          Well, Athena gifted her with "Divine Eyes". It was why Maxwell Lord could not mind control her! A Max Lord whose Tp was so powerful, even Martian Manhunter had serious issues with him.

          Quote:
          I'd like to clarify here; Maxwell Lord had nowhere near the telepathic power of the Martian Manhunter. The reason J'onn couldn't undo what Lord had done was Max spent years subtly altering Superman's mind; it was a case of careful manipulation over time, not a quick but powerful manipulation.

            If J'onn and Max were to go head-to-head telepathically, J'onn would destroy him. Max used to get nosebleeds just from telepathically influencing one person, whereas J'onn can psi-scan the entire planet.

        In fairness the only hero capable of going up against Max was Diana and this is due to her psi-resistance.



    Quote:
    Where did they say only Diana could go up against Max? There's no way Max has enough telepathic power to be a threat to the Manhunter.

I believe that the point of Max Lord's threat is that no one realized just how powerful he was.

Notice Diana says that if Max can push Kal she can push the rest of them and she's only possibly resistant/immune (which she ends up being) due to her Truth ability.

This was also elaborated on in an interview with Rucka. Wonder Woman was the only person who could have accomplished the task due to that unique gift.

I didn't take it to mean that Jonn couldn't fight him off but because it's an illusion based/control ability maybe it effects Jonn differently? I dunno.
