List of superhuman features and abilities in fiction

I believe almost all children dream of possessing superhuman powers such as becoming invisible. Well thanks to a wikipedia website, I had lots of fun dreaming up superpowers I'd like to have. Here's my list:
  • Accelerated healing - heal rapidly from any injury, can sometimes result in the slowing of aging
  • Animation - bring inanimate objects to life (this would fit in nicely with my magazine)
  • Body part substitution - replace one's limbs or other body parts with those of another.
  • Duplication, physical - create physical duplicates of oneself
  • Flight - lift off the ground, ride air currents or fly self-propelled through the air
  • Invisibility- render the user unseen to the naked eye
  • Merging - temporarily merge two beings into a single being (hmm, I believe it's called birth)
  • Superhuman breath - inhale/exhale...create gale force winds or freezing temperatures
  • Superhuman senses - see, smell, taste, feel and/or hear more than a normal human
  • Telescopic or microscopic vision - magnify vision to various levels
  • Time travel - travel back or forth through time
You will find examples of characters who have these powers, links, and reference notes.
