So in my search for all the weird powers I can find (thank you L.O.SH!), Brainiac is frequently mentioned. And his power is 12th level intelligence. What does that even mean? And how is that even a power? I mean yeah, he can do amazing calculations. His memory thing that allows him to remember the first meetings of three different Legions is pretty cool though.

Not going to lie, some of the X-Men make me think ‘Say whaaaat?’ and Cypher is the one who, in my opinion, takes the cake. His real name is Doug Ramsey and in an attempt to make him likeable, he is/was a friend of Kitty Pryde. And then after a long life full of the angst that being a mutant is, he died. But then stupid Selene and Eli Bard had to friggin resurrect him. And his power that makes fans face palm? He’s a glorified translator. Don’t we have computer programs for that? But then again, do the X-Men ever do anything realistically? No.
So maybe it’s because I just got done with Drug Week at school (no, we do not use drugs, we learn about them) but I found this hilarious. Command Kid can create hallucinations. Heh.
Troy Stewart, aka Tyroc, is the only resident of Marzal. Marzal usually existed in a different dimension, but would sometimes appear back on Earth and stay there for a few years. At first Tyroc resisted joining the Legion, but eventually caved. At first his scream was reality warping (which is what earned him this post), but more recently his powers have been treated similarly to Banshee, Black Canary, Siryn, ect. When his screams were reality warping, there were different screams for different effects.
You would think with a name like Star Boy his powers would have something to do with light or, ya know, stars. But Thom Kallor’s powers have nothing to do with stars or light. His powers are increasing the mass, density, or gravity of an object. As any chemistry teacher will tell you, this violates first law of thermodynamics. What could you do with that, crush someone with a boulder. Must be really creative with his power. Thom has been in all of the renicarnations of the Legion.
