Of all the heroes who do not have any "powers" in Marvel Universe, who do you think are the best?  Here are mine:

  • The Punisher
  • Daredevil (I don't know if he really qualifies because of his enhanced senses; but I'm putting him on there.)

Would Iron Man count?  Technically, he has no "powers" other than Extremis and his superior intellect.  I always liked Stark's ingenuity.

Does Cap count? Black Panther? What about Iron Fist? (his chi is a skill that it seems anyone can achieve with enough practice, at least according to an issue of New Avengers (forgot which one). There's also Moon Knight, Shang-Chi and Nick Fury. A lot of people push the envelope when it comes to "no powers" in Marvel.

If that was the case Dr. Strange would count.

Extremis is a strong power.

Not everyone in the Marvel U can use magic.

He's got powers now even if he got them artificially. Extremis rewrote his biology and it's a part of him now.

I was wondering about Cap but I figure he and other martial artists count as "powerless". They're physically better than the average person but they're not superhuman. Cap is specifically marked as not superhuman. I would have said no to BP but Spartan allowed another character with the same senses. I think Iron Fist (even before his upgrades) has a power. Not anyone can do what he does, he got the ability/power from Shou-Lao.

Got it....Iron Man's a NO.

I guess because Daredevil's remaining senses and balance are somewhat enhanced, it probably disqualifies him.

You made the thread so you decide.

I'm tempted to say Taskmaster but I'm not sure if he has a power or just a really good skill.

#20 Posted by Super-Buster (2358 posts) - - Show Bio

Would Echo and/or Taskmaster count? I think there are some people with their ability in real life (or else I misheard).

Well, I've actually seen blind people pull stuff like that off in real life.  I went to Louisville, Kentucky and saw a blind man who was a fifth degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do and a fourth degree black belt in Hap Ki Do.  He did a huge number of complex self-defense procedures.  The audience had to be quiet, and he could hear from where his opponent was coming from with a knife.  Just like that, he disarmed his oppenent and knew where he knife was exactly.  I've seen people be able to do that in real life.

So......I'm going to keep Daredevil on there, lol.

The same could be said of Bullseye.

Someone made a thread about real life super powers. There was guy who was blind and made clicking noises as he walked and he could tell where most things were. Like when he past a garbage can he knew it was there and what it was.

Yup.

Taskmaster/Echo and Bullseye have their abilities described as skills, not powers.

I thought Nick Fury does have a power. His aging is slowed down. (I thought that count as a power)

What about War Machine and Hawkeye

Moon Knight (He lost them) Hawkeye (Had them but lost them and how has nobody mention him?) Elektra (I don't think she has powers)

#33 Posted by Buckshot (18915 posts) - - Show Bio

War Machine is a cyborg now, but Hawkeye seems fine.

Would all the mutants who lost their powers after M-Day count? I mean I don't see why not.
