―David Hallersrc

David Charles Haller, also known as as Legion, is a mutant. Misdiagnosed as schizophrenic at a young age, David is a haunted man, trying to find his way back to sanity, but he's getting tired and is about to give up when he meets the girl of his dreams.[1]



Early Life

Adopted by the Haller family as an infant, David had a pretty normal childhood until he started to hear voices. David's father was an astronomer and once took the boy to see the stars where David claimed that the stars were talking to him.While in college the voices started to occur more and more often which caused problems with his former girlfriend Philly. He also began doing drugs with his friend Lenny. David also saw a therapist named Poole who he seemingly attacked when he went off his medication. One night David broke into Poole's office and looking for something and when Poole returned David brutally attacked him. Eventually Philly left David. Depressed and at wits end David tried to commit suicide with an electrical cord. While David survived the attempt, the authorities were called and David was put into a mental facility although while they found burns around his neck mysteriously they found no cords or rope.


David was eventually admitted to the Clockwork mental hospital along with Lenny. Around this time his father died, but David was unable to attend his funeral due to the facility not letting him. One day David laid eyes on a new patient named Sydney and was attracted to her immediately. During a group session David asked Sydney to be his girlfriend; she accepted on the condition that they cannot physically touch. Eventually Sydney is admitted to leave and David in a moment of impulsiveness kissed her which resulted in the two switching bodies.

Sydney panicked and, tapping into David's powers, warped the hospital, locking the other patients in their room and killing Lenny. Escaping from Clockwork in Sydney's body, David returned to his own body and he stayed with Amy and her husband Ben for the night where he talks to the "ghost" of Lenny who tells him a group of people are coming after him.

The next day David calls the facility to find out about Sydney where he is followed by two people and while trying to evade them is captured by Division 3 and interrogated. David eventually his temper and pushes a pen through the Interrogator’s cheek and shatters the room around him. Unfortunately David was knocked out by gas and woke up rigged to an electrical trap in the pool where the interrogator reveals they want to know where Sydney is.

Sydney was projected into David's mind and was able to give him instructions about breaking out.


David is a mutant, described by the Interrogator, as "maybe one of the most powerful mutants we ever encountered".

  • Reality Warping: David can alter reality, due to his mental illness it often happens outside of his control. He was able to transform the doors of the patient rooms, into solid walls leaving the occupants trapped inside.
    • Telekinesis: David has shown himself able to control things with his mind. It goes from sending a pen right into the cheek of his interrogator to creates a storm of movement inside his kitchen.
      • Telekinetic Levitation: David was able to levitate into the air.
    • Telepathy: He can read the minds of multiple people at once. Because of the strength of his mind, other mutants with powers that deal with the mind may meet some sort of resistance and prevent those powers from successfully being used on him such as when he blocked Ptonomy Wallace from using his memory manipulation powers on him. He can also create telepathic illusions.
    • Teleportation: When Syd was in possession of Davids body, she unleashed a powerful blast that transported everyone away from her and into their rooms. In Chapter 2, he transported the device that analyzes his powers outside the facility without teleporting himself and the mattress on which he was.
    • Clairvoyance: David is able to see things happening in other places, he was able to see that his sister was in distress, while he was sitting alone on a dock.
    • Astral Projection: David was able to transport himself and Syd to the location of his sister but as invisible and soundless figures. He was also able to manifest himself on the Astral Plane.
    • Matter Manipulation: When confronting the men that taken his sister Amy, he was able to make the ground "melt" then put it back to his normal state so that the soldiers were imprisoned in the ground.
    • Disintegration: With snapping his fingers David can create a flash of light that disintegrates human bodies.
    • Sound Dampening: He was able to completely remove any sounds from an entire house, making the entire area completely silent.
    • Chronokinesis: When being shot at by bullets, he temporarily froze time.



  • In the comics, Legion is the son of Charles Xavier and Gabrielle Haller.
