Which Superhero Has the Most Powers? | Data Viz

The datasets

This data set was sourced from Kaggle. There are two data sets that had to be preprocessed and merged. The first data set contained each out the hero’s dimensions such as race, eye color, and other physical dimensions. The second dataset contains all the powers that are valued in boolean format.  The booleans were changed to zeros and ones in order to calculate the total powers.  Also, the powers had to be summed in a single column so that we could view all the powers.
