    Invisibility

    The H.G. Welles novel points out some of the limitations of this ability, assuming it doesn't extend to clothing and footwear (and there's no reason why it would, other than the cheat that the power is "magic" in the first place).
    H.G. Wells suggested this might be done by changing the refractive index of the human body to that of air in his novella, so the invisibility did not extend beyond his body. Jack London tackled the notion in two ways in his short story, "The Shadow and the Flash", using both the method of changing the refractive index to that of air and of eliminating refraction altogether, (the former method giving rise to "rainbow" flashes and the latter to shadows). And, before the radio series, The Shadow was a master of disguises and impersonations; then, on radio, he utilizes "hypnosis" to render himself invisible to his foes.

    There are other methods.

    The artist Liu Bolin blends into backgrounds with paint.

    And, Ivan T. Sanderson thought the Solway Firth photograph might have revealed an alien visitor caught on film, (when not otherwise visible to the photographer and his daughter).

        Breasts. (Female-- not male, just to be clear.)

        Sorry, not trying to be inappropriate but you can't tell me they aren't a superpower.

        Though if your protagonist is male and he says the same thing without thinking that could be funny -- or frightening, probably frightening.

          I would choose the power to hypnotize women.

          And I am a male, the last time I checked.

            The ability to make other people fart uncontrollably.
