Now... I know what your thinking.
If everyone has superhuman powers, that makes them NOT superhuman.
Dictionary.com defines superhuman as:
above or beyond what is human; having a higher nature or greater powers than humans have: a superhuman being.
exceeding ordinary human power, achievement, experience, etc.: a superhuman effort.
While I believe majority of people do not have true superhuman powers, there is a deep potential for everyone.
My ability to read someones body language, feel out the current emotions, and sensibly predict their current state allows me to bond with someone more
strongly then another person. There are others who are able to do this to a strong extent. Have you ever met someone that you liked instantly
because they seemed to connect with you straight away?
Other examples are the obvious from Stan Lee's Super Human.
An example that comes to mind is a person who is excessively athletic, or artistic. While that in itself may not be enough to consider themselves
superhuman, there is potential from some aspect of that to defy current understanding of typical human abilities.
People are given their certain strengths, certain weaknesses, and are given them to be used to accomplish their life goals. While watching Stan
Lee's Super Human, I formed this idea, and had the weird sense that the show was meant to encourage and expose others to this concept.
Everyone has super powers. It may not be super human strength, invisibility, or the ability to fly (well, except for pilots maybe) but it is in a
subtle way powers that help guide us through and protect the Gotham City we call our Souls.
