    So a benevolent wizard hops out from behind a tree...

    ... and grants you a super power. However, it is the first power which pops into you mind upon his asking. What is your power?






    This will serve an a research base for some characters in a short story I am writing.

    The ability to stop time for all save me. This is what I would pick. I know it sounds horrifically unethical, but just imagine the things you could get away with if you could stop time, do the thing, get away, then start time again with no one the wiser.

    Remember, its the first thing that comes to mind, not your favorite one.


    Mine:
    The ability to transfer energy between states and objects.

    Oh, this would be the very first thing that would pop into my head.

    I've thought long and hard on this one before. ;)

    This was always a wish of mine when i used to study. The ability to study/sleep for as long as i wanted before exams! The killer advantage.

    Might be a wasted use of it, but whatcha ganna do.


    Kyle, i read the unhappy thread before this one, so my power would be to open all locks.

    God-Darn stupid lame power.

    Though, might have been a fine power in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries with chastity belts, for those women desperate to get out.

    That is a power that could be used for good, like if you saw someone being attacked, you could stop time and take the victim away.

    The power that first came to my mind was flying.

    The power to heal and save lives...even bring someone back from the dead.

    Honestly, that's the first thing I thougt of. Probably says a whole lot about my fears for the future...lol

    First thing that poped into my head: Manipulate time and space; but then I read on and remembered Charmed - freezetime/blow up stuff, move objects with my mind, see into the future, shimmer form one place to the next, heal... But I also wouldn't mind having ability to remember everything - some people can do (almost) this anyway :( and I would love to be able to split into another me :) --- Right, now I just have to pick one.... hmm

    'The power to make you b***** off'

    That would be the first thing that comes into my head ;)

    If I was thinking clearly, then I'd probably want leadership qualities. I wouldn't use any Spiderman powers, but I'd love to tell people to do things themselves, rather than relying on other people.

    This is terribly unoriginal, but flight. I've had one dream where I could fly, and it was probably the best moment of my life.

    Same here. After all the fantasizing I've done about what I could do if I had superpowers, the first thing that came to mind when I saw this thread was flight...what is wrong with me?

    The power to make Canada esplode. Because they gotta suffer for Toronto being cooler than Rochester.

    ;)

    Actually, I'd like the power to make awesome music. Because I've been listening to Junior Kimbrough, R.L. Burnside, T-Model Ford, the Black Keys and Hank III; all contenders for the best music I've heard. I wish to make music like theirs.

    First thing that popped into my mind was invisibility. Honestly not a power I'd really care for, but that's what came up so that's what I'm stuck with.

    Flying. Absolutely. It's been my (pipe) dream ever since I was a little kid and it's always the first superpower on my lips.

    The ability to move hockey pucks with a thought. This ability would have owned if only I had been watching something else and didn't make it so ridiculously specific. On the bright side, the Leafs might finally win something :eek:
