With Wonder Woman coming out on June 2nd, 2017, thinkThin conducted a survey to see what superpowers real women would want. The protein bar company is an official partner of the Wonder Woman movie and, while we all can’t be as powerful as Princess Diana of Themyscira, the results of the survey proved that most women do in fact want superpowers.

Surveying 1,000 women over the age of 18, thinkThin discovered that 63% of women want superpowers — with women between the ages of 18 and 34 being the ones most likely to desire powers, with 80% responding yes.

Regardless of age though, the most popular superpower for women was invisibility.

So, pretty much, we all want to be Harry Potter.

Even though invisibility was the most desired power with 36% of the women choosing that over powers like flight, telepathy, superhuman strength, and shape shifting, Sue Storm — the Invisible Woman — from the Fantastic Four was not an option when the survey responders were asked which female superhero they admired the most.

But Wonder Woman certainly was, and she was by far the most popular — beating out other superheroines such as Supergirl, Catwoman, Jean Grey, and Jessica Jones.

Yet, while women like Wonder Woman the most, they wouldn’t want her costume. 77% of women would choose a headband over a tiara and 76% would pick pants over a skirt — which is much more sensible than Wonder Woman’s outfit.

But that doesn’t mean she still can’t kick some serious ass.

This survey will definitely have you thinking about which superpower you’d want before you go see Wonder Woman in June, but we like to think that women have their own special superpower anyway — the one that’s being a woman.
