The Top 10 Sexiest Superpowers

by spike.com   October 08, 2009 at 10:00AM  |  Views: 10,634

If you could have any superpower, what would it be? Some would become the embodiment of truth and justice, while others would opt for the evil mastermind route. Most of us would answer with plain, old selfishness. And this can't be a bad thing, because a number of comic book characters out there have succumbed to the same temptations most of us would. One of the most popular persuasions, other than wealth, is sex. The following comic book characters all possess powers we'd either want for ourselves or hope to encounter in the objects of our desires.

10. Elasti-Girl (Rita Farr)

Too short?  Too tall?  Doesn't matter.  With a girl like Rita Farr, height is an issue of the past. Oddly, Elasti-Girl's powers are not stretchy limbs like you would think.  Rita Farr was an ex-Olympian turned Hollywood actress who was exposed to volcanic gasses while filming in Africa. The gasses altered her body's structure, allowing her to grow and shrink at will. We nominated Elasti-Girl for the spot because unlike the Atom or Garganta, Elasti-Girl could shrink or grow. In addition to this variance, Farr later learned to hone her powers so that she could adjust the size of any part of her body at will. Z-cups, anyone?

9. The Enchantress

The Enchantress, Amora, was a favorite villain of Thor's who certainly knew how to wield a sexy power or two. From a young age, The Enchantress sought to learn the secrets of magic by seducing her masters. As an Asgardian, The Enchantress is immortally young and has utilized her powers to augment her beauty and charm. She can hold any man in thrall for about a week with only a mere kiss. Her powers of attraction are second to none, requiring god-like resolve like that of Thor's to even hope to resist her.

 8. Superman (Clark Kent)

Superman is one of the pillars of the comic universe and possesses an epic array of powers. In addition to the strength and the flight and the frost breath, Supe also has a little trick that has no doubt served him well: x-ray vision. Yes, x-ray specs have helped Superman to see that bomb hidden behind five layers of concrete, and yes, x-ray vision has more than likely helped Superman to find a restrained prisoner in a series of cells...but x-ray vision has also helped Superman to see what's under Lois Lane's dress. So unless lead underwear hits the streets of Metropolis, x-ray vision will serve Superman again and again.

7. Glitter (Stephanie Harrington)

Sometimes, it just comes down to endurance. This is absolutely not a problem for the heroine Glitter. Stephanie was your normal, average housewife. Shortly after The White Event, one of Marvel's many cataclysms, Harrington began to notice her powers. Her body began to produce an energy that allowed Harrington to participate in activities of extreme physical exertion for incredibly long periods of time without tiring as well as doubling her reaction time. Anyone close enough to her begins to receive the same superhuman traits. Clearly, the option for two people to engage in extreme physical exertion for long periods of time is much, much better than just Glitter. There are certainly enough commercials out there to keep reminding us.

 6. Mirage (Danielle Moonstar)

The Native American mutant known as Mirage (originally codenamed Psyche) truly demonstrates that sometimes the sexy isn't in the power, but how it's used.  Danielle Moonstar was an early addition to Professor Xavier's New Mutants. She possessed a tumultuous ability to manifest people's emotions into incredibly realistic illusions. At first, the illusions would often take the forms of her subjects' worst fears. However, later, with some training and control, Mirage was able to project her subjects' deepest desires. Obviously, there are a variety of applications. Talk about setting the mood.
