Top 10 Best and Coolest X-men Powers

Updated on September 5, 2012

I know there was one point in your life were you imagine to be a superhero of some sort. When I was just a kid, I used to ran around the house, imagining that no one can see me because I'm invisible girl. Yet, my dad would spoil the moment and give me a hug. How can someone hug an invisible girl? Oh well, enough of my child stories, here are my list of top 10 superhero powers.The ranking is not based on how cool or strong they are but on how they can be very useful in certain situations. Enjoy reading!

Mind Reading

This is certainly the best! It would be very cool if you can read someone's mind to know what they are thinking of you. So no one can backbite you with this awesome power! You can also avoid any danger by reading someone's mind. If a person intends to do harm on you, it is very easy to dodge his attacks as you know where they will come. Could you imagine if a boxer have such a power? Moreover, you can also use this power in winning a quiz show! Having this kind of power will definitely make things easier for you.

One more thing, you can also avoid being scolded by your mom with this power in your arsenal. You can obey her commands even before she say it to you. How's that for obedience? This power will help you become a good son/daughter, student, parent, worker and of course the best boxer!

Pass Through Walls

There are several situations where this power can be very useful but the most important of all is when you want to run from someone. No one can literally chase you with such a power unless he has Flash-like speed. Furthermore, it can also help you avoid things that your wife might throw at you during fights. Do you find it hard to avoid the plates, vases and other stuffs she usually throw at you? Worry no more because with this power, you can just stand and watch her be annoyed as all of it will just pass through you.

This power is specifically best for police officers. Can you imagine if the S.W.A.T have this kind of power? They can infiltrate a room full of goons in an instant and there is no way for bullets to hit them. How cool is that?

However, this is only good if you can control your powers. This power can spoil the moment if you can't use it properly. Good luck hugging your girlfriend if you'll just pass through her.

Instant Teleportation

This is a power I really want to have when I'm in a very embarrassing situation. This power is also perfect for those who want to save a lot of cash from transportation bills. You can just teleport your way from home to your office or class. And of course, there is no way for you to be late with such an amazing power.

This power is the best one for mailmen. Delivering thousands of mails a day can be pretty easy if you can just teleport from one home after another. It will definitely save you both time and effort.

However, this power can be very dangerous if gifted to the wrong person. Can you imagine a robber having such a power? There is no way for police officers to catch up with him aside from the fact that he can steal almost anything in just a blink of an eye!


Have you wished to be in two places at the same time? With this power in your hands, its definitely possible? This is by far the coolest power for students! You can go have some fun while your copy goes to school. You can date your hot neighbor, play Frisbee, go to the beach, hangout with friends,clean your room, be on a trip with your family,do your assignments, make some cool hubs, all at the same time! You can become the ultimate human multi-tasker!

This power is also handy if you are into sports like football, soccer or basketball. Say goodbye to times where you ran out of teammates because you can be literally a one-man team! You can also win a lot of dancing contests with the use of this power. No need to wear masks like the Jabbawockeez do!


This is the COOLEST power of all. I meant that literally. No more hot days for you and your family. You can slice of electricity bills with this amazing power power as you dump your air-condition and freeze the whole house. Do you love ice skating? Well, you can just freeze a lake and do it there! You can also make some cash out of this power by selling some icy treats.

This power is perfect for those who live in the tropics and want to get out of the heat every once in a while. Ice sculptors can also benefit from such a power. No need purchase a block of ice and hurry in forming it to an art before it melts. Personally, I wished to have this kind of power when my mother asked me to buy a gallon of icecream on the department store and she scolded me after I got home with a melted one. Of course, the line in all of the counters was so long that I have to wait for approx. 30 minutes for my turn. If I had the power to freeze anything, the icecream won't melt and I can also freeze my mom's head to stop it from heating up! That's hitting two birds with one stone!


This power might be weird but it can make you rich! Imagine how much coin you can get if you try to use it! However, I know it can be dangerous as well because metal plates, pans and other stuffs will also come at you. I consider this one of the best X-men powers mainly because it can stop any war! Getting all the guns and ammunition of both sides will certainly solve the issue. They can punch their way to win the war but that would be crazy. Say goodbye to battleships, tanks and other destructive inventions of men. If God gave me this power, we can all say hello to a much peaceful and simpler world!

Brilliant Mind

Are you failing in class? Worry no more if you'll be gifted with this kind of power! Being top in class and having a better life is certainly easy if you have superhuman thinking power! There are basically three things which a man should have so that we can say he is successful which are money, hot wife and a perfect health. Money is very easy if you have a brilliant mind. You can have multiple professions as you can pass any exam in a breeze. Participate on game shows and win them all! Use your brainpower to win mind games such as chess! You can also be Mathematician and create problems which can make even the best in the world sweat hard in search for an answer. Invent robots and other gadgets from scrap and sell them in a high price! The possibilities are endless and you can be a millionaire in a matter of days! Getting the best girl in town is not a problem at all. As long as you have the money to support her needs and a good attitude, there is no way any girl can resist. You can easily read through a girl's actions knowing that you have a very brilliant mind to analyze any give situation. Lastly, perfect health can be yours because you are so intelligent that you can even create your own remedies for various diseases and conditions. You can invent a pill to stop aging or a machine which can recharge your energy, so health is definitely not a problem.

Super Strength

Would it be cool if you can lift, throw and knock-off anything? I dreamed of becoming the strongest girl to save mankind from any foe when I was just a kid and I think of it now as a very cool way to do good to others. You can help others in moving. Lift their cabinets, appliances and other stuffs with ease. This power is also a good way to aid traffic enforcers move vehicles involved in a road accident to let traffic run smoothly once more.

Do you wanna win the UFC? This power will certainly make you a big star! You can win easily with so much power in your punches and kicks. I know its cheating but there is nothing wrong with using your "talent". hehe

Control Weather

Would it be awesome if you can control weather and make it rain just to stop your P.E class? Or make it sunny if you want to go out and play football! Having the power to control weather is definitely one of the best powers. You can use it to make it snow if you miss snowballs and creating a snowman.

Probably the most interesting application for such kind of power is when you are farming and a drought is killing your vegetables. You can command the sky to water your plants through rain. Imagine how much crops you can save with such an amazing power. Another thing, if you want to get rid of your annoying neighbor, a couple of lightning bolts on their house would solve your problem.


Burn baby! Burn! This power is definitely among the best. I can give you a couple of situations where this power can be very handy. First, having the ability to create fire in your hands is really cool if you are in a cave or in dark places. Flashlights are good but their batteries will eventually drain out. Torches are decent solutions but they won't even last a day. Why bother if you can use your finger to light things up? Second, you can barbecue and grill anything with ease. You can be the star in camping trips! Third, you can keep your home warm during cold days as well without spending so much on logs and fuel.Fourth, you can slice off a considerable amount off your bills by getting rid of gas bills! Lastly, this power is perfect in exterminating your annoying neighbor as well. HAHA. Burn baby! BURN!

      Love it, although I hope they are not ranked in order. I would state that we saw in X-3 what happened when pyro went up against ice man. And I would also argue that a brilliant mind, fire, or strengh would be helpless against magneto.

      Awesome hub none the less. Voted up.

      Great choices of some pretty awesome X-men powers. I think if I could choose one to have in real life it would either be shapeshifting or mind control. I'd probably prefer shapeshifting the most tho. Imagine how cool it would be to take on anyone's form. You could never ever get caught! :D Great article. Rated up and awesome.

      Have you seen "Epic Movies"? I really loled hard on how the movie used Mystiques power on a bed scene where the boy demands what features to change and she ended up being so fat. HAHA. Anyways, Mystique is one of X-men's strongest enemy. Although there were some episodes where she almost joined X-men. And I certainly agree about her ability being so useful.

      Thanks for liking my hub!

      Have a great day!

      Pretty interesting hub here. Although you can probably add mystique to this list too, as her powers would be extremely useful too if you stop to think about. Not only can you use her powers to get away from someone, as you can easily disguise yourself as somebody else, but you can also use her powers to sneak into places you wouldn't normally be able to go by pretending to be somebody else. Like lets just say you wanted to see your favorite band backstage at a concert, then you knock out the guard and take his place just so you can talk to your favorite band. I know that's wrong, but's an option. Plus, if you're interested in knowing what it's like to be a celebrity, then you can easily turn yourself into one too. There would be no end to the possibilities with that power.

      Other than that, good hub by the way. :)
