Go figure, when I was little I made up my own superhero! I guess I never really have ever played by the rules!
Some of the things that come naturally to me seem to be super natural to others. This is what makes the world go round, isn't it? I have gifts that might help other people uncover their gifts which may provide light and enjoyment for others.
I never really thought of my ability to connect with others as a super power, or something I was naturally gifted at, until a friend of mine mentioned it to me. I enjoy meeting people and learning about their lives and the stories of how they came to be where they are at. It's a natural curiosity for me and because of that, people have a tendency to feel comfortable sharing with me.
As I began to understand this capability I understood that although Gotham City does not depend on me, I could make a difference for a few of its citizens by using my ability combined with my studies to assist others in their journeys.
So maybe the term super power is too much - or maybe it is really not enough, but all in all, it's way more fun to put on a cape while you work, so what's the harm?
