Could this be a real-life Riddick? An alien visitor? Or maybe the first of the genuine X-Men? We don't know for sure... but we can confirm that history was recently made in southern China when doctors discovered that a boy named Nong Youhui can see in total darkness. He's the first documented case of a human being with natural night vision.

Nicknamed “Star Child” by his mother, Youhui amazed scientists (and secured an entry in the World Record Academy, also the source of this story) with his ability to see perfectly in the dark with his rare silver-blue eyes... which seem to glow when light hits them. The discovery was first made when his father brought him to an eye specialist, concerned that the eye coloration was a sign of illness. Not only did doctors determine him to be healthy, but further tests proved that the boy could read perfectly in the dark.
 
Are we looking at the next step in human evolution? It's hard to tell, but we're thinking this may qualify as a legit superpower. Find out more in this clip from China's CCTV:
