For many of us, superheroes play an important role in our childhood, as well as when we’re adults. From comic books to the big screen, they entertain us, inspire us and can help to get those creative juices flowing when we’re looking for a push. Now, we’ve looked at people with superpowers in previous videos. This time around, we’re going to show you 10 individuals who gained powers after enduring some sort of accident or other event.
We’ll start off with Franco Magnani who could suddenly remember the past with such stunning clarity that his artwork was a near-perfect representation of locations from Italy. Derek Amato could suddenly play the piano and compose music after suffering a concussion – despite the fact he had never touched a keyboard in his life. While still in the womb, Kimberly Gordon was given a serious jolt when her mom was struck by lightning. Even after being born, the result of this incident is pretty obvious. On his way home Nikolai Kryaglyachenko received a nasty shock from a live wire. Incredibly, as a result, metal objects can stick to his body. When Rory Curtis awoke from a coma following a car crash, he could speak French fluently, along with one other bonus ‘power.’ After receiving a brutal beating outside a bar, Jason Padgett suddenly developed amazing abilities when it came to art and math. Edwin Robinson was blind and partially deaf – until lightning struck. After this he seemingly developed the ability to rejuvenate his eyes and ears to near-full working order. Surgeon Tony Cicoria also suffered a lightning strike which led to an out of body experience – and, of course, a superpower. When he was hit in the head at a baseball game, Orlando Serrell didn’t think anything of it. Then he realized he was able to remember pretty much everything about every day in his past with crystal clarity. Finally, when Adam Rainer was born with dwarfism people thought that was that. Then a small tumor changed everything in a big, big way!
