If you ever wondered what the world would be like with real-life superheroes, you need not ponder any longer. It turns out they exist, but they aren’t exactly decked out in spandex saving the helpless from burning buildings. People with real superpowers appeared since the dawn of the 20th century, and their abilities rival even those of some of your favorite characters. One real superhero used their abilities at the Olympics, while another simply climbs whatever structure they find, laws against buildering be d*mned!
The most fascinating aspect about these real-life superheroes on this list is they’re largely just normal people with incredible gifts. Sure, a couple of the men and women with real-life superpowers used their abilities to gain fame and fortune, but most of them lead normal lives, albeit with abnormal abilities.
