People gain superpowers by taking a drug called MPH. This drug allows them to run at a very high speed. So fast that they can run on water and be able to see rain drops as if they were suspended in air.
1.) Can drugs give us superpowers?
2.) Can you run on water?
3.) How fast do you have to go to see rain suspended in air as it falls?
1.) Superpowers? No. However, drug do assist our bodies in a number of great ways to help us heal, focus and get rid of pain. Drug take advantage of how our body works to give us a desired result; usually in light of something being wrong with out bodies. There are steroids that help us get bigger and stronger but, there's a cost. There's no super soldier serum to make Captain America. There are drugs out there can can help you build strength or run a little faster but, nothing to the magnitude of having a superpower.
2.) If someone can run fast enough to not break the surface tension they would be able to run on water. The basilisk lizard is able to do it! However, for a human to run on water, we would need to be able to run ~30 m/s (67 mph) and the fastest man in the world is only able to run 10.4 m/s (23.3 mph).
3.) To run fast than rain falls would mean you have to run faster than the terminal velocity of the rain. As rain falls it will fall at a rate of gravity (9.8 m/s^2). The diameter of the rain drop will determine the terminal velocity because air will push back on the water droplet causing friction and cause there to be a point in which the drop can not accelerate to a high speed (this is the terminal velocity). a average 2 mm drop will reach a maximum speed of ~21 mph. So, if we were able to run on water, we would also be able to see rain virtually at a stand still.
