This week Prodigeek highlights the 28 coolest super powers to have. These are super powers that can make your life better – easier to get fame, fortune, and fellatio. These powers also can just make your life easier. Embarrassing side effects like turn blue are looked down upon (it hurts the fellatio…some of the time). So start hanging around nuclear test sites so you can have your very own cool super power.
28. Control plants
It sounds corny, but think about how many plants there are. Yeah, they’re everywhere. There’s some limited application, but with some creative planning (and interior decorating) you can make your home a self-sufficient cleaning and producing machine. Keep your yard stocked with fruits and veggies, make the vines paint your house, and keep a giant Venus fly trap around for security. You’ll feel silly doing it, but it’ll be worth it.
Examples: Poison Ivy
27. Super agility
Jump 50 feet, do the limbo 10 inches off the floor, and bounce off walls like Daffy Duck. Yes, the you can enjoy the acrobatic finesse of a trapeze artist or gymnast without all the sweat and toil and practice. Sure this isn’t as glamorous as super strength, but think about all those kick-ass fighting games. How fun are the tiny agile characters. Yeah, the girls, but there were guys too. And they were fun. In an androgynous sort of way. Still, agility is fun.
26. Super senses
You can hear, see, touch, taste, and feel, flawlessly. Ok, so maybe there’s some negatives (bad smells smell worse), but on the plus side, you can listen into any conversation in your office and help spread the gossip. Or read the newspaper by feeling the ink raised on the paper (that’s what Daredevil does). Super senses sounds silly, and always sniffing the air will make you look silly, but there’s still some fun to be had. You wanna be like Wolverine don’t you?
Examples: Wolverine, Daredevil
25. Probability control
So this may stink for fighting crime, but it rocks at playing craps. Yes, don’t worry about that 1,000 to 1 shot cause with a snap of your fingers, it can be a sure thing. Want to make that straight flush in Vegas. No problem. Any bets will be an easy win for you. And to really impress your friends, mess with the probabilities to make your favorite win American Idol. Yeah, that’ll show ’em.
Examples: Scarlet Witch
So living past all your loved one might suck, but there are some pluses like never worrying about dying. Yup, living forever can just be pretty damn fun. You can travel the world, have ever experience, and never worry about filling each day as if it’s your last.
Examples: Duncan MacLeod (Highlander)
23. Control metal
Think of this as specialized telekinesis. Move cars, planes, and dog collars with the power of your mind. If you’re really powerful, you can even control the iron in people’s blood. Yeah, get that blood rushing in all the right places. You might have some limitations on your powers (you can only control metal, remember), but that’s a ton of stuff. So don’t worry. Be happy.
22. Shoot elements/control elements
This is kind of a catch-all for being able to manipulate fire or water or air or earth. Having all would obviously kick more ass, but let’s assume for the sake of this list that you only get one element, like the Human Torch or Iceman. Different elements have different awesomeness about them from being able to warm yourself when it’s cold (or cool yourself in the heat), splash people in the face, and more. It takes some creativity to makes these powers help your daily life – they’re much better for super heroing, but offer such a range of skills.
Examples: Human Torch, Iceman, Hydro Man, Terra
