I was once in a role-playing game in which one player had a character with a weird but ingenious superpower. It was the psychic ability to make an opponent lose control of his bowels. Although this was not a conventional combat ability, it proved to be surprisingly effective in dealing with enemies--especially those that were unaware of this superhero's power.
Some superpowers are obviously useless. Others may be effective in combat, but render ordinary life terribly difficult. Cartoonist Kelly Phillips drew twelve strips illustrating them, including the abilities of Wolverine, Storm, Professor Xavier and Spider-Man.
I hadn’t thought of it before, but how would Tony Stark deal with an itch while he’s in the Iron Man suit?
