Written by

What if Magneto, Wolverine, Professor X and Gambit were real? Well, they might be. Sort of. Here are a few people with miraculous super powers.

Peter Quinn is that you?


A Russian woman named Natasha Demkina claims to have X-ray vision allowing her to see inside people’s bodies. Just like an X-ray machine, she is able to detect broken bones. Natasha was a normal kid up until the age of ten when her abilities began to manifest. “I was at home with my mother and suddenly I had a vision. I could see inside my mother’s body and I started telling her about the organs I could see. Now, I have to switch from my regular vision to what I call medical vision. For a fraction of a second, I see a colorful picture inside the person and then I start to analyze it.”

Magneto is that you?


Liew Thow Lin is known around the world as The Magnetized Man. The 70-year-old walking-talking magnet can stick metal objects into his body. Although scientists cannot detect anything going on with the magnetics of his body, he is able to hold and balance metal objects on his skin.

Reed Richards is that you?

Daniel Browning Smith 01

Daniel Browning Smith, aka Rubberboy, has been named the most flexible man alive. The Guinness World Records holder is flexible enough to dislocate his arms in order to fit through an unstrung tennis racket!

Daredevil is that you?

Ben Underwood

Ben Underwood is an extraordinary person with the ability to see using Human Echolocation. He is completely blind but is able to make clicking sounds using his mouth and judge the echo produced to understand his surroundings and any obstacles in his path. This unique ability has allowed Ben to walk around without any assistance, ride his bike and have other normal childhood experiences.

Iceman is that you?


He climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Everest in a shorts, broke records by swimming under ice water, and ran half a marathon in the desert without drinking. Who is this guy? Wim Hof is a man in his 50s who has pushed the limits of his body. He currently holds 20 Guinness World Records.

Taskmaster is that you?


Isao Machii is a Japanese Iaido master who has the quickest reflexes in the world. He holds many world records for his quick sword skills. Rather than seeing an item move through the air, he can anticipate the exact location of the item at any given moment with incredible accuracy. He uses this talent to chop items out of the air using his Katana for people’s entertainment.

Professor X is that you?


Stephen Wiltshire is a British architectural artist who can look at a landscape once and then draw it with perfect accuracy. “He frequently draws entire cities from memory, based on double, brief helicopter rides. For example, he produced a detailed drawing of four square miles of London after a single helicopter ride above that city. His nineteen-foot-long drawing of 305 square miles of New York City is based on a single twenty-minute helicopter ride”

Super Commando Dhruva is that you?


Kevin Richardson is a South African animal behaviorist who had been accepted into several lion prides and clans of hyenas. Kevin Richardson has become so close to wild animals such as Lions, cheetahs and Hyenas that they treat him as their own!
