Writing about superheroes has gotten me thinking about this question. There are some pretty amazing superpowers in comic books and onscreen: flight, invisibility, teleportation, mind reading, super speed…
With teleportation, I could visit my family abroad in the blink of an eye and still be home in time for school pickup.
With super speed comes high metabolism. I wonder how many packs of double-stuffed Oreos the Flash can eat before he gains a single pound.
Flight would be amazing too. Being able to fly is one of my most common recurring dreams. Then again, in the dream I usually have to flap my arms. It’s not the most dignified spectacle.
There are lots of good options, but for me, the choice is clear. I’d choose telekinesis. Then, like Jean Grey, I could move objects with my mind AND fly (by moving my own body with my mind). Who doesn’t love a two-for-the-price-of-one deal? Just imagine the possibilities.
...Maybe it's best I don't get superpowers. I'm starting to sound like a villain!
But that’s just me. What about you? What superpower would you pick?
