X-men - unit of the powers

  1. Aug 7, 2017 #1
    I haven't read any of the X-Men books.. what units do they use for the powers?

    For example.. if a telekinetic can stop or deflect a meteor like in Tunguska in 1908.. what unit should be used for comparison purposes.. can Jean Grey also deflect an meteor?

    You are taking this stuff way too seriously. There is zero need for any such measurement/unit. It's a movie.

    I know... but just wanna how many units of energy a meteor packs.. is it in megajoules? For the Tunguska event.. how many units of energy the meteor packs? so to deflect it.. one must introduce the same amount of energy?
