Some superpowers are just not worth using. They don't drive you mad, you can work them fine, but why the Hell would you want the? A power that makes bottomless pits appear under your own feet would be this, or a power that makes you feel other peoples' negative emotions only, or one that lights everything around you on fire--including you.
