If you were a superhero....greenspun.com : LUSENET : zootzie : One Thread
...what would your costume look like? super powers? special abilities? sidekicks?

I can't believe no one has responded to this one yet. My sidekick would be a very sexy babe. I'll have to give some thought to the super powers and costume....

hmmm... i would have to think twice about having a babe as a sidekick... i mean... yeah its the obvious choice at first glance... lots of perks and all... but then you also must consider all the possible fallbacks, i.e... lets say for instance you save a hot chick from a burning building... well you can just throw any thanks-for- saving-my-life-sex out the window if youve already got sexual tension going on with your sidekick... and then theres the whole PMS thing. I think the sidekick would have to be a dog. A rottweiler. Its perfect if you think about it. As for my costume... i would look very matrix. My super powers would be comparable to superman's powers except for i could manipilaute reality and i wouldnt give a damn about the good of the people. and instead of kryptonite, my only weakness would be all you can eat sushi buffets...

So Mike, you are going for the single superhero approach while I'm going for the sexy sidekick/girlfriend approach. Hmmmmm. I guess how good looking a superhero one was might influence matters here. As far as weaknesses, you should pick something more difficult to find. (I'm assuming you like sushi here). Like, say, an all you can eat Bulgarian buffet or something. That way your powers would only be weak in Bulgaria.
