Superhuman vs Supernatual Powers

Hello Everyone,

It has been awhile since I have had a moment to share with you my random musings. This week we will discuss Superhuman Powers vs Supernatural Powers. Which one would you choose?

Superhuman powers are powers that are more advanced than the average human. Such as super strength, super speed, invulnerability, telekinesis, teleportation, projection of beams and force fields, and even flight. You can think of your typical super hero when you think of super human powers. An easy example will be Superman, X-Men, and Spiderman. The question for another discussion is should Superman even count because he is from another planet and is not technically human?

Supernatural powers are basically something that defies the laws of physics and exists beyond the nature. In this category you will find Witches, Wizards, Warlocks, Vampires, Sidhe, Werewolves/shifters, Succubus/Incubus and the such.

I am sure we can all think of some famous Wizards like Harry Potter, Vampires like Dracula, Werewolves – Michael J. Fox, and so on. Oh Sidhe are the Fair Folk aka Fairies.

Okay now that I have defined it all out for you and explained the difference, I would like to now cast my vote. I choose Supernatural Powers. I would choose the Sidhe because I can have a combination of powers such as long life, magic, shapeshifting, etc. I believe superhuman powers are more limited. I do not want to live forever like Vampires so choosing the Sidhe that live a long life but still die works for me. My weakness is Iron so I would have to be careful of that. I like the concept of magic though not being able to lie would be a drawback but I will just work around it like they do.

So what would you choose Supernatural or Superhuman Powers? Leave a comment below.
