    If you could have any superpower, like flying or x-ray vision, what would it be?

    I would have bullet-dodging speed, super intelligence, the ability to fly, the ability to lift things with my mind, and super physical strength. That's assuming I could have as many as I want, but if I had to choose one, it would probably be the heightened reflexes.

    X-ray vision would be really nice too. :D

    Would you use them for good or for evil?

    Extra-sensory perception like the Spidey-Sense would, I think, always be useful. :)

    And it's more fun to be evil.

    X-ray vision, super speed, flight. Forget all that crap, i want the power of magnetism to become the most powerful being on the planet. I wouldn't be evil, but would take over a country and make it my domain.

    Invisibility. I could go anywhere I wanted, and steal a large fortune.

    I'd like telekinesis (which is amazingly useful) and transformation. If I could, a little telepathy wouldn't hurt.

    I'm torn between the Power of Flight and the Power of Franchise [that means you can survive endless encounters with baddies like Vader or Voldemort because there are still movies to be filmed and books to be written!].

    Mind reading and the ability to see through clothes (both would DEFINITELY require an on/off switch!)

    But it wouldn't do you any good if they could see the pile of money walking off on it's own.

    I'd like to have an infinate number of wishes. And an undo button. Then when I stupidly say "I wish you would drop dead." I could take it back.

    I would like an impenetrable defensive capability that would electrocute anyone who tried to start something... :D. No offensive capabilities are neccessary with defense like that!!!

    So your g/f / spouse / s.o. comes up to kiss you and you electrocute them? Hmm. . . I dunno about that one.

    Lee's Summit, huh? Just saw that. I'm in JoCo, myself. (And no, I moved here, so I'm not stuck up. Well, not much.)

    I would have the ability to turn it on or off... or maybe something like the slow blade (hand :groucho: ) penetrates the shield...

    The most important superpower of all, is to have sufficient sense not to put your underpants over your trousers.

    I would like the power of mental domination - to subvert others to do my bidding.

    The power to predict the future.

    That way i could easily get rich, and I also would know all the stuff I need to surf through life without the need to be invisible, invulnerable, etc...

    Read minds, yet if that was too powerful, then something simple, like the ability to always know when someone is lying.
