Weigh In - Superheroes in Training

Invulnerability, X-ray vision, super-speed, and the ability to fly are some of legendary superhero Superman’s extraordinary powers. However, while Superman
was able to dodge death by bullets, knives and even fire — and it took a hunk of...

...kryptonite to harm him — he still had some of the qualities of mortal man.



Superpowers are something that we have all aspired to have at some point in time. Whether to heal the sick or just to have the best party trick, having a superpower would definitely be awesome! But though it would be great to be able to leap a tall building in a single bound and dress in a flashy costume, the fact remains that superheroes have their daily problems, too. For example, superheroes are always taking risks. Plus, they are never able to have their own personal relationships because they are too busy fighting crime.



Pitfalls aside, being able to make yourself invisible and having the ability to fly would definitely be cool skills to have. Living in Monmouth hit the streets to find out which superhero powers people would like to have if they could and why. Take a look!
