* The makers of ''Jumper'' actually subverted this by doing something similar to a wormhole (the "jumpscar"), which also causes a spherical explosion upon arrival [[spoiler:the lead is jumping into a hospital, and the entire room is flattened, a circular pit with the lead in the center.]] Presumably there is also an implosion upon leaving, as seen in the [[spoiler:bank robbery scene, and the money in the room starts flying after he goes back for seconds.]] there's also the scene in the end where he jumps with an [[spoiler:entire apartment, causing a veritable tornado upon departure]] (should have probably flattened the entire block, considering an implosion of that size would be enough to heat the air to several thousand degrees and explode, violently, tactical nuke style. For comparison, just look at the effect a pistol shrimp has when it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKPrGxB1Kzc snaps its claw at ~60MPH underwater]]. To quote the Website/{{Cracked}} staff: "That's like getting punched by Mike Tyson in his prime if his outstretched arm was attached to a meteor as it entered the atmosphere.")

** Alternatively, ability to ''create'' the path of least resistants and to block all others my be a useful secondary ability.

Also, they'd need a way to fight infection and other foreign substances. Having your guts spilled all over the floor would open the door to all sorts of germs and viruses, not to mention dust and such. There's a reason hospitals strive for perfect sterility. Conversely, they get infected like anyone else, but recover instantly due to the healing factor producing antibodies at an accelerated rate. That in turn would need another secondary power to prevent [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cytokine_storm cytokine storms]] destroying the body. {{Wolverine}}'s healing factor was used to develop antibodies to a deadly virus on at least one occasion. Most likely they would also have some kind of super-genome or [[IdealIllnessImmunity very good immune system]], considering that so much rapid healing and DNA replication would increase the possibility for cancer-causing genetic defects massively. This would explain ComicBook/{{Deadpool}}'s Massive scarring, since his skin is both spreading the cancer and healing the damage caused by the cancer. And, cancer aside, certain kinds of attacks could reasonably be assumed to cause genetic damage to the tissues which the regenerating tissue is growing from.

Let's not forget when things that are wrong with your body heal as they were. {{Deadpool}} gives us a pretty bad look at what happens when your [[BodyHorror healing factor heals cancerous cells]] or brain abnormalities as if they were normal healthy cells.

'''SuperSpeed''' - These characters are somehow immune to the effects of friction - specifically, the chafing that would naturally occur from using extremely rapid speed for extended periods of time, especially while wearing spandex. Again, this is only for characters that aren't explicitly described as NighInvulnerable; presumably, that would also cover friction damage. The same applies to the materials in contact with speedster, especially clothes (that should be bent to move): either [[MySuitIsAlsoSuper invulnerability is extended to them]] or they are going to be damaged and possibly disintegrated/[[FrictionBurn incinerated]]. For instance, the various speedsters of the TheDCU related to TheFlash each have a thin invisible aura that protects their bodies from air friction (and, presumably, the impact of their feet hitting the ground at several hundred miles per hour several hundred times per second). This aura also allows them to survive the rigors of outer space.

In addition, it has been pointed out that many fliers must also have some regenerative powers. Otherwise, the constant effects of the wind and airborne dust particles on exposed skin would cause premature aging. {{Storm}} for example explicitly has physical resistance to the elements and temperature extremes. Otherwise she'd have skin resembling leather and more wrinkles than women decades older due to constant exposure to fast moving wind, rain, and snow. Fliers with invulnerability get a pass, but that's it.
