[Comments] (5) : One assumption I've never seen questioned in my extremely non-exhaustive survey of superhero comics is the idea that every super-powered person has unique powers. In real life, it's much more likely you'd have populations of people with similar powers, like you might get in an RPG with a points system.

But when I think of scenarios where, eg. 1% of the population is telepathic, all I come up with is young adult SF books where there's only one superpower: there's normal people and then an oppressed minority of telepaths that's a metaphor for puberty. Has no one combined population genetics with the wide variety of superpowers found in, say, the Marvel universe?
