If you could have any special abilities or super powers, what would you choose? (Limit one to two powers, please!)

There is a point to the question, I promise!

I would be Super Bronco, endowed with the power to enthrall agents and editors! For my secondary power, I'd have an uncanny ability to guess the correct lottery numbers. I would use these gifts for the betterment of mankind and my creditors.

My primary power would be healing and my secondary power would be invisibility.

I would be super fast and super efficient so I can get through tasks quickly and have time to relax and have fun after saving the day. When I was little, 2nd grade I think, I remember wishing I could speed through my homework in a manner of seconds, while still learning. Apparently I understood the value of it, I just wanted to go play. :D

I would turn into a Super Sayian (from Dragonball Z). With a mere grunt, my hair would turn blonde and grow down to my butt, my eyes would turn green, and a whooshing, pulsing glow would envelop me. I will also be able to fly, have superhuman strength, and fling glowing balls of golden energy at my enemies.

Very effective for running errands, getting to work/soccer/band events, hoeing the garden.. so many uses!

I think I'd want to fly like superman, and be BTVS-strong.

How about curing the world of all it's ills ... no global warming, no wars, and so on. Meanwhile, back to reality and back to my cup of coffee.

Other than "Booze" I don't think there is a name for it, but I would like the power to turn even the most cold-hearted fridgid woman on the planet into satisfied seductive love kittins who turn to mush in my presense. HEY!!! YOU ASKED FOR IT.... GET YOU OWN FREAKING SUPER POWER!!!! ...and fantasy.......

I wish I could use The Force. Healing would be cool too.

I'm really bummed that I did not get a Hogwart's letter when I was 11. :rant:

I'd be Chrono-Woman!

Seeing the future would be awesome, especially come lotto time, and stopping time for everyone except myself and whomever I was touching would be SOOOO useful...

I mean, really...you see what's about to happen, so you stop time, do a bit of re-arranging, then start time up again. Can you imagine the practical joke opportunities?

Freakin' Sweet.

#1 - Flying. I can't believe more people don't want this power. I mean... FLYING.

#2 - Invisibility. Although I'm not sure if this would be a good one because it would make me even more anti-social. I'd turn myself invisible whenever I was in public. ;)

#1- Telekinesis

#2- Pyrokinesis

Then I could set things on fire and fling them into my adversaries with a thought! Also, no more getting off the couch for the remote.

1. Flight

2. The ability to bestow upon the average person the common sense God gave a turnip.

(I drive in California. Now it all makes sense, doesn't it?)

Yeah, that's what this world needs, more Turnips!

I'm all for telekensis, but I'd love the power that kid had in the Twilight Zone, when he could just "make people go away."

I would be lucky. Like Domino and Longshot. Things would just work out for me no matter what.

Telekinesis
And Healing

I would also request a really hot looking superhero suit. One that minimized thighs and hips. Black and silver with a cute little buckle and a plaid mini skirt. Oh! And thigh high boots!

Hey now, who moved this from research? It's legitimate! I swears it on the precious!

(Doing a spontaneous study on what most people would want as an ability/power... and there will be follow up questions! <cackles maniacally>)

I'd choose time-travelling as my first power.

Second? Teleportation.

09-19-2007, 11:32 PM
I'd be a Mod. Is there even a need for a second power?

BenPanced
09-19-2007, 11:32 PM
All the stretchy, blow-up-like-a-balloon, bouncy powers combined from Mr. Fantastic and Plastic Man. Just 'cuz.

One up me, will ya! Then I'd be a virus in your computer that could jump into your body (in a platonic way, of course).

How 'bout the power of flight? That do anything for ya?

How 'bout the power to kill a Yak, from 50 paces, with MIND BULLETS??!!! That's Telekinesis, Kyle!

How 'bout the power...
to
MOVE
you?

# 1 - Super Writer

# 2 - Invisibility

And if I can’t have either, I’m willing to accept Super AW Poster.

At this moment, the superpower I'd choose is the ability to resurrect the unjustly banned.

Who got banned? And I love the Temple of the Dog refs.

Monkey kills Yak. Film at 11.

Monkey kills Yak. Film at 11.I doubt we can discuss it here without risking similar censure. I'm heartbroken, that's all I can say.

Oh, and the Temple of the Dog lyric that should be there is "seek out another road, 'cause this one has ended abrupt."

no question...flying.

Mmm. Can I just have Hal Jordan's ring? Please? 'cause I've wanted that since I was about five years old.

I don't know that that counts as a power, but that's what I want.

(An interesting thing: These days, almost all I read is Marvel Comics...and yet, unchanging since childhood, all the super-powers I want are DC)

I would like to be able to teleport myself, and to be able to read people's minds.

I would have said invisibility, but that means I would also be blind. (Yes, really. Ask a physicist).

Esopha
09-20-2007, 01:47 AM
Flying. Maybe matter manipulation. I could fly around and blow things up. Fun.

Ava Jarvis
09-20-2007, 01:59 AM
The ability to transfer my superpower of lostness on my enemies.

My ability to get lost is legendary. I have been known to lead people in a series of ever-closing circle to locate my favorite restaurant about two blocks from my place of work, reason being, I can't remember what direction it's in. Or street it's on. Or landmarks around it.

It's like a superpower, only not.

... yes, establishing a sense of place is a weak point in my writing. Why do you ask?

super power number one: power to control the elements (just cause and i want to set things on fire (i'm a pyro))

super power number two: flight

duh.

I've always wanted to be the fly on the wall.....and I've always wished I could fly. So, um I guess I really just want to be a fly.

Oh, I forgot to add... the healing thing, well it's just that vapourising someone with a stare seems a bit unkind while they're infirm.

telekinesis!!

logically, you can do ANYTHING with telekinesis. Well almost anything. It's all a matter of rearranging molecules :D

WarrenP
09-20-2007, 07:37 AM
OK, it will sound boring in comparison, but I'd simply want the power to not need sleep. I work a ton, and have so many projects I want to get done, that the idea of having an extra 6-7 hours per day to use as I please sounds perfect. Second, the whole flying thing seems hard to top.

I'd simply want the power to not need sleep. What a great idea. Can I get in on this? At least until espresso #2 kicks in.

Yeah, but then you push yourself too hard to save the space shuttle from the solar flare and you wind up turning into the Phoenix Force and then you run the risk of being an overused storyline. The advantage of that, though, is that you never stay dead.
