you're a super-herogreenspun.com : LUSENET : splinters : One Thread
so if you were a super-hero, what would your name be, and what super-powers would you have?

I started an answer to this in my entry (http://www.darktapestry.com/splinters/journal.cgi?entry=200007231238) , but here you go anyway.
I'd like the power to stop time, and maybe one other one. I can't decide between being able to turn invisible or being able to fly. Flying would rock, but if you were the only one that could, it would probably suck sometimes. "Let's fly to L.A.! Oh, wait, you can't fly." See what I mean?
If those weren't options, I'd probably want an improvement on my only-seems-to-work-on-Sage Jedi mind trick thing. Recalcitrant idiots, beware.
I like the stopping time thing, though, but only if my net connection wouldn't stop with it.

Well I suppose I'd like the power to understand a womans mind. I fail every time so any help I can get..... As for a name, who knows?

I would not be a super hero, thank you kindly. I would be a super villain.
My power? Head-explodey, a la Nny in his trip to Hell. Godt that comic rocks.
My name? Mr. Explode-o

Sorry Empty. Angry Nuns beats head-explody. As for my super- power, I'd want something I could turn into an enjoyable career. Say, the ability to hypnotize people with my voice into buying millions of copies of my albulm, or the ability to flawlessly code in any programming language. Something I could exploit for money, since money is a necessity in this day and age.

I love questions like this. I would love to have the power to end famine, war and annoying loud-mouth trash-talking fuckheads like the one that followed me into Tower Records on Sunday to verbally attack me for flipping him off (which by the way he deserved......) How I would have loved to have the power to rip his vile tongue out of his fat head..... ahem. Can't think of a cool name though. Lately though, I like to call myself "AngryGirl".

to use all of the mind. every bit. and the rest is dreamscape, isn't it? at that point, names lose meaning anyway. there is no need for them.

Well, I've always been rather partial to the an advanced form of the shape changing ability that Mystique has. You can change your appearance, create any type of clothing you wished, even change into animals or modify the human shape (wings, claws, gills, etc.) This would also allow me to fly, certianly one of the most important abilities to me.
Although, I would find it rather enjoyable to have the power to give other people powers, either temporarily or permantly. It would make an incredible gift for someone.

Call me Vigilant Intelligent Sabotage and (Hazardous) Nullification Unit.
I shoot ultraviolet sparks, tanning those who dare oppose me. And looking for lint and arachnids in the dark.
I can walk on water but I prefer to ride.
Other skills include transliteration, obfuscation, and getting busy in the mini golf fields.
