If you could have any superpower( and I mean any), which one would it be?

I think I'd go for being able to make multiples of myself. That way, you'd always have another person to do whatever you want. You could play a pick up basketball game with yourself.

I don't know if this qould qualify as a superpower, but I'd love to be able to go back in time. I'm the kind of person who won't say/do something because I'm afraid of how another person would react to it. But if I had this "superpower", then I'd be able to see how they'd react. If it was nagative, then ***BAM***, go back in time and do it over


You let me run...how'd you expect me to feel?,

I think the combination of being invisible and time travelling would be really cool. I'd love to be able to go back and witness history first hand without disturbing anything with my presence. I also think that flying would be really really cool.

I'd want to be able to read people's minds. I'm really really super nosy, and while I'm pretty observant (I freak people out by the things I'll know about them offhand, just because I keep track of all the little details) there's nothing liking being ablet o see into people's minds. But I'd want an anti-pixie scanner, so I could scan there thoughs, and if there was anything bad about me I wouldn't want to know. Okay I would, never mind.

Crossing space and time. Think Beaming as in Star Trek.

Dannyboy, we'd do the same thing and head to the same continent, too, eh?

Shape shift into whatever you wanted to look like (person or object). That would be cool, and you could just change who you were to fit into any situation. (i'm sure psychologists would read something into that last sentence!)

While I'd love to be invisible, I'm going to have to go with teleportation. Traveling, even by plane, is just too long and boring. By the time you get there, you're so tired you could care less. And with half my friends being scattered around the country (and a few around the world), I could just pop in for a couple minutes and then be home again a few seconds later.

I'd love to be able to change ages. That is SO fun and SO practical. Want to get into an R rated movie? ZAP! Want to know what a wise old woman would thing of the situation? ZAP! Want someone to feed you from a baby bottle? ZAP!

Love,

Pixie, have you ever seen "what women want?" Those mind-reading powers are so dangerous!

I think I'd like to be able to stop time. I'd stop bombs from going off, triggers from being pulled, condoms from being broken or shrugged-off. I'd prevent alot of people from dying or from getting diseases or unintentionally pregnant.

Not to mention, I'd arrive places on time - I'd run while everyone else was frozen!

Oh dear. Flying would be nice.. along with some variant on invincibility, invisibility, AND not having any need for sleep. I'd need a perfect sense of direction, too.. and I'd need ta be able to fly approximately 14628 km in one second or so. Yep yep..

I think it's a tie for me between teleportation and mind reading. Although mind reading does have it's downsides...

I know! I know!

I would want the power to grant wishes, any wishes at all. For myself, my friends. But I would want to keep my free will, so if someone asked an awful wish I wouldn't be obligated to grant it. I could have ever so much fun...

Just wanted to bring this up to the forefront, since in the past few days I had considered "eradication of evil" to be a pretty good one...

Clairvioyance, or the ability to see the future, or what the future will be if you don't change it. Obviously useful from a financial perspective, but perhaps it could be used to prevent things like last tuesday.

I can't decide between flying and being telepathic. But I don't want to communicate just by words telepathically, I'd like to be able to mentally send pictures, sounds, taste, smell, temperature, texture...maybe even emotions. I wonder if my ex boyfriend would have been so mean if he could experience what I was feeling.

X-Ray vision, so I can see what people really look like and how their personality is before I meet them. If not that, then probably flying!

mind reading would rock pretty hard. but i think i am going to have to go with transmogrification (i think that is just calvin's word for it, never mind) or whatever it is called when you can shape shift, be a fly on the wall in any situation, rockin'! but the powers that batgirl has are pretty cool. though she was trained as an assasin and locked in a room when she was young with no light and no language so that she would become the most deadly assasin the world has ever known and only be able to speak and language of violence, she became a superhero working with batman (she is 100000000 times harder than him!) and learnt to talk. when she didn't have language she could read in a person't body lingo what movce they were going to try next. but when she learnt english she lost that ability and had to relearn it. i think it would be cool to be able to be a superhero that could read their oponent's moves before they even though of them themselves. i also think that it is sad that i read thses comice so i am going to go now!
