Scarlett Johansson's superhero character in "The Avengers" may be an expert martial artist and weapons specialist whose body defies disease and aging, but it's nothing compared to Johansson's real-life super power.

"Muffin baking," said Johansson, when E! News asked about her personal super power at 'The Avengers" premiere at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles last night. "I can make blueberry, banana chocolate chip…it's like a superpower, just more fattening, I guess."

But Johansson doesn't appear to have been eating very many muffins lately. The star stunned on the red carpet last night in a fitted, black Versace dress with a peplum detail. She paired the look with black heels, simple jewelry and an updo. 

Johansson's wardrobe choice could be a nod to her character Black Widow in the highly anticipated superhero film.
