Comic books are filled with superheroes that have amazing superpowers that we long to have, like flying, super speed, super strength, and so much more. With thousands of comic book super powered characters out there, it's hard to make each one fresh and unique. Every superhero can't have the same powers as Superman or Spider-Man. That would just get boring. Unfortunately, some powers the creators come up with for these characters miss the mark. What are the lamest superpowers out there?

These powers may come to good use in the right situation, but when they're up against super villains like Dr. Doom or Brainiac, their powers may not seem so "super." You can't fight off the likes of Magneto by changing the color of his cape, right Color Kid? And definitely won't defeat Darkseid with a swarm of goldfish. No hard feelings, Aquaman.

We've rounded up what we think are the worst super powers to ever have. Make sure to vote up which ones you think are the absolute lamest powers to have.

    Super Stomach Acid

    Talk about needing some antacids. Marvel character Zeitgeist has the power of stomach acid. He found out he had this power after drunkenly vomiting on his then-girlfriend and burning off her face. I guess that relationship is ruined.

    Gold Balls, a new recruit for the X-Men, has the power to project gold balls from his body. Oh, did I forget to mention they're not made of real gold...

    The Ability to Turn Into Water

    Zan from the Wonder Twins has the ability to turn into any form of water. While his sister's ability to change into any animal form can be rather useful, Zan's power is only handy in a drought or if your drink gets warm.

    Matter Consumption

    DC's Matter-Eater Lad has the ability to eat anything. Maybe he should think of changing his name to Garbage Disposal Lad.
