I’m making overpowered insects that resemble bees. Is there any superpowers that would fit these creatures??
Superpowered bees, huh?
Probably going with something really obvious here, but poison? That’s not really a superpower-those aren’t my strong suit.
How about some sort of endurance based ability? Making those bees harder to kill would be an interesting challenge. Or making them really fast so they can fly out of harm’s way quicker could also be interesting.
Then again, we live in a world where Murder Hornets are big news right now. I’d tread lightly with superpowered bees to avoid being meme’d.
That sounds like a really cool idea, you have my interest.
It's pretty typical for people to give insects hive mind and powerful venom. Perhaps compound eyes and something along the lines of aerial adaptation. An exoskeleton would be another. I'm not sure how useful this comment is, though, as those are just stereotypical powers for anything related to arthropods that I'm sure you could have surmised on your own. Actually, most of these aren't really "powers," as all insects are characterized as having one or more of these traits (all have exoskeletons).
You might look into different types of venoms. We typically associate bee stings with very weak reactions involving some swelling unless a person is stung many times or is allergic, but a powerful neurotoxin could mean immediate paralysis. Then you don't have to feel limited to people turning into the Michelin Man and dying from asphyxiation. Also, the larger the insect, the more venom it can carry, usually. Also much scarier looking.
What do you think?
