If you could have one Superpower

Post by RetroRik » Thu Dec 18, 2008 4:27 am

Which one would it be?

I would love to be able to read peoples thoughts. Especially womens :wink:

There would never be a situation that you couldn't master because you could always tap into someone elses thoughts to get the answer.

You could probably become the most powerfull person on the planet with an advantage like mind reading.

Oh and you would know which women fancied you if any. :D

I would like to be invisible - id be straight into the womens changing room in the gym.

Failing that, x-ray vision for similar reasons!!

I would like to be able to pause time.

I'd rather not say why! :shock:

yeah i used to think pause time - until i saw that twilight zone episode where a nuclear war breaks out and she pauses time just before the bomb hits...

Id probably want one where i can morph into any object/person living or not.

Instant teleportation for me. Contrary to popular wisdom, it IS the final destination that counts, not the (endless, dragging, comfortless) journey....

I have seen that episode lol - I worked out a solution - I would pause time just as the bomb was about to touch the floor, then spend a few lonely months researching how to disarm a nuclear warhead. Problem solved.

Time travel is a pretty good one. I could go back and drop Gordon Brown and the rest of them on their heads when they were babies, many times. :)

Surely as time was paused you could just smash the thing to bits and disassemble it with no ill effect? That would take considerably less time methinks.

I seem to remember there being more than one...and the main dilemma for the story was the amount of warnings she had about the impending doom but she ignored.


you can watch it here

watching it again it seems the rocket is high up or one has just hit as a yellow glow is seen...

there was also a twilight zone episode where a boy could look at a picture and say "bring" and it appeared...he was a spastic though....


anyway back on topic - id like a flying ability also or a speed one..

If we're all going to have super powers, i'd like the one where I can just touch someone and pinch all their superpowers :D

Didn't someone already do that.

I'd like super speed, like faster then the Flash or Superman, watch me do my work in one second flat. And spam any site I don't like into the ground in under thirty.

As a fan of Hiro Nakamura, I think the greatest gift would be travelling back in time...
Knowing what other people think can't be that nice in the long term... :wink:

The first thing I'd do is: getting the lottery numbers from the following day... :lol:

It would have to be time travel (with money from that period :wink: ) That way I could go back & buy all the games I haven't got & still want + buy numerous copies of the games that get a fortune on Ebay :lol:

This is a tough one. I'm torn between Telekenesis and the ability to pause/travel through time.
