SuperheroesWith an epic selection of superhero movies hitting the silver screen this summer, have decided to hold a survey asking people such questions as, what's your favorite superpower, who is your favorite hero / villain, plus what abilities do you think the human race will manifest in the future?

From this, they have gathered that the top ten most-wanted superpowers cover a mixture of both physical and mental abilities. However, the UK clearly values brawn over brains, with 85% favoring physical powers over mental ones.

Made famous by the Fantastic Four's Invisible Woman, Invisibility comes in at first place (15.15%), Wolverine's ability to heal comes in at a close second (14.5%), Doctor Strange’s forte, time travel, takes the third spot (13.8%), Superman’s usual pastime, flying, is in at fourth (11.9%), and the bane of Deadpool’s existence, immortality, takes fifth place (8.55%).

The survey also shows that we believe we are a race of mutants in the making. The top five superpowers predicted to evolve in the future were cited as mind control (17.6%), communicating with animals (15.5%), healing (14.9%), telepathy (14.8%), as well as weather manipulation (13.45%).

Something else that also came out of this was an answer to an age-old debate: Who is the greatest superhero of all-time? Surprisingly Superman flies in on top (37%), with long-time rival Batman swooping in to take second place (32%), and Spider-man snagging third (22%). Funnily enough, Batman’s nemeses dominate the super-villain rankings, with The Joker (45%), The Penguin (22%), and The Riddler (20%) taking the top three spots. Here, check this out for the full findings of this survey.
