We all wish we had super powers, and when we close our eyes and dream about our newfound awesomeness we see ourselves flying, being super strong, moving things with our minds, setting things or ourselves aflame. But for some the dream of being mutated and gaining superhuman abilities does come true, perhaps too true.
For every person who has a better job, better house, and better toys there are the dregs, the pond swill whose unhappy task is to live in the shadows of greatness. I’m talking about the superheroes who were given extremely lame super abilities and forced to live a life of ridicule and mockery while fighting crime alongside their more gifted peers. For every high flyer there is a super crawler with an equally single-minded or eye-rollingly lame name. Let’s explore greatness’ shadow and have a look at the worst super powers ever created.
There were a lot to choose from, so at the bottom of the list I’ve included some more heroes whose powers for one reason or another were not quite as lame as the powers in the list, but hilariously lame enough to earn an honorable mention.
