Superhuman Intelligence


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!


Force Field

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.
