Invisible Woman is one of the Marvel powerhouses. To boot, her power extends to the Galaxy Level. Her main super power is the power to create force fields or force field bubbles. She has created force fields to withstand blows from Luke Cage, or to restrain Absorbing Man. In ‘Fantastic Four Unlimited’ (1993) #3, Invisible Woman proved why she is one of the most powerful members of the Fantastic Four.

In a scientific expedition to the Negative Zone, the Fantastic Four, Blastaar and Annihilus ended up inside a vortex or black hole. The team was protected by Annihilus’ cosmic control rod and Blastaar’s helmet. As they were being sucked into the vortex by its distortion waves, their tech starting wearing off and Reed started fearing for their lives. At that moment, Sue came to their rescue and created a force field inside the black hole. Thus, she proved why her power may be without limit!

Let’s list down Sue Storm’s five most fantastic super powers.

Later, they find out the young girl is the X-Man Marvel Girl, long missing for years.

COSMIC RAY AWARENESS

Invisible Woman has a form of cosmic awareness. In ‘Fantastic Four’ (2002) #62, Sue has turned Reed invisible so that he can work undetected in Times Square, New York. As Reed is working on mathematical equations, Sue asks him how it is possible for her to see him while he is invisible.

Cosmic Ray Awareness: Sue’s retina are able to detect cosmic rays as well as visible light. This allows her to perceive her own force fields and other invisible objects and, with concentration, can also provide her with a limited form of vision, allowing her to “see” even if blinded.

FANTASTIC FOUR POWER SYNERGISM

Oddly, Invisible Woman shares a super power with the Fantastic Four. In ‘Marvel 2-In-One’ (2018) #3, Reed Richards sends Thing and the Human Torch a message that he needs help as he is in danger in another universe. However, Human Torch has been experiencing some power loss and needs help. Then, Thing takes him to see Hercules who requested assistance from Zeus deprived him of his godly super powers. Surely, Surely, Hercules takes them to see Rachna Koul, a scientist that helps superheroes and supervillains with super power issues for money. Rachna tells them that the Fanastic Four have a super power synergism and the farther away they are from each other, the more they will lose their super powers.

Fantastic Four Power Synergism: The original members of the Fantastic Four are tethered to each other, and act as as their own conduits of power. They can be apart within their own universe and retain a connection, but prolonged periods cut off from each other in other universes result in a gradual decline in power levels. If they spend too much time separated this way, they would eventually become powerless.
