The Problems with Superpowers

Your radiation experiments have finally succeeded! You now have superpowers. Congratulations. But before you try extraordinary feats, you should think about precisely what your powers do and do not do.

Sure, you can fly at supersonic speeds. But you’ll freeze. Also, you’ll get lost.
