Water Breathing

If you had the power of water breathing, you could breathe underwater like a fish. You’d be able to scuba dive without bringing an oxygen tank and if you ever had to jump into a lake to escape an angry swarm of bees like Yogi Bear, you’d be all set.

Invulnerability grants heroes immunity to one or more forms of physical, mental, or spiritual damage. If you possessed this power, you would never have to worry about getting beat up by bullies, mending a broken heart, or suffering from depression.


Time Travel


Did the flux capacitor in your time machine break down again? No worries! You wouldn’t need a time machine if you possessed the power of time travel. It would be so cool to be a part of the crowd at Woodstock or visit your future self.


Night Vision


Screw the flashlight app! With night vision, you would never stub your toe on the way to bed again because your eyes would always adjust to the dark. You could also read in the dark, which could come in handy during late-night study sessions if your roommate is asleep.

Some friends can communicate through facial expressions, interpretive dances, or in other non-audible ways. But wouldn’t it be easier to develop the power of telepathy and communicate by reading each other’s minds? You could carry on secret conversations in public and no one would ever know.
