I thought of a rather unique power recently that has appeared in many works of fiction: power augmentation. This is the ability to enhance the powers of others or oneself to even greater levels. For example, if you have super speed and you come in contact with someone who can augment powers, then you would become faster than time itself. Another example is if you have telepathy and you come in contact with this individual, then you would be able to read the thoughts of everyone for miles. If the user of this ability has other powers, then they can enhance them in order to make themselves even more formidable towards their enemies. This ability would be a great way for a supervillain to gain the loyalty of other super humans, which would give them an easy way to assemble a powerful army. With this in mind, I am thinking of adding this ability to the growing arsenal of the main supervillain in my sequel series. Just thinking about how he will use this is terrifying.



  1. You could also use this power for good. Why just the supervillain? If there were two characters who had that ability on “both sides”… good vs. evil… OR if the character with the augmentation ability could be swayed to change between competing sides… that could be pretty interesting, I think.

  2. Thank you for some other fantastic article. The place else may just anybody get that type of information in such a perfect approach of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I’m at the search for such information.
