Body Part Disembodied

Body Part Disembodied The ability to exist as a disembodied body part. This is
only a superpower if the disembodied state makes the disembodied entity more
powerful. Giant eyes generally can see more and/or shoot rays. Giant hands can punch
with superhuman strength and of course hands are pretty strong and a blow to a hand is
less effective than a blow to the stomach or head. This is a good example of a power that
can be identified inductively. Comic books are filled with powerful disembodied body
parts but I think this is the first and for now the only list that includes this state of being
as a superpower.
