20+ Stories About People With Superpowers That Would Make Even Marvel Heroes Jealous

All of us probably dreamed (in childhood or even when we were older) about being able to move objects with the power of our minds, becoming invisible, or teleportation. And the numerous superhero movies of the past 10-20 years only made these wishes stronger. In reality, there are people with superpowers that make us really jealous.

We at Bright Side have found 20+ stories about people that prove that all of us are a little bit like X-Men.

  • My boss has a superpower: if someone is lying to her about being sick (food poisoning, fever, other stuff) and doesn’t come to work, she will definitely see them around town, completely healthy. I’m a bit scared of her. © “Podslushano” / Vk
  • My niece (21 years old) has an amazing skill: children in her arms fall asleep instantly. Any kid of any age. They fall asleep after 5-10 minutes if they sit on her lap. She doesn’t even rock them, they just sit. © Ckott / Pikabu
  • I play a lot of video games. And now I have this superpower: when I’m having a nightmare, I just go back to the main menu, press escape, and wake up. And some people say that video games are useless... © nikita5130 / Pikabu
  • My superpower is sleeping on planes. I almost always fall asleep right during the take off and only wake up during landing. If someone wakes me up, I’ll fall asleep within a minute. If there’s a child yelling next to me, I don’t care. Once, I got to the airport and I didn’t want to sleep, but that didn’t change anything. I slept for 3 flights in a row in an upright chair. But there’s a downside: I easily fall asleep at the wheel when driving, which is very scary. © “Podslushano” / Vk
  • It was in the evening in the area where I live. The roads were icy and there was a girl who couldn’t drive uphill. There were 4 of us and we wanted to help. My friend (who hasn’t dated a girl for a long time) easily pushes the car and the girl drives away. We said something like, “Wow, you’re strong...” And he said, “This is my superpower.” When we asked him what he meant, he said, “Scaring women away.” © MegoChP / Pikabu
  • My superpower is coming up with a genius answer to someone’s unpleasant words in an hour, day, week, year, century, era... © palnom6 / Twitter
  • My boyfriend had this superpower of leaving things right in the middle of different places: in the hallway, in the doorway, on the staircase. He’d leave anything: buckets of water, vacuum cleaners, boxes, suitcases, toolboxes. And I love moving around my house quickly — I don’t even turn on the light at night. I told him about this many times, but nothing changed. So: we broke up and to remember him, 2 of my toes are broken, and I have a scar on my forehead and a lot of minor injuries. © “Podslushano” / Vk
  • My memory is so bad that 2 years later, I have no idea what a film was about and can watch it like it’s the first time. © byterskartohoi / Pikabu
  • I remember when I was 8-10 years old, I’d go to my grandmother’s and my uncle would come over too. He’d tell me that he could become invisible, but only when it was dark. And I believed him and admired his talent. © PaRos / Pikabu
  • My superpower: going to IKEA to buy 5 things and actually leaving the store with 5 things. © korowin69 / Twitter
  • I finished school — they started renovating it. I finished college — they started renovating it. I moved to a different town — my building was renovated. I was in the hospital — after I left, they started to renovate the hospital. I’m suspicious now... © SilentHell42 / Pikabu
  • I have a superpower: next to me, devices break down, light bulbs explode, computers lag. It only works when I’m mad. I started dating an IT guy and he laughed at me, until we had a fight and his computer started to lag. When he was fired, he went to the office to sign all the paperwork and I went with him. Afterward, he was paid extra money to fix everything in the office. They thought he hacked everything that day. © “Podslushano” / Vk
  • A guy I know really feels the time. If you ask him what time it is, he’ll always tell you the time (the mistake will be within 1-2 minutes). He says that all he needs to do is look at the time in the morning and then his body just counts the time. © leo33240 / Pikabu
  • My mother-in-law turned 70 and we bought her a new smartphone but she doesn’t use the phone book app. At all. She remembers all the phone numbers by heart and always dials them. She doesn’t even use the recent calls list she made. She uses about 40 different numbers and not a single one of them is stored in the phone’s memory. © MrGerasim / Pikabu
  • I have a superpower. Whatever I like doing, someone I know will start doing in a few days. I was making handmade things — my mom has now been doing it for 3 years and I got tired a month later. My husband loves perfumes now, my friend loves base jumping, and my brother loves video games. And all of them found their hobbies days after me, even though they’d never been interested in these things before. But the saddest part is that I get other people interested and lose interest myself. © “Podslushano” / Vk
  • My superpower is losing everything. I’ve just lost a mop I was using 3 MINUTES AGO. If someone gave me the Thanos glove, he’d never find it again. © _kutsium / Twitter
  • I have this thing: I have to step on all the stairs with my right foot. I have to finish every staircase with my right foot. My mind just counts all the steps and I always know how many of them there are. I’m pretty sure it’s an obsessive-compulsive disorder, but why can’t I use it for something productive in my life? These are the superpowers of the brain, why can’t I use them? © “Podslushano” / Vk
  • Men’s superpower: In complete darkness, while sleeping and looking the other way, finding a woman’s butt and putting their hand on it. © LizKokhanova / Twitter
