World’s Worst Superheroes – All *Your* Awesome Answers!

Hello all! I have a bit of a surprise post today- both for me and you- because this post is somewhat unplanned. Last week in my Reverse Q&A I asked the question “If you were the world’s worst superhero, what would your superpower be?” Your answers were all HILARIOUS! And at the lovely Katie @Never Not Reading’s suggestion, I decided to share all of them in a BIG BUMPER post! Everyone featured is linked to their blog, so you can check out all their amazing content! Plus, since it’s only fair, I’ll be giving my own answer at the end! Enjoy! 😉

Michael K @Tales from the Galactic Empires

I would save the world by turning people into bookworms!

matilda books
Yup, pretty confident that would save the world…

Daley Downing

My superpower would be remembering important stuff for other people, but not myself.

Everyday Strange

Can only read the minds of cats

Some “people” might not be happy about this…


I could read a book in one glance but then would forget it. If I read it regularly, THEN I could remember it.

Book Beach Bunny

Bring all book worlds to life (which isn’t really lame but still…)

Suziey Bravo @Of all the books in all the libraries

Hm. Invisibility. Except not full invisibility. There’s a glimmering glow. Think Edward in Twilight lol


The Cozy Pages

The ability to read ten books a day regardless of size

Kelly @Another Book in the Wall

It would be the ability to remember everything except what’s important.

Vera @Unfiltered Tales

Mind control


Omg, it would have to be something with healing, but…. all I want to do is be able to fly! Haha

Norrie @Reading Under the Blankie

Prolly setting fires to random things, randomly… by accident


Beth @Reading Every Night

I’d want some kind of teleportation power, just because I’m kinda lazy

Kim @By Hook or by Book

A Speedster (I have fibro, neuropathy and am a total klutz, so being like the Flash wouldn’t be pretty!)


Tumbling into Wonderland

Touch people and make them orgasm. Although, some people might not consider that the worst super power…

Samantha Duffy @Modern Witch’s Bookshelf

I am going to take a page out of my nerdish book and say my powers in my current D&D campaign; healing

Kristin Kraves Books

The power to be invisible but only when no one is looking- I feel like that would be a useless superpower!


Marina @Books of Magic

My power would be constantly reminding people of the things they need to do, like *zap* wash the dishes Jack.  *zap* pick up the dog poo Sally *zap* write your blog posts

Kerri @Carolina Book Belle

I would be able to make annoying songs get stuck in people’s head (Baby by Justin Bieber forever!)

Tell me who doesn’t have this song in their head now? Her power works already!

Holly @Inkspy

Can detect marshmallow, but only when it’s five metres away. No more, no less.

Detecting the perpetrators of silent farts in packed public places

Briana @Pages Unbound

Able to read 24/7 and not needing sleep

Maddie @Of Reading and Random Things

I’d probably have the ability to breathe underwater but end up living in the desert, or the ability to overthink even more than I already do haha

Carrie @Cat On the Bookshelf

Remembering the name of that song that was stuck in your head two songs ago.


Sleeping 😂

Katie @Never Not Reading

I’m going to have to go with a classic Who’s Line is it Anyway joke: Captain Obvious.

Being able to summon fruit whenever and wherever

The Paperback Piano

Being able to inflate balloons hahaha, I have no idea?


Birdie Bookworm

The Ostrich (because I like to bury my head in the sand)

Marie @Drizzle and Hurricane Books

WORST? Hmmm, being able to appear in the middle of the room at the most awkward moments?

walk in walk out

Adrienne Morris @Middle May Books

Being such a bitchy drama queen that villains would run for the hills.

Kat Impossible @Life and Other Disasters

I would be able to transform into a goldfish or miniature hamster or any kind of small useless animal. (My only real quality would be that I could always escape through tiny cracks)

Perfectly Tolerable

Running Away

run away

Aurora Librialis

My superpower would be making all cats want to cuddle me.

Word Craft

Tough tough …. Knitting.

Liis @Cover to Cover

Oh, hmm… knitting… I could knit woolly socks and jumpers and maybe get the villains to wear them and when they do they get so comfy they won’t want to villain anymore?


Jackie B @Death By Tsudonku

To give people eye crusties at will.

Kristen @Metaphors and Moonlight

Anytime there’s a prize wheel where you spin and get a prize, I almost always get the best prize lol. So I guess I’d be Prize Wheel Spinner Girl

wheel spin

Whit Reads Lit

Maybe making things smelly?

Frost at Midnight

Haha! If I truly were a horrible superhero, I would make everyone put their thoughts into words and let them say it out loud. No diplomacy and sugar coating things.

Midsize Anxiety

Glow in the dark uncontrollably (where flashlights are omnipresent; plus it may be a severe disadvantage when you want to hide from the enemy), restore electric power (we have power banks!), knowing people’s locations (we have GPS).

Shae @Cade Under Books

I would wake up precisely when a movie’s credits rolled… and the bad guys were attacking WOO SUPERHERO TIME

wake up

Nicole @Bookwyrm Knits

Knitting at consistent tension, LOL

Annnd now time for my response…. I thought long and hard and realised that there could be only one answer: the ability to steal bananas from anywhere at will- for instance you could be enjoying a banana on the other side of the world and *ping* it’s mine (I have a feeling this is becoming more of the worst supervillain power but whatever…) And my name would be the BANANA BANDIT!!

If you didn’t answer, what your worst superpower be? And if you did, which ones do you think could make the best “worst superheroes” team up? Let me know in the comments!

    1. I’ve heard there are people who end up losing their jobs because they have a song stuck in their head for years and it makes them unable to focus. I still have the theme song from The Smurfs cartoon stuck in my head but I still manage to function.

  1. Haha. It was hilarious! 😂 Love the super powers involving cats. But i think the inside of my cat’s brain is a scary place, so I’d rather not know what he’s plotting all day… 😹

  2. Maybe we can set Anti-Avengers and write a book about them? Hilarious answers, I enjoyed reading through them all, so much fun.
    And love your stealing bananas 🍌 power as well lol! 😂

  3. What a fantastic start to my morning! Hahaha, all of the answers made me giggle hard and I loved some of the more ‘unique’ ones 😀 Eye crusts, cats and Bieber songs?
    Honestly- I like this gang of people- my faith in the world has been restored 😀

  4. Pwahahaha this was hilarious! I think making people orgasm, appearing at the most awkward moments, and being such a bitch that the villains of the world flee takes the cake for me, although being a banana bandit would be pretty awesome too. 😀 Awesome idea for a post!

  5. What a fantastic way of showcasing your followers! So funny it made my morning. Did you know I once actually slipped on a banana peel? I was the one who threw it in the garden and forgot it was there! They ARE slippery!

  6. This is awesome! Thanks for gathering them all together and linking back to me 😀

    If I were to create a superhero team from the ones mentioned I would gather all those with reading related abilities and call them the “Super Book Club”, or the “National Readers League” or something cool haha I am bad with naming things

  7. Oh I love all of these answers and I have to say some of these powers would come in really handy; like being able to fly and survive on only two hours sleep (I feel like I already try and do that one without the superpower). But oh I would LOVE the ability to read ten books a day and bring bookish worlds to live, who wouldn’t right?
    Great post. 🙂 ❤

  8. Ahaha I see I’m too tardy for the party on this because of my unintentional hiatus but I love everyone’s responses and I love the idea of a reverse Q&A!

    The Banana Bandit could totally be the arch nemesis of Bananaman (is Bananaman before your time? Google it 😂). You could be part of a great reboot!

      1. Haha 80’s cartoons are the best! I’m ok thanks, just reading slump + busy = one neglected blog. I’ll be back on it this week 😊. Thanks for asking 💙💚💛🖤❤️


  9. These are hilarious. It’s hard to pick a favorite. But the one about inflating balloons and the running backwards at mediocre speeds, made me laugh very hard. What a fun post!

  10. I don’t know what my worst super power would be. I feel like it would probably have to be food related or something but I don’t know. Very entertaining post however! 🙂

  11. This was hilarious reading! All are creative. An awesome list of super powers, but yours is my favorite. 😂😂😂 I have no idea what mine would be! 🤣💜 Something healing perhaps. Great post!

  12. Such great answers! I’d definitely take one of the reading faster ones if I could 😀

    Btw Kristin’s answer of being only invisible if people aren’t looking reminded me of the film Mystery Men – there was a character called Invisible Boy with exactly that superpower and it actually came in handy in an amusing way toward the end of the film (he gets past a motion sensor laser thing but everyone has to not look at him while he does). I thought it was pretty funny they managed to make a seemingly useless power useful!
