Superuseless Superpowers

Superuseless Superpowers is a blog by an anonymous cartoonist who has taken up the task of chronicling the most useless superpowers. Above is his picture of the superpower 13th Bullet Proof -- being completely safe from 1 out of 13 bullets shot at you.

I gotta say that the most useless superpower I ever saw was in the old Palladium role-playing game Heroes Unlimited. It was clock manipulation: the ability to stop or change the time on a clock through psychic powers. I'll take invisibility or wingless flight over that any day.

Reminds me of a game my friends and I play called Superpower Superdeficiency. You have a superpower, but conversely, a superdeficiency that totally negates your superpower.

For example: You can fly but you are insanely afraid of heights.

I think I have SPATS, spontaneous psychic audible tourette syndrome. I will say exactly the wrong thing at the right time, its uncanny. Like when my sysadmin was buying coffee, and I was recalling the one and only time I've been ice skating and I felt like "a fairy", come to find out my admin and the guy making coffee were closeted. I also ruin many a surprise party.

Please try "Hero Corp" in Google, this is a new french TV show talking about a lost small town where elderly superheroes or useless powers ones are living.

It's quite funny ! Like "Captain Acid" who previously sent acid fluids with his barehands and now only sends soft shampoo, or Mental who can make you do anything ... only if you're intend to do it !
