Super Human Powers I Would Love To Have From Rick Riordan Verse

Hello guys how are you? How your nights were fine? I hope you guys are doing well in these times of COVID-19. Keep taking care of yourselves. I care. Slowly, this year is going again as tomorrow is going to be the first. I hope the passing of time also means the passing of these unachievable situations.

Even in this less than pleasant times, we're allowed to hope, wish, and dream no matter how whimsical or fanciful they may be. That's why today, I'll be discussing powers I'd have loved to have based on Rick Riordan's works.

As you know, Rick Riordan wrote the Percy Jackson series, the Kane Chronicles, and the Magnus Chase series. This article however, is going to be focusing mostly on the Percy Jackson series (and the continuation, heroes of Olympus) because the Greek gods were just awesome! His version of them had personality and style! They were omnipotent beings who were not above childish bickerings, and promiscuous relationships with mortals that eventually led to the occasional demigod offsprings.

In this verse, the big three were Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades, and their children were extremely powerful. They were in fact a tier above the other children. I'll pick my favorite big three demigod powers first and I'll probably talk about the remaining. Or I'll talk about the other powers I love. Or I'll do both. Let's see how it goes.

1 Poseidon

There's my favorite line from the books that goes something like "Lord of storms, father of horses, all hail Percy Jackson son of the sea god" I may be slightly inaccurate now because it's been a while since I read the books, but those lines are just memorable because of the circumstances surrounding them. Basically, the sons of the Poseidon are basically invincible on water. They can swim to great depths, breathe under water, fend off whole armies single handedly on water. Apart from that, they can create whirlwinds, and have incredible resistance to fire. They have perfect bearings on the sea and can just easily dish out coordinates while they are at sea like they had a map in their heads. Sometimes, they are blessed with the power to shape shift.

The children of Poseidon are the coolest of all. Just imagine that they didn't like a whole city, and unfortunately it was a coastal city. They'd easily flood the city without so much as breaking a sweat.

I can say without a doubt that on water (which is over 70% of the earth), the sons of Poseidon beat all other demi gods.

Also, they have a particular power of interest. They are said to have the whole of the sea in them by virtue of being sons or the sea god. Essentially, even in the absence of water, they could still have emergency water powers but using this ability, while devastating for the unfortunate recipient, could also be fatal to them. For those that don't remember what I'm referring to, I'm talking about the time when Kronos's minions tried to throw Percy into a furnace. He didn't even feel the heat as fast as normal people would, but when the heat was becoming unbearable, he unleashed the powers of the sea on them destroying the entire place and he landed on Calypso's island. For those familiar with Greek myth and Odysseus' story, you'd already guess that the only reason he survived was because the goddess healed him.

Speaking of healing, the sons of Poseidon instantly heal most injuries as soon as they touch water.

It should be obvious by now that no other demi gods can match these guys. Once in a battle between a son of Zeus and Percy, the battle ended when Percy froze a whole creek of water after making it into a cone and was about to slam it onto the son of Zeus. It was a daughter not a son (Thalia).

2 Hades

If I must choose another of the big three, it'll be Hades. His children could cause earthquakes and could summon precious stones from the earth by virtue of them being sons of the god of the underworld.

And what I think their cool power is is the ability to summon the dead to fight for them. I know, pretty cool!

3 Zeus

The coolest power is flight I think. But lightning is cool too. But in the book Thalia was autophobic so she never flew. So the power is useless if you fear heights. This - in contrast to Poseidon's children who the sea always calls out to and gives clarity even before they know who they are - is unfortunate. I think they can create whirlwinds too. Their combination with poseidon's children can be something though. Imagine tornadoes, whirlwinds, and lightning just coming at you. You're not going to survive that.

I've talked so much about my favorite big three, so I'm just going to tell the coolest powers of my other favorites.

1 Charm speak (Aphrodite)

Aphrodite's children could do this. They could convince you to do anything for them. Piper once talked a man with a fancy cat into giving her his car amongst other things. To an extent, it worked on Boris, the north wind god. There are technicalities though. A part of the person just want to do what you want him to do.

2 Fire and Engineering (Hephaestus)

Hephaestus's children are immune to fire and can build anything. Giant robots, armor, anything.

3 Magic (Reality warping magic) (Hecate)

Hecate is the goddess of magic so her children can devote themselves to the study of magic and learn to alter reality.

4 Sleep (Hypnos)

Hypnos's children could put multiple people to sleep at once.

Sorry about the lengthy article guys. Hope you enjoyed it though.

Thanks for reading. Stay cool.
