Unlike his parents, David prefers to take on the role of an antihero because he has the same mental illness like Marc Spector (Moon Knight). That is one form of dissociative identity disorder, better known as dissociative identity disorder (DID).

As a child, David lived in Paris with his mother, a member of the Israeli diplomatic service. But tragedy struck, a group robbed his house of terrorists who killed Israeli citizens.

The robbers killed every Israeli they met there. Before their very eyes, they even killed David’s stepfather (Daniel Shomron) and David’s mother. Instantly David’s latent telepathic power was activated. He could feel the horror that the slain people felt around him. After the incident, David was hospitalized, and his mental condition began to become unstable.

David’s mother initially hid the fact that she was the son of Professor X. However, David was able to find out for himself that he was Professor X’s son. Knowing this fact, David began to learn about his potential strength which turned out to be superhuman strength.

Power and Abilities

Legion is an Omega Grade mutant with the ability to create spontaneous mutations with various attributes. Because of his extraordinary strength but because he suffers from dissociative identity disorder (DID). David has various strengths for each of his personalities.

David says that he has “200” Omega Grade mutant multiple personalities in his mind. Each alter ego in him has its own strengths and differences. Simply put, David Haller’s power as Legion is everything. It all depends on which personality is controlling his body.


She suffers from dissociative identity disorder, also known as multiple personality disorder, which was triggered after the death of her stepfather. His power allows him to hear and feel the thoughts of all those killed in the vicinity. This led to the creation of the first three alters with different psychic powers. One telekinetic, one telepathic, one pyrokinetic. Then it begins to expand to an unknown number of alters, perhaps thousands, all with unique powers.
