Are super-humans abnormal?

Doubts and confusions are just paving their way to my mind from a span of several days. Since their behaviour, activities, routine, thinking to a grater exent is same as a common person does but still they have some powers which are rare to a crowd of people. Then how can we say that they are abnormal howerver they acts, behaviour is like us. We know god had given them different n special powers which are lacked bu us so, cant they be called an abnormal !!!!!!!!!!

So what, exactly, are you thinking of as a "superhuman?"  Do you just use this to mean someone who is in some way more talented than the average person?  If so, "abnormal" is probably technically correct, but it has a bad connotation.  You would only use "abnormal" to refer to differences that are more negative.

We all share in the human experience in a different way.  Who can really say what normal is?  Normal is a range, not a specific.  We all have our own brand of normal.  Technically anything out of the ordinary is abnormal.  A superhuman would be abnormal.  I am not sure it really matters what you call them.  Anyone who had superhuman powers, any kind of superhero, would not be normal.  He or she would probably feel a little left out.
