Superpowers! The word alone conjures up images of heroes stopping trains with their fists or shooting lasers from their eyes. But most desirable powers we can imagine don't require a costume, just a camera.

In this week's podcast, Jack O'Brien, Michael Swaim and Jason Pargin (aka David Wong) talk about the greatest unacknowledged superpowers in film.

Every movie protagonist has a list of powers that could make Spiderman weep. You can hear them all now if you throw on your headphones and click play above, go here to subscribe on iTunes or download it here.
