber's agents had tried to kill her, and it was revealed that Huber's plan was a plot to get all the mutants in one place so they could be destroyed. Huber claimed that all the mutant voices in his head were driving him crazy and that had manipulated and arranged all of X-Factor Investigations problems and adventures. Then he teleported the team to a frozen wasteland.

He also somehow arranged for a young French girl named Nicole (actually an android created by Huber) to be taken in by M and Siryn in Paris, seemingly of their own free will. This despite later stating that M and Siyrn are immune to his telepathic suggestions.

When Layla Miller survived a murder attempt by Nicole (thanks to a mentally unstable Quicksilver's intervention), Huber's plans came undone. Layla warned Madrox about Huber, who then fought Madrox, Strong Guy, and Wolfsbane. Huber teleported the three to the Antarctic. They were then out of communication range of M and Siryn, who were busy on a case, which had also been arranged by Huber, with the aid of a family of mutant haters. M became worried and flew back to X-Factor headquarters, arriving just in time to stop Huber from smashing Rictor with a car. Rictor had been more or less successfully fighting Huber; Rictor was immune to the direct applications of Huber's mutant powers because Rictor was using Terrigen crystals he had left over from his time with Quicksilver. Huber had not foreseen this. Huber turned to sand and floated away, disdaining tedious fighting in favor his planned genocide. He returned to his icy cave.
