In honor of the recent rash of superpower threads, I must ask: If you discovered you had a superpower, how would you use it:
- for good (like most comic book heroes)
- for evil (like most comic book villains (hiss, hiss))
- for personal gain only
- some mix of 1, 2, & 3
- not at all
Also, how long do you think you could you hide your superpower(s) before being found out? Flying would be difficult, as would superspeed (ala the Flash). X-ray vision and telepathy would probably be easier.
For evil of course.
My number two pencil superpower? Why, I’d use my number two pencils for Machiavellian use only.
Curvebreaking Kid A: “Oh no…Scantron multiple choice test! I need a number two pencil!”
Zoggie: “Why certainly.” ::takes one out and gives Kid A a pencil wound:: “Now you’ve got a paper cut! You’ve got to go to the nurse! You can’t take the test! You forfeit!” ::laughs a la Sideshow Bob::
And my stuffed animal one? Well, i’d keep them on the bed so that I could torture them.
Most of them I can keep a lid on…I think.
I think a mix of 1 & 3. I mean come on, what is the use of x-ray vision if you wont look through women’s clothing?
To save time.
Fly to work, if I was late, reverse time a little.
Stuff like that, I suppose.
Fight crime? I’m not much of a fighter.
