| powers = Onslaughts powers were well over that of Omega Level. In Onslaughts first form, the one he had when he was one with Xavier. In this form, Onslaught has shown a wide variety of abilities including nearly limitless strength, and near indestructibility. Onslaught's psionic powers appeared limitless, appearing to surpass even that of Xavier in his right mind. He was especially powerful in the Astral Plane, where he appeared to have god-like abilities. Even [[Phoenix (Jean Grey)|Jean Grey]]'s powers were completely useless against him. From what has been seen, he seems to have total mental control over anyone or anything he wishes, ranging from altering one's perception to believe they are someone or somewhere else (he demonstrated this by making [[Wolverine (James Howlett)|Wolverine]] believe he was a wolf pup, and making [[Storm]] think she was a child), to most conceivable forms of telekinesis. Onslaught also possesed many forms of energy projection, all of which at high levels of power.

| powers = Onslaught possessed the combined abilities of Professor X, Magneto, Franklin Richards, and X-Man, including telepathy, telekinesis, astral projection, illusion creation, mental bolt projection, sensing mutant presences, manipulating magnetic fields, and affecting reality itself. Onslaught could also enhance its physical size and strength.

After fully evolving into his own, separate consciousness and having [[Professor X]] ripped from him in the Astral Plane, Onslaught evolved into a second form, less resembling [[Magneto (Magnus)|Magneto]] and looking more like a cybernetic monster. In this form, his powers were increased to virtually godlike levels, including the ability to mass-manipulate (his complete takeover of all the [[Sentinels]]), create and reshape matter at will (shown when he created his citadel, and when he created a second sun to destroy Earth), and an apparent omniscience (as evidenced when he easily thwarted an attempt to sneak into his citadel). His physical strength was also shown to be at obscenely high levels; so much so he was able to literally rip the Crystal Gem of Cytorrak out of Juggernaut and throw him across North America and go toe-to-toe in a physical fight with the [[Hulk]], after the Hulk's mind had been blanked and his strength and rage set to incredible levels, using the mental powers of [[Phoenix (Jean Grey)|Jean Grey]]. For a time, Onslaught had these powers while still in his first form; the majority of these came from the absorption of [[X-Man|Nate Grey]] and [[Richards, Franklin|Franklin Richards]]. In the end, Onslaught's true body was revealed to be a mass of pure, psionic energy that was immune to all forms of physical attacks.

bio_text= Onslaught was a sentient psionic entity created from the consciousness of two mutants - Professor Charles Xavier, telepathic founder of the heroic [[X-Men]], and Magneto, self-styled Master of Magnetism. During a battle between the X-Men and Magneto's [[Acolytes]], Xavier used his telepathic powers to shut down Magneto's mind, rendering him catatonic. During the psionic contact, Magneto's anger, grief and lust for vengeance entered Xavier's consciousness, combining with every long-suppressed negative feeling Xavier had endured during the last 30 years. This aggregation resulted in the being known as Onslaught.

bio_text= When Charles Xavier telepathically rendered Magneto catatonic, he unknowingly absorbed Magneto’s dark ego. Magneto’s negative emotions merged with Xavier’s suppressed urges, forming a powerful, dormant psionic entity - the self-dubbed Onslaught. Rising anti-mutant hysteria, Legacy Virus casualties and Xavier’s failure to rehabilitate Sabretooth all increased Xavier’s frustration. When anti-mutant humans killed young mutant [[Hogan, Dennis|Dennis Hogan]] near the Xavier Institute, Onslaught finally awakened within Xavier, and it decided to achieve Xavier’s dream of peaceful mutant/human coexistence by utilizing the interdimensional firm [[Landau, Luckman & Lake]]’s warp portals to bond humanity into a collective intelligence. To this end, Onslaught attempted to generate fear to heighten psionic activity. In Vancouver, B.C., Onslaught sought to recruit Xavier’s step-brother [[Juggernaut|Cain Marko]], the criminal Juggernaut. When Marko declined, Onslaught mentally blocked Juggernaut from remembering its true identity, and magnetically threw him to New Jersey.

To assist disseminating his hyper-psionic energy, Onslaught had the mutant teleporter Gateway abduct the psionic mutant [[Chamber]], sent the armored mutant Post to “test” the X-Men and [[Cable]], and recruited and empowered other mutants such as Blob, Mimic and Holocaust. Now fully possessing Xavier, Onslaught revealed Xavier’s suppressed darker memories to [[Phoenix (Jean Grey)|Jean Grey]], hoping to recruit her Phoenix Force experience to gain more power. Rejecting Onslaught, Jean removed the Juggernaut’s mental block, discovering that Onslaught was Xavier.

Thor began disrupting Onslaught’s form from within, and the other Avengers, the Fantastic Four, and several non-mutant allies weakened it further.

When Charles Xavier telepathically rendered Magneto catatonic, he unknowingly absorbed Magneto’s dark ego. Magneto’s negative emotions merged with Xavier’s suppressed urges, forming a powerful, dormant psionic entity - the self-dubbed Onslaught. Rising anti-mutant hysteria, Legacy Virus casualties and Xavier’s failure to rehabilitate Sabretooth all increased Xavier’s frustration. When anti-mutant humans killed young mutant Dennis Hogan near the Xavier Institute, Onslaught finally awakened within Xavier, and it decided to achieve Xavier’s dream of peaceful mutant/human coexistence by utilizing the interdimensional firm Landau, Luckman & Lake’s warp portals to bond humanity into a collective intelligence. To this end, Onslaught attempted to generate fear to heighten psionic activity. In Vancouver, B.C., Onslaught sought to recruit Xavier’s step-brother Cain Marko, the criminal Juggernaut. When Marko declined, Onslaught mentally blocked Juggernaut from remembering its true identity, and magnetically threw him to New Jersey.

Learning the mutant-hunting Sentinels could store psionic energy, Onslaught abducted scientists to create a Sentinel army. Soon after, Xavier encountered X-Man (Nate Grey) on the astral plane, who pulled Xavier’s astral form into the physical world. Onslaught thus escaped Xavier’s mind, but was still “tethered” to Xavier. To assist disseminating his hyper-psionic energy, Onslaught had the mutant teleporter Gateway abduct the psionic mutant Chamber, sent the armored mutant Post to “test” the X-Men and Cable, and recruited and empowered other mutants such as Blob, Mimic and Holocaust. Now fully possessing Xavier, Onslaught revealed Xavier’s suppressed darker memories to Jean Grey, hoping to recruit her Phoenix Force experience to gain more power. Rejecting Onslaught, Jean removed the Juggernaut’s mental block, discovering that Onslaught was Xavier. Onslaught then trapped Juggernaut’s consciousness inside Marko’s own empowering Ruby of Cyttorak, and created the child-like psionic projection Charlie to befriend and capture vastly powerful mutant child Franklin Richards.

As Xavier, Onslaught attempted to lead the X-Men to war against humans. When the X-Men resisted, Onslaught revealed itself and attempted to destroy them. Onslaught then mentally enslaved the Hulk and sent him after Cable, but Cable and Storm freed the Hulk. Onslaught captured X-Man, adding both his and Franklin’s psionic powers to its own. It sent the Sentinels to Manhattan to sow panic, created a Central Park citadel, and unleashed an electromagnetic pulse. The X-Men, Fantastic Four, Avengers and even Doctor Doom opposed Onslaught, and after Thor freed Xavier, Onslaught became even more powerful.

Concluding that no one was worthy to live, Onslaught decided to obliterate humanity and created a second sun. While Thor and Storm sought to minimize the resultant climactic damage, the Hulk had Jean Grey turn off his human mind, resulting in a rage-fuelled Hulk who shredded Onslaught’s psi-armor. Onslaught exploded, separating the Hulk from his human side, and became a being of pure mental energy. Thor began disrupting Onslaught’s form from within, and the other Avengers, the Fantastic Four, and several non-mutant allies weakened it further. As Onslaught dissipated, both Franklin and X-Man were rescued. Though believed dead, the heroes were actually transported to a pocket universe subconsciously created by Franklin where they briefly encountered a manifestation of Onslaught, heralding his future return.
