Available Formats




In this age of economic downturn and global strife, when all that seemed powerful in the past has balked in the face of challenge, what we really need are heroes possessing powers so FATHOMABLE, so UNEXCEPTIONAL, so MERELY ADEQUATE, that they could only be deemed “SUPERUSELESS.”

Behold! The world’s WORST and MOST POINTLESS superpowers have come:

IN-FLIGHT FLIGHT: The ability to fly, but only while inside an airplane that’s already flying.
13TH BULLET BULLETPROOF: The ability to deflect the 13th bullet that hits you.
THE POWERPOINTER: The ability to turn any situation into a graph.
FLAWGIC: The ability to have flawless logic when arguing with your girlfriend.
