Super strength, it is one of the most clich├ęd powers of many superheroes and some super villains. You can carry objects heavier than you, you can punch boulders and destroy things with your bare hands. But I think it's kind of boring that usually in fiction people would super strength either pursue being a super villain or a superhero. How about pursuing something different. Can you imagine winning martial art competitions Be undefeated throughout their new career. Can you imagine winning multiple gold medals in different sports in the Olympics. In real life, Athletes were disqualified if they were found to use steroids because these performance enhancing drugs is considered cheating. If you are naturally strong, do you think it's fair to compete against regular athletes?

Can you imagine being a boxer who is never defeated on your entire career? That sounds amazing to me. Or can you imagine being the winner of multiple ironman competitions. It sounds so greedy But it's such a great fantasy and sadly it ain't real

well, if its "super" strength, is it achieved through an unnatural means? if it was then yes, I think it would be unfair to pursue a career in sports. However, I think sports are over rated anyway, and people spend far too much time and money on them. If you have a "gift" of being stronger than the average person, put it to good use. Don't use it for personal gain, or at least not ONLY for personal gain.. people do need jobs, after all. The world needs more Captain Americas. Just saying.

this idea popped out on my head, I'm kind of writing a story about a person who have superpowers but instead of being a superhero, he decided to be a mixed martial artist.

If people with super strength tried to be athletes, depending on what the sport is, the other people without the super strength could get seriously injured. Imagine if an American football player had super strength -- if he (or she ) went to tackle another player, they would wind up with broken bones, they might even die! Also, teams would end up recruiting more and more people with super strength and normal people wouldn't stand a chance of getting on a team. I think the best thing to do would be to have separate normal and super strength teams and they would compete against their own strengths. It'd be similar to how there are different weight sections for wrestling and boxing.
