What power do you want?
You could get Superman-style flying, which is way better than regular flying: you can go out into space, deep underwater, anywhere you want, as fast as you want. Fancy a day trip to the Red Planet?
Or you could stake out a little Wolverine action, with super-fast healing and an adamantium skeleton. (Silly spellcheck, of course that’s a word!) Razor-sharp claws that rip apart your own flesh every time you use them, are, uh, optional.
The sky is far from the limit. Why not give yourself teleportation, and extend that day trip to the Andromeda Galaxy? Or immortality, so you can wait for the Andromeda Galaxy to come to you? Or telekinesis, which is basically a fancy word for magic, and includes flying as a special case.
(Really, spellcheck? Teleportation is nonsense but telekinesis is totally legit?)
Much as the Airbender movie sucked, the actual bending of air, water, fire, etc. would be pretty undeniably sweet. Another special case of telekinesis, I guess – which, come to think of it, could cover an awful lot of things. After all, what’s invisibility but photon-bending? What’s Magneto but an iron bender?
And nothing says it has to be flashy. How about going the practical route: Find-Your-Keys Man? Remember-Where-We-Parked Girl?
Or, for the debate tonight: Hyperbole Detection Lad! Logical Fallacy Enumeration Woman! Mr. Ad Hominem, non sequitur powers activate! Ah, if only.
Me personally? Well, I’m a nerd (shocker!) so my dream power is pretty nerdy. I’d like to be able to touch a book and instantly, permanently have all of its information dumped into my brain. I’d walk around libraries, just tapping encyclopedias…*swoon.* I suppose you’d get more knowledge by channeling the Internet into your neurons, but I’m old-school. Besides, who really wants 4chan inside their skull?
That’s me, though. What about you? What’s your super power?
