Another iconic superhuman power is invulnerability, which is the ability to withstand considerable damage while remaining completely unharmed. In some cases, an individual can stand against attacks ranging from a barrage of bullets to a nuclear explosion. Two of my main characters, Patrick Donovan and Derek Marvin, possess this power in their own unique ways.
With Patrick Donovan, his ability to absorb heat not only increases his physical strength and stamina, but also his durability as well. The more heat Patrick absorbs, the more damage his body can withstand. When Patrick’s heat absorbing power first manifested, his invulnerability increased to the point in which he could tear apart solid machinery without injuring his bare hands.
With Derek Marvin, his body is already sturdy enough to sustain multiple collisions with energy shockwaves a blow from Cyber Shadow while only suffering a headache. However, even Derek’s durability has limits and can be breached if the attack inflicts sizable damage. Unlike Patrick’s version of the power, Derek’s invulnerability does not increase.
