Top Seven Superpowers That Would Actually Suck to Have

There's no doubt that most of us have fantasized at one point or another about possessing some kind of superhuman ability. Even though it would seem rad to have one or more of these special gifts, most of us haven't actually considered the real-life consequences of living as a superhero or supervillain stuck with an earthly power.

7. Invisibility (Invisible Woman)

As cool as it sounds, invisibility is one of the lamest superpowers around. Yes, you can spy on whomever you like and occasionally sneak into the girls locker room, but when it comes to fighting crime and getting the job done, invisibility kinda blows the big one.

The main reasoning behind why invisibility would suck is based simply on the fact that it would be a tease compared to almost every other superpower in existence. Invisible Woman Sue Strom does have a few other supertricks up her sleeve like protective invisible shields and whatnot, but if she could only render herself invisible, mama never would have made it past the first edition. Could you imagine being on a crack team of crime fighters and legitimately being the weakest link? It would undoubtedly be the worst thing ever and could easily lead to mutant depression.

6. Obese Power (The Blob)

Living most of your life as a villain can't be easy, but when you're as large as the Blob (Frederick "Fred" J. Dukes) there's no question that being a morbidly obese circus freak is easier said than done.

I've watched numerous documentaries about some of the most famous big men in the history of professional wrestling and I can tell you that just traveling can be a tedious exercise. Now imagine being as big as Frederick "Fred" J. Dukes. Even with all the powers that come along with his size, very few of us would actually like to walk in the Blob's extremely wide shoes. The Blob's blubbery skin has been near impossible to penetrate over the years, but living life as one of the most grotesque and gross supervillains ever has to majorly suck.

(This is a reality show waiting to happen, by the way.)

5. Rock-Like Skin (Thing)

Easily one of the most beloved comic book characters around, founding Fantastic Four member The Thing hasn't had it all that easy in terms of his cosmic radiated skin.

Benjamin Jacob Grimm has had some epic battles throughout his legendary career and his insane strength, stamina, and durability were the key factors to most of his victories. While it would be tight to acquire one or more of these abilities, the rock-like skin is where most of us would want to draw the line. Clark Kent and many other superheroes, even Hulk, have had the option to hide their superhero identities from the general public. Sadly, The Thing has never had that privilege. The live-action Fantastic Four flick from a few years back tackled this very subject in the film.

As a kid I always wanted to be The Thing, but as I got older and really started to think about it, being a giant walking boulder doesn't sound all that appealing even with the superhuman strength and rad one-liners. The man can't even really enjoy the superstar status of a superhero. S***, you try gettin' laid with a penis made of rock.

4. Shooting Concussive Force Rays from Your Eyeballs (Cyclops)

If you're a die-hard fan of the X-Men series like me, you damn well know that it kinda sucks to be Cyclops. Not only is he a lame dork who gets hated on constantly due to his distaste for Wolverine, Cyclops also has the unfortunate luck of being 'blessed' with one of the most inconvenient superpowers in all of comics.

Being able to shoot concussive force rays from your eyeballs may seem rad at first glance, but living with the handicaps it causes day to day is nothing short of debilitating. How many times have we seen Scott Summers get his special sunglasses knocked off and accidentally torch anyone and everyone in a 20-foot radius? Too many. Even the idea of having sex with Jean Grey sounds like a very dangerous process. Screw STDs, Cyclops is the real killer in the sack.
