Create amazing characters for your book or comic

list of superpowers

All writers at one time or another have struggled with character development for their stories. There are so many different types of superpowers and abilities to choose from. But developing the nuances of a superhero with a backstory, abilities, and moral boundaries is even more difficult. This list of SuperPowers and strategic writing tips will equip you to write well-rounded heroes or villains for your novel, comics, and movie scripts.

Is this your first time writing a fantasy fiction novel or comic? No worries! 

What You’ll Find In This Article

In this article, we provide an almost exhaustive list of the different types of superpowers that you can choose from for your character. We are also going to talk about some tips regarding superhero writing, what to do, and and other significant points!

Writing Tips for Characters with SuperPowers

Here are some of our curated tips when writing about characters with superpowers! Read on to make some progress in your writing!

  1. Can I copy an existing Character?

You cannot copy a character outright because a character name, costume and likeness can be copyrighted. However a single superpower such as flight, x-ray vision or mind control cannot be copyrighted and can and often are used for a multitude of heroes.

It’s not copying to give your character a superpower the same as another book’s character. That does not mean you’re not creative. These days, there isn’t much to write about that hasn’t been written. It’s totally up to you how you can spin your character to be someone unique. 

For example, if you want your character to be someone who can fly, that doesn’t mean you’re writing about Superman. Superman is a law-abiding hero, and you can write your character as rule-skirting slob with an entirely  different backstory! 

There are many examples of comic companies copying character ideas but if you research well there is plenty of room for you to be original even with the same list of superpowers. There’s an ample leeway with this, just make sure that at the end of the day you are convinced your character is entirely unique!

  1. Think about power-specific disadvantages

Try to project a sense of disadvantage for your characters’ list of superpowers to stir the pot and make your plot more interesting. 

If you write your story as if your characters can do everything they want without consequences or drawbacks, it would be really dull and so unrealistic that your readers can’t relate to it. 

Try to think of some situations where your characters can get in trouble with their powers and incorporate them into your story. If their actions are limited even with their list of superpowers, it makes them more relatable because everyone makes mistakes.

  1. Tinker with your characters’ personalities

When we mean tinker, we mean injecting some sort of drawbacks to your characters’ personalities that can be not directly connected to their superpowers. When you think about the personalities you want your characters to have, 

For example, you can have a character to be so confident in their abilities that they don’t have any moral boundaries anymore. Another example is creating a character that has top-tier superpowers but chooses to suppress them for fear of hurting other people. 

There are so many possibilities, so go ahead and explore them!

  1. Make your characters feel something about their powers 

Try to explore your characters’ feelings about their abilities. Are they excited about it? Are they scared? Do they feel alienated by the people around them? In the same vein, introduce some secondary characters that they can talk to about that, in a way that can further shape your plot. 

Everyone needs a support system, even superheroes! It’s not good to portray your superhero characters without emotions. They’re also bound to get hurt, confused, or anxious by what’s happening around them. 

  1. Show the impact of your characters’ superpowers on their normal lives 

Your superheroes are still people, so don’t be afraid to give them a life outside their abilities. Try to depict how their powers affect their everyday lives and the people around them. 

Do their powers limit them from having a job or starting a family? Are their obligations to save the world from crime and whatnot hindering them from living the lives that they want? These life struggles should be considered and discussed to inject some reality checks in your story– so your readers can deeply immerse themselves and relate to their life conflicts!
