Few positive effects: There are few if any positive effects of brain damage. However there are countless negative effects. These relate to what part of the brain is affected and the age of the person who experiences the damage. Speak to your doctor about what to expect in your situation.

No superpowers: Unlike comic books, no positive effects from brain trauma, spider bites, or radiation exposure. The only positive thing that i can even postulate is that you didn't die and that it should be a wake-up call if you are at high risk--drinking alcohol, not wearing seatbelts, not wearing motorcycle helmet, etc.
