If ordinary Boy does have a power, what could it be? Or is it possible that he doesn't have a superpower after all? If he does have a power, it might be...
    • Acute intelligence and/or a heightened sense of Common Sense. In a world filled with Bumbling Heroes, Ordinary Boy is the only person who seems to be able to use common sense to solve problems and save the day.

    • Intelligence draining, like Brain Drain. It's possible that Ordinary Boy is smarter than others around him for a reason; and that he is actually subconciously stealing their brainpower away from them without realizing it.
    • None. Ordinary Boy may be immune to the Potato Chips because of some as-of-yet unrevealed mystery.
