You have some problems with the formatting and the dialogue.
-- In CeltX, after a parenthetical, you need to hit return to shift to the dialogue mode. You have several cases where the dialogue is formatted like the parenthetical.

This is confusing:

eyes turn black and he wipes everyoneís memory in a flash of
Whose eyes are turning orange? Who is wiping everyone's memory? How would I know that as a viewer?
Yes, you're telling the reader, but a viewer watching your short will only see the orange flash. How will they know the memory is wiped?
-- A lot of the dialogue repeats that action which makes it redundant.

Wouldn't it be easier for him to kill the one's already in the facility to make more room?
I'm sure anyone who knows the comic will understand their powers, but as a total newbie to this series, just seeing the eyes glow colors on the screen would not clue me in. Just seeing eyes turn green doesn't let the viewer know he's absorbing anger.
Remember that the spec script is writing what the audience sees. So when you write "ALEX lifts the tablet with his powers and floats it into JASONíS open hands", you are giving information to the reader of your script that is unavailable to the audience. How do they know that it is Alex? You need to be specific in your script.
ALEX glances over at the tablet.
CLOSE UP as the tablet begins to stir and rise.
Alex's eyes follow the tablet as it floats over to JASON and slips into his open hands.
In the spec script the camera direction
would not be included.
There are myriad little issues that you will want to review in this script before shooting it.
