Character Induced Stupidity

Character Induced Stupidity (CIS) refers to any mental limitations and or plain mental handicap that characters impose upon themselves and utterly reduce their ability/skills and powers effectively. But unlike PIS, CIS does not occur because the plot requires it at all, but because the character is genuinely that stupid in the story mostly common in all genres.


  • Beyonder limiting his Omniscience and other powers during Secret Wars.
  • Superman (New 52) having the power to pretty much kill all his enemies but always likes to limit himself.
