Isolationist is a Marvel comics supervillain and an enemy of X-Factor.

Jospeh Huber’s uncontrollable, simultaneous copying of all Earth’s mutant abilities threatened to drive him mad, his telepathy hearing Earth’s every thought and voice, the powers painfully raging inside him. Using his family fortune to create an isolated Arctic base, he turned to drugs to dull his constant migraines. Realising he would never know peace while Mutants lived, he worked with Dr. Sasha Ryan to destroy the huge Mutant population of Genosha.

Powers / Abilities

  • Power Mimcry: The Isolationist can absorb the powers of Mutants. The power absorption is automatic. While he can control the powers he uses, he cannot turn off his ability to absorb powers.
  • Telepathy: The Isolationist has the telepathic abilities of every telepath on Earth. He is able to listen to the thoughts of every mutant on Earth. He is also able to subtly influence the minds of others, both on an individual scale and with groups. However, he has a mental block keeping him from overtly manipulating their minds.
