The Periodic Table of Super Powers

With this table, you can easily represent your favorite super-heroes’ power-sets in simple, not-at-all-far-too-complex-to-be-useful formulas!

For instance: Superman comes out as: OAFSISpVxVhSn

Pretty cool, though I am somewhat outraged at the lack of a unique “engineer” element. Certainly, this would apply to Bruce Wayne, Tony Stark, and a myriad of others.

In case you’re wondering, Batman is ORcScSoTcGDcLcVGe. Though admittedly that makes it a lot more difficult to sing (“nana-nana-nana-nana ORcScSoTcGDcLcVGe”)

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. I dunno. I have a problem with all these periodic tables that are coming out, because they all seem to miss the beauty of the periodic table of elements — elements that are vertical groups are related to each other. All the noble gasses are in one vertical stack. The Halogens are all vertical. These tables that keep popping up are almost random at how they are organized. Why aren’t the mental powers (TK, mind blast, precog, etc) in a group instead of spread out like the metaloids? Why aren’t the controls (weather, earth, plant, life) grouped? The mutations, like shapeshifting, growth, shrinking, intangibility together?

    I’m done ranting. This just irks me.

  2. Bruce Wayne was more an executive than an engineer. He might have had fancy toys, but I have a feeling these were designed by engineers under his employ that he felt he could trust.
