Liam Hoekstra

6 People with Superhero Powers

If you want to see the real Clark Kent, check out Liam. At the age of three Liam was moving furniture across the room even adults were not able to. His condition is a result of a rare genetic disorder called Muscle hypertrophy where the body builds muscle rapidly.

His skeletal structure and muscle tissue grow unexpectedly rapid without any damage to the coronary heart or any recorded aspect results on his frame. If he desired, younger Liam may want to sit down at the sofa all day munching potato chips whilst looking his favored Nickelodeon series and his frame would stay certainly ripped. How cool is that!

Now that is one super hero kid

At the age of two Ben had both his eyes removed due to retinal cancer. He was able to detect objects by making rapid clicking noises with his tongue. This process is known as echo location. Ben could play basketball, ride bicycle, play football and skateboard using this technique.  In animal world Whales and Bats use this technique. It is a sensory ability to analyze the echo reflecting from the object.

Tragically, the cancer that took his eyesight returned when he was 16, and he passed away.

Wim astonished the scientific and medical world by submerging himself in ice by the means of meditation and stayed there for 2 hours without his core body temperature changing a bit.

Wim has climbed the awful Mt. Everest in just shorts and marathoned the Namib desert without water. He is said to have mastered the art of controlling his immune system at his will. He was able to demonstrate his power in a lab environment too.

Stephen Wiltshire

Stephen was mute when he was diagnosed with severe autism at the age of three. He began to communicate using drawings. His teachers found a talent in him when he drew the ornate Royal Albert Hall. He would go on to paint cities and detailed landscapes entirely from his memory.

Stephen could look at his subject once and reproduce it in his drawings with photographic detail down to the exact number and shapes of even windows. He has done perfect detailed drawings of iconic cities like London, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Frankfurt, Dubai, New York and Madrid after a brief Helicopter ride.

Now that’s what I call a photographic memory

Michel Lotito

6 People with Superhero Powers

Known as Monsieur Mangetout (“Mr Eat-All”) Michel Lotito started eating unusual things at an early age and became famous for his consumption of indigestible things. His performances involved the consumption of metal, glass, rubber and other materials. He disassembled, cut up, and consumed bicycles, shopping carts, televisions, a Cessna 150, and other items. It took two years from 1978 to 1980 to consume the entire Cessna 150.

He has a rare disorder known as Pica and Medical examiners say that he has a thick lining in his stomach that enables him to digest otherwise no digestible objects for common people.

Between 1957 and 1997 he has ate an incredible 9 tons of metal. Before his eating attempts he drinks a substantial amount of mineral oil and drinks considerable amount of water during meals. He says bananas and eggs make him sick.

Michel Lolito died of natural causes ten days after his 57th birthday and is buried at the Grenoble Cemetery.

Kim peek

6 People with Superhero Powers

Kim peek was the inspiration of Dustin Hoffman’s character in the movie, the rain man. His special abilities began at the very early age of a year and a half. He could read both pages of an open book at once. One page with one eye and the other page with the other eye.  He could retain 98% of the information he read. Since he spent most of his time in the library with his dad he was able to read thousands of books including the encyclopedias and maps.

He could read a thick book in about an hour and could remember almost all the information in it. This extraordinary ability made him a walking encyclopedia and GPS. He could provide driving information between any two cities in the world. Medical examiners say this is due to the inability of his brain to connect between two hemispheres of the brain.

Conclusion

It is clear from these extraordinary lives that superheroes walk among us. We at GoodVibe believe that each person has some ability that is waiting to be discovered. May be we should try to find out what talent is submerged inside us and how to activate it.
