"If you could have any single superpower, what would it be? And no, the power to have infinite powers does not count."
The debate is as old as adolescence itself. And while it's always been pretty standard to choose one of Superman' powers, scholars have recently been turning away from conventional wisdom. With so many powers to waste the day fantasizing about, where should you start? CRACKED puts the question to rest as we count down the 7 coolest superpowers of all time.
7. Flight: Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern
Before you start thinking about zipping around the sky, being confused with birds and planes, keep in mind we're evaluating each power on its own merits, so this is flight without the whole
faster than a speeding bullet
thing. Minus super speed, flight really only bestows the ability to float through air at the speed an average man moves: twelve MPH. Seven, really, if you don't want to get winded. Sure, you'd probably find gainful employment taking aerial photographs at golf tournaments but that' about it.
6. Super Cold Breath: Superman, Dude from Dentyne Ice Commercials
Not as lame as it seems. How many times have you been caught with a case of warm Budweiser and wished you could cool it in seconds? Still, you're not going to save any countries with this one. Could be fun for the ladies, though. Get it? Because sometimes they like it when you blow on a certain part of their body? Get it? We're talking about the vagina.
