The Best Witchy Powers from ‘American Horror Story: Coven’

If given the choice of which witch’s power from American Horror Story Coven is the best, what would we choose? Well, the Supreme’s of course. Fiona Goode (Jessica Lange) has unlimited abilities, but that’s way too easy. Of all the other witches on AHS Coven, these are the best powers that we’ve seen so far.

Succubus/Killer Ladyparts

Zoe Benson (Taissa Farmiga) can have sex with people…to death. The jury’s still out on whether that’s good, bad, or just depressing.


Bringing animals (and possibly humans) back to life seemed peaceful enough until Misty Day (Lily Rabe) revived an alligator that turned around and mauled the people who killed it. Spoiler alert: that’s how Swamp People ends.


Pro: clairvoyance could totally be used for gossip, furthering your career, or winning the lottery. Con: it might drive you a little crazy.

Human Voodoo Doll

Quit hitting yourself! Quit hitting yourself! Although Queenie (Gabourey Sidibe) can’t actually control other people’s limbs, if she stabs herself in the hand or dips her arm in boiling oil, it’s going to leave a mark on her victim. (So don’t get on her bad side.)


As Madison Montgomery (Emma Roberts) proved in the premiere episode, telekinesis can be deadly depending on who is wielding the power. Or it could be used to make every child’s Matilda dreams come true. C’mon you know you had them, if only because it made cooking look like so much more fun than it is.
