Ultimate X-Men #66
When Elliot arrived at Xavier's Mansion, he was greeted by Cyclops and the Professor and was given a tour. Elliot was excited and wanted to know when he would be able to fight as a part of the X-Men but Cyclops told him that he would have to go under months of training to see if his powers were able to be trusted. Soon after, Cyclops got a call from fellow X-Man Colossus asking for help: the Brotherhood of Mutant Supremacy had attacked a party he was attending. Cyclops then told Elliot may have gotten his wish. (It is believed that Elliot may have used his reality warping powers to cause the Brotherhood to attack.) Elliot made his own costume by using his powers and boarded the X-Jet. There he met the X-Men Rogue, Iceman, and Storm. The X-Men soon arrived at the Academy of Tomorrow. Elliot demonstrated his powers while fighting the Blob. He was able to produce enough power to effectively move him, which was prevously thought to be impossible. Thus, the Magician had brought the X-Men to super-hero status once more.
Later, during a fight with the Friends of Humanity, Elliot used his powers to turn their leader into a mutant, thinking that he should be turned into the thing that he hated most. When the battle ended and the X-men were headed back to the mansion, Kitty thought about asking Elliot out on a date. The other X-Men found this suspicious because she was still dating Spider-Man. It is possible that Elliot may have used his powers to make Kitty like him in order to make himself look better to the other X-Men. Suspicion rose about him when Nick Fury contacted Professor Xavier to request that Elliot join the Ultimates. This escalated when Xavier asked Fury why he had bothered to send Elliot to him in the first place and Fury responded that he didn't remember doing so. Fury and Xavier came to the conclusion that Elliot had been manipulating and changing their thoughts. Confronted by Xavier, Elliot began to battle the other X-Men. He used his powers to bind them with metal, and threatened to kill them. Jean Grey (as the Phoenix) blasted him with fire. She then struck Wolverine, melting his metal, and releasing him to fight. The battle ended with Wolverine supposedly killing Magician.Elliot later appeared to Kitty Pryde after Nick Fury and S.H.E.I.L.D. had scanned the manor for traces of him. He explained that his powers gave him what he wanted, whether he knew it or not, and that some things he thought had happened had not happened (his parents are still alive, even though he has memory of them being dead. His memory of Nick Fury picking him up is also false.). He then told her that he planned to leave, to go away from all human contact, before his powers caused him to do something extremely dangerous. He said he wanted a human to hear him before he left. After his departure, Kitty had no memory of their meeting.
