Weird Powers

One thing I'm finding lacking right now in superhero comics?

The use of more, shall we say, "colorful" powers. Things that are a bit off the wall, even silly, but that have an established place in superhero comics like size-changing, stretching, Illusions, or the powers of about half the Legion of Superheroes. I really do feel that the superhero genre becomes a lot less colorful and a lot more bland when all that's left are big flying bruisers and Zappy McBlasters.

Any thoughts on this?
