How you feel about your favourite superhero depends largely on their superpowers. Whether you think a character’s powers are awesome (such as Superman’s ability to fly and shoot heat rays from his eyes) or lame (like Aquaman’s ability to… umm… talk to fish), powers make the superhero. However, there are many superheroes out there that actually have no powers at all. Many of the most popular and kickass superheroes of all-time have no superpowers to speak of. And that hasn’t stopped many of them from becoming insanely popular in comic books and movies. Here’s a list of the 10 best superheroes who have no real superpowers at all.
10. Nick Fury
He’s the leader of S.H.I.E.L.D, is in incredible shape, is a weapons expert, and can fight with the best of them. Yet, Nick Fury has no discernible superpowers. In fact, given that Nick Fury has only one eye, one could make an argument that this Marvel character is actually handicapped in some ways. Of course, the eye patch has never slowed Nick Fury down or stopped him from saving the day or helping out many of the Marvel heroes who do have superpowers – notably The Avengers and Spider-Man. He’s also got his gruff demeanor and take no prisoners attitude, and these traits help to explain the character’s enduring popularity despite not having any real powers of his own. It also helps that he’s played by actor Samuel L. Jackson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
