What Super Ability Would You Possess?

Post by Amagine »

Alex has a super ability to travel through the internet and computers.

If you could possess a super ability, what would it be? What would you do with your ability?

If it were me, I would want the ability to travel inside any book that I open. I would just use the ability to hang out and chat with all of my favorite characters! :D

I would want to be invisible so I can go anywhere I want without needing a visa or a ticket. Wouldn't that be wonderful! I'm

I would be happy enough learning how to swim - I am surrounded by water and I cannot swim! An awesome super power would be being able to materialize objects by thinking about them.

Wow, Jaime! If I had that power, I'll think about lots and lots of money and give them away to the poor, haha.

If I was able to possess a super ability I would want invisibility. This ability would be so useful! I would use it daily...I don't like crowds so I could use it to disappear when I wanted.

Maybe teleportation. It would be spectacular!
Only if I could take others along. Otherwise, what good would it be?

Or the ability to understand anything. Like, look at some untranslated ancient writing and *POOF* I know what it says. And being able to understand/speak any language.

Ooo, I'd love to be able to read minds. Imagine sitting in a park and seeing what everyone around you thinks about. However, it might also cause a lot of issues.... maybe I need to rethink this one ?

I love that! I would love to be able to open a book and chat with the characters and see the scenes! Fabulous idea! I'll take that super power please!

I would choose the power of premonition. This is not to change events but to anticipate things so that I could prepare myself and others.

Well, according to the [urlhttp://powerlisting.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Random]Random Superpower Wiki[/url]...

Mine is Elemental Energy Manipulation.
"Users can create, shape and manipulate elemental energy (including elemental phenomena, such as storms and volcanic activity) the force created by the natural elemental forces: usually Air, Earth, Fire and Water, by using their own life force energy, or energy from an external force. Users can only use one as their major power, but may be able to use other elemental energies at a higher level. Some users can use elemental energy for offense, similar to how some beings use their own life energy."

Sounds like fun, I'll take it!

I also consider the power to read thoughts. If I have this power, I will volunteer in court to serve as witness and save the accused innocent or help the victim who has no money.

Hahaha! It would be a pretty awesome ability wouldn't it? I would use it for movies and TV shows too. I just want the ability to jump into any fictional world of my choosing.

Infinite knowledge? I would love to remember everything I am taught. I would love to be able to speak every language and memorize every detail.

Post by Natalie Charlene »

I actually just had this discussion this morning! After much consideration, I have decided that I would want to have super speed--basically The Flash's powers. With the increased speed comes faster healing, and just think how much money I could save never needing to buy gas, or heck, even a car! I could just run everywhere. And he has the ability to read extremely fast, too. I could get through a library in a day!

I would want the power to stop someone who is about to start bullying someone else. Just kind of invade their brain for a minute and stop what's about to come out of their mouth.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.
