Top 10 Extremely Misunderstood Superpowers


Top 10 Extremely Misunderstood Superpowers

Hey guys!. In this post, I’ll be discussing a list of Top 10 Extremely Misunderstood Superpowers. We all wish we had a superpower, well, other than being able to make up five minutes before our alarm goes off and then panic sleep for another four and 1/2 minutes before getting up for the day. Today we're counting down the top 10 famous superpowers that don't work the way you think they do. So let’s get started.

10. Green Lantern. 

We all know Green Lantern. His ring shoots green lasers out of it, right? And he has the ability to make shapes with his mind. Yes, we know all of you are screaming at your phones, it's willpower! They make shapes out of their willpower, which is technically true, but not the whole story. All of the various multicolored lantern cores use the emotional electromagnetic spectrum to power their rings. Yellow lanterns thrive off fear. Red lanterns are powered by rage. And orange lanterns are powered by greed, so on and so forth. 

9. Thor. 

Thor is the Norse god of thunder. He's also one of the most powerful avengers. His powers include super strength, lightning strikes, and flight, sort of. Thor doesn't actually fly. He just throws Mjolnir, his magical hammer, and hangs on for dear life. Fingers crossed he's got a good chiropractor because, let's face it, landing after flying through the air attached to a "50 mile an hour" mythical hammer has got to do a number on your spine. 

8. The Flash. 

The Flash's superpower works like this, he's a dude who runs real fast, right? Wrong. Wally West, because he's the one true flash, is the living conduit to a cosmic force of energy called "the speed force." Take that Quicksilver, Speed, Speed Demon, and all those other "my powers that I can run fast" dudes. They're all second fiddle to the one true speedster king, the Flash baby, the Flash! 

7. Iceman. 

Bobby Drake, a.k.a. Ice Man, has had a long career as one of the fan favorite X-Men. You probably remember him as the guy who wasn't Firestar or Spider-Man in "Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends." But the reality is, he's the guy who can turn into ice. How does this work? He alters his molecular motion, thus lowering the temperature of all things around him and creating ice. 

6. Deadpool. 

Deadpool is the merc with a mouth. He's a lovable, fast-talking hero for hire. He's someone who, despite having the inclinations to do good, is more often than not distracted by chimichangas and a seemingly endless assault of, well, basically everyone in the Marvel Universe. Deadpool is known for many things, wisecracking, his red and black suit, and his mutant-healing factor. How does that work? Well, within your body, you have cells that are constantly dying and replenishing. Deadpool's cells are only ever rebirthing. Think Wolverine but make it dude bro, or rather, more dude bro. 

5. Scarlet Witch. 

Wanda Maximoff, a.k.a. Scarlet Witch, is doing something with her hands. She's always waving them around doing magicky stuff, right? But what is she actually doing? She's conjuring up probability fields. You see, she's a mutant whose ability is to warp reality through chaos magic. So if she was to reshape the universe, she can, and she has. Looking at you House of M. Fingers crossed we get to see this in a movie one day. 

4. The Hulk. 

The Hulk is a big green meanie. He's a former scientist who got caught in a blast of radiation, and it had an unexpected side effect of whenever he gets mad, he turns into a giant green golem. In fact, the Hulk doesn't transform because he gets angry, he transforms because of adrenaline. You see, one of the byproducts of rage is adrenaline. And that in concert with gamma radiation gives him his size and strength. 

3. Spider-Man. 

Spider-Man, no his powers don't work the way the movies show them. He doesn't have little tiny hairs going out of his fingertips. Instead, he has a way more scientific and way more complex superpower explanation-- electrostatic force. It alters the level of attraction between molecular boundary layers. You see, the electrons would normally repel one another. Spidey's powers have the reverse effect, meaning his skin can attract surfaces. Think of each of his fingertips as a tiny magnet, but make it scrawny and extralegal vigilante. 

2. Aquaman. 

It's an age-old joke, one everyone's made a few times, even me. Aquaman's powers and abilities ostensibly tally up to he can talk to fish. This isn't quite accurate, though, despite being a solid go-to punchline. In actuality, Arthur Curry is telepathically connected to the ocean, meaning the whole of it. And he doesn't just quite talk to fish. He telepathically can command any aspect of it. 

1. Cyclops. 

And here we are, the granddaddy of characters who people don't actually understand how their powers work, old slim himself, Cyclops, who was thrown out of a plane as a kid and suffered a head injury, so he can barely control his abilities. This is juxtaposed against his stern straight-laced nature and the fact that he shoots lasers out of his eyes, right? Wrong. Scott Summers, a.k.a. the once and future leader of the X-Men, projects beams of concussive force out of his eyes. He's not shooting lasers. It's like he's punching you with beams from a flashlight. So in all the movies when stuff is on fire and he's shooting eye beams everywhere, that's wrong. It's not how his powers are supposed to work.
