Supes has his specific weaknesses against Mental/Magical/Energy attacks...

Would these 3 beings be odds on favorite to win a solid majority of the time against him in a battle?

Would it make ANY difference if they were prepped/not prepped to fight him?

Charles Xavier Mental
Dr Strange Magical
Extremis IM Tech+Energy

Extremis wouldn't win a majority, but he'd pull one out from time to time.
Strange wins 10/10
Chucky X makes Supes cluck like a chicken 11/10

I'm not sure any of them would be favorites, per se, but they could certainly win their share of battles. Well, at least two of the three....

Professor X with prep and stealth could definitely control Superman....heck, if Poison Ivy can control him for a while with a kiss, then Supes is definitely susceptible to a world-class telepath. That said, if Superman is able to fight off the psi for just a little bit, he could easily rattle Xavier's concentration with just a simple breath.
> Dr Strange Magical
Strange with prep can beat pretty much anyone, Superman is no exception. That said, I think Supes' 'weakness' to magic is a bit of an overstatement. Everyone has a weakness to magic by its very nature --- Superman is no different. Supes' weakness to magic is no different than, say, Hal Jordan's weakness to it. Superman has enough experience against magic-users that I'd say he could take Strange at least half the time.

> Extremis IM Tech+Energy
I'm not sure why you think Superman has a weakness against energy. I think Supes would own any version of Iron Man, even Extremis. The best Tony could do would be to use tech to distract Supes, but for a close look at how this battle would go down, look at how easily Superman has been able to tear through the constructs of the (non-ringed) Cyborg Superman in the past.

In theory Xavier should shut him down pretty easy with *Zero* prep!
In practice I think it would be a bit of an effort but he really should be able to do it either way - Xaviers ability as a Psi been disrespected way too often for my liking.

> Dr Strange Magical
This is not as simple as some would think, Superman has learned to resist this kind of magic thanks to advice from Zatanna and his experiences against Arion. It's a fifty-fifty affair.

> Extremis IM Tech+Energy
Tony's got Zero chance. Superman eats technocrats for breakfast.


Basically i see Xavier as the surefire bet among these three, he has bth the power and the skill.

I still see Supes winning majority in all these. Xavier would be tough, but I think Supes can muster his will to fight off his attack at least a slim majority of the time. Also his speed could help him attack before Xavier brings his mental might to bear (Supes isn't faster than thought, but he can attack so fast Xavier won't even have turned his attention to him;that's where prep makes a difference).
Supes would beat IM a huge majority, but it will always be a good fight.
Strange could, on occasion, defeat Supes with what appears to be embarrassing ease if he gets off just the right attack. But I think Supes will still beat him a majority of the time as he is more of a fighter.

> Key thing that was mentioned here is "in theory" though...
Charles SHOULD be able to mentally dominate almost all beings not gifted with TP
BUT
Magneto by sheer force of willpower has manged to resist him...
The Hulk has a mind hard for him to "handle"
Superman has been shown able to resist to some degree minds like Brainaic, Black, Desparo...
True Lord "got" him. but took YEARS of suble memtal assaulting to weaken Supes down...

Seems to be the deal with Supes, ESPECIALLY after geting "trained" by MM in mental defenses...
That IF he is aware of someone possible attacking him menatlly, his force of willpower, mind, defenses etc CAN be somewhat of a dterirent to him, but IF someone attacks "unawares" than he can be hurt mentally...

The White Martians had him "mentally enslaved" to thinking chained up by Green K, but onve aware of the illusion, broke free..
Black "got" him mentally, but would not be totally dominated by him..
Ditto Desparo,...

So IF Charles hits kal FULL Power, trying to take him out immediatly...
STILL
Kal only neds to resist for 2 seconds, enough time to use HV/Frost breath, pinkie to the head etc...
Charles might down him, or might be taken out, as even MM mentioned Supes has a peculiar mind to scan...

Charles doing anything less than going for the "kill" though gets taken out, IMHO!
