Occasionally, a thought has occurred to me when I see the modern “crop” of superheroes in the media, mostly the gruesomely combat-focused ones. Namely; what would these guys do if they actually DID triumph over evil?
I mean, if by some miracle civilization managed to pull itself together and become a peaceful Utopia, there’s probably not going to be a lot of use for the guy with the metamutant ability to project laser knives out of his eyeballs, all the while brooding a lot.
Assuming, of course, that they wouldn’t just become new supervillains themselves. Which is, frankly, the most likely thing to happen. But that’s a whole 'nother line of hypothesizing, and best left for another day.
So, I ask you…what would be the most useful superpower to have, if you didn’t have to use it for fighting evil? Heck, bonus points if you use a preexisting comic character in an example.
