I'd like to work on the usefulness of apparently dumb powers
Let's take The Kid
For example if he was in a super hero setting. He'd have the ability to explode into a a million pieces whenever he is hurt by anything. BUT, he'd revive somewhere else unharmed, and keep doing it over and over out of sheer force of will
. So technically he is virtualy indestructible , but not in the traditional sense, he will keep coming back from the dead unless he gives up or loses hope, that of course at the price of fragility beyond belief.
Or how about this guy from this show /comic I can't remember who talked to germs, sounds incredibly stupid but what if you could tell a lethal bacteria "Dont hurt me or my friends, go kill the bad guy instead". Then, it suddenly becomes useful.
Tell me some other of your conclusions on dumb powers that are actually useful when analyzed. Come up with some woo, it will be fun.
