Most, if not all super powers give the individual an advantage over the rest of humanity. If someone woke up with superpowers, perhaps after a classic lab experiment or awakened mutant D.N.A, how would their day go and what would they do with their new found power? Whatever they choose to do with it depends on their abilities. X-ray vision could help a doctor find an injury or assist the police in a crime scene. But, having an ability like techopathy instantly makes that individual the most powerful being on the planet. Such beings with extraordinary abilities may have a tremendous influence on our world. That may range from becoming a beacon of hope to being the physical embodiment of the apocalypse.

We've been engineering life for thousands of years through selective breeding. We never knew how it worked until we discovered DNA
We as humans are frail and vulnerable, especially our bodies, in which everyday diseases and accidents take away parts of us: whether it is a hand, a leg, or even a heart. So what if I told you that our future relies on humanity transforming into cyborgs? The definition of cyborgs today is a rare word to be known or referred to, but in the future, cyborgs will be our new definition of humanity. This theme first came to my mind when I first watched several movies, like Mr. Nobody, I, Robot and a few Black Mirror episodes, that inspired the idea for me to create my own prediction of how we, as humans, will look like, and how our world will evolve. Cyborgs are fictional or hypothetical people whose physical abilities are extended beyond normal, human measures by mechanical elements built into the body. As an 18-year-old girl living in the 21st century, it is fair to say that our world is not like 20 or 50 years ago. Every day, science and technology experiences life-changing breakthroughs, whether it is the development of prosthetic hands that sense touch, thought-controlled bionic legs and noses that smell diseases, which will be definite by around 2050. That is only 32 years away. When I'm 50, the world I will be living in as an adult will be excessively different from the one that I had lived in as a teenager. Therefore, for this theme I decided to manipulate my own models on Photoshop and create my own visual prediction on human cyborgs, changing their skin color, their hair color and maneuvering our current idea of a normal physical appearance, to a more futuristic evolvement.
Disclaimer: I am not anti-technology in the slightest; the mere act of writing and posting on Vocal precludes me from that position already.
In comics and movies, human superpowers are limited by only our imagination. But in real life, there are some talented individuals with skills beyond the reach of ordinary mortals. Myths and legends abound of people with abilities ranging from the supernatural to superhuman, but these 10 people have had their unique powers verified by science. Behold, the top ten real-life X-men!
What makes us human beings I ask myself many times, in this ever changing world where ideas and constructs evolve on a decadian stage? With all the advancements in technology from biological, ecological, symbiotic and synthetic integration within or on the human body, what then was once pure flesh and blood may, it seems, soon cease to exist.
I believe that there is nothing more important for a human being than understanding the reason for its existence.
There didn't seem to be rhyme or reason to the timing of the outbursts.
