25 Superpowers You Wish You Had
Posted by Mary Reyes on May 16, 2012
If you had the power of echolocation, you’d know be able to locate objects by using sound waves like a bat. You would never lose a game of Marco Polo and always be able track down villains even if you can’t see them.
Ever wished you could turn back the clock? With the power of time manipulation, you can! Awkward moments would never happen, all-nighters wouldn’t be necessary, and good times would last longer with this convenient superpower.
Not even Chuck Norris would stand a chance against you if you had the power of superhuman agility. Your lightning-fast reaction time, great flexibility, and excellent jumping capacity would definitely give you the upper hand during battle.
Ever wondered what your pet is thinking? If you could talk to animals, you’d be able to talk to cats, dogs, armadillos or any other random animal that happened to cross your path. You’d be a real life Eliza Thornberry.
If you were immortal, you could live forever and be the oldest person on earth. Young fools would flock to you seeking wisdom and guidance – they’d probably believe anything you said. You would also have no need for a bucket list because you’d have the rest of eternity to have fun.
You could be as smart as Albert Einstein with the power of superhuman intelligence. Due to your superior intellect, you would never have to study because you’d just be that good. You could party the night before an exam and still ace it.
With the power of mind control, you could persuade your boss to give you a raise, demand an A from your professor, and brainwash your parents into letting you quit school and go backpacking through Europe. Basically, you could do anything you wanted. Life would be grand!
If you value your personal space, being able to generate a force field could come in handy. This power would be ideal during those times you just want to be left alone. Creepers at the club would never mess with you, because they would just be propelled across the room if they tried.
You wouldn’t even need to visit Platform 9 and ¾ to walk through walls if you possessed the power of intangibility, which is the ability to phase through solid matter without harm. You could never be locked out of your house or car because a key wouldn’t be necessary.
There’s really no need to introduce this superpower. It’s the power every little kid dreams of having from the moment they first watch Wendy and her siblings take off into the night sky with Peter Pan. Imagine a world with no traffic jams, where you could travel anywhere on a whim and see the world from a bird’s eye view. If you could fly, this imaginary world would become a reality.

List25 compiles lesser-known intriguing information on a variety of subjects. List25 was started by David Pegg (@iamdpegg) and Syed Balkhi (@syedbalkhi). These college roommates from University of Florida loved finding bizarre yet interesting information on the internet, and sharing it with their friends. The problem was that facebook just couldn't compile it in a way they wanted. It was impossible to pull what they had shared a few months ago. Out of their frustration, they decided to solve the problem with a new project called List25.
