List Rules Vote up the most desirable super abilities

List of the best superpowers we all wish we had as voted by the Ranker community. This list of superpowers includes anything we've seen in movies, read in comics, or dreamt up ourselves. Just think about how life-changing it would be to have cool super powers. Have you ever been sitting in traffic and wished that you could just fly to work? Or have you had to run through the airport to catch your plane and thought of how great it would be to just teleport where you wanted to go? Maybe you'd just want to be able to know what your partner is thinking for once. Superhero powers can come in handy, but just remember Uncle Ben's famous words, "With great power, comes great responsibility."

The most-wanted super powers improve our everyday lives or allow us to become a little greater than we are. If you've ever been jealous of superheroes and their different types of awesome super powers, fantasize with this list. You can use this list of superpowers, a-z, to dream of how your life could be. Share this with your friends and add whatever cool superpowers you wish you had. 

This is a list of the best superpowers we wish were real. Vote up your favorite and add any that aren't listed yet.
