Whether you grew up reading comics or you’ve only recently between introduced to the world of Marvel and DC by the plethora of comic book movies that’ve been released over the last decade, we’re willing to bet that you’ve spent some time fantasizing about which superpower you’d like to have if given the opportunity to run afoul of some radioactive waste (trust us, you aren’t alone. We’ve spent years thinking on the subject). Regardless of where your interest in the super-powered comes from, we here at Goliath want you to know that we think it’s an important subject to think on, which is why we’ve taken the time to research the 10 super powers we think are the coolest, along with the heroes or villains who best represent that power. Feel free to sound off in the comments and let us know what you think; until then, here are 10 superpowers we wish we had.
10. Energy Blasts (Cyclops/Gambit)
While we’re sure having the ability to manipulate energy wouldn’t be without its consequences (we’re looking at you, Cyclops), especially if that consequence is getting to wear extra cool sunglasses all the time, but you’ve gotta admit it’d be pretty cool to be able to fire off an energy blast every now and then. Sure, it’s more practical in the superhero world than it is in its everyday application, but imagine you’re a lumberjack…I think cutting down all those trees just became a whole lot easier. Or maybe, just maybe there will be a terrifying alien invasion or zombie outbreak or apocalyptic event where those energy beams might come in very, very handy. Of course, we can’t predict the future and a lack of everyday application is why energy blasts are way down here at the bottom. Still, explosions are tempting…just ask Michael Bay.
