The Illustrious Omnibus of Superpowers!

Occasionally something falls off the internet and into your eyeballs that simply DEMANDS to be shared, and the infographic masterpiece below is just such a treat.

Created by Brooklyn based design house, Pop Chart Lab, this visual compendium is a comic book delight.

In Pop Chart's own words it's "a taxonomic tree of over 100 wondrous powers and abilities, with over 200 superheroes and supervillains as examples thereof."

It's a marvelous piece of work and well worth the time it'll take you to click on the pic, zoom in and explore.
(I would also recommend a look at their Evolution of Video Game Controllers poster)

I take immense pleasure from the inclusion of such lesser known wonders as 'Chat', 'Zzzax', 'Ferro Lad' and 'Bouncing Betty'.

The Etherington Brothers ... telling you about stuff you never knew you really wanted to know, but you do now, since 2004.
