Default If You Had a Superpower, What Would it Be?


If I had a superpower, it would be superhuman strength. I would then kick the shit out of the Incredible Hulk.

The ability to "see" my keys, wallet or phone, no matter where I've left them.

Magnetism rules. This would allow you to control metals, electricity (no bills), create electro-magnetic fields and fly into space.

I don't understand why magnetism, män. Cause it only impacts iron, män. I don't understand how creating electromagnetic fields is a good thing, either män.
Can you explain that män? In a little more detail, maybe?
And how does magnetism allow one to fly into space, män? That one I'm really stumped on!

Personally intelligence is what I crave most. Not exactly a superpower, män. And I know that. But I feel it's the closest thing män to a superpower that I can work to achieve, män. By striving for perfection as frequently as possible, to keep this station running smoothly. Is that intelligence, män?

I don't know, män. But it's my definition of it. You'll have to make your own, män. Everybody does.

I think that the power of Persuasion would be a great superhero power. What's cool would be the ability to persuade anyone to do what you want them to do. If you want something to get done, there is no need to fight. Just control them psychologically.

Wow, a few of these are very creative. Mine would be far less so.

Shapeshifting would be my choice.

I could soar above mountains, swim in the deepest oceans, traverse areas and observe things that no other human could. I could lay around lazily like a cat, or sprint as fast a car. I could see in the dark, live in extreme climate, or just be a person's best friend and companion. I could become anything, experience everything.

((Oh wait, I already can hehehe))

("...me, I'll skip on any super power then..." declined the goblin with a faint smile, adding "...instead I'd like to pass the essence of my existence through the focus of my pen, that place where one's inner world forms while this outer world crumbles away, and where too all I have at this point is a determination not to reach journey's end without having first journeyed through my posts so to speak...", just the power of vision together with the power of portrayal perhaps, simply that which makes or breaks a writer if his view, not that the goblin was a writer though, just he liked their company it seemed)

Default change the human gene pool

I don't really know what a Super Power is. Do you mean a imaginary power?

Well, if I had one I'd change the Human Gene Pool. Not add any Genes. But change Greed to Empathy. Rage to Contemplation. Faith to Facts. Fear to Trust. ,,,probably more...

Then, after three generations, the planet would a happier place to live.

Have a nice writing day.

Are you asking what superpower I would choose in addition to the ones I already possess? Or what Superpowers that have already been granted to me?

Thanks for your comment.

I'm laughing. Okay, I'll bite. So, what superpowers do you have?

When I was teenager, I would have said x-ray vision and invisibility, for obvious reasons.

Who am I kidding. I choose x-ray vision and invisibility.

Heh. I was thinking that when I was kid, if I was invisible, I would have wanted to sneak into the girl's locker room.

Now, I could sneak into the women's locker room at the gym, but given the demographic, I'd probably see a lot of things I really don't want to see.

I guess some things are better left to the imagination.

Hi Binx.

I have found that KNOWING is better than imagining which is why I usually jump head first into most situations. But some of my close friends think I need a Keeper. I'm not sure what they're talking about...

I think the ability to take control and inhabit the body of an individual would be a tremendous superpower. Scary stuff. Tremendous ramifications.

I think the simple ability to fly (without wings) would be pretty neat.

I would choose clairaudience. Being able to hear things at great distances and the ability to change sight into sound.

What great wizard I would be.

I think that invulnerability would be a great power. You would have the ability to be immune from physical and mental damage. This would be a great characteristic for a soldier. If captured by an enemy, the soldier would be immune to mental and physical torture when the aggressor is attempting to get information.

I would say the power to imitate or steal other people's power. It seems like a pretty cool thing to do. I mean, although you don't have a specific attacking power, the power to imitate or steal others' power gives you the ability to experience every possibility. Say if a person who has the power to imitate or steal power existed amongst the Avengers--- he or she can combine the powers of Thor, Scarlett Witch, etc. Okay, that sounds like a Mary Sue.

Would be cool in real life though.
