While we usually view superhuman abilities as either useful to save lives or create havoc, sometimes they have far more mundane uses.
Cand'la, a Velorian Protector, is paying a courtesy visit to the Prime Minister of the planet she's assigned to protect. A planet with more than its share of insects, which send chills down her back. She might be invulnerable and have the strength of a thousand men, but the mere thought of a filthy roach crawling across her skin drives her crazy.
So when a few of them try to walk across the floor while she's warming herself at the fire, waiting for her meeting to start... ZAP!
Of course, the smoking, black spots on the hardwood floor won't endear her to her host. But I rather think the Prime Minister is going to be focused on other things once he sees who his visitor is, and how she's dressed.
