Helmets are key

Emma frost got added to the game today and oh boy she seems to have a lot of abilities that make her a good defender. But during her specials, she supposedly "mind controls" the opponent, or at least messes with their head, resulting in a control reversal.
However, can this affect anyone? Here is where i present an idea (i hope its not already in the game, sorry if it is). Some champions should be immune to that kind of mind control. Specifically, Im talking about magneto and juggernaut, who exclusively wear their helmets in order to not be affected by mind control abilities like these. So basically, i propose that juggernaut and magneto should be immune not to all control reversals, but at least to the one emma frost inflicts.
This will still make emma extremely painful to fight against, while at the same time it will "buff" some of the oldest champions of the game, giving them an immunity that by definition they should have. What are your thoughts?

    Forgot about unstoppable colossus, thanks for the reminder. If anyone knows if they said anything like that please post the link to that thread. Thanks

    They confirmed that they were already doing this but I can't remember if it's an ability or a synergy.

    Honestly it makes no sense for it to be a synergy. Each one of those champions should be immune to telepathic abilities just by himself. But whatever, I'm glad that the developers thought of it.

    It says they'll call it out in her Spotlight, but that hasn't been posted yet

    Thanks a lot man! If anyone has tried to fight against her with either juggernaut, magneto or unstoppable colossus and has a video showing to what extend the immunity goes, it would be appreciated if you posted it (just out of curiosity).

    then it should also be added psylocke full immunity and maybe phoenix in at least some decrease if not

    I feel like Robot characters like the Ultrons and the Sentinels should be immune as well. No brain = no mind control.

    Genuinely curious, why psylocke? Not much of an x-men buff, so I have no clue why she’d be immune to it

    They should have expanded this to Robots for obvious reasons. Phoenix cuz well, good luck getting into her mind. Sentry is the strongest telepath when he's not being a b****.

    Well, I'm glad they even thought to exclude juggernaut, magneto and uc. My 6star juggernaut made the fight longer but easier...
