10 Superpowers You Won’t Believe Actually Exist

“If you could have any superpower, what would it be?” That question is asked among almost all boys and girls. Why is it such a common thought? The answer is simple, because from a young age, thanks to comic books, cartoons, movies, television, and even anime, nearly everyone is introduced to the concept of superpowers. Having been introduced to these concepts from so young, the idea of having superpowers is still a wish nearly everyone has. It's that wish that is responsible for the popularity and success of the superhero movies and television shows. Through those entertainment mediums, ordinary people get to witness superpowers come to life.

What many people do not know, however, is that certain real-life individuals have actual abilities that can be classified as superpowers. These abilities are not as impressive as super speed, telekinesis, flight, or teleportation, and they do not carry the destructive force associated with super strength, weather/elemental manipulation, or eye lasers; but they are still abilities that an average person is certainly unable to accomplish.

Our world is far more grounded than the fictional worlds in which most superpowers exist, so it only makes sense that the abilities in our world are more grounded as well. Here is a list of 10 Superpowers You Won’t Believe Actually Exist.

10 Extreme Photographic Memory


9 Super Enhanced Stamina


8 Powerful Eagle Vision


7 Body Temperature Manipulation

6 Animal Communication

5 Total Body Magnetization

4 Dangerous Matter Ingestion

3 Acute Sonar Vision

2 Superhuman Reflexes

1 The Iceman

No, this entry does not mean that there is someone in the world who can turn into or manipulate ice; it also does not mean that there is someone like Mr. Freeze out there who uses ice in a gun. Wim Ice-Man Hof is impervious to the cold. Thanks to a breathing technique that Hof uses, his body does not feel the cold in the same way a normal person does, which is why he currently holds multiple records, including swimming under ice water for the longest period of time. Hof has also climbed both Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Everest while wearing nothing but bike shorts, and returned virtually unharmed; a feat that is quite impressive considering that temperatures on Everest can fall way below -35 degrees Celsius. Such temperatures would ordinarily kill a normal person not wearing the proper gear.
