Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown has quipped about her own “superpowers” following her recovery from a broken kneecap.

The actress, 14, suffered the injury when she slipped by a pool earlier this year.

“Having a great time in the pool, get out… bad summer,” she said.

“It was not a good moment for me. It was definitely a life experience.

“It took me three weeks to get up and start walking again, and then about five weeks for me to start  using it without my brace.

“It was a quick recovery. The doctor said I have superpowers, so you know. I made it.”

Brown, who was at Comic-Con in San Diego to promote her lead role in Godzilla: King Of The Monsters, said she received sympathy from her Stranger Things cast-mates.

“It was nice because I got a little bit of attention,” she said. “Also, I had gifts. Everybody gave me gifts.

“I got flowers, I got teddy bears, I got a giant card from my Stranger Things family. It was very sweet.”
