I was thinking about superheroes recently and it occurred to me that there are degrees of “superhero-ness”. We have Superman at the top, with his fairly comprehensive array of superpowers and virtual indestructibility. Moving down the list, we see various strengths and weaknesses until we come to Batman, who isn’t really a superhero at all, just a rich guy with some expensive toys and a thirst for revenge. It then struck me that we all fit onto the scale of superhero-ness.
If you have read SciendaQ Spring 2012, you will have encountered the extended and very specialized list of my own superpowers. What superpowers do you have?
