i check around, and many have some sort of skill that they have which sets them apart. one guy can do math, another one knows how to spell.
those are super powers.
i am very good, at telling if food that is being warmed up in the microwave is ready. i need no annoying ping to tell me. its uncanny. imagine the highmark of microwave usage- popcorn. even that i can do. it doesnt mean that i can get all the kernels to pop, or prevent the pizza to be soggy. i am not a wizard. but i can make sure it nice and hot, and not burned, or overdone.
as for powers that i wish to have:
mind control- the ability to get people, including myself to change their minds in a way that agrees with me. its hard to imagine such a skill. i sure could use it with my cannibals.
healing and regenration - being sick and having sick people around is just ubearable. mental health also included.
enterprize- the power to actually be successful.. oh that would be a change..
If I had Super powers I
Option 1: Fire
Fire is an option because I have always loved fire. It's always been something I could stare at and watch dance for hours. I'd prefer it over a few wonders of the world!
Option 2: Flying
C'mon, everyone would love to fly!
Option 3: Super Speed
I would have super speed because I have always loved running. When I was ten, I was on a football team and when my coach would tell us to run, everyone but me would protest. I would ask for more. Running has always been something that makes me feel free.
I think I would be a hero because I have always cared about the lives of the people around me. I have always wanted to defend those in need not harm them.
Is it Cheating if Used for Good? Yes.
This isn’t the first time I thought about this. Should I pick super strength or telekinesis? Super speed and super intelligence? If I get to choose my own, I’ll only want two. Omniscience(all knowing) and omnipotence(all powerful). The two worst super powers a being could have. Why would it be? The absoluteness of those make them chaotically neutral or tyrannically selective. Especially in relation to human life. That’s why they’re never used in comic books or manga. Stop a crime, you’re a hero. Kill a genocidal manic as a kid with brutal death and you’re a villain. Cure a disease, you’re a savior. Wipe out a village that would produce nothing but terrorists by trapping them inside and burning them alive makes you a monster. Cure a disease, put an end to world hunger and create world peace and you’ll be seen as a God. Let everyone know you could have stopped the problem before it started but didn’t because you wanted everyone to recognize your power and you’re a psychopath. Like I said. Worst powers ever.
