The lame superpowers thread.

Because not everyone gets to be an Avenger.

I been thinking...what incredible....yet utterly useless powers can you come up with?
In some many fictional worlds theres "mutants" "metas" "powered" whatever. Yet we only see the great ones - statistically there must be people with crappy powers too.

Me and Atresica have been keeping a doc of them;
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...bXskgl2Vk/edit

So...ideas?

That's a fun concept ! It's interesting, I've recently started watching a serie called Misfits kinda about that. The lamest super power in it is girl's, whenever there is physical contact between her and another person, the other person wants to f*ck her out right at that moment (harsh language because, well that's really what they want to do).
I guess you have seen this then ?


Some on your list are nice, I would love to hear my MP3s in higher quality than they are

Lame super powers, let's see... I know, one that only a few people could actually use : being able to blow air out of your mouth non-stop.

Yeah, but that's the kind of thing you would never use to be sure to have a lamp when you need it

Yup. Didnt see the last season when the cast changed, but the first 4 were pretty good.
I liked the lactosekentic power (control over milk)

oh, wait you meant the image not the show...no :P
Some really fun ideas there
I've seen bullet attraction though on a show called Haven.

Yeah, I also noticed that one and was like "that's not too bad - would literally change my life a lot, considering I spend most of my listening to music".

Sure, if the bandits or whoever is attacking the bodyguards have 100% accuracy on their shots. Else, you're just asking to die faster

And it would be even better if dark places indoors could also activate the power

I guess if you have bullet attraction you would have to wear non-stop the best anti-bullet armor. For a body guard, that's cool, but when you'd need to go to the toilet... or sleep... or make love...

Depends also on its range and where you live.
If its unlimited youd be buried in bullets pretty quick.

It would be cool if you could activate/deactivate it, and it only had a mid-range...
that way you could still protect someone you wanted to, but only when you wanted to.

Sounds like an idea I recently had : you stay clean, even when you don't wash yourself.

Someone else suggested to me hydrophobic man - cant get wet. (which is both a blessing and a curse).

Btw, if you come up with any your proud of, feel free to add it to the doc;
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...bXskgl2Vk/edit
And credit yourself if you want credit.

Totally lame: you can make Undo in everything you do, even when you make a type while hand writing

Lame? Being able to Undo something you've done is extremely overpowered

Imagine being on a death or near-death situation and being able to undo what caused it? Hell, even 5 seconds or 3 seconds would be enough for it to be overpowered already.

Well, maybe the Undo just works on text.

There was a film about a woman that could rewind time 7 seconds. Was sort of a amateur production, but very well made.
Forget its name.

So Darkf, are we doing something about that Photoshop superhero botanist thing or what?

My favorite lame superpower is still and always will be the ability to have scissors at will, provided there are scissors nearby and within reach.

Oww..must did the logs up of that idea.

Anyway, one I got from someone else that I liked;

tele-apathy - the ability to not care at a distance.

I don't get that one. When having an exam you can choose not to stress about it when you are far away ?
